    Patriots' James White: Sees 47 snaps Sunday

    White was on the field for 47 of the Patriots' 83 offensive snaps in Sunday's 20-18 loss to the Broncos in the AFC title game, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, White carried the ball five times for 11 yards, while catching five passes for 45 yards in the contest. Following the season-ending injury to Dion Lewis, White emerged as the Patriots' primary pass-catching back, en route hauling in 40 passes for 410 yard and four TDs, to go along with 22 carries for 56 yards and two rushing TDs in 14 games. With Lewis on track to return from his torn ACL, White's role with the Patriots in 2016 has yet to be clarified, especially given that LeGarrette Blount is slated to become a free agent and the team is likely to make some personnel changes at the running back position this offseason.

    Patriots' James White: Catches two passes in Saturday's win

    White was on the field for 42 of the Patriots' 59 offensive snaps in Saturday's 27-20 playoff win over the Chiefs, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. With the Patriots' going with a pass-first approach in the contest, White topped the team's backfield in snaps, though he only ended up with one carry for five yards and two catches (on three targets) for 39 yards in the process. Meanwhile, the team's top power back, Steven Jackson, saw 17 snaps, carrying six times for 16 yards. While White's carries figure to be limited again next weekend, there's a solid chance that he'll see more targets in the team's passing offense next Sunday against either the Steelers or Broncos.

    Patriots' James White: Sees 23 snaps on Sunday

    White was on the field for 23 of the Patriots' 60 snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. White carried three times for five yards in the game, while catching two passes for 63 yards, including a 68-yard catch-and-run. Meanwhile, Steven Jackson was on the field for 24 snaps, while Brandon Bolden was out there for 17, while also seeing special teams work. Heading into the playoffs, we'd expect Jackson to see a good chunk of the team's early-down work, while White is on track to remain the team's primary pass-catching back in a Patriots offense that figures to be more aggressive in terms of throwing the ball once the team resumes action following a first-round bye.

    Patriots' James White: Catches five passes Sunday

    White was on the field for 22 of the Patriots' 56 snaps on offense in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Jets, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, White ran twice for four yards and caught five passes on five targets for 28 yards and a TD. White's role as the Patriots' top pass-catching back figures to remain stable in the coming weeks, with his production and in turn, fantasy utility, game plan and game flow dependent. Meanwhile, "big backs" Brandon Bolden and Steven Jackson are on hand to handle the bulk of the team's early-down work, which ensures that White is of more interest in PPR leagues than standard scoring formats.

    Patriots' James White: Scores TD in win

    White caught seven of eight targets for 71 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's win over the Titans. He also rushed once for six yards. The Patriots split the backfield snaps fairly evenly between White (23), Brandon Bolden (29) and Joey Iosefa (19), according to ESPN.com, with the latter actually leading the team in rushing with 51 yards on 14 carries. White continues to be the clear passing-down back, and he could be heavily used in Week 16 against the Jets, who are allowing the fewest rushing yards per game and have allowed the fewest rushing touchdowns this season.

    Patriots' James White: Scores second rushing touchdown of season

    White scored a two-yard touchdown on his only carry and caught four passes for 38 yards (on six targets) in Sunday's 27-6 win over the Texans. With LeGarrette Blount (hip) exiting in the second quarter, Brandon Bolden took over as the power back, finishing with 16 carries for 51 yards. White's role didn't change, but he did score his fourth touchdown (second rushing) of the season on a third-down play in a three-wide formation. Although he still doesn't figure to get too many carries, White could see some extra targets if Blount misses time, as the Patriots would be less likely to utilize their power offense in the first half of games. The team might also use Bolden less often on passing downs if he's busy on the ground.

    Patriots' James White: Career game in loss

    White caught a career-high 10 passes on 13 targets for 115 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 35-28 loss to the Eagles. The Patriots were down by 21 points in the fourth quarter, so White was able to rack up the receptions, although he was involved throughout (his touchdown catch came in the first half). A week after being outproduced by Brandon Bolden, White was the dominant player out of the backfield, as Bolden caught just one of five targets for two yards. Next week, White will take on an improved Texans's defense.

    Patriots' James White: Struggles in loss

    White caught two passes for five yards on five targets, adding one yard on three carries, in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Broncos. White was badly outplayed by Brandon Bolden, who caught all four of his targets for 84 yards and a touchdown, adding another 11 yards on four carries. White still had a comfortable advantage over Bolden in snaps, leading 31 to 15, with LeGarrette Blount handling 27, according to Pro Football Focus. Bolden may have earned himself a bit more work, but White still figures to have a sizable role in Week 13 against the Eagles.

    Patriots' James White: Just two touches Sunday

    White caught his lone target for six yards and had just one carry for five yards in Sunday's 27-26 win over the Giants. It's a little surprising that White had just one target in game in which Tom Brady attempted 42 passes. White will probably have some decent games along the way, with Dion Lewis (ACL) no longer in the picture, but Sunday's usage is not encouraging. On the bright side, Brandon Bolden did not carry the ball and failed to catch his lone target. If you need to use White next week, he and the Patriots will play the Bills at home.

    Patriots' James White: Expected to help fill in for Lewis

    In the wake of Dion Lewis' season-ending knee injury, White is viewed by ESPN's Mike Reiss as "the top candidate" to see his role in the Patriots' offense expand. Specifically, look for White -- who was a healthy scratch in Week 9 -- to absorb a large chunk of "passing back" role in the Patriots' offense that Lewis had handled so adeptly. It's a role he filled in Week 7 when Lewis was last sidelined. Meanwhile, LeGarrette Blount will continue to handle the heavy lifting in the Patriots' backfield, with the versatile Brandon Bolden also on hand to serve in a complementary role in the offense, in addition to serving as a key special-teamer.
