There are no bye weeks to deal with in Week 12, but that doesn’t mean some of you aren’t looking for replacement tight ends this week. Mark AndrewsLast week’s season-ending ankle injury left at least one coach in every league scrambling to fill a gigantic hole in their lineup.

Of course, you can’t really replace a player like Andrews, especially this late in the season. Previously, you may have had the appearance of Dalton Kincaid and Trey McBride to pivot, but coming out of Week 11, the options aren’t as attractive these days.

If you lost Andrews, the first thing you should do is check if Kyle Pitts was eliminated from its league: it is down to 82% of its squad after the bye week. Pitts has been a disappointment once again, but there still aren’t many tight ends with comparable upside if the Falcons can get his passing game going. Usage has been disappointing lately (five targets in four straight games entering the break), but there’s still at least a theoretical upside here, something few other options at this position have.

David Njoku He’s also down to 81% of the roster and would actually be a priority over Pitts in every league if he were available. You could also search logan thomas (73%) after an eight-goal game for the Commandersand Pat Freiermuth (53%) also has some theoretical upside, although he played only 53% of the snaps and had a target on his return from IR, so no guarantees there either.

If you can afford to be patient, you can also add Darren Waller (56%). He’s still on IR for one more game and, as a result, can’t return until Week 14 at the earliest. However, if he is cleared for the Fantasy playoffs, Waller appears to be a starting-caliber option even in a pinch situation. Giants Offense: He was on pace for 85 receptions and 923 yards before the injury.

Otherwise, you’re just rolling the dice. Jonnu Smith (37%) has had his moments and is actually having a better season than Pitts, but he has been even more inconsistent. michael mayer (23%) continues to show flashes, but still hasn’t accomplished it all as a rookie. Donald Parham (18%) is worth considering as a streamer if Geraldine Everett He has to miss Week 12 due to his chest injury, as he had four receptions for 57 yards on Sunday and has been a weapon in the red zone for the Chargers.

There’s no obvious replacement for Andrews, but you might be able to rebuild him over the next few weeks with some of these options. None of them are ideal, but that’s the unfortunate situation you find yourself in.
