  • Falcons' Parker Hesse: Catches one pass Sunday

    Hesse caught his only target for seven yards during Sunday's 21-14 win over the Jaguars.

    With Hayden Hurst (ankle) on injured reserve, Hesse has caught one pass in each of his last two games. He was out-snapped by No. 2 tight end Lee Smith 29-23 on Sunday, but Smith's strength is in the running game, which should open the door for Hesse in the passing game. Nonetheless, barring a touchdown, Hesse likely remains unplayable in standard formats.

In three appearances with the Falcons this season, Hesse has played 27 snaps on offense, failing to reel in his only target.
