DeMario Douglas’ Dynasty Value | Fantasy Outlook, Ranking, and More

DeMario Douglas’ dynasty value took a hit in 2023 due to the Patriots' struggles as a whole -- can the former sixth-round pick develop into an asset?

Not all players on your roster are going to be elite options. Much like in “real” sports, role players hold more importance than they are widely credited for, and DeMario Douglas’ dynasty fantasy football value is a fine example of that.

The sixth-round pick was held without a touchdown on his 70 targets as a rookie (49 receptions) in a New England Patriots offense that was stuck in the mud for the entire season. Before outright dismissing anyone from this struggling franchise, let’s use the data he provided us with in his first season to determine if there is more hope than the stat line initially suggests.

DeMario Douglas’ Dynasty Outlook

Douglas is a 5’8” slot receiver, a profile that isn’t overly friendly for fantasy purposes, regardless of the situation. Over the past decade, only two receivers that measured 5’8” or shorter have had 700+ receiving yards in a season (Cole Beasley did it three times while Andrew Hawkins did it once), and zero times over that stretch has such a receiver caught more than six touchdown passes.

The trends of our supersized NFL are working against Douglas being a stable fantasy option, and the Patriots’ offense pretty clearly isn’t positioned to help him elevate above those expectations.

Patriots QB rankings for 2023

  • 32nd in INT rate
  • 30th in passer rating
  • 30th in yards per attempt
  • 28th in TD rate

On the bright side, the QB play can’t get worse, right?

The lack of competition for targets is one thing that can keep Douglas on PPR radars, as he proved reasonably capable of earning looks during his time at Liberty and again flashed those skills in 2023.

We know that slot targets tend to be more accurate than perimeter ones, making that spot on the field one where Douglas is going to have to win consistently to prove to be viable. As a rookie, he saw 68.4% of his targets come when lined up in the slot, a rate that isn’t a surprise and should only grow with time. The encouraging part was his ability to turn routes into targets at a 24.3% clip in that alignment.

By no means am I suggesting that Douglas is going to be anywhere in the same sphere as those three receivers, but his rookie season is a bit more encouraging than the raw stat line suggests or that his current asking price indicates.

Should You Trade Douglas in Dynasty?

It’s going to take a perfect situation for Douglas to return weekly Flex production in anything but the deepest of leagues, and the trajectory of New England simply doesn’t hint at such a spot. He deserves to be rostered in dynasty formats given his age and potential to assume a lead role in one of today’s pass-centric offenses. But as far as the trade market goes, there isn’t enough value to move him.


Not every player on your dynasty roster has to have a clear path to greatness — it’s OK to take a step back and use another season to evaluate. Douglas’ target-earning abilities from the slot last season bought him another year of interest from me, understanding that he’s a deep stash that I won’t be relying on.

If you want to move him for a future draft pick, I get it. Just know that the type of future asset you’ll get in return for Douglas at this point is going to be a long-term piece that requires developing — exactly like the player you are giving up.
