Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White was active as promised and led the team with 14 targets in Week 4 against Minnesota.
Insight: His hamstring injury was never a real concern. He turned those targets into 73 yards and one touchdown. We think Ryan forced the ball to White too often and down the road will utilize Julio Jones more, but we're happy to see White was healthy.

Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White is inactive for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers.

Description: CBS' Jason La Canfora does "not expect" Roddy White to be active for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers.
Insight: This is news to us as the Falcons and Atlanta media have continually indicated that White will play despite missing practice all week. There is a chance that White is used as a decoy, but the La Canfora report is still very odd. Regardless, be wary that White is not at full strength, on a short week and has been used as a decoy when nursing a hamstring injury before.

Insight: White banged his knee in Week 1 and facing a tough Bengals defense figured to struggle and he did. He should be feeling better for the matchup with the Bucs, but not matter how good he feels if Julio Jones is in the lineup, White is the No. 2 target.

Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White caught three passes for 34 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.
Insight: White looks to be the underneath, possession receiver this year with Julio Jones clearly taking the big play wide receiver role. But if White can actually stay healthy this season, he could see a lot more targets with Tony Gonzalez retiring. He is a value pick in the fourth or fifth round.
