He's one of the trickiest evaluations in fantasy football this year, as losing Tom Brady is going to affect him in a big way. The question becomes: Just how much upside will he lose? White was never someone you relied on for RB1 or RB2 production, but he would give you spikes in production from your flex spot that could help you win a week. He's seen a massive 290 targets over the last three years, and it's extremely unlikely the Patriots have Jarrett Stidham drop back anywhere close to the number of times Brady did. Not just that, but Brady always targeted his running backs in the passing game. There are just too many questions to rely on him for anything for more than low-end RB3/high-end RB4 production.

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.
