Week 7 showed us that those with opportunity can produce. Jarrett Boykin filled in more than admirably for James Jones and Randall Cobb. Harry Douglas made the most of his opportunity to be the Falcons No. 1 wideout. But to top that off, we got a bunch of new injuries to send us scrambling to…… Continue reading Week 8 Pickups: Harry Douglas, Jarrett Boykin, and the attack of the injury fill-ins
