News: Daniels will be the Ravens' starting tight end now that Dennis Pitta (hip) has been ruled out for the rest of the season, the Ravens' official website reports. Impact: Prior to Pitta's injury, Daniels had been playing more than half of the offensive snaps as one of the league's more involved No. 2 tight ends. Daniels figures to see a significant increase in targets, as he will play quite a few more snaps, with a lower percentage of those snaps coming in formations that favor the running game. Daniels has a history with Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, who was the Texans' head coach for the veteran tight end's entire eight-year run in Houston. While that relationship will likely work in Daniels' favor, fantasy owners should still expect a bit less production than what Pitta would have provided. Also worth keeping in mind is Daniels' injury history, as he's missed 26 games since the start of the 2009 season.(RotoWire, )

News: Daniels' teammate Dennis Pitta suffered a potentially serious hip injury during Sunday's 23-21 win over the Browns, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports. Impact: One week after scoring a pair of touchdowns, Daniels appears to have seen his fantasy value rise, despite catching just one pass for eight yards on one target. With Pitta suffering a dislocated hip at the least, Daniels is set to take over as the team's top tight end, possibly for the rest of the season. He's been doing a nice job as the No. 2 tight end, and while he probably won't match Pitta's expected production, Daniels should see quite a few looks from Joe Flacco in Gary Kubiak's offense (his former head coach).(RotoWire, )

News: Daniels hauled in all five of his targets for 28 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 26-6 win over the Steelers. Impact: Both touchdowns came on play-action passes at the goal line, with Daniels breaking completely free for a pair of easy scores. He also added some tough catches over the middle, looking surprisingly spry for a second straight week. The Ravens primarily worked out of two-TE formations, rarely using a fullback, and only using three-wide sets on obvious passing downs. As encouraging as all that was for Daniels' fantasy prospects, he's still only worth considering in deep leagues, as he's the clear second fiddle to Dennis Pitta.(RotoWire, )
