|What do you get when you have two tight ends fighting for scraps on a low volume passing offense? You get little in the way of fantasy value. Even at such a volatile, shallow fantasy position like tight end, neither Edwards nor Hayden Hurst are worth much of a look. Edwards had an impressive rookie line of 34-552-3, and did have most of his best statistical games when Jackson was inserted into the lineup, but he saw more than 5 targets only two times all season and this is with Hurst missing 7 games due to injury. With both guys healthy again, I just can't see there being enough opportunities to go around to make them fantasy relevant as more than a TE2.
|Mark Andrews, Hayden Hurst to break out?|
Young Baltimore TEs poised to improve in second season

|Mark Andrews and Hayden Hurst could be in store for “breakout” seasons that put them on the field more often. Andrews put up great stats as a rookie, catching 34 passes for 552 yards and three touchdowns. If offseason practices are any indication, he could be a featured receiving target as a big body over the middle or even split out wide. Andrews has also focused on becoming a better blocker this summer, which would get him on the field in more situations. Hurst is arguably the team’s most complete tight end and has added 20 pounds of muscle this offseason. The 2018 first-round pick has the talent and opportunity to show he deserves to be the group’s leader. (baltimoreravens.com)|
FFToday's Take: The more likely breakout candidate is Andrews, as he is more of a "move" tight end than Hurst. Considering Baltimore could decide to start two rookie receivers and have a quarterback in Lamar Jackson who will probably be asked to make safe throws more often than not, Ravens tight ends should stay involved. Consider Andrews a strong TE2 and make sure to keep Hurst on watch lists.
