The Atlanta Falcons get a short week as they take on the division-leading New Orleans Saints. Their offense hasn’t been its usual high-powered self, but receiver Harry Douglas is having a great season.
In his past five games, Douglas has an average of 107 yards per game and two scores in that span. He has a catch of at least 25 yards in every game and an average of 7.0 receptions per game.
Douglas has done a nice job this season filling in for Julio Jones. Obviously, he’s not even close to the talent that Jones is, but his ability to stretch the field has gone a long way to help open things up for the Falcons.
Fantasy impact: Even before the Jones injury, Douglas turned in a nice 93-yard day in the opener against the Saints. The loss of Jabari Greer could go a long way for Douglas, and the Saints now become much more vulnerable down the field. Douglas is a high-upside WR2 in most formats because of how the Falcons will have to get the ball down the field to keep up with the high-powered Saints.
