Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is questionable for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. He's dealing with hamstring and ankle injuries, but it sounds like he'll play. On Friday, he told reporters "with a smile" that he'll be a game-time decision on Sunday.
White missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was with the team on Friday. He's been injured all season, starting with the high ankle sprain in the preseason that he played through. It's unclear if that injury contributed to him injuring his hamstring in Week 5, but White stopped "playing through it" after that point.
It was a smart move, as he was totally ineffective playing with the ankle injury. He was used a decoy, which might have worked to an extent, but he didn't help the team much beyond that. It's unlikely he's 100 percent at this point, but it does seem as though he will play.
Fantasy Impact: White has been disappointing this season, with just 14 receptions for 129 yards, with no touchdowns. In seasons past, White has been a WR1 and has won many a game for fantasy owners. The chances of him doing that even if he does play on Sunday are ... remote. White has not been effective and fantasy owners should not depend on him until he shows otherwise.
