New York Jets
2021 Fantasy Outlook
White will compete with second-year man James Morgan for the backup job behind rookie second overall pick Zach Wilson, who's expected to become the Jets' starting quarterback right out of the gate. The 26-year-old White spent last season on New York's practice squad and is yet to appear in a regular-season NFL game. Read Past Outlooks

One scintillating start, three duds
QBNew York Jets
January 14, 2022
White made four appearances (three starts) in 2021, completing 88 of 132 passes for 953 yards, five touchdowns and eight interceptions.
ANALYSIS
White had never gotten into a regular-season game before the 2021 season, but the 26-year-old quarterback took the league by storm in his first NFL start, throwing for 405 yards and three touchdowns in a Week 8 upset win over the Bengals. Unfortunately for White, he was unable to replicate that success in any of his other outings, quickly putting an end to the brief quarterback controversy for the Jets. Zach Wilson is the clear quarterback of the future for the franchise after being selected second overall in the 2021 NFL Entry Draft, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the Jets bring back White -- who is a restricted free agent -- to serve as Wilson's backup again next season.

White failed to see the field as a rookie in 2018, and the Western Kentucky product will once again battle Cooper Rush in camp for the No. 2 QB spot behind Dak Prescott.
Drafted in the fifth round out of Western Kentucky, White will compete with second-year quarterback Cooper Rush for the backup spot behind Dak Prescott. White arguably has more arm strength and physical upside than Rush, but a season spent on the practice squad isn't out of the question.
