Fantasy Football analysis: Bengals TE Hayden Hurst

Hurst is an OK floor play in PPR formats. He’s seen at least four targets in five of the past six games. Hurst hasn’t caught a TD pass in four straight games, so that limits his ceiling. Hurst is likely available on the waiver wire, making him an OK streaming option if your starter is on bye. This game has a low point total, so the books don’t expect a ton of scoring. If you’re playing Hurst, don’t expect him to break the fantasy football machine. But know that he’s likely good for around 8-10 fantasy points in PPR.
