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 could help on offense

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 11:12:02 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Devin Hester could become a weapon on offense, because he has worked with the wide receivers during training camp, according to offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. "I've been very happy, as have all of the coaches, with how Devin has taken to the wide receiver stuff. [Wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie] has done an awesome job with him and the other receivers have helped him. Devin is going to be an exciting player, definitely a weapon that we added in the offseason that's going to help."

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.

The Atlanta Falcons agreed to terms with WR Devin Hester (Bears) on a three-year contract Thursday, March 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Hester does not really have a lot of fantasy value since his value is on special teams. He could make the Falcons D/ST a bit more attractive.
