There are some fantasy players who are production-based. They'll look at the fantasy points a player has scored and nothing more. If you do that with Fells, you'll see he's tallied 7.1 or more PPR points in five of his last seven games, including four games with 12.9 or more points. When you look a bit closer, you'll see that he's totaled three or less targets in 6-of-9 games this year. There's not a tight end in the league who can sustain production with that little of volume. The Ravens haven't allowed much tight end production this year (8th fewest points per game) but a lot of that has been due to a lack of volume, as they've faced just 49 tight end targets all season. When targeted, they allow a healthy 7.98 yards per target, which is above the league average. The issue is the lack of touchdowns (two of them), which is where Fells makes his mark in fantasy. Knowing it's a tough matchup where he succeeds most, combined with the fact that Jordan Akins eats into his snap-share, and you have yourself just a middling TE2.

Darren Fells catches another TD pass in Week 9 win

Darren Fells caught his only target for one yard and scored a touchdown as the Texans beat the Jaguars in London on Sunday by a 26-3 score.

Fantasy Impact

Fells has now caught three TD passes over the last two games and has six total on the season. Unfortunately, the veteran tight end only saw one target on the day as he was not a big part of the passing game. Fells is not worth owning in standard fantasy leagues unless he gets more involved.
