Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is not listed on the Week 14 injury report. So he'll be back for Sunday's game vs. the Bills -- and should be at least close to 100%. The question now becomes how touches will be divvied in this backfield. HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday that RB Zonovan Knight is "not going anywhere," so expect him to remain significantly involved. RBs Ty Johnson and/or James Robinson also might continue to mix in. It's a messy situation and a tough matchup this weekend.
Jets RB Zonovan Knight handled 15 of the Jets' 20 RB carries in Sunday's loss at Minnesota. He ran for 90 yards (6.0 per rush), with more than half of that coming on a 48-yard scamper. Knight added 5 catches for 28 yards on 5 targets. RB Ty Johnson beat him in targets, catching 6 of 7 for 38 yards. James Robinson ranked 2nd in carries, with 4, gaining just 10 yards. HC Robert Saleh said the team planned a committee approach, but Knight operated as the clear leader in Michael Carter's absence (ankle sprain). We'll see about Carter's status for next Sunday's trip to Buffalo.
Jets RB Michael Carter (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday s game vs. the Vikings. He didn t practice all week and should obviously be on fantasy benches. Carter s absence would leave New York s backfield to Zonovan Knight, James Robinson and Ty Johnson. Knight would be the best bet for touches and a viable RB3 or flex play in fantasy.
Ankle injury RB Michael Carter and RT Cedric Ogbuehi are listed as DOUBTFUL for Sunday, per Saleh. S Ashtyn Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out. #Jets (Rich Cimini on Twitter) FF Today's Take: Carter left last week's game with an ankle injury and the Doubtful tag means he'll likely be on the Inactive list on Sunday. That means we'll see more of Zonovan Knight, Ty Johnson and perhaps James Robinson who was a healthy inactive last week. Knight is the probably the most intriguing of the bunch from a fantasy perspective while Johnson could operate more on third downs.
