Leonard Hankerson secured 4-of-7 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons' Week 11 loss to the Colts.
Hankerson's stat line looks okay, but he was terrible in this game, dropping multiple passes including a second would-be score. Still, Hankerson's role as the Falcons' No. 2 pass option gives him some lower-end fantasy value. He'll be a weak WR3 play against Captain Munnerlyn's Vikings in Week 12. Nov 22 - 5:29 PM

Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson is active for Week 11 against the Colts.

Hankerson told ESPN's Britt McHenry that he's 100 percent recovered from the hamstring injury that's sidelined him since Week 6. The Falcons' Week 11 inactives are WR Nick Williams, CB Phillip Adams, S Robinson Therezie, LB Joplo Bartu, C James Stone, T Bryce Harris, and DE Malliciah Goodman.

Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) is probable for Week 11 against the Colts.

Hankerson is ready to return after missing two games. It's an upgrade for Matt Ryan and the Falcons pass offense, but Hankerson isn't more than a WR4.
Nov 20 - 6:46 PM

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) will return Sunday against the Colts.

Hankerson has been sidelined since Week 6. He's been hit-or-miss this year with two games of 75-plus yards and three others with fewer than 20 yards receiving. HankTime is nothing more than a dart throw WR4 in fantasy.
Nov 20 - 1:09 PM

Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) remained limited on Thursday.

HankTime appears poised to return from his two-game absence. It's curious that he's remained "limited," but Matt Ryan has talked as if he expects Hankerson to play. Hankerson's main fantasy effect will be curbing Jacob Tamme's upside. HankTime is a bottom-dollar WR4.
Nov 19 - 4:27 PM

Matt Ryan thinks the offense has missed Leonard Hankerson (hamstring).

"Hank has had a great year for us when he's been able to go," Ryan said, "and I think having him back opens up a lot of things for everybody. It makes us a better offense." Hankerson returned to a limited practice this week and looks on track to play for the first time since Week 7. HankTime was a strong fantasy option earlier in the season, but he trailed off before the injury. He cannot be trusted in starting lineups even if he suits up this week against the Colts.

Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Hankerson's on track to return coming off the Falcons' bye. He should slot back in as the No. 2 option behind Julio Jones. Roddy White was held to three catches for 44 yards in the two games Hankerson missed.
Nov 18 - 6:41 PM

Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) was limited in Monday's practice.

It is concerning Hankerson is not completely healthy coming out of the bye week, but the limited practice puts him on track to play this week against the Colts. Hankerson did not do much in the two games before suffering the injury, but the Falcons' offense has struggled without him in the lineup. He should immediately slot back in as the No. 2 receiver.
Nov 16 - 11:57 AM

Falcons declared WR Leonard Hankerson, SS William Moore, CB Robert Alford, LB Justin Durant, C James Stone, DE Malliciah Goodman, and OT Bryce Harris inactive for Week 9 against the 49ers.

Hankerson will have last week, this week, and the Falcons' Week 10 bye to get his hamstring right. Jacob Tamme figures to take over as Atlanta's No. 2 pass option behind Julio Jones.
Nov 8 - 2:33 PM

Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 9.

Hankerson was never expected to play after not practicing all week. Jacob Tamme will continue to see increased targets.
Nov 6 - 6:54 PM

Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) remained sidelined Thursday.

Nov 5 - 5:38 PM

Falcons declared WR Leonard Hankerson, DE Malliciah Goodman, C Gino Gradkowski, OT Bryce Harris, SS William Moore, FS Dezmen Southward and WR Nick Williams inactive for Week 8 against the Buccaneers.

Hankerson (hamstring) was ruled out on Friday. Julio Jones should see as many targets as he can handle in his absence. Jonathan Babineaux (back) and O'Brien Schofield (knee) are both active for Atlanta.
Nov 1 - 11:54 AM

Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) is out for Week 8 against the Buccaneers.

Hankerson didn't practice this week and was always a long shot to play on Sunday. Rookie Justin Hardy could see his first action this week with HankTime sidelined. Veteran Roddy White will also be asked to play a bigger role. As usual, Julio Jones will soak up targets against the Buccaneers.
Oct 30 - 1:38 PM
