Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst has become an afterthought in his team's offense after a solid Week 1, drawing just six targets over his past two games. Hurst will look to get things going again in Week 4's home matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Minnesota has been a decent matchup for tight ends through three weeks, allowing the 11th-most fantasy points per game to the position. Hurst remains a risky play thanks to his lack of involvement in the offense of late, leaving him as a low-end TE2 in Week 4.

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst turned in a slow outing in a Week 2 loss to the New Orleans Saints, catching three passes for 20 yards. He will look to bounce back in Week 3's road matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle has been average against tight ends through two games, allowing the 13th-most fantasy points per game to the position. Hurst is not a focal point in the Carolina offense but he has drawn 10 targets through two games. He sets up as a mid-tier TE2 in Week 3.

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst caught all three of his targets for 20 yards in a 20-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 2. Hurst was quiet for much of the game, with most of his production coming via a nine-yard catch on his team's final drive of the contest. Hurst had a big Week 1 with 41 yards and a touchdown but he came back down to earth in Week 2. He will be a TE2 in Week 3 when he takes on the Seattle Seahawks.

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst turned in a solid effort in his team's Week 1 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, catching five passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 24-10 loss. Despite the Panthers losing, Hurst's performance was a bright spot as he led the team in all receiving categories and scored the only Carolina touchdown. Hurst will look to stay hot in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints represent a tough matchup for Hurst as they allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to tight ends back in 2022. That should be reason enough for fantasy gamers to temper expectations for Hurst in Week 2.

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst caught five of his seven targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 24-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1. Hurst wound up leading the Panthers in all receiving categories in his debut game with the team. He hauled in the first touchdown pass of Bryce Young's career on a four-yard pass from the rookie signal-caller in the second quarter. Hurst is unlikely to finish as the Panthers' top receiver in most weeks but he showed on Sunday that he can be a serviceable fantasy tight end moving forward.

Carolina Panthers tight end Hayden Hurst will take on the Atlanta Falcons on the road in Week 1. Hurst is making his debut for the Panthers after spending the 2022 season with the Cincinnati Bengals. The veteran tight end draws a great matchup as the Atlanta defense allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends in 2022. Hurst may have trouble capitalizing on that matchup, however, as the Panthers' passing attack is an early-season question mark. Treat Hurst as a low-end TE2 in fantasy for Week 1.
