New England Patriots running back James White won’t play in Week 3 against the Raiders, per NESN’s Zach Cox. White’s parents were involved in a horrible car accident last Sunday and our thought are with him and his family.

With White out, Rex Burkhead filled his spot in the offense against the Seahawks last week and caught 4-of-6 passes for 46 yards. He has some appeal in deeper PPR leagues against a weak Raiders defense.
