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.

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.
