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.

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.
