Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 13: Harry Douglas

Al Messerschmidt

We take a look at whether or not you should start Harry Douglas in Week 13.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas has been very effective this season. Douglas has stepped into the team's No. 1 receiver role thanks to multiple injuries to Roddy White and a season-ending injury to Julio Jones. Douglas has been consistently starting and playing for several weeks now, and he's flourished.

Douglas has 60 receptions for 833 yards on the season, but has only managed two touchdown grabs. That's been his biggest issue thus far: an inability to get open in the red zone. The Falcons themselves have only managed two wins on the season, and Matt Ryan has struggled at the quarterback position.

Fantasy Sit/Start: Douglas was never expected to play this much, but he's definitely risen to the task at this point. One has to imagine he'll have a role even when White and Jones return next season. As to whether or not fantasy owners should start Douglas this week, it's an iffy proposition. Douglas has been solid, but the Buffalo Bills are good against the pass. We'll call him a deep start as a WR2 or WR3 this week.
