Jets' Daniel Brown: Consecutive games with a catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught his only target for 18 yards in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Patriots.

Brown caught a ball in each of New York's last two games after previously going without a catch all season. He'll hope to make a roster as a depth tight end next season, be it with the Jets or another team.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Makes first catch of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught his only target for 13 yards in Sunday's 23-16 win over the Browns.

Brown made his first catch of the season count, picking up 13 yards to convert on 3rd-and-9. The fourth-string tight end is a near nonfactor in New York's offense.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Returns to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets re-signed Brown on Sunday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Brown only spent a day apart from New York before the team opted to re-sign him. He'll offer New York depth at tight end behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (undisclosed) was activated off the non-football injury list Saturday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Brown has been on the NFI list since July 30. He is a distant third in the tight end pecking order for the Jets behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin, but he'll look to make an impression at camp regardless. His 2019 season ended in December following ankle surgery, but it now appears his health is finally back up to par.

Jets' Daniel Brown: To NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed Brown (undisclosed) on the non-football injury list Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Brown is a distant third in the tight end pecking order for the Jets behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin. That said, Griffin is still in recovery mode from December ankle surgery, which could have allowed Brown to have increased reps in the coming weeks. Instead, Brown is dealing with an unknown injury of his own, leaving his status in limbo for the time being.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Inks one-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown signed a one-year contract extension with the Jets on Thursday.

Brown appeared in all 16 regular-season games with the Jets in 2019, hauling in seven catches for 72 yards and one touchdown. He also played a key role on special teams. The veteran tight end stands to handle a similar role on the tight end depth chart for 2020.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Three catches in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught three of four targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 13-6 win over Buffalo.

Brown came in with just four catches all season but closed out the campaign in style with his first multicatch effort. He was forced into a larger role with injuries ravaging the tight end depth chart above him, but Brown will go back to a depth role next season, be it with the Jets or elsewhere.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Goose egg in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Steelers.

With their top two tight ends both injured, the Jets have largely ignored the position in the passing game recently. Brown and rookie Tevon Wesco combined for one catch, and the team has more incentive to find out what it has in Wesco than the 27-year-old Brown.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Small role in TNF loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown started at tight end and caught one of two targets for four yards during Thursday's 42-21 loss to the Ravens.

Brown played 29 offensive snaps (49 percent) after Ryan Griffin (ankle) was ruled out for the season ahead of the season. The James Madison product stands to continue splitting tight-end reps with Trevon Wesco going forward, but his lack of upside as a pass catcher probably will keep him off the fantasy radar.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Set to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is expected to start at tight end Thursday against the Ravens with Ryan Griffin (ankle) ruled out for the contest, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

After Griffin exited early in the Week 14 win over the Dolphins, Brown stepped in to play 87 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps, finishing with a seven-yard reception across two targets. The James Madison product doesn't offer much upside as a pass catcher, but he could nonetheless warrant fantasy consideration in leagues that start multiple tight ends due to the extended snaps he'll likely earn again Thursday.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Quiet after Griffin leaves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's 22-21 win over Miami.

Brown and rookie Trevon Wesco were the only healthy tight ends remaining after Ryan Griffin exited early on due to an ankle injury. Even if Griffin is forced to miss time beyond this game, Brown doesn't have enough receiving ability to warrant fantasy consideration.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Gets rare catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 22-6 loss to Cincinnati.

Brown doubled his season catch total with this effort. It's safe to leave the blocking tight end off your radar.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Scores 20-yard TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught a 20-yard touchdown on his lone target in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Redskins.

This was Brown's first catch of the season and second touchdown in his 52nd NFL game. Fantasy owners can continue to ignore the depth tight end.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Brown was considered questionable after working as a limited participant at practice, but he won't end up missing a game due to the ankle issue. The 27-year-old is set to serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Ryan Griffin.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Brown was limited at practice throughout the week and is looking like a game-time decision. Trevon Wescon would be in line to back up Ryan Griffin should he ultimately be unable to go. Chris Herndon (suspension) is set to return in next week against the Cowboys, which will knock Brown one more notch down the depth chart.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Limited with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.

The nature of Brown's injury remains unknown at this time, but it's a positive sign that he wasn't held out of practice entirely. The veteran tight end does most of his damage as a blocker and special teams asset.

Jets' Daniel Brown: One catch in Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught one of two targets for eight yards in Thursday's 22-10 win over Atlanta in Week 2 of the Jets' preseason slate.

Brown's catch came on a second-half pass thrown by third-stringer Davis Webb, suggesting Brown remains little more than a depth option at the tight end position. Rookie Trevon Wesco had a touchdown called back on a penalty in this one and currently represents Brown's biggest competition for the No. 3 tight end spot behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Healthy return to camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown was back at practice Wednesday after tending to a hamstring injury, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Brown sustained the injury during Sunday's practice session but was able to make a return following a short absence. His return won't make major headlines, but for his individual performance, he will be back working in with the second and third teams.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Dealing with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is not participating at Monday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Brown sustained the injury at Sunday's practice and will miss at least some time due to the issue. It's not clear how long the 27-year-old is expected to be sidelined.

Jets' Daniel Brown: Inks deal with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown signed a contract with the Jets on Monday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Brown has seen the majority of his offensive snaps as a blocker since entering the league in 2015 and was not targeted through 14 games with the Bears last season. If the 26-year-old is able to carve out a spot on the 53-man roster, he likely will play a similar role with the Jets.
