Leonard Hankerson puts up big fantasy numbers in Week 1

Washington Redskins receiver Leonard Hankerson catches a pass against the St. Louis Rams - Dilip Vishwanat

Washington Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson put up big fantasy numbers in his performance on Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles, catching five passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson put up big fantasy numbers in his Week 1 debut against the Philadelphia Eagles catching five passes for 80 yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Pierre Garcon got the majority of the targets with 11 but Hankerson made the most of his opportunities catching five of his seven targets. Congratulations to any fantasy owner who chose to start him.

Fantasy impact: Hankerson wasn't the most targeted receiver but he was the most productive. Griffin targeted 10 receivers on the night and it's understandable to question whether Hankerson will ever put up those numbers again. Pierre Garcon got the most targets as you might expect, but watch this situation closely as Hankerson could start getting more looks if he continues to be a reliable target for Robert Griffin III. At the moment he isn't a viable fantasy option.
