Akins caught both of his targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 1.

Houston's tight ends combined for three catches on nine targets as quarterback Deshaun Watson never resembled the dynamo we saw in his six-game run as a starter in 2017. Starter Ryan Griffin did not have a catch in five targets while Jordan Thomas caught one of two for 27 yards. The pecking order will likely remain the same heading into Week 2 against the Titans, but given that Griffin and Watson were so out of sync Week 1, Akins is on our watchlist.
