Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 5 vs WAS (4 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

White's first target came with 12:03 in the third quarter despite seeing the field throughout the first half. The first target was an out route and the cornerback Breeland earned a good break to defend from trail position, which he did on multiple receivers in this game. White drew a pass interference on a bad throw by Ryan in the early fourth to earn Atlanta a first down, which led to the Falcons running the ball. White's first catch was a backside slant to reach the Washington 15 with 10:44 left where he was wide open. The most meaningful catch was a fourth-down slant for eight yards after a touchdown reception to Devonta Freeman was reversed the play before. This set up a Freeman touchdown run late in the game. However, the worst play for Atlanta also involved White: Matt Ryan bird-dogged the receiver on a deep drag route with Breeland once again trailing and undercutting the ball. White is slower than he once was, but this was a poor throw from Ryan and with 6:00 left, Washington was able to send this play into overtime. White is a middle-of-the-field, check-down or red zone matchup threat against certain safeties or linebackers, but he's no longer a massive factor in the passing game on a weekly basis.

2015 Week 4 vs HOU (4 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

White's targets included a short out of four yards on 3rd and 5 during the second series and a seam route of 14 to get Atlanta to mid-field, but the officials nullified due to White pushing off the slot defender. Other than another four-yard gain on 2nd and 9 during the mid-second quarter, White was a non-factor.

2015 Week 3 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Ryan underthrew a third and goal drag route to White in the end zone, but Dallas corner Mo Claiborne was called for holding Julio Jones on the play and gave Atlanta a second life. Ryan later hit White on crossing route on a designed play action roll for first down, but an illegal man downfield nullified the play. This was the extent of White's work. Beyond Jones and Freeman, there was little variety to the personnel used more than once in the passing offense.

2015 Week 1 vs PHI (8 / 4 / 84 / 0 rec)

White looks healthy, but a step slower than what he was at the peak of his career. No longer are the Falcons targeting him routinely on timing routes requiring hard cuts against the top corner on the defense. White's gains came on crossing routes and pivots off play action, including a 25-yard gain where the receiver looked slow as a runner--allowing the safety to get into the play and catch the receiver on the sideline. White then gained 17 on a play-action throwback. He was open on a pivot route in the end zone until Kiko Alonso made a fantastic drop into the middle zone and snared the touchdown-saving interception with one hand. As long as White can stay this healthy, he'll offer the Falcons strong production as the product of play-action passes underneath White's zone-stretching routes down field.

Falcons | Roddy White quiet again in Week 5 (Sun Oct 11, 11:06 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White posted just two receptions for 23 yards in the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins. He was targeted four times.

Falcons | Roddy White not available (Sun Oct 11, 11:02 AM) - Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White is not available in a trade and is considered an important part of the offense, according to a high-ranking team official.

Falcons | Roddy White on trade block? (Sun Oct 11, 10:19 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White is receiving interest from at least three teams looking to acquire him before the trade deadline. The team may consider moving him if WR Leonard Hankerson makes more plays in the upcoming weeks. It may be hard for the team to trade White since he is scheduled to make $5 million this season and they are not expected to take on any of that money.

Our View: Julio Jones hamstring issues would make this a very risky move for the 4-0 Falcons. Expect White to stay put and possibly even have a larger role going forward.

Falcons | Roddy White should be in uniform (Fri Oct 9, 05:47 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins.

Our View: White had an up-and-down week. It started with F-bombs and unhappiness with his lack of targets. Then, rumors swirled about White being open to a trade. Yesterday, things calmed down as White said he's comfortable with his role on offense. We'll see if the Falcons make an effort to get White more involved against Washington on Sunday.

Falcons | Roddy White encouraged about his role (Thu Oct 8, 10:16 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White met with head coach Dan Quinn Thursday, Oct. 8, and said he is encouraged about his role and is taking a positive attitude into the Week 5 matchup against the Washington Redskins.

Our View: White could have a bounceback "narrative" driven game to get him back involved, but he's only end of the bench depth, if that, now that Leonard Hankerson has emerged.
