While this signing doesn't move the needles, the Chicago Bears adding Chase Daniel to their quarterback room signals the end of the Mike Glennon era in Chicago.

Fantasy Impact:

Glennon plans to sign with Arizona upon his release, freeing up the No. 2 QB spot in Chicago behind Mitch Trubisky. The Bears will be the 31-year-old vet's fourth team since entering the league in 2009. Based on the situation and the talent on offense, he would make for an intriguing QB2 in 2QB or superflex leagues if Mitch Trubisky were to miss any time.

Saints expected to part with QB Luke McCown

Wednesday, April 5, 2017, 11:49am

Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

The New Orleans Saints' addition of Chase Daniel last week means a changing of the guard at the backup quarterback position.

The team plans to release veteran quarterback Luke McCown, the backup the past four seasons, on Wednesday, according to a source with knowledge of the decision.

Fantasy Impact:

McCown, 35, initially joined the Saints in 2013. He re-signed on a two-year, $3 million contract during the 2016 offseason, but with the team adding Daniel to the roster, McCown won't have the chance to play on the final year of his deal.

Report: Eagles will start Carson Wentz at QB if healthy

With Sam Bradford now in Minnesota, who will be the Eagles’ starting quarterback Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns? Before the trade occurred, Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz were second and third on the depth chart, respectively. However, according to ESPN’s Adam Caplan, the Eagles hope to start Wentz over Daniel if he is fully recovered from the rib injury he suffered in Week 1 of the preseason.

Choosing to start Wentz over Daniel makes sense, especially considering Daniel’s lackluster performance this preseason.

Fantasy Impact:

Daniel hasn't looked great but it's been a small sample size for Wentz, who suffered a rib injury in the first preseason game. Wentz's high upside gives him at least some lower-end QB2 or streaming value, however, he doesn't have the greatest WRs to work with despite the addition of Dorial Green-Beckham, who has looked good. Even if Daniel starts Week 1, it's only a matter of time before Wentz takes over. It may take a few weeks for this offense to click with so many moving parts leading up to the start of the season.

Eagles Beat: Paul Turner has been the 'best' Eagles receiver this preseason

CSN Phillly - [Full Article]

Reuben Frank of CSN Philly:

Paul Turner has been the Eagles’ second-best wide receiver this preseason, the best if you consider that Jordan Matthews has been out a couple weeks. Turner has done what you hoped Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff would do. Make plays. Flash. His highlight-reel one-hander from Chase Daniel for 23 yards to set up a touchdown in the third quarter is the kind of play we’ve been waiting to see Agholor make. Turner is an undrafted rookie free agent from Louisiana Tech, and Agholor is a second-year first-round pick, but Turner is flashing in a way that Agholor hasn’t. This team is desperate for wide receivers. So far, one guy is making plays. Not only does Turner deserve to make the team, he’s quickly showing that he deserves to play.

Fantasy Impact:

Turner may be worth a look late in drafts. The Eagles are hurting at receiver and the new regime isn't going to show favoritism to Agholor if someone else is outplaying him.

For the first time in four years, Chase Daniel didn’t report to training camp in St. Joseph with the rest of the Chiefs quarterbacks on Tuesday after joining the Doug Pederson-coached Philadelphia Eagles this offseason.

Who remain in his place are three candidates—Tyler Bray, an undrafted free agent from 2013, Kevin Hogan, a rookie and the fifth-round draft pick from this year and Aaron Murray, the fifth-rounder from two seasons ago—and the opportunity of a lifetime.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say: when it comes to the trust of the starter in Smith, Bray and Murray have an advantage over Hogan in that they were able to watch and learn from how Daniel handled the role.

Much has been made of the Eagles' quarterback situation this offseason, particularly Sam Bradford's feelings after Philadelphia spent the second overall pick on Carson Wentz.

One other name in the mix is a former 49ers passer in McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who is reportedly set to re-sign with the team, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

In addition to Bradford and Wentz, the Eagles have veteran passer Chase Daniel.

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Eagles and QB Chase Daniel agreed in principle on multi-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

Daniel's former coach, Doug Pederson, was singing his praises this offseason. He'll serve as the QB2 behind Sam Bradford, but if Bradford struggles, don't be surprised if Daniel gets a crack at the starting job.

Chiefs QB Alex Smith (spleen, out) missed practice Friday and is out for Week 17. Chase Daniel gets the start. In his only start last season (also against San Diego), Daniel completed 21 of 30 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed seven times for 59 yards and was the #13 QB on the week.

Chiefs QB Alex Smith out for Week 17 with a lacerated spleen

Friday, December 26, 2014, 12:35pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has a lacerated spleen and will miss Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers, trainer Rick Burkholder said Friday.

Chase Daniel will start in Smith's place against the the Chargers, who can clinch a playoff berth with a victory.

Daniel has one career start, which came last season in Week 17 and also was against the Chargers. The Chiefs lost the game but Daniels played well, throwing for 200 yards and a touchdown, completing 21 of his 30 pass attempts.

Fantasy Impact:

Daniel also rushed seven times for 59 yards in his start against the Chargers, so he was the #13 QB that week. We're not expecting Daniel to run the offense as efficiently as Smith does, so we're projecting a reduction in passing yards, which will impact TE Travis Kelce and the other Kansas City receivers.

Sunday, July 27, 2014, 9:39am

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Chiefs need to hold on to quarterback Tyler Bray for at least one more season. Bray has more natural throwing ability than any of the Chiefs’ other quarterbacks, Smith included, and he’s been showing it since Kansas City started training camp.

Bray went undrafted last year out of the University of Tennessee not because of any lack of physical ability but because of questions surrounding his work ethic and his skills in reading coverages and understanding defenses. The Chiefs knew it would take some time for Bray to develop, if he ever would, so they should take every necessary minute to allow him to do so.

Fantasy Impact:

Incumbent Alex Smith is only signed for one more season. There’s no indication the Chiefs are ready to give up on Bray. He has consistently been behind Smith and Chase Daniel but ahead of rookie Aaron Murray in the quarterback rotation at practice.

Chiefs starting offense inactive in meaningless game

Sunday, December 29, 2013, 3:29pm

Chiefs Inactives
Branden Albert T
Dwayne Bowe WR
Jamaal Charles RB
Tamba Hali OLB
Derrick Johnson ILB
Dontari Poe NT
Alex Smith QB

Fantasy Impact:

As outlined in our Who's Motivated? article this week, the Chiefs have nothing to play for today with their playoff spot locked up. As a result Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles & Dwayne Bowe are inactive. Knile Davis should see the bulk of the carries with Cyrus Gray also in the mix. Chase Daniel will start at QB. Avoid all Chiefs if possible as this is an unpredictable fantasy situation.

Chiefs cut Matt Cassel

Thursday, March 14, 2013, 11:07am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Chiefs announced the release of quarterback Matt Cassel on Thursday, multiple media outlets said.

After a 27-touchdown, seven-interception season for a division-title winning Kansas City club in 2010, Cassel struggled the next two seasons. The Chiefs’ trade for Alex Smith and the signing of Chase Daniel signaled the franchise would be going in a different direction at quarterback in 2013.

Fantasy Impact:

Cassel is a fringe (real-world) starter talent so he may end up starting for a QB-needy team in the near future. He threw 64 TDs from 2008 to 2010 (one season with the Patriots and two with the Chiefs). The Chiefs signed former Saints backup Chase Daniel to backup new starter Alex Smith.

Houston RB Arian Foster looks great against Saints

Sunday, August 21, 2011, 7:44am

Associated Press - [Full Article]

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster ran for two touchdowns and fellow back Ben Tate rushed for 95 yards and another score in the first half in Houston’s 27-14 victory over New Orleans.

Foster, the NFL’s leading rusher in 2010, returned after sitting out Houston’s victory in the preseason opener Monday night against the New York Jets because of a sore hamstring.

Tate, a second-round pick in 2010, was seeing his first game action since breaking his ankle in the first preseason game last year. He had a 4-yard TD run and gained 43 yards on another run in the second quarter.

Drew Brees went 7 for 14 for 109 yards in a little more than a quarter for the Saints (1-1). Chase Daniel threw a TD pass to Joseph Morgan, and Mark Ingram scored for New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact:

Foster showed why he's the number one back on the board, and also showed that his hamstring is not an issue. Tate's impressive showing could put him on the radar as Foster's handcuff, and Ingram's touchdown offers proof as to why he's considered a nice value pick heading into the season.
