Raven QBs 'trust' TE Hayden Hurst to make plays

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Ravens tight end Hayden Hurst said both Joe Flacco and Lamar Jackson have quickly gotten comfortable throwing the ball to their new teammate.

“It’s been awesome,” Hurst said on Sirius XM NFL Radio with Bruce Murray and Brady Quinn. “They both bring different things to the table. Joe has an extremely talented arm. He’s been doing it for years, Super Bowl MVP. And, of course, Lamar brings a whole different dynamic with his legs to the game. Both of those guys can throw it where they want it. They’ll put it up even when I’m not open and they trust me to go make a play. And that’s what I tell them I’m going to do: ‘If you’re ever in trouble, just put it up. I’m going to make a play for you guys.'”

Fantasy Impact: 

Hurst is our No. 19 ranked tight end list. Rookie tight ends often need time to adjust to the NFL and don't make immediate fantasy impacts, but the position is such a big need for the Ravens that Hurst should get some chances to produce fantasy numbers. At this point, he's more of a late-round flier in deeper leagues.
