News: 4 days agoWhite (hip) finished the 2021 season with 10 carries for 38 yards and a rushing touchdown to go along with 12 catches (on 14 targets) for 94 yards in three games.

Spin: White opened the season in his usual change-of-pace role, but a hip subluxation that the running back suffered in Week 3 landed him on IR. The 2014 fourth-rounder, who turns 30 on Feb. 3, is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason after having signed a one-year deal with the Patriots last March. Brandon Bolden, who absorbed a large portion of White's expected workload this past season, is also a pending unrestricted free agent, so it remains to be seen who will be joining New England's top early-down options Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson in the team's 2022 backfield, but it's plausible that White will be brought back to reclaim a complementary role, provided he fully recovers from his hip issue.

ESPN Fantasy Projection: The 2020 season was White's first without Tom Brady and, not coincidentally, it resulted in his worst fantasy finish (42nd) since a 2014 rookie campaign in which he touched the ball 14 times. Despite the dud, White quietly ranked fourth at RB with a 16% target share (4.4 per game) and has been at or above 16% each of the past three seasons. He's finished no lower than 11th at RB in targets, receptions and receiving yards each of the past five seasons, but had 35 carries in 2020 and has never cleared 95 in a single season. The 29-year-old will defer nearly all rushing work to Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson, but his huge receiving role keeps him in the deep league PPR flex discussion.
