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.

WR Devin Aromashodu is in the mix for a job, and then there is seventh-round pick Marquess Wilson and WR Devin Hester, who is more known for his prowess as a return man. The team is likely to keep five receivers plus Hester.
Mon, 15 Jul 2013 10:11:57 -0700
