He is the 4th option at WR. You also have to account for the TE and RB position taking targets. If you pay with return yardage then he will have more value.

Team # 1:
QB: Romo
WR: Dez
WR: Jordy
WR: Floyd
RB: Murray
RB: B. Tate
FLX: M. Wallace
TE: Reed
K: Parkey 
DEF: Miami (Streaming)
BN: C. Ivory
BN: J. Gordon
BN: D. Robinson 
BN: J. Stewart
BN: D. McFadden
BN: I. Crowell
BN: T. Kelce

I can easily see him taking the #3 spot from Harry Douglas. He's looked good so far in the preseason.

As a Bears fan I can confidently tell you nothing to see here. Unless you get points for return yardage. Then, yeah, something here. But if you don't, look somewhere else.

6 targets, 5 catches and 99 yards. Dare I say that Hester has value this year as a WR with surrounding offensive pieces and fast track? Or was it a function of playing the Saints?

A year early with his foresight but Julio is a wizard lol!

Wouldn't expect production like this ever again this season. We've seen this song & dance in Chicago several times. If you've got an empty roster spot doesn't hurt to take a flier I guess but there is probably a handful of guys I'd look at first.

I agree. It's not the first time he's had a nice game. I would not expect this or anything near it.

If any y'all watched their preseason games, they use him in the wr sets on occasion. He is going to be their short ydg slot guy. Since they don't have gonzo it seems they are trying to spread the d out in short distance passing situations.

He took a screen pass to the house in each of the last 2 preseason games and they were IMPRESSIVE. I told my buddies to watch out for me and they gave me the lulz.

I think there is some value here:

(10:20 am ET) The Falcons are putting a new emphasis on a four-receiver set featuring Julio Jones, Roddy White, Harry Douglas and Devin Hester, reports ESPN.com. The lineup "worked wonders" against the Saints as Matt Ryan threw for 448 yards in a 37-34 overtime win, the report said.

Atlanta plays with one running back and no tight ends in that formation.

I'm picking him up in a league that has return yard points although they are minimal, not like the stuff I've seen others mention.

In my league we get 1 pt/20 return yds...guys like this are often sneaky wr3's if they are getting any production as receivers to go along with consistent return yards...I have my eye on Hester, probably give it one more week to see what he does

notable drops since draft: Stacy, Jordan Reed(probably should have held through the injury), Wheaton

as a bears fan it will anger me immensely if Atlanta figures out how to consistently make use of hester in their offense...the bears brass had 8 years to figure that out and couldn't

Don't think Hester will be that fantasy relevant in standard leagues this year as anything more than a WR4, but in leagues where all yardage is considered equal, he's actually a low-end WR1. Yes, he's not going to score more than 3-4 TD's (and that's his ceiling) but when you throw in 1,000+ return yards, you're talking about a guy who's going to have around 1,400 - 1,700 total yards, which makes up for the lack of TD production.

He will basically be a good punt play depending on matchup. The reason i have been watching him so closely since preseason is because he is a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball. His 2 td's in the preseason were basically screen passes where he did all the work. I'd rather him than some schmo that got a lucky end zone target.


This may sound like blasphemy but i envision him being used as a poor man's percy harvin.

I like that he had 5 catches and not just one huge catch for a bunch of yards. It shows that he may be more involved in the offense this year rather than used as a gadget type guy or someone who is only in on certain packages. In return yardage leagues, I think he is a valuable bench stash that may end up finding his way into your weekly lineup depending on the matchup. I'm hoping to get him in my hometown league that awards points for returns with the idea that when my stud WRs are on bye he will be a viable fill-in.
