News: 1 day agoAkins caught three of six targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Browns.
Spin: Akins, who has been the tight end target leader for the last several games, was given competition for targets by Brevin Jordan (five), who had been a healthy inactive the previous three weeks. If Houston plans to have Jordan active going forward, or if rookie Teagan Quitoriano's role continues to grow, Akins' opportunities could diminish.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Akins did not make the Giants' 53-man roster and will begin 2022 on Houston's practice squad. Akins played 43% of the snaps during his first four NFL seasons (all with Houston), never clearing 37 receptions or 418 yards in a single season. He has three career touchdowns and his best fantasy season was a 25th in both 2019 and 2020. The 30 year old should be on waivers.
