Pros: Hester now has two years under his belt as a full-time receiver, and his catches and yardage has went up each of the past two seasons. He is expected to hold onto a starting job once again and be moved around a bit to create mismatches with defenders. He is lightning in a bottle when you put him in space, and the Mike Martz pass-friendly system will do just that. He fits the mold of what Martz likes in his receivers.

Cons: Hester is a better returner than receiver, as he is still growing into the position. He has caught just six touchdown passes combined the past two years, and staying healthy was a problem last season. The Bears will likely rotate in other receivers with different packages.

Fantasy tip: Hester isn't getting a ton of love from fantasy football players this year, as he still isn't going off the draft board until the 12th round, typically. That's actually a good value for him, and he brings some upside as a No. 4 receiver.
