Daniels will Improve in 2009
While he only had two touchdowns, Owen Daniels made the Pro Bowl as an alternate in 2008.
An achievement like that shows the kind of respect people around the league have for this tight end.
I believe the Texans are primed for a big year, as an organization in 2009. In this talented offense, look for Daniels to post better numbers overall.
I'm not sure he will ever be a really good touchdown maker, but he has the size to accumulate touchdowns as a compliment to Andre Johnson. Especially inside the red zone where tight ends tend to score.
This season, I see Daniels making a strong run for 1,000 yards receiving and maybe five touchdowns.
Owen Daniels Fantasy Football Ranking in 2009
Look for Owen as a nice tight end at the later part, of the middle rounds, of your draft. You may also be able to slide down, further than that and still get this tight end.
It seems to me that fantasy owners, still don't want to give the Texans offense credit for being a good. This is understandable as they haven't reached the playoffs yet. But I believe this year that Houston is ready to make a strong run at the playoffs in 2009.
- Good overall skills
- Great offense
- Plays in a dome
- Pass first offense
- Not a great touchdown maker
- Texans need to prove they are for really in the NFL
