|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 leagueís 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 isnít 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.

Projecting the Titans WR group
|So if Tajae Sharpe - who caught 111 passes last season for Massachusetts - looks good, it could mean trouble for Justin Hunter. The former second-round pick missed almost half of last year and hasnít caught as many as 30 passes in three years.
FF Today's Take: The Titans drafted the rookie Sharpe in the 5th round and assuming Rishard Matthews, Kendall Wright, Dorial Green-Beckham and Harry Douglas have roster spots locked up, Hunter could be on the outside looking in. While showing unique athleticism, Hunter has yet to crack 500 receiving yards in any of his three seasons.
