Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Although White has slowly been losing touches and snaps for the Patriots, he has continued to produce almost every week for fantasy owners in all scoring formats. He is merely a low-end RB2 at this point, but that is startable for many teams still alive.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 White worryingly touched the ball just six times last week and is now averaging fewer than nine touches per game over the last month. Thankfully this matchup sets up well for him to be more involved. Pittsburgh likes to get after the passer, opening the door for more check-downs to running backs -- Christian McCaffrey, Leonard Fournette, and the Chargers backs have all had solid receiving games against the Steelers over the last month, so expect White to do the same. New England's backfield has become increasingly messy, making White a riskier week-to-week fantasy option than he was earlier in the year, but he deserves low-end RB2 consideration in this particular contest.

Unrelenting physical style leads to quality Fantasy totals againReduced snap counts a major concern
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Starting at running back for the team leading the NFL in rushes has its perks. Carson has handled 68 carries in four games since returning from a hip injury. The accompanying 344 total yards and three touchdowns make him the RB10 during that stretch. The 49ers, who rank 12th against the run, were the only one of those four opponents to hold him out of the end zone. Yet he should again see a heavy workload as the considerable favorite, so play him with confidence as a top-shelf RB2. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The 49ers are 17th against fantasy running backs, Carson should be a RB2 on the road this week against an opponent that he shredded for 108 yards from scrimmage in Week 13. White had a poor showing last week, but the Steelers have struggled to cover running backs receiving out of the backfield. White is a boom / bust flex option this week.
