Titans beat writer Jim Wyatt:

Hakeem Nicks didn’t have a great offseason. He was overweight and just didn’t impress me that much. But he’s changed my mind early in training camp. He’s been making plays on a regular basis, and stood out. Still, it’s hard to say what kind of impact he’ll make. Kendall Wright and Harry Douglas will be on the field a lot, along with Justin Hunter. If he keeps performing, the Titans will have to gets Nicks on the field. How fast Dorial Green-Beckham develops will have an impact on his playing time as well, too, though.

Fantasy Impact:

It appears that Hunter is hanging on with Green-Beckham struggling to pick up the offense quickly. Nicks is the dark horse after a rough season in Indianapolis. The two dependable options in the Tennessee passing game are Kendall Wright and Delanie Walker.

Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham 'is a work in progress'

Titans writer Jim Wyatt on the receiving corps:

Kendall Wright and Harry Douglas are proven commodities, and Hakeem Nicks has had a good camp so far. He has an impressive resume, and it looks like he’ll be a factor this fall. The Titans have liked what they’ve seen from Hunter in camp. I think he’s in the top three. Dorial Green-Beckham is a work in progress. We’ll all know a lot more about his chances to contribute early after the preseason, but some patience might be needed with him. There’s no doubt he’s very talented.

Fantasy Impact:

If Green-Beckham picks up things quickly and proves he’s not as raw as his detractors say — one offensive coordinator said he was “completely lost” at the whiteboard in a pre-draft interview — he could certainly make an impact early in the season, but it sounds like he's more of a project than an NFL-ready receiver. It was interesting to hear that Wyatt believes that Hunter is in the top three.

For a quarterback, 7-on-7 work is supposed to be easier than 11-on-11 drills. There is no pass rush. There is no crowd to see over or around. Receivers should win matchups and provide open targets.

But in the Tennessee Titans' Monday night practice it didn't work that way for Marcus Mariota during red zone work.

In a 7-on-7 drill, he hit Bishop Sankey and then missed on three throws in a row: He missed Hakeem Nicks in the end zone, threw out of bounds to a well-covered Kendall Wright in the back right corner of the end zone and threw a bad pass I think was aimed for Harry Douglas but might have been intended for Delanie Walker behind him.

But in the full team red zone period that followed, Mariota's fuse got re-lit.

A dump off to tight end Craig Stevens created a chance for him to bounce into the end zone. A slant to Douglas for a touchdown. A hard roll out to the right and a dart to Wright at the front corner of the end zone.

Kendall Wright 'clearly the top receiver' in Titans camp

ESPN - [Full Article]

Kendall Wright is clearly the top receiver and Hakeem Nicks got the bulk of the work opposite Wright. But the second snap of many series featured two new guys, including Harry Douglas, Justin Hunter and Green-Beckham.

Fantasy Impact:

Wright is a good value in the 9th or 10th round, especially in PPR formats. The team needs to find a starter on the other side. Nicks is the overlooked vet, but it didn't seem like he had a whole lot left given the way he played in Indianapolis last season. Still, he's just 27 years old and shouldn't be washed up just yet. Green-Beckham is a physical specimen, but is very raw. Hunter has had a disappointing career, and is dealing with an off-the-field issue (felonious assault). Douglas is an unexciting vet who could end up with a big role if things break his way.

Harry Douglas: Marcus Mariota has 'unbelievable accuracy'

Monday, July 6, 2015, 1:43pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft, Oregon star QB Marcus Mariota was billed as a "project," bound to struggle with the transition from a college spread offense to a pro style. After an impressive showing in offseason practices, though, the Tennessee Titans have reason to believe Mariota will find instant success as a rookie. Veteran receiver Harry Douglas recently raved about the "unbelievable accuracy" Mariota showcased in OTAs and minicamp. "I feel like Marcus has done everything he needs to do to get the ball to his receivers," Douglas added, via ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky.

Fantasy Impact:

Mariota also drew praise from wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson who said Mariota has been "deadly accurate" in practices. Of course it's only practice. Mariota ranks just 26th on our QB list but certainly has a chance to improve on that. However, the Titans group of WRs isn't all that impressive. Kendell Wright ranks the highest at just 45th on our WR list. He's joined by Justin Hunter (70th), Dorial Green-Beckham (89th), Douglas (101st) and Hakeem Nicks (142nd).

Titans agree to terms with WR Hakeem Nicks

Friday, April 24, 2015, 1:38pm

Tennessean - [Full Article]

The Titans have agreed to terms on a deal for former Colts receiver Hakeem Nicks, according to sources familiar with the situation.

"I'm nowhere near finished, man, and I want to prove that to the world and everybody," Nicks told FOX Sports' Mike Garafalo recently. "That's definitely my mentality, but I don't even want to talk about it. I feel like I got into that situation last year talking about it. I'm about to just go out there and prove it.

"I can't even describe the feeling to you. It's like a burning sensation inside of me. I just want to be the best. I know I have to work hard at it; it's something that's in me. It's just in me and takes over me."

Fantasy Impact:

Nicks was underwhelming in Indianapolis, catching only 55% of his targets while posting 38 catches for 405 yards and four touchdowns. The Titans also added Harry Douglas this offseason, so he and Nicks will join a receiving corps that already includes Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter. There isn't much fantasy value here.

Schefter: Titans sign WR Harry Douglas

Titans are signing former Falcons WR Harry Douglas to a 3-year deal, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

This signing is somewhat puzzling since the Titans already have a superior slot receiver in Kendall Wright. In Atlanta, Douglas performed well when called upon, but struggled in 2014 due to a foot injury.

Falcons cut WR Harry Douglas

Friday, February 27, 2015, 10:33am

Rand Getlin, Twitter - [Full Article]

WR Harry Douglas has been released by the Falcons, per a league source.

Fantasy Impact:

Even though he missed four games with a foot injury, Douglas was set to make $3.5 million in the final season of his contract and offered a relatively cheap insurance policy for Roddy White. It's possible that the Falcons plan to upgrade the position to prepare for White's retirement. This year's crop of free agent receivers is deep and talented.

Friday, December 26, 2014, 6:53pm

Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 17. Douglas should play, but doesn’t have much fantasy appeal with both Julio Jones and Roddy White expected to play.

Julio Jones' availability will be based on pregame workout

Saturday, December 20, 2014, 11:22am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Last week, the Falcons waited until Sunday morning to decide whether receiver Julio Jones would play despite a hip injury. This week, it’ll be the same routine.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Jones’ availability for Sunday’s showdown with the Saints will hinge on the Sunday morning pre-game workout.

Fantasy Impact:

Jones wants to play and the Falcons sure need him. In his last two games played, Jones generated 448 receiving yards, with a whopping 259 yards coming in a Monday night loss to the Packers. Between the performances with Jones and the team’s struggles without him, the fourth-year wideout from Alabama is laying the foundation for a major payday at some point during the 2015 offseason, the story said. If Jones can't go, Harry Douglas would shape up to be a very good option again.

Friday, December 19, 2014, 6:02pm

Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 16. If Julio Jones is back, Douglas won’t be startable, but he’s a WR2-type if Jones remains out. Stay tuned on Sunday morning.

Friday, December 19, 2014, 6:02pm

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 16. Jones is likely a game-time decision on Sunday, per HC Mike Smith. If he plays, expect him to be ranked as a WR2, depending on the pregame reports from the Atlanta/New Orleans beat writers. If he’s out, Harry Douglas and Roddy White would both be top 25 plays against a shaky New Orleans secondary. The Falcons play early on Sunday.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. If Julio Jones is back, Douglas won’t be startable, but he’s a WR2-type if Jones remains out.

Thursday, December 18, 2014, 6:14pm

Falcons WR Julio Jones (hip) missed practice again Thursday. Jones may be a game-time decision on Sunday, per HC Mike Smith. If he’s out, Harry Douglas is a solid WR2. The Falcons play early on Sunday.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 5:57pm

Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) did not practice Wednesday. Douglas typically rests on Wednesdays after suffering this foot injury. If Julio Jones is back, Douglas won’t be startable, but he’s a WR2-type if Jones remains out.
