 Not many realize the Texans tight ends saw a very respectable 19.1 percent target share in 2019, and that was with DeAndre Hopkins on the roster. Knowing the defense is likely taking another step back, we could see increased pass attempts, and a higher target total available. The issue is that Fells and Akins shared the role, though not many realize it was Akins who led them with 55 targets, 36 receptions, and 418 yards. The only thing Fells beat him in was touchdowns, as his seven trumped Akins' two. Based on what we saw out of Akins last year, we should expect the third-year player to take a step forward in 2020, and with a little touchdown luck, he might be an underrated fantasy option. You don't need to draft him in standard 1TE leagues, but you can consider him a streamer in good matchups if my projections hold true.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Fells was a TD machine in 2019 catching seven on only 48 targets. If that doesn't scream negative regression, I don't know what will. He remains A TD dependent TE who you'd rather not have to rely on week in and week out. 
Jason Petropoulos

 Akins and Fells combined stats last season: 70 catches, 760 yards, 9 TDs
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Darren Fells was somehow the TE15 last season. Yeah, I don't get it either. The 34-year-old managed an impressive 7 TDs and has is a strong bye week replacement option. There's no reason to draft him though.Last season the Texans tight ends somehow combined for over 100 targets, 750 yards and 9 TDs. Jordan Akins was the major yardage guy but it was Darren Fells who finished higher in fantasy (TE25 over TE15) thanks to his 7 touchdowns. Fells isn't going away after signing a two year contract and Kahale Warring is also a threat, but Akins seems most likely to break out of this eclectic bunch now that Deandre Hopkins's targets are up for grabs. While he's a 28-year-old in only his third season, he's a sensational athlete who could surprise people this season.

Fells finished as the TE15 in half ppr in 2019, the old man had his swan song, time to let the kids strut.The snap counts in 2019 were almost divided equally between Akins and Fells only adding to the possible confusion here. Of note, Akins played the slot 17.4% of the time while Fells was tasked to so only 9.6% of the time. @NickDynastyff
