Draft note
by John Paulsen
Akins enters his third season as a 28-year-old former baseball player. He caught 36-of-55 targets for 418 yards and two scores, but there are reasons to believe that he may make a leap in his third year. He led all Houston tight ends in routes run (390) and ran the 10th most routes among all tight ends last year. Given his snap rate (61%), it’s an indicator that the team views him mainly as a receiver. He was fourth among tight ends in yards after the catch per reception and third among tight ends in average YAC above expectations, per NFL’s Next Gen Stats. With the loss of DeAndre Hopkins, Akins should play a larger role in the passing game, especially with Darren Fells another year older. Akins could see competition from second-year player Kahale Warring, but after a lost-rookie season it’s doubtful that he’ll be able to eat into Akins’ snaps.

HOU TE Jordan Akins - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Tennessee Titans
In the loss to Cincinnati last week, Jordan Akins finished with four receptions for 39 yards. He has posted more than 50 yards just twice this season and hasn’t scored since the opener. Akins missed the October battle against Tennessee in October and doesn’t make for a good fantasy start in the rematch.
