2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

More of a blocker than a pass catcher, Fells somehow managed to score four TDs on just 20 targets a year ago. He’s not likely to repeat that in 2015 and may need to battle Adrien Robinson for snaps be...

Daniel Fells: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Fells (ankle) is unlikely to play in the NFL again, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Fells has already undergone five surgeries on his foot to fight a MRSA infection. He's been in the hospital since Oct. 2 and may need to stay a while longer. Fortunately, he's been doing much better the last few days since his doctors found a combination of antibiotics that worked.
Fells will be placed on injured reserve after developing a staph infection on his chronically injured ankle, NJ.com reports.

Fells, who underwent unexpected foot surgery this week, will likely be placed on IR, NFL.com's Ian Rapaport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Fells did not travel with the Giants for their Week 4 contest against the Bills, and it appears he could be out for an extended period of time following the foot surgery. As the team's No. 2 tight end, Fells saw plenty of snaps this season as Larry Donnell's backup. Donnell will likely receive a more prominent role in Fells' absence, along with Jerome Cunningham (knee) and Will Tye providing additional depth.
Fells (ankle) is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Bills.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Will compete for the starting tight end job after inking a deal with the Giants in January. Fells, who sat out the entirety of the 2013, will be hard-pressed to beat out Adrien Robinson for starting duties.

2013

Fells was unseated on the Patriots' depth chart at tight end by Zach Sudfeld and Michael Hoomanawanui and released in August.

2012

Fells gives the Patriots, a team that deploys the TE heavily, an experienced option at the position. While Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are ahead of him -- and the upside plays in fantasy -- Fells, who had 19 catches for 256 yards with three TDs in 2011 for the Broncos, could merit consideration if either of the aforementioned duo ever goes down with an injury.

2011

Fells started last season No. 3 on the depth chart but took advantage of injuries to his tight-end teammates to increase his role. One of the bigger tight ends at 6-4, 270, Fells has the ability to run through his opponent and break tackles. His size made him a great target for Sam Bradford last season, as he used his big frame to shield defenders while the ball is in the air. However, instead of re-signing with the Rams, Fells heads to Denver, where he will compete with Richard Quinn, Dan Gronkowski, Dante Rosario, Julius Thomas and Virgil Green for reps at the tight end position. Because of the strong competition, Fells is a relatively weak fantasy option this season.

2010

Fells re-signed with the Rams in March and heads to camp with a good shot at earning the starting tight end job. While his numbers — 21 receptions for 273 yards and three touchdowns on 35 targets in 14 games — do not overwhelm, they are more a reflection of St. Louis’ putrid passing game than his pass-catching skills. His fortune could change this season with the No. 1 player in the draft, Sam Bradford, at the helm. If Bradford succeeds, that likely will mean good things for Fells. And if Bradford struggles, well, he’ll probably be looking for his tight end as a dump-off safety valve. Fells will probably not be fantasy relevant this year but should be kept in mind for the future as he and Bradford develop together.

2009

Fells will compete with Billy Bajema for the back-up TE role behind starter Randy McMichael. With the new coaching staff expected to use more multiple tight-end sets the loser of that battle is still likely to end up on the 54 man roster as a primary back-up and special teams player.

2008

Fells has seen training camp and practice squad time, but no game action, in three years in the league; he'll try to win a special teams role. Could see action as an H-back if he sticks.

2007

Fells is listed as the team's third tight end for the upcoming season. He was on the roster for the entire 2006 season but was inactive for every contest. He doesn't figure to see much playing time again this season unless he can find a role in new head coach Bobby Petrino's college-style offense.
