Mark Andrews 2020 Dynasty Outlook
Mark Andrews was a monster WR coming out of Arizona. He decided to commit to the University of Oklahoma where they transitioned him to TE during his redshirt freshman year.
In his 3 seasons, Andrews put up 1,765 yards on 112 receptions with 22 TDs. With those stats, he racked up numberous awards including John Mackey Award (most outstanding college TE), Unanimous All-American, Ozzie Newsome Award (college football’s best TE), 2-time First-Team All-Big 12, and Second-Team All-Big 12.
With the 86th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Baltimore Ravens select Mark Andrews, TE, Oklahoma.
In his rookie season, he scored 107.2 fantasy points having a TE17 finish. Last year, he finished as the TE5 while only playing 41.36% of offensive snaps, which was 67th among TEs. He had 10 games of 7 or more targets in 15 total games played; he also scored double digits in 9 games as well with 4 of those games being over 20 points. He ended the year tied with the second most receiving TDs in the league (10) showing his redzone dominance.
With Hayden Hurst to Atlanta, 2020 will shape up to be another dominant season for Mark Andrews. The 24 year old will be a top 3 TE if he stays healthy. With such a small percentage of offensive snaps, he’s going to have positive regression in this area. While the Ravens only trailed for 8:24 minutes all season last year, they are bound to be trailing more this year which will lead to more pass attempts and targets for Andrews. His 2020 outlook is strong, but how much better can it get?
Mark Andrews Dynasty Outlook – Beyond 2020
Mark Andrews turned 24 last week, and Lamar is 23; this duo will be the most dominant QB-TE duo in this decade. He has TE1 potential for the next 5 to 8 years. The only thing I could see hurting his legacy is injuries, so as long as he stays away from those, he’ll be a great investment. Now is the cheapest he’s be for years.
After his rookie contract is up in 2022, so it’ll be important for his fantasy value to remain in Baltimore. Fantasy managers will need to keep their eye on this if anything in his game changes in the next 2 years.
According to the RotoHeat team, Mark Andrews’s ADP is #53 overall and #3 among TEs in PPR formats. His value in picks in both 1QB and SuperFlex is the 1.04 or 1.05.
In 1QB leagues, players comparable in value to Mark are Melvin Gordon, Adam Thielen, Deebo Samuel, Todd Gurley, Terry McLaurin, Tyler Boyd and Kyler Murray. Gordon is a no go for me, and if I had a need at RB, I’d take Gurley. I’d take McLaurin straight up for Andrews, but I would need a little more added to Samuel and Boyd because I don’t see the same upside in them. A 2nd or 3rd rounder would suffice. If I have a QB need, I’d gladly take Murray with the added weapon in DeAndre Hopkins and the fantasy points he gets with his feet.
Players with similar value to Andrews in SuperFlex leagues are also Deebo and Terry. Others include Calvin Ridley, Stefon Diggs, Justin Herbert, Sam Darnold and Jared Goff. QBs are so important in these formats, so I’d target Goff, Darnold and Herbert in that order. Herbert losing out to Tyrod does worry me a little looking towards the future, but his potential is undeniable. Diggs and Ridley are guys I love here, and would take both for Andrews without hesitation.
