The 20 yards were Daniels' lowest output since Week 3 against the Browns, when he had one catch for 8 yards. The Ravens are on a bye Week 11 before returning to action Week 12 at New Orleans.
Though he missed Week 8 because of a minor knee procedure,
The production wasn't great, but by tight end standards, it wasn't bad either. He caught six passes for 53 yards, which is enough to keep you afloat at the position if you don't have a true standout like Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, Julius Thomas, Antonio Gates or Greg Olsen.
Of course, if you don't own one of those five (or maybe Martellus Bennett), you're just playing the touchdown-or-bust game at tight end. As one of quarterback Joe Flacco's preferred targets, Daniels has a better chance than most fringy tight ends of scoring a touchdown in a given week.
Daniels was making his return to the field after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last week, and he saw fellow tight end Crockett Gilmore score a one-yard touchdown on his only catch. Daniels logged two receptions on the team's first three plays but didn't factor into the passing game again until the second half when the Ravens were playing from behind.
Smith started the season on fire, posting four 100-yard performances in six games while scoring four times, but he's been held to 11 receptions, 138 yards and no scores in his last three games combined. Both players will look for bigger days when they face the Titans in Week 10.
Daniels underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last week and missed his team's Week 8 matchup but is ready to roll just one week later despite being listed as questionable on Friday's injury report. He has recorded 27 receptions, 275 yards and three touchdowns in five games. Canty was also listed as questionable to play Friday but will suit up for the big divisional clash.
