Washington Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson is likely to replace Pierre Garcon as the team's starting split end on Sunday if Garcons is unable to play against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to Zac Boyer. Garcon is listed as doubtful on the team's official injury report. He missed Washington's Week 2 loss against the St. Louis Rams. Hankerson caught two passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in the losing effort.
Fantasy Impact: Robert Griffin III has burst onto the scene in his first two NFL starts, and Leonard Hankerson could be in line for a healthy dose of targets if Garcon misses the game. Hankerson proved his worth as a deep threat, and Griffin has shown no hesitation to let it loose down the field. Hankerson is a decent sleeper at wide receiver this week.
