Roddy White found himself limited in practice with a groin injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was limited in practice on Thursday as the Falcons prepare for the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. White is apparently suffering from a groin injury, but it is not expected to cause him any missed time and he is likely just getting a little bit of extra rest this week. The veteran receiver had 6 catches for 87 yards in their week 1 win over the Chiefs.

Fantasy Analysis: Week 1 of the new offense was a rousing success under offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter in Atlanta's 40-24 win over Kansas City. While Julio Jones had the bigger day with 108 yards and two touchdowns, I expect that they will interchange between who has more fantasy value on any given week but also both be WR1s this season. The groin issue seems like a non-issue, but it's worth keeping an eye on the injury report.
