  Broncos | Denver releases Owen Daniels    Tue Mar 8, 01:37 PM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels was released Tuesday, March 8.

Footballguys view: A bit of a shock considering Daniels and Gary Kubiak's connection. The Broncos love Jeff Heuerman, but the 2015 third-round pick missed all of his rookie season due to a knee injury.

  Broncos | Owen Daniels considering retirement    Mon Feb 8, 07:58 PM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels has admitted that he will think about retirement after winning Super Bowl 50. 'Of course, of course. That's definitely an option,' Daniels told USA TODAY Sports. 'But I'm a man of my word, I signed a three-year deal, so I'd like to keep playing. I feel good enough as long as I can get some work done on my 33-year-old knees.' He has no more meniscus in his left knee, but his right knee caused him more pain during the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: We think Daniels will continue playing, but his role with the Broncos could change in 2016. The team loves second-year pro Jeff Heuerman, and he may take over as the top tight end for the Broncos in 2016.

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels had two catches for 33 yards and two touchdowns in a 20-18 win over the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Daniels started out hot for the Broncos. He only hauled in three catches overall, but two were for scores and he was doing a good job of getting open underneath.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning, Owen Daniels practice    Thu Jan 21, 05:34 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) and TE Owen Daniels (knees) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 21.

Footballguys view: Neither is a guy we feel good about having in our lineups but at least Manning has some upside. Of course, he made some mistakes that Pittsburgh didn't capitalize on and that is a danger against New England. That and the drops from his receivers make him our least favorite fantasy quarterback this weekend.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning, Owen Daniels practice    Wed Jan 20, 06:03 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) and TE Owen Daniels (knees) both practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Footballguys view: Manning is not the same player he used to be, but the Broncos are hoping to find some Mile High Magic on Sunday against the Patriots. If the Broncos can keep the pressure away from Manning, that should greatly help the production of the offense.

  Broncos | Vernon Davis buried on depth chart    Tue Jan 19, 05:03 PM

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis has been passed on the tight end depth chart by TEs Owen Daniels and Virgil Green, mainly after struggling with drops in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The return of QB Peyton Manning as the starting quarterback hasn't helped, either. Davis' opportunities will continue to be limited.

Footballguys view: The Broncos made a splash when they traded for Davis in 2015, and the move hasn't paid off. Instead, Davis barely plays and when he does he's not productive. He's a free agent next year, and the Broncos will likely not bring him back.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning, Owen Daniels probable    Fri Jan 15, 06:34 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) and TE Owen Daniels (knees) both practiced in full all week and are probable to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in the divisional round Sunday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: To avoid the Steelers pass-rushers, Manning may be dumping off short passes to Daniels early and often. Daniels makes for a sneaky TE play in GPPs this week.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning, Owen Daniels practice    Thu Jan 14, 06:23 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) and TE Owen Daniels (knees) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: Manning will be the starter this weekend but as we don't really know how he'll be throwing the ball we'd avoid him in fantasy. He's had some time to get himself healthy but that may not help a quarterback who has looked off all season long.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning, Owen Daniels practice    Wed Jan 13, 05:44 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (foot) and TE Owen Daniels (knees) both practiced in full Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Footballguys view: Manning is going to start for the Broncos on Sunday, his first start since Week 10. That week, he was benched against the Chiefs. Now, Manning is healthy and it will be interesting to see if he's better than he was earlier this year.

  Broncos | Vernon Davis' role diminishing    Tue Jan 5, 04:09 PM

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis has put himself in a difficult spot because of crucial drops in recent weeks, and his playing time hasn't been helped by the fact that the Broncos have been running more of an up-tempo offense of late. TEs Owen Daniels and Virgil Green are more comfortable working at a quicker pace.

Footballguys view: As the Broncos use more high-tempo offense, Davis should see a smaller role. Coach Gary Kubiak said the team trusts Owen Daniels more in those situations because he knows the offense better. It was exciting when the Broncos added Davis via trade, but the move has yielded few results.

  Broncos | Owen Daniels resting Thursday    Thu Dec 31, 01:55 PM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels (rest) is receiving a veteran's rest day during practice Thursday, Dec. 31.

Footballguys view: Daniels isn't terribly productive in fantasy (or on the field) and is no more than a borderline TE2/TE3 against San Diego this weekend.

  Broncos | Owen Daniels productive    Tue Dec 29, 01:38 AM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels caught five passes for 70 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Daniels was clutch for the Broncos late in the game and in overtime. We saw the Broncos use tempo as a weapon against the Bengals, and in that hurry-up offense Daniels was a primary target.

  Broncos | Owen Daniels likely to go    Sat Dec 26, 04:47 PM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels (knees) practiced in full Saturday, Dec. 26, and he's probable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: Don't expect much from Daniels as he's splitting time/targets with Vernon Davis. Find other options, and you likely have better options if you've made it to Week 16.

  Broncos | Owen Daniels takes part in practice    Fri Dec 25, 11:59 PM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 25. The team did not conduct a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Footballguys view: The tight end situation in Denver is not one fantasy owners should trust. Daniels splits time with Vernon Davis, and neither one is consistent enough to be relied on in fantasy leagues.

  Broncos | Owen Daniels limited    Thu Dec 17, 06:27 PM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Vernon Davis is the primary tight end here, and Daniels is a distant second. He's no more than a TE3 this week, and should not be in a lineup.

  Broncos | No practice for Owen Daniels     Wed Dec 16, 06:46 PM

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels (knee) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Footballguys view: It's probably just veteran rest for Daniels, but it is clear that Vernon Davis is still better play of the two Denver tight ends this weekend.

Footballguys view: We've got Sanders as a WR2 with upside. If you can flex him then even better. Daniels is a low-end TE2.

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels (knee) missed practice Thursday, Dec. 3.

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels had six receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Denver Broncos TE Owen Daniels (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.

Footballguys view: With Vernon Davis in town, Owen Daniels already shaky grasp on your fantasy lineup should evaporate. Daniels was never worth more than a TE3 anyway. but if you were using him for a backup, you'll have to find a new one soon.

  Broncos | Denver TEs get involved    Mon Nov 2, 01:19 AM

Denver Broncos TE Virgil Green posted three catches for 61 yards in the Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers, while TE Owen Daniels managed three grabs for 44 yards.

Footballguys view: Coming out of the bye week, there was buzz about the team using Green and Daniels more. They did just that, but this split is not going to help fantasy owners. Both are TE2 level so long as they continue splitting targets.
