Baltimore Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst (foot), who was the 25th overall pick in last year's draft, said an X-ray showed he is now 100 percent after he had a screw removed from his foot. Hurst went down with a stress fracture in August and played in 12 games in his rookie season, catching only 13 passes for 163 yards and a touchdown. Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams will be free agents, so Hurst and 2018 third-round pick Mark Andrews could compete for playing time in 2019. Hurst is only 25 and has pass-catching upside, but he's still probably only an asset in dynasty/keeper leagues to begin next season. He could become a waiver wire pickup if he sees considerable playing time and proves he's healthy.
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is fully healthy again after a screw was recently removed from the foot he fractured last August. Hurst was able to play in 12 games in his rookie year.
Baltimore Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst pulled down all three of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's victory over the Buccaneers. He tied his season-high in receptions and it marked the fourth time this season that he totaled at least 20 receiving yards. The first-round draft pick has been inconsistent this year as this game is the first time in three weeks that he has been targeted. Hurst, who has just 10 receptions this season, only has marginal value in dynasty leagues.
Baltimore Ravens rookie tight end Hayden Hurst caught a season-best three of four targets for 25 yards. The 2018 first-round draft pick hasn't seen much playing time this year, but he did a nice job with his opportunities in this game. While the 25-year-old is seen as having the most potential of the team's tight ends, he remains a non-factor in the fantasy world.
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst posted two receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.
Fantasy Spin: Hurst's score was a connection with rookie QB Lamar Jackson late in the fourth quarter of garbage time, but it counts nonetheless. Before the closing moments of the game he had managed just one grab for three yards, so continue to avoid Hurst for fantasy purposes going into Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said the team needs to get rookie tight end Hayden Hurst more involved in the offense. "Its important to get Hayden involved going forward," coach John Harbaugh said. "Hes a first-round pick, talented guy. Hes practicing really well. Hes a rookie - thats the other side of it -- and he missed a significant portion. We just have to keep bringing him along. I expect him to play well. Hes very determined. Its important for us to have him rolling in our offense." Hurst so far has been a non-factor in the three games he's played since returning from foot surgery, catching just one pass for seven yards in his first game. He has a chance to break out in Week 8 against the Panthers, who have allowed the sixth most passing yards to tight ends (79.6 per game). Hurst has had to shake off rust as well as adjusting to the speed of the game and understanding the play calls. Quarterback Joe Flacco has gone 24-for-42 for 334 yards with no touchdowns and one interception over the middle this year, which is another reason to get Hurst going. Hurst has the most upside of Baltimore's tight end group, but three other tight ends have caught passes this year, making it even more difficult for Hurst to stand out. The upside is there, but he's hard to rely on in redraft leagues.
Baltimore Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst was not as involved in the offense as much as expected in Week 6 after having a solid week of practice. Hurst, who was on the field for 21 offensive snaps in his NFL debut (Week 5), saw action on just 18 snaps versus the Titans on Sunday. The 25-year-old rookie was unable to hook up with quarterback Joe Flacco on a short pass in the second quarter. He was also stuffed on a rushing attempt for no gain on the Ravens opening possession. Hurst, who is expected to develop into the team's main pass-catching tight end, can be ignored by fantasy owners for the time being.
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst failed to catch his only target in a 21-0 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 6.
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst has 'excited' offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg with his play in practice this week.
Fantasy Spin: An injury to start the season and a deep group of tight ends will make it tough for Hurst to make a major impact right away, but he is someone who needs to be stashed in dynasty leagues.
Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said first-round rookie tight end Hayden Hurst is on the rise after he made his NFL debut in Week 5. "He was knocking a little bit of rust off last week, and then, man I was excited, because he practiced really well [Wednesday]," Mornhinweg said. The 25-year-old rookie had only one catch on two targets for seven yards last Sunday. While he clearly has the most pass-catching upside for fantasy owners this year, it might take him another game or two to see enough snaps to make him a worthwhile fantasy starter. Don't forget that Baltimore also has Nick Boyle, Maxx Williams and rookie Mark Andrews, who are also more than capable of producing in a committee approach.
Baltimore Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst hauled in one pass on two targets for seven yards in his season debut against the Cleveland Browns. The first-round draft pick's reception came right after the Ravens intercepted Baker Mayfield on the Browns opening possession of the game. The Joe Flacco-Hurst connection set up the Ravens first points on the day as kickerJustin Tucker banged home a 44-yard field goal attempt. Hurst, who missed the first four weeks with a foot injury, is expected to have a role in the offense this year, but he was on the field for just 21 snaps versus the Browns. He is not worth a look in fantasy until the Ravens determine his exact role in their four-tight end system.
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) made his debut in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns and he finished with one grab for seven yards on two targets.
Fantasy Spin: It will take a while for the rookie to knock off the rust, and the Ravens also have Mark Andrews, Nick Boyle and Maxx Williams at the position. Hurst might take a while to make a splash significant enough to gain fantasy appeal in redraft leagues.
Baltimore Ravens rookie tight end Hayden Hurst (foot) will be active for the first time this season in Week 5 against the Browns. While Hurst has the most pass-catching upside of Baltimore's tight end committee that also includes Nick Boyle, Maxx Williams and rookie Mark Andrews, expect the Ravens to ease Hurst into the rotation. He's worth stashing if you're desperate at tight end, but he's a very risky play in his season debut.
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is officially active for the Week 5 game.
Fantasy Spin: Hurst will be making his season debut this week, which makes him a risky option because his role in the passing game is uncertain. Owners may want to see him play in a game before considering him a starting fantasy option.
Baltimore Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst (foot) is expected to play in Week 5. The 25th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft hasn't played yet this season despite almost suiting up last week against the Steelers. Though he is expected to split looks with tight ends Nick Boyle, Mark Andrews, and Maxx Williams, he should get plenty of chances to find the end zone against the Browns.
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) is expected to start the Week 5 game against the Cleveland Browns, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Hurst is a must-own option in dynasty formats, but fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach with him in redraft leagues.

Baltimore Ravens rookie tight end Hayden Hurst (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Browns. Hurst has been practicing the last few weeks but has yet to make his NFL debut. This could be the week. Hurst has the most upside of this committee tight end group, but he's likely to be eased in if he's active against Cleveland. Baltimore also has Nick Boyle, Maxx Williams and fellow rookie Mark Andrews that can mix in.

Fantasy Spin: Hurst may be a game-time decision again this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Owners may want to see him play in a game before considering him a starting option.
Baltimore Ravens TE Hayden Hurst (foot) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.
Fantasy Spin: Hurst appears to be trending toward a debut in Week 5. He was one of the team's top two picks in the 2018 NFL Draft. The club has been using a combination of Maxx Williams, Nick Boyle and Mark Andrews at the position, but Hurst easily has the most upside of all of them. He could be a solid TE2 in most fantasy leagues right off the bat with the potential for more.
