WR - New England Patriots
Demario Douglas caught 2-of-5 targets for 13 yards in the Patriots’ 17-3 loss to the Jets.
Douglas closes out his rookie year with a quiet performance in a snowy loss to the Jets. The 23-year-old will finish the year with over 500 receiving yards but no touchdowns in 14 games. Douglas will likely be a key component of a rebuilding Patriots’ offense in 2024.
Demario Douglas caught 3-of-5 targets for 31 yards in the Patriots’ 27-21 loss to Buffalo.
Douglas also added 12 rushing yards on three carries in the loss. Douglas was second on the team in targets but continues to establish himself as a part of the Patriots’ future. The rookie wide receiver will close out the year with a tough matchup against the Jets.
Demario Douglas hauled in five of his eight targets for 74 yards in the Patriots' 26-23 Week 16 win over the Denver Broncos.
Douglas has become a primary option in the underwhelming New England passing attack of late, seeing at least five targets in each of his last seven games for the Patriots. The wideout should remain heavily involved for quarterback Bailey Zappe in a Week 17 contest against the Buffalo Bills in which the Patriots will likely be playing from behind.
Demario Douglas hauled in 3 of 5 targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Chiefs.
Douglas cleared the concussion protocol late last week and was able to return from a two-game absence. In his first game back, the rookie receiver got on the field for 72 percent of the Patriots' offensive snaps and finished tied for third on the team in targets. Douglas has now been targeted at least five times in each of his last six games, averaging 4.8 receptions for 50 yards in that stretch. He certainly has some appeal in PPR formats, but Douglas' upside is capped, as he has yet to find the end zone over 11 games.
Patriots' coach Bill Belichick said Demario Douglas has cleared the concussion protocol and will be available this weekend barring a setback.
Douglas returned to practice earlier this week for the first time since he suffered his concussion in Week 12. He had started to take over the No. 1 role for New England prior to his injury, catching five passes in four straight games. He will be in the WR3 range this week.
