2020 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Carter signed with the Washington Football Team on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Undrafted back in 2015, Carter has played 32 of his 43 NFL games for the Texans, logging 63 punt returns, 45 kick returns and 34 receptions. He's entering his age-28 season and still hasn't scored a touchdown in the NFL, but Carter nonetheless could fit with Washington as a return specialist and backup slot receiver. Come training camp, he'll compete with the likes of Steven Sims and Isaiah Wright, while Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel and Adam Humphries figure to see most of the first-team snaps.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2016
2015
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.
