Roddy White (ankle) back to practice, safe to start in fantasy

Roddy White still hasn't missed a game. - Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Roddy White's ankle injury has healed and he was back at practice on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Falcons receiver Roddy White (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday. He is expected to play against the Saints on Sunday.

White suffered his ankle injury in the second week of the preseason and he did not return to any action. White has yet to miss a game since being drafted in 2005 and is among the most durable players in the league.

Fantasy impact: There are going to be a lot of points in the game with the Saints. New Orleans allowed the most yards with a ridiculous 440 yards per game and ranked 31st in points allowed. Roddy White may take a bit of a hit now that Julio Jones is nearing full development and he'll have to fight for end-zone targets with White and tight end Tony Gonzalez, but he still should flirt with 100 catches. White is a must-start this week in all formats.
