Short routes like that keep the db's from backing off of him too much, are very safe, are very quick making the OL's & Carr's job easier and make it dangerous for the opposing team to bring all the LB's and safeties in tight into the box. They'll take plenty of shots down field (hopefully with the QB's being more accurate--Bradford and AJ were wide open many times last year and overthrown) but look for this kind of play as well to be balanced and play on AJ's strength.
YAC are tough when you're already at the sidelines. And they didn't throw to him there much - he just ran the route.
