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.

Brings in only target

November 5, 2019
Carter caught his only pass for an eight-yard reception during Sunday's 26-3 win over Jacksonville. He added a 19-yard kick return.
Carter, the only Texan to return a punt or kick this season, looked like he was growing into a bigger role on offense in Week 8 with a 46-yard reception. His workload didn't expand Sunday however, even with Will Fuller (hamstring) out again. The sophomore receiver has been squeezed this season in a crowded receiving corps due in part to the offseason addition of Kenny Stills. Carter recorded at least three targets in four of his last five games of 2018, but has just one such outing in 2019 with more mouths to feed in the Texans offense. A favorable matchup against Baltimore's 26th-ranked pass defense awaits after the Texans' bye, but don't count on Carter getting enough targets to take advantage.

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.
