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.

Playing time drops Week 2
WRHouston Texans
September 16, 2019
Carter played just one snap on offense in Sunday's 13-12 win over the Jaguars.
Keke Coutee's return to action resulted in a sharp decline in playing time for Carter, who dropped from 28 snaps in Week 1. For now, Carter will have to make his contributions as a return man; he returned one punt for five yards in this game.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
