It was tough to see that Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones suffer a foot injury that cost him the entire season, but his injury has led to the emergence of WR Harry Douglas, who appears to be the player who sees his value boosted the most with Jones out.

That’s a lot of production to make up for, as Jones was the second or third best WR in the league when he went down, but Douglas was able to put up Julio Jones-type numbers in Sunday’s win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

At the end of the first-half, Douglas was sitting on six catches for 140 yards and a touchdown as the Falcons built a comfortable 24-10 lead.
