2021 Fantasy Outlook
Carter was brought in to compete with Steven Sims and Isaiah Wright for what likely will be one job as a return specialist and depth receiver. Carters has the most experience on special teams, but he's unlikely to see many snaps or targets on offense even if he makes the Week 1 roster. Read Past Outlooks

Productive in Sunday's loss
WRWashington Football Team
October 10, 2021
Carter caught four of eight targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 33-22 loss to the Saints. He also gained 11 yards on his lone carry.
ANALYSIS
Pressed into a larger role in the offense with Dyami Brown (knee) and Cam Sims (hamstring) both out of action, Carter became even more important for Washington when Curtis Samuel left the game with a groin injury. Carter came into the week with only one catch on the year, but he could be poised for another productive effort in Week 6 against Kansas City.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2016
2015
Carter served as the Texans' primary return man on both punts and kickoffs in 2019. He eventually passed Keke Coutee on the depth chart and was the beneficiary of offensive snaps, including in the wild-card round playoff win over Buffalo, as Will Fuller V dealt with a groin injury late in the season. Houston's wideout landscape shifted dramatically during the offseason, which pushed Carter farther down the depth chart. He and Keke Coutee are competing for the fifth spot, but Carter's return skills gives him a leg up.
Carter came over to the Texans midseason in 2018 after he was released by the Eagles. He stepped into a good situation as Houston's offense spent large swaths of time without Will Fuller or Keke Coutee, or both. Those two are expected to be the No. 2 and 3 wide receivers behind DeAndre Hopkins, so Carter will need to do more than lineup at wideout. Often, the Texans use depth wideouts as returners, and that's where Carter will have to make an impact. Fuller's injury history will keep the door open to Carter and deep threat Vyncint Smith.
The 5-foot-8, 190-pounder is viewed as something of an undersized slot guy, and while the odds of Carter making the Patriots' final roster don't look great, he could end up sticking if injuries pile up given how sharp he's looked at times, a trend that dates back to the spring. If Carter doesn't survive the team's final cuts, a spot on the practice squad could be in order (assuming he goes unclaimed by other teams).
An undrafted free agent out of FCS Sacramento State, Carter had a very productive career and tests well athletically, but he's only 5-10, 185 pounds, and he didn't face much of a challenge in college. He'll compete for a a slot role with the Ravens, but he's more likely to stick around as a return specialist and depth receiver.
