Fantasy Analysis
Season Projections
Although Hurst was the Ravens' 25th overall selection in the 2018 draft, he routinely operated in a situational role behind Mark Andrews and blocking specialist Nick Boyle during the last two seasons. Hurst punched out of the 2019 regular season as the 34th-most productive tight end in the major fantasy scoring categories with some unremarkable career-high stats. Traded to the Falcons, Hurst is now a major breakout candidate. Atlanta is expected to use him in a full-time role as the replacement for Austin Hooper (Browns) in what should remain a high-volume passing attack. Hooper had to battle Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley for targets, but the former Falcon is coming off back-to-back top seven fantasy campaigns at least 70-plus receptions (he averaged 5.7 catches per contest last season) and at least 88 targets. Does Hurst have the pedigree to crank out top-seven fantasy tight end production? Coming out of South Carolina, Hurst was considered the complete package. He caught just 43 balls for the Ravens but didn't drop any passes. His skill set is very similar to Hooper's with one big difference - Hurst is faster with 4.67 seam-busting wheels. The opportunity is there for Hurst, and he has the skills to produce top-shelf numbers. Hurst is a high-risk/high-reward selection with top-10 upside.

Receiving: 55 Receptions, 608 Yards, 4 TD.
