Owen Daniels had 4 catches and 87 yards against the Dolphins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels had 4 catches for 87 yards and 21.9 yards per catch as the Texans beat the Miami Dolphins 30-10 in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: The surface numbers looked okay, but he was targeted 8 times, for a poor 50% catch rate, and most of his yards came on a big 23-yard reception in the 1st quarter. Still, Daniels was Matt Schaub's second-favorite target behind Andre Johnson, and for a guy who doesn't project as much more than a TE2, fantasy owners will take these kind of numbers. He'll be another decent option in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
