Carrier played just three offensive snaps and didn't receive a target during Saturday's 26-13 loss to Atlanta in the wild-card round. The 27-year-old tight end finished the season with eight receptions for 71 yards, as he failed to carve out a meaningful offensive role with Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett ahead of him on the depth chart. Considering Carrier followed first-year head coach Sean McVay from Washington to Los Angeles last offseason, his lack of playing time on offense reinforces his limited upside in the passing attack. Additionally, Higbee and Everett project to improve with experience. With Carrier set to become an unrestricted free agent, it will likely take a change of scenery for him to have a chance of generating fantasy value in 2018.
Carrier (hamstring) was full participant at the Rams' practice Wednesday, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports. Carrier sat out the previous two games with the hamstring issue but appears fully healthy as the Rams get ready for Sunday's game against the Saints. The 27-year-old will likely resume his role as a reserve tight end for Los Angeles.
Carrier (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Vikings, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports. Carrier hasn't really been a factor in the passing game this season, amassing just five targets all year. The Rams will mostly feel his loss on special teams, as Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett will remain the top tight ends in the passing game.
Carrier (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports. Carrier carried a doubtful designation ahead of this game, so this isn't much of a surprise. The third-year pro has four receptions on five targets for 43 yards and zero touchdowns. Undrafted rookie, Johnny Mundt, will pick up Carrier's leftover snaps.
The Rams have listed Carrier (hamstring) as doubtful for their Week 10 tilt against the Texans, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports. Carrier is the third tight end on the Rams' depth chart, so should he ultimately miss the contest it is unlikely to have any effect on the offense. Final confirmation on his status will likely be announced closer to game time Sunday.
