Description: Ravens tight end Owen Daniels caught a touchdown pass in Week 7 against the Falcons.
Insight: Daniels led the team with six receptions and nine targets on Sunday. It was Daniels' third touchdown of the season, and we expect him to continue to be involved in the passing game.

Description: Ravens tight end Owen Daniels is active for Week 7.
Insight: Daniels appeared on the practice report for non-injury reasons. Start him as you normally would.
 
10/13/2014 5:17:00 PM
Description: Ravens tight end Owen Daniels caught two passes for 34 yards in Week 6 against the Buccaneers.
Insight: Owners could have picked up Daniels due to the favorable matchup against Tampa Bay, but Joe Flacco ate up the Buccaneers secondary so badly, he didn't need to look for his tight end much. Daniels will remain a low-end TE1 in a 12-team league based on matchups.

Description: The Ravens signed former Texans tight end Owen Daniels to a one-year contract on Thursday. SOURCE: John McClain, Houston Chronicle
Insight: He was released by Houston about three weeks ago. Dennis Pitta's presence won't help Daniels as he looks to bounce back from a disappointing 2013 season (252 receiving yards in five appearances).

Description: Houston has released tight end Owen Daniels. SOURCE: John McClain, Houston Chronicle
Insight: Daniels only saw the field five times last season, logging 24 catches for 252 receiving yards and three touchdowns. If he can stay healthy, Daniels should be a strong bounceback candidate for 2014. Of course, a lot of that depends on what team he ends up signing with.

Description: Houston tight end Owen Daniels is hoping to be back Week 14 against the Jaguars. SOURCE: Houston Chronicle
Insight: Daniels broke his leg about a month ago. Before the injury, he had 24 catches for 252 yards and three touchdowns. Garrett Graham (26 receptions, 268 yards, 3 TD) has been starting in his place.

Description: Texans tight end Owen Daniels has been placed on injured reserve with a designation to return. Daniels broke his leg in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: He'll be out for the next eight weeks. Backup Garrett Graham has the same number of touchdowns as Daniels this season so he should be a popular waiver wire pickup this week.
 
10/8/2013 1:32:00 PM
Description: Houston tight end Owen Daniels had an MRI on his injured leg and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, according to Texans beat reporter Tania Ganguli.
Insight: The injury is a non-displaced frature of the fibula. Owens is one of Matt Schaub's favorite targets and has accumulated 24 catches for 252 yards and three touchdowns this season. Garrett Graham will take his place in the passing game.
 
10/7/2013 9:29:00 PM
Description: Houston tight end Owen Daniels had an MRI on his injured leg and is still waiting to hear the results.
Insight: Houston Chronicle beat writer John McClain seems to think Daniels will be out for at least a "few weeks." Backup Garrett Graham would start in his place, though it's hard to trust any Texans receivers with how poorly Matt Schaub has been playing lately.
 
10/6/2013 7:32:00 PM
Description: Texans tight end Owen Daniels had three touchdowns in the first two weeks, but has been held off the board the last two contests.
Insight: Daniels has been dealing with a sore knee, but they will need him against the 49ers.

Description: Texans tight end Owen Daniels (hamstring) didn't practice Thursday after participating on a limited basis Wednesday. SOURCE: Tania Ganguli, Houston Chronicle
Insight: Houston coach Gary Kubiak downplayed the absence. "Owen's fine. He's got a sore hamstring," he said. According to Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com, Daniels did the walk-through portion of practice but the team held him out of physical portions due to cold weather. The TE should be on the field in Week 17.
 
11/20/2012 12:15:00 PM
Description: Texans' tight end Owen Daniels is probable for Thursday's game against Detroit after catching six balls for 57 yards in the game versus Jacksonville.
Insight: As recently as last Friday it looked like Daniels would be on the shelf for Week 11, but he managed to play and come out of the game without re-injuring the hip.
 
11/18/2012 12:20:00 PM
Description: Texans tight end Owen Daniels will start Sunday against Jacksonville.
Insight: As recently as Friday it looked like Daniels would be on the shelf this week but apparently that's no longer the case. He has scored a touchdown in five out of his last six games and it wouldn't be surprising to see him find the end zone again in Week 11. The Jaguars rank 23rd in the NFL in opponent passing yards.
 
11/18/2012 10:34:00 AM
Description: In a surprise move, it looks like Texans tight end Owen Daniels will start Sunday versus Jacksonville according to Adam Schefter from ESPN. Daniels had been a game-time decision because of a hip injury.
Insight: As recently as Friday it looked like Daniels would be on the shelf this week but apparently that's no longer the case. He has scored a touchdown in five out of his last six games and it wouldn't be surprising to see him find the end zone again in Week 11. The Jaguars rank 23rd in the NFL in opponent passing yards.

Description: Houston tight end Owen Daniels (hip) will miss Week 11 against Jacksonville, according to Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union.
Insight: Jacksonville figures to be able to get past the woeful Jaguars without Daniels and this will give him more time to be ready for the Thanksgiving Day game at Detroit. Daniels has five touchdown receptions in his last six games and is probably Matt Schaub's second favorite target behind Andre Johnson.
 
11/12/2012 1:15:00 PM
Description: Houston tight end Owen Daniels (hip) was inactive for Sunday night's game with Chicago, but close enough to test the injury in pregame warmups.
Insight: Daniels should have a decent chance to play in Sunday's game against Jacksonville.
 
11/11/2012 7:22:00 PM
Description: Houston tight end Owen Daniels (hip) is inactive for Sunday night's game with Chicago.
Insight: There aren't many good options available playing Sunday night or Monday with out. Garrett Graham will get the start at tight end, but fullback James Casey will play tight end too and might be a better option.

Description: Houston tight end Owen Daniels (hip) is a game-time call Sunday night against the Bears. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: There aren't many good options available playing Sunday night or Monday if Daniels is ruled out. James Casey, Kellen Davis or Tony Moeaki are probably available but none of those guys are attractive fantasy players.
 
11/9/2012 2:06:00 PM
Description: Houston tight end Owen Daniels returned to limited practice Friday. He's struggling with a sore hip.
Insight: Daniels has been very good this season, catching 37 balls for 478 yards and five touchdowns to put him among the top fantasy tight ends. If Daniels can't go, James Casey would start, but he doesn't have Daniels' deep threat ability.
 
11/7/2012 4:52:00 PM
Description: Houston tight end Owen Daniels was unable to practice Wednesday because of a sore hip.
Insight: The Texans have a tough game coming up Sunday against Chicago and they'd certainly be better off with Daniels in their lineup. If he can't go, the team's other option at tight end is Garrett Graham (10 catches, 122 yards this season).
