Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Just when it felt like Hurst was becoming one of the top-tier tight ends, he goes out and posts his third game of the season with fewer than 10 yards. I'm not sure what happened for him to get just two targets on the day, but we must consider it a blip on the radar considering he'd seen at least six targets in five of the last six games. He'd also finished as a top-14 tight end in six of his previous eight games, which is consistency that's hard to find at the tight end position. One thing I'd like to note, and it could be a coincidence, but all three games Hurst finished with fewer than 10 yards came with Julio Jones out of the lineup for all/most of the game. It's incredible how Jones opens things up for everyone else. The Raiders have allowed two massive games to Travis Kelce, a solid game to Rob Gronkowski, and nothing to anyone else, which include seven-target games to Hunter Henry and Noah Fant (neither of them topped 33 yards). Despite Kelce ruining their day twice, they've still allowed just 1.58 PPR points per target to tight ends, which ranks as the sixth-fewest in football. Football Outsiders have them listed as the third-toughest matchup for tight ends in their DVOA metric. Hurst isn't likely to put up a dud again, but this matchup isn't a great one. He's just a low-end TE1 for this game.He's the No. 6 tight end on the season, but here's a fun fact for you. He's the only tight end inside the top-15 who's seen fewer than 49 targets this year... he's seen 37 of them. This year has not been friendly to those who stream tight ends. Sure, Tonyan may be the No. 6 tight end on the season, but he's finished as a top-12 tight end just four times. While the Bears are one of the worst matchups in the league for offenses as a whole, tight ends have accounted for 22.2 percent of the fantasy production by skill-position players against them, which is the most in the league. Opposing tight ends have averaged 9.3 percent more fantasy points against the Bears than they do on the year, making this the 10th-best schedule adjusted matchup for tight ends. It's the only positional matchup that's above average against the Bears. It may not sound like much, but there have been eight tight ends who've finished as the TE18 or better against the Bears, which is a rock-solid floor for streamers, making Tonyan a high-end TE2 in this matchup.

FantasyPros
Hurst has been solid yet unspectacular this season, though he laid an egg in Week 11 with a catchless afternoon. He'll have a great shot at bouncing back in Week 12, particularly if Julio Jones is out. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Raiders are 13th against fantasy tight ends this year, Hurst is a boom / bust TE1 on a team that struggles when Julio Jones is not able to play at full strength.The Bears are 25th against fantasy tight ends, Tonyan may have a chance to hit TE1 status if he can steal a goal line touchdown from Aaron Jones or Davante Adams this week.
