From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 9): White had a decent PPR night against Pittsburgh, but there will be a big mouth to feed arriving next week in New England when Antonio Brown suits up. White is just a flex play despite the overall upgrade to his offense.

General News (Sat Sep 14): 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. Instead, looks like White is going to be there for the game.

Week 2: at Miami Dolphins

All RB vs MIA

FBG says: Great matchup. As great as the Patriots were through the air against the Steelers, they struggled on the ground. Sony Michel had a hard time getting going as he had just 15 yards on 14 carries and there was seemingly little room for the second-year running back to get going. Backup running back, Rex Burkhead was the sole bright spot for the Patriots rushing attack this week as he was able to rush for 44 yards on just 8 carries albeit most of which was when the game was out of hand. Along the offensive line, the Patriots are a bit of a mess, the team is missing center David Andrews who was placed on IR with blood clots, and right tackle Marcus Cannon left the game with a shoulder injury that is expected to keep him out for a while. offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia likely has his hands full with this unit, but he is the best in the business and it remains to be seen how the team will replace Cannon as last week they moved left guard Joe Thuney to right tackle and Jermaine Eluemunor moved to left guard who had been with the team for just 11 days. The other option would be to keep Thuney at guard and start Korey Cunningham who was inactive last week as he did start six games last season with the Cardinals. Either way, it's not a great situation in New England along the offensive line. Miami's defense looks like it has given up before the season has even started. The Ravens essentially did whatever they wanted last week and the Dolphins had no resistance to the Ravens attack. Baltimore ran the ball 46 times for 265 yards in the blowout win last week, and the linebacker concerns that we had before the season rang true as Jerome Baker, Raekwon McMillan, and Sam Eguavoen all struggled. The team's highest-paid player, Reshad Jones appears to have fallen out of favor in Miami as he played just 44% of the team's snaps and was taken out on several key plays in this game. Along the defensive line, Christian Wilkins was the lone bright spot as he anchored the defensive line and showing his quickness off the ball which is why the Dolphins selected him in the first round. Brian Flores has a significant challenge heading into this game facing his former team in the Patriots that are looking to establish the offensive line and their running game after struggling in Week 1.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs PIT (4 / 26 / 0 rush, 7 / 5 / 56 / 0 rec)

White operated in his usual role, though he did split snaps with Rex Burkhead, which may limit his upside going forward. He still got 7 of Tom Brady's 36 targets, and 1 of Julian Edelman's on a trick play to boot. There was nothing significant of note beyond the usage numbers, something to monitor no doubt.
