Falcons TE Hayden Hurst (ankle) is questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so he obviously won't be at 100% if he suits up. We'll get Hurst's game status by noon ET on Sunday.
Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (groin) is not listed on the final injury report for Thursday night's game vs. Miami after putting in full practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. He was limited to a 51% route rate last week, but it looks like he's healthier heading into this one. Hurst has a plus matchup against the league's 32nd-ranked TE defense.
Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He practiced all week but was limited on Wednesday and Friday. The groin issue adds a bit of risk to his Week 3 fantasy profile.
Bengals TE Hayden Hurst (groin) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jets. He went from a limited practice on Wednesday to a full workout on Thursday and then limited again on Friday. It’s unclear if that was planned or a sign of a setback. A healthy Hurst looks like a fringe TE1, but this groin issue adds risk to his Week 3 profile.
Bengals TE Hayden Hurst ran well ahead of #2 TE Drew Sample in Sunday's OT loss to the Steelers, playing 75% of the team's offensive snaps to Sample's 29%. More importantly, Hurst ran a route on 78.8% of Joe Burrow dropbacks, compared with Sample's rate of just 15.2%. Burrow's 53 pass attempts inflated volume for everyone, but Hurst's 8 targets ranked 3rd on the team and accounted for a solid 15.1% of total attempts. He caught 5 for 46 yards. Hurst looks like he belongs among the top 20 fantasy TEs going forward. Beyond that, we'll see -- including what Tee Higgins' return from a Week 1 concussion means for target shares.
Bengals HC Zac Taylor gave his assessment on new TE Hayden Hurst. “Hayden has a really good catch radius,” Taylor said. “He has got good burst. He has got a good understanding and feel for some of these concepts in the red zone. He’s a really good weapon for us on the field.” Hurst will fill the role left by C.J. Uzomah, who ended 2021 with 49-493-5. Consider Hurst a streaming option in opportune matchups.
