All Atlanta has done this off-season has signaled that they're not very high on Hurst's outlook for 2021 and beyond. They drafted Kyle Pitts at No. 4 overall and, shortly after, declined Hurst's fifth-year option. Can Hurst still have fantasy relevance in this offense? Yes, absolutely. However, his stock took a dramatic hit once Pitts entered the building.

Hayden Hurst will not have fifth-year option exercised by Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons will not exercise the fifth-year option on TE Hayden Hurst, making him a free agent ahead of the 2022 season.

Fantasy Impact

This makes sense since the Falcons spent the 4th overall pick on a generational tight end in Kyle Pitts. Hurst is going to see his role as a pass-catching tight end decrease this season with Pitts working as the team’s primary pass-catching tight end. Hurst likely falls outside the top-20 tight ends this season.
