Patriots RB James White struggles in first preseason game

James White, the rookie running back out of Wisconsin, has been the most talked about player in Patriot's training camp. He's been receiving goal-line carries, plenty of touches and has shown tremendous potential. In Thursday's preseason opener White came off the bench behind veteran Steven Ridley. He failed to impress anyone rushing four times for nine yards. Although underperforming in a single preseason game isn't the most favorable option for White, the Patriot's staff has their eye on him.

Fantasy Analysis:

Being a running back on the Patriots is not an easy task. Head coach Bill Belichick does not tolerate fumbles or turnovers. These are two things that Ridley seemingly loved to do in 2013, causing him to be benched in favor of Shane Vereen @ShaneVereen34. If Ridley continues to struggle holding onto the ball this season, White seemingly has the upper hand in replacing him. White is a late-round flyer that could potentially become a starter later in the season. If you can afford the roster space and are looking for a running back with a possibility of being placed into a starting role, White is your guy.
