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

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (knee) was able to start in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He finished with five reception for 42 yards, and he was targeted eight times.
Fantasy Tip: White came in with a knee injury, but was able to make it through the entire game without any setbacks. FantasyScore owners can feel confident using him in Week 3.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Thu, 14 Aug 2014 06:11:12 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White is resting Thursday, Aug. 14.

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 12:59:17 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Aug. 11.

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.
Wed, 28 May 2014 14:18:03 -0700

I think when he comes in, he'll be ready to go. I think right now he's doing a fabulous job of being the man of the house and making sure that he's a part of the healing process."

I was thinking if I could just get 10, I'll be all right."

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.
Mon, 02 Dec 2013 06:00:44 -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."
Thu, 21 Nov 2013 16:47:05 -0800

Fri, 15 Nov 2013 13:26:22 -0800
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (shoulder) fully practiced and is probable for the team's Week 11 game.
Fantasy Tip: This may be as healthy as White has been all season, and it is tempting to get him in your lineups. The only problem with that is that he is likely to see a lot of Darrelle Revis in this week's matchup. You may be better off waiting another week.
Thu, 14 Nov 2013 11:16:31 -0800
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 14.

Wed, 13 Nov 2013 13:16:05 -0800
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.
Fantasy Tip: The shoulder is a new injury for White. There is nothing to indicate he will not play this week, but may see a lot of Darrelle Revis. If you have a better option, it may be a smart move to go in that direction this week.
Tue, 12 Nov 2013 11:09:11 -0800
The Atlanta Falcons plan to monitor WR Roddy White's (ankle, hamstring) workload for the remainder of the season, and head coach Mike Smith said White was capped out at 55 of the team's 58 offensive snaps in Week 10. He had only one catch for 20 yards and was thrown to four times. Smith doesn't plan on another receiver taking White's role as the No. 1 receiver unless he suffers a setback. However, Smith hinted that the limited snaps for White would at least carry over into Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "I think when you start talking about 55 plays, an average game is usually somewhere between 65 and 70," Smith said. "I think Roddy will play as many plays as we can possible give him. That (55) was on the upper limit, by the way, in terms of the number of snaps that we anticipated him playing." White said he felt fine after the game.
Fantasy Tip: White should see his PT increase through the remainder of the season if he continues to prove he's over his nagging injuries. Still, he'll be a weak play at wideout until we see those snaps go up significantly.

Sun, 10 Nov 2013 08:49:18 -0800

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 19:20:01 -0800

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 15:43:34 -0800
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 7.
Fantasy Tip: Finally, we're starting to see some real progress from White, who has been a monumental disappointment this season. He's still a very risky play this weekend despite the fact that he expects to return. To be on the safe side, sit him out another week if you have the luxury of doing so.
Thu, 07 Nov 2013 09:06:11 -0800
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) said he is "pretty sure" he will play in the team's Week 10 game.

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 12:59:11 -0800
