Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: The Texans need all hands on deck for Sunday's matchup against the Patriots, and that especially goes for Daniels, who had a team-high 9 receptions for 91 yards in last week's wild-card win over the Bengals.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels fully practiced Friday, Jan. 4, and is probable for the team's Wild Card game.
Huddle Up: Daniels has been banged up most of the year and is currently nursing chest and knee injuries. He should be good to go for the Texans' playoff game, though Garrett Graham and James Casey continue to steal targets and the occasional touchdown.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back, knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Mainly due to nagging health issues, Daniels' season has mirrored that of the team as whole: Hot at the start with 5 TD catches in the first 8 games, but sluggish down the stretch with only 1 scoring grab over the second half of the season.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 28, after being limited the previous day. He's good to go for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Good thing for the Texans, who still need to win to assure themselves of home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (hamstring, neck) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Not a positive sign for Daniels, who was at least able to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. What happens now Friday will go a long way in determining the TE's status for Sunday.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 21, and is probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Daniels should be out there if you need him, but his fantasy owners can't be too confident as the TE has had 4 straight games with 43 receiving yards or fewer and has found the end zone only once since Week 9.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back) practiced fully Saturday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as probable for the Week 14 game against the New England Patriots Monday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Between Daniels, Garrett Graham and FB/TE James Casey, Texans' tight ends have hauled in a dozen scoring receptions this season -- making for one of Week 14's most favorable matchups going against a Patriots' defense allowing the second-most fantasy points to opposing TEs.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Daniels leads the team in receiving TDs (5) and ranks second in receptions (43) and yards (535), but the red-zone production of fellow TEs Garrett Graham and James Casey (5 combined TDs) is sapping some of Daniels' fantasy value.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back) fully participated in practice Tuesday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Good to see Daniels practicing the day after a game considering his recent injury woes. He will make an excellent Gronkowski substitute for those lucky souls who own him as well.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back, hip) will be a game-time decision Sunday for the Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Daniels, the Texans' second-leading receiver, was sidelined in Week 10 but has come back and practiced all week and is officially listed as questionable. Most every sign -- including late-week comments from Daniels and coach Gary Kubiak -- point toward the TE playing.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back) is out for Week 11.
Huddle Up: It looks like James Casey will be a solid sleeper this week against the Jaguars. Losing Daniels for a second week could be troublesome for his fantasy owners, but Casey should provide some relief if there is nobody better on the free agent market in your league.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: It's a good sign that Daniels was at least able to do something in the team's first practice of the week after sitting out Week 10. Check in on his progress the rest of the week.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back) and RB Ben Tate (hamstring) have a chance to play in Week 11, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.
Huddle Up: This isn't saying anything. Both players -- particularly Daniels, who was a game-day decision -- had a chance to play in Week 10 but didn't. Daniels reportedly is dealing with severe back bruise, so he would seem more likely to play than, Tate, who has missed the past 2 games.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back) is still sore and will be a game-time decision in Week 10.
Huddle Up: This presents a conundrum for owners because the Texans are playing on Sunday night. If you have the roster spot, it might be wise to pick up another tight end that plays on Sunday or Monday night. James Casey would be a nice fill-in for Daniels if he is available. You could also just start your alternate tight end he is comparable.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Huddle Up: It's only the week's first practice, but it's definitely a situation to keep a close eye on with Daniels ranking behind only the Patriots' Rob Gronkowski in terms of total fantasy points among TEs (Huddle Performance scoring).

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels had four catches for a team-high 79 yards and a TD in a 23-17 win Monday against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: With his 34-yard scoring reception to cap the first offensive possession of the game, Daniels now has a TD catch in each of his past 3 games. He leads the Texans with 23 receptions for 311 yards and the 3 scores, and is back among the league's top 10 fantasy TEs.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (thigh) and WR Andre Johnson (groin) practiced fully Saturday, Oct. 6, and both are listed as probable for the Week 5 game Monday, Oct. 8, against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: This is a double dose of good news for Matt Schaub's fantasy owners, as the Texans' QB will have his top 2 targets Monday night.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (thigh) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 5.
Huddle Up: This is less concerning than Andre Johnson's injury at the moment because the Texans have a pretty good replacement in James Casey should Daniels be less than 100 percent. It looks like he should be a full go this weekend, but monitor his status Sunday morning.
