Falcons WR Roddy White is active for tonight's game and is expected to be in the Atlanta starting lineup.

White, who is among the league leaders in receptions and yards, suffered a knee injury in the first quarter of the team's Week Nine win over the Buccaneers. He attempted to play following halftime but could not go at full speed. The receiver didn't practice on Tuesday and was limited on Wednesday, but he will try to give it a go vs. the Ravens.

The way we see it

White is one of the league's top receivers and he will be going up against one of the league's premier defenses. If head coach Mike Smith could have planned it, he likely would have chosen a different time for a short week, but this is the hand his team has been dealt.

Fantasy Spin

If White is on your team, he should be in the lineup. Though the knee injury is a cause for concern, if the team feels he is healthy enough to play, he will likely see passes thrown in his direction.
