RB - NE
Veteran running back James White will be back in New England for two more years.
The deal is worth $2.5 million with $500,000 guaranteed. The former fourth round pick of the Patriots, White has played his entire career under Bill Belichick, racking up 381 receptions for 1278 yards and 25 touchdowns. He is a safer play in PPR leagues for this purpose while keeping in mind that New England's backfield is one of the most unpredictable for fantasy in the league.
The Patriots placed RB James White (hip) on injured reserve.
White is expected to miss the remainder of the 2021 season due to hip surgery. Rhamondre Stevenson, Brandon Bolden, and J.J. Taylor could also see passing down work as Damien Harris continues to handle early down opportunities.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports James White (hip) is expected to miss the remainder of the 2021 season.
White is believed to be dealing with a "hip subluxation" and further medical examinations make it likely he's done for the season. A combination of J.J. Taylor, Rhamondre Stevenson, and Brandon Bolden could fill White's pass-catching/pass-blocking role. Through three weeks it doesn't seem as if the Patriots trust Damien Harris in pass protection, which limits his fantasy upside.
Per Ian Rapoport, Patriots RB James White suffered a hip subluxation on Sunday
After exiting Sunday's game, an MRI revealed that White suffered a hip subluxation. The veteran RB will likely be headed to injured reserve. Brandon Bolden saw the biggest increase in snaps with White out.
Patriots running back James White was carted off the field with a hip injury. New England quickly ruled him out for the remainder of the game.
White hit the ground hard after rushing for six yards and was ruled out almost immediately. The veteran running back has posted 132 scrimmage yards and one touchdown this season. Damien Harris will continue to fill the lead role in the backfield while J.J. Taylor serves as the backup. Rhamondre Stevenson, who was a healthy scratch on Sunday, could figure into the mix going forward if White is forced to miss time.
