Speaking Tuesday, coach John Harbaugh said free agent Owen Daniels has expressed a desire to re-sign with the Ravens.
All the dots suggest Daniels will follow ex-Ravens OC Gary Kubiak to Denver, but the Ravens have a big hole at tight end with Dennis Pitta's (hip) status uncertain. Although he's spent his entire career playing for Kubiak, Daniels will likely stay in Baltimore if the price is right. Feb 24 - 3:02 PM

Free agent Owen Daniels has played his entire career with new Broncos HC Gary Kubiak.

The dots connect from Daniels to Denver. Julius Thomas will likely be too expensive for the Broncos to keep, leaving them with a need at a position Kubiak likes to feature. Daniels was only mediocre at best last season (48 catches for 527 yards), but catching passes from a healthy Peyton Manning (assuming he comes back) would certainly give him a boost. Injury-prone Dennis Pitta could see more targets if Daniels decides to leave Baltimore -- assuming Pitta can gain medical clearance.

Free agent TE Owen Daniels said he thinks he has "a couple more" years left in him.

Daniels will turn 33 in November. He was reasonably effective following Dennis Pitta's season-ending injury, recording 56 catches for 638 yards and five touchdowns in 17 games (including playoffs). Obviously, Daniels was boosted by Gary Kubiak's tight-end friendly scheme and his familiarity with that offense. The Ravens will likely re-up Daniels as insurance on Pitta.
Jan 15 - 12:30 PM

Owen Daniels caught 4-of-11 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

Daniels surprisingly led the Ravens in targets, drawing three more than Marlon Brown. There was a scary moment in the first half, as Daniels appeared to injure his neck. He ended up remaining in the game, missing only a few plays. Two months removed from his 32nd birthday, Daniels posted a 48/527/4 line as he played on a one-year, $1 million deal. He's a favorite of OC Gary Kubiak, and will almost certainly remain in Baltimore unless Kubiak bolts for a head-coaching job. Daniels' days of fantasy relevance are over, but he remains an effective "real-life" player.
Jan 10 - 9:08 PM

Owen Daniels had four catches for 70 yards in the Ravens' Wild Card win over the Steelers.

Daniels was able to get open against the Steelers at the short and intermediate levels. He was Joe Flacco's primary check down, drawing five targets. Daniels remains no higher than the No. 3 option in the pass game. The Ravens play the Patriots in the Divisional Round on Saturday.
Jan 4 - 1:13 AM

Owen Daniels caught one pass for seven yards in the Ravens' Week 16 loss to the Texans.

He was targeted six times in his return to Houston, but Joe Flacco really struggled with his accuracy. He couldn't step into any throws with the Texans' pass rush hammering him at every chance. Daniels gets the Jaguars in Week 17.

Owen Daniels caught four passes for 62 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Jaguars.

He was targeted a team-high nine times against a Jaguars defense that has struggled at times to cover tight ends. Daniels scored the game's lone offensive touchdown, reeling in a three-yard score in the third quarter one play after securing a 29-yard catch. Daniels has days like these. He'll be worth streaming consideration in his return to Houston, along with OC Gary Kubiak, in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 05:13:00 PM

Owen Daniels caught 2-of-2 targets for 27 yards in Baltimore's Week 14 win over the Dolphins.

Daniels has caught exactly two passes in four straight games, failing to eclipse 30 yards in the process. He's off the fantasy radar.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 06:12:00 PM

Owen Daniels caught two passes for 30 yards in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the Chargers.

The first play of the game was a tight end screen to Daniels, who actually looked surprisingly spry as he got loose for 21 yards. After that, his number was barely called even though Steve Smith was wiped out by Brandon Flowers. Daniels won't be a very strong fantasy play at Miami in Week 14.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:53:00 PM

Owen Daniels caught two passes for seven yards in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Saints.

He was targeted five times, good for third behind Steve Smith Sr. and Torrey Smith, who each saw six passes come their way. It was the Smiths who were making things happen on the outside, however. Daniels will be a bottom-barrel TE1 in Week 13 against a Chargers defense that defends the position well.
Tue, Nov 25, 2014 12:18:00 AM

Owen Daniels secured 2-of-4 targets for 20 yards in the Ravens' Week 10 win over the Titans.

He was a big disappointment for Rob Gronkowski owners who streamed him during Gronk's bye. Austin Seferian-Jenkins proved a better option. Daniels is still in the TE1 fantasy hunt based on sheer volume; he's Baltimore's second most heavily-targeted pass catcher behind Steve Smith Sr. The Ravens now go on a bye in Week 11. They will face the Saints in a possible Week 12 shootout.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 04:41:00 PM

Owen Daniels (knee) returned to a full practice Friday and is listed as probable for Week 10.

Daniels was rested on Thursday. He hasn't had any setbacks coming off his knee scope. Daniels is a low-end TE1 for Sunday's matchup with the Titans.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 07:42:00 PM

Owen Daniels (knee) played on 52-of-67 snaps in the Week 9 loss to the Steelers.

Coming off a knee scope, Daniels looked no worse for wear. He recorded a 6-53-0 line and is not even listed on the injury report ahead of Week 10 against the Titans. Desperate Rob Gronkowski owners looking for a bye-week replacement should look Daniels before a Mychal Rivera or Charles Clay type. This Gary Kubiak offense gives the tight end a chance to produce every week.
Thu, Nov 6, 2014 12:02:00 PM

Owen Daniels had six catches for 53 yards in Week 9 against the Steelers.

Daniels played the entire game despite having minor knee surgery last week. He led the team with nine targets and had a touchdown vultured by backup TE Crockett Gilmore in the fourth quarter. Daniels has a 33/328/3 line this season.
Mon, Nov 3, 2014 01:54:00 AM

Owen Daniels (knee) is active for Sunday night's Week 9 game against the Steelers.

Daniels has been cleared to play despite undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last week. He isn't a recommended fantasy option and could see limited snaps. The Ravens inactives are WR Michael Campanaro, CB Jimmy Smith, S Terrence Brooks, LB Zach Orr, OL Gino Gradkowski, DE Lawrence Guy, and OL Jah Reid.
