 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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After what seemed like an eternity, the Broncos running backs had some success in Week 11, combining for 166 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries against the Dolphins, as they led throughout the game. Neither of them were targeted in the passing game, which could be a real problem this week. The Saints are one of just five teams who've allowed fewer than 3.50 yards per carry on the season. It's not just that, either, as they've allowed a rushing touchdown once every 63.7 carries, which is the least often. On the ground, they've allowed just 8.4 fantasy points per game to running backs, which is the lowest in the league, and it doesn't bode well for someone like Lindsay, who isn't involved in the passing game. It's not great through the air, either, as running backs have averaged just 4.50 yards per target against the Saints, which ranks as the fourth-lowest mark in the NFL. So, the yardage is bad on the ground and through the air. What about the touchdowns? Nope, they've allowed a league-low five touchdowns to running backs this year. Of the fantasy production the Saints allow to skill-position players, running backs account for just 25.4 percent of it, which is the lowest mark in the league. That's led to them scoring just 17.4 PPR points per game against the Saints, which is the lowest number in the league. When you see the Saints have faced just 24.0 running back touches per game, and been so efficient against them (94.8 total yards per game), it's tough to say Gordon is anything more than a middling RB3 this week and not someone you should feel it necessary to play. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Gordon came out of nowhere last week to put together a dominant fantasy performance. After finishing as the RB33, the RB52, and the RB39 the previous three games, Gordon was the RB5 against Miami last week. Gordon's fantasy outlook seems to be dependent upon game-script, which isn't exactly a comfortable spot for fantasy managers to be in. Against New Orleans, it's highly unlikely that Denver plays with a lead for much of this game, which means that Gordon's unlikely to see anywhere close to the 15 carries he had last week. He's back to being a risky high-end RB3 play.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.
