Patriots | New England likely to add at RB

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 21:06:41 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White played 57 of the 83 offensive snaps in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24, and RB Brandon Bolden played 16. RB Steven Jackson rounded things out with 11 snaps. The team will also get RB Dion Lewis (knee) back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2016, while RB LeGarrette Blount is an impending free agent. The team might face an offseason similar to 2011 when the selected a pair of backs in the NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has the potential to be the top running back with this current group, with White and Bolden as solid backups. However, look for a rookie, and possibly a veteran running back, to be added in the offseason to provide competition.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount staying with Patriots?

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:50:08 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount could be on his way out of New England as he enters free agency this offseason. RB Dion Lewis (knee) will return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and RB James White filled in nicely for Lewis. The Patriots also have another big back on their roster in RB Steven Jackson, putting Blount's future with New England in limbo.

Fantasy Tip: Gone are the days of Blount rushing for hundreds of yards and multiple touchdowns. The Patriots do need a ground-and-pound type of running back, but Blount may not be the answer for the future. This situation will play out over the course of the next few months, but Blount may be heading for fantasy irrelevancy.

Patriots | James White could be busy

Sat, 23 Jan 2016 18:25:15 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White faces the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game, and no team allowed more catches or receiving touchdown to running backs in the regular season than the Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots threw the ball 42 times and ran just 16 times against Denver in the regular season, so White ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) should have plenty of opportunities to use his pass-catching skills. If you don't want to pay up for one of the top backs available at FantasyScore, White could make an effective alternative.

Patriots | James White pricey per touch

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 20:11:08 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White posted one carry for five yards and two receptions for 39 yards on three targets last weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs, and now he'll face the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

Fantasy Tip: White ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) was productive per touch, but there weren't that many with a healthy Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski sucking up most of the New England targets, and Steven Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) seeing most of the carries. White has the potential to be a game changer, but his touches are limited and his FantasyScore salary is way up. That's not a good combination, even with a short slate of games.

Patriots | New England RBs set for a small workload?

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 05:15:59 -0800

The New England Patriots ran the ball just nine times during their Week 7 game against the New York Jets, and a similar game plan is likely for their Week 16 meeting, in the opinion of WEEI.com's Christopher Price. RBs James White, Brandon Bolden, Joey Iosefa and Steven Jackson project to have a tough task this week, as New England has averaged 18 carries for just 62 yards over the past five games against the Jets.

Fantasy Tip: For the season, New York owns the second best run defense in yards per game. So with the New England backfield loaded with options, it will be difficult to trust anyone outside of White ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in PPR formats, including at FantasyScore. Jackson, Bolden ($3,400, 6.8%) and Iosefa ($2,000, 4.0%) are nothing more than fliers in all formats because of their uncertain workload and difficult matchup.

Patriots | Pats backfield distributes workload

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 09:20:27 -0800

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden played 29 snaps in Week 15 against the Tennessee Titans, while RB James White played 23 snaps. RB Joey Iosefa was on the field for 19 offensive snaps (17 as an running back and two as a fullback), and finished with a team-high 51 yards on 14 carries in his NFL debut.

Fantasy Tip: Bill Belichick is constantly changing things up in his backfield, making it very tough to predict who will give you the most fantasy success. Things will get even more confusing after they just signed Steven Jackson. It wouldn't be smart to expect S-Jax to contribute much right away, but picking a daily option between Bolden, White and Iosefa is like playing the lottery.

Patriots | James White fine in relief

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 15:43:09 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White caught seven passes for 71 yards and had one rush for six yards in a 33-16 win over the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: White ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) was the replacement running back for Dion Lewis and LeGarrette Blount, but you wonder if he fits in better as a receiver. Whatever the case, it looks like he could be an effective relief rusher or pass-catcher.

Patriots | James White, Keshawn Martin score

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 22:47:42 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White ran once for a two-yard touchdown in Week 14 against the Houston Texans, and he added four grabs for 38 yards. WR Keshawn Martin also scored a touchdown, finishing with three catches and 23 yards.

Fantasy Tip: White and Martin are getting opportunities in the offense with several injuries on the offensive side of the football. White is a decent flex fantasy option in standard fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, while Martin is a decent low-end WR3 or flex option in FantasyScore.

Patriots | Two TDs for James White

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 22:45:26 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White rushed twice for 14 yards and a touchdown in the Week 11 game against the Buffalo Bills Monday, Nov. 23, and he added two receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: White appears to be ready to fill the role previously held by the injured Dion Lewis. He will be a popular addition in standard and PPR fantasy formats going forward.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount leads snap count

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 06:27:12 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount played 38 snaps (52% of the offense) Sunday, Nov. 15. RB James White played 28 snaps (38% of the offense) against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: These two will probably be interchangeable some weeks, but Blount looks to be the leader of the backfield for now.
