Basic StatsHayden Hurst's Preseason Player Analysis

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.

Tee Higgins, WR CIN

7:18pm EST 11/27/22

Higgins dominates mediocre Bengals passing day

Bengals QB Joe Burrow threw for 270 yards and 1 TD on 59.5% completions in Sunday's win at Tennessee. WR Tee Higgins snagged that lone TD, en route to easily leading the team with 7 catches for 114 yards. TE Hayden Hurst tied Higgins for the target lead (9) and caught 6 for 57 yards. WR Tyler Boyd added just 2 catches for 16 yards. WR Ja'Marr Chase seems to be trending toward a Week 13 return against Kansas City. That would likely push Boyd out of fantasy-starter consideration.

Bengals WR Tee Higgins set season highs in targets (13), receptions (9) and receiving yards (148) in Sunday's win over the Steelers. He accounted for 33.3% of QB Joe Burrow's pass attempts, 37.5% of the completions and 41.7% of the receiving yardage. RB Samaje Perine was the only other Bengal to catch more than 3 passes. WR Tyler Boyd finished 2nd on the team with 7 targets but caught only 2 for 42 yards. TE Hayden Hurst caught 2 of 3 targets for 28 yards. Week 12 presents a Titans matchup that should further motivate the Bengals to go pass-heavy -- especially if RB Joe Mixon (concussion) is out. The team reportedly hopes to have WR Ja'Marr Chase (hip) back for that game. His return would hurt the fantasy outlook for Boyd more than Higgins.

Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Saints. He was listed as questionable – but was also questionable last week before posting a 6-53-1 line on an 81% snap rate.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that there's "optimism" Bengals WR Tee Higgins (ankle) will play today against the Saints but that the team wants to "make sure he's ready" during pre-game warmups. Higgins will carry some risk even if active after leaving last week's game early with the ankle aggravation. TE Hayden Hurst (groin) is expected to play through his questionable tag.

Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (groin) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Saints. Hurst has been battling this groin issue since Week 2. He was listed as questionable last week before posting a 6-53-1 line on an 81% snap rate. Assuming he's active, we'd feel comfortable using Hurst as a low-end TE1 this week.

Dynasty Write-up
As a free agent, Hurst landed in one of the best possible spots this winter. Cincy, after losing C.J. Uzomah to the Jets, acquired a potential 3-down starter to plug into its dynamic offense. Just note that Hurst will play on a 1-year deal.
