Hayden Hurst, TE (CIN)

Catches one pass Sunday

Hurst caught his only pass for 33 yards during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints.

Hurst (12 snaps) returned from a one-game absence due to COVID-19 protocols and split backup duties with Patrick Hesse (11), but the former was the only one targeted in the pass game. Despite being targeted once, Hurst finished third on the team in receiving by recording the Falcons' longest offensive play of the game, setting up their first touchdown of the contest. In his second season with Atlanta, Hurst played in 13 games and recorded 26 receptions for 221 yards, the lowest totals since his rookie year in Baltimore. After coming off a career-high season (56 catches for 571 yards and six touchdowns), Hurst's fantasy upside was negatively impacted by the addition of rookie tight end Kyle Pitts, but Atlanta's whole offensive unit struggled to get going after Calvin Ridley (personal) left the team ahead of Week 8.
