Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs CIN (8 / 5 / 42 / 0 rec)

White earned some key receptions to extend the few successful drives that Atlanta had against the Bengals. He caught a quick hitch for seven yards on a leaping catch to begin the game; a short gain up the right sideline during the two-minute warning; and a 19-yard gain late in the third quarter on a deep slant of a three-step drop and throw. The final play mentioned in this series of examples is the kind of downfield throw where Ryan and White have the best chance to succeed if the offensive line continues to falter.

2014 Week 4 vs MIN (14 / 4 / 73 / 1 rec)

White scored on a blown coverage where he was left alone in the right seam for a 24-yard catch and run in the first half. After that, White's output was a mixed bag. Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes had a nice game and one of his fine plays included a pass defense where he cut off a hitch to the veteran. Later, White go open on a 3rd and 7 corner route, but the pass placement was a little wide and White dropped the ball after full extension to the target. Ryan led White too far on a quick throw-out in the early second quarter and White then dropped a second straight pass in on a hitch thrown in tight coverage. White's fourth drop of the game came with 1:40 left in the half on a 2nd and 4 crossing route in tight coverage. The receiver's hamstring appears to be an issue for him on deeper routes, too. White was open up the seam, but laboring to maintain position and overthrown with two minutes in the third quarter. He finished the afternoon with a leaping comeback for a first down in the mid-fourth. As long as White hasn't experienced any setbacks with his hamstring, consider this a bad day that still had a decent fantasy outcome.


Latest News

Falcons | Roddy White expecting shootouts (Mon Sep 29, 08:55 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said he expects the team to be involved in high-scoring shootouts all year, and head coach Mike Smith agreed to an extent. 'I donít like to think in terms of shootouts,' Smith said. 'But I definitely think we've got to score more than the other guy. We have to do whatever it takes.'

Our View: We're expecting shootouts too. The Falcons defense is not that good, so the offense will have to shoulder the load. This means a lot of Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Roddy White...with a dash of Devin Hester.

Falcons | Roddy White probable (Fri Sep 26, 01:44 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is probable for Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, and he will play.

Our View: The "probable" tag should remove any hesitation to put White back in your lineup this week.

Falcons | Roddy White will start (Fri Sep 26, 09:36 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) will start the Week 4 game Sunday, Sept. 28, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Our View: White has had extended rest and should be a safe play against the Vikings on Sunday. If he suffers a re-injury or otherwise looks slowed down, we'll have to increase the intensity of the "Roddy White impending decline watch".

Falcons | Roddy White does some work (Thu Sep 25, 03:12 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.

Our View: White is a borderline WR3/flex, and the hamstring is a concern. Minnesota isn't great defensively--plus Matt Ryan is on fire lately, so White continues to have value despite being banged up.

Falcons | Roddy White expects to play (Thu Sep 25, 11:38 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) said he believes he is ready to play in the team's Week 4 game.

Our View: White's a little banged up but should be effective this weekend. He's far past the time of his career where he is a huge fantasy earner but should put enough yards together to work as a solid WR3.
