Fantasy Football Rankings 2012: Owen Daniels Is No. 13 Ranked Tight End

Staying healthy will obviously be the big wild card for fantasy owners that select Daniels, but if he can manage to do so, he's primed to reward owners with big numbers.

The high-flying Houston Texans offense has been a fantasy favorite for several years now, led by Matt Schaub throwing to one of the league's best wide receivers, Andre Johnson, as well as a top running game led by Arian Foster. They haven't, though, got much production from the tight end position due to injury.

In the last three seasons, starting tight end Owen Daniels has missed a combined 15 starts due to injury. Despite that, Daniels is ranked as the No. 13 tight end on SB Nation's list of the top 20 fantasy tight ends.

Staying healthy will obviously be the big wild card for fantasy owners that select Daniels, but if he can manage to do so, he's primed to reward owners with big numbers. In 2011, Daniels missed just one game and recorded 677 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 54 receptions.
