Devin Hester expected to see more plays in Week 7: Fantasy implications

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester should see more plays in Week 7 because of the injury to rookie Alshon Jeffery. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Devin Hester will see more plays starting in Week 7 because of the injury to Alshon Jeffery, according to offensive coordinator Mike Tice. He said (via CSNChicago.com) that the plan was to continue to grow the package of plays for Hester, who has not been much of a factor on offense so far this season.

Hester is expected to get most of the work at receiver in place of Jeffery, who is out with a broken right hand. The Bears may also turn to Earl Bennett, who has not played since Sept. 23. The Bears face Detroit on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Hester has not done much on offense and has never really looked in rhythm with Jay Cutler. His biggest play so far has been a 34-yard touchdown catch in Week 4 against Dallas.

It's doubtful that Hester will do much on Monday. He is barely worth owning, much less starting, in most fantasy formats this week.
