Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
In his first NFL game, Hamler ran more routes than any other Broncos receiver. He's been mixed in the slot as well as the perimeter, though he's running the majority of them on the perimeter. That's a bit concerning, as the Bucs best cornerback Carlton Davis plays there, but it's worth noting that Davis has 4.53-second speed while Hamler ran a 4.27-second 40-yard dash in pre-Combine testing. The Bucs did allow 14 pass plays of 40-plus yards last year, which ranked as the fifth most, so there's a chance Hamler gets behind the defense. If he keeps getting seven targets like he did in Week 2, Hamler is going to be someone to look at as a boom-or-bust WR5-type option.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.

FantasyPros
Hamler is in line for an increased opportunity with Sutton out for the year and he certainly has the talent and speed to make that opportunity count for fantasy football. With that being said, Hamler is more of a bench stash right now versus a reliable fantasy asset. Against this defense, it's going to be hard to trust him in your lineup. I recommend waiting a week and seeing what his involvement in this offense looks like without Sutton on the field.Akins was solid last week, but there's simply too much volatility with the Houston TEs to rely on any for fantasy this week. Both Akins and Fells make intriguing DFS plays, but they shouldn't be on the redraft radar just yet.
