Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I wish we could get just one of these guys active on gameday each week, as they've combined to receive a 17.0 percent target share, but when you start dividing that up, it becomes a mess. Akins has missed the last two weeks with a concussion though he has practiced in a limited capacity. He should be expected back soon, but if he remains out, Fells gets a big jump in the rankings, as he did the last two weeks. Due to the limited plays their opponents have, the Packers have faced just 27 tight end targets through five games, or 5.4 per game. They've been below average on those targets, allowing a massive 10.0 yards per target, which ranks as the second-most in the NFL, but they've allowed just one touchdown, so when you factor in the limited targets, it drops them in the fantasy points allowed category. Rob Gronkowski was the first tight end to finish better than TE12 against them, but he also saw eight targets a number we know neither of these tight ends is getting if they're both in the lineup. If Akins is active, he's the preferred option, but not a great TE2 option. If Akins is out again, Fells would become a middling TE2 option with some touchdown upside in a game that's projected for a lot of points.He was held out last week, but it's not like you were contemplating playing him anyway. The Bills tight end room has been a mess, combining for just 24 targets through six weeks, which amounts to a 10.9 percent target share between Knox, Tyler Kroft, and Lee Smith. This is not a situation you need to monitor.

The Packers are 14th against fantasy tight ends, Fells should be in the TE2 discussion this week at home.
