View TE Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Hurst has averaged just 2.2 receptions per game through 4 NFL seasons.
  • He ranks just 41st in yards per target (7.2) over the past 4 years among TEs with 40+ targets.
  • Cincinnati’s lead TE in 2021, C.J. Uzomah, tied for 21st at the position in total targets. He drew just 2 end-zone looks, tying for 40th among TEs.
  • The Bengals have ranked 29th in the league in TE target share each of the past 2 seasons.
  • Hurst signed a 1-year, $3.5 million contract ($2 million guaranteed) in free agency after Uzomah left for the Jets.
  • “We feel like that guy can be a real weapon and asset for us this year,” Zac Taylor told reporters in late March.
  • The Ravens traded Hurst to Atlanta, 2 years after drafting him in the 1st round (ahead of Lamar Jackson). The Falcons declined his 5th-year option after basically swapping a 2nd-round pick for him.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

There’s some scoring opportunity in what should be a robust Cincinnati offense, but it’s hard to like Hurst outside of best-ball formats. The Bengals haven’t been generous with TE targets since Zay Taylor arrived, and Hurst has already played his way off 2 teams that invested more in him than Cincinnati has.

Hayden Hurst ready for AFC Championship

Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (calf) isn't listed on the final injury report for Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Chiefs. He put in a full practice on Friday after being limited on Thursday. Hurst should be ready for his usual role this weekend.

Bengals TE Hayden Hurst was added to Thursday's injury report and limited in practice with a calf. He missed 3 games late in the regular season with a calf injury -- although it's unclear if this is related. Check back Friday afternoon for another update on Hurst's status for this weekend's AFC Championship game vs. the Chiefs. His absence would be significant.

Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (calf) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report for Monday night's game vs. the Bills. He'll play in that one after missing the past 3 games. Hurst has averaged 5.5 targets, 4.2 catches and 35 yards over 11 healthy games this season, ranking 8th among TEs in PPR points over that span. But the matchup against Buffalo's 2nd-ranked TE defense leaves Hurst outside our top-12 TEs for the week.

Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (calf) is out for Saturday's game vs. the Patriots. He was limited in practice all week and originally listed as questionable. So, unless he suffered a setback, Hurst seemingly has a good chance to return for Week 17. Mitchell Wilcox gets another game as Cincinnati's lead TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.
