Rachaad White benefiting from receiving boost

Rachaad White's fantasy scoring got a boost from a pair of rushing TDs in last Sunday's loss to the Texans, just his second and third TD runs of the year. But a rise in receiving over the past three weeks has steadied his fantasy contributions. White's 10.5% target share over the first five games has increased to 14.9% over the past three. That has pushed him from 3.2 receptions and 19.6 yards per game over the first span to 5.7 catches and 60.3 yards over the past three. We can't expect White to continue his 100% catch rate of the more recent span. But increased passing-game usage is obviously a big plus -- especially when you consider that it has come during a time that included returning RB Chase Edmonds from IR. We'll certainly keep watching to see if the upturn holds. But it makes White a much easier fantasy start (especially in PPR) than he was earlier this season.
