Devin Hester WR ATL 5 months ago

Hester caught 38 balls for 504 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

On top of his work as a receiver, Hester returned punts and kickoffs, totaling 1,128 kickoff return yards and 240 punt return yards. He took one punt to the house, and also added a rushing touchdown on six carries. Hester is under contract for two more years, so he'll likely be in a similar role with the Falcons in 2015, but his upside is limited as long as Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas stay healthy. If your league offers points for kickoff or punt return yards, Hester's value gets a noticeable boost. His 1,128 kickoff return yards were the second most of his career.

Hester caught two balls for 25 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints.

Five players saw more targets than Hester on Sunday, but he still has value in a pass-first offense. Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas will all likely get more looks than Hester in Week 17, but since the Falcons are playing in a win-or-go-home contest against the Panthers, expect them to stick to their traditional gameplan and air it out.

Hester had five catches on six targets for 85 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Steelers.

Getting more snaps due to the absence of Julio Jones (hip), Hester scored his first touchdown since Week 4 against the Vikings. Jones is not expected to be out for long, and could return as soon as Week 16 against the Saints, which means Hester's improved fantasy value is likely short-lived.

Hester (wrist) had four catches on six targets for 50 yards Sunday against the Browns.

Hester's 50 yards Sunday marked his highest total since his 70-yard, one-touchdown outing back in Week 4 against the Vikings. With Roddy White and Julio Jones both healthy, along with Harry Douglas, Hester's fantasy potential is limited.

Hester (wrist) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Browns.

With Harry Douglas back in action these days, Hester now has some added competition for wideout targets that don't go to Julio Jones or Roddy White.

Hester (wrist) is probable for Sunday's game against the Browns, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Hester's 34 receiving yards last week against the Panthers were his highest single-game total since all the way back in Week 4. He simply isn't a major component of the passing attack right now, especially with Harry Douglas back to compete for targets.

Hester (wrist) practiced fully Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Hester suffered a sprained wrist in Week 11, but the ailment won't affect his practice participation, at least to start the week. As long as he avoids a setback, expect him to be available Sunday versus the Browns as his typical change-of-pace self.

Hester appears to have a sprained wrist and will undergo further testing on Monday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Hester had to leave Sunday's win over the Panthers temporarily after taking a hit to his left wrist, the same wrist he broke in high school. He did not record a reception after the injury, finishing the game with three grabs for 34 yards. Monday's tests should give the Falcons a better sense of Hester's status for next Sunday's game against the Browns.

Hester (wrist) returned to Sunday's game against the Panthers, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Hester looked to be in a lot of pain after injuring his wrist, but after a brief trip to the locker room he was back on the field.

Hester suffered a wrist injury in Sunday's game against the Panthers and is questionable to return, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. He was hit while carrying the ball and fumbled, grabbing his left forearm as he got up.

Hester didn't make an appearance on offense early in the game, but he eventually got involved, snagging three receptions for 34 yards and adding a nine-yard carry. If Hester can't return, Harry Douglas is probably the biggest beneficiary.
