Finishes season hot

Andrews secured eight of 16 targets for 85 yards and rushed once for no gain in the Ravens' 16-13 overtime loss to the Steelers on Sunday.

Analysis: To label the star tight end Tyler Huntley's security blanket would be a major understatement, as Andrews was targeted nine more times than the next-closest pass catcher, Marquise Brown. Andrews easily paced the Ravens in receptions and receiving yards as a result, a performance that closed out what was a spectacular last month-plus of the regular season. Andrews recorded at least six receptions and Sunday's 85 yards in each of this last five contests, a sample in which he also eclipsed the 100-yard mark on three occasions. The final surge left Andrews with a career-best 107 receptions and 1,361 receiving yards, numbers he complemented with nine touchdowns. Andrews will arguably be as or even more coveted a fantasy asset as Travis Kelce and George Kittle at the tight end position ahead of the 2022 season.

Automatic on six targets

Andrews caught six passes for 89 yards on six targets against the Rams on Sunday.

Analysis: This is clearly a strong performance on Andrews' part, yet relative to his recent standards of production is probably qualifies as a 'down' game. Andrews is on a memorable tear right now, and it's a testament to his rare abilities that a game like this can come across as almost disappointing. Andrews posted at least 115 yards and one touchdown receiving in each of the three games prior, and he drew double-digit targets in six of the eight preceding games. The Steelers held Andrews to one of his worst games of the year (four catches for 50 yards on nine targets) in Week 13, but Andrews will get his chance for payback against Pittsburgh in Week 18.

Keeps on raking

Andrews caught eight passes for 125 yards and one touchdown on 10 targets against Cincinnati on Sunday.

Analysis: The game was something of a blowout with the Bengals winning 41-21, but this is still yet another impressive showing by Andrews. He had to play with third-string quarterback Josh Johnson and was likely the primary concern of the Bengals defense, yet Andrews put up his third straight game with over 100 yards receiving and at least one touchdown. The Rams seriously might want to consider placing Jalen Ramsey on Andrews in Week 17, lest the star tight end make it four games in a row with blistering production.

Huge game in loss

Andrews caught 10 of 13 targets for 136 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Andrews once again was fill-in quarterback Tyler Huntley's favorite outlet downfield, which was clear from the start, as the tight end went for a season-long, 43-yard catch on Baltimore's first drive. He sustained his impact afterward, consistently getting the better of opposing safety Darnell Savage, and scored his respective touchdowns from eight and nine yards prior to halftime. Although Andrews was unsuccessfully targeted on a two-point conversion attempt for the win late in the fourth, he nonetheless enjoyed another dominant performance, as he's now managed at least 10 catches for 115 yards and a score in consecutive games. Whether starting signal-caller Lamar Jackson (ankle) returns in Week 16 versus the Bengals or not, Andrews approaches that matchup in fantastic form.

QB sub leads to huge game

Andrews had 11 receptions on as many targets for 115 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-22 loss to Cleveland.

Analysis: The big news out of this game was the departure of Lamar Jackson (ankle) early in the second quarter. Veteran backup Tyler Hundley took over under center and looked Andrews' way early and often. The 11 receptions tied the star tight end's season-best mark while also setting new career highs in total receptions (75) and receiving yards (926). Baltimore fans will be anxiously waiting on Jackson's injury diagnosis ahead of next Sunday's tilt against the Packers, but Andrews' fantasy managers can rest easy knowing that either quarterback can produce huge results for their tight end.

Anther four catches Sunday

Andrews caught four of nine targets for 50 yards during Sunday's 20-19 loss in Pittsburgh.

Analysis: It was a modest showing for one of Lamar Jackson's favorite targets, but Andrews still recorded at least four receptions and 50-plus yards for the 10th time in 12 chances this season. Unfortunately for Andrews, Jackson managed just one TD -- it went to Sammy Watkins with 12 seconds left -- and the quarterback's ensuing two-point conversion attempt slipped through the tight end's fingers. With a visit to the Browns on tap next Sunday, Andrews will look to replicate the line (4-65-1 on 10 targets) from the team's first matchup with its division rival from one week ago.

Stays hot with fifth TD

Andrews had four receptions (10 targets) for 65 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Browns.

Analysis: Andrews was actually robbed of an even bigger fantasy day when he made an amazing one-handed catch while the defensive back held his other arm, but the Ravens decided to accept the pass interference call -- perhaps they didn't believe the catch was made, but it was. The veteran tight end still produced a solid fantasy line despite having the big-chunk play wiped off the board. Andrews has been one of the more-consistent tight end options this season, posting 60 receptions, 761 yards and five touchdowns through 11 games.

Busy day in win

Andrews brought in eight of 10 targets for 73 yards in the Ravens' 16-13 win over the Bears on Sunday.

Analysis: The star tight end easily paced the Ravens' pass catchers in receptions, receiving yards and targets while showing immediate chemistry with emergency starter Tyler Huntley. Andrews has been trending in the right direction of late, upping his catch and yardage totals over that of the prior contest for three straight weeks. Andrews should once again serve as a key target irrespective of who's under center for a Week 12 AFC North clash against the Browns.

Gets into end zone in loss

Andrews secured six of eight targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 22-10 loss to the Dolphins on Thursday night.

Analysis: Andrews was one of the few bright spots of the night for the stagnant Ravens offense, co-leading the team in receptions and also recording a five-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter to give Baltimore temporary hope. The talented tight end's catch total was his second highest of the season, and he's now crossed the 60-yard threshold in five of the last seven games. Andrews next opportunity to extend that favorable stretch comes a week from Sunday in a Week 11 road matchup versus the Bears.

Nov 11, 2021 9:16 PM EST


Records five grabs in win

Andrews secured five of 10 targets for 44 yards in the Ravens' 34-31 overtime win over the Vikings on Sunday.

Analysis: Andrews tied Rashod Bateman for second on the team in receptions and was also the runner-up in targets. The star tight end has either five or 11 catches in six of his last seven contests, giving him a safe fantasy floor heading into a Week 10 road matchup against the Dolphins on Thursday night.

Nov 7, 2021 4:00 PM EST


Under 50 yards in loss

Andrews caught three of seven targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: Andrews cooled off after finding the end zone three times over the previous two games. He posted his lowest yardage total since Week 1, and Andrews' three catches tied his season-low from the opener. The standout tight end should bounce back after Baltimore's Week 8 bye.

Oct 24, 2021 3:03 PM EST


Scores in blowout win

Andrews caught five of his six targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-6 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: Andrews scored from nine yards out in the third quarter for his third touchdown in the past two games. The standout tight end also led the team in catches and receiving yards while sharing the team targets lead with debuting rookie Rashod Bateman. Andrews is up to 34 catches for 468 yards and three touchdowns this season heading into a Week 7 visit from the Bengals.

Dominant in comeback win

Andrews caught 11 of 13 targets for 147 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 31-25 overtime win against the Colts. He also hauled in a pair of successful two-point conversions.

Analysis: Andrews was the lone bright spot on Baltimore's offense in the first half and carried his momentum into the second, helping mount an 18-point comeback. The tight end finally scored his first touchdown of the season with a five-yarder in the fourth quarter, after which he secured the Ravens' two-point conversion. He then did the same thing on the next drive, with his second touchdown coming from a yard closer and his subsequent two-point catch occurring with merely 45 seconds left. Those efforts along with his consistency throughout Monday's contest fueled an unlikely victory and marked Andrews' best performance of the campaign. With two games of at least 105 yards in his last three outings, Andrews now approaches a tough Week 6 matchup versus the Chargers in fine form.

Oct 11, 2021 9:01 PM EST


Five grabs in Week 5 win

Andrews caught five of eight targets for 67 yards in Sunday's 23-7 win over the Broncos.

Analysis: For the third straight game, Andrews hauled in exactly five passes, although he wasn't able to match last week's 109-yard performance. The tight end led the Ravens in targets Sunday while tying James Proche for the lead in receptions, and while Andrews in on an early pace for his first career 1,000-yard campaign, he has yet to find his way into the end zone. He'll look to keep rolling in Week 5 against the Colts.

Oct 3, 2021 7:04 PM EST


First 100-yard game in two years

Andrews caught five of seven targets for 109 yards in Sunday's 19-17 win over Detroit.

Analysis: In addition to holding sole possession of the team lead in both catches and receiving yards, Andrews tied for the team lead in targets with Sammy Watkins and Marquise Brown. The tight end eclipsed his total of 77 yards from the first two games combined while topping 100 receiving yards for the first time since Week 2 of the 2019 season. After finding the end zone 17 times over the previous two seasons, Andrews is still in search of his first touchdown of 2021 heading into a Week 4 trip to Denver.

Sep 26, 2021 3:13 PM EST


Five catches in win

Andrews caught all five targets for 57 yards in Sunday's 36-35 win over the Chiefs.

Analysis: Andrews' performance was an improvement over his three-catch outing in Week 1, but he has still yet to score a touchdown after scoring 17 over the last two seasons. It seems like Lamar Jackson is looking to go downfield more, which has resulted in more targets for Marquise Brown and the newly-acquired Sammy Watkins. Andrews will look to get his first taste of the end zone against the Lions on Sunday.

Sep 19, 2021 11:23 PM EST


Inks $56 million extension

Andrews agreed to a four-year, $56 million contract extension with the Ravens on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 2018 third-round pick was entering the final year of his rookie deal with Baltimore, but he's now been locked up for the foreseeable future. Andrews has caught 156 passes for 2,105 yards and 20 touchdowns across his first three seasons, and he should continue to be a key cog in the Ravens' offense and a favorite target of quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Sep 6, 2021 4:53 PM EST


Healthy this week

Andrews is practicing Thursday, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The tight end dealt with severe cramping last Friday and didn't end up playing in Saturday's preseason game against Carolina, though the two weren't necessarily related given that the Ravens rested some other starters. In any case, Andrews is back at practice this week without any limitations, serving as Lamar Jackson's top target while the team's starting wideouts continue to miss practice with various injuries. The Ravens seemingly expect Marquise Brown (hamstring) and Sammy Watkins (undisclosed) to be ready for Week 1 at Las Vegas, while rookie first-round pick Rashod Bateman (core muscle) figures to miss at least a game or two.

Sits out Saturday's game

Andrews (undisclosed) didn't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Panthers, Ryan Mink of the Ravens' official site reports.

Analysis: The same applies to starting quarterback Lamar Jackson, as well as Baltimore's top wide receivers. In the case of Andrews, the tight end had a severe bout of cramping at Thursday's practice, so it's no surprise he was held out of action Saturday. It remains to be seen if Andrews suits up for the team's preseason finale, but either way, the 25-year-old approaches the 2021 regular season entrenched as the team's No. 1 tight end.

Leaves field with severe cramps

Andrews had a severe bout of cramping at Thursday's practice, but he avoided a trip to the hospital despite the arrival of a couple ambulances, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Analysis: It sounds like Andrews overexerted himself on a warm day at a joint practice with the Panthers, temporarily creating a scare. He seems to be okay, but the incident could impact his availability for Saturday's game... if the Ravens even planned to play him in the first place, that is. Coach John Harbaugh declined to comment Thursday when reporters asked him about playing-time expectations for QB Lamar Jackson and other key starters Saturday night against Carolina. In any case, Andrews could be in for a busier-than-initially-expected season if the Ravens' wide receivers can't stay healthy. In addition to Rashod Bateman's extended absence for core-muscle surgery, the team has Marquise Brown, Sammy Watkins and Miles Boykin dealing with day-to-day or week-to-week type injuries.
