Roddy White frustrates fantasy owners with 45 yards and early exit on Monday night

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Roddy White showed early signs of life versus the Jets, but exited with an apparent hamstring injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Falcons receiver Roddy White continued to work his way back from a high ankle sprain with a modest performance in a 30-28 loss to the Jets on Monday night.

White finished the evening with four catches for 45 yards. He was frequently targeted early in the game, but once the scripted plays ended, White figuratively -- and then literally -- disappeared from the game. After a play where he pushed-off a defender to catch a pass in the fourth quarter, White exited the game with an apparent hamstring injury and did not return.

Fantasy Spin: White is one of the premier possession receivers in the NFL, but he just can't be trusted in fantasy lineups until he proves he is at (or near) full health. Things appeared to be trending upward after he played in 72 of 74 snaps versus the Patriots in Week 4, but he suffered a setback during that game and is now struggling to get back into football shape.

On the season, White has 14 catches for 129 yards through five games and should be stashed on benches in fantasy leagues of all formats. Owners can take solace in the fact that White will have the benefit of the bye week coming up.
