Jacob Hester: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Hester could continue to get goal-line carries in the Broncos' offense, as he did late last season. Offensive coordinator Adam Gase said that Hester "should help our short yardage, goal line, four-minute packages. It's been a big point of emphasis this offseason to figure out how we get him on the field and use him a little more, whether he's playing tailback, fullback, an F-tight end and H-back. We're going to try to use him as many ways as possible."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Jacob Hester.

2013

Cut by Broncos in September.

2012

Hester appears to have lost out on the starting fullback role with the signing of Le'Ron McClain, so it is unclear what his role will be in 2012. It doesn't seem likely that the Bolts would want to keep two fullbacks on the roster, and they already have a bit of a log jam at the tailback position, so we will have to wait and see what the future holds for Hester. At any rate, his upside is limited at best in 2012.

2011

Hester is the starting fullback in San Diego, but his touches will be limited since Ryan Mathews is going to get the lion's share of the carries and Mike Tolbert has emerged as the primary goal line back.

2010

Hester will most likely serve as the starting fullback, but his offensive touches will be minimal at best. The Bolts like him more for his blocking and toughness than they do for his ball carrying.

2009

Hester took over starting fullback duties toward the end of the season in 2008, and the Chargers like what they saw in him. He is good for a few carries and receptions every game, but he is far more valuable to the Bolts than he is to any fantasy teams.

2008

While most consider Hester best suited at fullback, the Chargers traded up and drafted him with the intention of making him LaDainian Tomlinson's backup. Tomlinson's missed just one game throughout his entire career, but he's reaching the point where many backs begin to break down, and any runner in San Diego's system is worth monitoring. Still, Darren Sproles has averaged 4.8 YPC during his career and provides an explosive element, so Sproles would likely get a piece of the action, too, should Tomlinson get hurt.
