Leonard Hankerson has a 'legit chance' to be a 'secondary threat' for Falcons

ESPN - [Full Article]

Falcons beat writer Vaughn McClure: No one figured Leonard Hankerson would emerge as a fantasy target based on his career numbers in four seasons with the Redskins. Hankerson has just six touchdowns in 31 career games (123 targets). Injuries have hampered his progress, but a healthy Hankerson has a legit chance to be a secondary threat behind Julio Jones. Hankerson already showed he could be a scoring target with a 2-yard touchdown reception from Matt Ryan in a preseason matchup against the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: 

Hankerson's ADP has risen in the last few weeks behind some training camp buzz. He'll have a chance to see snaps as the Falcons third receiver, which has been a busy position in the last few seasons when Julio Jones and Roddy White struggled with injuries.
