Latest Updates

 

Harry Douglas has minimal production in Week 17


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Falcons receiver Harry Douglas had a quiet game in Week 17 against the Panthers.

Douglas did have seven catches on nine targets, but he was held to just 58 yards. Douglas has now closed the season with six games in a row without a touchdown.

He will enter 2014 in a prominent role as the No. 3 receiver in Atlanta behind Julio Jones and Roddy White.


Harry Douglas heavily involved Week 16


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Falcons receiver Harry Douglas was targeted nine times in the loss at San Francisco, third on the team behind Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. Douglas caught five passes for 46 yards as he went over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career.

Douglas failed to score for the fifth straight game, and he was held under 50 yards for the third consecutive week. He'll play Carolina in the season finale.


Harry Douglas reverting to pedestrian receiver


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) The Harry Douglas express has slowed. After a seven-game stretch in which he averaged 7.1 receptions for 98.1 yards with two touchdowns, the Falcons receiver has totaled seven catches for 57 scoreless yards the past two weeks. Clearly, Roddy White has regained his status as the No. 1 option.

Douglas' upcoming matchup won't help matters. On Monday night he visits the 49ers, who give up the 4th-fewest Fantasy points to receivers. Consider Douglas a risky flex option at best Week 16.


Harry Douglas' yardage limited again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas, who was limited to 20 yards last week after averaging 98.1 in his previous seven games, had another unproductive afternoon Week 15 against the Redskins. Despite tying for the team lead with seven targets and catching five passes, he had only 37 yards.

Douglas was used mostly underneath, catching two passes of more than 10 yards on a day when the Falcons' longest was only 19. Tight end Tony Gonzalez and wide receiver Roddy White both also had seven targets, with Gonzalez leading the team in both receptions (six) and receiving yards (62).

Douglas will try to make better use of his targets in what figures to be a difficult matchup Week 16 at San Francisco.


Rebound in the works for Harry Douglas?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas had a tough time on a snowy field in Green Bay last week, but even though he caught just two passes for 20 yards -- by far his lowest totals since Julio Jones was lost for the season in Week 5 -- his seven targets were still second-most on the team.

So who had the most? Try Roddy White, who also led the Falcons with eight receptions for 74 yards, outperforming Douglas for the second straight game after playing just a supporting role in the weeks prior. Safe to say his high ankle sprain isn't the impediment it used to be.

Both got more than a dozen targets Week 13 at Buffalo, though, so with the right matchup, the Falcons passing game is capable of sustaining two wide receivers. It has such a matchup Week 15 against the Redskins, who rank 27th against the pass, allowing 256.7 yards per game. True, they've allowed just the 13th-most Fantasy points to wide receivers, but right now, they're in a state of disarray, with unrest at head coach and quarterback. They appeared positively disinterested in a 45-10 loss against the Chiefs last week.

None of Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura rank Douglas among their top 24 wide receivers for this week, but I'd be perfectly content using him in a flex spot, particularly in a points-per-reception league with all the targets he gets out of the slot.


Harry Douglas can't find grip in the cold


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) On a snowy day in Green Bay, Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas was nowhere to be found in the first half of Week 14, going without a target. He was more involved in the passing game in the second half, getting seven targets, but he caught only two of them for 20 yards.

On at least one play, the elements seem to get to him. He had a perfectly thrown pass that would have put the Falcons in position for a game-winning field goal bounce off his hands late in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Matt Ryan threw an interception on the very next play, sealing the team's fate.

Douglas' seven targets were second-most on the team, but there also his fewest in five games. He'll look to bounce back Week 15 against the Redskins.


No reason for Harry Douglas to slow down


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) Even with Roddy White breaking through with 10 catches for 143 yards, Harry Douglas was the Falcons' most targeted wide receiver in Week 13 and came away with six catches for 73 yards himself. It was the sixth time in seven games since Julio Jones was lost for the season with a foot injury that Douglas put up at least 70 yards.

With an even more favorable matchup Week 14 at Green Bay, Douglas figures to continue putting up numbers regardless of what White does. The Packers rank 22nd against the pass, allowing 250.5 yards per game, and have given up the seventh-most Fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all rank Douglas in their top 24 at wide receiver for this week, so in 12-team leagues, he's an advisable start at the position. And even if you can't start him there, you might want to consider clearing out your flex spot for him. By now, his consistency speaks for itself.


Harry Douglas unable to find the end zone Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas was unable to find the end zone Week 13 against the Bills.

Douglas continues to be Matt Ryan’s main target in the receiving game. Ryan targeted Douglas a team-high 15 times, though Douglas came up with just six catches. He gained 73 yards on the day, including a 20-yard screen that put the team in field goal range in overtime. Douglas took a backseat to Roddy White for the first time this season, but he’s still a big weapon in Ryan’s eyes. 

Douglas will take on the Packers Week 14.


Harry Douglas in a good spot Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas is in a good spot Week 13 against the Bills.

Buffalo has had a tough time on pass defense this season, allowing wide receivers to score 27.73 Fantasy points per game. Through 11 games, the team has given up 22 passing touchdowns. Seven wide receivers have broken 100 receiving yards in a game this season against the Bills. The team has been better against the pass lately, allowing just two passing touchdowns in the past three games.

Douglas has been a far bigger threat than Roddy White this season. Since White has returned, he's caught six passes in the past three games. Over that same period, Douglas has caught 22 passes. White may be the number one receiver in name, but Douglas is likely the far better option against the bad Bills pass defense. 


Harry Douglas fails to break out in Week 12


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas was a constant feature of the Falcons passing attack in Week 12 against the Saints, but he was mostly held in check in a 17-13 loss.

Douglas was clearly Matt Ryan's favorite target, as he looked his way 11 times. Douglas hauled in a team-high nine passes, but was held to 79 yards, with a long reception of just 15 yards.

Douglas has emerged as a consistent target this season thanks to injuries, and he is well on his way for his first 1,000-yard season. Douglas enters Week 13 against the Bills with 60 catches for 833 yards and two touchdowns, all of which are career highs. 


Harry Douglas has momentum heading into Week 12


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/20/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas has three games of 100-plus receiving yards in his last five, with two touchdowns and two games of double-digit targets. Week 12 brings a tough matchup against the Saints, who have allowed just one 100-yard receiver all season. 

Douglas should benefit from the presence of Roddy White, who will draw some defensive attention his way, but the Saints -- even with Jabari Greer out for the rest of the season -- are still a formidable pass defense, and a stronger unit than they were when the teams first faced off, in Week 1. 

In that game, Douglas caught four passes for 93 yards. But he had Julio Jones in the lineup to help pull away defenders, as well. 

Douglas is still a solid bet to reach 70-80 yards in Week 12, but that will probably be his ceiling in a tough matchup against New Orleans. 


One big play makes Harry Douglas' day


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas, who burst onto the scene with a seven-catch, 149-yard, touchdown-scoring performance against the Buccaneers in Week 7, had another strong showing Week 11 at the Buccaneers, catching six passes for 134 yards and a touchdown.

He wasn't as consistent from start to finish this time, though. Sure, he tied for the team lead with nine targets, but most of his production came on an 80-yard catch-and-run in the third quarter. With wide receiver Roddy White, who was inactive for the first meeting with the Buccaneers, also getting nine targets, and tight end Tony Gonzalez getting eight, the three may end up having a more even distribution Week 12 against the Saints.


Harry Douglas active for Week 11


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas, who was listed as questionable Friday because of a knee injury, is active for Week 11 at Tampa Bay. He was able to practice in a limited capacity Friday after sitting out Thursday.

Douglas had a career day when the Falcons last faced the Buccaneers in Week 7, catching seven passes for 149 yards and a touchdown.


Harry Douglas questionable Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas is questionable Week 11 against Tampa Bay.

Douglas is dealing with a knee injury, which kept him out of practice Thursday. Douglas was able to practice on a limited basis Friday. He'll be a game-time decision.


Harry Douglas unable to practice Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas was unable to practice Thursday. 

Douglas wasn't listed on the injury report Wednesday, so his absence from practice comes as a surprise. He's dealing with a knee issue. Head coach Mike Smith said he expects Douglas to practice Friday.


Harry Douglas gets Tampa Bay again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/12/2013) When the Falcons last faced the Buccaneers in Week 7, wide receiver Harry Douglas had his coming out party, catching seven passes for 149 yards and a touchdown in the team's first game without star wide receiver Julio Jones. So of course, the big question with the Falcons traveling to Tampa Bay to take on those same Buccaneers in Week 11 is if he can do it again.

The Buccaneers still rank in the middle of the pack against the pass, allowing 237.2 yards per game and giving up the 15th-most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. But remember, Jones wasn't the only top receiver the Falcons were missing in Week 7. Roddy White is back now and, according to coach Mike Smith, "going at game speed."

Of course, White had only one catch for 20 yards in his return against the Seahawks last week, so a role still exists for Douglas. With the return of White complicating the situation, though, Douglas figures to take a step back beyond even what the law of averages would suggest.

He's still a better play than White but is probably best used as a flex option in Fantasy. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all have him outside their top 24 at wide receiver.


Harry Douglas lacking in big plays


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/10/2013) Even with Roddy White back from hamstring and ankle injuries, Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas remained the go-to guy for quarterback Matt Ryan Week 10 against the Seahawks, leading the team in both targets (eight) and receptions (seven).

Few of them amounted to anything, though. With quarterback Matt Ryan unwilling to stretch the field against a defense that entered the day ranked second against the pass, virtually all of Douglas' targets were underneath. If not for a 31-yard catch-and-run in the fourth quarter -- one that ended with him coughing up the football, incidentally -- he wouldn't have had much of anything to show for his catches. As it is, he finished with 49 yards.

Douglas is sure to face competition from White going forward, but he'll continue to play a significant role in the passing game Week 11 at the Buccaneers, the team that gave up 149 yards and a touchdown to him in Week 7.


Harry Douglas an iffy start this week


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/5/2013) Harry Douglas has been nothing but money in Fantasy since taking over as the Falcons' primary wide receiver in Week 7, but he's coming up on a roadblock Week 10 against Seattle. The Seahawks rank second against the pass, allowing 179.8 yards per game, and have given up the third-fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers.

Plus, the Falcons made more of an effort to involve tight end Tony Gonzalez in the passing game last week. Douglas was lucky to get as many yards as he did on only five targets. In Week 10, he may also have to contend with Roddy White, who is nearing a return from hamstring and ankle injuries.

Even if White remains sidelined, Douglas will likely be up against shutdown cornerback Richard Sherman, who helped limit Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson to two catches for 11 yards last week, so it's hard to envision a scenario in which he has a big game. Obviously, if he breaks a long one, all bets are off, but if you have alternatives at wide receiver, you might want to go with them this week. Of the three CBSSports.com Fantasy Football analysts, only Nathan Zegura is willing to rank Douglas higher than 30th at the position.


Harry Douglas comes through on fewer catches


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas, who emerged as quarterback Matt Ryan's favorite target with Julio Jones and Roddy White sidelined in Weeks 7 and 8, took a step back with only three catches on five targets Week 9 at Carolina. But two of those catches were so long -- the Falcons' two biggest plays of the day, in fact -- that Douglas still ended up leading the team with 82 receiving yards.

Tight end Tony Gonzalez, who was routinely double- and triple-teamed in Weeks 7 and 8, was able to get more involved in this one, limiting Douglas' targets. He had six catches for 81 yards.

White returned to practice Friday, which means Douglas could have even more competition for looks Week 10 against the Seahawks. With Jones sidelined, though, he appears to be the Falcons' biggest downfield threat.


Expectations clear for Harry Douglas


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/29/2013) When Harry Douglas first stepped in as the Falcons' No. 1 wide receiver Week 7 against the Buccaneers, nobody really knew what to expect from him. After back-to-back games with more than 100 receiving yards, that's not the case anymore. 

Unfortunately, expectations have come with the Falcons set for their toughest matchup yet. They visit the Panthers in Week 9 -- a team that ranks ninth against the pass, allowing 222.1 yards per game. Having given up only six touchdowns through the air this season, the Panthers are allowing the fifth-fewest Fantasy points per game to wide receivers.

Of course, the Falcons will throw the ball regardless of who they're facing. Douglas' 18 targets last week show how much faith quarterback Matt Ryan has in him, making him a good bet for worthwhile numbers even with the poor matchup. A return for Roddy White could cut into his numbers, but even so, you wouldn't want to bench Douglas with the way he's playing right now.

Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all rank him in their top 16 wide receivers for this week.


Harry Douglas strikes again


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas had another big game Week 8 against the Cardinals.

Douglas was the teams only offensive threat against Arizona. He caught 12 passes on a whopping 18 targets for 121 yards. Douglas was easily Matt Ryan's favorite target. With Roddy White and Julio Jones sidelined with injuries, teams have been double-teaming Tony Gonzalez. That has left Douglas with single coverage the past two games. Douglas should continue to see single-coverage even after White gets back.

Douglas will look to make it three straight 100 yard games Week 9 against the Panthers. 


Harry Douglas looking for repeat performance


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2013) Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas is shooting for a repeat performance Week 8 against the Cardinals.

Douglas is coming off his best game of the season. Against the Buccaneers, Douglas caught seven balls for 149 yards and a touchdown. With Roddy White and Julio Jones out, Douglas was Matt Ryan's primary target. There's a chance White will return Week 8, which could limit Douglas' effectiveness.

Even if White misses his second straight game, Douglas could struggle. Arizona has limited opposing wide receivers to 16.29 Fantasy points per game, which ranks sixth. Number one receivers have had a rough go of it against the Cardinals. Calvin Johnson is the only number one wide receiver to score against them all season. Douglas might actually be better off if White returns, but still isn't a strong Fantasy play.


Two plays show best of Harry Douglas


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2013) Based on what I saw from Harry Douglas this season I thought enough of the guy to pick him up but enough to start him this week against the Bucs. He shattered all expectations on Sunday, catching all seven of his targets for 149 yards and a touchdown. 

Two of Douglas' catches made up for more than half of his stats. His first big play, for 54 yards, saw Bucs cornerback Leonard Johnson stride for stride with him but was out of position when Matt Ryan fired a nice pass Douglas adjusted to. Douglas picked up another 20 yards after the grab. The second catch was all Douglas -- he got inside of cornerback Johnthan Banks, Ryan recognized it and the rest is history for 37 yards. Douglas' other five catches went for 58 yards including a 26 yarder. 

It's not just the best game of Douglas' season but the best of his career. I'm pleasantly surprised but really wish I had seen more of this from Douglas so I could have suggested him as a reliable Week 7 start. Being buried on the Falcons' depth chart obviously hasn't helped Douglas from getting a lot of attention. Playing a bad Bucs defense didn't hurt either. 

I'd expect plenty more opportunities next week at Arizona but the Falcons' upcoming schedule is scary. After the Cardinals the Falcons play at Carolina and vs. Seattle, two tough matchups. 


Harry Douglas steps up with career day


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2013) With both Julio Jones (foot) and Roddy White (hamstring) inactive for the first time this season, Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas made his presence known Week 7 against the Buccaneers, catching seven passes for a career-high 149 yards and a touchdown.

After working mostly out of the slot earlier this season, Douglas showed some ability to stretch the field, his touchdown coming on a 37-yard bomb from Matt Ryan late in the first half. The two also hooked up on a 54-yard play earlier in the second quarter.

"I don't think anyone in our locker room was surprised by his play," Ryan said. "It's what he's capable of doing. You may not know that about him because we've had those other guys."

Douglas' previous career high in receiving yards was 133. He had more than that in the first half alone, helping the Falcons to a 24-10 lead. Of course, he was practically invisible in second half, catching just one pass for 9 yards, but the Falcons were no longer so interested in stretching the field up by two scores.

With Jones out for the season, Douglas figures to play a signficant role in the passing game going forward, though he may have to contend with White for looks Week 8 at Arizona.


What to expect from Harry Douglas


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2013) I wanted to know exactly what we were getting with Harry Douglas so I spent a little time going over all of his targets this season. What I saw was a good receiver with good quickness and hands but so-so speed. The most disappointing thing I saw in Douglas was his inability to separate from defenders. There were only two plays I saw where he had some subtantial action after the catch. 

He has had a decent amount of red-zone targets -- seven -- but just hasn't connected for a touchdown on any of them. On a number of plays he ran an out route to the front pylon so there are some designs for him. Away from the goal line he is willing to cross the field on both short and long routes. Routinely in single coverage, more attention will be paid to him until other Falcons receivers begin to show what they can do now that Julio Jones is out for the year and Roddy White is hobbled. 

Up to this point Douglas has played mostly in the slot and in three-receiver sets. No indication has been given if he'll retain that role but the sense is he'll play on every down and perhaps move into the slot in three-receiver sets. A bump in targets is expected but not a breakout stat line, at least not on a consistent basis. Stashing Douglas on the bench is the way to use him right now unless you're desperate for a No. 3 receiver with 60-80 yard potential.
