Harry Douglas keeping up in targets


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) For the second straight game, Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas tied Roddy White for the second-most targets Week 2 at Cincinnati, finishing with eight, one more than the duo had Week 1 against New Orleans.

Of course, Douglas was more productive in that first game, catching six passes for 69 yards. In this one, he caught four for 38. He, like the rest of the Falcons receiving corps, struggled to pick up yards after the catch -- a stark contrast to Week 1, when they excelled in that area.

Still, Douglas' targets are just another indication he'll remain an integral part of the passing game after breaking out with 1,067 yards in a year when both White and Julio Jones were slowed by injuries last year.

He'll look to keep it going Week 3 against the Buccaneers, who come to town for a Thursday night tilt.


Falcons emphasizing four-receiver look


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) The Falcons are putting a new emphasis on a four-receiver set featuring Julio Jones, Roddy White, Harry Douglas and Devin Hester, reports ESPN.com. The lineup "worked wonders" against the Saints as Matt Ryan threw for 448 yards in a 37-34 overtime win, the report said.

Atlanta plays with one running back and no tight ends in that formation.


Harry Douglas more than just a third wheel


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Even with Julio Jones and Roddy White both at full health for the first time since 2012, Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas still played a major role in the passing game Week 1 against the Saints, catching six passes for 69 yards. His seven targets tied him with White for second-most on the team.

He was one of several beneficiaries of quarterback Matt Ryan's career-high 448 passing yards. Four receivers had five catches or more. Five had 50 yards or more.

Like Douglas, Jones and White were among both groups, but so was newcomer Devin Hester, who had five catches for 99 yards.

Douglas will do his best not to get lost in the shuffle Week 2 at Cincinnati.


Harry Douglas back to being third wheel


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/2/2014) In a career year last year, two of Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas' best performances came against the division rival Saints, who will be visiting Atlanta in Week 1. He caught four passes for 93 yards in the first meeting and nine for 79 in the second.

But the Falcons' receiving corps wasn't at full capacity in those games. For both, Roddy White was attempting to play through a high ankle sprain -- an injury that would plague him for most of the season -- and for the second, Julio Jones was sidelined by a broken foot.

Still, the Falcons will have a void to fill in the passing game with Tony Gonzalez retired, and though Douglas obviously doesn't play tight end, some of those looks could go his way instead.

Is that reason enough to start him right out of the gate against the team that ranked second against the pass last year, allowing 194.1 yards per game? Even with the history, probably not. But in a 16-team league or deeper, you could do worse.


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.
