|After a largely disappointing 2010 season in which he caught just 22 passes for 294 yards and a touchdown, Douglas bounced back last season to post career highs in all receiving categories with 39 receptions for 498 yards and a pair of scores. Perhaps most importantly, he developed more chemistry with quarterback Matt Ryan, catching 62.9% of his targets after hauling in just 41.5% in 2010. While Douglas has displayed some decent playmaking ability at times (witness his eight reception, 133 yard performance against the Saints in Week 10), he is primarily a slot receiver playing in an offense that features perhaps two of the league’s top 10 wide receivers in Roddy White and Julio Jones as well as a future Hall of Famer in tight end Tony Gonzalez. Consistent opportunity just isn’t what is in store for Douglas in 2012. He is only worth owning if White or Jones are out for a significant period of time.

Hip, Oblique injury
|Julio Jones will play today for the Falcons, per source. William Moore and Harry Douglas also up. Jon Asamoah down (Carimi starts). (Albert Breer on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Jones went through workouts early this morning and while he's far from 100%, he's expected to play. Keep in mind, the risk for decoy, re-injury or being limited is great. Expectations should be limited.
| Julio Jones out for Week 15 -- Sun Dec 14 11:35 am --|
|Falcons WR Julio Jones and S William Moore are officially out. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Ed Werder of ESPN also reported that Julio is bothered by a labrum issue in his hip. Roddy White and Harry Douglas will get the start. Both are intriguing options against a weak Steelers secondary.
