|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.

Veteran snags top role heading into Week 1

|Tevin Coleman is listed as the RB1 on the Jets Week 1 depth chart.
FFToday's Take: Ty Johnson and rookie Michael Carter just didn't have enough of a grasp of the offense heading into Week 1, leaving Coleman as the default RB1 headed into the matchup against Carolina. Coleman isn't the sexiest option but he should be considered in some deeper fantasy formats against the Panthers.

|Michael Carter had a nice training camp; he’s among the more elusive backs I’ve seen in my time on the beat; but this is going to be a three-man rotation. Tevin Coleman, Ty Johnson and Carter will all see their share of snaps in the regular season, with La’Mical Perine working in as the goal-line, short-yardage back. (The Athletic - Connor Hughes)|
FFToday's Take: Hughes goes on to say "the best way to describe how the Jets plan to use their running backs is to look to the 2019 49ers. In that season, Coleman ran for 544 yards and six touchdowns, Raheem Mostert rushed for 772 yards and eight TDs and Matt Breida tallied 623 yards and one score. Carter should still be expected to be the most valuable member of this group for fantasy purposes, but it appears he will have an uphill battle to be worthy of regular flex consideration.
