News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 13): Daniels was the only mainstay of the Ravens passing game to fail to score against the Bucs, but he could get right against the Falcons this week. With a blossoming offense and tons of confidence in Baltimore, Daniels is still worth at least a look as a streamer or Zach Ertz bye coverage.
General News (Fri Oct 17): practiced fully on Friday and is expected to play this weekend.
General News (Thu Oct 16): did not practice on Thursday (he was excused).
Week 7: vs Atlanta Falcons
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Joe Flacco went off in the first seventeen minutes of the game at Tampa Bay last week, slinging TDs apparently at will - Baltimore led 35-0 on the strength of those five passing scores at 13:57 left in the second quarter! WOW! When it was all said and done, Flacco finished with 21/29 for 306 yards passing, five TDs and zero interceptions thrown, and a 48-17 victory. Torrey Smith did make good on his Twitter promise to improve, and he hauled in two of the five passing scores, with five targets for 4/51/2, while Steve Smith led the team in receiving with six targets for 5/110/1 on the day. Only Owen Daniels disappointed, with just three targets for 2/34/0 receiving - backup wide receivers Michael Campanaro (two for 2/28/1) and Kamar Aiken (three for 2/20/1) also pulled in TDs during the saturation bombing of Tampa. The Falcons' pass D is not good, averaging 277.7 net passing yards allowed per game, with three times as many TDs (six) as interceptions generated (two, tied for next-to-last in the NFL). The Falcons have a paltry seven sacks, tied for 26th in the NFL. Jay Cutler threw for over 350 net yards last week (26/38 for 368 net passing yards, one TD and zero interceptions, with three sacks taken for -13 yards); Eli Manning had a more restrained 19/30 for 193 net yards, one TD and zero interceptions vs. Atlanta two games back. Advantage, Baltimore. They enjoy great matchups in both phases of the game - they may well approach 500 yards combined on offense again this week...

2014 Week 4 vs CAR (6 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
Owen Daniels seemed to maintain roughly the same role he had through the first 3 weeks. Replacing Pitta will come by committee. Daniels' first reception came midway through the 2nd quarter. He was set up with a tight end screen, followed his blockers well, and picked up 13 yards. Daniels followed it up with a very impressive 3rd down hands catch he extended for and snagged out of the air. Daniels made another hands catch to convert a third and 8
2014 Week 5 vs IND (7 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec)
Owen Daniels was the Ravens most consistent offensive player against the Colts. He won his 1 on 1 matchups and made every catch he was asked to. His first was an in route that was covered initially but he did well to keep working and find open space. Daniels made a key catch on 4th down, getting behind his man up the seam. Daniels is key in attacking the middle of the field for the Ravens against pressure or in exploiting linebackers in coverage.
2014 Week 6 vs TB (3 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
Owen Daniels had an end zone target bounce off his hands as he came open against zone coverage. Daniels caught his first pass on 2nd and long running a corner route. Daniels easily outran his man and caught the pass perfectly in stride up the sideline for 30 yards.
