Mark Andrews and Eric Ebron have been inconsistent, mediocre Fantasy options this season. It's the nature of the position that also makes them virtual must-start Fantasy options despite that mediocrity. But with current coronavirus outbreak going on in Baltimore delaying the Ravens-Steelers game until Tuesday night (if it is played at all) and now claiming Andrews as another Ravens' positive, Fantasy managers need to replace Andrews and might be forced to do the same for Ebron should the game be further postponed.

It would have been understandable if you didn't trust Andrews even if he did play after Lamar Jackson tested positive. For the most part, I was sticking with Ebron and Andrews going into Sunday, but I also wanted to have a backup plan on my roster.

The top two options available in at least a quarter of leagues play each other Sunday night. Jimmy Graham is among the league leaders in red-zone targets and Robert Tonyan plays with Aaron Rodgers and could see more targets with Marquez Valdes-Scantling out. If they're both rostered, then you're probably looking at Austin Hooper against the worst defense in football or Jordan Reed against one of the best. Even with his recent struggles, I'd prefer Hooper. 

Hopefully the Ravens and Steelers are able to play on Tuesday, but prepare for the worst.

Numbers to Know
  • 5.18 -- Yards per target for Evan Engram this year. That ranks 40th out of 42 NFL players with at least 60 targets.
  • 9 -- Targets inside the 10 for Jimmy Graham this season. That's the most among tight ends.
  • 16.2% -- Touchdown rate for Robert Tonyan this season. In a word, that's unsustainable.
  • 12.1 -- Average depth of target for Mike Gesicki, the highest for a tight end.
  • 87% -- Snap share for Hayden Hurst in Week 11 when he caught zero passes, his highest of the season.

While Tonyan's touchdown rate is unsustainable, he does play with Aaron Rodgers, so he's probably going to score a lot of touchdowns. His team is implied for almost four of them in Week 12.

It feels like it's pretty rare for us to get Kelce on the main slate. He's lapping the field at tight end this season, and I wouldn't expect that will change against Tampa Bay. In cash games, I'd rather play Kelce than chase a touchdown with someone else.
