In 2021, Mark Andrews rewarded fantasy football players with a dominant season. In fact, Andrews’ 301.1 fantasy points (PPR) ranked fourth all-time by a tight end. Just two running backs (Jonathan Taylor, Austin Ekeler) and five wide receivers (Cooper Kupp, Davante Adams, Deebo Samuel, Justin Jefferson, Ja’Marr Chase) scored more points than the Ravens' tight end.
As a result of his dominant season a year ago, Andrews is coming off fantasy draft boards as the No. 2 tight end behind Travis Kelce and as the 21st player overall in 2022. In other words, Baltimore’s playmaker is a sure-fire second-round pick in fantasy leagues. According to the latest Average Draft Position data, Andrews and Kelce are in a tier all by themselves as the next group of tight ends to get drafted (Kyle Pitts, George Kittle, Darren Waller) are mid-third to late-fourth round selections.
ADP is a helpful tool when building your fantasy football draft strategy. Unlike a fantasy cheat sheet, ADP acts as a reference point for where players are being drafted in other fantasy leagues. When used in conjunction with rankings, ADP acts as a great guide when you’re on the clock in your fantasy draft.
