Wildcard Round vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Mark Andrews was fourth on the team with 50 targets this season, but he ended up with only 34 receptions for 552 yards and three touchdowns. Much of that production surprisingly came against the Chargers two weeks ago, when he caught two passes for 83 yards, including a 68-yard touchdown.
While the playoffs and the tight end position in general limit the field of options, Andrews is still pretty risky to count on. This group of teams in the wildcard round feature some of the best players at the position, including Eric Ebron, Zach Ertz and Trey Burton, so owners are much better off going with one of that trio. However, depending on how you feel about Blake Jarwin after his explosion last week, Andrews is probably just as viable as the next tier of options. He’s an interesting choice for owners who miss out on the cream of the crop.
