New England Patriots
The New England Patriots officially placed running back James White (hip) on injured reserve Friday, ending his season. He suffered a hip subluxation in Sunday's loss to the Saints and will miss the remainder of the season. The 29-year-old finished the season with 10 carries for 38 yards and a touchdown and 12 receptions for 94 yards over three games in 2021. Brandon Bolden, J.J. Taylor, and Rhamondre Stevenson should see an expanded role while White is sidelined. White will rehab and look to return for the 2022 season.
After further medical examinations this week, New England Patriots running back James White (hip) is expected to miss the rest of the season. White should be placed on season-ending Injured Reserve at some point this week. It's a tough blow for the Patriots backfield and for fantasy managers that had White rostered in PPR leagues. The 29-year-old was the team's clear favorite on passing downs, and he had 10 carries for 38 yards and a touchdown and 12 receptions for 94 yards in the first three games of the season. Damien Harris can't be trusted to pass block, so Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor could split third-down snaps moving forward. Rookie Rhamondre Stevenson should also see a bigger role the rest of the way.
New England Patriots running back James White (hip) will be sidelined indefinitely after undergoing further testing on Monday. White suffered a hip subluxation, so a stint on the injured reserve list is the likely outcome moving forward. In White's absence, rookie Rhamondre Stevenson, who was impressive in the preseason, could be in for some more action after getting just two touches through the first three weeks of the regular season. Having said that, Damien Harris will continue to serve as the lead back, and J.J. Taylor will likely see increased playing time if the coaching staff continues to shelter the rookie running back. Moving forward, the only reliable fantasy asset in the New England backfield is Harris considering he is the clear No.1 option and has a predictable workload on a weekly basis. Taylor and Stevenson can be stashed in deep formats, but they need a lot to unfold before they have any sort of starting lineup appeal.
New England Patriots running back James White was carted off the field during Sunday's Week 3 contest against the New Orleans Saints and has been ruled out with a hip injury. He had one carry for six yards and didn't record a reception before exiting. New England's primary receiving back, an extended absence for White would lead to more usage for J.J. Taylor on passing downs.
New England Patriots running back James White has been a reliable PPR option through the first two games of the season. He has at least six catches for 45 yards in each game thus far. The hope is that he'll continue to stay involved, especially with Damien Harris (hand) being limited in practice. The problem is, White will get a matchup against the New Orleans Saints who allowed the fewest fantasy points to running backs last season. Despite that, White should get his targets and be on the radar as a flex option in PPR formats for Week 3.
New England Patriots running back James White did a little bit of everything during the Week 2 matchup with the New York Jets. He rushed five times for 20 yards and one touchdown. White also hauled in all six of his targets for 45 yards in the victory. The Patriots didn't have to do much with the Jets giving up the ball left and right in this one. White continues to be the safety net for rookie quarterback Mac Jones. Through two games, White already has 12 receptions on 13 targets and there should be plenty more of it in Week 3. Fantasy managers should consider White a solid flex option in PPR formats for their battle with the New Orleans Saints.
New England Patriots running back James White was able to get significantly involved during the Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He only carried the ball four times, but hauled in six receptions through the air. The Patriots could lean on White more frequently now after Damien Harris had a critical fumble late in Week 1. That means, White could see more action on the ground and would still be involved in the passing game. The New York Jets defense is fairly average when it comes to stopping opposing backs. Fantasy managers should certainly consider White a safe option at flex for Week 2.
New England Patriots running back James White saw heavy usage during the Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The veteran back only rushed four times for 12 yards, but hauled in six of his seven targets for 49 yards through the air. It seems that White will continue to be the safety net for the Pats' quarterbacks. Fantasy managers in PPR formats should be happy with what they received from White in this one. The hope is that White will do better against a weak Jets defense in Week 2. White should have flex value in PPR formats for that one.
New England Patriots running back James White was not effective in the passing game last season. Despite having Cam Newton behind center, New England couldn't find a way to get White the ball. He finished with 375 yard through the air, which was his lowest since the 2015 season. White will begin the season with a tough matchup against the Miami Dolphins. A defense that allowed one receiving touchdown to opposing backs last season. There should be plenty of PPR value for White this season, but he's probably best used on the bench in Week 1.
New England Patriots running back James White has spent the first seven years of his career with this organization. However, a change of scenery might've be the best for his fantasy value. Despite that, he signed a one-year deal with New England over the offseason. As of right now, Damien Harris is expected to be the lead back for this offense. Both Sony Michel and White should get touches as well. However, most of White's value comes off screens as a pass-catcher in the backfield. He might be able to sustain fantasy value while Cam Newton is under center. Although, once the inevitable happens and Mac Jones take over then we'll see how White fairs in the backfield. White probably won't be anything more than bench depth or a streaming option in most formats.
The New England Patriots re-signed running back James White to a one-year, fully guaranteed $2.5 million deal on Wednesday, according to a source. The 29-year-old spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Pats after he was taken in the fourth round of the 2014 draft. The three-time Super Bowl champion is viewed as the team's top pass-catching back, but it's fair to wonder how much fantasy upside he has with quarterback Cam Newton returning for another season. White had 49 catches last year and has 369 in his career. He rejoins a backfield that includes Damien Harris, Sony Michel, J.J. Taylor and Brandon Bolden. White will only be an RB3/flex option in deep PPR leagues, but fantasy managers can probably expect more headaches with New England's backfield on a weekly basis.
Several teams are inquiring about New England Patriots free-agent running back James White, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a source. The Bucs already have Ronald Jones II, but Leonard Fournette and veteran LeSean McCoy are both free agents, so Tampa might be looking to add White to the mix. White has experience with quarterback Tom Brady from their time together in New England as well. The 29-year-old running back has seen his rushing role diminish in recent seasons, and he had just 35 carries for 121 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games in 2020. But he also added 49 receptions on 62 targets for 375 yards and an additional touchdown. White could become interesting again in PPR leagues if he joins Brady and the Bucs in a more substantial pass-catching role.
New England Patriots running back James White had arguably the worst season of his career in 2020. He was a non-factor in the running game as he finished with a total of 121 rushing yards. However, White was able to make an impact in the receiving game during the Week 17 win over the New York Jets. He hauled in four of his seven targets for 31 yards and one touchdown in the win. White will be a free agent this offseason, so his fantasy value is dependent on where he lands. Honestly, it would be pretty difficult for his value to get worse than it was this season.
New England Patriots running back James White is having the worst season of his career in 2020. The veteran back has a total of 121 rushing yards heading into Week 17. To be fair, White does most of his damage in the receiving game. However, he only has 334 receiving yards, which is the worst since his rookie season where he played three total games. Quarterback Cam Newton has been unable to build any chemistry with White all season long. Don't expect much to change against the New York Jets this week.
New England Patriots running back James White is having the worst year of his career, and it didn't get any better in Week 16 against the Bills on Monday night. He rushed four times for 14 yards and caught three passes for 23 yards in the loss to the Buffalo Bills. Damien Harris (ankle) was sidelined, but that didn't seem to increase White's workload. He'll remain off the fantasy radar against the New York Jets in Week 17.
New England Patriots running back James White has been a frustrating player to roster this season. He has a total of 107 rushing yards on the season, so basically all of his fantasy value comes from the air attack. Quarterback Cam Newton and White have failed to find any sort of chemistry all season long. It's unlikely that White has a successful game against the tough Buffalo Bills Defense in Week 16. White can be considered a low-end flex option in PPR formats for Week 16.
New England Patriots running back James White made the most of his chances against the Miami Dolphins in Week 15. He rushed two times for three yards, but made most of his impact in the passing game. White hauled in all four of his targets for 52 yards in the loss to Miami. He continues to have minimal fantasy value with quarterback Cam Newton under center. It's tough to imagine things getting better for White against the Buffalo Bills next week. He'll likely be a low-end flex option in PPR formats.
New England Patriots running back James White (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. With Damien Harris (foot) out, White should see increased work, as he'll be competing with Sony Michel and J.J. Taylor for touches. White has just seven catches in the last three games and eight carries, so the low floor keeps him off of the fantasy radar in everything but the deepest leagues, though he might be an interesting GPP option.
New England Patriots running back James White (foot) is expected to suit up against the Dolphins in Week 15. With Damien Harris (ankle)already ruled out, White could be looking at more opportunities against Miami, though the veteran back has failed to produce in recent weeks. He's been held under four receptions in five of his last seven games, making him hard to trust heading into Week 15. Look at him as an RB4 who should only be started by desperate fantasy managers in PPR formats.
New England Patriots running back James White has not been able to do much damage over the last few games. However, White is the primary receiving back on this team, so there should be plenty of chances for him. Sadly, he doesn't have great upside heading into a matchup with the Miami Dolphins in Week 15. A defense that has done a solid job at stopping opposing running backs this season. Possibly, White could hold some low-end PPR value, but he belongs on the bench in most formats this week.
New England Patriots running back James White was unable to get anything going against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14. He rushed three times for 16 yards and caught one pass for two yards through the air in the loss. White is the primary receiving back, but the Pats have failed to get him significantly involved lately. It's difficult to imagine White having much success versus the Miami Dolphins next week. He probably should remain on the fantasy bench for that one.
New England Patriots running back James White has struggled to get much going on the ground this season. Luckily, he has been able to carry some fantasy value because of his ability to catch the ball in the backfield. He struggled in the victory over the Los Angeles Chargers last week. However, fantasy owners can be hopeful for a bounce back performance in Week 14. He'll get a matchup against the defense Los Angeles Rams Defense this week. White should get chances in the passing game, so he's looking like a possible low-end flex option in PPR leagues.
New England Patriots running back James White was a non-factor during the Week 13 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. He did not see a single rushing attempt with Damien Harris and Sony Michel splitting up the carries in the backfield. White hauled in three of his four targets for one yard through the air. White simply wasn't needed in this game, so fantasy owners can hope for better results next week. He'll be a low-end flex option in PPR leagues versus the Los Angeles Rams in Week 14.
New England Patriots running back James White has been lackluster on the ground lately, but continues to carry fantasy value. Last week, White finished with 18 total rushing yards, but scored two touchdowns, which saved his fantasy value. The Pats are going to continue getting White involved whether it's on the ground or through the air. The Los Angeles Chargers haven't been able to stop running backs this season, which makes White a solid flex play for Week 13.
New England Patriots running back James White struggled on the ground, but gave fantasy owners a decent performance in Week 12. He rushed five times for 18 yards with two touchdowns in the win over the Arizona Cardinals. Damien Harris handled the lead back duties, but White was able to score the touchdowns in this one. The Pats are in desperate need of weapons on offense, so White should continue getting involved. He should be a safe flex option next week.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
