Devin Hester (hamstring) remained "limited" on Thursday.

The Falcons have been limiting their gadget player's practice reps for multiple weeks now. He'll be a WR5/6 for Week 7.
Oct 16 - 3:59 PM

Devin Hester (hamstring) is practicing Wednesday.

Hester played 30-of-58 snaps in Sunday's loss despite being listed as questionable. With Harry Douglas sidelined, he'll remain the Falcons' slot receiver in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 1:56 PM

Devin Hester caught a 23-yard pass in Atlanta's Week 6 loss to the Bears.

The one-catch effort was Hester's third in six games. Even with Harry Douglas sidelined with a foot issue, Hester remains nothing more than a boom-or-bust WR5.
Oct 12 - 8:13 PM

Devin Hester (hamstring) is active for Week 6 against the Bears.

The gadget player is good to go against his former team. Inactive for the Falcons are WR Harry Douglas, QB Sean Renfree, CB Javier Arenas, LB Tyler Starr, OT Cameron Bradfield, OG Harland Gunn and DT Cliff Matthews. Douglas (foot) remains week to week.
Oct 12 - 2:58 PM

Devin Hester (hamstring) is questionable for Week 6 against the Bears.

He's fully expected to play after returning to practice Friday. With Harry Douglas (foot) still out, Hester will again fill the No. 3 receiver role for the Falcons.
Oct 10 - 11:07 AM

Devin Hester (hamstring) remained out of Falcons practice Thursday.

Coach Mike Smith has already said his gadget player will be fine for Sunday's game against the Bears. Hester is a high-upside WR5, but one with doughnut potential.
Oct 9 - 1:24 PM

Devin Hester (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Coach Mike Smith said Hester will be fine to face his former Bears teammates.
Oct 8 - 3:52 PM

Devin Hester caught 2-of-4 targets for 16 yards and rushed once for three yards in Atlanta's Week 5 loss to the Giants.

Hester worked as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver with Harry Douglas (hamstring) inactive. Hester has some value in return-yardage leagues -- he returns both kickoffs and punts for the Falcons -- but isn't worth owning in normal leagues.
Oct 5 - 5:11 PM

Devin Hester (ankle) is probable for Week 5 against the Giants.

Hester has been limited in practice all week, but his "injury" was never a concern. With Harry Douglas (foot) out, Hester will be the Falcons' No. 3 receiver Sunday.
Oct 3 - 12:17 PM

Devin Hester (ankle) was limited in Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

The Falcons are just managing Hester's reps. Although the gadget player has had a few nice games, he remains nothing more than a hail mary WR5 for fantasy purposes.
Oct 2 - 3:47 PM

Devin Hester caught five passes for 70 yards and one touchdown in the Falcons' Week 4 loss to the Vikings.

Working as the clear No. 3 receiver with Harry Douglas (foot) sidelined, Hester saw seven targets. Hester turned a dump off pass into a 36-yard score when he broke two tackles on the way to the end zone. He actually looks decent on offense after struggling with it in Chicago. After four games, Hester is on pace for a 48-784-4 receiving line. He won't come into play unless someone gets injured ahead of him. Hester is worth keeping an eye on, however.
Sep 28 - 8:36 PM

According to Falcons OC Dirk Koetter, Devin Hester has "played his way into more plays" on offense.

The special-teams dynamo has caught 7-of-8 targets for 126 yards through three games, and added a 20-yard rushing touchdown. Hester has provided a nice spark as a gadget player, but that's almost certainly what he'll remain. That comes out to boom-or-bust WR5 status. He isn't worth rostering in 12-14 team leagues.
Sep 23 - 6:50 PM

Devin Hester caught just one pass for 25 yards in Atlanta's Week 3 demolition of the Bucs, but added a 20-yard rushing touchdown and punt-return score.

Hester took a second-quarter punt 62 yards to the house, giving him 20 combined career kickoff- and punt-return touchdowns to break Deion Sanders' record. Overall, Hester totaled 68 yards on three punts as his former coach Lovie Smith bafflingly kept kicking it to him. Hester's rushing score — which put the Falcons up 28-0 15 minutes into the game — was the first of his career. Although Hester was everywhere tonight, he drew just one target in the passing game, even with Roddy White sitting out. He remains off the fantasy radar.
Sep 18 - 11:17 PM

Devin Hester caught his lone target for two yards in Atlanta's Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

We hope you didn't rush out to add Hester after his five-catch Week 1. Perhaps he'll have 1-2 more blowup games as the Falcons' No. 4 receiver, but Hester has proven time and again that he can't be counted on for consistent production on offense.
