Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 6 vs NYJ (3 / 23 / 0 rush, 7 / 4 / 22 / 0 rec)

By now, you know the story for James White - limited carries, and a few short backfield catches. There was not much to write home about with his 7 touches, though he did have healthy gains on all 3 of his carries.

2017 Week 5 vs TB (2 / 3 / 0 rush, 9 / 7 / 57 / 0 rec)

Surprise surprise - James White was often Tom Brady's safety outlet, being used in the passing game more than anything else. He did have a nice 20+ yarder, but other than that, his big play upside remains limited due to the nature of the route he primarily runs. In fact, White does run some of the shorter routes Julian Edelman used to run.

2017 Week 4 vs CAR (1 / 7 / 0 rush, 12 / 10 / 47 / 0 rec)

White was heavily involved as a receiver, but was not able to do much, as the Panthers covered him well. He was a last gasp outlet for Tom Brady on several passes, as Brady was constantly under pressure throughout the day. White will remain involved in the offense if shootouts continue to occur due to poor defense.

2017 Week 3 vs HOU (5 / 17 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Surprisingly, even though the Patriots were pass heavy, James White was fairly limited on the day. The biggest part of this was the Patriots playing a medium to deep passing game, as well as a combo of Cooks, Gronk and Hogan firing on all cylinders. The running game also got nothing on the ground, but White usually isn't a big factor in that area.

2017 Week 2 vs NO (2 / 11 / 0 rush, 8 / 8 / 85 / 0 rec)

As expected, in this high scoring affair, White was mostly involved in the passing game, catching 8 passes and being Brady's preferred target, particularly when Brady was under pressure. Should the Patriots receiving corps continue to be a skeleton crew, White remains a likely volume target in the passing game.

2017 Week 1 vs KC (10 / 38 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)

Despite having running back competition, White operated as the clear third down and hurry up back, even splitting wide at times. White also ran the ball 10 times, which indicates he'll be involved in the offense going forward. One of his blemishes was a route which wasn't run with proper depth, allowing Kansas City to tackle him just before the first down marker. With injuries to Edelman and Danny Amendola, White may be relied upon even more for third downs, which is critical for his forward outlook.
