That’s not even his best game of the year. The Falcons face off with the 1-4 Minnesota Vikings as they look for their first win of the season. The official source for NFL news, video highlights, fantasy football, game-day coverage, schedules, stats, scores and more.
Hurst made 48 receptions for 616 yards with one touchdown in 2016. But now there are also bye weeks with which to contend. The starting tight end for the Atlanta Falcons has decent enough stats.
"He's got great speed, great athleticism. The tight end has 17 receptions for 153 yards and one touchdown. It's worth noting that Hurst suffered a stress fracture in his foot during his rookie season and missed the first four games of the season. Then last week with Howard out he had just three receptions for 52 yards. "I've been incredibly impressed with Hayden's work ethic," Ryan said. Now that he's taken his talents to Cleveland, Hurst has an opportunity to fill that void and then some. Editor's note: This is the 10th and final story in a 10-part series counting down the top 10 Atlanta Falcons players our writers believe are most likely to have a breakout season in 2020.
The Baltimore Ravens selected him with the 25th overall pick, right before the Falcons picked Calvin Ridley at No. Pittsburgh does have a strong defense, though. Despite being a first-round pick, the 26-year-old Hurst fell short of expectations and down the depth chart in Baltimore. I know that you might feel inclined to start him now that Howard is out of the picture and Gronkowski is the star tight end for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers again. So, will Hurst step in and pick up where Hooper left off? Give it a week or two and see how those two gel, then you can start giving Schultz a look. For the sake of comparison, Hooper caught 73 passes for 1,447 yards and 10 touchdowns over the last two seasons in the Falcons' offense. He’s coming off his worst game of the year (one reception for six yards) and has disappeared at points before that this year. For now, see where he’s at and evaluate him.
But he’s worth the risk this week. In case you're wondering, Hurst ran the 40-yard dash in 4.67 seconds at the NFL combine, which was slightly faster than Hooper's time of 4.72 seconds. In 2017, he totaled 44 receptions for 559 yards with two touchdowns. Due to that, everyone has a little less time than usual to set up their fantasy football lineups this week. He does have two carries for nine yards and one touchdown. 40 Yard Dash: 4.67 seconds: 40 Yard (MPH): 17.52 (MPH) 20 Yard Split: 2.71 seconds: 10 Yard Split: 1.63 seconds: Bench Press: (N/A) reps (225 lb) Wonderlic: (N/A) (0-50) QB Ball Velocity: (N/A) (MPH) That means you could be without your star player. You could argue that this week is a good matchup for him. Pro Football Focus even wrote a piece outlining why Hurst is a fantasy football breakout candidate in 2020. The Falcons did their homework on the tight end prior to the draft and Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said they liked what they saw in Hurst. â¦ I feel like we've definitely gotten better.". Ryan called him "one of the fastest and most athletic tight ends" he's ever played with. Aside from missing time, the setback proved even more costly as Mark Andrews took advantage of the opportunity. Dan and myself included. Maybe once he can show the production is going to go up, then you can start putting him in your fantasy football lineups again. Hurst was targeted 39 times in the Ravens' run-heavy offense and caught 30 passes for 349 yards and two touchdowns in 2019. Over the same two seasons, Andrews has made 98 receptions for 1,404 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. Maybe quarterback Ryan Tannehill won’t finish with 40 attempts and a ton of yards, but a big lead might not completely deter them from the pass every once in a while, and Smith will clearly get his targets. Now there is an extra twist: we are deep enough into the season where you can start to feel out how a player is going to perform, sure. Copyright © ClutchPoints. Baltimore Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst in action against the Seattle Seahawks during an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 20, 2019, in Seattle. "Everyone knows that. If you're looking for positive signs and any early indicators that Hurst should thrive in the Falcons' offense, there's more than a few out there. The definition of breakout, for the purpose of this list, is a player who shows sudden significant improvement.
Although the New York Giants have struggled offensively and Evan Engram has not been very productive, this could be a big week for him. There’s a chance he has a good week, but that’s the same case with anyone. He is getting dangerously close to that “start him no matter what I don’t care if his quarterback lost his arms and he’s playing the greatest defense ever” territory. You also have two okay games, and one great game. Smith is going up against the Houston Texans this week. The Packers have been phenomenal this year, in basically all aspects of the game.
For starters, QB1 â Matt Ryan â has been impressed with what he's seen during workouts together this past offseason. All rights reserved. So could he capitalize in Week 6?
Again though, that was the game that saw the tight end score a rushing touchdown. With that in mind, you could probably make the argument that Dalton Schultz is a great start for Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals. No one is shying away from that. You have a truly disastrous game and a bad game saved by a touchdown. Dallas has too many weapons, though. Now that he's a part of Atlanta's potent passing attack â one that includes Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Todd Gurley â the stage is set for Hurst.
