Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs KC (6 / 39 / 0 rush, 7 / 5 / 53 / 0 rec)
Though he was definitely part of the game plan, for once, James White didn't lead the Pats in targets or receiving yards, which is probably a good thing. White actually saw good gains on his handful of runs, and did well with his 7 targets, converting 5 of them. There were no notable plays to speak of, but he continues to produce at a high level.
2018 Week 5 vs IND (2 / 0 / 0 rush, 14 / 10 / 77 / 1 rec)
Once again, James White was the best Pats weapon, moving chains and scoring points along the way. He led the Pats in receptions, scored a touchdown on a post route from the backfield, and nearly had a much bigger day had Tom Brady not overthrown him on a deep ball. White will continue to be an important feature in the Pats passing game even with the return of Julian Edelman, though it's clear Sony Michel has the ground game locked up.
2018 Week 4 vs MIA (8 / 44 / 1 rush, 10 / 8 / 68 / 1 rec)
Once again, guess who led the Pats in receiving? Though Sony Michel saw a bulk of the work on the ground, White had success in both phases against the Dolphins, scoring touchdowns on both the ground and in the air. His rushing touchdown was a pinball touchdown from 22 yards out, while his receiving touchdown was a deep float from Tom Brady where White managed to slip between defenders. White consistently beat defenders in both phases of the game, and will continue to be an integral part of the team, though his passing game share will lessen with Josh Gordon and Julian Edelman at full speed.
2018 Week 3 vs DET (4 / 37 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 14 / 1 rec)
White could have had a bigger day, but the Pats were dominated in possession time and forced the run game. In fact, most of White's carries were in garbage time on the last drive of the game. His touchdown was a great contested catch with a great throw from Tom Brady, one of the few bright spots on the day.
2018 Week 2 vs JAX (4 / 11 / 0 rush, 8 / 7 / 73 / 0 rec)
As suspected, James White was utilized heavily in the passing game, catching more receptions and seeing more targets than any other players. Most of his catches and targets were about 6 to 8 yards downfield, and most of his touches weren't manufactured. Rather, they were out of necessity as Tom Brady scrambled for his life on several plays. Against worse run defenses, White won't see this kind of volume, but against good defenses where we expect the Pats to throw a lot, White will remain involved.
2018 Week 1 vs HOU (5 / 18 / 0 rush, 9 / 4 / 38 / 1 rec)
James White was used as a receiver more often than as a runner despite Jeremy Hill's injury, which wasn't a surprise. His biggest play of note was a wide open touchdown catch out of the backfield. He was used in a variety of formations, and did start at the running back position and flexed out wide multiple times. White will continue to be used in a bit fashion mostly in the receiving game, especially with Julian Edelman out.
