Fantasy football start/sit, Week 12: Harry Douglas has upside against New Orleans

Al Messerschmidt

Harry Douglas has proven to be quite an asset in fantasy since Julio Jones went down. Should you start him this week?

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.
