Redskins | Leonard Hankerson receiving praise

Washington Redskins WR Leonard Hankerson received praise from the coaching staff, particularly head coach Mike Shanahan, after his Week 1 performance against the Philadelphia Eagles. Hankerson had five catches for 80 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. "He needs some playing time. He's got to have some consistency, like he did (Monday) night to make those plays. He did a great job in the red zone. He ran an excellent route. What a lot of people don't see is the routes he is running and when he doesn't get the ball and he's open. That's what you are impressed with."

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson will be a popular waiver wire target this week after his solid performance in the opener. He should continue to be a nice red zone weapon for Robert Griffin III, and Hankerson's value this year could be consistent with the Redskins preferring RG3 not to run as often. Consider adding him to fortify your WR depth.
