John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
Christian Kirk has seen five or more targets in all but two games this season. While the defensive attention is going to be focused on trying to slow Deandre Hopkins down and bottle Kyler Murray up, this game has sneaky upside for the slot receiver role, which he will be occupying with Larry Fitzgerald out this week. Think of Kirk as a high-end WR3 play with upside. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 Andrews has racked up a 12/157/1 receiving line across his last two games, and is on a roll. Pittsburgh is an unfavorable matchup for TEs, but Andrews is the Ravens' most dependable pass-catcher and can't be faded as any less than a top-10 option.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It seems we've come back down to earth with Kirk, as he's finished with just eight catches for 77 yards in the last two weeks combined. There was a three-game stretch in there that made it mighty difficult to bench him, but he's no longer someone you must start, especially when you consider Murray's shoulder injury that could negatively impact his passing. The matchup against the Patriots is not a bad one, as evidenced by the league-leading 9.65 yards per target to wide receivers they've allowed. Kirk also leads the Cardinals starting wide receivers in average depth of target, so it helps to know the Patriots have allowed 14.52 yards per reception, which is second to only the Falcons. While Hopkins is sure to see Stephon Gilmore, that leaves Kirk with Jason McCourty. Of the 88 cornerbacks who've played at least 175 snaps in coverage, McCourty has allowed the second-most PPR points per target (2.48) in his coverage. The risk with Kirk comes back to Kyler Murray and his shoulder injury, as he needs to be able to get the ball downfield. Despite the Patriots being as bad as they are from an efficiency standpoint, they've allowed just 16 wide receivers to finish as top-48 options (12 of whom were top-36). That's not great when we view Hopkins as the No. 1 receiver for them. Kirk is in the WR4 conversation in a plus-matchup but there is concern, meaning he's not a must-start.After a lull in production from Week 6 though Week 9, Andrews has bounced back in a big way over the last two weeks. He racked up 7/61/0 against the Patriots, who had been shutting down tight end production all season, and then he built on that while taking advantage of a plus-matchup against the Titans, churning out five receptions for 96 yards and a touchdown. Teams have continually tried to target their tight ends against the Steelers, though it hasn't worked. Despite seeing the 10th-most targets (74), they've allowed the fifth-fewest receptions (36), third-fewest yards (364), and the fewest touchdowns (1) to tight ends. That all amounts to just 4.92 yards and 1.06 PPR points per target to the position, which are both the best in football. We already know Andrews isn't a high-catch percentage tight end, so when you add that in with the fact that the Steelers have allowed a ridiculously-low 48.6 percent completion-rate (no other team under 58.2 percent), you have an issue. You also know why Andrews finished with just three catches for 32 yards on six targets the last time these two teams met. You have to keep plugging him in as a TE1 in season-long leagues, but this isn't a week to attack him in DFS.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Patriots are 15th against fantasy wide receivers. Kirk has only 8 receptions for 77 yards in his last two games after having three big games before that. He is a boom / bust WR3 on the road.Andrews had only 4.7 fantasy points against the Steelers top ranked fantasy tight end defense the last time these teams met. Andrews is still a TE1 at a position that is weak on fantasy talent.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Kirk wasn't able to deliver a huge performance against the Seahawks last week, which was most likely due to Kyler Murray's shoulder injury. Assuming that Murray's good to go for this matchup, Kirk should get back to being targeted deep downfield. It's a favorable matchup for opposing WRs and Kirk could easily go off in this one. Start him as a high-end WR3 this week.Andrews has finally re-emerged as a top-tier fantasy asset in this offense. It's hard to see how Andrews delivers a huge blow-up performance against this Steelers defense here, but based on the TE landscape, he belongs in your lineup as a top-3 option.
