Summary

Roddy White is the Falcons' #2 wideout despite entering the 2015 season at 34 years of age. He rebounded somewhat from an injury-plagued 2013 season to post 125 targets for 80/921/7 receiving during 2014 - but it was the second season in which he's averaged less than 12 yards per reception, and the second straight year he finished with less than 1,000 yards receiving. White is entering the twilight of his NFL career, and the new coaching staff includes offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who brought over Leonard Hankerson from Washington with him to Atlanta. We'll see if White endures a challenge for the #2 wide receiver role during training camp. (May 14)

Falcons | Roddy White ruled out (Thu Aug 27, 04:23 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (elbow) will not play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Our View: No sense in risking White—one of the only solid receivers not named Julio Jones on the team—when you know what you have in him. We see White, when healthy, as a decent WR3 or solid WR4.

Falcons | Roddy White to have elbow surgery (Sun Aug 23, 07:23 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (elbow) will undergo a minor surgical procedure on his right elbow but is expected to be ready for the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Our View: Luckily, White has given us guidance on how to use him in fantasy lineups. If he doesn't practice before the Week 1 game, we shouldn't trust him in our lineups, despite the good matchup against Philadelphia. Preseason sensation Leonard Hankerson would likely get the call if White can't go.

Falcons | Roddy White ruled out (Fri Aug 21, 07:33 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (shoulder) will not play in the second preseason game Friday, Aug. 21, because of a shoulder injury. White's injury is not consider serious.

Our View: We already know White had his knee drained in the offseason and may have to have the procedure again during the season. This injury isn't serious, but it is a reminder that his body isn't holding up the way it used to. Luckily, White has told us the "Roddy Rule" - don't play him in your fantasy league if he hasn't practiced. Hopefully we don't need to enact that rule too often this year.
