News: Denver safety Quinton Carter continue to work back from a knee injury that kept him on the injured reserve for most of the season and is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to the team's official website. Im feeling good, Carter said as he cleaned out his locker. Being almost four months into the six-to-nine month recovery, I feel like its coming along well. I havent had any setbacks, any swelling. The doctors are all saying good things about it, so Im anxious about it.
Analysis: Everybody else is getting ready to go set off on the offseason, but Im still here working, Carter said in January. My mindset is just grind. Carter only appeared in three games before suffering a left knee injury that just never came around in 2012. In fact, the 24-year-old has only appeared in 19 games through his two seasons in the league. If healthy. Carter will have minimal Fantasy appeal heading into next season.
News: Broncos DB Quinton Carter left the game Saturday at Buffalo in Week 16 with a hamstring injury, coach John Fox said. He was replaced by rookie Rahim Moore.
Analysis: Carter has minimal Fantasy value when healthy. Ignore him in most IDP leagues in Week 17 against Kansas City even if he's able to play.
News: Denver DB Quinton Carter posted a season-high eight tackles during the Broncos' 38-24 victory at Oakland in Week 9. Carter, who suffered a concussion during his previous game against Detroit, also recorded a season best seven solo tackles on Sunday.
Analysis: Carter didn't show any lingering effects of a concussion as he replaced fellow Rahim Moore, who suffered a head injury himself on the game's first play. Carter is still seeking his first interception of the season and should remain a marginal option in Fantasy IDP formats.
News: Denver DB Quinton Carter was knocked out of the Broncos' Week 8 outing against Detroit with a concussion and won't return. That meant that rookie Rahim Moore , who was replaced in the starting lineup two weeks ago by Carter, got a chance to play again in the base defense.
Analysis: Carter recorded two tackles before departing and now has 14 total stops this season. The rookie safety does not have an interception this year and should remain a marginal option in Fantasy IDP formats.
News: Broncos safety Quinton Carters absence from Mondays practice was due to an irritated hamstring, according to coach John Fox. It is not exactly known when he suffered the injury.
Analysis: Carter may miss some time in the regular season if the issue lingers, but he is not expected to play much with the first-team secondary once the games count. Brian Dawkins and fellow rookie Rahim Moore should start at safety, so Fantasy owners should not consider Carter to be an option in IDP leagues for now.
News: The Denver Broncos selected safety Quinton Carter of Oklahoma in the fourth round. Carter had 96 tackles and four interceptions for the Sooners last season.
Analysis: Carter will give the Broncos some versatility and depth since he could play either safety position or work as a nickelback against big tight ends (he's 6 foot 1 and 208 pounds). We might see him line up at strong safety for the Broncos some day. He's worth a late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and rookie-only drafts.
