Jordan Akins Has Impressive Training Camp

Houston Texans tight end Jordan Akins was picked by Aaron Reiss of The Athletic as the most improved player at Texans' training camp this year. Akins was constantly making big plays in practice and showing off his versatility. With Jordan Thomas missing most of camp, Akins may actually be in the lead at this point to open the season as Houston's top tight end. That might not translate to much fantasy value on a team that's reportedly interested in keeping four tight ends, but Akins is worth a spot in dynasty leagues in case he emerges as the number-one guy at the position.

Jordan Akins Expects To Have Versatile Role

Houston Texans tight end Jordan Akins expects to be used in various spots on the field in 2019. While the battle for playing time at the tight end position will be tough between Akins, Jordan Thomas, and rookie Kahale Warring, Akins being able to be used in the backfield and in the slot can help him carve out a role. Still, with wide receiver Keke Coutee expected to see most of the slot minutes, Akins' versatility isn't enough to make him a trustworthy fantasy player in 2019 unless injuries hit in Houston.

Texans Select Jordan Akins At No. 98 Overall

The Houston Texans selected Central Florida tight end Jordan Akins with the No. 98 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft on Friday. Akins will be a 26-year-old rookie after playing in the minor leagues for the Rangers for four seasons. He played tight end in his final two seasons in college and lacks blocking skills. At such an advanced age, Akins doesn't have much long-term upside, but he could have an opportunity in a pass-catching role immediately in 2018 with C.J. Fiedorowicz announcing his retirement. Still, Houston has Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson, too, making it unlikely that Akins carves out any redraft value. He isn't one to target in dynasty leagues, either, because of his age.
