Roddy White still bothered by ankle, but should continue producing for fantasy owners

Roddy White says the ankle still bothers him, but he plans to keep playing through it. We break down the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White admitted that he's still bothered by the ankle injury that's been bothering him all season.

White's 2013 season has been derailed by ankle and hamstring injuries. He suffered a high ankle sprain in the preseason but tried to play through it. His production suffered before being shut down for three games. White came back in a big way in the Falcons' win over the Buffalo Bills, grabbing 10 catches for 143 yards. He is expected to continue to play despite not being 100 percent.

Fantasy impact: If White is still bothered by the ankle, he sure didn't look like it on Sunday, his best performance of the season. At worst, he might be limited in practice this week, but the Falcons have given no indication of shutting him down despite a lost season. White is Matt Ryan's best receiving weapon left and will be back on the WR3 radar for the fantasy playoffs. He has a good matchup against a reeling Packers team.
