Texans' Jordan Akins: Lags in targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Four catches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Reaches 50 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Second in targets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Leads Texans tight ends again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Targeted twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins was targeted twice in Thursday's 41-25 win over the Lions.

Akins and the rest of tight ends did not play a significant role Thursday. He had two of the position group's three targets, including one red-zone chance. Houston was down two wide receivers, which gave the tight ends a chance to make an impact, but that never materialized. The snap count was relatively even among the group with Akins (26 snaps) third behind Pharaoh Brown (30) and Darren Fells (28). Week 13 brings a matchup with Indianapolis, which has allowed the fourth fewest yards and just one touchdown to opposing tight ends.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Back atop TE list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins caught five of six targets for 83 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Patriots.

Akins re-emerged as the team's top tight end option, amassing more targets than Darren Fells (three) and Pharaoh Brown (two) combined. The 11 targets for the position group was the most since Week 2 and could be a sign of things to come should Randall Cobb (toe) and Kenny Stills (quadriceps) miss significant time. With a short week to prepare for Thursday's meeting in Detroit, Akins could be in line for a significant workload.

Texans' Jordan Akins: One target in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's 10-7 loss to the Browns.

Akins' target was in the red zone -- the tight end's third target inside the 20 this season -- but overall, Houston's tight ends weren't used much in the game. They were thrown to just four times among Deshaun Watson's 30 pass attempts. Akins and Darren Fells each had one target while Pharaoh Brown was targeted twice and had a touchdown.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins caught two of four targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 27-25 win over the Jaguars.

Akins returned to the lineup after missing three consecutive games with a concussion and ankle injury. The third-year tight end opened the season as the lead tight end but on Sunday, he finished third in snap count (22) behind Darren Fells (33) and Pharaoh Brown (25). The diminished playing time is likely the result of the Texans exercising caution. Prior to his recent injury, Akins was the leading tight end target, as he was Sunday.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Returns to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins (concussion/ankle) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

Akins practiced fully for the first time since Week 4. His ability to take every rep in practice coming out of the bye week paves the way for Akins to get back on the field Sunday in Jacksonville. He'll likely be looking at a split of the tight-end snaps with Darren Fells.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Targeting Week 9 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Romeo Crennel said Monday that he expects Akins (concussion/ankle) to be available against Jacksonville in Week 9, Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site reports.

Akins has missed three straight games while dealing with a concussion as well as an ankle injury, but it appears as though he's set to return to action after the Texans' bye. The 28-year-old served as Houston's clear top tight end during the first three games of the season, so if he's indeed able to fully clear the concussion protocol for Week 9, he'll stand to resume handling No.1 reps.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Can't suit up against Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Green Bay.

Akins suffered a concussion upon absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit from Harrison Smith during Houston's Oct. 4 loss to the Vikings, and though he has since cleared concussion protocol, he remains beleaguered by an ankle issue. While the 28-year-old is sidelined for a third consecutive game, Darren Fells stands atop the Texans' tight end depth chart for Week 7. Fells has recorded 142 receiving yards and two TDs over his past two outings in Akins' stead.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Iffy for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins (ankle/concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

That said, Akins didn't practice at all this week and isn't expected to suit up this weekend, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. If Akins does indeed remain sidelined in Week 7, fellow tight end Darren Fells will continue to see added passing targets against Green Bay.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Remains sidelined Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins (ankle/concussion) didn't practice Thursday, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

Per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the tight end's concussion symptoms have subsided, but his high ankle sprain remains an issue. Akins will need to return to practice Friday in order to avoid missing a third straight game. In the event that he remains sidelined Sunday against the Packers, Darren Fells will continue to see added targets.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Ankle is the issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins' concussion symptoms have subsided, and his high-ankle sprain is the reason for him missing Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Akins has missed two games due to lingering concussion symptoms and an ankle sprain, both suffered against the Vikings in Week 4. Darren Fells has seen an uptick in snaps while Akins has been sidelined. Prior to the injury, Akins was the lead tight end in terms of snaps and targets.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins (ankle/concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.

Akins has missed two straight games, but he practiced in a limited fashion all of last week. He isn't off to a good start to playing Sunday against the Packers, but Akins would still have a decent chance to suit up if he resumes practicing Thursday and/or Friday. If not, Darren Fells would continue to fill in as the Texans' top pass-catching tight end.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins (ankle/concussion) will not play Sunday against the Titans, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Akins, who was a limited participant in practice all week, was listed as questionable on Friday's final injury report, but it seems as if the team is simply playing it safe with its starting tight end. Darren Fells, who last week posted a season-high 57 receiving yards and registered his second touchdown this season, will once again operate as the primary pass catcher in Akins' absence.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Tagged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins (ankle/concussion) was limited in practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Titans.

Akins practiced in a limited fashion all week, and coach Romeo Crennel said Friday that Akins will be a game-time decision Sunday. Crennel also confirmed that Akins is still in the league's concussion protocol while also working through an ankle injury, so he'll need clearance on both fronts in order to play Sunday. Darren Fells will be the main beneficiary if Akins can't go.

Texans' Jordan Akins: Should be game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins (concussion) is expected to be a game-time decision Sunday at Tennessee, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

Coach Romeo Crennel said the 28-year-old "made a little progress," but he clearly remains in the concussion protocol. Akins has practiced as a limited participant in four straight sessions and appears likely to tally another one Friday, but the release of the Texans' official injury report later in the day will provide the final answer on his practice participation.

October 15, 2020 08:44 PM
Texans' Jordan Akins: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Akins (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice.

Akins has now logged four straight limited practices, dating back to last week, while working to progress through the league's five-step concussion protocol. If he's unable to gain full clearance ahead of Sunday's contest in Tennessee, Darren Fells will draw another start at tight end.
