Jordan Akins Fantasy Football Outlook (2021)

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Aug 12th 2021, 7:04am EDT

The exit of Darren Fells should've made Akins a potential breakout tight end, and while I suppose he still is, it's a lot tougher when you have a quarterback who's never thrown for more than 20 touchdowns in a season. You need the targets for Akins to be considered an option, because on top of Tyrod Taylor's struggles, Akins himself has scored just three touchdowns on 129 career targets, which is well below the league average for tight ends. There were four games last year where Akins saw six-plus targets in Tim Kelly's offense, but that didn't amount to much, as he never topped 10.9 half-PPR points in a game, and that was with Deshaun Watson under center.
