Player Outlook

Akins always seems like he's just on the verge of being Fantasy relevant, but he's never put together more than a few decent weeks in a row. He'll be in the streaming conversation in 2021, but there's little reason to look the 29-year-old's way in all but the deepest drafts.

Player News
  • Akins caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 41-38 loss to the Titans. Akins, who was Houston's third-most targeted receiver in 2020, was sixth among the seven receivers targeted Sunday. He finished the season with 49 targets, 37 passes, 403 yards and one touchdown. Akins emerged as the Texans' primary tight end in 2020 and has one year left on his contract. The makeup of next season's team depends on the whims of what will be a new general manager and head coach, but Akins should return in a fairly significant role in 2021.

  • Akins caught four of four targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 37-31 loss to the Bengals. Akins led Houston's tight ends in targets, receptions and yards, but he has not recorded a touchdown since Week 1 despite leading the position group with seven red-zone targets. With one game remaining, Akins needs one catch and 24 yards in Week 17 to record new career highs.

  • Akins caught five of six targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Indianapolis. Akins has become the top tight end threat on the roster and has six targets in three of the last five games. He's up to 43 targets over 11 games, which puts him within shouting distance of his career-high 55 targets established over 16 games in 2019. However, Akins has found the end zone just once, and Houston's tight ends account for just three of quarterback Deshaun Watson's 27 touchdown throws. Week 16 has the Texans hosting the Bengals, whose defense is tied for 30th in fantasy points allowed to tight ends.

  • Akins caught three of six targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Bears. Akins once again led Houston's tight ends in targets while finishing second among all Texans receivers in the loss. The team was without its top three wide receivers from the start the season -- Will Fuller (suspension), Brandin Cooks (foot) and Randall Cobb (toe) -- which jumbled up the targeting options for quarterback Deshaun Watson. Cooks could return for Week 15 against the Colts, which would bring some normalcy, but Fuller is done for the year and Cobb is considering shutting down. That could open the door for Akins, who leads the team's tight ends in targets, to maintain a significant role in the game plan going forward.

  • Akins caught two of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 26-20 loss to the Colts. Akins led Houston tight ends in targets and snaps (45), something that has been a common outcome when he's been healthy. However, the position group did not experience an uptick in targets even as the Texans played without Will Fuller (suspension), Randall Cobb (toe) and Kenny Stills (released); instead, the offense double-downed on the remaining wide receivers as Keke Coutee (nine targets), Brandin Cooks (eight) and Chad Hansen (seven) took up the slack. Akins could see more opportunities in Week 14, as Houston will be on the road in Chicago against a defense that has allowed nine touchdowns to tight ends.
