Roddy White injury update: Falcons receiver's fantasy season has been a disaster so far

Roddy White sat out of practice on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Falcons receiver Roddy White sat out of practice on Wednesday. He has been bothered by hamstring and ankle injuries for much of the season.

White sustained an ankle injury in the preseason and hasn't been right all year. He has a paltry 14 catches in five games to go with a career-low 9.2 yards per catch.

It probably makes the most sense just to hold him out of the lineup. White hasn't missed a single game in his career, so while it might be a little unusual, it's almost a bit necessary since he's looked like a shell of himself this season.

Fantasy impact: The Falcons could be rolling with a receiving trio of Harry Douglas, Drew Davis and Kevin Cone, which is a far cry from White and Julio Jones. Matt Ryan could have a tough time trying to get it going against a tough Tampa Bay secondary. Douglas is a high-upside WR3 in most leagues while the others aren't really worth starting with their lack of experience. As for White, his owners have to stick with him.
