Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst is in for a big 2021 season under new head coach Arthur Smith, according to Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Butt expects the Falcons to run more play-action and says the Falcons could use Hurst like the Tennessee Titans did with Jonnu Smith in the red zone.
Huddle Up: Hurst caught 56 of 88 targets for 571 yards and six touchdowns in 2020. All figures were career highs. He finished as the team's No. 3 pass-catcher in targets and receptions, and he was second in touchdowns. Better looks in 2021 could allow for even more improvement and Hurst should be targeted as a late-round TE1 in early fantasy drafts.

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst caught five passes for 47 yards and one touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 16. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Hurst has not been a big part of the offense during the second half of the season but does have two touchdowns in the last two games. He should see a handful of targets next week and could be a possible low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst ended up with four receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Hurst found the end zone for the first time since Week 6. He has been rather erratic lately, and despite the score he should be relied upon outside of the deepest fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 in Kansas City.

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst caught one pass for seven yards against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Dec. 13.
Huddle Up: For the third time in four games Hurst caught one or fewer passes on Sunday. There was hope that he'd fill the statistical shoes of Austin Hooper this season, but outside of a nice four-game run in October/early November it just hasn't been there. Even at an underperforming fantasy position like tight end you should be able to find better options in Week 15.

Huddle Up: Hurst may see a few extra targets this week with Julio Jones unavailable. He has played well at times this season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Huddle Up: Hurst is coming off a disappointing Week 13 performance but has been targeted at least seven times in four of the last six games. He should have some success against the Los Angeles Chargers and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.
Huddle Up: Hurst hasn't found the end zone since Week 6, and his fantasy production has been highly volatile the last three weeks. He's a low-end TE1 in a nice matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14.

Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst caught one pass for nine yards against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13. He was targeted four times during the game.

Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Hurst will be able to play in the Week 13 game. He can be a starting option in all fantasy leagues if he plays, but players should have other options available in case he is ruled out.
