Darren Fells Receives Two-Year Extension

The Houston Texans agreed to a two-year, $7 million extension with tight end Darren Fells on Tuesday, according to sources. Fells will make $4 million in 2020 after setting a career high with seven touchdowns in 2019. The soon-to-be 34-year-old will be the top pass-catching tight end for quarterback Deshaun Watson again next season, but Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas also loom as players that could take targets away. Don't overvalue Fells in fantasy drafts this fall just because of his seven scores last season, as he'll mainly be a touchdown-dependent TE2 in fantasy.

Darren Fells Ends Season With Another Touchdown

Houston Texans tight end Darren Fells set the team record for touchdowns by a tight end during the regular season, and he added another in Sunday's playoff loss to the Chiefs. Fells finished with three catches for 22 yards and the score. Fells is a free agent this year and his 2019 performance might price him out of Houston's range, especially when the team has three young tight ends on the roster. But Fells was also incredibly important to Houston's offense success, so don't be surprised to see him back in a steel blue uniform next year. He'd be a low-end TE1 with a lot of boom/bust potential once again in 2020.

Kenny Stills, Darren Fells, Jordan Akins Questionable

Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills (knee) and tight ends Darren Fells (hip) and Jordan Akins (hamstring) are all questionable for the Divisional Round against the Chiefs on Sunday. All three were limited in practice on Friday, so they should be able to suit up, but don't take their statuses for granted. Stills has been playing through his injury for weeks and should be active, but he's even more of a DFS long shot with Will Fuller (groin) expected back. Fells was on the field often with Akins out in the wild-card round, so he'd be a sneaky DFS sleeper if Akins misses another contest. The 33-year-old Fells is a touchdown-dependent fantasy commodity, however.
