For many fantasy owners, the status of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was of paramount importance. He suffered a knee injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and didn’t practice save for some limited participation on Wednesday. He was officially listed as questionable against the Ravens but when it was announced he was going to play, you just knew he had to be in your lineup.
White continues his insane season with nine catches for 74 yards and one touchdown. He has been able to do just about anything he wants against the Ravens secondary. Obviously, when healthy, White is a must-start but this performance is a very encouraging sign that the knee is now an afterthought.
The Falcons have had only consistent weapon all season and the Ravens still can’t stop him. With half the fourth quarter still to play, White could be in for another 100-yard game against a Ravens’ defense that has struggled mightily in this one.
