The tight end position has seen a little bit of everything. Every week it seems we have a new names to consider. Some young ones developing right on time and that’s very encouraging for what is typically a talent-starved position. Then there are the journeymen whose names we kick around and stream each week.
It’s not always easy to navigate this feast or famine position, but we’re always looking out for the right matchups. Right now, let’s see which ones do NOT pass the grade for Week 6.
Hayden Hurst, Atlanta Falcons at Minnesota Vikings
Hurst has finished out of the top 15 tight ends in four of the first five weeks. He’s had three touch matchups and two easy ones. He scored in both of the easy matchups, and still ended up as the TE18 in Week 3. The bad news is that Hurst is in the middle of a block of games that could restrict his fantasy potential even more. Green Bay and Carolina were bad matchups, but the next three weeks are Minnesota, Detroit and Carolina again.
Julio Jones is expected to be back for Week 6 and that’s going to cut in on Hurst’s action and to be honest, Hurst himself is dealing with a back injury. There’s a lot building to this sit recommendation and unfortunately for his owners, he’s probably going to ride the bench for awhile.
