WR Harry Douglas - Free Agent
|5-11, 176||Born: 9-16-1985||College: Louisville||Drafted: Round 3, pick 2008|
2016 Week 16 vs JAX (6 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas resurfaced in Week 16 to catch five balls for 48 yards against the Jaguars. Douglass had failed to amass more than two receptions all season until this game. He played his second most snaps all season here due to the Titans' pass-heavy approach required, but he will not be a reliable option going forward as he usually averages less than 20 snaps on the field.
2015 Week 1 vs TB (2 / 2 / 24 / 1 rec)
Harry Douglas had a quiet but impressive game for the Titans in his debut. His first reception was the result of a beautiful Mariota pass down the seam as he pulled the ball in with a defender on his back. After that, he caught a touchdown pass in the redzone after working infield to wide open space for the reception. Unless Hakeem Nicks makes an unexpected return to the roster this week, Douglas appears to be comfortably the team's second starter at this point.
2015 Week 2 vs CLE (8 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec, 1 / -6 / 0 rush)
It wasn't a good day for Harry Douglas. The receiver had an early personal foul penalty that stunted a drive before dropping a deep pass late in the fourth quarter. He registered just one reception for nine yards.
2015 Week 3 vs IND (6 / 3 / 20 / 0 rec)
Douglas had a couple of targets on the opening drives of the game for the Titans, but his most significant play came when he dropped a potential first down catch on an out route. Mariota's pass should have been better placed, but Douglas had enough time to adjust to it and bring it in. It was a quiet game for the veteran receiver after that point. It appears inevitable that he will be phased out of the offense as Dorial Green-Beckham becomes more comfortable in the whole offense.
2015 Week 5 vs BUF (3 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Once Dorial Green-Beckham shows more comfort on the field, Douglas' snaps should be extremely limited. The receiver consistently failed to get open in this game when targeted. Stephon Gilmore disrupted his first attempt at catching a pass before Douglas was called for offensive pass interference when he got free on a third down conversion. Douglas did adjust well to one first down pass on a third down but his overall contribution was disappointing.
2015 Week 6 vs MIA (4 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas struggled last week against the Buffalo Bills. The Titans went to him early on the first drive, targeting him in space after play action for a first down. Douglas followed up his first target by failing to make a tougher reception downfield for what would have been a 15-yard gain. He didn't see the ball again until late in the fourth quarter, when he couldn't bring in a high pass from Mariota over the middle of the field on fourth down.
2015 Week 9 vs NO (5 / 5 / 73 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas caught all five of his targets on Sunday for 73 yards, which represents his most productive day as a member of the Titans. He hauled in his longest reception of the day right before the half, a 30-yard deep left connection with Marcus Mariota that brought the Titans into Saints territory. The drive ultimately resulted in a turnover by Dexter McCluster as the final play of the half. His role will most likely be impacted once Kendall Wright returns, leaving him as no better than the fourth option in the passing game.
2015 Week 10 vs CAR (3 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
With Kendall Wright inactive, Harry Douglas could have expected a big role in this game. He didn't have one. Douglas was the first receiver to catch a pass, but that catch came midway through the second quarter when Mariota checked it down underneath on Third-and-Long. It was the only catch a Titans receiver made in the first half. Douglas didn't catch another pass until late in the fourth quarter, when he gained just one yard. He followed that up with a downfield reception over the middle of the field, but that was in garbage time.
2015 Week 11 vs JAX (5 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas had one reception in the first half of last week's game, it came late in the second quarter. He wasn't made to wait as long in this game. Douglas caught Mariota's first pass of the game for a first down on a quick out route from the slot. His second target didn't result in a reception, but did result in a first down. Douglas ran a curl route and was held by Aaron Colvin after his release. The veteran got two more targets before the end of the half, his first was a slant route when he was open but couldn't control the ball through contact. Mariota went straight back to Douglas at the beginning of the following drive as he caught a nine-yard pass on the sideline as the defense dropped deep. Douglas was struggling to get open, but he benefited from multiple holding penalties and a long pass interference penalty in the third quarter to still provide value to the offense.
2015 Week 12 vs OAK (8 / 3 / 29 / 1 rec)
Douglas was the target for Mariota's first pass of the game, but it was tipped at the line of scrimmage long before he could touch it. He didn't have to wait long for his second target and his first reception, as Mariota found him after play action for a short gain in the flat. In the second quarter, Mariota looked for Douglas after extending the play into the flat. It was a third down, but Douglas couldn't create any separation. A penalty on the punt extended the play, and Mariota checked down to the receiver for a short gain on Second-and-Long. Douglas drew multiple pass interference penalties before making a very impressive touchdown catch in the third quarter. He caught the ball in the back of the end zone despite a defender hanging off of him. On a similar play in the fourth quarter, Douglas was pulled down in the endzone when Mariota tried to find him. He once again drew a pass interference penalty despite not getting near the ball.
2015 Week 13 vs JAX (3 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Douglas was targeted a few times earl on in this game, but he couldn't get open and Mariota couldn't find him. He eventually caught his only pass on a short curl route late in the second quarter before playing a peripheral role in the second half..
2015 Week 14 vs NYJ (7 / 3 / 65 / 0 rec)
As has been the case with Harry Douglas all season, he struggled to get open against the Jets. His first reception came in the third quarter, when he lined up tight to the line of scrimmage and caught a short pass against zone coverage. In the fourth quarter, Douglas shocked everyone by gaining 51 yards on a slant. Douglas was left wide open when Cromartie was picked off so it was a clean run downfield for Douglas. The receiver's gain was impressive, but in truth he should have gone further than he did because he was unopposed before getting to top speed. Douglas followed up that play with a short reception on a curl against zone coverage to begin the following drive.
2015 Week 15 vs NE (4 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Douglas wasn't involved at all during the first three quarters of this game. He saw his first target and catch early in the fourth quarter, when he ran a curl route before extending for a reception nine yards downfield. Mettenberger found Douglas again on a shorter curl route over the middle against zone coverage for five yards.
2015 Week 16 vs HOU (12 / 6 / 79 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas' first contribution to this game didn't come on offense, it came when he fumbled a punt return to set up the Texans offense in the Titans redzone. Although he started the game poorly, Douglas made a number of contested catches that he has failed to make this season. He had two that stood out more than others. Late in the second quarter, he extended on a high fast ball from Mettenberger despite the tight coverage on his back. In the third quarter, he caught a pass while dragging his feet in bounds deep down the right sideline.
2015 Week 17 vs IND (2 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Douglas caught his first target and it even went for a first down. It didn't come until the fourth quarter though. He ran a deep in route and caught an accurate pass with a defender on his back. Later in the game, he caught a quick out route against off coverage for a four yard gain.
2014 Week 1 vs NO (7 / 6 / 69 / 0 rec)
With Tony Gonzalez retired, Atlanta is spreading the field and targeting Douglas and Devin Hester. Douglas earned check-downs for short yardage when pressure reached the pocket, but he also earned gains like a 17-yarder on an out from the slot. Douglas demonstrated good sideline awareness on this out and a second target for a 16-yard gain that was nullified due to a penalty. The only target Douglas didn't catch was a throw up the left flat where Douglas was double covered when defensive back Patrick Robinson abandoned his coverage on Levine Toilolo to come over top on Douglas. The Falcons' receiver got both hands on the well-placed ball, but he could not maintain concentration to snare it. Douglas also earned consecutive targets in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter. Don't be surprised if Douglas and Hester do a strong job of compensating, if not augmenting, Tony Gonzalez's totals in this offense.
2014 Week 2 vs CIN (8 / 4 / 38 / 0 rec)
- Douglas was involved in some of the worst passing plays of the game. Cincinnati sat on a short cross early in the game and tackled Doulgas to end the first drive of the game. He was nailed during the act of catching a 2nd and 7 throw to the right sideline and dropped the ball. Douglas then dropped a flat route thrown a little far from his reach with a little more than a minute in the half. He did catch a pass up the middle in the later part of the third quarter, but then dropped a ball late in the fourth quarter after hit near the sideline by Reggie Nelson. He was helped off the field, but returned for a short gain up the sideline during the same drive. Douglas also saw a target inside the five, but Matt Ryan overshot the pass and didn't account for the safety behind Douglas, resulting in an interception. Douglas was a not a factor this week after a strong week against the Saints.
2014 Week 3 vs TB (2 / 2 / 14 / 1 rec)
Roddy White's absence allowed Douglas some primary looks, but Atlanta earned a big plays on the ground, defense, special teams, and in the deep passing game thanks to a banged-up and overmatched Buccaneers squad that Douglas only caught two passes. His most impactful was a three-yard score in the back of the end zone when Matt Ryan had to buy time to his right.
2014 Week 8 vs DET (5 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
After missing several weeks with an injury, Douglas was a factor in this game. He earned a first down on a corner route to the left sideline on first scoring drive for the Falcons. He later caught a ball in the flat in the second quarter that put Atlanta in Detroit territory. His best play of the day was a diving catch with full extension on a third down target thrown over his shoulder on a wheel route run from the slot. This earned Douglas a first down and extended a late drive that should have ended the game. However, poor clock management and a penalty allowed Detroit its game-winning drive.
2014 Week 10 vs TB (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The veteran drew a defensive pass interference call in the end zone on 3rd and goal during the first drive and set up a Seven Jackson touchdown. In the fourth quarter, Douglas made a tough catch at the left sideline in the end zone for a two-point conversion in tight coverage. This was is only catch of the day.
2014 Week 11 vs CAR (4 / 4 / 46 / 0 rec)
Douglas, who like Hester has been bothered by foot and leg injuries, earned a few targets in the short passing game in the flats and the middle of the field under the zone. He didn't gain more than 10 yards on any play, but did earn two first downs on a stop route and seam pass.
2014 Week 12 vs CLE (4 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
The offensive contributor had a miscommunication with his quarterback on a third down route that forced a punt in the second quarter. He managed to earn a first down in the fourth quarter after Matt Ryan reduced his shoulder from Barkevious Mingo's edge rush. But other than a flat route with 0:55 left that got Atlanta into field goal range, this was the extent of Douglas' production. Devin Hester was the more productive slot option this week.
2014 Week 13 vs ARI (12 / 9 / 116 / 0 rec)
With Roddy White missing the week with an ankle injury, Douglas earned enough targets on crossing routes and passes to the flat off play action to produce a 100-yard effort. Atlanta did a good job of clogging the middle with multiple crossing routes at a variety of levels to put the defense in a bind and Matt Ryan found the receiver who had the best chance to run free, which was often Douglas. At the same time, Douglas also had a 19-yard gain on a deep dig route during the second half to get Atlanta into scoring position. It was a workmanlike performance for Douglas, a polished receiver who lacks consistent big-play ability, but offers reliable hands and the quickness to get early separation to generate yards.
2014 Week 14 vs GB (3 / 2 / 11 / 1 rec)
Atlanta did a good job avoiding its occasional over-use of the wide receiver screen. The only call of its kind came in the third quarter to Douglas for a gain of 10 yards, and the veteran was on the receiving end of a facemask that tacked 15 more yards to the play. Douglas caught a two-yard score with 2:11 left to cut the lead to six on a corner route against Casey Hayward. Both were impact plays, but they were also on the only targets he earned as a cameo to the Julio Jones show. f
2014 Week 15 vs PIT (14 / 10 / 131 / 0 rec)
Douglas earned nine yards on a first down crossing route after converting a third down to begin the game. William Gay picked off Ryan on the first play of the second quarter when Ryan targeted Douglas on an intermediate crossing route that was undercut by the corner. Gay made a fine runback up the left flat for the score. This was the difference in the game, but Douglas had a great afternoon in the box score. Ryan later found Douglas in the left flat for eight and Douglas earned two more for the first down on the next series from an empty set. Douglas was aligned to the left a lot during the first half and the short passing game on the perimeter against a banged up Steeler secondary did wonders. The worst plays Douglas had were a pair of offensive interference calls in the second and third quarters--one in the red zone. Overall, Douglas was in tune with Ryan and productive on short routes and after the catch on screen passes.
2014 Week 16 vs NO (7 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec)
Douglas had a half-step on his man on a fade route, but he looked to the inside shoulder and Matt Ryan threw to the outside shoulder in the end zone on this third down route. Atlanta had to settle for a 44-yard field goal. Ryan also threw the ball behind Douglas on a crossing route that could have put Atlanta well into Saints' territory after an Atlanta interception of Drew Brees near midfield. Douglas later dropped a route up the seam in Saints territory in the mid third quarter. Despite some near-misses, Douglas displayed his skill on a terrific gain of 27 yards on a wide receiver screen where he worked inside a Julio Jones block and bounced off two converging hits by Saints defenders to make his way across the field and finish the run at midfield. He was two plays (with better execution) away from a strong performance.
2014 Week 17 vs CAR (6 / 5 / 28 / 0 rec)
The Atlanta receiver saw a steady diet of shallow crosses, swing routes, and flat routes. He had one deeper route on fourth down in the red zone, but Carolina's safety cut off the route while coming from the middle of the field and returned the interception for a touchdown of 84 yards.
2013 Week 1 vs NO (6 / 4 / 93 / 0 rec)
The Falcons' third receiver led the offense with 93 yards, including a 52-yard gain on an intermediate cross. Matt Ryan read the blitz up the middle, found Douglas crossing both hash marks and hit the receiver wide-open in the opposite flat in stride. Douglas did the rest, gaining most of the yards up the sideline. Douglas also made some key plays in the second half, including a reception in a tight window with just over a minute left to get Atlanta inside the Saints' 10. Douglas should continue to earn quality targets in the passing game until Roddy White demonstrates his high ankle sprain isn't limiting him.
2013 Week 2 vs STL (5 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
Douglas was effective if not especially productive this week. He caught a quick slant for a first down after Cortland Finnegan gave the receiver too much cushion in the slot and bit on an outside move before the inside break. He then beat Finnegan again on a dig route for 15 yards. Once again Finnegan gave too much cushion, but the Falcons smartly put Douglas outside but tight to Tony Gonzalez to force more some of that cushion. Douglas was targeted on a deep seam route but the Rams' safety picked it up and did a fine job of covering Douglas on the deep half of the route. While he had two additional catches - one on a shallow cross and the other on a hook - Douglas was not the same factor was he was early in the game. One of the reasons was an increased use of Roddy White during the two-minute offenses of each half.
2013 Week 3 vs MIA (6 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
The slot receiver and punt returner had an up-and-down game. Douglas made two nice moves for a 23-yard gain on a punt return in the first quarter and also had a nice play on a quick screen to get inside the Miami 10 late in the first half. However, he dropped a 2nd-and-13 crossing route in the middle of the third quarter, allowing the ball to bounce off his mitts. He also lost a fumble on a late-third quarter punt return when hit hard while working up the right flat. this put Miami on the Atlanta 20 and led to a game-tying touchdown. Douglas did earn a red zone target in the game on a pass play designed to lure the defensive backs to Julio Jones on a wide receiver screen while Douglas ran a corner route from the same side. The defensive back wasn't fooled and forced Ryan to make a tight throw to the boundary and Douglas could not make the catch and get both feet inbounds.
2013 Week 4 vs NE (6 / 5 / 68 / 0 rec)
Douglas had a 40-yard gain on a crossing route versus a Patriots' blitz up the middle with 5:30 in the game to get into Patriots' territory. Otherwise his production was minor, yet consequential. He had a play action flat route for five yards in the first series. He also caught a crossing route, broke a tackle, and earned a first down up the left sideline. He also caught a second cross for seven yards in the fourth quarter and then a screen pass for a first down with 4:00 left.
2013 Week 7 vs TB (7 / 7 / 149 / 1 rec)
Douglas had his best game as a pro and all but one catch came in the first half. The Falcons did a good job of using Douglas as the single receiver opposite trips alignments to earn one-on-one opportunities against rookie corer Johnathan Banks. Douglas didn't face Darrelle Revis much in this game. The one notable target came on a crossing route versus Douglas who was playing off-man against an intermediate crossing route for a 27-yard gain. Most of Douglas' work came on crossers, seams, and in-cuts. The only other time Douglas faced Revis was on a third and long where the corner blanketed the receiver, but the Buccaneers were called for roughing the passer. Douglas' best plays came on seam routes. He had a good, back-shoulder catch that his quarterback threw on the run and forced defensive back Leonard Johnson to react too early on the target. Douglas' 37-yard score was against the rookie Jonathan Banks on a double move complemented nicely by a Matt Ryan shoulder fake. Douglas waited on the ball after getting a lot of separation with the move.
2013 Week 8 vs ARI (18 / 12 / 121 / 0 rec)
Douglas was the focus of the offense in this game and the majority of his targets came within five yards of the line of scrimmage. Atlanta used quick passing in an attempt to counteract the Cardinals' A-gap pressure. There was a series where Douglas was the target of a quick throw-out within a couple of yards at the line of scrimmage on three of four straight plays. While these quick throws, smash screens, and drag routes on the trips side of formations were good for Douglas' fantasy owners, he was the only player consistently moving the chains in a game where they needed chunk plays and not nickel and dime targets.
2013 Week 9 vs CAR (5 / 3 / 82 / 0 rec)
Douglas dropped a 3rd and four flat route after contact inside Atlanta's own 20 in the first half, which forced a punt. Later he caught an intermediate crossing route that Matt Ryan led with good touch past defensive back Captain Munnerlyn. This allowed Douglas to gain another 15-20 yards after the catch up the right sideline once he turned the corner on the defender. He also came back to the ball on an underthrown go route that could have passed for a back-shoulder fade in the third quarter. However, Ryan overthrew Douglas on a cross on the next play, which Douglas tipped with one hand and Carolina's linebacker Thomas Davis made the interception. These two plays came in the third quarter and by the time Douglas earned his next target, the Falcons were down by 24 and there was only 21 seconds left in the game.
2013 Week 10 vs SEA (8 / 7 / 49 / 0 rec)
Douglas got blown up behind the line of scrimmage on a WR screen in the first half and didn't see a target until the second half. On that target, Douglas caught a crossing route, got the corner on the defense, and worked up the right flat. However, Seattle stripped the ball from Douglas' grip at the end of the gain of 31 yards, and the receiver lost the fumble. This fumble ended one of only two possessions Atlanta had between the start of the third quarter and the two-minute warning. Despite earning seven grabs in this game, six of those catches earned him 18 yards.
2013 Week 11 vs TB (9 / 6 / 134 / 1 rec)
Douglas scored on an 80-yard pass in the fourth quarter when he beat rookie CB Johnathan Banks over the middle and ran through a tackle attempt I could best describe as a tap without a wrap and earned most of the 80-yard touchdown up the middle untouched. Douglas had five other catches in this game, but most were slants, crossing routes, and a comeback in the short zone. One intermediate zone target was a back shoulder play where Matt Ryan made the throw under pressure and the target fell shy even with Douglas diving for it.
2013 Week 12 vs NO (11 / 9 / 79 / 0 rec)
Matt Ryan targeted Douglas deep on a streak up the left sideline to begin the game, but it was overthrown. The rest of the game, Ryan found Douglas on a variety of crossing routes and screens. None of these catchds were particularly noteworthy beyond the fact that Douglas is the quickest receiver who knows his role best and makes plays where the defense is allowing Atlanta's passing game to function.
2013 Week 13 vs BUF (15 / 6 / 73 / 0 rec)
With Roddy White healthy enough to beat single coverage beyond the shallow zone, Douglas was even more dangerous as an offensive weapon even if his stats weren't more than that of a fantasy WR2 (6-73). Douglas had more open lanes on crossing routes and seam routes because of the White-Gonzalez combination and the threat of the run game and the young receiver took advantage of them. He also nearly scored on a slant late in the half where he bounced off a hit by the DB, spun outside the defender and if not for his knee hitting the turf inside the one, he would have scored. Ryan wasn't afraid to target Douglas on a deep sideline fade in the fourth quarter despite Leodis McKelvin plastering Douglas at the boundary. Douglas drew a penalty late in the game that granted a spot of the ball at the Falcons' one and setup Steven Jackson's game-tying touchdown. Although Douglas dropped a crossing route that bounced off his hands in tight coverage inside the Bills' 20, he had a 20-yard screen pass where he got down hill fast thanks to a nice block from Roddy White to get inside the Bills' 23 in overtime and set up the game-winning field goal. Douglas should continue to draw single coverage and perhaps more intermediate and deep opportunities with a revitalized White forcing opposing defenses to respect the Atlanta passing attack.
2013 Week 14 vs GB (7 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
Due to the success of the run game, short fields during the first half, and the success of Roddy White, Douglas didn't earn a target until the fourth quarter. The first target was a comeback in the mid-fourth quarter for a first down and then a four-yard gain on a 2nd and 6 crossing route on the same drive. Douglas earned the final target of the game, a 25-yard out where Matt Ryan tried to force the ball with 11 seconds left and down by a point and Green Bay's duo of Sam Shields and Jarrett Bush undercut. Bush earned the interception to seal the game.
2013 Week 15 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 37 / 0 rec)
Douglas saw his usual meal of crossing routes, jerk routes, and screen passes in this game. The longest target Douglas earned was a seam route that Matt Ryan overthrew due to pressure in the passing lane and the result was an interception. Douglas was also stuffed on a short screen just outside the tackle box. Otherwise, Douglas remains a high-target, low-yardage option with the occasional big-play in the open field on a crossing route.
2013 Week 16 vs SF (9 / 5 / 46 / 0 rec)
Douglas and his typical outing as a slot receiver, making important plays to the team but not doing much for fantasy owners. Douglas' best play in the first half was a crossing route from left to right on third down where he cut inside a Tony Gonzalez block and burst past the free defenders for the first down for an 11-yard gain. The most important play Douglas made wasn't a positive one: a short in-cut versus an all-out blitz late in the fourth quarter inside the 49ers 10. DB Trumaine Brock anticipated the route, came over top to deliver a hit as Douglas got his hands on the target, and the blow knocked the ball skyward for Navorro Bowman to rebound at the 49ers 11. Bowman returned the interception 89 yards for a game-sealing play. Douglas continues to provide a solid underneath presence with burst and decent hands, but he's not earning deeper routes. One reason was due to a lack of quality pass protection, but Douglas also lacks the top-end speed to win versus anything but play action.
2013 Week 17 vs CAR (9 / 7 / 58 / 0 rec)
Douglas continued to feast on crossing routes during this game. He broke the wrong way on a perimeter route on a pass deep in Atlanta's own territory and the result was a Melvin White interception for a touchdown. Douglas also dropped a short in-cut, but Carolina delivered a low hit to Matt Ryan's knees in the pocket to nullify the mistake. However on the next play, Douglas made a fingertip grab on a crossing route for a nice gain nullified by the right guard's holding penalty. Douglas is good for occasional big plays in the passing game when he can run through an open zone on crossing routes or earn a mismatch on a play action pass deep. However, expecting Douglas to develop into a primary option as Roddy White ages is too optimistic.
2012 Week 1 vs KC (4 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
Douglas was the beneficiary of the greatness of Jones and White, catching short passes underneath and sprinting up the field because no one was in the vicinity. He did have a bad drop, and failed to beat his man to the marker the only time he was in a one on one situation for a first down. Still, he looks like he will benefit greatly from those around him.
2012 Week 2 vs DEN (3 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas played an important role for the Falcons as Julio Jones struggled. Douglas first reception came on a bootleg when he was wide open running in front of Matt Ryan. Douglas sprinted forward for nine yards but couldn't beat the first defender in his way. Despite being known as a speedster, Douglas did good work underneath. He was brave in the redzone when he caught a pass over the middle before sustaining a big hit and holding onto the ball at the one yard line. His final reception was a wide open catch, on a curl route after play action, that went for eight yards.
2012 Week 3 vs SD (2 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Despite the efficiency of the Atlanta passing game, Douglas had an extremely quiet game, catching just two short passes and never coming close to scoring.
2012 Week 5 vs WAS (5 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
The versatile slot receiver took an end around for a five-yard gain, shaking multiple defenders and showing a solid burst of speed. Douglas also had two catches for thirty-four yards, including a precision grab on a nineteen-yard seam route.
2012 Week 6 vs OAK (7 / 5 / 37 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas had 5 catches for 37 yards, and operated in his usual shorter route mode of attack. It's worth noting that 3 of Douglas's catches were for 4 yards or less, and his big gain of 20 yards was actually a spectacular display of concentration. On the grab, a defensive back deflected the ball in the air, and Douglas dove for the deflection and caught it before it hit the ground. If not for that, his line would have read 4 catches for 17 yards. Douglas only had 2 targets thrown his way that weren't completed, but unfortunately, one of them was an underthrown ball that was intercepted.
2012 Week 9 vs DAL (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Douglas was targeted twice against Dallas but finished the game without a reception. Both of his targets came on quick passes as he ran short routes.
2012 Week 10 vs NO (7 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)
The Falcons' slot receiver caught four passes from Matt Ryan for forty-nine yards, including a leaping twenty-three yard grab up the seam of the Saints' defense. Ryan actually leaned quite heavily on Douglas in the two minute drill, hitting him on several quick out route passes. Douglas came a yard short of scoring his first touchdown of the season on a short pass from Ryan, but the Saints dragged him down just before the goal line.
2012 Week 11 vs ARI (6 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas showed up many times in crucial moments of the game on Sunday to provide some relief for QB Ryan. Douglas has always been known as an explosive slot WR that can get down the field quickly and make big catches on third down. Douglas got his hands on many kinds of passes including a crossing route that he secured and turned upfield for a big gain. Douglas got many yards after the catch on Sunday as he was often wide open due to his speed and difficult nature to tackle in the open field. Douglas even showed some power as he broke a tackle on the outside on a quick out pattern and secured a first down. He then got down the seam quickly and leaped high for a strike from QB Ryan to help seal the victory. Douglas helped Ryan to convert third downs against the Cardinals, took some pressure off of WR White/Jones and was a very handy tool for ATL to use. He will never be the #1/#2 WR as long as White and Jones are playing but he has big play potential everytime he touches the ball gets a lot of targets from the slot position.
2012 Week 12 vs TB (3 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)
Douglas' first reception went for six yards after he was left open in the flat. Douglas' second reception was almost identical to his first, but this time he was knocked out of bounds by a defender opposed to going out on his own. He did follow that up with a defensive pass interference penalty in the endzone.
2012 Week 15 vs NYG (3 / 3 / 83 / 0 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Harry Douglas made many explosive plays on Sunday and the Giants paid for not paying him close enough attention in the passing game. Douglas' first catch came on the sideline as he broke free from coverage, hauled in a good ball from Ryan and exploded down the field for many yards after the catch. Douglas then got a big pass to the outside first a first down. He continued his hot streak by burning NYG DB's down the seam on another big gain through the air. Douglas is not big or physical on the field but has the quickness to run around defenders and the speed to run by defenders. He can be an excellent complement to Jones/White if defenses leave him isolated as they double cover his teammates instead. Douglas burned defenders who let him loose down the field and gave the Giants defensive coordinator another thing to worry about when calling plays.
2012 Week 16 vs DET (2 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas secured both receptions on short screens. During the second quarter, Atlanta called Douglas' number on a 1st-and-20 play. Atlanta targeted Douglas on a wide receiver screen, but he was unable to make the first defender miss. During the next drive, Douglas' number was called again, but he was only able to secure a five-yard gain.
2012 Week 17 vs TB (8 / 4 / 21 / 1 rec)
Douglas ended his season-long touchdown drought against Tampa Bay to close the season, but did very little else on his eight targets. His score came from a bunch formation in the red zone where Douglas got lost by the coverage. The quick out route turned into a touchdown when Douglas got near the sideline and no defender was there to prevent him from turning up the field on fourth-and-goal. That score pulled Atlanta to down five with time to mount a comeback. Douglas' two opportunities to produce a bigger game were missed connections with Matt Ryan. Both targets were down the seam, once a back shoulder throw was not timed well between the pair, the other a flat-out drop by Douglas that hit him in the hands. Douglas is the clear no.3 receiver in Atlanta, but has not taken advantage of all the single coverage inside he sees this season. With just four touchdowns in four seasons, Douglas' upside is limited to a bye-week starter at best if White or Jones misses time.
2012 Week 19 vs SEA (3 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)
Atlanta's steady slot receiver caught two passes for twenty-nine yards on three targets, including a twenty-two yard corner route reception, which started the drive that set up kicker Matt Bryant's game-winning field goal for the Falcons.
2012 Week 20 vs SF (0 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)
Douglas did not see a target until the fourth quarter, but made three receptions, including one of the few controversial plays of the game. After the defensive back fell on the play, Douglas made a diving catch that was challenged. The ball was moving as Douglas rolled on the ground, but remained a catch, sending Jim Harbaugh through the Georgia Dome roof in disbelief. After Douglas' final catch, a quick out, he came up limping. He stayed in the game following that play.
2011 Week 2 vs PHI (2 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Douglas was silent until the 4th quarter when the speedy slot receiver made a couple of receptions on a late TD drive. Douglas was not involved much throughout the game as the Falcons opted for more power formations versus the Eagles secondary.
2011 Week 3 vs TB (7 / 5 / 35 / 0 rec)
Was used on a lot of short patterns, check downs, and hot routes. He is not really stretching the field and they have Julio Jones that can do that. Douglas likes to work the slot and the Falcons had him working underneath routes when he was on the field. In the 3rd quarter the Falcons did make an effort to get him some touches as he ran behind the LOS and came out the other side of the field where Ryan threw a mini screen to him and he gained a first down on that play. On the same drive he found a soft spot in the middle of the Bucs defense for a wide open first down but you do notice that he wasn't interested in gaining additional yards and just got on the ground quickly where other WRs that have more size would have tried to gain a few more yards.
2011 Week 5 vs GB (5 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Douglas got more opportunities after Julio's injury. On one play, Douglas caught a deep out from Ryan and then streaked upfield for 47 yards. Unfortunately for him and the Falcons, a holding penalty negated the pretty play. Then in the 4th quarter, Ryan hit Douglas on the sideline for what would have been a big first down, but Douglas was unable to maintain possession and the Falcons were forced to punt.
2011 Week 6 vs CAR (4 / 2 / 57 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas played in relief of rookie star WR Julio Jones today, but failed to fill the void vacated by Jones with his play. Douglas was targeted a few times by Ryan early, including a deep shot which was overthrown. Douglas failed to generate much separation and the Falcons' plan was clearly to pound it on the ground. Douglas made a crucial 34-yard reception late when he took a shallow crossing route, tiptoed up the right sideline and ran for an extra 20+ yards. It showcased his excellent speed in the open field and the kind of situations where he can succeed.
2011 Week 7 vs DET (7 / 4 / 62 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas contributed to his team well on Sunday and made an impact but his fantasy day was still limited and he was not able to come up with a score. Douglas caught some short passes including one in the flat for a first down but his biggest play came on a pass down the middle. Douglas was able to haul in a big catch on a slant pattern as he gained big separation from this man and ran deep into DET territory. Douglas got swarmed eventually and taken down before he could score but really showed he has play making potential even if it only shows up now and again.
2011 Week 10 vs NO (14 / 8 / 133 / 0 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Harry Douglas' made a big catch halfway through the game that really must have caught QB Ryan's eye. Douglas just grabbed enough of the nose of the football to haul in a catch over the middle between defenders and turned on the jets to turn this into a big run downfield to set up a Falcons scoring opportunity. Douglas then began to have a complete onslaught of catches against the Saints over the middle as QB Ryan recognised the match up problem he posed the Saints. Douglas has above average speed and was able to attack the deep middle of the field, often on consecutive pass plays. He really ripped up the Saints secondary on all of his catches as they could not figure out how to stop him. Douglas almost had a day to remember as Ryan was trying to hit him deep down the field in OT but under threw Douglas and the pass fell to the ground.
2011 Week 11 vs TEN (4 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec)
Douglas filled in for the injured Julio Jones and performed admirably. With Tony Gonzales and Roddy White punishing the Titans defensive backs all day, Douglas was left to catch the scraps. He primarily ran drag routes and quick slants in an effort to loosen up the middle for Michael Turner and Tony Gonzales. Douglas's best play came on Michael Turner's 35 yard run. On the play, Douglas was lined up to the left and helped seal off the Titans cornerback from making a tackle, thus springing Turner for the big gain.
2011 Week 12 vs MIN (5 / 2 / 45 / 1 rec)
Harry Douglas has come down to earth after a few big performances this year but still gives a very solid fantasy day for his owners despite limited touches and looks in this offense. Ryan missed Douglas open at the beginning of the game but came back to him later in first half. Ryan found Douglas on a slant and Douglas used above average quickness to break poor arm tackles and race to the pylon for the touchdown. Douglas had some more catches for first downs but he was overshadowed by WR White in this game. White had a truly dominant performance and Ryan will almost always look to White first before continuing his progression to guys like WR Douglas or WR Jones. Douglas is a big threat to score whenever he touches the ball however and could have at least one more big game in him before the season is over.
2011 Week 13 vs HOU (5 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
Douglas chipped in with four catches on a day when the Falcons seemed to abandon the run almost as fast as the game began. Despite Tony Gonzales, Roddy White, and Julio Jones being the feature pieces of the passing game, Douglas does manage to catch a number of short out patterns and hook routes 6-9 yards down field.
2011 Week 14 vs CAR (3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas had only a couple of receptions in this game, both coming off motion across the field. The Panthers covered both well and they went for minimal gain.
2011 Week 15 vs JAX (1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Douglas manned his usual slot position but game script didn't really allow him much of an opportunity during this blow out. When Ryan is pressured Douglas is his first check down option and they seem to have good chemistry together.
2011 Week 16 vs NO (1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
Douglas only had one target this evening catching it for a 3-yard gain. Douglas did look like got dinged up during the game.
2010 Week 2 vs ARI (8 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec, 1 / -5 / 0 rush)
After missing all of 2009, Douglas is the forgotten man by many in the fantasy world. He still is obviously working his way into the offense, as evidenced by his 2 receptions. But Douglas brings a dynamic to this offense that no one else has. He is extremely fast and quick. He had a beautiful 18 yard reception in the 2nd half that showcased his talent. He took a quick comeback pass by Matt Ryan, caught it, and instantly spun away from the defender and upfield for an 18 yard gain. His quickness on that play was phenomenal, and it's obvious that he is going to be worked more and more into the gameplan. I also noticed that he is receiving a decent amount of attention from the defense. One one play, Douglas went deep and drew two defenders, which allowed Finneran to get a key 3rd down due to the coverage being rolled to Douglas. Opposing coaches know this guys is dangerous. He's still not a player that you want starting for you, but keep a close eye on this little guy, as if he can develop into the 2ndoption for Matt Ryan, his stats could really take off.
2010 Week 3 vs NO (5 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Douglas' stat line might look pathetic but it's worth noting that two of his catches were nullified for various reasons. The first was a mid-range reception which was overturned because it was ruled that Douglas did not have possession and the second was a 17-yard catch that was called back because of a penalty. Douglas was very close to having three receptions for about 35ish yards on the day.
2010 Week 4 vs SF (8 / 3 / 59 / 1 rec)
Harry Douglas scored a touchdown on his first catch of the game, as he caught a pass on a quick out from Ryan and dove into the endzone. It was a good job by Douglas to get to the pylon in a hurry. Douglas' biggest catch of the day in terms of yardage was his 34 yard gain on a shallow crosser, in which he used his acceleration to burst up the sideline. Douglas also made a very important catch on a 3rd down on the Falcons final possession to keep the drive alive. It was a decent game from the young receiver, who is the speedy receiver that the Falcons need in this offense.
2010 Week 5 vs CLE (2 / 2 / 17 / 0 rec)
Douglas should be giving his starting job back to Michael Jenkins next week. His slippery speed failed to make much of an impact in this game. He might be more dangerous as a full-time slot receiver anyway.
2010 Week 6 vs PHI (6 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas was pushed back to his third wide receiver status with the return of Michael Jenkins. Douglas had six targets in Week 6 against the Eagles, but Atlanta threw 42 times so the numbers are a little skewed with the Falcons in full-blown comeback mode after falling down 21-0 in the first half. Two of his catches, including his long of 18-yards, came in the final minute of the first half in a two-minute drill. Douglas' role is now minimized as the third receiver.
2010 Week 10 vs BAL (4 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas caught one pass against the Ravens but was most notable in what he didn't do. Douglas was targeted on two key third downs but was unable to make seemingly easy catches that would have kept drives alive. Douglas was in single-coverage all night as the Ravens sought to keep the ball from Roddy White. Unfortunately, he was unable to produce much despite the favorable defensive scheme.
2010 Week 12 vs GB (3 / 2 / 7 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas was targeted on a fade route, but he was unable to locate the ball which wasn't thrown in the most catchable place for Douglas.
2010 Week 14 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 46 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas' lone reception of the game came early on with the Panthers in a dime defense. Ryan saw the matchup of Douglas on rookie CB Robert McClain and went right to it, perfectly hitting Douglas in stride for a 46 yard completion. Douglas' speed is an asset this offense should try to use more in the future.
2010 Week 15 vs SEA (3 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Douglas is the fourth option for Ryan in a run heavy offense and will struggle to put any up numbers right now, barring a big play.
2010 Week 17 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 19 / 0 rec)
Douglas looked great on a short pass that he turned into a 19 yard gain. But that was his only opportunity of the game. With so much talent ahead of him on the depth chart, that won't be changing anytime soon.
2008 Week 1 vs DET (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 7 / 0 rush)
The flashy rookie carried a reverse for seven yards.
2008 Week 3 vs KC (2 / 2 / 10 / 0 rec, 1 / -8 / 0 rush)
Douglas caught both balls thrown his way, for short gains. He was also featured on a reverse, but was stopped for negative eight yards.
2008 Week 4 vs CAR (5 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)
Douglas caught two short passes for eight yards. One of the receptions was a nice grab in traffic, but Douglas also dropped two passes, including a key one that would have given Atlanta a first down in Carolina territory. He was the targeted receiver on Matt Ryan's intercepted pass that resulted in a touchdown for Carolina. However, the play was negated by a penalty.
2008 Week 5 vs GB (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 18 / 0 rush)
Douglas' only touch of the game came in the first quarter when he took an end around for a gain of 18 yards.
2008 Week 6 vs CHI (6 / 5 / 96 / 0 rec, 1 / -11 / 0 rush)
Rookie Harry Douglas gave the offense a spark, catching five of his six targets for 96 yards. Showing some excellent deep speed, fellow rookie Matt Ryan found Douglas deep down the middle for a beautiful 47 yard gain. He was also used on an end around, though it went for negative 11 yards. He played behind Michael Jenkins, but gives Ryan a more dynamic vertical threat to look to opposite Roddy White.
2008 Week 8 vs PHI (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 2 / 10 / 0 rush)
Douglas was targeted for a deep ball and also ran an end around for a very short gain.
2008 Week 9 vs OAK (1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
The rookie who made Joe Horn expendable saw limited playing time. He caught one pass in the first quarter and tried a reverse in the third quarter that only gained two yards. He also averaged 6.5 yards on two punt returns.
2008 Week 12 vs CAR (6 / 4 / 92 / 0 rec, 2 / 3 / 1 rush)
Douglas was the player of the day, scoring from both the ground and via the punt return, and just missing a touchdown through the air as he was pulled down from behind. Though he went untouched on his 61 yard punt return, perhaps his most impressive play of the day was a sixty-nine yard catch where he caught a fifteen yard pass over the left side, then spun away from the defenders and began sprinting down the sidelines where he was caught inside the ten. The Falcons showed an interest in getting Douglas involved, especially with Jerious Norwood at less than 100%.
2008 Week 13 vs SD (3 / 3 / 13 / 1 rec)
Douglas had a very up and down performance. After last week's breakout game, a lot of people were interested to see how he'd do now that he was a little more of a known commodity. Early on, it appeared he was trying to do a bit too much on a punt return. He started making a move before securing the ball, and muffed the punt away to the Chargers. That led to a San Diego touchdown. But he made up for that gaffe with a 32 yard punt return with his next opportunity (he fielded the punt return following the fumble and was not replaced for any plays). Later in the game, he capped his afternoon with a wide open touchdown reception on third down from five yards out that put Atlanta up by nine.
2008 Week 14 vs NO (3 / 2 / 45 / 0 rec)
Harry Douglas provides the Falcons passing offense with a deep downfield threat that is able to stretch the defense and keep them from rotating coverage toward Roddy White. His first reception came on a deep fade route where he just outhustled the defensive back for the ball. The final pass thrown in his direction was on a wide receiver screen that he weaved his way through traffic for a key 17 yard gain on their final scoring drive.
2008 Week 16 vs MIN (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Harry Douglas only had eight total yards today. His one run was an end around.
2008 Week 17 vs STL (3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
The rookie who made Joe Horn expendable caught one pass for six yards. His other target was a poorly thrown pass which sailed high and behind him. He reached back, tipped the ball up in the air, and the Rams' Jason Craft intercepted the ball.
2008 Week 18 vs ARI (2 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Douglas fielded three punts and averaged 10.3 yards per return and caught one pass for zero yards.
