The Raiders selected White in the fourth round of the NFL Draft from Georgia, and the rookie should be the No. 3 running back this season behind Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake. In redraft leagues, White is only worth a late-round flier in deeper formats. In rookie-only drafts, White is worth drafting as early as Round 2. There's a chance White could be in a prominent role for the Raiders in 2023 if Jacobs and Drake don't return, so keep that in mind in Dynasty and long-term keeper leagues. However, if Jacobs and Drake are healthy this season, we don't expect White to get much work. In his final two seasons at Georgia, White combined for 304 carries, 1,635 yards and 22 rushing touchdowns, and he could become a quality Fantasy option next season for the Raiders if he ends up in a starting role.
The Raiders selected White in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 122nd overall. This is an interesting pick in light of the Raiders declining to pick up Josh Jacobs' fifth-year option Friday. White was a highly regarded recruit coming out of high school but two ACL tears -- one in high school and one as a freshman at Georgia -- kept him out until 2019. He was lightly used in 2019 before taking on more of a lead role in his final two seasons, when he combined for 304 carries, 1,635 yards and 22 rushing touchdowns. White is a physical, north-south runner at 6-foot and 214 pounds who is unlikely to have much of an impact as a pass catcher. Considering the injury history, White ran surprisingly well at the combine with a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash. He can challenge for early down work early in his Raiders career but is not a major threat to Jacobs' workload just yet.
