Can't make much of Devin Hester's day
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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

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

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

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

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.
