Roddy White: Don’t start me in fantasy if I don’t practice

Roddy-White-NFC-PreviewAtlanta Flacons wide receiver Roddy White is dealing with a high ankle sprain that he suffered during his team’s second preseason game. The team initially downplayed the injury, but White admitted after Atlanta’s loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday that the injury did indeed hamper him. He also warned his fantasy football owners that they should be careful about starting him.

White was held to just two catches for 19 yards against the Saints. He was basically a non-factor in the passing game, which is something he said his fantasy owners can see coming if he doesn’t practice during the week.

It would stand to reason that White knows his body better than anyone else. Although, plenty of players have made a fantasy impact after not practicing all week — as anyone who has ever owned Hakeem Nicks would tell you.

Roddy has acknowledged his fantasy owners in the past and evenĀ apologized for poor performances. He could be trying to throw off Atlanta’s next opponent — the St. Louis Rams — by getting them to take him lightly, but fantasy owners should probably take his advice if White doesn’t practice much this week. High ankle sprains can be nagging injuries for wide receivers.

The Falcons may not be happy about White tweeting injury updates, but hey, it’s a step up from some of the incredibly idiotic tweets he has sent before.
