Player Notes
Dec 9 5:10pm ET

New England Patriots running back James White carried the ball four times for only 13 carries and added 15 receiving yards in the Patriots 34-33 loss to the Dolphins. White's most ineffective performance comes at a bad time for fantasy owners trying to stay alive in the playoffs. It has been a fantastic season for the veteran running back but this is now his second fantasy dud over his last four games played. The fact that teammate's Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead both are in the mix in the backfield further complicates White's potential moving forward. He still is, by far, the most talented option in the passing game among the running backs but White will have to share snaps for the rest of the season.

Dec 9 4:43pm ET

New England Patriots RB James White rushed for 13 yards on four carries against the Miami Dolphins in Week 14. He also caught two passes for 15 yards during the game.

Fantasy Spin: White received under 10 touches for only the fourth time this season and posted his second lowest yardage total of the season. He should receive more work next week and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Dec 4 4:30pm ET

New England Patriots running back James White will go up against a Dolphins defense that is allowing the fifth most fantasy points to opposing running backs this season. White, in particular, enjoyed a strong performance against Miami in Week 4, posting 44 rushing yards, 68 receiving yards on eight receptions and two total touchdowns. That stat line is the highest fantasy total the Dolphins have allowed to a running back in a single game this season and look for the Patriots to feature White once again. The veteran White will have borderline RB1 fantasy value in Week 14.

Dec 2 10:43pm ET

New England Patriots RB James White rushed six times for 26 yards in Week 13 against the Minnesota Vikings and he added seven catches for a team-high 92 yards on nine targets.

Fantasy Spin: White's receiving yardage was actually his highest total since he had 115 yards on Dec. 6, 2015 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 14 on the road against the Miami Dolphins.

Dec 2 8:10pm ET

New England Patriots running back James White caught seven passes for 92 yards in the Patriots 24-10 win over the Vikings. White also added 26 rushing yards and was a huge asset for quarterback Tom Brady in the passing game. The Vikings defense is a fast and aggressive unit but the Patriots worked hard to get the ball quickly out of Brady's hands and into White's. The veteran running back now has five games this season in which he has posted 90 yards from scrimmage or more. White will try and build off this performance against the Dolphins in Week 14.

Nov 29 4:40pm ET

New England Patriots running back James White will look to bounce back against a fierce Vikings defense in Week 13. White has 870 all-purpose yards this season with 67 receptions and 10 total touchdowns but is in the midst of a two-game funk. White has posted only 104 total yards over his last two games and has failed to find the end zone. The veteran will now face a Vikings defense that has not allowed a 100-yard rusher yet this season and has allowed only one receiving touchdown since Week 6. The Vikings feature a fast, aggressive defense so expect quarterback Tom Brady to attempt to get the ball out of his hands quickly. This could work in the favor of White's fantasy stat line, especially in PPR-leagues, for Week 13 and the veteran running back will have RB2 value with the fantasy playoffs on the line in many leagues.

Nov 25 9:53pm ET

New England Patriots RB James White rushed nine times for 73 yards in Week 12 against the New York Jets while adding one grab for five yards.

Fantasy Spin: White was very productive, averaging 8.1 yards per carry, but his touches will be limited going forward as long as Sony Michel is healthy again. Treat White as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues heading into Week 13, with lesser value in standard play.

Nov 25 5:00pm ET

New England Patriots running back James White carried the ball nine times for 73 yards in the Patriots 27-13 win over the Jets. White ran efficiently, averaging 8.1 yards per carry and even ripped off a 27-yard run in the game. The surprise was White's ineffectiveness in the passing game, catching only one pass for five yards on five targets. The veteran has been deadly catching the ball this season and came into the game with 66 receptions. Fantasy owners should be able to trust White next week against a tough Vikings defense that could be vulnerable in the check-down passing attack in Week 13.

From RotoBaller

Nov 19 5:10pm ET

New England Patriots running back James White will be fresh off of the bye week when the team takes on the Jets in Week 12. White is also coming off his worst statistical output of the season when he registered only 26 total yards in Week 10. But the veteran is having a career season with 10 total touchdowns and 792 yards from scrimmage. White will face a Jets defense that is allowing the 14th most fantasy points to opposing running backs, including six touchdowns to the position over their last four games. The Jets have done a solid job of preventing opposing running backs to spring free in the passing game but White's chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady this season has been unmatched. White has plenty of value as a solid RB2 for Week 12.

From RotoBaller

Nov 11 7:53pm ET

New England Patriots RB James White posted five grabs for 31 yards on eight targets in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans and he had one run for minus-5 yards.

Fantasy Spin: It was an ugly show all around for the Patriots offense, and White saw his touches chopped down with the return of Sony Michel. The Patriots are off in Week 11 before returning in Week 12.

Nov 11 5:20pm ET

New England Patriots running back James White dropped his first fantasy dud of the season in Week 10, catching only five passes and registering only 26 yards from scrimmage. The Patriots offense was stifled throughout the team's 34-10 loss to the Titans and White couldn't get anything going on offense. The return of rookie running back Sony Michel kept White out of the running game and he had only one rush for negative-five yards. White has been Mr. Consistent this season in the Patriots offense but this performance is most likely just a blip on the screen. The veteran running back is having a career season and will look to bounce back next week in Week 11.

From RotoBaller

Nov 7 4:20pm ET

New England Patriots running back James White looks to continue the best season of his career in Week 10 against the Titans. White has racked up 766 yards from scrimmage this season with 61 receptions and 10 touchdowns. He has scored in seven out of his nine games played this season but will have tough matchup against a Titans defense that is allowing the fourth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. The Titans have not allowed a single runner to post more than 70 rushing yards against them this season and have allowed two total touchdowns. The matchup is stiff but White is too good to be banished to the fantasy bench. White needs to be in all lineups and should continue to be very active in the passing game.

From RotoBaller

Nov 6 8:20pm ET

Patriots' RB James White scored 28.30 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 9 win against the Packers. White ran for 31 yards and caught six passes for 72 yards with two touchdowns. It's the 4th time this season White scored at least 25 fantasy points in a game.

Nov 5 12:10am ET

New England Patriots running back James White caught six passes for 72 yards while adding 31 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns in the Patriots 31-17 win over the Packers. White now has six games of 80 yards from scrimmage or more this season and has 10 total touchdowns. He left the action briefly in the first half as he appeared to tweak something in his leg but returned and later scored. The former Super Bowl MVP is having a career season and will try and keep it going next week against the Titans.

From RotoBaller

Nov 4 11:53pm ET

New England Patriots RB James White rushed 12 times for just 31 yards in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers, but he had two touchdowns. He also added 72 yards on six receptions on seven targets.

Fantasy Spin: White was solid for all fantasy owners despite the 2.6 yards per run. He was especially solid in PPR fantasy formats. He'll try to keep it going in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans.

Nov 4 11:53pm ET

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman posted six receptions for 71 yards on 10 targets in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers and he ran twice for 28 yards. He also had a 37-yard pass to RB James White.

Fantasy Spin: Edelman continues to be a solid fantasy option since return from his four-game suspension. He has four or more catches in each of his past five outings, and he has posted 216 total yards from scrimmage over the past two weeks. The Patriots travel to meet the Tennessee Titans in Week 10.

Oct 31 8:15pm ET

Patriots' RB James White scored 25.40 fantasy points in Monday's Week 8 win in Buffalo. White ran for 15 yards and caught 10 passes for 79 yards with one touchdown. It's the 3rd time this season White scored at least 25 fantasy points in a game.

Oct 31 5:00pm ET

New England Patriots running back James White has been one of the team's top passing target this season with 55 receptions for 459 yards and six receiving touchdowns. He also has 204 rushing yards with two rushing touchdowns and is the top running back in the backfield. White will have a tough matchup against a Packers defense that is allowing the 15th fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. Green Bay has also done a fantastic job limiting running backs to spring loose in the passing game and they have allowed only 202 receiving yards to running backs all season. White has six games of five receptions or more so he still should be able to post a solid stat-line, especially in PPR-leagues this weekend.

From RotoBaller

Oct 30 12:10am ET

New England Patriots running back James White caught a team-high 10 passes for 79 yards and added a rushing touchdown in the Patriots 25-6 win over the Bills. White totaled only 15 rushing yards but none more important than a 1-yard dive for a touchdown to put the game away. In a game when the Patriots ran the ball only 22 times, White was still able to produce in the passing game. White is having a fantastic season and will try and keep it going next week against the Packers.

From RotoBaller

Oct 30 12:03am ET

New England Patriots RB James White rushed eight times for 15 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Buffalo Bills while adding 10 receptions for 79 yards on 13 targets.

Fantasy Spin: White and Kenjon Barner were the only two active backs, and he averaged 1.9 yards per tote on the ground and Barner had just 2.0 yards per carry. Cordarrelle Patterson actually saw 10 runs for 38 yards to give the team somewhat of a rushing attack in a strange game. White is the fantasy back to own, however, especially in PPR formats.
