Roddy White not finished yet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) 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
(10/19/2014) 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
(10/17/2014) 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. 


Falcons WR Roddy White disappointed in 2014 performance


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Drops and uncharacteristically poor production have plagued Falcons usually prolific wideout Roddy White this season. He understands the importance of turning it around.

"I've gotten off to a really slow start," he admitted to ESPN.com. "Not one of my favorable years that I'm having. But I've got to turn my game around for our team to start playing better. I'm a leader on this team, and I haven't been going out there and playing like Roddy White football. I've got to get back to just being myself - go out there and just cut it loose - and whatever happens, happens."

White has just 19 receptions for 253 yards in five games and is on pace for his worst season as a starter. He has also three drops among the 39 passes thrown in his direction.


Falcons WR Roddy White limited to 40 yards in Week 6 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Falcons wide receiver Roddy White caught three of his six targets for just 40 yards in his team's 27-13 loss to the Bears in Week 6.

White has yet to catch more than five passes in a game this year, and he was done in by an uneven performance by the Falcons offense across the board as quarterback Matt Ryan completed just more than half of his attempts while the running game picked up just 42 yards on 13 carries. White has totaled 18 catches, 253 yards and two touchdowns in five games. He'll attempt to pick up the pace when he faces the Ravens in Week 7.


Julio Jones overshadows Roddy White


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was so focused on getting the ball to wide receiver Julio Jones that Roddy White became an afterthought Week 5 at the Giants. He was targeted just four times, catching two passes for 26 yards.

Jones, meanwhile, was targeted 16 times, one off his career high, catching 11 passes for 105 yards. While Jones now has three games of 100 yards or more (and five of 80 or more), White has yet to go for more than 73 in a game.

He did get 14 targets just last week at Minnesota, though, so to say he's a forgotten man in the Falcons passing game wouldn't be entirely true. But it's becoming more and more clear now that both players are healthy again that White is playing second fiddle to Jones.

And that makes him less than an every-week starter, maybe even less than a No. 2 wide receiver, in Fantasy.


Falcons WR Roddy White fails to record TD in Week 5 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Falcons wide receiver Roddy White vowed to score Week 5 at N.Y. Giants after having a few drops in a Week 4 loss against the Vikings. Unfortunately, White wasn't able to deliver on his promise, as he was held to just two catches for 26 yards and no touchdowns in a 30-20 loss Sunday.

White was targeted four times and his longest reception went 22 yards. He hasn't had more than 73 receiving yards in a game this season.

The Falcons are back in action Week 6 vs. Chicago.


Falcons WR Roddy White: 'I will score this weekend'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Falcons premier wideout Roddy White was not satisfied with his Week 4 performance despite having caught four passes for 73 yards and a touchdown - and he plans on visiting the end zone with the ball this Sunday against the Giants for the first time in his career.

"I have to play better," White told ESPN. "I had two drops in that game [against the Vikings]. ... I will score this weekend."

White, who has not scored against the Giants in five career opportunities, has 14 receptions for 187 yards and two touchdowns in three games this year. His numbers were significantly down in 2013 after six consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.


Roddy White hauls in a score Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Falcons wide receiver Roddy White picked up a score Week 4.

White caught four passes for 73 yards during the contest. He was targeted a team-high 14 times during the game. White wasted no time finding the end zone. On his second reception, White benefitted from a blown coverage. He wound up wide open for the 24 yard strike. Though the Falcons would try to involve White, he didn't make his third catch until late in the third quarter. 

White will look for more Week 5 against the Giants.

Roddy White has played plenty of games without practicing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Falcons receiver Roddy White wasn't on the field for Wednesday's walkthrough. He has not practiced all week ahead of Thursday's game with the Buccaneers.

But coaches and teammates expect White, who is questionable with a hamstring injury, to play and play well.

"Roddy has played plenty of games in his career without practice," offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said. "Roddy has been in this offense for seven, eight years, since coach [Mike] Murlarkey came before me. Sometimes, you're worried about players, assignment-wise. But on a short week, you're not putting a complicated game plan [together] anyway. All the stuff that's in this game plan, Roddy knows it. When it's an experienced guy like Roddy, it's way more about his health than about 'Is he going to know what to do?'

"If Roddy's healthy, if he's able to go full speed, he'll play good."

Fellow wideout Julio Jones told ESPN.com that White is "going to be fine. He always comes back."

"Right now, our goal is to have Roddy as healthy as he can be for the ball game on Thursday night.''
