Roddy White sits out of practice for the Falcons, fantasy owners might want to look elsewhere this week

Kevin C. Cox

Roddy White still isn't all the way back from his injuries and it looks like Harry Douglas will be busy. We break down the fantasy implications.

Falcons wide receiver Roddy White did not practice on Wednesday due to his hamstring and ankle injuries. He could be sitting in his second game of his career on Sunday in Arizona.

The Falcons didn't really miss him on Sunday thanks to Harry Douglas going off against the Buccaneers to the tune of 149 yards and one score on seven catches. White was off to a terrible start to his season and has accumulated just 14 catches for 129 yards and no TDs. Yeah, that's 12 points on the season, which White fantasy owners usually expect in one game.

The Cardinals do have a decent defense, but the Falcons might just opt to sit the perennial Pro Bowl player. Outside of Douglas, Drew Davis saw most of the snaps on the other side.

Fantasy impact: Obviously, White owners can't abandon ship yet and he could be back soon. What's more, now that Julio Jones is out for the year, White could step into a bigger role. If White's owner is hurting in the standings, it might be savvy to float a buy-low offer out there. Harry Douglas is a strong start once again even against Patrick Peterson.
