Coming into the season, the Washington Football Team offense appeared to have a slew of upgrades that would make it more dangerous than in 2020.
Signing Curtis Samuel and Adam Humphries and drafting Dyami Brown upgraded the wide receiver room. But, surprisingly, it's a different player that's making things interesting in the nation's capital.
After returning a kick for a touchdown in Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons and claiming the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors, Carter carved out a significant role for the second consecutive week against the New Orleans Saints.
Carter caught a team-high four passes for 62 yards in Sunday's 33-22 loss.
With Samuel "week-to-week" following the re-aggravation of his groin injury that held him out for the first three games of the season, Carter will likely be called upon to help fill the void.
