There were some who believed that with Randall Cobb and Kenny Stills out, we might see more of Akins in the offensive gameplan. Nope. He was targeted just twice against the Lions, and though they were both in the end zone, he couldn't haul either of them in (one was a drop). When you've seen more than four targets just twice all year, you need to make the most of your opportunities. Will he get more with Fuller out of the lineup? The targets have to go somewhere. Unfortunately, it's not a great week to consider him against a Colts team that's allowed just 1.21 PPR points per target to tight ends. It's not just lack of touchdowns either, as they've allowed just 5.31 yards per target, which is the second-lowest mark in the league. The competition they've played hasn't been all that great, but still, tight ends have averaged 35.7 percent fewer PPR points against the Colts than they do on the season, which makes it the fifth-toughest schedule adjusted matchup for tight ends. Like I said, the targets have to go somewhere, which is why Akins should definitely be added for those who constantly stream tight ends, but this matchup keeps him well into the TE2 range. All we want to see is targets this week.

Jordan Akins fails to catch a pass in win on Thursday

Jordan Akins did not catch a pass on two targets and rushed one time for four yards on Thursday as the Texans beat the Lions by a 41-25 score in Week 12 action.

Fantasy Impact

Akins was coming off one of his best weeks in Week 11 when he caught five passes for 83 yards. But the 28-year-old tight end was forgotten about on Thursday as he failed to catch a pass in a game for the first time this year. Akins is not a must-own in standard fantasy leagues.
