Chase Daniel Fantasy Football News 2020

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Monday that QB Mitchell Trubisky has been diagnosed with a right hip pointer. The injury reportedly occurred late in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Rams. Trubisky played the 3rd quarter and most of the 4th before getting yanked for QB Chase Daniel. “Every decision that was made, it had zero to do with his play," Nagy said. "It was completely based off his injury and where he was at.” A healthy Trubisky will remain Chicago's starter, but you should continue to stay away from this situation in fantasy football.

The Bears pulled QB Mitchell Trubisky out of Sunday night's game late in the 4th quarter. The team reported that Trubisky has a hip injury, but we didn't see the injury while watching the game. Trubisky also watched the final drive while pacing the sideline, as opposed to getting treatment or examination. Trubisky was 24 of 43 for 190 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT when he left. We'll see where this goes.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is out for this weekend’s game against the Raiders. He reportedly has a shot to return after the Week 6 bye. QB Chase Daniel gets the start on Sunday and is in the QB2 mix in the plus matchup.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Raiders in London with his left shoulder injury. The team hasn't provided any details on the injury, but former NFL head team Dr. David Chao believes Trubisky dislocated the shoulder and tore his labrum. Since it's the non-throwing shoulder, Chao believes Trubisky will end up missing just 1-2 weeks. Chicago has a Week 6 bye, so Trubisky might end up just missing 1 game. QB Chase Daniel figures to start vs. the Raiders this weekend.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Trubisky's shoulder is dislocated with a slight labrum tear. He's expected to travel to London with the team but likely won't play.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky suffered a left shoulder injury early in Sunday's game against the Vikings and has been ruled out. This looks like a serious injury. We'll pass along an update on Trubisky when we get one. QB Chase Daniel is in for Chicago.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start today but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He put in a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start on Sunday but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Bears QB Chase Daniel is expected to start this weekend's game against the Giants. QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday, but the team "wants to play it safe" with him, according to Garafolo. Daniel played conservative football in Detroit on Thanksgiving, completing 27 of 37 passes for 230 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. In a tougher matchup in New York, he's just a low-end QB2 for Week 13.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. HC Matt Nagy reiterated that Trubisky's shoulder injury isn't a "long-term issue," but it's looking like he'll miss at least 1 more game.

The Eagles have released QB Chase Daniel. Signed to a 3-year, $21 million deal last offseason, Daniel attempted exactly 1 pass in his illustrious Philly career. He figures to land a backup job elsewhere relatively soon. The Eagles, meanwhile, brought back QB Nick Foles on a 2-year, $11 million deal to back up Carson Wentz.

According to ESPN’s Adam Caplan, the Eagles are planning to start Carson Wentz Week 1 if healthy. Wentz only appeared in the 1st preseason game due to a rib injury. Ready or not, the Eagles seem poised to let their 2nd overall pick play right away. Wentz should certainly be owned in 2-QB leagues.

The Vikings have acquired QB Sam Bradford from the Eagles in exchange for a 2017 1st-round pick and a conditional 4th-rounder in 2018, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's an aggressive move from a Minnesota team that's in a championship window right now. Bradford certainly isn't an All-Pro, but he's certainly an upgrade over Shaun Hill. We'll see if Minnesota can get Bradford ready for its opener in just 8 days, but he obviously won't be a Week 1 fantasy option. The Vikings will remain a run-first team, so Bradford will struggle to ascend beyond QB2 territory. His arrival is good news for RB Adrian Peterson, WR Stefon Diggs and the rest of Minnesota's skill-position guys. Meanwhile, Bradford's departure from Philadelphia figures to speed up QB Carson Wentz's debut. The rookie is still recovering from his rib injury and is a long shot to be under center Week 1. But we'd bet on him being there by October. QB Chase Daniel figures to open the season as Philly's starter.

Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice says "there's a very good chance (QB Carson) Wentz won't even dress on game day" this fall. That looks like more of an opinion/projection from a writer than a report from any team source, but Kempski seems pretty plugged in and attentive to what goes on with the Eagles. Philly's QB situation will continue to develop through this summer, but the money spent on Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel in the offseason suggests the team would like to see them carry the position in 2016 and allow Wentz to come along relatively slowly.

NFL Network's Albert Breer hears that the Eagles will give QB Chase Daniel "every chance" to beat out QB Sam Bradford for the starting job.  Philly gave Daniel a 3-year deal worth $21 million with $12 million guaranteed -- somewhere in between backup money and true starter money.  Daniel has made just 2 career starts, but he's spent the past 3 seasons in former Chiefs OC and current Eagles HC Doug Pederson's offense.  That gives him an early leg up on Bradford.  We'd still consider Bradford, who inked a 2-year, $36 million deal, the favorite to be under center come Week 1, but this will be a battle to monitor all summer.  Of course, the winner is unlikely to be more than a lower-end QB2.

QB Chase Daniel has agreed to a deal with the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  He'll be reunited with HC Doug Pederson, who was Daniel's OC in Kansas City for the past 3 seasons.  Daniel spent the majority of that time backing up Alex Smith but did make 2 starts, completing 64.9% of his passes with 1 TD and 0 INT.  He'll remain in a backup role in Philly but will be behind a QB in Sam Bradford who's managed to play all 16 games in just 2 of 6 years since entering the league.  Daniel is a solid bet to make starts in 2016.

Chiefs QB Alex Smith has a lacerated spleen and will miss Sunday's game against the Chargers.  Smith practiced earlier this week but told the training staff that he didn't feel right.  That's when the spleen injury was discovered.  Smith's absence means that QB Chase Daniel starts the finale vs. San Diego for the 2nd straight year.  He was solid in this spot last season, throwing for 200 yards and a score and running for another 59 yards.  He's a smart, accurate and mobile QB -- not unlike Smith.  And at a minimum price on the DFS sites, he's an intriguing Week 17 play.

The Chiefs are expected to start QB Chase Daniel over QB Alex Smith in today's meaningless finale at San Diego.  Just another reason why your fantasy season should not extend into Week 17.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid admitted that he'll consider resting starters in Sunday's finale against the Chargers.  Kansas City is locked into the AFC's #5 seed and has nothing to play for.  We're not expecting QB Alex Smith or RB Jamaal Charles to see much -- if any -- action.  QB Chase Daniel and RB Knile Davis would replace the starters.

The Chiefs have signed QB Chase Daniel to a 3-year deal.  The former Missouri Tiger has attempted just 9 regular-season passes at the NFL level.  But he emerged as a hot name in league circles over the past couple months.  He's a nice fit in HC Andy Reid's offense.  Of course, Alex Smith is locked in as Kansas City's starting QB for now.  But Daniel gives them a capable backup.  And he could get on the field if Smith reverts back to pre-Harbaugh form.
