Falcons | Devin Hester catches five passes

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 23:40:38 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Devin Hester caught five passes for 99 yards Sunday, Sept. 7, against the New Orleans Saints. Hester did not catch a single pass last year while with the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: As if quarterback Matt Ryan needed any more offensive help, Hester's good outing could bode well for Week 2 and beyond. Hester's Week 1 price on FantasyScore was $3,700, which was 7.4 percent of the salary cap, and it might rise a bit following this outing.

Falcons | Devin Hester to be used creatively

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 13:49:03 -0700

The Atlanta Falcons plan to use WR Devin Hester in "creative ways" this season. He played both wide receiver and defensive back in his time with the Chicago Bears, although he didn't play receiver last season.

Fantasy Tip: Hester could be used as a wide receiver, but he's unlikely to see enough targets to be relevant for fantasy gamers. His biggest asset continues to be his return skills on special teams.
