Owen Daniels injury: Missed practice puts Week 17 fantasy value in doubt

Elsa

The Houston tight end was downgraded on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels (hamstring) was held out of practice on Thursday after putting in a limited practice on Wednesday. Head coach Gary Kubiak said that Daniels was "fine" however and it seems as though he will start against the Colts in the season finale on Sunday.

Daniels has 59 catches for 689 yards and six touchdowns this season. He had four catches for 40 yards against the Colts in Week 15.

Fantasy Take: It always seemed like Daniels should be "better" than what his numbers reflected. He does have a career high in touchdowns, but six touchdowns is not overwhelming. He is a TE2 in any leagues that are still playing this week.
