2021 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Michael Carter in 2021. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Heading into 2021 draft
Personal
December 21, 2020
Carter announced Monday that he won't play in North Carolina's Jan. 2 Orange Bowl matchup with Texas A&M and will instead begin preparations for the 2021 NFL Draft, Ross Martin of 247Sports.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The senior running back would have had the option of returning to Chapel Hill for a fifth year in 2021 with the NCAA granting all players blanket waivers in light of the pandemic-affected 2020 season, but Carter has elected to get his professional career underway. He formed a dynamic one-two tandem out of the backfield with Javonte Williams this season, finishing his final campaign at North Carolina with 1,512 yards from scrimmage and 11 touchdowns in 11 games. With Carter sitting out the bowl game, Williams should be in store for an even greater workload than normal as the Tar Heels' clear top back.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Carter led the Heels with 1,003 rushing yards in 2019, and formed one of the nation's best backfield duos with Javonte Williams, who finished with 933. There in lies the problem, as the two produce at nearly an identical clip, with Carter taking 177 carries (5.7 ypc) and Williams 166 (5.6 ypc). Williams led the way with five touchdowns, and while Carter provided three, they all came in one contest against FCS Mercer. Carter did find the end zone eight times in 2017, and is likely do some touchdown progression here, but this is, albeit successful, a full fledged timeshare. There are 48 carries and three scores up for grabs thanks to the departure of Antonio Williams, and the Heels return their entire passing game as well, so defenses will be kept honest. Carter seems to profile best as a depth option in larger player pools, with expectations of matching 2019 likely being a best case scenario.
