Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.
Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Daniels has an illness but practiced in full on Friday, so he should be ready to play in Houston's season opener. The Texans are dealing with the potential absence of Arian Foster, so they may opt to open things up in the passing game.
Fantasy Impact: Owen Daniels isn't the reliable fantasy asset he once was. The Texans don't throw the ball as much as they did in the past, and Daniels has declined some due to injury. Still, if the Texans decide to be more aggressive with Arian Foster's limitations, Daniels could be a beneficiary. He at least has a decent matchup against the Dolphins. Unless you're in a deep league, you can probably find a better option than Daniels, though.
