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 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.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Catchless in 14 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown was not targeted in 14 games with the Bears this season.

Brown's career high for single-season yardage is only 16 receiving yards, so his minimal output isn't overly surprising. The 26-year-old played sparingly on offense as he was mostly utilized on special teams. Brown is set to become a free agent and is likely to have a similar role should he sign elsewhere.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Practices fully Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Brown was limited in practice last week and was inactive for the season opener in Green Bay, but he now appears recovered from the shoulder injury he suffered at the end of August. The 26-year-old is listed as the No. 4 tight end on the Bears depth chart and unlikely to make an offensive impact with Trey Burton, Dion Sims and Ben Braunecker currently healthy.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Inactive against Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Brown injured his shoulder in the preseason finale and was doubtful coming into Sunday. He is listed as the fourth tight end on the Bears depth chart, so his absence shouldn't significantly affect Chicago's offensive production.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Doubtful for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (shoulder) was limited in Friday's practice and is considered doubtful to play in Sunday's game against the Packers.

Brown has been nursing a shoulder injury since the team's preseason finale against the Bills, and while he still managed to make the final roster, the tight end will likely have to remain sidelined for at least one more week.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Dealing with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown sustained a shoulder injury during Thursday's preseason finale against the Bills, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Brown had two receptions for 46 yards in 17 offensive snaps prior to suffering the injury. The 26-year-old was designated doubtful to return but the severity of the issue is not known.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Leads Bears in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught five passes for 90 yards in Thursday's loss to the Bengals.

Although Brown had an outstanding stat line, he did most of his damage with the third-string offense on the field. His biggest play was a 56-yard reception in which he caught a short pass and found plenty of room to run against backup defenders. Despite the strong showing, Brown has an uphill battle to place better than the fourth-string tight end, especially since he's not considered to be a great blocker, making him a bit one-dimensional as a pass catcher.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Returns healthy for HOF Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (ankle) played in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game against the Ravens, JJ Stankevitz of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

While he wasn't credited with any targets, Brown at least proved that he's recovered from the ankle injury he dealt with early in training camp. With Trey Burton, Dion Sims and Adam Shaheen locked in as the Bears' top three tight ends , Brown is squaring off against Ben Braunecker and Colin Thompson for the possibility of one roster spot.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Watching from sidelines
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown (ankle) sat out of Chicago's training camp Sunday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Brown hauled in 13 passes for 129 yards through 14 games in 2017, and that level appears to be his ceiling again. The Bears brought in Trey Burton (previously on the Eagles) in free agency and still have Dion Sims and red-zone target Adam Shaheen on the roster. Brown will instead be counted on for special teams and run-blocking scenarios.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Inks new deal with Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown has signed a contract to return to the Bears in 2018, Adam Hoge of WGN Radio reports.

The Bears failed to extend a qualifying offer to Brown before the start of the new league year, so it didn't seem likely he'd be brought back for another go around. However, it's now clear that he'll return to Chicago in 2018. With that said, Brown is firmly behind Adam Shaheen, Dion Sims and the recently-acquired Trey Burton on the depth chart, likely setting him up for a special-teams role.

Daniel Brown: Not retained by Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Bears and has become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log.

Brown was exclusively a special-teams player in 2017 before injuries hit the Bears' tight end corps. Once finally given offensive responsibilities in Week 8, the 25-year-old went on to accrue 13 receptions for 129 yards on 20 targets. While he seemingly isn't an elite talent by any means, Brown should still garner interest on the open market, especially given his relative youth.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Not targeted in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown didn't see a target in the Week 17 loss to the Vikings and finished the year with 13 receptions (on 20 targets) for 129 yards.

Brown has caught a total of 35 passes in 35 NFL games covering four seasons with the Bears and the Ravens. He'll be a restricted free agent this offseason, but with Adam Shaheen and Dion Sims slated to be the primary tight ends in 2018, he'll either continue to serve in a reserve capacity in Chicago or look for a similar role elsewhere.

Bears' Daniel Brown: Season-high 32 yards in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown caught three passes for 32 yards in Saturday's loss to the Lions.

Brown was targeted four times, but he didn't see a target until the Bears fell behind 20-3 early in the second half. With Adam Shaheen sitting this one out with a chest injury, Brown caught three passes for the first time this season. Although he's posted at least 20 yards in four of his last six games, his 32-yard effort in this contest represented his highest total of the season. He's been a weak fantasy option.
