Just who is Tim Carter and why am I suggesting that picking him up is good fantasy football advice if you're looking for a guy at WR?

Carter was a second round pick of the Ginats in the 2002 NFL Draft. A speedy, but not big WR (6'0", 200 lbs), Carter has battled thru a myriad of injuries (ribs, back, achilles tendon tear, concussions, hamstring, hip, quad, and ankle) throughout his career while amassing 50 receptions, for 714 yards, and 1 TD his first 4 seasons. In limited time this season, Carter has put up 11 receptions for 153 yards and 1 TD. While not as sure handed as Toomer, Carter brings an element of speed that Toomer lacked. If he can stay healthy, a big if considering his history, Carter steps into an offense where Plaxico Burress will be the #1, Jeremy Shokcey demands attention from opponents, and Tiki Barber/Brandon Jacobs keep defenses honest in defending the run on almost any down. There's a young, developing stud, strong-armed QB in Eli Manning. Carter could surprise. I'm not syaing he's going to be great, or consistent in production. What I am saying is that there are so many mediocre WR's who sit on rosters as 4th or 5th WR's in many fantasy football leagues. What these guys provide is fairly well known and usually there's little upside to them. They are steady, but for lack of a better term, boring fill in's with little chance to break out and become worthy of starting consideration. And there are usually more guys, just like them available on your free agent or waiver wire. For my buck, I'd rather have a guy whom I don't know what to expect from, but has speed, a great team around him, and a real opportunity to become one of those mid-year surprise guys.

And if he doesn't pan out, there's always plenty of mediocre WR's out there to acquire.
On any given Sunday any fantasy team can beat another, only to still lose Monday night.
