2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Loses fumble in playoff loss
WRHouston Texans
January 14, 2020
Carter caught his lone target for 17 yards and lost a fumble on a kickoff return in Sunday's 51-31 playoff loss to the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
In the midst of Houston's second-quarter collapse, Carter had the ball dislodged on a kickoff return, setting up Kansas City's third touchdown. To be fair, this was a team-wide disaster, but Carter's fumble fueled the Chiefs' gathering momentum after they had fallen behind 24-0. He finished the regular season with 11 catches on 14 targets for 162 yards, while averaging 22.0 yards on kickoff returns and 9.7 yards on punt returns. The 26-year-old was Houston's primary returner and supplanted Keke Coutee as the No. 4 wideout at the end of the year. Carter enters the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent, meaning the Texans can retain him with a one-year, league-minimum contract.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
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.
