NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Baltimore Ravens
Tommy Gilligan / USA TODAY Sports

There was hope that Mark Andrews could take enough of a step forward in 2020 to make up for the touchdown regression we all should have expected. Instead, he's averaged fewer targets, receptions and yards than he did in 2019. In fact, there was a point where he didn't even look like a must-start tight end. 

Through the first half of the season Andrews was averaging just 37 receiving yards per game and was only in useful in Fantasy when he scored. But in the two games before he was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list he saw 16 targets and turned them into 12 catches for 157 yards and a score. Two games is not much of a sample size, but for a tight end that was as good as Andrews was last season, it's enough. 

I would start Andrews over all other tight ends this week except for Travis Kelce, Darren Waller, and T.J. Hockenson. 

Jonnu Smith is also expected to return in Week 14. He's not a must-start option at all, but his return does hurt Anthony Firkser's sleeper appeal. There are more than a dozen tight ends I would start before either Titans option, but they do have a dream matchup against the Jaguars.

It's not a great matchup, but Washington won't be able to run against the 49ers, so the volume should be there at least.

Kmet set career highs with five catches and seven targets in Week 13. We don't expect those to remain his career bests for long.

Waller and Kelce both on the same slate? That hasn't happened for a while. I lean Kelce, especially since I think Waller's Week 13 performance could drive up his roster rate.
