Patriots extend RB James White for three years

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Super-Bowl hero James White and Patriots reached agreement on 3-year extension, tying him to New England for 4 years, per league source.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rex Burkhead and Dion Lewis are signed through 2017, so White gives the team some long-term stability at the position if one or both were to walk next spring. White is more of a receiver than a runner, so his value is enhanced in PPR formats. If the Patriots are able to wrestle Mike Gillislee away from the Bills, this is going to be a very tough backfield to predict on a weekly basis.
