Owen Daniels good to go for fantasy owners

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY

The Texans tight end fully participated in practice on Friday and will start in Week 4. We discuss the fantasy implications

Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels (knee) was listed as a full participant in the team's practice on Friday and is expected to start against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4. In three games this year, Daniels has 12 catches for 120 yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Daniels has rested his knees throughout his career, so being limited in practice early on in a given week has been the norm over the last two seasons. Fantasy owners shouldn't be too worried, as Daniels has yet to miss any action this year.

When the Texans first drafted Daniels, they always perceived him as a future Pro bowl tight end. Though his career has been hampered by injuries, and he is not quite the cream of the crop at his position in fantasy leagues, his production is generally reliable as long as he's playing.

Daniels may very well have a good day against the Seahawks, who by all accounts have one of the league's best defenses. Texans and quarterback Matt Schaub will most likely have to use Daniels as a safety valve option throughout the game, especially with Andre Johnson (shin) being hampered by injury as well.

Fantasy owners can start Daniels with confidence in Week 4.
