Darrell Daniels: Back with Cards

Daniels has signed a one-year deal with the Cardinals.

Analysis: With Dan Arnold no longer in the mix, Daniels gives the Cardinals some tight end depth and experience behind Maxx Williams. The 26-year-old is off the fantasy radar, however, after recording eight catches (on 11 targets) for 92 yards and one touchdown in 12 games for Arizona in 2020.

Darrell Daniels: Puts together meager campaign

Daniels recorded eight catches (on 11 targets) for 92 yards and one touchdown in 12 games during the 2020 campaign.

Analysis: Daniels endured a number of injuries this season and ultimately sat out Weeks 11-14 due to an ankle issue. While he finished with the second-most offensive snaps (365 of 1,131) behind Dan Arnold (470) and ahead of Maxx Williams (326) among Cardinals tight ends, Daniels put up a similar line to the latter's 8-102-1 in three additional appearances and on one more target. Heading into the offseason, only Williams is under contract, with the future of unrestricted free agents Arnold and Daniels up in the air.

Darrell Daniels: Ready for Sunday

Daniels (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Analysis: The 26-year-old received the questionable tag after putting in a limited practice Friday, and he's good to go Week 17. Daniels and Maxx Williams should work as the secondary tight ends behind starter Dan Arnold.

Darrell Daniels: Returns to practice, questionable

Daniels (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Katherine Fitzgerald of The Arizona Republic reports.

Analysis: Daniels made his first practice appearance of the week when he logged a limited session Friday. The 26-year-old followed the same practice schedule last week before playing 30 snaps in a loss to the 49ers. Daniels is in a good position to play in the season finale, but his workload is to be determined, as position mate Maxx Williams (ankle) is also questionable.

Darrell Daniels: Held out Thursday

Daniels (hamstring) did not participate during Thursday's practice session.

Analysis: Back-to-back DNPs to kick off the practice week render Daniels' Week 17 status cloudy as Arizona prepares for its final on-field session of the regular season Friday. The tight end will have one more opportunity to get out there and improve his outlook, having already fought through a hamstring issue to gain activation for last Saturday's loss to San Francisco.

Darrell Daniels: Non-participant Wednesday

Daniels (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Daniels didn't practice last Wednesday but was able to suit up in Saturday's loss to the 49ers, as he logged 30 snaps on offense and caught one of two targets for seven yards. His absence from practice this Wednesday could be merely precautionary as the Cardinals prepare to face the Rams on Sunday.

December 30, 2020 7:29 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Clear to face San Francisco

Daniels (hamstring) is listed as active for Saturday's game against the 49ers.

Analysis: Daniels carried a questionable tag coming into the weekend, but he ultimately was able to overcome a hamstring issue that held him out of practice Tuesday and Wednesday. The 26-year-old tight end will provide depth behind starter Dan Arnold, and his role may be more integral than usual with Maxx Williams (ankle) having been ruled out ahead of Saturday's tilt.

Darrell Daniels: Questionable to face Niners

Daniels (hamstring) is considered questionable entering Saturday's game against the 49ers, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: The 26-year-old tight end was unable to practice at all Tuesday or Wednesday, but a limited session to close out the week has his status trending in a positive for Saturday. Daniels has suited up 10 times for the Cardinals this season, but his passing-game contributions have amounted to only seven receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown.

December 24, 2020 5:35 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: DNP on Wednesday

Daniels (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.

Analysis: The same can be said for fellow tight end Maxx Williams (ankle). With the duo not able to practice so far this week, Dan Arnold is the sole healthy TE on Arizona's active roster. The Cardinals will determine the availability for both Williams and Daniels upon the release of their final Week 16 injury report Thursday.

December 23, 2020 3:22 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Back from IR

The Cardinals activated Daniels (ankle) from IR on Saturday.

Analysis: Daniels will be available for Sunday's game against the Eagles after having missed the Cardinals' last four contests. He stands to work behind Dan Arnold and Maxx Williams in Arizona's tight end rotation.

December 19, 2020 2:02 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Designated for return

Daniels (ankle) was designated to return from IR on Wednesday.

Analysis: Daniels will be eligible to return to practice as a result of this move, which also opens a three-week window for the Cardinals to put the tight end back on the roster. He wasn't a critical part of the offense prior to sustaining his ankle injury, catching just six passes for 83 yards and a touchdown in nine games.

December 16, 2020 11:03 AM EST

Darrell Daniels: Out at least three weeks

The Cardinals placed Daniels (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday.

Analysis: In a corresponding move, the Cardinals promoted Evan Baylis from the practice squad. Daniels isn't eligible to return until Week 15 against the Eagles. Dan Arnold figures to receive a bump in usage until Daniels gains clearance.

November 28, 2020 6:06 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Unavailable for Week 12

Daniels (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Patriots, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: After missing a second straight week of practice, Daniels will be sidelined for a consecutive game. Dan Arnold should see more playing time behind starter Maxx Williams until Daniels can return.

November 27, 2020 5:24 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Not playing Thursday

Daniels (ankle) is inactive for Thursday's game at Seattle.

Analysis: After suffering an ankle injury this past Sunday versus the Bills, Daniels was unable to practice at all Monday through Wednesday. Now that he's been deemed unavailable, he'll leave his modest share of the snaps on offense to the duo of Maxx Williams (ankle) and Dan Arnold.

November 19, 2020 4:05 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Questionable for Thursday

Daniels (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday's contest in Seattle.

Analysis: Daniels left this past Sunday's win against the Bills in the third quarter due to an ankle injury, which didn't allow him to practice this week. Meanwhile, Maxx Williams managed one limited showing Wednesday. Considering the banged-up nature of the Cardinals' tight end group, Dan Arnold may be poised for much more work than normal, especially if one of Daniels and Williams are inactive.

November 18, 2020 3:19 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Injures ankle Sunday

Daniels was forced out of Sunday's game against the Bills with an ankle injury, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Daniels left in the second quarter before getting targeted. His departure leaves Maxx Williams and Dan Arnold as the only remaining healthy tight ends Sunday. If he's ruled out, Daniels needs to make a quick recovery ahead of Thursday's clash against the Seahawks.

November 15, 2020 2:33 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: No output Sunday

Daniels didn't reel in his only target during Sunday's 37-34 overtime victory against the Seahawks.

Analysis: Daniels was in the starting lineup and paced all Cardinals tight ends with 42 of 84 offensive snaps, but the usage didn't result in any production. Meanwhile, fellow TE Dan Arnold played 21 such plays and turned them into two catches (on three targets) for 57 yards, including a team-leading 41-yard catch-and-run. Considering Daniels has received at least half of the snaps on offense in five of the last six games, his standing as the top option at the position in Arizona doesn't seem to be in doubt. That said, Arnold is the preferred fantasy option due to his utility as a receiver.

October 26, 2020 6:33 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Gets one target Week 6

Daniels reeled in his only target for one yard during Monday's 38-10 victory in Dallas.

Analysis: Daniels again paced Cardinals tight ends in offensive snap share, getting 71 percent (44 of 62) versus Dan Arnold's 42 percent (26) and Evan Baylis' 10 percent (six). On top of that, Daniels was the only member of the trio to be targeted by Kyler Murray. For the time being, Daniels seems to have a hold on the top TE gig in Arizona, but with six targets in as many games, his weekly contributions are sporadic.

October 20, 2020 3:46 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Records career-best effort

Daniels posted two catches (on two targets) for 37 yards during Sunday's 30-10 road victory versus the Jets.

Analysis: Starting his fourth consecutive game, Daniels led Cardinals tight ends in offensive snap share, playing 67 percent to Dan Arnold's 36 percent and Evan Baylis' five percent. Sunday marked the second time Daniels made an impact in the box score, though, as tight ends aren't heavily featured in an offense paced of DeAndre Hopkins and Kenyan Drake. As a result, Daniels doesn't hold much sway in the fantasy realm.

October 13, 2020 12:36 PM EST

Darrell Daniels: Active for Sunday's game

Daniels (thigh) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Jets.

Analysis: Daniels has played at least 47 percent of the offensive snaps in each of the last three games, serving mostly in a run-blocking role. He has hauled in two passes for 24 yards as well. Expect him to operate in a similar fashion Sunday.
