White is coming off an ankle injury, but he appears on track to be starting in Week 1 and has never missed a game for the Falcons. I expect him to be a WR1 in this fantastic matchup against the Saints D.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Rowdy Roddy White worked out with Larry Fitzgerald this season, which shows his level of dedication. He hasnít missed a game in 8 seasons in the NFL, and has topped 1,000 receiving yards in 6 straight seasons. At 31 years old, age is a concern, but Iím not selling out White just yet in Atlantaís Dirk Koetter pass heavy offense.
Tate is in a contract year in Seattle and will be the focal point in the Receiving Game. With Percy Harvin likely out for the year, look for Golden Tate to easily surpass his 45 reception / 688 receiving yard mark this year.
  
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
White recorded his 6th straight season with 80 receptions, his 3rd straight season with 90 receptions and his 5th season with at least 1,200 yards receiving (3rd season of 1,300 yards). Consider him a low-end No.1 Fantasy WR in all leagues worth drafting as early as Round 3.
 
  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Roddy 'Show Stopper' White is ready to eat a big chunk of the Falcons passing game. Every season the Falcons keep saying White is slowing down and it's Jones' time, but all he does is show up. White is still one of the Fantasy greats in the game, and it does not hurt that the Falcons have a legitimate run game in 2013.
Tate is a great #3 WR, but his consistency will be on the low-end as the Seahawks are a team that blows other teams out. Which means he has to make his contributions earlier than later. Watch the situation on Percy Harvin develop with the Hip, could lead to Tate climbing this list.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
He's as steady as they go and should be ready to play after giving his ankle a long rest. He's never missed a game, so it would be beyond a shock if he missed this one.
The Panthers pass defense is young and untested and probably not that great. They are extremely strong on the defensive line and at linebacker, but Wilson's ability to escape should give Tate some good openings.
  
Raju Byfield

It shows depth at WR that Tate is ranked so low
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Awesome matchup but he's clearly not 100% so he's going to be a tough sell as an elite option.
Does have some upside but CAR tends to play fairly decent against pass.
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Roddy sometimes gets forgotten in all the Julio Jones hype, but he's still good for tons of yardage and a good amount of touchdowns. He's still very much involved in Atlanta.
