It's Harry Douglas time in Atlanta
Douglas was supposed to figure into the Falcons' slot receiver role last year, but a torn ACL a year and four days ago ended his campaign before it began. Nothing against the reliable Jenkins, who has reached 50 receptions each of the past three seasons and does yeoman's work as a blocker, but we already have a good idea what he can do, and it isn't much. He has scored eight touchdowns in three seasons. I suppose in deep leagues he's a bye-week fill-in, but not much more. Roddy White is a top-10 fantasy wide receiver and he doesn't miss games, and tight end Tony Gonzalez remains a huge factor, especially near the goal-line, more than nearly every tight end in the league. Despite standing 6-foot-5, Jenkins has rarely been an effective red-zone target. His lone touchdown in 2009 was a 50-yarder.
To see why Eric likes Harry Douglas for this season, you must be an ESPN Insider.
