2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Hayden Hurst is another player who has seen an interesting start to his career. His interesting journey began even before he was drafted by the Ravens, as he tried his hand at a baseball career before football. When that did not work out, he played at South Carolina as an older player and succeeded. However, he was older than the players around him, so it is difficult to tell if his dominance in college will ever translate to the NFL level. He is also already almost 27 years old, entering his third season as a pro.

Although he was drafted in the first round by the Ravens, two rounds before Mark Andrews, it was Andrews who dominated the tight end targets. In 2019 Andrews saw 98 targets and was one of the top fantasy tight ends, while Hurst only saw 39. However, Hurst did produce nicely on those targets (30 receptions for 349 yards and two touchdowns).

The Ravens traded Hurst to the Falcons this offseason since Andrews is clearly their top tight end, and the Falcons are hoping Hurst can replace Austin Hooper in this offense. This seems like it should not be too difficult, since Hooper is not a special athlete or talent overall. He benefited from the scheme and from the skill players around him, often leading to him getting wide open. Hurst flashed enough in his time with the Ravens to suggest he can fill this same role effectively.

The main question mark has to do with how quickly he can learn the offense, and how quickly he can establish a rapport with Matt Ryan. The fact that he is older should actually help him as he adjusts and learns the playbook, but the lack of an offseason program might prevent him from getting off to a fast start. He is a risky pick where he is being taken right now (early 7th round, as the 8th tight end off the board). However, since Hooper was on pace for 120 targets, 92 receptions, and 968 yards last season, it might be a risk worth taking.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Julio gametime decision, Hayden Hurst expected to play
Hamstring injury for Julio
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 28, 11:46 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons plan to assess how WR Julio Jones and his hamstring are feeling Sunday morning before deciding whether he can play, per source. Jones is questionable with hamstring injury. Falcons’ TE Hayden Hurst, listed as questionable for Sunday due to an ankle injury, is expected to play vs. the Raiders, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Even if Julio is active, he's going to be hard for fantasy owners to trust given the re-injury risk. The good news is we will get clarity 90 minutes before the early games kickoff as Atlanta hosts the Raiders at 1 pm eastern.


Injury "Too early" to say Julio Jones (hamstring) will play Week 5
Falcons WR still not quite 100 percent

Vaughn McClure (@vxmcclure23) on Twitter: "Quinn said if Julio is at his best with the hamstring, he will play. Too early to tell now." (Twitter/ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The coaches have said that Julio Jones needs to be "at his best" with the hamstring injury, and that's what's been keeping him from significant fantasy contributions this season. At this point Calvin Ridley is a solid bounce-back candidate for Week 5 and TE Hayden Hurst is shaping up as a back-end TE1.


Injury Julio Jones out for Week 3
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 27, 11:30 am

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons rule out Julio Jones (hamstring) for today’s game against the Bears. Means more Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage at receiver as well as tight end Hayden Hurst. Jones missed a game last year with a shoulder injury. (Vaughn McClure on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Julio is inactive for the Falcons. That will leave Ridley, Gage and Hurst as the main weapons for Matt Ryan today against the Bears. Christian Blake will get a bigger opportunity today as well.


Injury Julio Jones absent from practice again
Consecutive missed practices w/ hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 24, 12:00 am

Atlanta Falcons
We will see what happens tomorrow with Julio Jones' status. He usually fights through things but strained the injured hamstring. (ESPN - Vaughn McClure)

FFToday's Take: Jones' participation in practice on Friday (or the lack thereof) figures to be critical in getting an early read for his Week 3 status. The likelihood he made it worse in Week 2 would suggest he'll be on the doubtful side of questionable. Fantasy owners should expect be without him as a result. Atlanta's offense figures to suffer against the Bears without Julio, but fantasy owners should still start Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage and Hayden Hurst based on projected volume alone.
