Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy posted four catches for 41 yards on five targets in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: With Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Mohamed Sanu and Austin Hooper sucking up targets, there isn't much left for Hardy. He is only worth a look in the very deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy caught all three of his targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Being usually no better than fifth in the pecking order any given play, Hardy's role is far too small to be useful in Week 16 championship games.

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy picked up three grabs, 30 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Hardy has an OK day here for his small group of fantasy owners, but he isn't someone to regularly rely upon in most leagues. The Falcons host the Cardinals in Week 15.

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy posted two receptions for just 12 yards in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, but he was able to grab a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Hardy doesn't do enough to warrant fantasy consideration in most leagues, but he could be useful going forward if Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu are forced to miss time. Fortunately for the Falcons they're off in Week 5 for a bye.

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy (ankle) will not return against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Aug. 25, after suffering an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Atlanta is going to take a conservative approach with any player during the preseason, so it remains to be seen how serious the injury is. If healthy, Hardy could be a sneaky late-round option in PPR formats for a Falcons offense looking for a No. 2 option behind Julio Jones.

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy is expected to be a major contributor in the passing game this season.
Huddle Up: Despite some deep-sleeper hype, the 2015 rookie never did get much going, finishing with 21 catches for 194 yards but the path to targets is even clearer now with Roddy White's offseason departure.

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy can be the No. 3 wide receiver in 2016, according to general manager Thomas Dimitroff.
Huddle Up: USED ELSEWHERE

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy, who has been inactive in all seven games so far, could see his first action in Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) day-to-day. QB Matt Ryan fully expects Hardy to make an impact on offense at some point this year.
Huddle Up: Hardy, a fourth-round pick out of East Carolina, finished as the Falcons' second-leading receiver in the preseason with 11 catches for 130 yards and is a player to watch if you need deeper-league WR help.

Atlanta Falcons WR Justin Hardy is projected as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver behind WRs Julio Jones and Roddy White, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.
Huddle Up: Devin Hester, Leonard Hankerson and Drew Davis are also in the mix, but the fourth-round pick out of East Carolina has the build (5-10, 190) and ability to contribute immediately out of the slot and has to be considered the front-runner for the No. 3 role.
