Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White said he knows has been off to a slow start this season and will try to improve his play. "I've gotten off to a really slow start," White said. "Not one of my favorable years that I'm having. But I've got to turn my game around for our team to start playing better. I'm a leader on this team, and I haven't been going out there and playing like Roddy White football. I've got to get back to just being myself - go out there and just cut it loose - and whatever happens, happens." White has dropped three passes on 39 targets this season, which is tied for fourth most among receivers.
Fantasy Tip: White does not appear to be limited by an injury, so he is not playing his best at the moment. White costs $5,800 on FantasyScore, but owners may consider avoiding him until he can be more consistent with his production.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (head) appeared to suffered an apparent head injury in the second quarter of the Week 6 game against the Chicago Bears, but no foul was called. The training staff is working on him on the sidelines, and he was able to return after a brief absence.
Thu, 09 Oct 2014 20:50:04 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White is running an NFL-leading 40.5 routes per game this season.
Fantasy Tip: Although White has been on the field a lot this season, his heavy usage hasn't translated into big numbers just yet. That being said, the pass-happy Falcons are at home against a Chicago team with a mediocre secondary in Week 6, and White had five catches for 72 yards and a score in his lone home start this year. He will take up 11.6% of the cap ($5,800) at FantasyScore and could make a nice value pick.
Sun, 05 Oct 2014 14:55:01 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White had just two catches for 26 yards in the Week 5 game against the New York Giants. He was able to reach 700 receptions for his career, becoming just the 43rd player in NFL history to reach that number.
Sat, 04 Oct 2014 17:47:44 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White has not scored a touchdown in five career games against the New York Giants, but he guaranteed that he will change that when the team's meet in Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: White has scored in two of the three games he has played in this season, and last week, he saw a season-high 14 targets. Meanwhile, the Giants have struggled to defend the pass this year and the Falcons have struggled to defend in general so there is a good chance that White could see a heavy workload in a high-scoring game. He is worth considering at FantasyScore in Week 5 at his $5,800 salary (11.6% of cap).
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.
Fri, 26 Sep 2014 10:44:04 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is probable for Week 4 against the Minnesota Vikings, and he will play.

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) will start the Week 4 game Sunday, Sept. 28, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 12:12:17 -0700

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 08:38:34 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) said he believes he is ready to play in the team's Week 4 game.
Fantasy Tip: White missed last week's game because of the injury but believes he will be on the field for Week 4. Even though White could be a risky play because of the injury, he costs $6,200 on FantasyScore this week and could be a solid option if he is not limited.
Wed, 24 Sep 2014 13:29:44 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.
Fantasy Tip: White will have over a week to rest up for the Week 4 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. If he plays, he could be a nice play at FantasyScore for $6,200 (12.4% of cap).
Wed, 24 Sep 2014 11:45:00 -0700
Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White (hamstring) is working off to the side with trainers during practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.

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

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.
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.
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.
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
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.

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.

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 06:11:12 -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.

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."
