New England Patriots RB James White ran for 12 yards on four carries and added six catches on seven targets for 49 yards in Week 1 versus the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: It's the kind of low-key, double-digit PPR day fantasy managers got used to when Tom Brady was in town. White will rarely ever dazzle the masses or put up gaudy numbers for fantasy purposes, but he's a great fill-in play for managers because he is such a trusty option for quarterbacks who don't mind checking down like Brady and Mac Jones. White figures to be a steady if unspectacular flex option in PPR leagues again in Week 2 against the New York Jets.

Free-agent RB James White (Patriots) is receiving interest from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

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.
