Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
PPR drafters seeking a cheap share in New England's offense can snatch White with a RB40 ADP. Although he exceeded that value in each of the past three years (RB39, 26, 38), it's hard to get excited about a low-level flex play who produced 11 receiving yards or fewer in six of 14 games while totaling 171 rushing yards. He'll probably outperform his ADP in PPR formats, but those points will come in unpredictable spurts.The only RB with 50+ catches in each of the last three seasons, Riddick has maintained PPR value (RB 18, 25, and 26) despite compiling 776 combined rushing yards on 219 carries. Drafters are nevertheless unethused with a steady hand who has not scored more than six TDs in a single season or hit the 100-yard plateau since Oct. 20, 2016. Kerryon Johnson's three-down abilities caps Riddick's ceiling, but he's a useful low-floor PPR bench pick.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
While Rex Burkhead is still is town and Sony Michel joined the group, remember that it was James White who finished the season getting goal-line work and is killing it in the preseason. If it carries over into the season, he would make for a terrific flex player week to week, especially early while Michel and Burkhead are banged up.The Lions backfield is loaded with several decent backs who are all about on the same level. It will be tough for most of them to find touches except for Riddick who has his job locked in. Expect much of the same, making him a solid depth piece to fill in during bye weeks and injuries.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
White has finished as a top-50 running back in each of the last three seasons, but never better than the RB35 in standard leagues. He's someone who will hurt you more than often because he simply doesn't get enough weekly touches to be consistent, meaning he'll need to score a touchdown to not completely bust. With Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead on the field, it's not likely that White earns any more work in 2018. He's just a spot-starter and one who'll be incredibly difficult to predict, though he should have more value over the first four weeks with Julian Edelman suspended. Possibly one of the hardest players to predict in fantasy football, as Riddick has been one of the more consistent RB3/RB4's in the game the last few years, but the scenery has changed quite a bit in Detroit.
Staff Rankings
QB List
White will be what he's always been-a worthwhile add in deeper PPR leagues and that's about it. He's not supplanting Rex Burkhead or Sony Michel in the pecking order any more than he was going to supplant Burkhead or Dion Lewis last year.In the past, Riddick has been a worthwhile flex option in PPR leagues but not worth much in standard leagues. Now, with the addition of Kerryon Johnson alongside LeGarrette Blount, Riddick's value may decrease even more. Still, he's a good pass-catching running back, so he might still get some work.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Should have a consistent role, especially with Michel going down with a bad knee. 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The Pats are just loaded at RB, otherwise White's versatility and PPR upside would be a lot more alluringRiddick has more value in PPR formats but even there it's tough to project him too high given all the bodies in DET now
