Player Outlook

Depending on your format, James White was either a solid Fantasy contributor or a total dud in 2017, and you should expect a similar outcome this year. In non-PPR leagues, White didn't do much to help your team since he had no games with double digits in Fantasy points and never topped 40 rushing yards in any game. But in PPR, White was much better, and his 56 receptions were No. 10 among running backs. He could see a slight boost in production with Dion Lewis gone as a free agent to Tennessee, but we doubt White makes a dramatic leap in Fantasy value in non-PPR formats. He also has to contend with sharing touches still with Rex Burkhead, rookie Sony Michel and likely one of Jeremy Hill and Mike Gillislee. White is only worth a late-round flier in non-PPR leagues, even with Michel dealing with a knee injury in early August, but he's worth a mid-round pick in PPR. He has 116 catches for 980 yards and eight touchdowns on 158 targets the past two seasons, so he's proven that he can catch the ball at a high level, which makes him valuable in those formats. And he also could benefit early in the year with Julian Edelman (suspension) out for the first four games.

  • Patriots' James White: Could lose targets to Michel
    By RotoWire Staff

    First-round draft choice Sony Michel is slated to join White, Jeremy Hill, Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee in the Patriots' 2018 backfield. White, who carried 43 times for 171 yards to go with 56 catches for 429 yards and three TDs in 14 games last season, remains a roster lock thanks to his pass-catching prowess. That said, the dynamic Michel draws comparisons to the Saints' Alvin Kamara, and the rookie is thus a threat to cut into White's target volume (and in turn PPR value) in 2018.

  • Patriots' James White: Active Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    White (ankle) is active for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Titans. Unlike fellow running backs Rex Burkhead (knee) and Mike Gillislee (knee), White has brushed off an ankle injury and will be available to the offense in the Patriots' playoff opener. White is thus the best bet to spell Dion Lewis on occasion, especially on obvious passing downs.

  • Patriots' James White: Expected to play Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    White (ankle) is expected to play in Saturday's playoff tilt against the Titans, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports. White has not suited up since Week 15 due to an ankle injury, so he has now had three full weeks to recover. At the time of his injury White only had a bit role with the offense, but with Rex Burkhead (knee) and Mike Gillislee (knee) expected to be sidelined, he could potentially play a key role in the Patriots' game plan.

  • White (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Titans after logging a limited practice Thursday. We'd expect White, who last suited up on Dec. 17, to return to the Patriots' backfield mix this weekend. If that's the case, he'd be working behind Dion Lewis, though if White's ankle holds up okay, he'd figure to reclaim his role as a trusted pass-catching option (for QB Tom Brady) out of the the team's backfield. Rex Burkhead (knee) and Mike Gillislee (knee) are also listed as questionable for the contest, but at least one of that duo figures to suit up Saturday. In such a committee context, White profiles as a speculative play in postseason PPR formats.

  • Patriots' James White: Limited participant Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    White (ankle) was limited in Tuesday's practice. On the heels of two absences at the end of the regular season and the Patriots' first-round bye, White nonetheless is getting eased into action due to a lingering ankle injury. He joins fellow running back Rex Burkhead (knee) as a limited participant in the first practice of the divisional round, steps ahead of Mike Gillislee (knee), who was a DNP. Behind starter Dion Lewis, there should be some room for reps out of the backfield, but it remains to be seen if White or Burkhead will be the beneficiary in what is notoriously a matchup-dependent game script for New England. The preceding assumes White and/or Burkhead emerge from the week of prep ready to play Saturday versus the Titans.
