Fantasy Football: Mark Andrews safest Raven not named Jackson
When it comes to Fantasy Football, Baltimore Ravens fans can trust what they’ll get out of Mark Andrews:
Mark Andrews is one of the best tight ends in football, and one of the safest Fantasy Football options. Obviously, Lamar Jackson is the best Fantasy option on the Ravens roster. He’s capable of putting up big time numbers in the air and on the ground and won many weeks for fantasy players last year. If you want to get a Ravens player on your roster and Jackson goes too early, Andrews is the player to target.
The number one reason why Andrews is such a good tight end to draft is because he will get promised production. Last season the Ravens leaned on him in the passing game and nothing that happened this offseason should change that. Andrews led the Ravens in receptions last year and he probably will do that again in 2020.
Andrews had at least four receptions in 10 games in the 2019 season. If he’s healthy, he’s never going to give you a dud of a performance. Andrews had two games with eight receptions. He had four games with 90 or more receiving yards. He also scored 10 touchdowns last season, which is a very nice number. Andrews makes the most of his receptions and he can really boost your fantasy lineup.
When it comes to wide receivers, you probably want to stay away from what the Ravens are offering you. Marquise Brown could have a big year, but he had just 46 receptions last year. If you can get Brown in the mid rounds he could be a surprise star for your lineup. If he goes early oh well.

Behind Brown, the Ravens have a lot of inexperience at wide receiver. Even with reason for optimism, drafting Devin Duvernay or Miles Boykin is just a shot in the dark. You can draft them late, put them on the bench and wait to see what happens.
At running back the Ravens are loaded. Mark Ingram should be a good fantasy player, but it’s worth noting how loaded the running back spot is in Baltimore. Does J.K. Dobbins being put into an already crowded group hurt Ingram in Fantasy Football? Another mouth to feed in the backfield could get those numbers down just a bit for Ingram.
The Bottom Line:
Everything points to Andrews being the go to weapon in Baltimore. Everything points to Andrews being a Fantasy Football superstar. I also see a good bit of value in your draft for Andrews. George Kittle and Travis Kelce are going to be the first two tight ends taken, especially if you get a point per reception.
Darren Waller and Zach Ertz could sneak in front of Andrews in some leagues meaning that Andrews is a player you may be able to get way later than you should be able to.
