Fantasy owners will still have to pay attention to Roddy White's ankle

Kevin C. Cox

Roddy White doesn't practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Falcons receiver Roddy White (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He was banged up last week and missed some practice time. The former Pro Bowler did play against the Rams on Sunday and put up three catches for 21 yards.

He missed most of the preseason with an ankle sprain and it could be a while before he's back to 100 percent. White also caught just two balls for 19 yards in the opener against the Saints.

Fantasy impact: There's no doubt that fantasy owners can't be happy with Roddy. He is regularly among the league leaders in catches and he hasn't missed any games since being drafting in 2005. Although, all those catches have led to a lot of wear and tear, so this could be the year his luck runs out with durability. The Falcons are likely going to play him in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, which means White is not someone that should be benched. Harry Douglas makes plenty of sense as an insurance policy, though.
