New England Patriots RB James White is focused on improving his game, he said Thursday, May 2. 'Even though you have some success, there's still plenty of mistakes that you make out there,' White said. 'So there's always room for improvement, always ways to get better, always more yards to get. So you get in with the coaches, see what you can improve and find ways to get better. Whether it's running better routes, having no drops or having better run reads, there's always a little bit of things you can improve on.'
Huddle Up: White is coming off a huge season, hitting career highs with 1,176 yards and 12 TDs and finishing seventh among fantasy backs in PPR formats. Second-year RB Sony Michel, though, figures to be healthier and the Pats did spend a third-round pick on Alabama's Damien Harris, so don't be surprised if White slips a bit and finishes as a low-end RB2.

New England Patriots RB James White rushed twice for four yards and caught one pass for five yards in a 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.
Huddle Up: After catching 15 passes in the division round, White wasn't part of the game plan in the Super Bowl. New England backs can be notoriously frustrating for fantasy owners, but White's role in the passing game should keep him in the flex conversation in PPR formats in 2019.

New England Patriots RB James White rushed six times for 23 yards and caught four of his six targets for 49 yards in a 37-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: It was a relatively quiet game for White, but you only need to look back one week at his 15-catch performance against the Los Angeles Chargers for a reminder of the type of production he is capable of providing.

Huddle Up: White has been one of the top running backs in point-per-reception leagues this season and will continue to be a main option in the passing game for the Patriots. He should be a No. 2 running back or flex option in all leagues next week.

New England RB James White needs to get the ball more often, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Tuesday, Dec. 18. In games when White has had at least 13 rushing attempts/targets this season, the Patriots are 9-0 and 0-5 when he's had 12 or fewer.
Huddle Up: White has had two of his three worst rushes/targets games (eight and nine) of the season the last two weeks as the Pats fell at Miami and Pittsburgh, but expect more work out of White and the N.E. RBs with the Patriots heavy home favorites the next two Sundays against the Bills and Jets.

New England Patriots RB James White finished with two runs for 12 yards in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he had five receptions for 25 yards on seven targets.
Huddle Up: With Sony Michel healthy, White has been taking a backseat and his fantasy upside is rather limited. He should only be relied upon as a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 against the Bills.
