Hurst rarely played even half the snaps with Baltimore, but he was sixth in yards per target last year and was PFF's eighth-highest graded tight end. Dirk Koetter's offense likes to target the tight end, as Austin Hooper saw 60 targets through eight games last year and Tony Gonzalez saw 118 targets per season under Koetter. Add in that Hurst is likely to run routes out of the slot this year and Hurst's first year with the Falcons should be a big one.

Hayden Hurst: Matt Ryan talking up Falcons' new tight end

In a Tuesday Zoom session Matt Ryan said new Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst is one of the "fastest and most athletic tight ends I've ever played with."

Fantasy Impact

It's notable praise considering Ryan has played with both Tony Gonzalez and Austin Hooper. The latter had a great season with Atlanta in 2019 and leaves behind a plethora of opportunity on this pass-first Falcons offense. Hurst, a first-round pick by the Ravens in 2018, was acquired this off-season once the Falcons let Hooper sign with the Browns. He's a very interesting late-round option at fantasy football's most frustrating position.
