No tight end has accounted for a higher percentage of their team's targets in 2019 than Mark Andrews, whose 17 looks are good for a 28 percent market share in the Baltimore Ravens' offense.

A breakout candidate heading into 2019, Andrews has exceeded the hype and quickly established himself as a potential every-week starter in fantasy football.

Andrews is near the top of the leaderboard in just about every category for tight ends so far in 2019.

He ranks first with 34.0 fantasy points (standard scoring, also first with 50.0 in PPR), he has that position-high target share (though his 17 targets rank fourth), is second in receptions (16), first in yards (220) and tied first in touchdowns (two).

He didn't just have one game inflate his stats either, with eight receptions, at least 100 yards and one touchdown in each of his two outings.

Mark Andrews Fantasy Outlook Week 3

Admittedly, Andrews has benefited from some primo matchups in his first two games, taking on the Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals. Things don't get much worse for him in Week 3 though, going up against the Kansas City Chiefs.

After allowing the NFL's second-most passing yards to opposing teams and the most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends in 2018, KC has shown some improvements through two weeks in 2019. They've still allowed top-12 passing yardage (525) though, and gave up six receptions for 63 yards to Oakland Raiders tight end Darren Waller in Week 2. This game has a massive 55.5-point over/under on FanDuel Sportsbook, giving it some serious shootout potential as well.

In such a great spot, Andrews sits fifth among tight ends in our Week 3 fantasy football rankings for PPR leagues, and fourth for standard leagues.
