|Harry Douglas represents a bit of a fantasy wild card entering the 2014 season. Until 2013, Douglas had never caught 40 balls in a season. His production last year, finishing 15th in the NFL in receptions, was directly related to opportunity, and he will be the third receiver on the depth chart to open 2014. However, the Falcons' passing offense has the potential to support three worthy fantasy receivers, especially with reports of the spread offense being integrated even more this year. In addition, the Falcons have brought in ex-Bear Devin Hester to handle special teams duties, which will free up Douglas to focus solely on offense. If nothing else, Douglas will have more trust from Matt Ryan and find enough targets to be fantasy relevant as a bye-week substitute. He is a WR3/4 with some upside considering the offense and potential injury risk of Jones and White.
Comment: The Falcons are expected to use a 3-wide receiver formation as their base offense this year, but Douglas may actually see his production go down from last season (85,1067,2).
| Roddy White limited, Douglas practices|
Falcons should have White on the field in Week 4

|Wide receiver Roddy White (hamstring) continued to work on the side with the training staff. Devin Hester (calf), running back Antone Smith (hamstring) and wide receiver Harry Douglas (foot) returned to practice on Wednesday after being held out on Monday.

FFToday's Take: We'll monitor White's practice participation the rest of this week and he's likely to be limited, but the general feeling is that he will be available in Week 4.
| Roddy White Inactive|
Hamstring injury will cause Roddy to sit

FFToday's Take: The Falcons hinted throughout the week that Roddy's rest during practice this week was a precaution. Sounds like his hamstring injury is more serious. Harry Douglas and Devin Hester will get a boost in fantasy value with Douglas becoming a flex option.
