Veteran receiver Harry Douglas raved about rookie wide receivers Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor. "I can tell already they are going to be special," Douglas said via Titansonline.com. "They both make plays." Davis was the fifth overall pick of the NFL Draft out of Western Michigan, and Taylor was a third-round pick from Western Kentucky.
After ranking 25th in the NFL in passing yards last season, the Tennessee Titans drafted two receivers in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft. Both Davis, who averaged 15.5 yards-per-reception, and Taylor, who averaged 17.7 yards-per-reception last season, have big play potential and could become playmakers for the Titans.
The Titans' official website doesn't consider Harry Douglas a lock for the 53-man roster.
Justin Hunter and sophomore Tre McBride are his competition for the team's final receiver spot. Douglas has plenty working in his favor, including his veteran status, a history with coach Mike Mularkey and a team that's prone to bad decisions. Douglas turns 32 in September.
Harry Douglas caught 6-of-12 targets for 79 yards Week 16 against the Texans.
Douglas' 12 targets were a season-high as he was continually thrown to by the enigmatic Zach Mettenberger. Douglas also fumbled a punt which led to the early onslaught by the Texans. He is a WR4 at best and not fantasy worthy for Week 17 at Indianapolis.
Harry Douglas caught 3-of-7 targets for 65 yards Week 14 against the Jets.
Nothing much to see here. With Dorial Green-Beckham entering into a larger target share, Douglas will be a forgotten man most afternoons apart from creating space in the slot. He is the fourth or fifth option at best in this offense and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.
Harry Douglas caught 1-of-3 targets for only eight yards in Week 13.
Douglas saw his role reduced in Week 13, as Green-Beckham stole the spotlight for the Titans. With Green-Beckham's emergence and Wright's return, Douglas shouldn't be on the fantasy radar any longer.
