Devin Hester caught five passes for 85 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 15 loss to the Steelers.
Hester saw his snaps and usage rise with Julio Jones (hip) inactive. He was targeted six times as the No. 3 receiver, scoring from 17 yards out in the second quarter and then ripping off a 46-yard gain on a screen pass. Even with the fine statistical output, Hester won't be a recommended fantasy play in Week 16. Dec 14 - 5:08 PM
