2019 Outlook: James White

James White had a career season in 2018, and he will try to replicate that performance this year. He's worth drafting as a No. 2 running back in PPR in Round 4 and a flex option in non-PPR leagues in Round 5. Last season, White had career highs in carries (94), rushing yards (425), rushing touchdowns (five), targets (123), receptions (87), receiving yards (751) and receiving touchdowns (seven). He ranked third in receptions, second in receiving yards and tied for the most touchdowns among running backs, and he was the No. 7 running back in PPR. It could be hard for him to repeat that performance, and the Patriots added another running back to the roster with rookie Damien Harris joining Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead. Rookie N'Keal Harry was also added to the receiving corps, but New England did lose Rob Gronkowski as well. Tom Brady should continue to lean on White as a security blanket, and White has proven himself as one of the top pass-catching running backs in the NFL.
