  • Jets' Michael Carter: Totals 690 yards in second season

    Carter rushed three times for four yards and caught two of three targets for one yard in Sunday's 11-6 loss to the Dolphins. Carter struggled down the stretch along with the entire Jets offense. He totaled 402 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 114 carries while catching 41 of 554 targets for 288 yards over 16 appearances in 2022. Carter was used primarily in a change-of-pace role in his second NFL season, and he'll likely see similar usage in 2023.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Just five total yards in Week 17

    Carter rushed once for two yards and caught two of three targets for three yards in Sunday's 23-6 loss to Seattle. Carter was used sparingly while Ty Johnson and Zonovan Knight racked up eight rushing attempts apiece, totaling 46 and 27 yards, respectively. New York's injury-riddled offense has fallen apart down the stretch, and Carter hasn't mustered more than 21 rushing yards in a game since Week 9. The 2021 fourth-round pick will wrap up his second NFL season against the Dolphins in Week 18.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Leading receiver in Week 16 loss

    Carter rushed twice for six yards and brought in all five targets for 44 yards in the Jets' 19-3 loss to the Jaguars on Thursday night. The conventional Jets ground attack was an abject failure Thursday -- Carter, Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson combined for 11 yards on 10 carries -- but Carter found a way to salvage his night somewhat with his work through the air. The second-year back paced the Jets in receptions and receiving yards, with both totals also serving as his second highest of the campaign. Given the general state of disarray the Jets' offense is in, it's difficult to predict if there will be a clear-cut early-down back between Carter and Knight in a Week 17 road matchup against the vulnerable Seahawks run defense a week from Sunday.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Five touches in Week 15

    Carte rushed four times for 15 yards and caught his only target for 16 yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Lions. After going without a touch well into the third quarter, Carter made a spectacular play to bail out quarterback Zach Wilson, plucking a sitting duck of a throw out of the air for a 16-yard gain. Carter was rewarded with rushing attempts on the next two plays, which went for a combined nine yards. He added two more carries over the course of the game and was more effective on a per-touch basis than Zonovan Knight, who mustered only 23 yards on 13 carries. Carter may get more touches Thursday against the Jaguars if Knight struggles early, though New York could also opt to reintroduce James Robinson (coach's decision) into the backfield mix against Robinson's former team.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Struggles in return from injury

    Carter (ankle) rushed five times for five yards and caught three of six targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 20-12 loss to Buffalo. He also lost a fumble. Carter ceded most of the backfield opportunities to Zonovan Knight, who rushed for 71 yards and New York's only touchdown on 17 attempts. The former also lost a crucial fumble just outside the red zone with the Jets trailing by 11 in the fourth quarter. This disastrous performance won't help Carter cut into Knight's workload in Week 15, though there could be enough opportunities to go around for both Jets running backs to find success against the leaky Lions run defense.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Active, could cede work to Knight

    Carter (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Bills. Carter is back in action following a one-game absence, and with James Robinson a healthy scratch, the former will be part of a Week 14 backfield that also includes Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson. When healthy, Carter had been serving as the Jets' top back since Breece Hall suffered a season-ending knee injury Week 7, but Rich Cimini of ESPN.com suggests that Knight could claim a larger portion of the team's carries versus Buffalo on the heels of two straight strong efforts in relief of injured Carter.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Set to practice fully

    Carter (ankle) is slated to practice fully Wednesday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports. Carter is thus poised to return to action this Sunday against the Bills following a one-game absence. The second-year is expected to reclaim a solid share of the Jets' backfield touches, though head coach Robert Saleh said Wednesday that Zonovan Knight is in line to remain part of the rotation, according to Al Iannazzone of Newsday. Ty Johnson and James Robinson round out the Jets' backfield ranks, with one of the two likely to be a healthy inactive this weekend.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Inactive Sunday

    Carter (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Carter, who is dealing with a reported low-ankle sprain, didn't practice this past week before being deemed doubtful for the contest. In Carter's absence, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network relays via coach Robert Saleh that the Jets plan to utilize a backfield-by-committee in Week 13 that will include rookie Zonovan Knight, Ty Johnson and James Robinson. Of the three, Knight, who carried 14 times for 69 yards and caught all three of his targets for 34 yards in relief of Carter last weekend versus Chicago, looks like the upside play, though Johnson (five carries for 62 yards and TD, plus one catch for 16 yards against the Bears) should also factor in, while Robinson (a healthy scratch last week) will look to reclaim a role in New York's backfield in his return to the mix. Carter's next chance to return to the lineup will arrive in Week 14 when the Jets face the Bills on the road.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Likely out Sunday

    Coach Robert Saleh said Friday that Carter (ankle) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Vikings, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports. The 23-year-old was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday, and it appears his outlook hasn't significantly improved Friday. Carter isn't expected to be available Sunday in Minnesota, which opens the door for Ty Johnson, Zonovan Knight and possibly  James Robinson to take on expanded roles in Week 13.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Not practicing Thursday

    Carter (ankle) wasn't spotted at practice Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Carter didn't practice Wednesday, so what he's able to do Friday will be key with regard to his chances of suiting up Sunday against the Vikings. If Carter ends up missing the contest, Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson would be in line for expanded roles in Week 13, while James Robinson, who was a healthy inactive this past weekend, could also reenter the Jets' backfield mix.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Considered day-to-day

    Coach Robert Saleh said Monday that Carter has a low-ankle sprain and is considered day-to-day, Connor Hughes of SNY.tv reports. Saleh added that he'll have more information Wednesday, when the team begins Week 13 prep, but as of Monday, it appears Carter will have a chance to play Sunday against the Vikings. This appears to be the best-case scenario for the running back, as Saleh specifically noted Carter didn't suffer a high-ankle sprain, per Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record. With Breece Hall (knee) on IR, Carter appears to be the team's No. 1 back ahead of Ty Johnson, Zonovan Knight and mid-season acquisition James Robinson, the latter of whom was a healthy scratch for Week 12.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Likely has ankle sprain

    Coach Robert Saleh said Carter likely suffered a sprained ankle during Sunday's 31-10 win against the Bears, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. At the time of his departure in the second half, Carter had six carries for 21 yards and hauled in both of his targets for 15 yards. Saleh noted the Jets will have more information regarding Carter's injury Monday, so testing seemingly is in store to learn its extent. With Breece Hall (knee) on injured reserve and James Robinson a healthy scratch Sunday, Ty Johnson and Zonovan Knight were New York's healthy and available running backs by the end of Sunday's contest.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Exits Sunday's game

    Carter was forced out of Sunday's game against the Bears with an ankle injury. Prior to his exit from the contest, Carter had carried six times for 21 yards and caught two passes for 15 yards. In his absence, added backfield touches are available for Zonovan Knight and Ty Johnson.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Start Him in PPR (Lineup Decisions)

    The Jets' QB change should be great news for Michael Carter and James Robinson, as Mike White tunneled on running back targets during his time on the field last season, including peppering Carter and Ty Johnson with 16 targets in his relief debut, then feeding the pair 20 targets in his 405-yard starting debut. Dave is starting Carter in PPR over D'Andre Swift, Latavius Murray and Cordarelle Patterson.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Sleeper RBs

    Carter and James Robinson should both benefit with Mike White taking over as the starting quarterback for the Jets. White played the majority of three games for the Jets in 2021, and Carter had 21 catches over that span, including two outings with at least eight receptions for 67 yards. We'll see how the Jets use Carter and Robinson against Chicago, but both should be considered high-end flex options. The Bears have allowed eight touchdowns to running backs in their past five games, and Carter and Robinson both scored touchdowns in the same game as recently as Week 9 against Buffalo. Hopefully, the same thing happens again in Week 12.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Bottled up in Week 11 loss

    Carter rushed eight times for 19 yards and caught one of two targets for minus-2 yards in Sunday's 10-3 loss to New England. Carter ran for only seven yards on four carries in the first half, but James Robinson mustered just three yards on three rushing attempts as New York's running game was bottled up. Things didn't get much better for either running back after halftime, as New York mustered only 59 rushing yards collectively, and a team-high 26 of those came from quarterback Zach Wilson. The entire Jets offense laid an egg in this one to drop to 6-4, but a bounce-back opportunity awaits in Week 12 at home against the 3-8 Bears.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    If the game gets away from the Jets, Carter will cling to whatever targets he gets to salvage his stat line. If the game is competitive (or if the Jets surprise us again), Carter would obviously have a chance at a better Fantasy outing but still wouldn't have a guarantee for 15 touches or anything like that. I'd rather start Isiah Pacheco, Antonio Gibson, Brian Robinson and Melvin Gordon.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: RBs to Sit

    We'll see how the second week of Carter and James Robinson working in tandem goes for the Jets, but Fantasy managers should stay away from this backfield against the Bills. Last week against New England, Carter had seven carries for 26 yards and four catches for 35 yards on seven targets. Meanwhile, Robinson had five carries for 17 yards and no catches on one target. I'd trust Carter over Robinson for this week, but the Bills are No. 5 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to running backs. Buffalo has allowed only five total touchdowns to running backs this year and just four guys to top 12 PPR points.

  • Jets' Michael Carter: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    The only way Fantasy managers should confidently start Carter as anything more than a middling flex is if Robinson is ruled out. Even then, Carter figures to share to some degree with someone else because this coaching staff has rarely trusted him to be their lead back. Maybe he shows out this week, but it feels unlikely given the matchup. I'd rather start Latavius Murray and Brian Robinson.
