Hurst was essentially written off completely when Kyle Pitts was drafted at No. 4 overall. While it's highly unlikely that Hurst ever provides consistent weekly fantasy production, he should be involved enough in this off-season to still be on the redraft radar. Arthur Smith will deploy a heavy amount of 2TE sets and there's the strong possibility that we see Kyle Pitts flexed out wide frequently this season. This means that Hurst will be on the field quite a bit this season and someone else in this offense will need to step up outside of Calvin Ridley and Pitts. He's not worth drafting over some of the other players at the TE position that have a more clear and defined role in their offenses, but simply monitor Hurst and his involvement as we move into the season.

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.
