Summary

The Broncos are going to be featuring the tight end position more this season under new head coach Gary Kubiak. That's why the team went out in free agency and added veteran tight end Owen Daniels. Originally a fourth-round draft pick (2006) by the Kubiak-led Houston Texans, Daniels has worked under Kubiak every season of his pro career. In fact, only when Kubiak missed time due to a health concern and later when he was fired by the Texans (2013), Daniels has played every single snap of his pro career under the guidance of Kubiak. Last season, Kubiak was the offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens and Daniels followed him to a new city. Needless to say, Daniels knows this offense like the back of his hand. He'll be able to step in and start from day one for Denver. Daniels has soft hands, an understanding of how to get open against zone coverage and the ability to make tough catches over the middle. He should immediately become a favorite target for Peyton Manning. In fact, Daniels might be the second-most targeted player in the passing game this year behind wide receiver Demaryius Thomas. Daniels will also be able to make an impression when the team is near pay dirt. Look for Daniels to put up steady numbers in Denver. Fantasy owners should be expecting low-end TE1 numbers from Daniels this season. Durability is a concern with Daniels as he has only played two full seasons as a pro, and the last time he did that was in 2008. (May 17)
