Default Hankerson to start at Flanker...?

I saw this yesterday on one of my Fantasy sites. I really hope he can stay healthy and play like he did in his last game.

Leonard Hankerson - WR - Redskins
The Redskins plan on starting WR Leonard Hankerson opposite of Pierre Garcon.
Garcon will play split end, which would slide Hankerson in at flanker. The 2011 third-round pick would be getting the nod over Josh Morgan, who would be shuffled into a reserve role that could result in some time in the slot. Hankerson, of course, is still recovering from a hip injury, so this is all contingent on him getting back to full health. His upside will make him worth consideration late in your fantasy draft this fall.

From what I remember of Morgan and assuming that he is now healthy, I would be surprised if Hankerson beats him out as a starter.

i agree that Morgan has potential to be a great receiver.. Hopefully he can also stay healthy

In 3 1/2 years Morgan has only topped 100yds once and only has 9 career TDs. Just my opinion but I think he is more of a #3 WR.

in his defense, he was (supposedly) right at the cusp of really blossoming and then broke his ankle.. a very tough break for him.. on the other hand, the Niners didnt really make a huge effort to re-sign him so there are caution flags

Even if he wasn't coming off the injury, it's hard for me to believe that a decision has been made this early on whether or not he's a starter.

Agreed. I'm sure the coaches would love for Hankerson to be their starting receiver. If he is one of the starters, that means there will be some depth in the wide receiving core.

If Morgan is better, Morgan will be starting.

It's a long time for TC and Pre-Season. I hope Hankerson can make it as a starter, especially because he's young, a homegrown draft pick and because he could work with RGIII for many years. But first he has to stay healthy and win his position through hard work and performance.

I agree. I think this is a case of a fantasy football site making too many assumptions.

I reserve judgement on anyone receivers numbers coming out of San Fran....they did not have a quarterback who could throw to them

We shall see what Morgan can do in training camp and preseason but I think it will be great competition between he and Hankerson. I expect more competition to be brought in also
