Until Harry Douglas finds meaningful playing time this fall, Fantasy owners shouldn't bother adding him to rosters
Douglas didn't record a reception in Saturday's 35-14, divisional-round loss to New England. This performance was in line with expectations for Douglas, who recorded just one catch all season while serving as Tennessee's fifth wide receiver. After nine seasons between the Falcons and Titans, the 33-year-old free agent will look to latch on with a new team this offseason. There's no guarantee Douglas is even able to stay in the league, let alone contribute noteworthy numbers next season.
Douglas (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Since coming off injured reserve to make his season debut in Week 12, Douglas has played just 23 offensive snaps, with only one catch for eight yards to show for it. He'll be a healthy scratch for the second straight week and doesn't look like he'll be active the rest of the season unless one of the top four wideouts on the depth chart succumbs to an injury.
Douglas made an eight-yard catch on three targets in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts. Douglas' return from IR coincided with a hamstring injury to Rishard Matthews, which is why the depth wideout saw some burn in this one. Even if Matthews remains sidelined moving forward, teammates Corey Davis, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor all offer more value at the wide receiver position than Douglas.
Douglas (knee) was officially activated of injured reserve Saturday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports. Douglas has spent the entire reason on IR, and does not expect to have much a role on the offense right away. The veteran figures to provide depth at receiver as well as offer experience to his fellow pass catchers. Look for him to suit up Sunday assuming he avoids any setbacks.
Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday that the team won't make a decision on activating Douglas (knee) from injured reserve until later in the week, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Douglas has been on IR all season and presumably won't have much of a role in Tennessee offense whenever he's deemed ready to play. He's been practicing this week, perhaps eyeing Sunday's game in Indianapolis for his first appearance of the season. The 33-year-old won't be any higher than fourth or fifth on the wideout depth chart.
