Bills | Leonard Hankerson financials

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 17:17:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Leonard Hankerson's one-year deal is worth $840,000. It includes a $40,000 workout bonus, a $760,000 salary and a $40,000 53-man roster bonus.

Fantasy Tip: As it stands, there's no one worth starting, or even drafting, in the Bill's wide receiver corps aside from Sammy Watkins. Hankerson could work his way up to a decent role with Buffalo, but his fantasy value is minimal right now.

Bills | Leonard Hankerson in the mix

Sat, 26 Mar 2016 17:30:44 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Leonard Hankerson will be one of several receivers in the mix for the No. 3 receiver spot in 2016, and beat writer Tyler Dunne believes having a full year to learn the offense will help Hankerson.

Fantasy Tip: Even if he does open the year as Buffalo's No. 3 receiver, Hankerson would have little fantasy value in a run-heavy offense.

Bills | Leonard Hankerson signs with Bills

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 16:27:47 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Leonard Hankerson re-signed to a one-year deal Thursday, March 24. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Buffalo did need some more depth at wide receiver with Chris Hogan gone, so bringing Hankerson back is a good move. It's still hard to find impactful fantasy value, though, in that wide receiver corps with anyone not named Sammy Watkins. Don't view Hankerson as more than a WR5 at this point.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson waived from IR

Tue, 15 Dec 2015 12:33:14 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) was waived from the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Justin Hardy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should continue to see more looks with Hankerson gone, while Roddy White ($2,100, 4.2%) could also see more targets, but neither guy is worth starting on FantasyScore at this point.

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 | Leonard Hankerson, Matt Bryant out

Fri, 04 Dec 2015 09:28:17 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) have been ruled out for Week 13 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: With the Buccaneers secondary being very vulnerable, Roddy White ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) certainly becomes interesting as a deep sleeper with Hankerson out of action again. Expect Julio Jones ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) to be heavily owned, too.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson not ready

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 14:59:03 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) isn't practicing again Thursday, Dec. 3, and head coach Dan Quinn said Hankerson isn't ready to return yet. Hankerson has 26 catches for 327 yards and three touchdowns on the year. "Until he's ready and he's able to just haul and go, he's still going to be going through part of the process and going through the rehab to get back," Quinn said.

Fantasy Tip: With Hankerson ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) unlikely to return this weekend, Roddy White ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should peak your interest as a deep sleeper against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Julio Jones ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) should be money in the bank, too.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson, Matt Bryant out

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 14:53:10 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Both Hankerson ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) and Bryant seem to be fighting an uphill battle to play this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Look to Roddy White ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) as a sleeper play with the Bucs being a top-10 fantasy matchup for wideouts this year.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson, Matt Bryant sit

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 15:13:00 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will need to be monitored throughout the rest of the week. If he is unable to play then Roddy White would become a decent flyer for FantasyScore lineups. As for Bryant, there should be some viable starting kickers available on waivers if he doesn't play this weekend.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson to miss Week 12

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 09:54:16 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: TE Jacob Tamme ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) could be a midrange grab on FantasyScore with some value against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 08:59:42 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) is working off to the side Friday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a really iffy flex grab on FantasyScore against the Minnesota Vikings if he suits up.

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 11:27:12 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) was out of practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a really iffy flex grab on FantasyScore against the Minnesota Vikings if he suits up.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson not being rushed

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 15:08:15 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) is still bothered by a hamstring strain, and the Falcons may continue to take their time with his injury. Hankerson previously missed two games because of the injury before returning in Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) had a successful return last week and found the end zone in a nice matchup. This week against the Minnesota Vikings could be a taller task, especially if the Vikes want to ease him back in. Consider him a risky FantasyScore pick.

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 09:29:17 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) won't practice Wednesday, Nov. 25, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) caught a touchdown last week and could be a cheap flex option on FantasyScore against the Minnesota Vikings.

Falcons | Probable status for Hankerson

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 11:07:16 -0800

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 20, and is probable for Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Tip: Don't overlook the fact that Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is making his return after missing the last two games. Indy could be preoccupied with trying to stop Julio Jones on the outside, freeing up Hankerson for a big game. He certainly could return excellent value at his FantasyScore price.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson will play

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 09:57:21 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) will play Sunday, Nov. 22, against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is quite a gamble, but with Vontae Davis likely to shadow Julio Jones, things could open up for Hankerson. He's a wild card flyer on FantasyScore.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson limited

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 15:10:43 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will need to be tracked this weekend as he has missed the last few games. If he plays, he may be rusty and not see as many targets as usual, so it might be best to wait at least a week before starting him again.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson praised by QB

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 22:07:46 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) returned to the practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Nov. 18, and QB Matt Ryan was very glad to have one of his weapons back. "Hank has had a great year for us when he's been able to go," Ryan said, "and I think having him back opens up a lot of things for everybody. It makes us a better offense."

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore as a WR3 or flex play until he can officially return to game action and make it through a full outing without any lingering effects of his injury.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson ready to return?

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 15:54:09 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring), who has missed the last two games, appears ready to return in Week 11 against the Indianapolis Colts. He is fourth on the team with 22 catches for 291 yards and two touchdowns but also leads Atlanta with five drops.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) may have been left to the waiver wire in your league, so check if he's available. Roddy White's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) fantasy value takes a hit again with Hankerson coming back. Don't count out Hankerson being a deep sleeper pick against Indy this weekend coming off the bye week.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson limited

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 15:34:57 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has missed the past few weeks dealing with the lingering hamstring issue. Jacob Tamme ($4,400, 8.8%) has really stepped up with Hankerson gone and is a reliable play on Fantasyscore if Hankerson sits again.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson ruled out

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 10:45:15 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) missed practice for the third straight day Friday, Nov. 6, and has been ruled out for Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: The Niners are a top-10 matchup for receivers in PPR leagues, making Julio Jones ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) and Roddy White ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) attractive daily picks this week. Justin Hardy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) might be worth a look as a deep sleeper, too.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson not practicing

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 14:35:38 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: It's not looking good for Hankerson in Week 9. If he sits, Roddy White ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Justin Hardy ($2,000, 4.0%) should receive more targets, but neither of them have played consistently this year. White is probably a more promising option on FantasyScore.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson misses practice

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 14:55:47 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson is still dealing with the hamstring injury that caused him to miss last week's contest. If he is sidelined again this week, Justin Hardy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Roddy White ($3,000, 6.0%) should see more looks and are cheaper options on FantasyScore.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson ruled out

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 10:45:33 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) has officially been ruled out in Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: With Hankerson out, Julio Jones ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) becomes an even safer high-priced pick on FantasyScore. Roddy White ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) also gains more fantasy intrigue as flex sleeper. Justin Hardy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is worth a look as a deep sleeper. The Bucs allow the sixth-most PPR fantasy points (41.4) to wideouts per game this year.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson sits again

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 13:33:49 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) did not practice for a second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson will need to improve quickly if he wants to play in Week 8. If he sits, Roddy White should receive more targets than usual and is not a bad FantasyScore option at his current price, especially with a great matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson sits out of practice

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 14:02:42 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: If Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) sits this week, Roddy White ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could see more targets. He hasn't played up to par this year, but his current FantasyScore price makes him an appealing investment.

Falcons | Justin Hardy could make impact

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 08:47:22 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy, who has been inactive in all seven games so far, could see his first action in Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) day-to-day. QB Matt Ryan fully expects Hardy to make an impact on offense at some point this year.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) sounds very iffy for this week, so you should look to stay away from him in daily contests. His fantasy value is quickly fading. Hardy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is good for salary cap relief as a deep sleeper on FantasyScore, but only look his way if Hankerson is officially ruled out.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson to miss practice

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 14:38:26 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) will not practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Fantasy Tip: After a promising start to the year, Hankerson has disappointed his owners the last two weeks. He's still a decent guy to have on your fantasy squad for depth, but his value is fading. He could be forced to sit out in Week 8, too, making him a weak target early in the week.

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 12:01:04 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) was not targeted before leaving the game. Keep checking back for updates on his status for Week 8's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Sun, 25 Oct 2015 10:56:57 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the team's Week 7 game and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Hankerson is able to return to the game. Roddy White could see more playing time if Hankerson is sidelined for a few weeks.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson expected to play

Fri, 23 Oct 2015 12:25:03 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (ribs, hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and is listed as probable for the Week 7 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been pretty quiet over the last two weeks with 50 receiving yards over that span. He has received at least six targets in four of the last five games but may not be the best option since the Titans allow the fourth fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 13:10:39 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WRs Leonard Hankerson (hamstring, ribs) and Roddy White (foot) were limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been a better option than White ($3,600, 7.2%) all year. The Tennessee Titans have been tough versus wide receivers this season, but Hankerson is probably the less risky play on FantasyScore.

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 13:34:21 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring, ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been pretty quiet since his big Week 4 performance but should continue to see regular targets. Hankerson may be a risky option in Week 7 because the Tennessee Titans has played well against opposing wide receivers.

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (ribs) practiced Wednesday, Oct. 14, and is probable for Week 6 Thursday, Oct. 15, against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has emerged as the second receiver on the team and has a solid matchup. He's worth flex consideration on FantasyScore.

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (ribs) was limited in practice Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has turned into Atlanta's No. 2 wide receiver this year, but disappointed in Week 5. He's worth another look on FantasyScore this week in what could be a high-scoring affair with the New Orleans Saints.

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 16:46:42 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (ribs) was limited during practice Monday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson injured his ribs during the Week 5 game but was able to return to the game, but his availability for the Week 6 game is still uncertain. Owners should monitor his practice participation during the week to see if he is able to play because he has had a solid role in the passing game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (rib) went to the locker room after suffering a rib injury during the team's Week 5 game. Hankerson was having problems standing up straight because of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye out for an update because Hankerson could miss some time if he has a broken rib. Roddy White could receive more work if Hankerson is sidelined, which will help his fantasy value.

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 14:50:58 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has seen a lot of targets over the last three game and appears to be receiving a bigger role in the offense. Hankerson will be facing a solid Redskins defense but could still be a solid starting option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) appears to have a have a good chance to play in Week 5 since he has been able to do some things during practice. He is coming off a 100-yard performance in Week 4 and could be a cheaper option to consider against the Washington Redskins in Week 5.

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson (thumb) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) had his breakout game last week and looks to be supplanting Roddy White as Atlanta's No. 2 wide receiver. He's not a bad play this week on FantasyScore against the Washington Redskins, assuming he's fully healthy.

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson has big game

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 16:37:12 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson had six catches for a team-high 103 yards and a touchdown in a 48-21 win over the Houston Texans in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has replaced Roddy White ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) as the No. 2 option in the passing game, and he could make a solid source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 22:10:02 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson hauled in three receptions for 45 yards in the Week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He was targeted six times.

Fantasy Tip: Hankerson ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is worth a look as a low-end WR3 or flex option in FantasyScore heading into Week 4 against the Houston Texans.
