TE - HOU
Week 3 Outlook
Darren Fells caught two of four targets for 23 yards and a 10-yard touchdown catch in Sunday's 33-16 loss to the Ravens in Week 2.
Fells is sharing the tight end job with Jordan Akins but Akins is seeing more passes as Fells has seen just six targets over the first two games of the season. Fells is only worth owning in deep fantasy leagues for his red-zone abilities.
Darren Fells caught both of his targets for 19 yards in the Texans' Week 1 loss to the Chiefs by a 34-20 score.
Fells split time at tight end with Jordan Akins and was not a big part of the passing game for the Texans. The veteran caught seven touchdown passes last season and is good in the red zone and is worth owning in deeper fantasy formats.
The Texans have signed Darren Fells to a two-year, $7 million contract.
Fells will earn $4 million in 2020 and the deal will keep him in Houston for the next couple of years. The 34-year old tight end emerged as Deshaun Watson’s top red zone target and set career-highs in receptions (34), yards (341) and touchdowns (7) across 16 games in 2019. Fells is a borderline tight end two and is mainly option in deep-league formats.
Darren Fells caught three of seven targets for 22 yards and a touchdown on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Chiefs in a Divisional Round matchup by a 51-31 score.
Fells tied a season in targets on Sunday as the veteran tight end has worked his way to the top of the depth chart for the Texans. Fells will battle Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas in 2020 to see who can get top billing in the offense.
Darren Fells was a late addition to the team's injury report due to a hip injury.
The late addition would seem to indicate that Fells suffered the injury during practice late in the week. As such, his status for the team's game Sunday against the Texans is up in the air. Fellow tight end, Jordan Akins, is also questionable due to an injury. Fells played nearly 100% of snaps in Akins' absence last week, resulting in four receptions on five targets for 37 yards, so if only one of the two suit up this weekend they would make an interesting value play for playoff fantasy purposes.
