Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst hauled in five of his eight targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Huddle Up: Hurst drew the ire of fantasy owners hoping he would start out his Falcons' career with a bang last week, but the strong safety play of the Seattle Seahawks put a lid on that. He had no such issues versus the Cowboys, doing most of his damage on a 42-yard TD catch midway through the first quarter. There are a lot of mouths to feed in Atlanta's passing game, but the stage is set for him to have a big year. Consider him a low-end TE1 in a tough matchup versus the Chicago Bears in Week 3.

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst will be an 'every-down tight end' this season, according to Kelsey Conway of AtlantaFalcons.com.
Huddle Up: With Austin Hooper out of the picture, Hurst is set to be the unquestioned starter in his first year with the Falcons. If you don't spend a high pick on one of elite tight ends, Hurst offers TE1 potential and should be available in the later rounds.

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst was excited for the March trade to Atlanta as he sought a chance to become a featured tight end.
Huddle Up: After catching 43 of 62 targets for 512 yards and three touchdowns in two seasons with the Ravens, Hurst takes over as the Falcons' top tight end and could easily eclipse those numbers in 2020. Value him as a low-end TE1 if you wait on the position.

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst was called the 'fastest and most athletic tight end' QB Matt Ryan has 'ever played with.'
Huddle Up: Ryan has played with some high-quality TEs in Tony Gonzalez and Austin Hooper. Hurst totaled just 43 receptions, 512 yards and three touchdowns across 28 games in two seasons with the Baltimore Ravens since being chosen with the 25th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. He's likely to be the No. 3 option in the passing attack behind WRs Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, and is a good bet to have a breakout season. He's a strong target as a late-round TE1.

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst said he has been traveling to Atlanta over the past four weeks in order to work out with QB Matt Ryan. Hurst said the workouts are improving his chemistry with Ryan and it will pay off during training camp.
Huddle Up: Hurst was acquired this offseason and will be the starter for the Falcons. He likely will be a popular target for Ryan in the passing game and can be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst and a 2020 fourth-round draft pick were traded to the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for a 2020 second-round pick and a 2020 fifth-round pick.
Huddle Up: Atlanta moved quickly to replace Austin Hooper, landing a player with a first-round pedigree in Hurst. Baltimore no longer had a need for him as Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle gave the Ravens what they wanted when they picked Hurst in 2018. In Atlanta, Hurst will have a grand opportunity to fill the high-volume void left behind by Hooper. As such, there is definitely a path toward Hurst becoming a low-end fantasy TE1 this season.

Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst caught three passes for 73 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14. He was targeted three times during the game.
Huddle Up: Hurst has received a handful of targets each game but may have a bigger role next week depending on the availability of Mark Andrews. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end if Andrews misses the Week 15 game.
