Fantasy value for Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels unaffected by 'rest day'

Bob Levey

Houston Texan playmakers Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels all got the day off of Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Houston Texans gave three key offensive playmakers a rest day on Wednesday. Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and Owen Daniels all got the day off, though it was not considered to be injury related.

The Texans had a rough game on Sunday night, falling to the Packers, 42-24. The loss was Houston's first of the season. The rest should help Foster, who is on pace for a career high in carries; Johnson, who is getting up there in age; and Daniels, who has had injury issues in recent seasons.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners may have been alarmed to find some of their star players on the "did not practice" list, but the Texans' offensive stars are all fine and returned to full practices on Thursday and Friday.

Be sure to start all three of these offensive weapons against the Baltimore Ravens, who are suddenly very vulnerable on defense.
