The way Roddy White's playing, it's no surprise he's the No. 1-ranked receiver in the league according to Football Outsiders.
The longtime veteran is second on the team in catches with 37, leads the team in receiving yards and yards per catch average with 553 and 14.9, respectively, and his stat of four receiving touchdowns is tied for most on offense.
White is on pace to set new career-highs in multiple categories and continues to be one of Matt Ryan's biggest offensive weapons.
White's most valuable role has been catching the short passes, but he has also proved to be surprisingly valuable in another area: down the field.
He may have been relegated to primarily be the team's possession receiver, but White showed he can still be a deep threat after catching longs of 49 and 59 yards against the Panthers, both of which were crucial in helping lead the Falcons to victory.
While that doesn't figure to become the norm, there's no denying White's dominance through the first six games of the season.
