What to do with Hayden Hurst in Week 7 fantasy football

We go over Hayden Hurst’s fantasy football outlook ahead of the Falcons Week 7 matchup against the Lions.

Hayden Hurst is coming off his best game of the season this week. In the Falcons dominating win over the Vikings he caught all four of his targets for 57 yards and a touchdown. But does that mean you should trust him this week against the Lions?

Fantasy Football analysis: Falcons TE Hayden Hurst

The Detroit Lions don’t have a good defense. Let’s start there. They give up plenty of points and yards on the ground. However, their passing defense is in the top half of the league and has shown improvement as its gotten heather. The Falcons are likely to make efforts in the ground game early on and Hurst’s production may suffer at first. He’s a stay away unless you’re in a deep fantasy league and desperate for some tight end help. One week of solid production doesn’t necessarily mean consistency, especially on the Falcons.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Sit Hurst.
