Roddy White (ankle) could be out for the preseason, not major ding to fantasy value

Rob Carr

Roddy White could miss the rest of the preseason with a sprained ankle. We break down the fantasy implications.

Roddy White's ankle injury is believed to be minor and is expected to sit out the rest of the preseason. He sprained it on Thursday night and did not return to the game.

He's been a very, very durable player. White has played in every single game since 2005, which adds up to a whopping 128 games. His ankle should be fine for the regular-season opener and he has plenty of experience with Matt Ryan, so the extra time in preseason would be a bit superfluous.

Fantasy impact: He's fine. White and Julio Jones are arguably the best receiving tandem in the NFL, so they do cancel each other out a bit as ultra-elite fantasy options.

White and Julio should still both be viewed as top-12 receivers in PPR formats and their high-powered offense should negate the fact they will take away targets from one another. Julio's ADP seems justified in the middle of the second round and Roddy going off the board in the late third, early fourth seems fair, too.
