2022 Fantasy Outlook
There has been a lot of upheaval at LSU, with Brian Kelly bolting Notre Dame while also picking up a new accent. The quarterback battle under Kelly should be particularly interesting, as Myles Brennan, Garrett Nussmeier and the Arizona State transfer Daniels will vie for the starting spot under center. Kelly convinced Brennan not to transfer, only to pluck Daniels from the transfer portal and deem no starting position set in stone. Daniels possesses dual-threat ability, having passed for 2,340 yards and 10 touchdowns last season while also rushing for 710 yards and six more scores on the ground. This versatility could put Daniels in the driver’s seat despite the lack of time and practice with the program, along with Kelly’s clear lack of allegiance to Brennan. Read Past Outlooks
Strains back Saturday
QBLSU
Back
September 24, 2022
LSU coach Brian Kelly said that Daniels strained his lower back during Saturday's 38-0 win over New Mexico, Wilson Alexander of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
ANALYSIS
Daniels initially appeared to suffer a head injury after being tackled hard to the ground Saturday, but he now seems to be dealing with a minor lower back strain according to Kelly. The Tigers' head coach added that the junior could have returned, but that it was unnecessary given wide scoring margin by that point of the game. Daniels' next opportunity to play will come on the road against Auburn in Week 5; otherwise, freshman Garrett Nussmeier will step in under center for LSU.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
It’s not easing being a starting quarterback as a true freshman, but don’t tell that to Daniels. Sure, maybe he got overshadowed by Sam Howell at North Carolina, but the Sun Devils have no complaints about Daniels’ play. While they didn’t really take the reins off him, it’s impressive how well Daniels protected the ball given his limited experiences. He may have only thrown 17 passing touchdowns, but he was also only picked off twice. Having a year of experience under his belt will definitely help him, but will he miss having Brandon Aiyuk around as a safety valve? Still, Daniels will be expected to cross the 20-touchdown platform as a sophomore, or risk being considered a disappointment.
