Rebound in the works for Harry Douglas?
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.
Delanie Walker returns to practice, all but set for Sunday game
Walker was on a tear before missing the Week 14 clash at Denver. He had 19 catches for 199 yards and two touchdowns in his previous two games combined.

Expect Roddy White to keep rolling
Limited by a high ankle sprain for most of the season,
The Redskins rank 27th against the pass, allowing 256.7 yards per game, and have allowed the 13th-most Fantasy points to wide receivers. And right now, they're in a state of disarray, with unrest at head coach and quarterback. They appeared disinterested in a 45-10 loss against the Chiefs last week while the Falcons appeared motivated in a 22-21 loss at the Packers.
Granted, White still has to compete with Harry Douglas for looks, but as favorable as this matchup appears to be for the Falcons' passing game, quarterback Matt Ryan should be able to sustain both, as he did Week 13 at Buffalo.
Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all rank Roddy White among their top 24 wide receivers for this week, which means he deserves to start in the majority of leagues. And I think he's a safer bet than some of the players they rank ahead of him, including Torrey Smith, Julian Edelman and Pierre Garcon.
