Roddy White injury: Falcons WR questionable, should play for fantasy owners

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is questionable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is listed as questionable heading into the team's Week 10 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. White is dealing with ankle and hamstring injuries, and has missed three consecutive games due to the injuries.

White sustained the high ankle sprain before the start of the regular season, but rather than give it time to heal up, he played in every game and was largely ineffective. He was slow, and the team used him as a decoy. It was a pretty disappointing time for fantasy owners. Then, in Week 5, he injured his hamstring and the team forced him into inactivity.

He's been at practice all three days this week and should make his return, however. It's unclear how healthy he is, though.

Fantasy Impact: White does not have and should not have the confidence of fantasy owners. Even if he plays, he might not be healthy and could just be another decoy to take Seahawks corner Richard Sherman off the rest of the depleted group of receivers. He should ride the bench until he shows he can actually run at full speed and make cuts, if you haven't released him.
