Roddy White wants to perform better for his fantasy owners
Roddy White had a good day in the Falcons’ season-opening 40-24 win over the Chiefs, but he wasn’t the team’s top-producing receiver. That honor went to Julio Jones, who combined with Matt Ryan for a big game — 6 catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns.
Although White had 6 catches for 87 yards, he was disappointed with his final stat line and had his fantasy owners in mind after the game:
Fantasy owners got to get y’all some more points

You may recall that White apologized to his fantasy owners after an 8-catch, 61-yard performance in last year’s season opener, and promised to make it up to them the following week. White did have a touchdown catch the following week, but hardly any yards. It took him til the end of the season to start blowing up — he had 4 100-yard games in the final two months and 5 touchdowns — so owners are hoping it doesn’t take him as long to blow up this year. Still, if he’s expecting bigger things than an 87-yard game, that’s a great sign for fantasy players.
