Scratched from Sunday's game

Andrews is inactive for Sunday's game in Cincinnati.

Analysis: With QB Lamar Jackson (knee) and now QB Tyler Huntley (shoulder) both unavailable, the Ravens have also decided to rest other key players. The inactive list includes two other starters who weren't listed on the final injury report -- RB J.K. Dobbins and G Kevin Zeitler -- and it's possible others will be inactive but not play much or at all.

Bounces back with 100-yard game

Andrews corralled all nine of his targets for 100 yards in Sunday's 16-13 loss to Pitssburgh.

Analysis: Andrews had been struggling in backup quarterback Tyler Huntley's previous three starts (8-93-0), but the duo surpassed its entire production over that span in one fell swoop. While this was a step forward for Baltimore's struggling passing attack, the star tight end's fantasy value still fluctuates greatly with and without Lamar Jackson (knee). If the latter is forced to miss Baltimore's regular season finale, then Andrews' projections will understandably be lowered against the Bengals in Week 18.

Three catches Saturday

Andrews caught three of five targets for 45 yards in Saturday's 17-9 win over the Falcons.

Analysis: It wasn't much production, but the tight end led Baltimore in catches and receiving yards on a day in which Tyler Huntley completed only nine passes. Andrews has seen his numbers plummet without Lamar Jackson (knee) under center. managing just a 8-93-0 line on 18 targets over the last three games, but with the Ravens having locked up a playoff spot Saturday, the team may not want to risk their starting QB in Week 17 against the Steelers.

Another quiet game

Andrews recorded three receptions on seven targets for 31 yards in Saturday's 13-3 loss to the Browns.

Analysis: Andrews led the team in targets, but the results didn't follow. He made his first catch with only 18 seconds left in the first half, and it resulted in a 19-yard gain -- his longest of the day. Since Lamar Jackson (knee) has gone down, Andrews has managed only 48 yards on 13 targets across two contests.

Dec 17, 2022 5:18 PM EST

Does little with six targets

Andrews recorded two receptions on six targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 16-14 win over the Steelers.

Analysis: The Ravens threw for only 104 yards as third-string quarterback Anthony Brown played the final half of the game. Andrews matched Demarcus Robinson for the team lead in targets, though that ultimately didn't translate to a productive performance. While it wasn't necessarily indicative of his own poor play, Andrews failed to reach 50 receiving yards for only the third time this season.

Paces pass catchers in win

Andrews brought in four of seven targets for 53 yards and rushed once for one yard in the Ravens' 10-9 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

Analysis: Andrews led the Ravens' air attack in receiving yards and checked in second in targets while working the last three quarters with Tyler Huntley as his quarterback in place of Lamar Jackson (knee). Andrews now has at least four grabs in three straight games, but it remains to be seen how his production will be affected if he's forced to operate with Huntley as his quarterback again in a Week 14 road divisional clash against the Steelers.

Dec 4, 2022 3:23 PM EST

Fades after hot start

Andrews recorded four receptions on seven targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Jaguars.

Analysis: Andrews tallied four catches for 33 yards on Baltimore's opening drive and appeared to be in for a big performance. While he still led the team in targets, he slowed significantly from that point, managing only a 17-yard catch and a two-point conversion across the rest of the game. Andrews also dropped a pass in the end zone and has not scored a touchdown or topped 65 receiving yards since Week 6.

Stays busy in return

Andrews (shoulder/knee) brought in six of eight targets for 63 yards in the Ravens' 13-3 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Analysis: The veteran tight end returned from a one-game absence and finished second in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the afternoon for the Ravens. Andrews now has at least Sunday's reception and yardage totals in three of his past four injury-shortened games, sending him into a Week 12 road matchup against the Jaguars with some momentum.

Nov 20, 2022 1:57 PM EST

Making return Sunday

Andrews (shoulder/knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Analysis: After sitting out the Ravens' Week 9 win over the Saints, Andrews erased most of the concern about his health coming out of a bye week by practicing on a limited basis Wednesday and Thursday and then upgrading to full activity Friday. The Ravens still elected to give Andrews a designation heading into the weekend, but neither the knee nor the shoulder issue will keep him off the field. Andrews is expected to step back into his typical high-snap role as the Ravens' clear top tight end, and he should be quarterback Lamar Jackson's undisputed No. 1 target while both Rashod Bateman (foot) and J.K. Dobbins (knee) reside on injured reserve.

Nov 20, 2022 8:32 AM EST

Expected to return Sunday

Andrews, who's officially listed as questionable due to knee and shoulder injuries, is expected to play Sunday against the Panthers, Adam Schefter of reports.

Analysis: Andrews sat out the Ravens' Week 9 win over the Saints due to the knee and shoulder injuries, marking his first missed game of his five-year career because of injury, but it appears he benefitted from the team's Week 10 bye and is expected to suit up again in Week 11 after logging a full practice Friday. The talented tight end leads the team in catches (42), receiving yards (488) and touchdown receptions (five), so his potential return would be a welcome sight for Lamar Jackson, who's expected to play despite an illness.

Nov 19, 2022 8:38 PM EST

Officially questionable for Week 11

Andrews (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Panthers, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Coach John Harbaugh relayed to Jamison Hensley of earlier Friday that Andrews "took quite a few reps" in the final practice of Week 11, for which the tight end went down as a full participant. Still, the Ravens will take a cautious approach with Andrews' status, with Harbaugh adding, "I think we'll wait until Sunday to say for sure." With a 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff, Andrews' availability (or lack thereof) will become known before the early slate of games, making it easier to pivot to Baltimore backup Isaiah Likely or another TE elsewhere.

Nov 18, 2022 11:53 AM EST

Week 11 status TBD

Coach John Harbaugh noted that Andrews (shoulder/knee) took a lot of reps during Friday's practice but a determination on the tight end's Week 11 status won't arrive until Sunday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Analysis: With that, we'd expect Andrews to be officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Fortunately for those hoping to use the tight end in fantasy lineups this week, the Ravens kick off at 1:00 ET on Sunday.

Nov 18, 2022 10:59 AM EST

Logs another limited practice

Andrews (shoulder/knee) was listed as a limited participant at practice Thursday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Analysis: As was the case Wednesday, the tight end wasn't spotted during the media-access portion of Thursday's practice, but Andrews ultimately logged a limited session. When asked if he'll play this weekend against the Panthers, Andrews replied "you never know," while also noting that he's "feeling good" at this stage of the week. Unless he manages a full practice Friday, Andrews figures to approach Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff with a Week 11 injury designation.

Nov 17, 2022 1:49 PM EST

Logs limited practice

Andrews (shoulder/knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Analysis: The tight end wasn't spotted during the initial stages of the session, but took the field following the media availability portion of the practice, marking his first such appearance since being injured in Week 8. With that, Andrews appears to be trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Panthers approaches.

Nov 16, 2022 12:47 PM EST

Not practicing yet

Andrews (shoulder/knee) isn't practicing Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Analysis: Coach John Harbaugh expressed optimism Monday that Andrews would be ready to play after the Week 10 bye. That's no sure thing, especially with the tight end missing another practice as the Ravens prepare for Sunday's home game against Carolina. Rookie tight end Isaiah Likely will have a key role again if Andrews misses another game.

Nov 16, 2022 11:22 AM EST

Trending toward Week 11 return

Coach John Harbaugh expressed optimism Monday with regard to Andrews' (knee/shoulder) chances of returning to action in Week 11.

Analysis: Andrews missed the Ravens' Week 9 win over the Saints, but was afforded some extra healing time with the team on bye last week. Per Harbaugh, the Ravens plan to "see how it progresses throughout the rest of the week" with their top TE, but the coach suggested that Andrews is among Baltimore's injured players who "have a real good chance" to be back in action Sunday against the Panthers. A return to practice, in any capacity, Wednesday on Andrews' part would support that notion.

Nov 14, 2022 2:57 PM EST

Ruled out for Monday's game

Andrews (knee/shoulder) has been downgraded to out for Monday night's game against the Saints.

Analysis: Andrews won't travel with the Ravens to New Orleans, which sets the stage for Isaiah Likely to serve as the team's top pass-catching tight end Monday night. Andrews will now target a potential return to action on Nov. 20 against the Panthers, following Baltimore's Week 10 bye.

Nov 6, 2022 11:37 AM EST

Doubtful for primetime

Andrews (shoulder/ankle) is listed as doubtful for Monday's contest against the Saints, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: While the Ravens went short of ruling out the stud tight end, Andrews failed to practice all week, which tends to indicate a player won't be active. If Andrews is ultimately ruled out, expect a plethora of opportunities for rookie tight end Isaiah Likely, especially in the event Demarcus Robinson (groin, questionable) is also unable to play.

Nov 5, 2022 12:51 PM EST

Still unable to practice

Andrews (shoulder/ankle) did not practice Saturday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Analysis: It's not boding well for the Pro Bowl tight end to suit up for Monday's contest, but the Ravens will likely clarify that distinction via Saturday's final injury report. Isaiah Likely would likely operate as one of the team's top targets with Rashod Bateman (foot) done for the season and Demarcus Robinson (groin) unable to practice each of the past two days.

Nov 5, 2022 8:38 AM EST

Remains sidelined Friday

Andrews (shoulder/ankle) didn't practice Friday, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Analysis: Andrews sat out a second consecutive practice, but he'll have one more chance to get back on the practice field Saturday before Monday's game against the Saints. Even with an extra day to get healthy, the star tight end is far from a lock to play, and fantasy managers with a roster spot to spare should consider bringing in Isaiah Likely as a contingency plan. After Andrews exited early in the team's Week 8 win over Tampa Bay, Likely caught six of seven targets for 77 yards and a touchdown.
