White carried the ball once for 14 yards in the team's wild-card round loss to the Titans. He added five receptions for 62 yards. White led the Patriots in both receptions and yards, providing a spark for the offense that was otherwise lacking. Notably, White accounted for three of the team's six longest plays, highlighted by a 29-yard screen pass on the first possession of the game. White once again proved to be a weapon as a pass catcher throughout the campaign, totaling 645 yards and five scores through the air. Though less productive on the ground, he's carved out a clear niche in the Patriots' offense and will be entering the final year of his contract in 2020.
White rushed twice for four yards and secured all three targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' 27-24 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. White played a typically minor role in the running game, but he salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with his fifth receiving score of the season in the fourth quarter. The versatile back finished the regular season with multiple catches in all but one of his 15 games and will look to play his usual complementary role in next weekend's wild-card matchup against the Titans.
White logged 33 of a possible 73 snaps on offense in Saturday's 24-17 win over the Bills, en route to carrying three times for five yards and catching four of his five targets for 24 yards. Meanwhile, Sony Michel ran 21 times for 96 yards, adding a five-yard reception, and Rex Burkhead ran five times for 20 yards and a TD while catching four passes for 77 yards. Burkhead's increased involvement in the passing game Saturday cut into White's production, but looking ahead to Week 17 and the playoffs, White, who remains a trusted target of QB Tom Brady, should see enough targets to merit PPR consideration.
White caught three of four targets for 49 yards and a touchdown and added 13 yards on three carries during Sunday's 34-13 win over the Bengals. White got New England on the board early in the first quarter, taking a quick screen for a 23-yard touchdown as he twisted and turned through Cincinnati's defense. White now has three receiving touchdowns in December after just two total touchdowns in his first 11 games and a general late-November lull in production. The storyline in New England has been that Tom Brady lacks trust in the majority of his potential targets. White and Julian Edelman may be the only exceptions, so it's reasonable to expect Brady to look the veteran back's way often down the stretch. Next up is a Buffalo defense that White nabbed eight passes for 57 yards against in Week 4.
White carried the ball six times for 33 yards and caught five of seven targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Chiefs. Despite the modest numbers, White was the most consistent member of the Patriots' backfield on the afternoon. Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden combined for only 33 rushing yards on 13 carries, although Bolden did find the end zone. White will try to take advantage of another plus matchup Week 15 on the road against the Bengals' porous defense.
