2. Mark Andrews, TE, Baltimore Ravens
It was difficult to find a successful tight end for fantasy in 2020. The top four to finish the position in 2020 were the Chiefs’ Travis Kelce, the Las Vegas Raiders Darren Waller, the Green Bay Packers’ Robert Tonyan, and the Baltimore Ravens’ Mark Andrews.
Jackson often likes to throw to his playmaker tight ends on routine passing plays. It’s evident that Mark Andrews is Jackson’s favorite weapon at the position.
Like Jackson, Andrews also regressed at his position. In 2019, Andrews had 143.2 fantasy points and finished second overall in points at tight end. During the 2020 season, despite finishing in fourth place, Andrews had 112.1 points.
The bar for tight ends is set high in the NFL. Aside from his rookie year in 2018, Andrews has been in the top-five for fantasy points at his position. He will only continue to grow and build from the success of his quarterback.
The signing of Villanueva and the return of Stanley at left tackle will give Jackson plenty of time in the pocket to find Andrews on routes. Andrews’ mouth should be salivating for the upcoming season.
