Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White had a nice day Sunday against the Browns.
Insight: He had nine catches for 96 yards, which led the team. White should continue to be a solid WR2.
 
11/16/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White led the team with eight catches, 75 yards and caught a touchdown against the Panthers in Week 11.
Insight: White led the team with 12 targets as well. It continues to be anyone's best guess as to whether Julio Jones or White will lead the Falcons in receiving any given week.
 
11/9/2014 7:20:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White scored a touchdown in Sunday's victory against Tampa Bay.
Insight: He had six receptions for 72 yards, on six targets. White is more of a borderline WR2 at this point in his career.
 
10/26/2014 1:09:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White led his team in targets, but it was just six.
Insight: He caught five for a team-high 66 yards, but he couldn't find the end zone. The two touchdown passes were scored by Devonta Freeman and Bear Pascoe. That couldn't have helped many fantasy owners.
 
10/19/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White was not at all a decoy on Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: In fact, he was the only worthy Falcons fantasy player to start. He had nine catches for 100 yards and a touchdown. White also had 15 targets, seven more than his buddy Julio Jones.
 
Cold10/13/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White has become a high-priced decoy.
Insight: White has yet to crack 75 yards receiving in a game this season despite averaging eight targets per game.
 
9/29/2014 10:39:00 AM
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.
 
9/28/2014 3:38:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White is indeed active for Week 4 against Minnesota as he said he would be.
Insight: His hamstring injury was never a real concern as he practiced all week. He is practicing this week. He's the No. 2 target behind Julio Jones.
 
9/26/2014 2:06:00 PM
Description: Coach Mike Smith said Falcons receiver Roddy White will absolutely start in Week 4 against Minnesota.
Insight: His hamstring injury was never a real concern. He is practicing this week and in the past, White plays when he practices.
 
9/25/2014 12:13:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White said he feels good to go for Sunday's game against the Vikings according to atlantafalcons.com.
Insight: White sat out last Thursday's game due to a short week. His hamstring injury was never a real concern. He is practicing this week and in the past, White plays when he practices.
 
9/18/2014 7:21:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White is inactive for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers.
Insight: CBS' Jason La Canfora reported he did "not expect" White to be active on Thursday, which was news to us because the Falcons had been adament that White would play. Regardless, take White out of your lineup immediately and find a replacement.
 
9/18/2014 4:55:00 PM
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.
 
9/16/2014 4:25:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White (knee) had a quiet day Sunday, catching just five balls for 42 yards.
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.
 
9/14/2014 12:08:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White (knee) is "good to go" for Week 2 against the Bengals and officially active.
Insight: White banged his knee at the end of a 39-yard catch on Sunday against the Saints, which he admitted was a concern initially, but the receiver is no longer worried. White is slated to be a low-end WR1 and strong WR2 this week.

Insight: White banged his knee at the end of a 39-yard catch on Sunday against the Saints, which he admitted was a concern initially, but the receiver is no longer worried. Obviously, any injury, no matter how minor, is a concern for a 32-year-old receiver who missed time last year, but White is slated to be a low-end WR1 and strong WR2 this week.
 
8/23/2014 10:17:00 PM
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.
 
8/9/2014 9:44:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White appeared healthy is the short time he was on the field Friday night.
Insight: White was never 100 percent last season. He only played in the first quarter and caught four balls for 27 yards. He and Julio Jones make up one of the league's top tandems.

Insight: White has pulled in 18 receptions for 217 yards on 24 targets the last two games after being limited by ankle and hamstring injuries all season. The knee injury is new but White should be able to play and is a high-upside WR2 in a matchup against the Redskins.
