Roddy White limited in practice Thursday, continues to frustrate fantasy owners

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Roddy White was limited in practice once again. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was limited in practice on Thursday. It's the Falcons first practice of the week as they play on Monday night in Week 5 against the New York Jets.

White is slowly recovering from a high ankle sprain. He's been gutting it out this season, not missing a game, but has never been right. White played his highest number of snaps in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons, but managed just three catches for 28 yards. He has only 10 catches, 84 yards and zero touchdowns on the season.

Fantasy impact: There are reasons to be optimistic about White. The Falcons have a bye in Week 6, which would give his ankle some much-needed rest, and his high snap count in Week 4 should be encouraging. That said, he remains a huge fantasy gamble until he can at least get some full practices in. He might see some opportunities this week with Antonio Cromartie covering Julio Jones, but White remains a massive dice roll.
