The bad news keeps on coming for the Baltimore Ravens as it was announced that starting tight end Mark Andrews tested positive for COVID-19. He will not be able to suit up and play in Week 12, which crushes his fantasy value until he can return.

In a pivotal game against an undefeated divisional rival in the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ravens' starters continue to go down. Andrews will be at least the 11th Ravens' player to be placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

There have been a number of players that were able to return from the Reserve/COVID-19 list and play in the team's next game, which means Andrews could easily be back on the field in Week 13. He has been a top-5 fantasy tight end this season, hauling in 38 receptions for 454 yards and scoring 6 touchdowns.

With backup tight end Nick Boyle on the IR with a leg injury, the Ravens find themselves turning to recent signee Luke Willson to lead the position this week. He has little fantasy value, but this news could help Marquise Brown see some more targets than usual.

It is yet to be seen if this game will actually be played on Tuesday night, but the Ravens will be nothing other than shorthanded if it is. Make sure to get Andrews out of your starting lineup and find a replacement before it is too late.
