Falcons | Roddy White expecting shootouts

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 17:55:08 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said he expects the team to be involved in high-scoring shootouts all year, and head coach Mike Smith agreed to an extent. "I don't like to think in terms of shootouts," Smith said. "But I definitely think we've got to score more than the other guy. We have to do whatever it takes."

Fantasy Tip: Although the combination of a strong offense and porous defense isn't necessarily a recipe for winning a Super Bowl, it is a fantasy-friendly recipe. Julio Jones, Roddy White and Matt Ryan should all be strong options at FantasyScore in Week 5 when the Falcons take on a Giants team defense 22nd against the pass.

Falcons | Roddy White inactive

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 15:54:44 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is inactive for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Remove White from any of your lineups immediately. Julio Jones should benefit from White's absence, as well as Harry Douglas, who is very cheap at FantasyScore ($4,700).

Falcons | Roddy White to sit out?

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:36:28 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) isn't expected to be active for the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18, in the opinion of CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora.

Fantasy Tip: We won't know for sure that White is inactive for another few hours, but it's safe to stray from him in your FantasyScore lineups. Julio Jones is a strong play, but downgrade Matt Ryan a bit in your weekly rankings.

Falcons | Roddy White expected to play

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 12:05:56 -0700

Updating previous reports, Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is expected to play in Week 3 unless a dramatic occurrence happens between now and the game.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like White will be on the field for Week 3, but he could be limited by the injury during the game. Owners should consider White as a risky option in all leagues this week. White costs $6,800 on FantasyScore, which may be too much to spend for some owners.

Falcons | Roddy White could play despite absence

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 10:43:25 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) doesn't need to practice at all this week in order to play in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Fantasy Tip: There's still a chance we see White on the field for Thursday night football. However, he likely won't be 100 percent, and he could have his snaps limited, making it unwise to run with him at FantasyScore for a price of $6,800 (13.6% of cap). Julio Jones becomes much more intriguing for your lineups.

Falcons | Roddy White questionable for Week 3

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 09:27:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: White should be considered a risky play in all leagues because there is a chance he does not play or is limited by his injury. White costs $6,800 on FantasyScore this week, which is probably too expensive for owners given his injury concerns.

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 08:55:31 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is not practicing Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: White probably will play Thursday, but if this turns out to be more than rest and he misses tomorrow, he'll be a shaky FantasyScore option at $6,800 (11.8% of your cap).

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 19:25:47 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) was listed as missing practice Monday, Sept. 15, due to a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Tip: The league requires teams playing Thursday to estimate status for practice Monday, but there is no physical practice session. White's status will be a lot more clear Tuesday and into Wednesday. Stay tuned.

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 18:30:50 -0700

Falcons | Roddy White probable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 11:13:01 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is probable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: White looks like he is good to go in Week 2, and has a FantasyScore price of $5,900 (11.80% of cap). The Falcons may find it hard to score against the Bengals in Week 2, so there may be better options on the board for you, especially if White is not fully healthy.

Falcons | Roddy White: Goal 30 points per game

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 09:57:51 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said the team's goal coming into the year was to put up 30 points per game. Since 2004, 12 teams have averaged 30 or more points per game, and those teams combined for a record of 155-37. Only one of those teams, the 2004 Kansas City Chiefs, failed to make the playoffs. The Falcons' highest average with QB Matt Ryan was 26.2 in 2002, when they finished 13-3.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons could find it hard to top 30 points against a nasty Cincinnati Bengals defense in Week 2, especially without tackle Jake Matthews. Temper your expectations a bit for Ryan and company after they put up points in bunches against the New Orleans Saints.

Falcons | Roddy White limited

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:54:04 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: White has a decent chance to play Week 2, but owners should continue to monitor his practice participation. White should start in most leagues if he plays, but owners at FantasyScore could consider cheaper options at wide receiver, because White at $5,900 could be too steep because of the injury.

Falcons | Roddy White limited in practice

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 13:05:13 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Atlanta will likely try to keep White rested throughout the year during the week to preserve his knee. He had a solid performance in Week 1, and as long as he's on the field, he's a decent option for FantasyScore players.

Falcons | Roddy White to manage knee issue

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 07:42:43 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) left the Week 1 game due to an ailment with his left knee but returned to the game. White admitted that he had his knee drained during the offseason but said an MRI wasn't required. White played in 67 of the 72 offensive snaps in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: The condition is worrisome, but White had five catches for 72 yards and a touchdown in the game despite the issue. White should continue to push through it. At $5,900 (11.8% of your cap) on FantasyScore for Week 2, he remains a decent WR2.

Falcons | Roddy White briefly leaves

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 11:40:34 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) left the game early Week 1 because of a knee injury but was able to return.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that White is not dealing with a serious injury and should be fine next week unless he suffers a setback. White could miss some practice time next week to allow the injury to heal.

Falcons | Roddy White excused from camp

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 18:43:03 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (rest) will not participate in the team's three-day minicamp, head coach Mike Smith said Tuesday, June 17. "We just felt like he needed to get some rest," Smith said. "He worked with us four days. We wanted to see where he was at. He worked extremely hard, so we're going to give him some time and let some of these young guys work." White was also excused from a majority of OTAs last week following the death of his brother.

Fantasy Tip: White dealt with nagging injuries to his ankle and hamstring last year that resulted in one of the worst seasons of his career. If he can stay healthy this year, he should be considered a solid No. 2 fantasy WR, especially in PPR formats.

Falcons | Roddy White not 100 percent

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 17:54:11 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle) had his best game of the season in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills, but he said Monday, Dec. 2, that he still isn't fully healthy. "My ankle is still bothering me, but I'm a football player," White said. "That's what they pay me to do: play football. And that's what I've been doing my whole life. That's all I know how to do. So I'm going to get myself out there and fight with my teammates every week, if I can. If I feel like I can go out there and be productive, I'm going to go out there and help my team win."

Fantasy Tip: White certainly looked a whole lot like the guy fantasy owners expected to see when they drafted him in the early rounds, although some owners might be out of the playoff hunt partially because he has missed so much time or been too hurt to show burst. If you're still alive, enjoy White's resurgence.

Falcons | Roddy White frustrated

Sat, 30 Nov 2013 07:41:14 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White is frustrated by injuries and his team's on the field performance in 2013. "Coming into this season, we had really high expectations and I had very high expectations for myself," said the nine-year veteran, who had 92 catches for 1,351 yards last year. "It's been frustrating because I'm not able to do what I set out to do, to be the kind of player that I want to be because I've been hobbled by the ankle, and then I hurt my hamstring." "It's been injury after injury, and I can't get my body to react. It's been a tough season overall for us because we've all been hurt. Injuries happen, but you don't expect them to have this much of an effect to where we're 2-9."
