Outlook

With both Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley in contract years, it made sense for the Patriots to grab a back for the future. James White is a patient runner with decent speed and clear football smarts. He can pass-protect as well, and rarely fumbles the ball. This year you probably won't see much of him, barring injury to Vereen or Ridley, but he's worth a later pick just in case and will have value in 2015, when he might carry the load.


Latest News

Patriots | James White catches six passes (Sun Nov 22, 05:54 PM) - New England Patriots RB James White caught six passes for 64 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 11. He also rushed for 19 yards on five carries during the game.

Our View: White should be a hot waiver wire pickup in PPR leagues this week after Rex Burkhead went down, presumably for the remainder of the season. He should be a safe PPR RB2 as the primary passcatcher out of the backfield for a team with very little at wide receiver.
