Bears WR coach Darryl Drake might have best explained the plan for Devin Hester last weekend by suggesting the "Hester Package" will limit snaps but elevate targets to make more efficient use of Hester's time on offense.

"The talent has always been there," Drake told reporters. "It's just a matter of not having him play 70 plays and throw to him twice. Play him 15 [plays], let him touch it 13 [times.] In order for him to be effective, we don't need to have him out there playing that many plays. If he's out there, put the ball in his hands. We need to have that package, and Mike Tice -- I promise you -- he's going to do it."

Fantasy Impact: 

Just last week, the report was that the Bears intended to start Hester. It appears that they have backed off that stance, but are insistent on having him (heavily?) involved in the offense. We'd be very surprised if he gets 13 touches per game.
