Mark Andrews Injury Update Unlikely to Hurt Fantasy Outlook for AFC Divisional Round Game Against Titans

Outside of Lamar Jackson, you can make a pretty convincing case that Mark Andrews is the second-most important member of the Baltimore Ravens' passing attack.

Andrews led the team in receptions, receiving yards, targets and receiving touchdowns, and his 16 receptions of at least 20 yards were double what the next-closest Raven had in the regular season.

He's dealt with minor bumps and bruises all season though, and unfortunately this week appears no different. Andrews only got in a limited practice due to a lingering ankle injury, and while that's not ideal, it doesn't look like he's in danger of missing the team's Divisional Round Game against the Tennessee Titans.

Mark Andrews Fantasy Outlook

Despite the injury, it's likely safe to play Andrews as you normally would, as it appears he's on track to suit up for this one.

Andrews also draws what looks to be a relatively soft matchup against a Titans' defense that ranks No. 21 against the pass in Football Outsiders' DVOA metric, and that surrendered the sixth-most PPR points to opposing tight ends in the regular season.

Assuming there's no setback, don't shy away from playing Andrews this Saturday. The star pass-catcher checks in at TE3 in our Divisional Round fantasy rankings.
