Texans TE Owen Daniels probably back this week; RB Ben Tate not so much

After being close-but-not-quite for last Sunday's game against the Bears, it looks like Texans tight end Owen Daniels @owendaniels will resume his normal duties this Sunday against the Jaguars. He participated in every practice this week and although he is listed as questionable because of his hip injury, head coach Gary Kubiak said Friday that Daniels has an "excellent" chance of playing.
Meanwhile, running back Ben Tate @BenTateRB will miss his third consecutive game due to a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

Tate's status is worrisome because he practiced on Wednesday before missing Thursday's and Friday's session. The Texans aren't saying much, but he very well might have suffered a setback. However, unless you own Arian Foster, you should have dropped Tate a few weeks ago.
The Jaguars are the only team to not allow a tight end touchdown this season as they have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to TEs. But Daniels has scored in five of his past six games and should be in your lineup for Week 11.
