There's no bigger disparity in the NFL right now between upside and ADP than Hurst. Hurst is currently going outside the top-12 tight ends, but has a very good chance and path to finishing as a top-5 option at the end of the season. Hurst is a talented tight end who is finally going to be given an opportunity in Atlanta's dynamic offense. He's a home-run pick in the late rounds of your draft. 
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
All the way up to my top-12. Matt Ryan throws to the tight end position. If Hurst can stay healthy, he could be a sneaky top-5 TE. 
Kevin Wheeler

Former first round pick, missed opportunity in Baltimore, MAJOR upside in Atlanta. Hurst had 62 targets total in 2 years while playing for Baltimore, 43 catches, 512 yards, and 3 Touchdowns. Austin Hooper last year had 97 targets, 75 catches 787 yards and 6 touchdowns. The targets and opportunity are their in Atlanta for Hurst to crush. @NickSarnelliGesicki has upside profile attributes & positive opp trends: 97th percentile athlete, rising 2nd half snap share, top-5 total target distance, top-5 contested catch rate, P. Williams rehabbing torn acl, no receivers drafted, catches his own passes. @Fantasy_Mansion

Hurst was a 1st round pick for the Ravens just three seasons ago but has been overshadowed by Mark Andrews. Apparently, the Falcons thought quite a bit about his upside as well, sacrificing a second-round pick for the tight end. We know Matt Ryan loved throwing to Austin Hooper and now with him, Devonta Freeman and Mohamed Sanu all gone, there are 200+ targets up for grabs. Hurst should see nearly 100 which could make him a TE1 by season's end.Gesicki showed some flashes last season and is an elite athlete but the Dolphins will return Preston Williams, Jakeem Grant and Albert Wilson from injury so Gesicki will be hard-pressed to even sniff the 89 targets he was given last season. Even if he does, the efficiency just isn't there for him to be a top 12 fantasy tight end.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Opportunity means everything to a tight end and Hurst is going to walk into plenty of it. The Falcons have used their tight end quite heavily over the last couple years and they really didn't replace Mohamed Sanu. Instead of trying to re-sign Austin Hooper, they decided it'd be better to trade a second-round pick for Hurst, showing just how much they valued him. Don't think he's not talented just because he played behind Mark Andrews. He should see 80-plus targets in 2020 en route to a top-12 finish.The good news? Gesicki totaled 89 targets last year, which ranked seventh among tight ends. The bad news? He finished as the No. 11 tight end and now has Chan Gailey as his offensive coordinator. In the eight years Gailey has called an offense, his tight ends have finished 28th or worse in seven of them, with Tony Gonzalez being the only one who succeeded. Gesicki has averaged a measly 6.4 yards per target in the NFL to this point, which is bottom of the barrel, so you can't say that he's the difference maker that Gailey needs to feature. Drafting him as a TE1 is too risky.
Seth Miller

ATL just traded a 2nd round pick for Hurst, knowing that he's been a poor blocker his first 2 years in the league. Below AVG on 389 RUNBLKs, and just 8 PASSBLKs to his name. His poor blocking is good news for how it appears they might plan on using him. Hooper was rarely blocking, and was in for twice the amount of pass snaps as Hurst last year. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 Gesicki had 570 yards from scrimmage and 5 touchdowns in his second season. He carved out a major role in the offense and he could build on that, especially if the Dolphins find a solid quarterback in the NFL Draft.
