Draft note
by John Paulsen
White finished as the No. 7 running back in PPR formats and No. 11 in standard yet he’s going significantly later in fantasy drafts. With Rob Gronkowski and Chris Hogan retired/gone, there should still be a sizable role for White in the passing game. White’s numbers did take a dip when Rex Burkhead was available, but White should continue to lead this backfield in receptions.

NE RB James White - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at New York Jets
James White had nine receptions on nine targets in Week 6, and those receptions along with his 46 receiving yards made him the RB30 for the week. White is nothing if not consistent in fantasy, finishing between RB22 and RB30 every week this season in 0.5 PPR scoring formats. White has the highest target rate on the Patriots roster at 25.8%, which is what gives him such a solid floor week-to-week. This remains true in the red zone, as White's nine red-zone targets are tied for the most in the NFL, while White has just one touchdown. It's just a matter of time before positive reversion to the mean results in some RB1 weeks for White.

The Patriots travel to New Jersey to face the New York Jets in Week 7, and while they've allowed just 23.0 aFPA to running backs overall, the 13th-lowest figure, they've been somewhat more vulnerable to pass-catching running backs. The Jets have allowed the 15th-most receptions and 14th-most receiving yards to the position, while allowing the eighth-fewest rushing yards. The return of linebacker C.J. Mosley could lower White's ceiling, but starting him as anything more than an RB3 is a bet on him scoring a touchdown.
