    New punt returner in playoffs?

    Some fans on twitter have taken to calling Franks “Fair Catch Franks.” He has 17 fair catches and 20 punt returns for 154 yards (7.7 per return).

    His 17 fair catches are seventh-most in the league behind Jets returner Jeremy Kerley (31), Minnesota’s Marcus Sherels (26), Philadelphia’s Damaris Johnson (22), Green Bay’s Randall Cobb (21), Detroit’s Stefan Logan (20) and Miami’s Davonne Bess (18), according to stats.

    His 7.7 yards per return is 21st in the league among players with at least 20 returns or more. Buffalo’s Leodis McKelvin leads the league with an 18.7 averaged and two touchdowns.

    “Really, it’s just whatever I see back there,” Franks said. “Really, it’s just make a play. That’s all it is. Every play is different.”

    In the loss to the Saints at New Orleans, the Falcons let Harry Douglas return a punt late when they were trying to bust a big return. Perhaps, they’ve been keeping him on ice for the playoffs?

    Idk y they want to keep him on ice because if you want something to work, you use it in game in the season, not try it out when it matters most in the playoffs. I know he has done it before but not as much as he should. We need to let him do a couple of returns these last 2 games if we going to change to HD in the playoffs.

    with this offense, fair catches are not the worst thing. they move the ball well.

    with that being said though, if a returner can get safe yards (ex. wont fumble), then yea, install him into the PR position to help field position game at the very least.
