White should have RB3 value on the road this week and WR Josh Gordon potentially missing this week could up the targets for White.

Did you know that in PPR formats, targets are worth 2.3 times more than carries? Knowing that White has seen nine targets in each of the last three games is equal to 20.7 carries to a running back. Over the last five years of White's career, he's scored a touchdown once every 16.9 touches. That number sits at one every 49.0 touches in 2019. Knowing we have such a large sample size we're working with; you know those are coming. He should be in lineups as a low-end RB2.

White has almost twice as many receptions (31) as rushing attempts (16). His receiving usage gives him a very high floor, but he doesn't offer the rushing or touchdown upside that would make him a stud. He's a great fill-in RB2 or a very solid FLEX.
