Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 2
White rushed 5 times for 20 yards and 1 TD in the Patriots' Week 2 win over the Jets, adding 6 catches for 45 yards on 6 targets.
White got the Patriots on the board with a rushing TD in the first quarter. It appeared as if White was going to dominate the Patriots backfield in touches, but then they got back to feeding Damien Harris as the game went on.
White is the Patriots' most trusted back and figures to play around half of the snaps, including all of the passing down work.
White is valuable in PPR leagues as a flex option as he should continue to get 5 or 6 targets per game.
Week 1
White tied for the team lead with 6 catches and tied for 2nd with 7 targets in Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins. He carried just 4 times for 12 yards and doesn’t project for more rushing work than that going forward. But White is going to be a useful piece in PPR leagues this season, especially when bye weeks start to hit. Next up is a favorable tilt against the Jets.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • After posing 87 catches in 2018 and 72 in 2019, White managed only 49 receptions in 2020. -He played 14 games, missing 2 because of a death in his family.
  • White handled a strong 14.7% target share. But he was hurt by a run-heavy Pats offense with Cam Newton. The team totaled only 440 pass attempts.
  • Rex Burkhead, now a Texan, missed 6 games. Sony Michel missed 7.
  • White remained a limited ball-carrier, though. He never topped 5 rush attempts in a game.
  • He matched rookie J.J. Taylor in red zone carries (4).
  • White’s exceeded 2 rushing scores just once in 7 seasons.
  • White re-signed with the Patriots in March to a 1-year, $2.5 million deal.
  • The Pats spent the 15th overall pick on Alabama QB Mac Jones. He’d project as an instant passing upgrade for this unit, but we expect Newton to open the year under center.
  • New England bolstered the pass catching corps with Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne. They added Oklahoma RB Rhomondre Stevenson in Round 4 of the ’21 draft, but he’s not a threat to White’s pass catching role.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

White was dragged down by a poor Patriots offense in 2020. Year 1 without Tom Brady turned up only 5 games with double-digit PPR points. He finished outside the top-40 in PPR points per game.

Even if he bounces back slightly, there’s no ceiling to chase here.

Patriots RB James White is expected to miss the rest of the season with his hip injury, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's a significant loss, as White had racked up 13 targets through the first 2 weeks of the season. We're intrigued to see who steps into the all-important pass-catching back role for the Patriots. It was special-teamer Brandon Bolden after White exited last week.

Patriots RB James White is "out indefinitely" after suffering a hip subluxation in Sunday's loss to the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's the same injury Washington QB Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered in Week 1. We'll look for a more concrete timetable for White's return, but it sounds like he's at least headed to short-term IR. White is droppable in shallower fantasy leagues. Brandon Bolden stepped in as New England's lead passing-down back in Week 3, but we'll see what the Patriots do this coming week. RB Damien Harris could pick up more passing-game work -- or New England could use a bit more of RBs J.J. Taylor or Rhamondre Stevenson.

Patriots RB James White was carted off the field in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Saints. He was announced with a hip injury and ruled out for the rest of the game. We'll update White's status when we know more.

RB James White is expected to re-sign with the Patriots, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. We'll see what the contract looks like, but it seems like White was met with a cool market. The 29-year-old caught just 35 balls last year -- his fewest since 2015 -- in his first season without QB Tom Brady. White should remain New England's lead pass-catching back in 2021, but a run-heavy offense under QB Cam Newton would make it tough to White to find enough volume to be a real fantasy factor.

Update: White signed a 1-year, $2.5 million deal with the Pats.

Patriots RB James White practiced on Wednesday. He's missed the past 2 games after his parents were in an accident, killing his father and leaving his mother in critical condition. White will presumably play against the Chiefs this weekend. His return takes a bite out of RB Rex Burkhead's appeal.
