Fells wasn’t exactly a fantasy asset last year, but his 34-341-7 line set career highs across the board.
The 7 scores really stand out. He got there with help from 12 red zone targets, which led to all 7 of those TDs. In fact, Fells nearly matched DeAndre Hopkins in red zone target share (19.4% vs 21.0%).
Jordan Akins actually ranked #1 among Houston TEs in total targets (55 vs. 48 for Fells). So the scores were key for a guy who added a ho hum 10.0 yards per catch.
With Hopkins now in Arizona, can Fells build off his 2019?
To be brief… probably not.
While Houston signed Fells to a 2-year, $7 million extension in March, they have the bodies to continue a reliance on TDs. Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb arrived to handle the bulk of Hopkins’ targets. David Johnson arrived to pair with Duke Johnson and give Houston 2 excellent receiving backs.
At TE, Houston’s stocked with intriguing young options. Akins is a former 3rd rounder entering year 3. Kahale Warring — another Round 3 pick — enters year 2 having missed all of 2019 with a concussion. But the Texans “expect him to produce,” per Aaron Reiss of The Athletic. Even a small role could take away from Fells’ already-thin fantasy value.
Fells, a 6’7 target, snagged 7 TD passes in 2019. The 34-year-old entered with 10 career scores. He’s just a late-round option in FFPC leagues.
