No. 3: DeAndre Carter, WR
The Houston Texans had some issues with the likes of Will Fuller and Kenny Stills staying healthy in 2019, and even though DeAndre Carter was with the team, he never really stood out like he has the potential to, meaning maybe it is time for the Texans to make a change in their depth at wide receiver.
As long as the Texans have their big three of DeAndre Hopkins, Fuller and Stills, there won’t be much in the area of offensive production for Carter anytime soon, unless there is some sort of injury. That said, the numbers of Carter from the 2019 season don’t jump off the page, either.
Carter had just 13 targets go his way from quarterback Deshaun Watson, and though he made 11 receptions for 162 yards on the season, none of them went for touchdowns. In the two playoff games, Carter made two receptions (on three total targets) for 22 yards and no touchdown. Carter was graded at 56.9 in the playoffs and at 60.0 for the ’19 regular season.
Maybe Carter can go to another team and get the possible reps he needs to stand out in the league, or to at least gain more in-game experience, but it isn’t likely with the current crop of wide receivers on the roster of the Texans.
With others sure to catch the eye of the franchise either in free agency, trade or the 2020 NFL Draft, Carter could be the odd man out when it comes to re-signing players this offseason.
