Harry Douglas led all Atlanta Falcons receivers with nine receptions for 79 yards on 11 targets in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints. Darius Johnson grabbed six catches for 67 yards on eight targets, and Roddy White caught both of his targets for 24 yards.
Matt Ryan was in check-down mode on Thursday night, and Douglas and Johnson reaped the benefits. However, Johnson dropped a third-down pass and he fumbled in the Saints territory in the second half to put on damper on his night.
Fantasy impact: We're still waiting for a breakout performance from Roddy White, but that notion has yet to materialize. He's out there, he just isn't making an impact. After catching a touchdown last week, he disappeared again.
Douglas is a solid PPR play. The majority of his receptions went for fewer than 10 yards, though, so temper your expectations with the way the Falcons offense is operating. Atlanta faces Buffalo next week. Douglas is a good flex option for PPR. Owners have to be wary about playing White until major changes are seen.
