Patriots | Three Patriots RBs split snaps evenly

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 16:22:57 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount received 27 snaps during the team's Week 12 game, while RB James White received 26 snaps and RB Dion Lewis received 23 snaps. The Patriots ran three plays with White and Lewis on the field at the same time.

Fantasy Tip: Blount received the most carries against the New York Jets and probably will continue to be the main running option moving forward. Lewis received six carries and caught four passes, while White caught four passes and received zero carries. Blount should be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues but will not be as valuable in point-per-reception leagues. Lewis and White should be flex options for most owners.

Patriots | James White scores in Frisco

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 22:23:36 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White did not have any rushes in the Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers, but he added six receptions for 63 yards with a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: White is worth a look as a flex fantasy play in deeper PPR formats heading into Week 12 against the New York Jets. Over the coming weeks he will be battling the healthy Dion Lewis for touches behind LeGarrette Blount.

Patriots | Six touches for James White

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 22:31:01 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White rushed twice for five yards in the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks and he added four receptions for 32 yards on his four targets.

Fantasy Tip: White has a little upside, especially for fantasy owners in PPR leagues, but for now he is only worth using in deeper leagues heading into Week 11 at San Francisco.

Patriots | James White's role in offense secure

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 10:44:15 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White is a "good player" and "it would take somebody playing pretty good to be better than him", according to head coach Bill Belichick. "What he does is good. Could somebody do it better? I don't know. But it would take quite a bit, I would say, based on where he is and how consistent he's been with what he's done," Belichick said.

Fantasy Tip: More Beli-tricks? This topic comes up as a result of the roster decision the team must make with Dion Lewis by Nov. 17. White has improved in 2016, but he remains a league-average talent who can hold his own in the passing game. Lewis proved to be a special talent before his injury last season and is very likely to carve out a role sooner than later if he is healthy. Lewis has league-winning upside, so continue to hold on to him until there is more clarity to this situation.

Patriots | James White finds end zone twice

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 22:24:14 -0700

New England Patriots RB James White ran seven times for just 19 yards in the Week 6 game against the Cincinnati Bengals, but he more than made up for it with eight grabs, 47 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets.

Fantasy Tip: White started the season slow, but he has piled up 17 catches for 160 yards and two scores over the past three games. He has re-emerged as a solid RB2 in all PPR fantasy formats.

Patriots | James White expected to be involved

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 07:35:06 -0700

New England Patriots RB James White is expected to be a steady contributor the rest of the season, in the opinion of beat writer Jeff Howe.

Fantasy Tip: Howe opined that he didn't think White would reduce LeGarrette Blount's carries because Blount is superior between the tackles. White is a flex option in PPR leagues. The problem is you never know how the Patriots will use its backfield any given week.

Patriots | James White outsnaps LeGarrette Blount

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 10:21:25 -0700

New England Patriots RB James White saw 38 snaps to LeGarrette Blount's 31 in a Week 5 win over the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: While Blount was known to be dealing with a hip injury entering the contest, it is also notable the Patriots leaned on White more than their "grind-it-out" back even though they enjoyed a comfortable lead throughout. Hip injury or not, owners should probably expect a similar split until Dion Lewis returns, perhaps as early as two weeks from now. Until then, White should be considered the superior option in PPR formats, while Blount's touchdown upside gives him the edge in standard leagues.

Patriots | James White not producing

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 17:56:29 -0700

New England Patriots RB James White is tied for 14th among running backs with 18 targets so far this year, but he has only managed 13 catches for 104 yards and has yet to score.

Fantasy Tip: It's been all LeGarrette Blount with Tom Brady serving his four-game suspension. White's involvement should increase with Brady's return this week, though, so don't give up on him just yet, at least not in PPR leagues. White will have value as long as Dion Lewis is injured. He's actually a sneaky start in Week 5 versus a Cleveland Browns defense that is one of the 10 worst fantasy defenses against running backs so far in 2016.

Patriots | James White thrives as receiver

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 12:02:20 -0700

New England Patriots RB James White was 18th among running backs last season with 54 targets despite playing in just 12 games. He caught 40 passes for 410 yards and four touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: White should take over as New England's primary pass-catching running back with Dion Lewis out indefinitely, with LeGarrette Blount still serving as the main runner. If White can stay healthy, he has a real chance to reach RB2 totals in PPR formats.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount battling Tyler Gaffney?

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 10:42:01 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount is "likely" battling RB Tyler Gaffney the club's final running back spot. RBs Dion Lewis and James White "appear to be locked in" as the receiving running backs, while RB Brandon Bolden "figures" to have a spot on the roster thanks to his role on special teams. Blount and Gaffney are competing for the "between-the-tackles kind of role."

Fantasy Tip: Due to Blount's proven track record, you have to believe he has the leg up in this competition, though it's also interesting that Gaffney was able to take an entire series worth of carries in the first half of New England's most recent preseason game with the first-team offense. No matter who emerges from this battle, though, they may not hold much fantasy value, given the amount of pieces regularly being used out of the Patriots backfield, as well as Bill Belichick's sometimes unpredictable use of his running backs.
