|Carter posted back-to-back 1000-yard seasons as part of a two-headed monster with Javante Williams for Mack Brown and the Tar Heels. At 5-8 and just over 200 pounds, Carter does not possess the prototypical size of a workhorse NFL back, and his mediocre combine stats likely attributed to Carter falling to the fourth round.
Although he is not the biggest or the fastest player, he is elusive, and according to Connor Hughes of The Athletic, he looks primed to take over the 1A role in the Jets running back rotation. Hughes believes the Jets will use a similar rotation used by the 49ers, with Carter eventually taking the first spot along with Tevin Coleman, La'Mical Perine, and Ty Johnson.

|RB Tevin Coleman and CB Michael Carter II, both with concussions, are OUT for Sunday.
WR Elijah Moore (quad) is questionable. He will test it today and tomorrow. He’s day to day. #Jets (Rich Cimini on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Jets are thin at running back. They aren't recommended fantasy plays but if you're desperate your options are Ty Johnson and Austin Walter. Johnson has more value in PPR leagues but the Saints have been good against RBs this season giving up the fewest fantasy points to the position.
| Michael Carter expected to miss 2-3 weeks|

FFToday's Take: Carter had been playing well in the Jets offense, especially in the passing game making him a solid RB2 in PPR leagues since Week 5. Tevin Coleman and Ty Johnson should handle the bulk of running back duties moving forward. The Jets have @HOU, PHI, NO and @MIA the next four weeks.
