New England Patriots impending free-agent RB James White's 375 receiving yards in 2020 were the fewest since his rookie season when he appeared in three games, and his 49 receptions and 62 targets were his lowest totals since 2014.
Huddle Up: White has been a steady presence in the New England passing attack throughout his career, but he was largely an afterthought in the Cam Newton-led offense. His days as a PPR asset could be numbered, and at the very least, fantasy owners need to see where White is playing and who is throwing him the football before drafting him in 2021.

New England Patriots RB James White rushed twice for three yards in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins and he added four receptions for 52 yards on his four targets.
Huddle Up: White's total scrimmage yards were OK, especially for those in deeper PPR leagues. However, a total of six touches simply will not do. He cannot be trusted outside of deeper leagues heading into Week 16 against the Bills on Monday night.

New England Patriots RB James White (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: White probably will be in uniform for the game and will see a handful of touches against the Miami Dolphins. He has not been a great fantasy option over the last few weeks and can be avoided again this week.

New England Patriots RB James White carried the ball three times for 16 yards on Thursday, Dec. 10, against the Los Angeles Rams. He added one reception for two yards.
Huddle Up: White gained 83 yards in Week 11 and scored twice in Week 12, providing some smidgen of hope that the longtime Brady favorite was regaining his footing in the 2020 version of New England's offense. It was merely a fool's hope, however, as White has 19 total yards over the last two games combined. You can't rely on White the rest of the way.

New England Patriots RB James White was good for five carries, 18 yards and two touchdowns in Week 12 against the Arizona Cardinals while adding one reception for minus-1 yard on his only target.
Huddle Up: The two rushing touchdowns were nice, well, nice if you weren't a Damien Harris fantasy owner, but the total touches and yardage total was weak. He remains more of a low-end RB3 in PPR leagues with lesser appeal in standard play heading into Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

New England Patriots RB James White caught six passes for 64 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 11. He also rushed for 19 yards on five carries during the game.
Huddle Up: White was not a big factor in the offense over the past month, but his 64 receiving yards were his second most of the season. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues when he has a solid role in the passing game.

New England Patriots RB James White had two receptions for eight yards against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Nov. 15.
Huddle Up: Does anyone miss Tom Brady more than White? One of the pre-eminent receivers out of the backfield for years alongside Brady, White has a grand total of 70 yards of offense in his last four games combined. At this point there's no compelling reason to keep White on your roster.
