After a solid Week 1 performance where he found the end zone, Akins racked up seven targets in Week 2, which was the second-highest mark of his career. He caught all of them for 55 yards, further making us consider him a legitimate streaming option. Unfortunately, he's going to share the red zone work with the vulture, Fells. But there have been 15 targets to the two of them through two weeks, amounting to a respectable 22.1 percent target share. The Steelers have allowed just a 52.9 percent catch-rate to tight ends through two games, which is much different than the 69.9 percent completion rate they allowed in 2019. They actually allowed 1.93 PPR points per target to tight ends last year, which was the fifth-highest mark in the league, but they faced the fourth-fewest targets, so their overall numbers looked better. With how dominant they are against running backs and wide receivers, it's only natural to expect them to have some sort of weakness. If Will Fuller is held out, the target floor goes up for Akins, but even if he plays, Akins is on the high-end TE2 radar. I'll update later in the week based on the practice reports.

Jordan Akins hauls in two passes in loss on Sunday

Jordan Akins caught two of three targets for 28 yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Steelers by a 28-21 score on Sunday in Week 3 action.

Fantasy Impact

After catching a career-high seven catches in Week 2, Akins targets dropped as QB Deshaun Watson focused on his receivers in the loss on Sunday. Akins is the tight end to own for the Texans but is only worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues.
