Hardy caught two of two targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in Monday's win over the Saints.

Five Falcons have more catches than Hardy's four, but none of them have more touchdowns, as his two ties a team lead with Julio Jones. The Falcons brought Mohamed Sanu in to be the No. 2 receiver and have a collection of backs and tight ends to throw to, but the little shovel pass Matt Ryan used on Monday to find Hardy for the score was something the team could look to build off of. Coupled with Hardy's nifty touchdown catch off of a deflection in Week 2, it might be possible that the diminutive Hardy can find his niche where taller receivers typically thrive - near the goal line.
