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.
FF Today's Take:Wright originally suffered his rib injury in Week 13 and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Harry Douglas. Dorial Green-Beckham is worth a look if the Patriots focus their defensive attention on TE Delanie Walker.
Kendall Wright to miss Thursday night game-- Wed Nov 18 12:29 pm --
FF Today's Take:Wright has missed the last two games with a knee injury and will miss Thursday night's game with Jacksonville. Harry Douglas and Dorial Green-Beckham are expected to be the leading wideouts with TE Delanie Walker soaking up targets as well.
