What to do with Mark Andrews in the Divisional round of the 2021 NFL playoffs

We go over the fantasy football and DFS outlook of Mark Andrews ahead of the Ravens Divisional round matchup against the Bills in the 2021 NFL Playoffs.

Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews had four catches on six targets in last week’s Wild Card win over the Tennessee Titans. He finished that game with 41 yards. Those are decent numbers for the way tight ends have scored in fantasy this season, and Andrews has the chance at a big game this week in a Divisional matchup against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Football analysis: Ravens TE Mark Andrews, $5,000

Buffalo’s defense is tough on wide receivers, and as a result, opponents are leaning on their tight ends to move the ball. Opposing quarterbacks are targeting tight ends on almost a quarter of their throws against Buffalo this season, and no team has allowed as many catches and yards to tight ends as the Bills.

Andrews is regularly seeing six or more targets a game this season. He’s Lamar Jackson’s top option in the passing game. Last week, the Bills gave up 14 catches and 136 yards to the Colts top three tight ends. This has the makings of a great matchup for Andrews.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

I really like Andrews in fantasy lineups this week. Travis Kelce is going to get the most attention among the tight ends—he’s also the most expensive TE at $7,800—but Andrews has a fantastic opportunity at a ceiling game here.
