James White a Rock-Solid Fantasy RB1… and not just in PPR

Fresh off catching 10-of-14 targets for 77 yards and a TD versus the Colts, Patriots RB James White continues to dominate in real-life and fantasy. Especially considering this outburst came even with Julian Edelman back, White’s locked up perhaps the highest-volume, highest floor role in this New England juggernaut.

Since Week 4 — the first after Tom “God” Brady called for more White, and the offense’s first without Rex Burkhead — White has logged an insane 24 targets, hauling in 18 of them for 145 yards and 2 scores (plus another 44 + TD on the ground). This equates to 45.9 FPs in this short-span, one that fellow RB Sony Michel has also dominated, and none of it feels unsustainable. 

Though I was +24 spots higher on James White than the experts and raved about him as a “Penny Stock” this Summer, I was far too low still. Originally, I expected just a 4-Week rental during Edelman’s absence, but his continued usage and massive production suggest this is only the beginning. White hasn’t dipped below 11.9 FPs (versus JAX), and clearly comes with both a high-floor and high-ceiling.

Simply put: there’s no one else I’d rather own in New England… Rob Gronkowski included. He’s a true season-changer for his Round 10+ Price Tag, and White is an early favorite for the Top Draft Day Bargain Roto Award. White is a true RB1 in all formats, and has risen all the way to No.25 on my latest Season Long Big Board.
