Fantasy Impact: Harry Douglas will have a strong opportunity to be a big contributor for the Titans offense next season. His roster competition will become much easier, going from Julio Jones and Roddy White ahead of him to Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter. Douglas will still need to find out who his new QB will be between current Titan Zach Mettenberger or a possible future draft pick. 30-year-old wide out is coming off his second best season as a pro with 51 receptions for 556 yards and two touchdowns. His best season was in 2013 when he caught 85 passes for 1,067 yards and two touchdowns. Douglas figures to be an upgrade over former Titan Nate Washington at this point in their careers.
Harry Douglas recorded 4 catches for 47 yards in the Falcons victory of the Saints on Sunday. With Julio Jones in the lineup, Douglas' looks in the passing game were limited.
Fantasy Impact: It was a decent afternoon from Douglas production wise, but it's nothing to really brag about. Assuming Julio Jones is a go next week in Carolina, don't expect too much from Douglas as the Falcons WR3.

Fantasy Impact: Although he didn't find the end zone last week, fantasy owners that started Douglas were rewarded (especially in PPR formats) with 10 receptions for 131 yards. If Julio Jones (hip) is forced to sit out another game, Douglas is again worth a start against a Saints defense that is giving up the 2nd most points to WRs over the past 4 weeks.
Fantasy Impact: Douglas is likely getting a rest day. He was able to step up for the injured Julio Jones this past Sunday. Jones is now a game time decision for this weekend. If he is forced to sit again, Douglas will plug in as a WR2.
Harry Douglas was very busy on Sunday hauling in 10 passes for 131 yards. With Julio Jones out of the lineup, Douglas served as the #2 WR in the Falcons passing attack, and was targeted often during the game.
Fantasy Impact: We've always known Harry Douglas was capable of these stat lines, it's just hard to do as a #3 WR in Atlanta. Even if Jones plays next week, expect some production from Douglas against a struggling Saints pass defense.

Fantasy Impact: If Jones does not play Sunday, Douglas will be worth a start against a porous Steelers defense that ranks 30th in the league vs. WRs over the past 4 weeks. At the very least, Douglas is worth a speculative add going into the weekend.
Harry Douglas caught 2 passes for 11 yards and 1 TD in Monday's loss to Green Bay.
Fantasy Impact: Douglas caught his TD when Julio Jones was forced from the game with a hip injury. Douglas does not have anything more than desperate sleeper value unless Jones misses time. If Jones misses next week against the Steelers, Douglas becomes an interesting spot-start for fantasy.
With Roddy White inactive, Douglas saw a lot of action on Sunday, and hauled in 9 receptions for 116 yards.
Fantasy Impact: This is an encouraging performance from Douglas, but a lot of it had to do with Roddy White being out of the line-up. Assuming White will be back next week, don't expect this kind of production from Douglas consistently.
Harry Douglas recorded only one catch on Sunday against Tampa Bay. His only catch was a very impressive leap over a defender in the endzone for an important 2 pt. conversion in the 4th quarter.
Fantasy Impact: This is a very disappointing outing from Douglas as he was only targeted twice on the day from scrimmage. As for some good news, it appears that Douglas is over his foot injury, and should be more and more involved with the offense as the season goes on.
Douglas was once again held to limited participation at Falcons practice on Thursday with his nagging foot injury. He is most likely only being limited as a precaution. (Source: Falcons Official Site)
Fantasy Impact: Nothing to see here, expect Douglas to be healthy and active for the Falcons next game in Tampa Bay. We will give him a low end WR3 play in most formats against a struggling Buccaneer defense.

Fantasy Impact: Although he was able to return to the lineup for the Falcons week 8 matchup with the Lions in London, Douglas is once again limited at practice with a lingering foot injury that has caused him to miss 4 games this season. If he is able to play Sunday vs the Bucs, it increases the fantasy value of everyone around him, as he is one more passing threat opposing defenses will have to plan for. We saw this in week 8 as the Falcons got out to an early 21-0 lead against the Lions.
Harry Douglas was finally active on Sunday for the Falcons and had decent production. Douglas hauled in 3 receptions for 42 yards on the day.
Fantasy Impact: Harry Douglas looked pretty healthy on Sunday after coming off his toe injury. The Falcons now have their bye week, so expect Douglas to be 100% for Week 10's game in Tampa Bay. Douglas is a fair WR3 play against a depleted Buccaneers defense.

Fantasy Impact: The Falcons will once against be without a key component to their offense, so expect Devin Hester to show up and play well in his first game against his old team. Douglas is not worth a roster spot at this point until he can get over this lingering injury.

Fantasy Impact: Although the banged up Bears defense poses a favorable matchup for Falcons WRs this week, it's best to stay away from Douglas if he is even able to take the field Sunday. Julio Jones and Roddy White are clear favorites for the majority of targets, with the possibility of Devin Hester being fed the ball as a statement against his former team.
Falcons WR Harry Douglas practiced in full on Wednesday and Thursday, and it appears that he will be ready to roll this Sunday against the Vikings. Douglas exited the Falcons last game with a foot injury. (Source: Vaughn McClure on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Douglas is a key piece in the Falcons dynamic passing attack, catching 12 balls for 121 yards and a TD so far this season. He is still a low WR3 option this week against the Vikings.
Douglas got the fire started for Atlanta and the Falcons Thursday night as he was the first of many Falcons to score a touchdown. Douglas finished the night with 2 receptions for 14 yards and 1 TD. Douglas left the game in the second quarter with a foot injury. (Source: NFL)
Fantasy Impact: Still the 3rd receiver behind Julio and White, I don't expect Douglas to see a whole lot of production. Continue to monitor Douglas' injury as the season heads into Week 4.
Harry Douglas had a decent game against the Bengals on Sunday. He caught 4 balls for 38 yards.
Fantasy Impact: Douglas carries very little value in the current structure of Atlanta's offense. He is ok as a WR3, but his value would improve tremendously with an injury to Roddy or Julio, and both are banged up. As of now, neither White or Jones are expected to miss any time, but this is a situation to watch.
