White suffered a sprained ankle in the second preseason game, but he's expected to play in Sunday's opener against the New Orleans Saints. He returned to practice on Wednesday and got a full week in. White himself says that he'll be ready to play.

Fantasy impact: The Falcons are just being cautious with the 31-year-old veteran. White hasn't missed a single game in his eight-year career, and don't expect that to change this week. Keep an eye on Sunday's inactive report, though, in case he has a setback with the ankle.

White is in line for another year of WR1 production even if Julio Jones overtakes him as Atlanta's leading receiver. He has a great fantasy matchup against the Saints porous defense this week in a game that could be a shootout. White is a safe play in all fantasy formats.
