WR Blair White - Indianapolis Colts
|6-2, 209||Born: 2-20-1987||College: Michigan State||Drafted: ---|
2011 Week 7 vs NO (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
White only touched the ball in special teams as a punt returner.
2010 Week 3 vs DEN (6 / 3 / 27 / 1 rec)
The undrafted rookie got a lot of action with Pierre Garcon out, and made the most of it, scoring his first NFL TD on a nice in and out move on Perrish Cox, who would like to forget this day very soon. White got his hands on a second ball in the end zone, but the pass was broken up. If more injuries strike the Colts WR corps, White seems like he could be competent enough to have fantasy value with Peyton Manning as his QB.
2010 Week 4 vs JAX (4 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
All of his targets came in the 2nd half of the football game. He was the 5th option after Wayne, Clark, Collie, and Addai. He has a long way to go but on a team like Indy he is going to have more opportunities than he would on another team that doesn't pass as much. The Colts need to get Garcon back who will add another element to their passing game that White simply doesn't have right now.
2010 Week 6 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
White came in and made a single catch along the sideline during the 2nd quarter. He was not heard from again.
2010 Week 9 vs PHI (5 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Blair White entered Week 9 as the fourth wide receiver for the Colts but was forced into action once Austin Collie suffered a concussion in the second quarter. White worked mostly from the slot and was able to get free for a 33-yard reception down the middle of the field on the first play after Collie's injury, but that was the high point of White's production as his final two catches amassed only nine yards. White will likely be the slot receiver / WR3 for Indianapolis until Austin Collie returns.
2010 Week 11 vs NE (7 / 5 / 42 / 2 rec)
Blair White put on his Austin Collie mask as soon as Collie went down with an injury, and just like he has all season, White produced when called upon. White is a tremendous athlete with a lot of quickness and great body control, as he showed on his second touchdown catch, a diving effort at the back of the end zone as he beat S Pat Chung fairly easily. White is a player who Manning trusts in the clutch and he has a good grasp of this offense despite only being a rookie. The future is bright for White.
2010 Week 12 vs SD (6 / 4 / 34 / 1 rec)
White wasn't a huge factor in the passing game, but he was the fortunate recipient of a red zone look on a quick out route. Manning tossed him a quick pass out in the flat, which White easily took into the end zone.
2010 Week 14 vs TEN (8 / 7 / 52 / 0 rec)
White caught short passes underneath for the Colts all day, and gladly went over the middle in this offense to move the chains for his team. He caught a lot of screen passes or option routes, ensuring he was very likely to touch the ball in this offense. He played almost exclusively from the slot and Manning looked his way often. His only mistake came on an accidental pass break up on a pass intended for Wayne, which White incorrectly thought was intended for him. White is small and lacks true speed to play outside, but has the hands and quickness that is perfect for the slot receiver in this Colts offense.
2010 Week 16 vs OAK (5 / 2 / 20 / 1 rec)
White is definitely not performing at the level of Austin Collie, but he's still doing a very good job. On his TD, he stretched his arms out wide, caught the ball, and then ran to the corner of the endzone, diving to get a big TD. He also just a few plays before, had his man beat, but got interfered with, and drew a long PI penalty on a deep ball from Manning.
2010 Week 17 vs TEN (7 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec)
White isn't going to garner a lot of attention from defenders, but he is sure-handed and Peyton trusts him. All Colts receivers have to be masters of the short passing game, and White is a first down machine. However, someone has to get open deep down the field for the Colts to have a chance in the playoffs, and it doesn't appear that White has that kind of ability.
2010 Week 18 vs NYJ (8 / 6 / 54 / 0 rec)
White had an ok day, reeling in a lot of catches, but was often held to very short yardage on them. He had one play, a very nice reception for 23 yards in the third quarter where he was able to slip by the coverage and catch the ball. But for the most part, White was quiet, often catching the ball near the line of scrimmage or just past it.
