Can't make much of Devin Hester's day


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/14/2014) Looking to make up for some lost big-play potential, the Falcons gave return man Devin Hester more of a look on offense with star wide receiver Julio Jones sidelined by a hip injury Week 15 against Pittsburgh, and he delivered five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown, scoring on a 17-yard strike from quarterback Matt Ryan in the second quarter. He nearly had a second touchdown, too, just missing on a 4-yard toss in the third quarter. Of course, that play would have been negated by an offensive pass interference penalty anyway.

That was Hester's only miss on the day, but then, that's kind of the problem. Six target does not a reliable Fantasy option make, especially when the Falcons had two other players, Harry Douglas and Roddy White, with double-digit targets.

Even if Jones doesn't return Week 16 at New Orleans, you can't count on Hester being as efficient with the targets he gets, and considering Jones was a game-time decision for Week 15, there's a good chance Hester goes back to getting just two or three. Outside of deeper leagues, he's not deserving of a waiver claim.


Falcons WR Devin Hester comes through Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The absence of prolific wideout Julio Jones due to injury allowed Falcons teammate Devin Hester to step up as a pass-catcher Sunday against Pittsburgh. And step up he did.

Hester caught five passes for 85 yards, including a sweet 17-yard snag in the end zone with four minutes remaining in the first half. It marked his most productive game since the season opener. The score was his second of 2014.

He will try to take his momentum and run with it at New Orleans next Sunday. 


Falcons backup pass catchers do little Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Falcons backup pass catchers did little Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Levine Toilolo managed to haul in four balls, gaining 15 yards. He was the target of a 1 yard score from Matt Ryan in the first quarter. Devin Hester had just one catch, gaining 10 yards. He also gained 4 yards on a rushing attempt. Eric Weems pulled in two balls, but gained just 9 yards. 

They'll look for more Week 14 against the Packers. 


Eight Falcons probable for Sunday game against Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) The Falcons are all but perfectly healthy for their Sunday game against visiting Cleveland. Cornerback Robert Alford (wrist) and offensive tackle Jonathan Scott (hamstring) are out, but the other eight players on their injury report are probable.

That group includes guard Jon Asamoah (shoulder), defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee), wide receivers Drew Davis (foot), Harry Douglas (foot), Julio Jones (illness) and Devin Hester (wrist) and running backs Steven Jackson (illness) and Patrick DiMarco (illness).


Falcons WRs Douglas, Hester make marginal impact Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Falcons wide receivers Harry Douglas and Devin Hester were held in check during Sunday's victory over the Panthers in Week 11.

Both receivers combined for 80 yards. Douglas was the team's third leading receiver behind Roddy White and Julio Jones. He caught all four of his targets for 46 yards. Hester worked his way past a wrist injury. He was held to only three catches for 34 yards in a 19-17 victory.

Atlanta will face Cleveland in Week 11.


Falcons WR Devin Hester departs with wrist injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Falcons wide receivers Devin Hester was forced out of Sunday's game against the Panthers with a wrist injury. Hester sustained the injury after absorbing a brutal hit, which caused him to lose the ball in the third quarter. He was escorted back to the locker room for further testing. The Falcons have ruled him questionable to return to the game.

Falcons give Devin Hester, Harry Douglas the green light


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) As expected, the Falcons have ruled wide receivers Devin Hester (ankle) and Harry Douglas (foot) active for Sunday's game against the Panthers in Week 11. Both players entered Sunday as questionable due to injuries, but were not in any danger of missing any game action.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tackle Jonathan Scott (hamstring) has been ruled out while fellow offensive lineman Justin Blalock (foot) and defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi (foot) are probable.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Falcons get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) The Falcons got several offensive contributions in their Week 10 win at Tampa Bay. Among them, running back Devonta Freeman ran three times for 16 yards and caught one pass for minus-2 yards. Running back Jacquizz Rodgers had a 1-yard rush and caught two passes for 11 yards.

Wideout Devin Hester caught a 5-yard pass. They'll all visit the Panthers in Week 11.


Devin Hester leaves with ankle injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Falcons receiver/returner Devin Hester left the game at Tampa Bay early in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. He is questionable to return.

Devin Hester still part of Falcons' offensive plan


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Falcons wide receiver Devin Hester had no targets in Week 8 against the Lions as No. 3 wide receiver Harry Douglas made his return from injury. It was also the first time this season Hester was held without a catch.

Despite his absence in the passing game in the Falcons' last game, quarterback Matt Ryan said Hester is still expected to be a factor on offense.

"Devin is a part of our plan every week," Ryan said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Obviously he’s showcased this year what he’s capable of doing and how explosive of a player that he is."


Falcons list six probables on final injury report for Week 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Falcons listed seven players on their final injury report for Week 7 at Baltimore, and only wide receiver Harry Douglas was ruled out for the contest. Defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee), guard Justin Blalock (back), wide receiver Devin Hester (hamstring), wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle), linebacker Prince Shembo (knee) and linebacker Nate Stupar (knee) were all labeled probable for Sunday's game after practicing in full on Friday.

Falcons WRs Julio Jones, Devin Hester active in Week 6


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Falcons wide receivers Julio Jones (ankle) and Devin Hester (hamstring) are active for Sunday's Week 6 matchup with the Bears.

Jones was listed as probable to play Sunday on the team's final injury report of the week, while Hester carried a questionable tag. The receivers will look to take advantage of a Bears back seven decimated by injuries.


Falcons in fine shape heading into clash against Bears


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Wide receiver Harry Douglas might be the only injured inactive player Sunday for the Falcons when they host Chicago. No teammate has been deemed any worse than questionable.

The questionables on the Friday injury report are guard Justin Blalock (back) and wide receiver Devin Hester (hamstring). Safety Kemal Ishmael (ankle), premier wideout Julio Jones (ankle), tackle Jake Matthews (ankle) and linebacker Prince Shembo (knee) are all probable.


Falcons' Devin Hester not pleased with Chicago breakup last year


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Falcons wide receiver Devin Hester was not pleased with the way things ended in Chicago, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. When speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Hester showed his frustrations on how he played out the final year of his contract and how the Bears did not meet his asking price of $3 million per year.

"Chicago didn't offer me anything. They didn't offer me no contract," Hester said. "They didn't call me or nothing, They didn't call me, period, pretty much. I didn't hear from Chicago. They didn't say they were going to re-sign me. All I know is that they were going to go in a different direction."

Hester already spurned his former coach with a rushing touchdown and a punt return touchdown in Week 3. Now he'll get his first crack at his former team on Sunday at the Georgia Dome. Hester has 14 catches for 212 yards and a touchdown through five games.


Falcons WRs Julio Jones, Devin Hester cleared to play


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle) and wide receiver Devin Hester (ankle) were cleared to play Week 5 at N.Y. Giants. Both players were listed as probable.

Falcons injury list dominated Friday by probables


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) The loss of wide receiver Harry Douglas and guard Justin Blalock to injury for the Sunday game against the Giants can't mask an encouraging Friday injury report for the Falcons. Only four other players are on the list and they are all probable.

That quartet are wide receiver Devin Hester and Julio Jones, both with ankle injuries, linebacker Prince Shembo (knee) and safety Kemal Ishmael (ankle).


Devin Hester reflects well on Harry Douglas


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2014) With Harry Douglas inactive because of a foot injury, Devin Hester played the role of third wheel to Julio Jones and Roddy White Week 4 at Minnesota, catching five passes for 70 yards and a touchdown.

The 70 yards were more than Douglas has had in a game this season. Yet because the performance came with Douglas sidelined, it only further validated that the Falcons offense is designed for three wide receivers and able to sustain three wide receivers. Between quarterback Matt Ryan's poor showing in Week 2 and the early injury to Douglas in Week 3, Douglas' relevance to Fantasy owners had been in doubt.

When Douglas returns, Hester won't just go away, but he was clearly a lesser part of the passing game in Week 2 and before Douglas went down in Week 3. I'm thinking Douglas is still the better choice as a bye-week replacement and occasional start in points-per-reception leagues.


Devin Hester scores again Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Falcons wide receiver Devin Hester managed to haul in a score Week 4 against the Vikings.

Hester was used as a deep threat during the contest, but his only touchdown came on a short pass. Hester actually lined up in the backfield on the play, and was able to take a short reception 36 yards for the score. Hester did injure himself late, but was able to return to the game. He finished with five receptions for 70 yards and a score. 

Hester will take on the Giants Week 5. 


Two Falcons wideouts good to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) The Falcons should have two of their wideouts ready for Week 4.

Both Roddy White and Devin Hester are active for the contest. Both players entered considered probable, so the moves shouldn't come as a surprise. 


Roddy White among notable probables for Falcons in Week 4


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) The following players were all full participants for the Falcons in practice on Friday and have been deemed probable for Week 4 at Minnesota: Wide receivers Roddy White (hamstring) and Devin Hester (ankle), linebacker Prince Shembo (calf) and running back Antone Smith (hamstring).

Two injured Falcons WRs practice in full, one limited


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Falcons wide receivers Devin Hester (ankle) and Harry Douglas (foot) were full participants in practice Wednesday. Wide receiver Roddy White, who missed Week 3 due to a hamstring injury, was limited.

"We anticipate tomorrow that Roddy's workload is going to go up," coach Mike Smith said, per ESPN. "That's going to depend on how he feels and recovers from today. I'm sure you've noticed but basically on Wednesdays, we've held him back when he's been healthy as well. 

"I keep telling him a lot of it is going to depend on the surface that we're playing on in terms of the number of snaps that he has. ... It was good to have Roddy back out there to participate."
