Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Rewind back to last week to my quote: "It blows my mind they don't utilize their tight ends more, as they've been efficient over the last two years." Adding in last week's performance, there have now been three games where the Texans have targeted their tight ends more than four times. In those games, the finishing lines were 6/85/1, 7/55/0, and 5/83/0. Will there be more room for tight ends to get targeted with Cobb out of the mix? It's tough to say yes considering how we have a large sample size of Deshaun Watson not throwing to them. Meanwhile, tight ends have seen just a 15.5 percent target share against the Lions this season which ranks as the third-lowest mark in the league. Tight ends have accounted for just 12.4 percent of the fantasy production the Lions have allowed to skill-position players, which is the third-worst percentage in the NFL. The odd part is that they've allowed five top-12 tight ends in their last five games, but it makes more sense when you find out that three of them failed to record more than 18 yards and relied on touchdowns to get there. Without the five touchdowns they've allowed, the Lions have allowed just 3.3 receptions and 34.4 yards per game to tight ends, which both rank as the second-fewest in the league. So, you're looking at a touchdown-or-bust TE2 here with Akins.With all the tight ends active once again in Week 11, it was a mess. The routes run were Burton 15, Mo Alie-Cox 15, and Jack Doyle 10. You don't feel confident in any of those numbers in any given week. Burton led them with five targets, and though they netted just two catches for 25 yards, one of them was for a touchdown. Doyle wasn't on the field the last time these two teams met, which led to Burton and Alie-Cox combining for seven targets, six receptions, and 43 scoreless yards. That's not great against a defense that's allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to the tight end position. In fact, everything they've allowed is in the green. The 76.1 percent completion-rate (3rd-highest), 8.21 yards per target (8th-highest), and touchdown every 11.2 targets (6th-most often) are all attractive for streamers, but not when you have a three-way timeshare. Because of that, Burton remains in middling TE2 territory, though he looks like the best play of the bunch.

With Darren Fells in the lineup, it's going to be hard to trust Jordan Akins. However, he's producing with his opportunity. Last week, Akins saw six targets and was able to go 5-83-0 with them. He's not exactly in the circle of trust yet, but fantasy managers are just needing someone who can give them reliable production at the TE position week in and week out. Akins appears to be heading in that direction. He can be plugged in as a streaming option this week, but he's worth monitoring on your waiver wire if you don't end picking him up.
