Mark Andrews Fantasy Outlook Remains Positive Due to Ravens Efficiency in Passing Game

One of the most surprising offenses through two weeks of the 2019 NFL season has surely been that of the Baltimore Ravens. Leading the league in points per game, the Ravens' passing attack has been led by tight end Mark Andrews and WR Marquise Brown.

Andrews has been so good that he's the No. 1 tight end in fantasy football through two weeks, and he's also been the most efficient at the position.

Andrews leads tight ends in yards (220), is tied for the lead in touchdowns (two) and is tied for second in receptions (16 on 17 targets). His back-to-back 100- yard games puts the tight end in a unique spot as the position is typically volatile in fantasy. Showing this kind of consistency and efficiency with the workload he's received makes Andrews an every-week TE1 moving forward.

He also has a great opportunity for another big fantasy output as the Ravens take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 3. KC has allowed the sixth-most points to the tight end position, enough to put Andrews fifth among tight ends in our PPR rankings, and fourth for standard leagues.

With a large enough target share and a solid matchup, Andrews could end up outperforming these rankings in Week 3.
