Player News


Owen Daniels (knee) is listed as probable for Week 12.

Daniels was upgraded to full on Friday after practicing on a limited basis the last two days. The Broncos used heavy tight end sets in Week 11, but Daniels will see fewer targets with Emmanuel Sanders (probable, ankle) returning. Daniels isn't more than a low-upside TE2.
Nov 27 - 4:55 PM

Owen Daniels (knee) was limited in Wednesday’s practice.

It’s likely a maintenance day. Daniels didn’t look to have any setbacks on 59 snaps last week. The Broncos used two-tight end sets as a base offense in Brock Osweiler's first start, employing Daniels and Vernon Davis equally.
Nov 25 - 6:48 PM

Owen Daniels caught 4-of-5 targets for 69 yards in Week 11 against the Bears.

Daniels led the Broncos in receiving, but finished behind Demaryius Thomas (8) and Vernon Davis (6) in targets. He didn't look limited despite missing practice time. Daniels is going to continue losing work to Davis moving forward. He won't be more than a low-end TE2 for Week 12.
Nov 22 - 5:27 PM

Owen Daniels (knee, shoulder) is listed probable for Week 11.

Daniels returned to a full practice Friday. He'll continue losing snaps to Vernon Davis at less than 100 percent. Daniels isn't a TE2 option.
Nov 20 - 5:17 PM

Owen Daniels (knee, shoulder) returned to Broncos practice on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Daniels will be fine for Sunday's game against the Bears, but with Vernon Davis due for a bigger role, Daniels isn't on the TE2 radar.
Nov 19 - 5:30 PM

Owen Daniels caught 1-of-5 targets for 14 yards in Denver's Week 10 loss to the Chiefs.

One of his missed connections was a bad drop. In the process of being overtaken by Vernon Davis on the depth chart, Daniels' 2015 fantasy relevancy has come and gone.
Nov 15 - 8:25 PM

Owen Daniels (shoulder, knee) is probable for Week 10.

Daniels was held out on Wednesday before practicing the last two days. Despite coming off a 6/102/1 line, he isn't more than a low-end TE2.
Nov 13 - 6:21 PM

Owen Daniels (shoulder, knee) returned to Broncos practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Daniels should be good to go for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Although he's coming off his best game of the season, Daniels should start losing snaps to Vernon Davis. He's a last-ditch TE2.
Nov 12 - 5:26 PM

Owen Daniels caught 6-of-9 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown Week 9 against the Colts.

This game came out nowhere and less than a week after the Broncos acquired Daniel's replacement in Vernon Davis. Daniels was involved in the offense early in the game, picking up 20 yards on a screen pass on the second drive, but he turned it on in the third quarter. Daniels got loose on a bootleg for a 37-yard gain on a field goal drive, and he capped off a touchdown drive early in the fourth with a one-yard score. Daniels had not topped 45 yards in any game this season before this week, and he is still on pace for just 462 yards. Despite the big game, Daniel's days as the top tight end in Denver are likely numbered.
Nov 8 - 8:39 PM

Owen Daniels caught three pass for 44 yards in Week 8 against the Packers.

It was one of Daniels' better games, but he was still outplayed by Virgil Green, who finished with 61 yards on three targets. Daniels will be a low-end TE2 for Week 9.
Nov 2 - 1:01 AM

Owen Daniels caught 2-of-3 targets for 24 yards in the Broncos' Week 6 win over the Browns.

Daniels didn't catch his first pass until the overtime period. We couldn't blame you if you had forgotten Daniels even played for the Broncos before he caught a couple balls in extra time. He was a non-factor all day. With back-to-back duds and suffering a shoulder injury Sunday, Daniels is waiver-wire fodder.
Oct 18 - 5:58 PM

Owen Daniels failed to catch any of this five targets in the Broncos' Week 5 win over the Raiders.

Daniels was the ultimate test to the Raiders' league-worst tight end defense, but the broken-down 33-year-old predictably face-planted in the dreamy matchup. Peyton Manning tried to get the ball to Daniels in the end zone twice, but had one pass batted at the line of scrimmage and the other was picked off in the end zone by Charles Woodson. Daniels can safely be dropped in 10-12 team leagues.
Oct 11 - 8:34 PM

Owen Daniels caught 2-of-5 targets for nine yards and a touchdown in Denver's Week 4 win over the Vikings.

One of Daniels' missed targets was a horrible third down drop on Denver's opening series. With the Broncos executing a brilliant play fake, Daniels was left completely uncovered on his touchdown. Through four games, Daniels finds himself on pace for 48/252/8. He's a wheezing TE2 option.
Oct 4 - 8:18 PM

Owen Daniels secured 5-of-9 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Week 3 win over the Lions.

Daniels played the majority of snaps over Virgil Green, who finished with one target. He caught a game-sealing 11-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Daniels will remain a low-end TE2 for Week 4 against the Vikings.
