|Hester proved he still has a little left in the tank and no doubt wants to be involved in the offense as well as the return game. He should be used in a part time basis in the slot and in bubble screens but his targets will be in short supply. New additions Leonard Hankerson and James Hardy add further depth to the teams receiving options. Unless injury strikes, Hester isnít likely to see enough looks to make him a fantasy asset this season. Hankerson had some success as a deep threat in Kyle Shannahanís offense in Washington and could be on the field in larger formations.
| Tevin Coleman out for Week 3|
Rib injury may cost RB a couple weeks

|Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn officially ruled out rookie running back Tevin Coleman and wide receiver/return specialist Devin Hester for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Coleman will likely miss a couple games after breaking a rib in last week's game against the Giants. Devonta Freeman now has a volume opportunity this week against an improved Dallas defense. He's a viable RB2 consideration.
| RB Devonta Freeman likely to sit versus Ravens|
Several Falcons to miss exhibition season finale

|Wide receiver/teturner Devin Hester (toe), linebacker Justin Durant (foot), cornerback Desmond Trufant (shoulder), running back Antone Smith (hamstring), tight end Tony Moeaki (ankle), linebacker Joplo Bartu (quadriceps) and safety Robenson Therezie (quadriceps) were declared out for the game. Running back Devonta Freeman (hamstring) is not expected to play, but wasnít declared out. Several other starters, like quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones, are not expected to play. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)|
FFToday's Take: Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman will battle for carries all season, however both players are recovering from pre-season hamstring injuries. Freeman has been limited since returning to practice but reports indicate he is progressing towards being 100 percent by Week One. At this point, health and competition are suppressing the fantasy appeal of both running backs to RB4 territory.
