Week 1 vs. MIN
Receiving: 4 / 29 / 0 on 5 targets
White was Joey Harrington's most frequently targeted wide receiver. White was the target on a second down for a five yard gain just short of a first down. On the very next play, Harrington was flushed out of the pocket and found White for a nine yard play. In the second quarter, he made a short catch near the sideline, was hit by Chad Greenway, and fumbled the ball out of bounds. In the third quarter, Roddy White was the target of a rare Harrington deep ball, but again Harrington was unable to get him the ball. White's last target was a short comeback route for seven yards. White also had a false start penalty.
Week 2 vs. JAX
Receiving: 4 / 81 / 0 on 6 targets
White seemed to have a good rapport with Harrington, and turned several intermediate timing routes into good gains after the catch. He displayed good route-running ability and good speed, including one deep pass where his defender was called for pass interference, preventing him from catching the ball. White was also overthrown on two other passes.
Week 3 vs. CAR
Receiving: 7 / 127 / 1 on 9 targets
White had a career day, catching seven passes for 127 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown came on a short pass to the left. White broke a tackle at the 50 yard line and raced the rest of the way for the touchdown. Of his seven passes, White picked up four first downs. White received just one red zone target but the pass was incomplete.
Week 4 vs. HOU
Receiving: 3 / 64 / 0 on 6 targets
White was used in a variety of ways, running short slants as well as longer routes. He ran well after the catch, and was targeted in the red zone, with his defender making a good play to deflect the ball at the last minute. White also had a red zone reception that he took inside the five yard line called back due to an offensive penalty.
Week 5 vs. TEN
Rushing: 1 / -2 / 0
Receiving: 3 / 55 / 0 on 7 targets
White led the team in targets, but wasn't able to do much with his attempts. White was targeted on a slant pattern in the red zone in which he took his eye off the ball and pulled up to avoid a big hit from the safety. White was the intended target on Byron Leftwich's interception.
Week 6 vs. NYG
Receiving: 4 / 64 / 0 on 5 targets
White came into this game as the Falcons' leading receiver and got off to a good start catching passes for nine and ten yards, both for first downs, on the first couple plays of the game. He did drop a ball he should have had on that initial drive as Atlanta neared the red zone. White finished the half as the Falcons leading receiver, catching three balls for 26 yards.
White made a big play early in the second half to jump start a stagnant Falcon's offense momentarily. He ran a crossing route in man to man coverage and broke free for a 38 yard completion. But that would be White's last catch of the game as the Giants did a good job of shutting him down in the second half.
Week 7 vs. NO
Receiving: 8 / 110 / 1 on 8 targets
White caught every pass intended for him, and nearly caught a second touchdown, just barely stepping on the sideline on what would have been a 39 yard touchdown from Joey Harrington late in the game. White's touchdown came on a nine yard slant route over the middle where Byron Leftwich threw a sharp pass into a tight spot.
Week 9 vs. SF
Receiving: 3 / 55 / 0 on 8 targets
White kept on getting the ball thrown to him. But Harrington saw him and kind of chucked it somewhat in his direction on most attempts. The announcers of the game kept on talking about how explosive he could be, but neglected to add to it that he has to have the ball first. All three of his catches were for first downs, and he looked particularly good on a third and long catch over the middle, in which he had to fight for the extra yard, but got the first down.
Week 10 vs. CAR
Receiving: 6 / 57 / 0 on 11 targets
White caught six passes for 57 yards. He had a career high 11 targets in the game. White picked up three first downs but did not see any red zone opportunities.
Week 11 vs. TB
Receiving: 4 / 28 / 0 on 7 targets
White was targeted eight times, finishing with four receptions for 28 yards. White, who has struggled with drops all year long, continued to have problems and had at least two more balls thrown his way that he should have come down with. He also fumbled the ball away on one of his receptions, but after an unusual sequence of events, the Falcons were able to get the ball back from the Buccaneers after a fumble of their own on the run back.
Week 12 vs. IND
Receiving: 6 / 104 / 1 on 10 targets
White was targeted early and often by Joey Harrington. He caught a 48 yard touchdown pass from Harrington on the second Atlanta drive of the night as he beat the safety on the outside. White had 104 yards on the day, while the next highest receiving yard total for the Falcons was 14 yards by Alge Crumpler.
Week 13 vs. STL
Receiving: 10 / 146 / 1 on 18 targets
White had an extraordinary amount of looks from both quarterbacks. He fumbled the ball early in the game, but made up for it later by scoring on a catch from Redman in the fourth. Most of his catches were in the 15-20 yard range.
Week 14 vs. NO
Receiving: 3 / 75 / 1 on 7 targets
White had a solid night. He caught a touchdown and three passes for 75 yards. One of the passes he caught went to the one yard line as time expired in the first half. He was hit hard on slants when Redman led him right into defenders.
Week 15 vs. TB
Receiving: 1 / 4 / 0 on 4 targets
White got four looks from his quarterback, but managed just one reception for four yards.
Week 16 vs. ARI
Receiving: 12 / 141 / 0 on 17 targets
White was the team's leading receiver hauling in 12 catches for 141 yards, but with no scores. His longest catch was for 26 yards.
Week 17 vs. SEA
Receiving: 5 / 62 / 1 on 9 targets
White remains a low percentage (five receptions for nine targets) go to receiver, but when he does catch the ball he makes things happen.
