Rachaad White Bio

Rachaad White

Rachaad White attended high school at Center High in Kansas City, Missouri, and was named First Team All-State while totaling over 2,000 yards from scrimmage. Despite his high school accolades and production, he received minimal collegiate offers, and decided to attend Division II Nebraska-Kearney. After just one season there, White transferred to Mt. San Antonio in California. White played only one season at Mt. SAC, accruing 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns before transferring to Arizona State, a Division I university.

Former Mt. SAC linebacker and New York Giants Super Bowl Champion Antonio Pierce recruited White to Arizona State and it paid off for the Sun Devils. In 2020, Arizona State played just four games due to Covid-19, but White exploded onto the scene with 400 yards rushing in those four games, including 158 yards and 2 touchdowns on 13 carries against Oregon State. He also had 133 yards and three touchdowns on 10 carries against Arizona. Fast forward to 2021, when White rushed 182 times for 1,000 yards. He also pulled in 43 receptions that season, to go along with 16 touchdowns.

Rachaad White was selected in the 3rd round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He joined a team led by Tom Brady, and who had just come off a Super Bowl victory. Paired with pass catching back Leonard Fournette, there looked to be limited upside for White in 2022, but he was able to carve out a role for himself. In the second half of the season, he finished with five games as a fantasy RB2 or higher. Despite the struggles of the Buccaneer offensive line, White flashed enough for the team to look to him as their primary back for the 2023 season.

There were some concerns about the odds of White continuing his success, but White absolutely crushed his opposition in 2023. White was an excellent rusher, but what makes him a difference maker for fantasy football is his activity in the pass game. White finished inside the top five in routes run (383), route participation (67.4), yards per reception (8.6), and receiving yards (549). He had 12 weeks where he finished as a top ten running back in fantasy. After only adding Bucky Irving in the fourth round, White appears locked in to the lions share of the snaps at running back again in 2024.
