Hayden Hurst Tallies Four ReceptionsSeptember 13, 2021 | 03:35 PM
Atlanta Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst caught four passes for 28 yards in a 35-6 loss to the Eagles in Week 1. Hurst was on the field a fair amount Sunday, playing 60 percent of the snaps compared to rookie Kyle Pitts' 68 percent mark. Head coach Arthur Smith utilized two-tight end sets often during his time in Tennessee- and it appears he could be bringing such usage to the Falcons' tight end room. Atlanta's offense, Matt Ryan in particular, will need to put forth a better showing in the coming weeks to consider someone like Hurst for fantasy purposes. He could have sneaky value in the right matchup some weeks.
