Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, leaving the team thin at wide receiver. Douglas has not practiced this week after getting injured in Week 6 against the Oakland Raiders.
Roddy White, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez remain the main weapons in Atlanta's passing game but it leaves the Falcons without a proven option as a No. 3 wide receiver. Douglas has 16 catches for 149 yards this season.
Fantasy Impact: Douglas wasn't much of a factor for fantasy owners but his absence doesn't give a slight boost to the fantasy value of White, Jones and Gonzalez.
Douglas has been an under-appreciated part of Atlanta's offense but has certainly not been worth owning. Jones, White and Gonzalez remain must-starts in all formats for Week 8.
