Owen Daniels, TE, N/A
|TE - #13||---||Injured Reserve||9 years||31||6'3||249||@owendaniels|
2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Oct-21-2013 by Chris Weeks
Update (10/20): Daniels has a broken fibula and will be out until at least week 14 (if not the remainder of the season).
Profile: Even with all the injuries, Daniels still managed to finish the 2012-13 season as a top 10 tight end. Daniels is a nice large target for Schaub's over the middle pass attack offense. That is of course when the Texans throw the ball. Owen's offensive production is only limited by the number opportunities he receives. It is likely Daniels won't be a top 5 receiver, but there's no reason to believe he won't finish in the top 10 again this season.
Owen Daniels has been a solid player for the Houston Texans for many years. But he's 31 years old, coming off a season pretty much lost to a fractured leg and was set to count about $6 million against the salary cap for a team that doesn't have much cap space to begin with. So, Daniels has been cut. The move clears $4.5 million from the Texans' cap.
Daniels said Monday that he feels healthy after that fractured leg pretty much ended his season after Week 5.
Ryan Griffin is now the Texans' top tight end. He gave us a glimpse at the end of the season as he caught 14 passes in the final three games. The 2013 sixth-round pick is a big man -- 6-foot-6, 255 pounds -- but is fairly athletic for his size. He will be a deep sleeper in 2014. His stock will largely depend on who is the Texans' starting quarterback this season. That's a question without an answer right now.

|9.11||World Fantasy Rankings #4 - I BELIEVE. Owen Daniels is far enough removed from his injury trouble and is ready to step up and be a big contributor for Houston again. Andre Johnson gets a lot of attention from the defense and the addition of the rookie Hopkins will help Daniels find open space in the middle of the field. Schaub has always liked Daniels as a security blanket and if you can get this type of production from a TE in the 9th round, you have an incredible value and starter to lean on while loading up with other picks earlier in the draft.|
