Summary

Last season, two tight ends fell victim to injuries leading to a path to injured reserve, Jordan Thomas and Kahale Warring. Those who picked up the slack included Darren Fells and Jordan Akins. Fells finished 13th among fantasy tight ends thanks to his seven touchdowns, however, his fantasy success was mostly due to touchdowns because he only caught 34 passes all season. He had two receptions or less in 11 of the 15 games he played in. Jordan Akins had more receptions (36) and yards (418), including a 7.1 yards after the catch per reception rate which was 4th among tight ends last season, trailing only Noah Fant, Jonnu Smith, and George Kittle. Akins is entering his third year in the league, but he's 28 years old. He had a late start to his pro career, but he's ready and capable of making an impact in 2020. There are several candidates to be the Texans top tight end and Akins may be the front-runner in that conversation. (May 28)
