Kevin White will debut for the Chicago Bears following injury, we break down his fantasy outlook.

Chicago Bears 2015 first round draft pick Kevin White will make his NFL debut Week 1 against the Houston Texans. After missing all of last season with a leg injury and dealing with a hamstring injury during the preseason, White has officially been listed as active.

Playing opposite Alshon Jeffery, Kevin White will get his fair share of opportunities to catch passes from Jay Cutler. It remains to be seen how White will adjust to the NFL game after missing his entire rookie campaign but Week 1 against the Texans will be his first test in regular season game action.

Fantasy Outlook: After missing his rookie season due to injury, Kevin White will make his debut for the Chicago Bears. Fantasy owners should be wary of starting him right out of the gate for Week 1. Coming off of a season long leg injury and a preseason hamstring issue, White should be eased into the lineup early in the season. Owners should monitor his progress early this year and view White as a possible WR2 or Flex option as the year progresses.
