Andrews, Mark BAL TE

If I am looking for underdog TE's, I personally like Goedert or Gerald Everett.  Hayden Hurst + Andrews + Lamar is not a formula I am high on 

Agree on Goedert but everyone is paying attention to him and his ADP is likely to be overinflated by the time we get to August aka no value there anymore.

 

I am skeptical of Lamar Jackson as an NFL QB as well - all I'm saying is that Baltimore may not end up the FFL wasteland like the Redskins, for example. I would not invest early or often in Ravens players but a few calculated risks later in the draft could bear fruit. If it turns out they suck, then cut 'em and move on.

yeah

if your league is not shallow, then andrews should be drafted in every league and I think before Hurst.

I never roster 2 TEs in my redraft leagues but I am wondering this year about a flyer on Andrews late in the draft. You may have to give him 3-4 weeks to see what you have - if he hits maybe trade bait, or maybe a hedge if your TE1 underperforms for some reason. Agree that Lamar is a problem but the short stuff he can actually hit. 

 

Baltimore hires all the analytics guys this summer and that gives me some hope that they will actually play to Lamar's strengths in the offensive game plan. Who knows what we'll get out of the Ravens offense this year but I doubt it will be a re-tread of last year. 

 

I usually have a 2nd TE and last year it panned out, I had Zack Ertz as a keeper and either drafted or signed as FA early in season Eric Ebron. I later traded him for Davante Adams (his owner was trying to build a younger team and didn't want to trade his younger but not as good WR). Later I ended up with Greg Olsen when he returned and traded him for Josh Reynolds.  

 

Neither backup TE was ever going to start ahead of Ertz, and I parlayed one into a keeper player in Adams, who is probably my WR1 going forward. 

 

Never know when that backup could be a good trade asset.

I normally carry just one tight end and stream a second if need be. That's too valuable of a roster spot for a backup tight end. But I could see piggy backing an Ertz/Goedert combo if I thought I had a spot for him.

We pay for $2 for every player added to your roster (trade, FA, etc) during the season, so streaming a position is usually not worth it. I rarely carry a second D, and same for kicker position. Plus our bench has 9 slots same as our starters (with no position restrictions) so plenty of room to stash extra guys. Basically I use what would be backup slots for K/D maybe even TE for extra QB/RB/WR. 

 

I know its not a common setup.

Gotcha. That makes total sense. I like that setup.

Actually I think I would too.  Make fewer more important moves.  The current way is fine but I think less watching the waiver wire would be nice.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec reports second-year TE Mark Andrews has been the Ravens' "most dangerous and productive offensive player" at training camp.

Zrebiec notes Andrews looked lost at this time last year as a rookie, but things have obviously changed as he heads into year two. Andrews posted a 34-552-3 line as a rookie, one of the better first-year tight end outputs in league history, and looks poised to build on it. Andrews showed solid rapport with Lamar Jackson the second half of last year and in the playoffs. With the Ravens not having a whole lot at receiver, Andrews could realistically see 70-plus targets after getting 50 in 2018.

I would expect Jackson to hit Andrews a lot. Rookie and inaccurate QB’s tend to rely on the TE’s and RB’s a lot...

 

not to mention Andrews has played well in camp.....I have targeted him in most mocks, but I throw in a little TJ Hockenson to change it up

updated thoughts on Andrews? Someone sent me a pretty good offer to buy Andrews, so I'm considering it

I also have him along with Cooks.

 

I'm keeping Andrews, trying to trade Cooks and also get Waller.

 

I believe despite all the long passing from Lamar, Andrews will be his first look once they start playing against better defenses.

Happy I hit on a TE, i drafted Andrews, Burton, and Goedert.  Wish I had taken Hockenson, he's the real star.  But hopefully Andrews will stay valuable.

so I accepted the offer, just in case anyone could use some kind of in-season trade reference/"value"...

I gave Andrews.

I got 2020 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. I feel like i could've/should've gotten a little bit more (at least a 1st and 2nd), but I now have a competitive team with four 2020 1sts to acquire some stud players mid-season. fyi fwiw, 14-team dynasty, not IDP, the 3rd has some value, the 4th and 5th not so much. But it's easier to package up next season picks to acquire mid-season talent than bundle players, eventho Andrews is still on my taxi squad.

I drafted him as my backup to Delanie Walker and once Walker goes down with his yearly injury, I know I'm gonna be just fine

You got four high picks for Mark Andrews? What?!

Re-read his post, he says it is a dynasty league, so depending on how many players are on the roster for dynasty their rounds of the draft are X rounds later. 

 

My keeper league has each team protecting 5 players, so our first round is like the 6th in a re-draft. I always try to mention that when discussing draft picks in our league, so the value is more clear.

The way the Ravens use the TE's, Mark Andrews will be a huge asset to any Fantasy team. He is the main TE in the Ravens system and is primed for a breakout season.

I'm not sold on the Ravens passing attack, lets see if they do that a few more times with their opponent actually trying to win the game.

Surely the Ravens aren't going to be the team they were week one. That was more the product of a weak Miami Dolphins defense. They are still a run first offense, but they still like to utilize the TE's quite a bit in the offense and that will continue. I also think having that speed now with Hollywood Brown will open up the offense a bit more and give them more options. I do still think though this team is a run first team.
