Roddy White will play against Giants, improving his fantasy value

Kevin C. Cox

Roddy White will be active when the Falcons take on the Giants Sunday, so he's safe to start in your fantasy playoffs.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White will play in Sunday's game against the New York Giants, according to Kimberly Jones of NFL Network.

White was listed as questionable on the injury report due to a knee injury. He was held out of practice on Friday, but has not missed a game in his eight-year career, so it shouldn't come as a huge surprise that he's going to fight through this injury. The Falcons have a big game against the Giants on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Roddy White's presence in the lineup is crucial to the fantasy value of the entire offense. Matt Ryan is more effective with all of his weapons healthy, and Julio Jones benefits from White taking some attention away from him.

Fantasy owners are safe to start White this week. The Giants aren't the most difficult matchup.
