Washington Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson could see his value go up on Sunday against the Bengals with news that Pierre Garcon will miss another game with a foot injury. The Redskins are really hurting to find a solid receiving option for Robert Griffin III with Garcon out and Hankerson did have a 68-yard touchdown in week 2. Aldrick Robinson got the start last week, but did not have an impact.
Fantasy Analysis: Hankerson was a 3rd round pick in 2011, so there is some expectation there that he'll be more than just a role player and he did have 8 catches for 106 yards against the Dolphins in week 9 last season. There haven't been many highlights outside of that and now could be his chance to earn more playing time. The Bengals are a good opportunity to play against as they've given up over 300 yards passing each of the first two games, with four touchdowns allowed. Hankerson could be a sneaky flex play if you're hurting for options.
