Trend should continue for Leonard Hankerson


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/12/2013) Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson, who has seen his snap count increase during what has been his most productive two-game stretch of the season, has a chance to take another step forward Week 11 at Philadelphia. The Eagles rank 31st against the pass, surrendering 306.5 yards per game, and have given up the most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season. 

Of course, Hankerson still has a ways to go before he's a viable start in standard leagues, but with five catches for more than 50 yards in each of his last two games, he's looking like at least a fringe contributor in points-per-reception leagues. And if you get a real bind, you could do worse than him off the waiver wire this week.


Consistent approach leads to more reps for Leonard Hankerson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2013) Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson is arguably coming off his best two-game stretch of the season, totaling 10 catches for 116 yards since Week 9.

Hankerson played 34 snaps Week 9 against the Chargers and saw his snap total increase to 42 Week 10 at Minnesota. Hankerson said consistency in his approach has led to increased playing time and production.

"You do everything right. You go to practice, work hard and things practice. You just put the work in and everything happens out there," Hankerson said. "I don’t really set any goal. I just go out there, make plays for the team, do my job and try to help my team come out on top. If you’re making plays, and you’re out there on the field, it always feels good to help your team out."
