Sunday update: Mark Andrews is NOT expected to play on Tuesday against the Cowboys, per Adam Schefter.
The Baltimore Ravens will most likely be without tight end Mark Andrew this week when they face the Dallas Cowboys for a Monday afternoon matinee game. Andrews tested positive for COVID-19 last Sunday, one of the last players among the gaggle of them to test positive for the virus.
Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens TE Mark Andrews
Andrews has to quarantine for 10 days before he can return, unless he tests negative twice within 24 hours five days after his first positive test. Either way, it’s a stretch to think that he will be able to play this week, even with a Monday game.
Andrew leads the team with 38 receptions and six receiving touchdowns. His 454 receiving yards are second on the roster.
Nick Boyle would normally be the backup tight end, but he landed on the injured reserve list after suffering a knee injury in the Ravens’ Week 10 game against the Panthers. Sean Culkin was active for last week’s game, but he didn’t see a single target and would not be worth fantasy consideration.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Sit Mark Andrews this week, unless he’s active.
