Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Removing last week from existence, Fant has totaled in-between 35-57 yards in seven games this season. He's also seen at least five targets in 8-of-9 games, which gives us what we want out of a tight end. If there's someone Fant would like to impress, it's the guy on the other sideline, who his game most resembles from the time they came into the league, as Kelce wasn't always a great blocker. When you adjust for the schedule they've played, the Chiefs are the eighth-best matchup for tight ends in PPR formats, as they average 12.5 percent more fantasy points against the Chiefs than they do in non-Chiefs games. Fant only totaled 3/38/0 on seven targets against them in the first game they played this year, but he was hobbling around all game as it was his first game back from his ankle injury. The game was also played in the snow. There have been five tight ends who've finished with at least five catches and 48 yards against them, which should present a decent floor for Fant in a game they fall behind. The 1.87 PPR points per target the Chiefs have allowed to tight ends is more than enough to go ahead and plug him in as a mid-to-low-end TE1.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.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Akins certainly receives a boost with the Will Fuller news, but he's still in the streaming-TE conversation. Against the Colts, who have been stout against the position this season, Akins should be viewed as a mid-range TE2. Fells should see an uptick in targets as well this week, but he's a low-end TE2.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
If Fant has an actual quarterback behind center, he has some upside against a Chiefs D that is 20th against fantasy tight ends.
