Roddy White WR ATL 3 Days
Roddy White played on 85-of-88 snaps in last week's win over the Bills.
White claims his ankle still isn't quite 100 percent, but tangible evidence from Week 13 suggests otherwise. He played on nearly every snap, recording a 10/143/0 line on 14 targets while consistently cutting sharply out of breaks. White is not listed on the injury report this week and will be a WR3 with upside against the Packers Sunday.

Speaking after Sunday's win, Roddy White said that his ankle is still an issue, but that he's a "football player."
White did not suffer a setback, but let it be known he's still not 100 percent despite his 10-catch, 143-yard performance. "So I'm going to get myself out there and fight with my teammates every week, if I can," White said. "If I feel like I can go out there and be productive, I'm going to go out there and help my team win." Despite White's comments, he looked by far the best he has all year, and can be trusted as a high-upside WR3 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Roddy White was held to two catches for 24 yards in Atlanta's Week 12 loss to the Saints.
White's fantasy owners thought he was in the clear after getting through the Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis portion of his schedule, but he had major issues with Keenan Lewis this evening. White now has just six catches for 80 yards in three games since rejoining the Falcons' lineup. His myriad injuries obviously have something to do with it, but he's simply not the same player he was in 2007-12. White will look to get on track against the Bills' burnable secondary in Week 13.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Falcons and Roddy White expect to agree to a "reasonable extension" this offseason.
Going into the final year of his contract, White is due to make $5 million in 2014, and sport a $6.3 million cap number. The Falcons could lower the latter with a 2-3 year extension, and likely get away without guaranteeing any money in 2015. That would require a fair signing bonus, however. Suffering through his worst season since 2006, White turned 32 earlier this month.

Roddy White caught three balls for 36 yards and a touchdown in Atlanta's Week 11 loss to Tampa Bay.
Shut down all day by Darrelle Revis, White's fantasy day was saved by a fourth-quarter touchdown from six yards out. White will be a better fantasy bet on Thursday Night Football against the Saints in Week 12, although owners shouldn't underestimate the emerging shutdown coverage of New Orleans CB Keenan Lewis.

Roddy White (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.
It's far from ideal for White to be missing practice time with yet another new injury, but there's been no indication his Week 11 status is in doubt. Even if he's listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, White should be expected to start against Darrelle Revis and the Bucs.

Roddy White (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
White played the entire game in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, so the Falcons are likely just limiting him for precautionary reasons. He'll be a risky WR3/FLEX option against Darrelle Revis and the Bucs in Week 11.

Coach Mike Smith said Roddy White's 55 snaps in Week 10 were the "upper limit" on what the Falcons want him to play.
The Falcons only got 58 snaps off against the Seahawks, but they'll typcially run between 65 and 70. So Roddy will take about 10-15 snaps off to manage his ankle and hamstring issues. It's not a real concern for his value, especially since he came out of his return healthy. "I felt pretty good," he said. "It was the best I felt all season. That was good, just giving me a lot of confidence going into the next couple weeks that I can get out there and get going and get back to being myself again." White figures to see Darrelle Revis on Sunday, but has plus matchups after that.

Roddy White played on 56-of-58 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.
White's box score was disappointing as he managed just one catch for 20 yards on four targets. But it's encouraging that he was not a mere decoy as he was early in the season when he played limited snaps to manage his injuries. White appears healthy and now just needs some good matchups to resume production. He won't get that against Darrelle Revis in Week 11, but the Week 12-15 schedule looks like this: vs. Saints, at Bills, at Packers, vs. Redskins. Roddy should be a target monster with Julio Jones (foot) out for the season and Tony Gonzalez (toe) hobbled.
