Roddy White injury: Active and will start, fantasy value holds steady

Kevin C. Cox

Atlanta's leading receiver missed practice all week but won't miss the game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is officially active on Sunday and will start against the New York Giants. White (knee) was out of practice all week and looked to be in danger of missing a game for the first time in his eight-year career, but has managed to come back healthy enough to start.

While Julio Jones gets a lot of attention, White is still the leading receiver for Atlanta. The veteran has 77 catches for 1,140 yards in 13 games.

Fantasy Take: Even if he's limited, what kind of a fool would tell you to bench Roddy White? The Giants are a below-average pass defense and White slots as an above-average WR2 at worst.
