RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Daniels might not pass the eyeball test at 6-feet tall, but by now he's one of the more respected interior linemen in the league. Despite a relatively small play count of 1,869 snaps over the last three years, Daniels has 113 tackles and 16 sacks. The Packers might need Daniels to play a career-high in snaps this year, however, with B.J. Raji taking a hiatus. If you take Daniels' numbers over the last three years and project them to 800 snaps, you get something in the 50-tackle, seven-sack range, which would make him a solid DL3 type.
Daniels was the Packers' best defensive lineman last year, starting all 16 games and racking up 5.5 sacks. He is not a big fantasy contributor, but he figures to again be the team's best defensive lineman in 2015.
Daniels pleasantly surprised as a second-year pro last season, ranking second on the Packers in sacks (6.5), while also making 23 tackles (17 solo). His versatility and pass rushing ability should earn him significant playing time once again this season, when he's projected to start at defensive end.
Daniels will be part of the Packers' defensive line rotation.
