Just as he seemed to be finding his way in the offense,
We loved Daniels' chances to find success Week 8 against the Bengals after hauling in six passes for 58 yards and a touchdown last week. Now he will miss at least one game, with his status moving forward unknown at this point. Fantasy owners in desperate need of a tight end for Week 8 might want to see if
Long-term, it is impossible to say just how this will impact Daniels. Coach John Harbaugh has not ruled him out for Week 9, but he might be limited even if he is able to return that quickly. Daniels isn't a must-drop Fantasy option, but he also isn't someone you absolutely have to have on your roster.
Still, Daniels was third on the team in targets, and that was with Dennis Pitta playing a huge role before his injury. If you have room on your roster, it might be worth hanging on to Daniels for one week to get a clearer picture.

Cook visits the Chiefs in Week 8.
Among the tight ends who have been active for all of their team's games this season, the leaders in targets per game are Jimmy Graham and Greg Olsen. Bet you'll never guess who's third.
Actually, it's not so tough. You're looking at him right now.
For the third straight game,
The problem is his reception-to-target rate is low. Tight ends are usually targeted on underneath stuff, giving them a high conversion rate, but Cook seems to be an exception to the rule.
I say that evens out eventually. Cook has gotten at least eight targets in four of the
He might even be a worthy short-term replacement for Graham owners. True, the Rams host the Seahawks in Week 7, but that's not as bad of a matchup as it seems. The Seahawks have allowed the third-most Fantasy points per game to tight ends this season.
The flag wiped out a long gainer late in the first half. Cook has drawn at least eight targets in four of five games entering Week 7 against the Seahawks.
