Yes, Andrews ranks third among tight ends on his team in snaps. No, it doesn't seem to matter. He's averaging a ridiculous 4.68 yards per target, which leads all tight ends who've seen more than five targets. That's what I call a sticky stat, as the leaders in that stat are typically the best in the game. Last year it was George Kittle, Travis Kelce, O.J. Howard (buy-low), Andrews, and Zach Ertz as the leaders in that category. In a game they'll be throwing more than normal (is 31.5 pass attempts the new normal for them?), Andrews' value should remain strong. The Chiefs newly-installed defense has allowed 17-of-21 passing for 145 yards to tight ends over the first two weeks, which includes James O'Shaughnessy, Geoff Swaim, Darren Waller, and Derek Carrier. Those 17 receptions allowed to tight ends are the most of any team in the league after two weeks. That 81 percent catch-rate combined with Andrews' 94.1 percent catch-rate equal big things in a game that has the highest total of the week. He's locked in as a high-end TE1 this week and one who can even be considered for cash games.
