The Atlanta Falcons have announced that they have released wide receiver Devin Hester.

The three-time All-Pro was originally drafted by the Chicago Bears in the second round (57th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Miami (FL). Hester has been a dynamic return man during his career and holds the NFL record in return touchdowns (20) and punt return touchdowns (14).

Last season, Hester was placed on injured-reserve designated to return at the beginning of the season with a toe injury. He returned in Week 13 and recorded 269 total return yards during the last five games of the year.

Fantasy Impact:

The Falcons signed wide receiver Mohamed Sanu and drafted wide receiver Devin Fuller out of UCLA this offseason in an effort to help Matt Ryan and add more depth to the wide receiver corp. Atlanta will also have intense competition at the kick/punt returner position with Fuller, RB Tevin Coleman, WR Eric Weems, and a handful of others battling for that spot, the story went on to say.

Falcons place WR Leonard Hankerson on season-ending IR

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Atlanta Falcons activated wide receiver/return specialist Devin Hester from injured reserve Friday and placed wide receiver Leonard Hankerson on season-ending IR.

The move with Hester was expected, as he is set to make his season debut against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. He missed the first 11 games after tearing two ligaments in his right big toe during the preseason.

As for Hankerson, he had been battling a hamstring strain for a while and aggravated it two games ago against the Indianapolis Colts. He had missed three games because of the injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Hankerson’s absence directly impacts the number of targets that TE Jacob Tamme will see. Tamme has averaged 6.0-67-0.25 on 8.5 T/G in the four games that Hankerson has missed. He’s averaging just 3.3-41 on 4.7 T/G in the six games in which Hankerson has played. Tamme becomes a low-end TE1 for rest-of-season purposes.
