Dynasty Rookie Prospect Profile: Zamir White (2022 Fantasy Football)

Dynasty Rookie Prospect Profile: Zamir White (2022 Fantasy Football)

Zamir White arrived in Athens, Georgia, as an epic running back prospect. He exited Scotland High School in Laurinburg, North Carolina, with 7,169 rushing yards (9.7 yards per carry), an astounding 119 rushing touchdowns, and 34 100-yard rushing games (in 47 games). He also finished sixth in the 100 meters (10.85 seconds) state championship race in track. Per 247Sports, White was a five-star prospect as the No. 1 high school running back in the nation and the ninth overall player in 2018. White built this prodigious resume despite tearing his right ACL in a high school playoff game in 2017. He was dealt another monstrous blow in 2018, tearing his left ACL in a scrimmage.

White recovered in time for the 2019 season, playing 12 games. But with D’Andre Swift (RB – DET) as the lead back, White was only called upon for 78 carries and four targets. He took over the early-down role the next season, while James Cook factored in on early downs and in the passing game. White handled 144 carries while running a route on 24.3% of dropbacks. In 2021, White saw Cook eat into more of his work, as White’s carry total only increased by 16 totes (160) despite playing five more games, and his routes per dropback fell to 21.2%. Cook handled 113 carries with a 37.9% route rate. Projecting White to the NFL, he is likely the two-down hammer component of a committee approach. With a good combine showing in which he rocked the 40-yard dash (4.4, 93rd percentile) and broad jump (128 inches, 94th percentile) but disappointed in the vertical jump (33.5 inches, 37th percentile), he improved his stock. With White as a possible late Day 2 or early Day 3 pick, let’s examine the skill set he’ll add to an NFL franchise.
