Roddy White barely putting up a fight for fantasy owners

Mike Ehrmann

The Falcons' four-time Pro Bowl receiver came up empty by his standards in a Week 3 loss to the Dolphins. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White caught just two passes for 16 yards in a 27-23 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 3. The nine-year veteran is averaging a minuscule 18.6 yards per game so far this season.

Fantasy impact: White's early-season fantasy performance has to make his owners wonder whether the high ankle sprain is playing through is bothering him a bit too much. To put his current pace in perspective, last year White finished with 92 catches for 1,352 yards and seven touchdowns. It looks like the bulk of the Falcons' receiving yards will have to come from Julio Jones for now. At this point White's fantasy owners have no choice but to hold on to him until he gets healthy, as he won't yield much in a trade and is clearly too good when healthy to consider releasing outright.
