49ers promote Kevin White to active roster on Thursday

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Kevin White was promoted to the active roster on Thursday.

What It Means:

White should see playing time in Week 9's matchup against the Green Bay Packers after the team was forced to place Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne on the COVID-19 reserve list.

In a tough matchup against a Packers' defense ranked seventh in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers, our models project White to haul in 2.6 receptions for 37.2 yards on 4.9 targets.
