New England Patriots running back James White caught seven passes for 59 yards in the team's 33-0 demolishing of the Jets in Week 7. White tallied zero yards on five rushes in the game but was his usual active self in the passing attack. The veteran is now averaging 7.5 receptions over his last four games, propping up his value in PPR leagues only moving forward. The bad news is that White is far behind his touchdown production from last season, heading into Week 8 with only one touchdown after posting 12 scores in 2018.
New England Patriots RB James White rushed five times for no gain in Week 7 against the New York Jets, but he had seven receptions for a game-high 59 yards on eight targets.
Fantasy Spin: White remains a solid RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams with lesser appeal in standard play. The Patriots host the Cleveland Browns in Week 8.
New England Patriots running back James White will be on the fantasy radar as a solid PPR play in Week 7 against the Jets. White is far off his production from last season but has been active the past three games. White has 23 receptions for 149 yards during that span and the Jets have allowed nine catches for 97 yards to running backs over their last two games. The veteran's role is mostly in the passing game for the Patriots offense and the team may look White's way with nagging injuries running through the wide receiver group at present. White will have FLEX value in Week 7 but it would be wise to deploy him in PPR leagues only.
New England Patriots RB James White caught nine passes for 46 yards in Week 6 against the New York Giants. He also lost a yard on two carries.
Fantasy Spin: White appeared to have a touchdown late in the first half, but it was overturned on replay review and Brandon Bolden wound up punching it in from a yard out. Although the versatile back continues to be heavily targeted in the passing game, his modest yardage and touchdown numbers dictate his value lies almost exclusively in point-per-reception formats.
New England Patriots running back James White caught nine passes for 46 yards in the Patriots 35-14 win over the Giants. White almost scored but his elbow hit the ground feet away from the football crossing the goal line. Otherwise it was an active effort from the veteran, who caught all nine of his targets. White has zero value carrying the ball but now has 23 receptions over his last three games. He will have FLEX appeal next week in PPR leagues against the Jets.
New England Patriots running back James White will go up against a Giants Defense on Thursday night that has allowed the 17th fewest points to opposing running backs this season. But the Giants have allowed 142 combined receiving yards to running backs in the past two games and White has 14 receptions during that span. The level of production has been a far cry from last season's output but White still has a role in an above average offense. White's value will be strictly reserved to PPR formats for Week 6.
New England Patriots running back James White caught six passes for 46 yards and added 26 rushing yards in the teams 33-7 win over the Redskins. White has only one touchdown on the season but will enter Week 6 with 241 all-purpose yards on the season. White has plenty of time to post better production in a powerful offense but it is already clear that his opportunities in the red zone have dipped after scoring 12 total touchdowns last season.
New England Patriots RB James White rushed six times for 26 yards in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins while adding six catches for 46 yards on nine targets.
Fantasy Spin: White has to contend with Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead for touches in the backfield, so his fantasy ceiling is capped. But he remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy play in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams, with lesser value in other formats. The Patriots face the Giants on Thursday night in a short week.
New England Patriots running back James White has struggled to get his season going through the first four weeks of the season. White has 16 receptions for 132 yards but is barely used in the running game. He could see some early work in Week 5 against the Redskins but the Patriots could lean on Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead in the second half if they build a huge lead. This would leave the veteran White the odd-man out to produce in fantasy for Week 5. White has been a disappointment thus far compared to last year's production and lacks fantasy appeal in most formats for Week 5.
New England Patriots RB James White posted team highs with eight catches, 57 yards and 10 targets in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Spin: White had an OK day for fantasy owners in PPR leagues on a day most New England players did nothing for fantasy owners. The Pats will look to get back on track in Week 5 at Washington.
New England Patriots running back James White caught eight of 10 targets for 57 yards in a win over the Bills Sunday. White added one carry for one yard as his primary role continues to be catching the ball out of the backfield. White's 10 targets were the most on the team as quarterback Tom Brady was looking to get the ball out quickly against a strong Buffalo pass rush. White's role in the passing game gives him a high-floor in fantasy, especially in PPR formats, but he is clearly behind Sony Michel for running down work. He will be a startable option in most leagues with a plus-matchup at Washington next week.
New England Patriots running back James White could emerge as an integral offensive threat this Sunday against the Bills. After a career season, it has been a quiet start for the veteran runner. But with Rex Burkhead nursing a foot injury, Sony Michel's ineffectiveness and facing a talented Bills Defense could turn things in White's favor for Week 4. The Bills have surrendered two receiving touchdowns to running backs this season and will be keying in on stopping quarterback Tom Brady and the passing game. But this is the perfect scenario for Brady to look White's way on roll-outs and checkdown's to move the chains. Even if Burkhead is limited in the game, White could post his best fantasy stat-line of the season in Week 4.
Patriots running back James White has been ruled out for the Week 3 game against the Jets because his wife is expected to give birth, according to multiple sources.
New England Patriots RB James White has been ruled out for Week 3's game against the New York Jets because his wife is expected to give birth, according to multiple sources.
Fantasy Spin: Sony Michel is expected to receive the bulk of the carries in the New England backfield this week, with Rex Burkhead and possibly Damien Harris seeing additional offensive snaps due to White's absence. Only Michel is worthy of consideration as a starting option in fantasy leagues.
New England Patriots running back James White (personal) won't play in Week 3 when the Patriots meet the Jets as he awaits the birth of his child. With White out, expect a healthy dose of Sony Michel on early downs and Rex Burkhead on passing downs. Michel in particular should see a ton of work in this game, as the Patriots project to go up big early and run the ball plenty in the second half. Burkhead gets a boost and looks like a high upside starting option in deeper leagues now.
New England Patriots running back James White is off to a slow start through the first two games of the season. With so many weapons on offense, there are a lot of mouths to feed for quarterback Tom Brady. White has seen only seven carries through the first two weeks and has eight catches for 75 yards. The veteran will face a Jets Defense that has allowed 12 receptions to running backs but the Patriots game plan could lean towards relying on the running game. White is better suited in the passing game and his production could continue to suffer.
New England Patriots running back James White totaled only 29 yards from scrimmage but caught a late touchdown in the team's 43-0 win over the Dolphins in Week 2. The running game revolved around Sony Michel in this contest and White was a non-factor most of the game. The Patriots have improved wide receiving talent across the board this season which should concern fantasy owners in terms of White's role moving forward in the passing game.
New England Patriots running back James White will go up against a Dolphins Defense that allowed a combined 34.9 fantasy points to Ravens running backs in Week 1. White posted a solid effort to start the season, catching five passes for 56 yards and adding 26 rushing yards. White's results against the Dolphins last season were mixed, racking up 112 yards from scrimmage with two touchdowns in Week 4 but was bottled up for only 27 total yards in Week 14. White certainly will have value in PPR-leagues but his numbers could be depressed if the team gets out to a huge lead early.
Updating a previous report, New England Patriots running back James White is making the trip to Miami and is expected to play in Week 2 against the Dolphins. There was speculation earlier that White would be missing the game with his wife expecting a child. New England's matchup with the Dolphins Defense this Sunday really doesn't get much better, so White needs to be in all fantasy lineups and has RB2 upside in what should be another Patriots blowout in Week 2. As always, White is more attractive in PPR leagues.
New England Patriots RB James White made the trip Saturday, Sept. 14, to Miami for the team's Week 2 game against the Dolphins. There was some speculation that White may miss the game with his wife expecting.
Fantasy Spin: White totaled 82 yards, including 56 on five receptions, in the Patriots' opening win over the Steelers and is a flex consideration this week against the Dolphins.
