Who Is the Top Tight End on a New Team?

The Footballguys staff discuss veteran tight ends who changed teams over the offseason

Who is your top tight end on a different team in 2020? Are you targeting this player in a normal redraft league? Do you think they might be underrated by most of the fantasy community?

Austin Hooper, Rob Gronkowski, and Eric Ebron also notably changed teams, but Hayden Hurst is my best bet for 2020. Thinking back to Hurst and Mark Andrews drafted by Baltimore within the same class, it was an early Hurst injury which at least aided Andrews' rising in opportunity and being the TE1 there for their time together. With Austin Hooper gone from Atlanta, the Falcons traded for Hurst, who can replicate a good percentage, if not fully, Hooper's production within an offense centered on Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and now Todd Gurley. Hurst is one of my favorite upside bets to be a top-10 tight end but without paying a top-10 investment.

Jason Wood

I like Hurst well enough, but he's not in my Top 15, currently. I don't think we can simply take Hooper's role and plug Hurst into the same stats; the league rarely works that way. While I know a lot of us think Hurst has star potential, the Ravens are an incredibly smart team and made Hurst expendable while keeping Mark Andrews (the obvious star of the group) and Nick Boyle.
