Week 9 vs. CHI
Receiving: 4 / 31 / 0 on 4 targets
Doucet caught all four balls thrown to him. The Cardinals tried the same hitch play twice --- the first time, it was for a first down; the second time (in the red zone), it went for no gain. He converted three of his four catches for first down yardage.
Week 10 vs. SEA
Receiving: 1 / 8 / 0 on 3 targets
Doucet appears to have taken over the number four receiver job. Problem is, with a healthy Anquan Boldin and a productive running game, that doesn't leave him much opportunity. He is still developing a rapport with Warner, which was evident on one pass that he couldn't pull in. It was thrown high; a lot like the routine throws that Larry Fitzgerald catches, but Doucet wasn't able to handle it.
Week 11 vs. STL
Receiving: 1 / 20 / 0 on 2 targets
Fourth wide receiver Earl Doucet made a big catch late in the game to keep the ball in Arizona's hands with under three minutes to play. Doucet grabbed a 20-yard gainer on his only catchable target of the game. Right now he is the fourth wide receiver for Arizona which severely limits his fantasy upside.
Week 12 vs. TEN
Receiving: 1 / 28 / 0 on 2 targets
Doucet continues to contribute as the fourth receiver. In this one, he had a nice catch and run to spark the offense, but since the passing game was scaled back, his targets were few. Doucet does seem poised to assume a bigger role next year if the Cardinals can deal Anquan Boldin.
Week 13 vs. MIN
Receiving: 2 / 15 / 0 on 2 targets
Doucet is the #4 WR on a team with three great wideouts. He worked the middle of the field, and finished with just two receptions for fifteen yards.
Week 14 vs. SF
Receiving: 2 / 41 / 0 on 3 targets
Doucet continues to make a bid for more playing time in the future. He had a terrific deep over-the-shoulder sideline catch where he knew exactly how much room he had to work with, and ran tough after his catch over the middle. If the Cards trade Anquan Boldin in the offseason, Doucet could be in for a breakout year.
Week 15 vs. DET
Receiving: 0 / 0 / 0 on 1 targets
Doucet had a drop, but he also threw the block to spring Boldin's game-winning TD catch.
Week 16 vs. STL
Receiving: 2 / 43 / 1 on 2 targets
Doucet went up for the nice extension over the middle to score, and he also ran tough and strong after the catch to get a nice gain on his other reception. The Cards three-wide base set will remain strong if they trade Anquan Boldin during the offseason because Doucet looks ready to assume Steve Breaston's role if Breaston becomes a starter.
Week 17 vs. GB
Receiving: 4 / 28 / 0 on 5 targets
After his teammates pumped him up after last week's performance, Doucet came out with energy and had two nice grabs in the 1st quarter and ended the game with a few more garbage time snags. He's a physical presence on the field and has clearly shown that he can become the team's 3rd WR if Boldin departs next year.
Week 18 vs. GB
Receiving: 6 / 77 / 2 on 6 targets
Doucet made his arrival on the scene with Boldin out by running very strong after the catch - in fact it was very Boldin-esque. Doucet caught a pair of scores, and also made multiple catches in the red zone, including the catch that set up Neil Rackers missed game-winning FG attempt. His emergence is another reason the Cardinals can afford to trade Anquan Boldin this offseason.
Week 19 vs. NO
Receiving: 8 / 68 / 0 on 11 targets
Doucet was thrown to often and showed that he has electric stuff once he's got the ball, but also that he is a little inconsistent when it comes to the first part. He was mainly used on short patterns and fought hard for yards after the catch; once dragging a defender a good five yards to get the first down. Doucet did not look spectacular, but did not look entirely out of place as the Cards most targeted receiver.
