White missed time last season for the first time in his career. He is suddenly 33 years old and the aging wideout will miss at least one game this fall.

Receptions – 83

Despite all the injuries last season, White still averaged 4.85 receptions per game. He will be much more active this season now that he is healthy again and another 80-catch season seems more than realistic.

Receiving Yards – 1,103

White averaged over 1,100 yards between 2007-12. He will once again be a fixture on the outside, and considering his rapport with QB Matt Ryan, White will have another 1,000-yard campaign in 2014.

Yards Per Catch – 13.3

White’s average will tend to suffer because he is used so much as a possession wideout. He will occasionally get loose for a long bomb, but don’t expect him to average anything close to 15 YPC.

Touchdowns – 8

Before last season’s debacle, White averaged 8.6 touchdowns over the previous five seasons. The veteran knows how to find the end zone and will easily haul in over six TDs in 2014.
