Falcons WR Roddy White leads the way with 66 yards in Week 8
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/26/14) Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was held out of the end zone in Sunday's defeat to the Lions in Week 8.
White got off to a fast start, hauling a 24-yard catch and a 12-yard catch on the opening drive. He led the way with a productive performance, catching five of six targets for 66 yards in a 22-21 defeat. He has 166 yards and a touchdown over his last two games.
The Falcons are on a bye Week 9 before returning Week 10 at Tampa Bay.
Falcons WR Roddy White trying to eliminate the drops
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(10/21/14) Falcons wideout Roddy White remains down on his play despite catching nine passes for 100 yards and a touchdown Week 7, reports ESPN.com. He has dropped five passes this year, tied for fourth-most in the NFL.
"Mentally, I feel like I'm in the game plan. Mentally, I feel prepared for the games. It's just ... I don't know what it is," he told the website. "I'm not finishing plays. I'm not doing what I'm supposed to do."
White, who turns 33 next month, vowed to fix the problem. And he said injuries are not a factor.
"It's frustrating me," he said. "I'll figure it out, though. I will figure it out."
Roddy White not finished yet
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(10/19/14) Though he's had a harder time staying involved in a struggling and crowded Falcons passing attack, wide receiver Roddy White showed he's still in quarterback Matt Ryan's sights Week 7 at Baltimore, leading the team in every relevant receiving category. His 15 targets were nearly twice as many as Julio Jones' eight, and he also set season highs with nine catches for 100 yards. He even scored a touchdown -- his third of the season -- on a 4-yard toss from Ryan in the fourth quarter.
It was the second time this season that he was far and away the Falcons' most targeted receiver, the other being Week 4 at Minnesota when he was targeted 14 times. His problem is consistency. In the two games in between, he was targeted a total of 10 times.
With the Falcons offensive line depleted and their running game not much of a threat, the Falcons passing attack may not be prolific enough to sustain both White and Jones. And more often than not, the winner will be Jones.
But White showed with this performance that he's still enough of a priority to start more weeks than not. If you have depth at wide receiver, he may not always be your first choice to start, but if he's all you have, you may not have much cause to upgrade either.
Falcons WR Roddy White eclipses 100 yards in Week 7 loss
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/19/14) Falcons wide receiver Roddy White had his best game of the season during a losing effort Week 7 at Baltimore. White, who was targeted a team-high 15 times, finished with nine catches for 100 yards and one touchdown during a 29-7 loss.
White had his first 100-yard game since Week 16 last season. It was his 39th career 100-yard game, including the playoffs.
White didn't have more than 73 receiving yards in a game this season heading into Sunday. He has three touchdowns in six games.
The Falcons are back in action Week 8 vs. Detroit.
Still waiting to trust Roddy White
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(10/17/14) Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been a major disappointment this season, and at this point Fantasy owners need him to show he can turn things around before relying on him, even with a solid matchup on the way in Week 7 against the Ravens.
White has failed to reach double digits in three of the team's five games, and does not yet have a 100-yard game this season. He has a chance to change that in Week 7 against a Ravens defense that has struggled to corral opposing wide receivers this season, but that is no guarantee. After all, he has just held in check by a Bears pass defense that had allowed seven receiving touchdowns to wide receivers in its previous four games.
Even in an injury-plagued 2013 campaign, White was more productive than this, so we aren't quite ready to write him off just yet. However, he has to have a make-good game before Fantasy owners want to trust him, so take a wait-and-see approach with White in Week 7. Consider him just a low-end starter.

|There's concern about Roddy White slowing down after a preseason high ankle sprain lasted with him well into November of last year, but the veteran is healthy and appears poised to rebound in 2014. He also finished last season strong with 43 catches for 502 yards (11.7 avg.) and two scores over five games. So there's some optimism that White, 32, can regain most of his form and be a strong contributor to a Falcons offense that desperately needs him considering the retirement of Tony Gonzalez. In fact he might end up being a very good draft value as a No. 3 receiver starting in Rounds 6 or 7 considering the number of targets he's sure to pick up in the Atlanta offense. Let's hope he doesn't pull a Duke and flame out early on like he did last season.
