Bottom Line

Andrews is really good. Baltimore’s offense is really good. Those two combine to make him one of the perennial best bets for fantasy points at his position. And fantasy drafters’ fascination with new toys is pushing Andrews behind Sam LaPorta, Trey McBride, and Dalton Kincaid in many drafts. That makes this proven producer a solid-to-strong value for 2024 drafting – and perhaps even a good dynasty buy.

What We Learned Last Year

  • We learned that Andrews’ left leg is not indestructible. He suffered a fibula fracture and ligament damage in the ankle on a Nov. 16 tackle by Bengals LB Logan Wilson. That knocked Andrews out of Week 11 in the first half and kept him out until Round 2 of the playoffs.
  • Andrews also missed Week 1 with a quad injury.
  • His target share slipped in his healthy games. Andrews ranked fourth among TEs for the season, and his share for healthy weeks 2-10 would have landed him third. But his 23.4% over that span came in lower than …
    • 2022: 28.2% (led all TEs)
    • 2021: 26.6% (led TEs)
    • 2020: 25.4% (third)
    • 2019: 24.1% (third)
  • Last year’s high ranking among TEs makes it clear that’s not an alarming drop. But it likely signals impact from WR Zay Flowers’ arrival.
    • Flowers drew 23% target share across Andrews’ healthy span as a first-round rookie.
  • Andrews’ other numbers pretty much lined up with his career to date.
    • He averaged 4.8 receptions and 57.9 yards per game across nine healthy outings. That marked a dip of 0.1 catches but a 1.4-yard improvement vs. 2022.
    • Andrews saw his aDOT reach a career low but still improved his yards per catch by 0.5 vs. 2022.
    • The 2.0-yard dip in aDOT (according to PFF) coincided with the first season of OC Todd Monken and was shorter than the aDOTs for any Baltimore WR.
  • Andrews remained a key red-zone piece, easily leading the team in targets in that range over his nine full weeks (17 vs. Flowers’ 12). He also led teammates in end-zone targets and catches.
  • Andrews enjoyed a career-high catch rate. A healthy season for Lamar Jackson helped, after the QB missed five games each of the previous two years.
  • Baltimore tied for just 30th in the league in pass attempts but dropped back more often under Monken. They climbed from 12th in neutral-situation pass rate to seventh.

What to Expect in 2024

  • Andrews played a limited role in his playoff return (a loss to the Chiefs). But the timing of that return should mean the left leg isn’t an issue for 2024.
  • Baltimore shed WR Odell Beckham Jr. this offseason. Beckham ranked second on the team in total targets last year, third in receptions per game, and first in total end-zone targets.
  • The biggest import among pass-catchers was fourth-round WR Devontez Walker.
  • That combo should mean no added target competition for Andrews, though HC John Harbaugh has said he expects to get more out of WR Rashod Bateman this season.
  • TE Isaiah Likely might look like a threat after averaging 3.5 catches and 53.7 yards per game from Week 12 through the end of last season. But Likely totaled 8 receptions in the 10 games he shared with Andrews. And half of those came in a blowout win over Seattle that Andrews and some other starters left early.
  • Andrews’ target share might stay down, with Flowers on track to be the biggest target earner among Baltimore WRs in a while. But the TE’s 2023 fantasy-scoring average for his nine healthy games was the second-highest of his career – and less than 0.05 behind Travis Kelce’s lead.
  • This version of the Baltimore offense – which added RB Derrick Henry for $9 million guaranteed – should keep the efficiency up in the passing game.

Mark Andrews, TE BAL

Ravens activate Mark Andrews (ankle) from IR

The Ravens have activated TE Mark Andrews (ankle) from IR. That solidifies his readiness to play Sunday against the Chiefs. Will he immediately reclaim his pre-injury role? TE Isaiah Likely has played well with Andrews out, and OC Todd Monken told the team website that will factor into how they determine usage. Ultimately, Andrews makes for a risk-reward fantasy play this weekend. Likely gains risk with the return of Andrews but remains in play for small-slate DFS contests. And QB Lamar Jackson can only gain upside with the return of -- historically -- his top target.

The Ravens expect TE Mark Andrews to play in Sunday's AFC Championship vs. the Chiefs, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It'd be Andrews' first game since suffering a cracked fibula and ankle ligament damage on November 16. Andrews practiced all last week, including full workouts on Wednesday and Thursday, but was held out of the Texans game. We'll look for more info on how big a role Andrews is expected to play on Sunday and update his projections accordingly.

The Ravens aren't expected to activate TE Mark Andrews (ankle) from IR ahead of Saturday's game against the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Andrews has been a full practice participant this week, so we'd guess he'll be ready for next weekend's game -- should Baltimore beat Houston this weekend. His absence will keep TE Isaiah Likely in the starting lineup against a defense that's been third most friendly in the league to TE scoring. Likely sits fourth among TEs in our rankings for the Divisional Round. But he sports upside beyond that position.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Texans. He was a full participant in the final two practices of the week, but HC John Harbaugh said Thursday that Andrews' status for the Houston game remains "up in the air." We'll see if he's activated from IR on Friday afternoon.

Ravens TE Mark Andrews (ankle) was upgraded to full participation in Wednesday's practice but was non-committal about his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Texans. “I think it’s how I feel at the end of the day,” Andrews said. “Just knowing how good this team is, how good our players are, how good our tight ends are, if I feel like I’m going to be helpful to the team, I’ll go. If I feel like I’m close but not there, I’ll let these guys go and hopefully get that next weekend.” Andrews fractured his fibula and suffered ligament damage to his left ankle on Nov. 16. He'll be a little over nine weeks removed from the injuries on Saturday. "It’s gotten a lot better week by week," Andrews added. "We’ve made a lot of progress.” We'll see how he's listed on the final injury report tomorrow and look for further updates on the plan for Andrews if he plays.
