2022 RTSports Outlook

Andrews shattered most of his previous career highs, leading all fantasy tight ends in scoring. He finished ahead of Travis Kelce. Andrews had three games with double-digit receptions and five 100-yard showings. He had 15-plus fantasy points 11 of 17 games. He was super consistent. It was a little bit of a surprise season, seeing him get 153 targets. His previous high was 98, having 55 more targets. He had his first season with 100-plus catches, and 1,000-plus yards. Andrews has 700-plus yards three straight seasons. He is Lamar Jackson's favorite target in the passing game. Andrews is a big target that does well after the catch for a man of his size. He can be a big-play threat in the passing game. He will drop a few passes and isn't a top blocking tight end.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Andrews is going to have a hard time repeating last year but is a clear top-five fantasy option. Just don't be surprised if he sees a regression in targets, especially since the Ravens had some injury issues at receiver last year. He can still get around 90 receptions for 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Mark Andrews completely broke out in 2021. He went from averaging 12.2 PPR points per game in 2020, to a whopping 17.7 PPR points per game last season. He finished the season as the overall TE1, unseating Travis Kelce, who held the honors between 2016 and 2020. But did it come because of higher efficiency, or was it based solely on the Ravens' increase in passing volume? In 2020, Baltimore was dead last in pass attempts per game with 25.9. That led to Andrews seeing just 6.3 targets per game. In 2021, they threw the ball 35.9 times per game, 10 more times than in 2020. As a result, Andrews saw a large spike in targets, up to 9.1 per game. He ran 30.2 routes per game compared to just 23.6 routes per game in 2020. However, his targets per route run (TPRR) rate went from 26.6% in 2020 to 30% in 2021. That metric helps adjust for the increased passing volume in Baltimore and tells us Andrews was being targeted at an even higher rate than he was the year prior. And now Marquise Brown is out of the mix after being traded to Arizona. Brown missed one game last season, and in that game, Andrews saw 10 targets for a target share of 27.8%. He was also tied for fifth in the league last season in targets inside the 10-yard line with 11, two more than Travis Kelce. And he converts on those high-value targets, totaling an astronomical 26 touchdowns over the last three seasons, one more than Kelce over that stretch. The Ravens may not throw it 35.9 times per game this season, but when they do, you know it's going to Andrews. With that said, Kelce could dominate this season without Tyreek Hill, so you could argue for either one of these elite tight ends as the first one off draft boards in 2022.

Player Notes
Aug 6 5:13pm ET

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson and TE Mark Andrews won't play in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Spin: Neither player is dealing with injuries so this is just a precaution. Jackson remains a top-five option at his position while Andrews will look to repeat as the TE1 in 2022.

From TheHuddle

Aug 6 4:50pm ET

Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews won't play during the exhibition against Tennessee. With the veteran expected to be Lamar Jackson's No. 1 receiving option, John Harbaugh may continue to play it safe throughout the preseason. Charlie Kolar (hernia) will also be out, so Nick Boyle, Josh Oliver, Isaiah Likely, and Tony Poljan may all get some snaps on Thursday.

From RotoBaller

Jul 16 11:33pm ET

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews averaged 11.4 targets in the five games that QB Lamar Jackson missed last season compared to 8.5 targets in the games Jackson played.

Fantasy Spin: While Andrews has been Jackson's go-to target the last few years, especially in the red zone, it is worth noting that Andrews was leaned on even more heavily by Tyler Huntley. Andrews should still be a lock for TE1 production, but don't be surprised if his numbers dip just a bit from 2021 when he led tight ends in almost every meaningful category.
