Akins will compete for a roster spot with the Giants this preseason. He's one of three new tight ends brought into New York, including veteran Ricky Seals-Jones and rookie Daniel Bellinger. With three touchdowns in four seasons, Akins is less likely to help your Fantasy team than either new Giants tight end.
Jordan Akins is only in his fifth year but is already 30 years old. He averaged 22 yards per game in four seasons with Houston, despite the Texans having plenty of need for playmakers over the middle. Neither he nor Ricky Seals-Jones were able to capitalize on one-year deals in New York. He's a street free agent with very little time to find a new home.
