At least if you have Roddy White on your fantasy football team, you're getting straight talk from one of your best players.

White, the Atlanta Falcons' Pro Bowl wide receiver, caught only two passes for 19 yards Sunday in a season-opening 23-17 loss at New Orleans.

On Monday, the James Island High School graduate sent a message to fantasy owners via his @RoddyWhiteTV Twitter account: “As far as fantasy if I don't participate in practice than don't start me it's a red flag”

White was hampered last week and during the preseason with a sprained ankle.

The Falcons play host to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Keep an eye on White's practice status.
