Mark Andrews

The analysis and chatter in fantasydom has been that while Andrews is a TE Tier 1 the knock on him is his 10 TDs from last yr will regress as apparently that isn’t sustainable yr to yr.

Came across this tidbit:

Baltimore Ravens
Last year's Ravens ran just 21.6% of their offensive plays while trailing, by far the lowest rate in the league. That combined with their run-first mentality gave them the lowest pass-to-rush attempt ratio that we've seen across this nine-year sample. And it's going to be hard to repeat it. Of the 10 teams with a pass-to-rush ratio at or below 0.90 since 2011, all ended up being more pass-heavy the following year, with an average increase of 0.22. The Ravens are still going to be a run-friendly team, but it's not likely we see them rush the rock like they did in 2019.


So if the Ravens aren’t projected to run as much in 2020, their passing should go up which would benefit Andrews greatly as he’s one of the two main targets for Lamar. So while that 10 tds from 2019 may or may not be replicated you should see an uptick in his receptions and receiving yardage. I prefer that actually because TDs are not a dependable stat and can vary from yr to yr.

    His stock takes a massive hit if Baltimore signs AB. If not, I view him still as a safe TE1.

    AB has HOF stats behind his craziness.

    AB is Hollywood’s cousin, right?

    That's also another big factor.

    I see Andrews as a TE1 but not a Top 3 Te like his value suggests. Solid starter

    Don't think he can repeat last years Td's & don't see his numbers going up either. Additions of Dobbins & Duvernay should take up some targets as well.

    With that said, I don't think Lamar will run as much this year as he did last year.
