|After four years of the Devin Hester experiment at wide receiver, we can safely conclude that heís not on the verge of fantasy stardom any time soon. Hester has seen his targets drop every since his high of 92 during the 2008 season and his receptions from went from 57 to 40 to 26 over the past three years. Hester struggled badly in 2011, catching just 26 of his 56 targets for 369 yards and a single touchdown – a career low. And no, Jay Cutlerís absence wasnít an issue since Hester had basically been relegated to returning kicks by the time Cutler was lost for the season. Over the last eight games, Hester was targeted just seven times and had five games where he wasnít targeted at all. If that wasnít enough evidence that Hester isnít worth adding to your fantasy roster, then consider the Bears decisions to trade for Brandon Marshall in the offseason and use a 2nd round pick on Alshon Jeffery. Move on, folks.

Falcons should have White on the field in Week 4
|Wide receiver Roddy White (hamstring) continued to work on the side with the training staff. Devin Hester (calf), running back Antone Smith (hamstring) and wide receiver Harry Douglas (foot) returned to practice on Wednesday after being held out on Monday.

FF Today's Take: We'll monitor White's practice participation the rest of this week and he's likely to be limited, but the general feeling is that he will be available in Week 4.

Hamstring injury will cause Roddy to sit

FF Today's Take: The Falcons hinted throughout the week that Roddy's rest during practice this week was a precaution. Sounds like his hamstring injury is more serious. Harry Douglas and Devin Hester will get a boost in fantasy value with Douglas becoming a flex option.
