Harry Douglas seems to be fitting into the role of the Atlanta Falcons No. 1 receiver during the absence of Roddy While and Julio Jones. Douglas caught 12 passes for 121 yards during Atlanta's loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Quarterback Matt Ryan targeted Douglas 18 times as Tony Gonzalez was heavily covered and Atlanta's running game was a non-factor despite the return of Steven Jackson. Douglas now has 270 yards and a touchdown through two weeks.
Fantasy impact: Douglas is settling in nicely as a strong WR2. He's been targeted 25 times over the past two weeks and is proving to be a trusted target on Atlanta's offense. Despite the fact that his quarterback struggled against the Cardinals on Sunday, Ryan can be counted on to effectively get the ball into Douglas' hands more often than not. Douglas likely be a borderline WR2 or WR3 when Roddy White returns, but there's no telling how quickly White can make an impact when he takes the field. Douglas should be owned in all formats.
