NFL | Devin Hester not retiring

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 12:08:20 -0700

Free-agent WR Devin Hester (Falcons) does not plan to retire from the NFL after being released by the Atlanta Falcons Tuesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Hester is washed up, but he could still provide a deep threat to a team in need of one. For now, leave him on waivers in traditional fantasy leagues.

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 07:22:10 -0700

Falcons | Several Falcons competing for return job

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:51:16 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WRs Devin Fuller, Aldrick Robinson and Eric Weems and RBs Tevin Coleman and Terron Ward are all under consideration to serve as the team's primary returner on kickoffs and punts if WR Devin Hester (toe) is unable to return to form in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: The 33-year-old Hester underwent surgery on his right big toe during the offseason and is still considered the favorite to return kicks and punts in 2016. Aside from his contributions on special teams, however, he doesn't offer much from a fantasy standpoint. Of the remaining players competing for the role, Weems has the most experience as a return man and would likely win the job if Hester is unable to be as effective as he was prior to getting injured.

Falcons | Devin Hester undergoes toe surgery

Mon, 18 Jan 2016 23:36:56 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR/KR Devin Hester (toe) had surgery on his right big toe Friday, Jan. 15, and he will need three to six months of recovery. He will wear a cast for three months before shedding it in favor of a walking boot. After a month in the boot, he'll begin actual rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Hester isn't much in terms of offensive production, but his health is vital for the return game and the value of the Falcons defense/special teams (DST) heading into 2016.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson to IR

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 11:17:22 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) was placed on Injured Reserve Friday, Dec. 4. WR Devin Hester (toe) was activated from the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson's season is over. TE Jacob Tamme ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should continue to have a role with the offense because the team has very little to throw to after Julio Jones. Tamme could be a midrange flyer worth taking on FantasyScore against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Falcons | Devin Hester doesn't practice

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 11:20:06 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Devin Hester (toe) did not practice Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Hester should be the Falcons' third or fourth option at wide receiver this year, with Leonard Hankerson also taking the third or fourth spot. Hester should only be drafted for depth.

Falcons | Devin Hester injury update

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 10:08:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Devin Hester (toe) did not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 9, because of a toe injury. Head coach Dan Quinn said Hester is expected to return to practice soon.

Fantasy Tip: Hester appears to be dealing with a minor injury, so he should return to practice in the near future. Owners should monitor his work during the preseason to have an idea of his role in the offense this season. Hester probably should not be selected in most drafts since he will see limited playing time.

Falcons | Devin Hester not practicing

Sun, 09 Aug 2015 08:22:24 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Devin Hester (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Hester's role in the passing game is uncertain at this point, so the team likely will use the preseason to determine his playing time. Hester likely will see limited playing time this season and should be avoided in drafts.

Falcons | Devin Hester not sure of role

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 10:24:25 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Devin Hester still doesn't know exactly what role he'll be playing in new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's offense. "We're just figuring out the offense, figuring out who fits best in what positions and what routes we're running," Hester said. "We're all fresh right now in the new offense, so we're trying to figure out who can run the best routes." Hester said there would be a clearer picture on who will be playing what roles towards the middle of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Hester will be playing behind Julio Jones and Roddy White, and possibly even Leonard Hankerson. He's still a decent deep threat and a good returner, so his fantasy value isn't completely gone, but he shouldn't be considered more than a WR5.
