Carter had an up-and-down (but mostly down) 2021 season as he played out his rookie contract with the Giants. He didn't produce much for the beginning of the season, got injured in week 7, and didn't record his first sack until week 15. Carter finished 49th among edge rushers in total snaps, while finishing 60th in total pressures, 53rd in total sacks, and 25th in total tackles: relatively average efficiency. After leaving the Giants in the offseason, he signed a one-year deal with the Falcons who were desperately in need of help on the defensive line. During the NFL draft, Atlanta added Arnold Ebiketie at the top of the second round and DeAngelo Malone in the third. Ebiketie appears to have the talent to be a solid edge rusher, and Malone looks to be primarily a DPR, so there is some opportunity for Carter to see a decent amount of snaps. He saw a favorable portion of snaps in the Giants' rotation, and Falcons Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees has historically shown that he is willing to give high volume to edge rushers in the past. If Carter can edge (pun intended) out either Ebiketie or Malone, he would be in line for enough snaps to warrant rostering in most IDP leagues. Don't expect a ton of upside though, as Carter has shown himself to be league average at best. Note: Lorenzo Carter is listed as a linebacker on some platforms, which hurts his value in those leagues significantly.
