Douglas out for Week 8 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Titans WR Harry Douglas (ribs) is out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Justin Hunter — not Dorial Green-Beckham — served as the #2 WR with Douglas out last week. Neither is a Week 8 fantasy option.

Recent Shark Bites

Titans WR Harry Douglas (ribs) is out for Sunday's game against the Falcons.  That'll force Tennessee to give impressive rookie Dorial Green-Beckham more playing time.  He's averaging 15.3 yards per catch and has scored on 2 of his 6 grabs.  DGB is on the WR3 flier radar and is an intriguing DFS tournament play.

Titans WR Harry Douglas is dealing with a rib injury that has his Week 7 status uncertain, according to HC Ken Whisenhunt.  "We'll see how he progresses during the week," Whiz said. "Those ribs are tricky things. We'll see how he feels when we get to Friday and maybe Saturday."  Douglas is far off the fantasy radar, but his absence would open up more playing time for impressive rookie WR Dorial Green-Beckham.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Titans have reached a 3-year deal with free-agent WR Harry Douglas. The 30-year-old (31 in September) spent most of his 7 years in Atlanta as the #3 wideout, filling in as a starter when Julio Jones or Roddy White went down. In Tennessee, Douglas could climb the depth chart in a shaky WR corps. That said, if Justin Hunter develops and Kendall Wright continues to be at least solid, then Douglas will provide depth in a lower-volume, less explosive passing game. At this point, we're not interested in his fantasy stock.

Pro Football Talk reports that the Falcons have cut WR Harry Douglas. It's a somewhat surprising move for a productive #3 WR heading into the final year of his contract. We have to assume it's a cap decision, as Douglas' release appears to save Atlanta more than $3 million against the 2015 salary cap. Douglas will turn 31 in September but should have little trouble finding a new team this offseason. His landing spot will determine his immediate fantasy outlook. Devin Hester and Drew Davis look like the top current candidates to assume the Falcons' #3 wideout role. We're not too excited about either.

Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) is active for this morning's game in London. We still wouldn't use him in any but desperate fantasy situations. But having his #3 WR available can only help QB Matt Ryan's (still unattractive) fantasy outlook against Detroit.
