Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Once one of the best matchups for opposing TEs, New Orleans is now rather stingy against the position. When Atlanta faced the squad two weeks ago, Hurst was blanked, but outside of that performance, he's drawn at least seven targets in four straight. I'm willing to go back to the well here and play Hurst as a top-10 option. This is a tough matchup, but it's unlikely he'll be held to a goose egg again. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We knew to bump Hurst down without Julio Jones in the lineup, which turned out to be right, though Hurst did turn in a competent performance for a tight end, as four catches and 48 yards will hardly bury your fantasy team. He's now totaled at least 48 yards and/or a touchdown in 8-of-11 games. Now onto a rematch with the Saints, a team that held him catchless in their Week 11 matchup, though his two targets didn't help. Tight ends have seen a league-high 23.7 percent of targets go to the their way against the Saints, though they haven't been the most efficient targets seeing that they've accounted for 19.4 percent of the fantasy production to skill-position players, which ranks as the 10th-most. The 5.86 yards per target they've allowed to the position ranks as the fourth-lowest in the league. If you were to remove the one massive game by Darren Waller against them (12/103/1 back in Week 2), they'd look like a much less appealing matchup. Outside of that game, they've allowed just 38.9 yards per game to the tight end position. Hurst has done enough to earn your consideration as a low-end TE1, but don't hesitate to sit him if you have a safer option.Removing last week from existence, Fant has totaled in-between 35-57 yards in seven games this season. He's also seen at least five targets in 8-of-9 games, which gives us what we want out of a tight end. If there's someone Fant would like to impress, it's the guy on the other sideline, who his game most resembles from the time they came into the league, as Kelce wasn't always a great blocker. When you adjust for the schedule they've played, the Chiefs are the eighth-best matchup for tight ends in PPR formats, as they average 12.5 percent more fantasy points against the Chiefs than they do in non-Chiefs games. Fant only totaled 3/38/0 on seven targets against them in the first game they played this year, but he was hobbling around all game as it was his first game back from his ankle injury. The game was also played in the snow. There have been five tight ends who've finished with at least five catches and 48 yards against them, which should present a decent floor for Fant in a game they fall behind. The 1.87 PPR points per target the Chiefs have allowed to tight ends is more than enough to go ahead and plug him in as a mid-to-low-end TE1.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 If Fant has an actual quarterback behind center, he has some upside against a Chiefs D that is 20th against fantasy tight ends.
