The "should have been" Super Bowl MVP has been underrated this off-season, but not by the people that matter most. The Patriots extended him this off-season and paid him more than any other running back on the roster. He was the only player who finished in the top-36 last year without seeing at least 110 touches. If his role grows, as we expect it to, White should be in the running to finish as an RB2 in PPR leagues and a solid RB3 in standard leagues.

James White inks extension

The New England Patriots and running back James White have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

White, who would have entered his walk-year in 2017, signed a three-year contract extension with the Patriots Tuesday tieing him to the club until 2021. The 25-year-old rusher is coming off of a career year in 2016 accumulating 166 yards on the ground on 39 carries and a 4.3 YPC average. However, he did the majority of his damage as a receiver out of the backfield, producing a 60-551-5 stat line. White's fantasy value for 2017 is a question mark despite his good fortunes from last season. Not only are the Patriots searching for a power back in case LeGarrette Blount doesn't re-sign, but they also signed Rex Burkhead, who has a similar skill-set to White's. Sprinkle Dion Lewis into the mix and New England has an extremely crowded backfield leading me to believe that they will continue to roll with the hot hand as they had for much of the 2016 campaign.
