Description: The Falcons have signed receiver Roddy White to a three-year extension, according to Adam Schefter.
Insight: White came on strong in December after an injury-plagued first three months. The 32-year-old is eighth among active players in career receiving yards with 9,436 in nine seasons in the league. He and Julio Jones make up one of the league's top tandems.

12/11/2013 4:06:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White (knee) was limited during Wednesday's practice, according to Vaughn McClure of espn.com.
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.
 
12/1/2013 7:47:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White had the game fantasy owners have been waiting for all season Sunday against the Bills, catching 10 of his 14 targets for 143 yards.
Insight: White played through a high-ankle sprain for the first five games and then sat out three games. He came in with just 20 catches, 209 yards and one touchdown on the year.
 
11/21/2013 11:34:00 AM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White finally caught a touchdown pass last Sunday, his first of the season.
Insight: White finally appeared healthy, but did have to face Darrelle Revis. He should get more chances this Thursday and could finally begin to repay fantasy owners for their patience.
 
11/17/2013 5:01:00 PM
Description: After struggling with injuries the entire season, Falcons receiver Roddy White finally caught a touchdown Sunday against the Buccaneers.
Insight: He pulled in a six-yard catch with 1:45 remaining and lost the ball while trying to back into the end zone. However, the play was ruled a touchdown upon review. White finally appears healthy but has had to face Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis over the last two weeks. He can safely be put back in fantasy lineups in Week 12 against the Saints.
 
11/10/2013 11:50:00 AM
Description: After a three-week absence, Atlanta wide receiver Roddy White will finally return to the field Sunday against Seattle.
Insight: White had been out with a hamstring injury. It's a tough matchup but with Julio Jones out of the lineup, White should see more targets than he has all season. He's a flex consideration for Week 10.
 
11/7/2013 4:25:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) wouldn't say if he is 100 percent healthy, but did note that he could run at full speed, plant his feet and cut into his routes, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Insight: "How I felt at the beginning of the season and right now is totally different," White said. "I’ve been doing a lot of work inside the weight room and outside, getting myself ready to go. It’s going to be a battle out there. I’m excited. I just want to get back out there on the field and play." White is expected to return to action Sunday against Seattle after missing the last three games and playing hurt the first five. However, he'll have to face lockdown cornerback Richard Sherman so fantasy owners should leave him on the bench for another week.
 
11/7/2013 12:09:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) says he is pretty sure he is going to play Sunday against Seattle, according to Vaughn Mcclure.
Insight: White has been playing injured and doing nothing for fantasy owners. If healhty he'd be a stud with Julio Jones gone for the season, but over the first nine weeks he hasn't been able to do the things he usually does on the field.
 
11/3/2013 12:11:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Insight: White is trying to get fully healthy before returning, and he's not there yet. Harry Douglas is a must-start WR1 and Drew Davis makes for a WR3 in deeper leagues.
 
11/3/2013 10:07:00 AM
Description: Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports Falcons receiver Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) is not expected to play Sunday against the Panthers "barring significant improvement."
Insight: Harry Douglas is a must-start even if White plays and Drew Davis makes for a WR3 in deeper leagues if White is out.
 
11/1/2013 12:25:00 PM
Description: Atlanta receiver Roddy White returned to practice on Friday, giving fantasy owners hope that he'll be on the field Sunday.
Insight: While he was limited to running, if he can run he should be able to play. So far this season even when White was on the field, he was mostly used as a decoy. Hopefully that will change soon.

Description: Atlanta receiver Roddy White's status remains in question for Sunday's game against Carolina. SOURCE: Joe Person, Charlotte Oberver
Insight: After going eight years straight without missing a game, White has now missed two contests in a row with a bum hamstring. Assuming he sits out again in Week 9, Harry Douglas, Drew Davis and tight end Tony Gonzalez will be Matt Ryan's main targets in the passing game.
 
10/25/2013 4:43:00 PM
Description: Falcons wideout Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Cardinals.
Insight: White missed his first game ever last week and he'll miss a second straight in Week 8 while trying to get fully healthy for the second half of the season. Harry Douglas is a must-start.
 
10/18/2013 3:36:00 PM
Description: Falcons wideout Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Insight: At least fantasy owners don't have to wonder whether to start him anymore. White aggravated his ankle injury in Week 4 against New England and added a hamstring injury to his list of issues in Week 5. This will be the first game White has ever missed.
 
10/17/2013 2:24:00 PM
Description: Falcons wideout Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) did not practice Wednesday or Thursday.
Insight: He aggravated the ankle injury in Week 4 against New England and added a hamstring injury to his list of issues in Week 5. That he's still unable to practice after Atlanta's bye week means you should be putting together an alternative plan as he's likely to miss the first game of his career.
 
10/16/2013 6:39:00 PM
Description: Falcons wideout Roddy White (hamstring, ankle) did not practice Wednesday for the second straight day.
Insight: With the Falcons at 1-4, the decision to have White play through his ankle sprain looks like a poor one. He aggravated the injury in Week 4 against New England and added a hamstring injury to his list of issues in Week 5. That he's still unable to practice after Atlanta's bye week is not a good sign.
 
10/15/2013 11:20:00 AM
Description: Falcons wideout Roddy White (hamstring and ankle injury) did not practice on Tuesday.
Insight: It's not good that coming off a bye week he still can't practice, White hasn't looked right all season and now with Julio Jones lost for the year, it may be Harry Douglas' time to shine. And ageless Tony Gonzalez.
 
10/9/2013 7:46:00 PM
Description: The Falcons are concerned that Roddy White's hamstring injury may cause him to miss multiple games. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: These are uncharted waters for White, who has never missed a game in eight NFL seasons. He hasn't looked right all season and now with Julio Jones lost for the year, it may be time for the Falcons to just mail it in. Harry Douglas and tight end Tony Gonzalez should see increased production with White and Jones out of the lineup.
 
Cold10/8/2013 7:53:00 PM
Description: Falcons receiver Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) is "probably 50-50 at best" for Week 7 against the Buccaneers. SOURCE: Jason Cole, National Football Post
Insight: White aggravated his ankle sprain in Week 4 against the Patriots and then suffered a hamstring injury Monday night against the Jets. With Julio Jones (foot) expected to miss the rest of the season and White dealing with nagging injuries, fantasy owners should make Harry Douglas the No. 1 waiver priority this week. Atlanta has a bye in Week 6 but Douglas will start in Week 7.
