Game status: Jordan Akins is INACTIVE for Week 7.
The Houston Texans are most likely not going to have tight end Jordan Akins in action again this week. He’s been dealing with both an ankle injury and a concussion, and hasn’t played since week 4. That means more work Daniel Fells, who’s been a viable fantasy producer with Akins sidelined.
Fantasy Football analysis: Texans TE Darren Fells
This week’s draw against the Packers is a tough one. Green Bay has mostly held tight ends in check this season, and until last week they had yet to surrender a touchdown to one. But Rob Gronkowski managed to score and post 78 yards against the Packers last week. Fells may not be the best option at tight end this week, but he’s a decent streamer.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Daniel Fells.
