New England Patriots RB James White rushed twice for four yards and caught one pass for five yards in a 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.
Fantasy Spin: After catching 15 passes in the division round, White wasn't part of the game plan in the Super Bowl. New England backs can be notoriously frustrating for fantasy owners, but White's role in the passing game should keep him in the flex conversation in PPR formats in 2019.
New England Patriots running back James White caught four passes for 49 yards, including 23 rushing yards, in the team's 37-31 win over the Chiefs to advance to the Super Bowl. One week after White caught 15 passes, the veteran running back was targeted only six times in the passing game. White already has one Super Bowl MVP under his belt and has enjoyed a career season with 85 receptions and 12 total touchdowns. He will certainly have to share time in the backfield with teammates Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead but White will see plenty of action against the Rams on February 3.
New England Patriots RB James White rushed six times for 23 yards and caught four of his six targets for 49 yards in a 37-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Fantasy Spin: It was a relatively quiet game for White, but you only need to look back one week at his 15-catch performance against the Los Angeles Chargers for a reminder of the type of production he is capable of providing.
New England Patriots RBs Sony Michel, James White and Rex Burkhead combined for 47 rushing attempts/targets and 254 yards from scrimmage in the divisional-round playoff win over the Los Angeles Chargers. The Kansas City Chiefs, the Patriots' opponent in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 20, surrendered the third-most total yards (2,709) to opposing running backs during the regular season.
Fantasy Spin: Among other things, the Patriots are notorious for relentlessly attacking an opponent's weakness, and with the New England pass-catching corps not in top shape (no Josh Gordon, a diminished TE Rob Gronkowski) look for plenty of work again for Michel, White & Co., on Sunday.
New England Patriots running back James White enjoyed a monster performance in the passing game against the Charger, catching 15 passes for 97 yards in the 41-28 playoff win. White was targeted a whopping 17 times as quarterback Tom Brady hit White in the flat constantly to move the chains. White is coming off of a career regular season and continued his production into the playoffs. White will, once again, be a top target in the Patriots offense next week against the Chiefs. The veteran running back posted 94 yards from scrimmage with five receptions against Kansas City on October 14 this season.
New England Patriots RB James White caught 15 passes for 97 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in the Divisional Round playoff game.
Fantasy Spin: White has been one of the top running backs in point-per-reception leagues this season and will continue to be a main option in the passing game for the Patriots. He should be a No. 2 running back or flex option in all leagues next week.
Patriots' RB James White had 15 receptions for 97 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's win against the Chargers.
New England Patriots running back James White will look to keep his fantastic regular season going when the team hosts the Chargers in the playoffs this weekend. White caught a career-high 87 receptions, racked up 1,176 yards from scrimmage with 12 total touchdowns as the most consistent runner in the Patriots rotating backfield. White's production tapered off to end the season but will go up against a Chargers defense that allowed the 10th most fantasy points to opposing running backs during the regular season. The Chargers have allowed 11 touchdowns to running backs since Week 11 and the Patriots may lean heavily on the running game to move the chains. White has plenty of sleeper value in DFS tournaments for this weekend's playoff action.
New England Patriots running back James White caught four passes for 39 yards and added 30 rushing yards with a touchdown in the Patriots 38-3 romp over the Jets. White capped off his career season with his 12th total touchdown of the year as the Patriots cruised to a playoff bye. White finishes the season with 87 receptions for 751 yards, 425 rushing yards and has been a weapon in the Patriots passing game out of the backfield. He will see plenty of work in two weeks when the Patriots postseason begins.
New England Patriots RB James White caught four passes for 39 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 17. He also rushed for 30 yards on four carries during the game.
Fantasy Spin: White has been involved in the running and passing game in every game this season and has recorded two touchdowns in the last two games. He should be considered a fine flex option in all playoff fantasy leagues.
New England Patriots RB James White rushed for 41 yards and one touchdown on eight carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 16. He also caught two passes for 13 yards during the game.
Fantasy Spin: White continues to be involved in the running and passing game but posted his first touchdown in six games against the Bills. He can be considered a flex option in all leagues next week against the New York Jets.
New England Patriots running back James White sprinted for a 27-yard touchdown, his 11th total score of the year, in the Patriots 24-14 win over the Bills. White racked 54 all-purpose yards in the game and scored the first time since Week 9. It has been a career season for the veteran but has struggled to maintain his fantasy productivity in the second half. White now has 1,107 total yards from scrimmage this season and should be on a snap-count next week now that the Patriots have clinched the playoffs.
New England RB James White needs to get the ball more often, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Tuesday, Dec. 18. In games when White has had at least 13 rushing attempts/targets this season, the Patriots are 9-0 and 0-5 when he's had 12 or fewer.
Fantasy Spin: White has had two of his three worst rushes/targets games (eight and nine) of the season the last two weeks as the Pats fell at Miami and Pittsburgh, but expect more work out of White and the N.E. RBs with the Patriots heavy home favorites the next two Sundays against the Bills and Jets.
New England Patriots RB James White finished with two runs for 12 yards in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he had five receptions for 25 yards on seven targets.
Fantasy Spin: With Sony Michel healthy, White has been taking a backseat and his fantasy upside is rather limited. He should only be relied upon as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 against the Bills.
New England Patriots running back James White totaled only 37 yards from scrimmage in the Patriots loss to the Steelers in Week 15. White lost snaps to running back Rex Burkhead and the Steelers defense has been fantastic at stopping running backs in the passing game. Both of these factors led to another down performance for White. The veteran got off to a fantastic start this season but has really tailed off over the past few games. Over his last five games, White has 20 receptions but for only 168 yards and has not scored a touchdown since Week 9. At this point, White should only be started in PPR-formats and will go up against a Bills defense that he posted 94 total yards with 10 receptions against in Week 8.
New England Patriots running back James White has been fantastic this season, posting 76 receptions, 1,018 all-purpose yards and 10 total touchdowns. But he could struggle this week against a Steelers defense that is allowing the seventh fewest fantasy points to opposing backs this season. White has been peppered with short passes from quarterback Tom Brady all year but will try and spring free against a Steelers defense that has allowed only 279 receiving yards to running backs all season. The Panthers Christian McCaffrey found success against the Steelers in Week 10 but fantasy owners need to prepare for White's 'bust' potential in Week 15.
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.
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.
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.
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.
