|After sitting out the opening week of the season, Hankerson put together three solid performances, gaining 181 yards and scoring a touchdown. Then he got mothballed, popping up a few times over the course of the season on his way to 38 receptions, 543 yards, and three touchdowns. The Redskins’ 2011 third-round pick has solid size at 6'2”, 205 pounds as well as decent speed, but inconsistency has been the hallmark of his career. While only the marginally talented Josh Morgan sits in front of him on the depth chart, it is also worth noting that the Redskins enter training camp with a deep group of wide receivers that includes older speedsters Devery Henderson and Donte Stallworth. Hankerson could break out in his third season or he could find himself on the street. Monitor his preseason and adjust accordingly.

Hankerson placed on IR with torn LCL
|Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson will miss the remainder of the season with a torn lateral collateral ligament in his left knee, coach Mike Shanahan said. Shanahan said Josh Morgan will start in Hankerson’s place. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Morgan will be third in line for targets in the passing game behind Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed so his fantasy value will hover in the WR4/5 range.

Concussion; Leonard Hankerson likely out for season
|Rookie TE Jordan Reed sustained a concussion Sunday. HC Mike Shanahan said Reed was undergoing the normal concussion protocol, and it won’t be known until later in the week if he’ll play Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.
Shanahan also said Leonard Hankerson injured the LCL in his left knee during Sunday’s loss at Philadelphia, and MRI exam results were positive. The coach said it wouldn’t be known for a couple days whether the injury would require surgery, which would end Hankerson’s season. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Reed was in on just 33 snaps in Week 11, his lowest total in eight weeks and the results for Washington were predictable, especially since Pierre Garcon complained his ankle was "hurting him badly" following the team's loss to Philadelphia. Reed has emerged as an every-week starter in fantasy, making his potential absence next week a damaging one. Hankerson's loss likely clears the way for more playing time for Santana Moss, Josh Morgan and/or Aldrick Robinson.
