New England Patriots' running back amassed 68 yards on 13 touches against Kansas City in Week 1. What It Means: White rushed for 38 yards on 10 carries and caught three balls for 30 more last Thursday night. Week 2 sees the Pats head to New Orleans to face a Saints' defense that was touched up for 29 points and 470 total yards against Minnesota in Week 1. Our models project White as the 38th-best running back option in Week 2. We have him pegged for 7.5 FanDuel points with 13.9 rushing yards, 25.9 receiving yards, 0.1 rushing touchdowns and 0.2 receiving touchdowns. He...

For San Diegan Alex Smith, trade changed luck from bad to good

Patriots' James White looks to build on Week 1 performance

Drew Brees’ history vs. Patriots dates back to 2002

Sunday will mark Drew Brees’ fifth regular-season encounter with New England. On Sept. 29, 2002 at Qualcomm Stadium, Drew Brees crossed paths with the New England Patriots for the first time. Brees, a second-round pick the year prior out of Purdue, handed the ball off to eventual Hall of Fame inductee LaDainian Tomlinson 27 times for 217 yards and two touchdowns that afternoon. And he needed to deliver passes to only four targets – Tomlinson, Curtis Conway, Tim Dwight and Fred McCrary – to log a 21-14 victory in just his fourth start. Tom Brady, meanwhile, hucked the ball 53 times in...

Melvin Gordon sees 23 touches, finds end zone in Chargers' loss

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon rushed 18 times for 54 yards and caught 5-of-6 passes for 25 yards with a receiving touchdown on Monday night in a 24-21 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 1. What It Means: Two plays in the first quarter (21-yard run on his first touch, 11-yard receiving score) accounted for 32 of Gordon's 79 offensive yards on Monday, but he averaged only 2.2 yards on his other 21 touches. Despite the inefficient production, it's clear that new Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn intends to use Gordon as a true workhorse out of the backfield. He's...

Frank Gore could pass Jerome Bettis, Eric Dickerson, LaDainian Tomlinson in career rushing yards this year

Colts running back Frank Gore needs just 620 rushing yards to move into 5th all-time, which would vault him past Hall of Famers Jerome Bettis, Eric Dickerson and LaDainian Tomlinson. What It Means: If Gore does indeed move into 5th place in all-time career rushing yards this season, he'll trail only Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders and Curtis Martin. A third-round pick back in 2005, Gore has rushed for at least 600 yards in every season of his 12-year NFL career with the 49ers and Colts. Even at 34 years old, we project the veteran running back to put up 748.0 yards...
