James White (personal) inactive Week 2

RB James White (personal) is inactive for Sunday’s Week 2 contest against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Andy Slater of Fox Sports is reporting “James White's father was in a car crash today and did not survive. His mother was also in the car and is in critical condition. James White was told and is inactive tonight.” Sony Michel, JJ Taylor and Rex Burkhead will be the only active Patriots’ running backs for Sunday Night Football.

James White totals 52 yards against the Dolphins

James White rushed five times for 22 yards and caught three passes for 30 yards as the Patriots took down the Dolphins in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

New England was in complete control of this one throughout the day, so White wasn't needed much in "hurry-up" mode. Cam Newton certainly looked healthy, which is a good sign for the Patriots' offense moving forward. White will be a PPR FLEX play in Week 2 against the Seahawks.

James White could 'have a heavy role' according to beat writer

Jeff Howe of The Athletic writes that James White could "have a heavy role" if Cam Newton wins the starting quarterback job.

Fantasy Impact

The rationale is that Christian McCaffrey had a monster 2018 performance, hauling in 107 of 124 targets playing with Newton. White obviously won't see many rushing attempts but he remains a solid FLEX play in PPR formats.

James White has solid PPR outing in Wild Card loss

James White rushed once for 14 yards and caught all five of his targets for 62 yards in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans. White was credited with a fumble on a desperation lateral play on the final play of the game, a kick return.

Fantasy Impact

White was solid in this game, acting as the security blanket as usual. He has PPR appeal if Tom Brady returns, but with a different quarterback and a different looking offense in 2020 being a distinct possibility, White's value is very much up in the air. White is signed through next season with the Patriots.

James White scores to salvage down game in Week 17

James White rushed twice for four yards and caught all three of his targets for 33 yards in the Patriots' Week 17 loss to the Dolphins. White scored a receiving touchdown and also fumbled.

Fantasy Impact

White has been Mr. Reliable for the Patriots offense this season, as well as for fantasy owners in PPR leagues. White will remain a safety blanket for Tom Brady and the Patriots throughout the playoffs, and should take advantage of the tough rushing matchup next week, as the Patriots would figure to lean more on White than on Sony Michel.
