Chase Daniel signs a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Chargers

Former Detroit Lions QB Chase Daniel has reportedly signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Chargers, earning $1.5 million in guarantees from his previous contract with the Lions, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

The veteran journeyman will head to L.A. to back-up and mentor QB Justin Herbert in 2021, as the rookie displayed phenomenal skills despite an underwhelming supporting cast in 2020. Daniel only started in four games for Detroit last season, throwing for 264 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions during that span. The veteran quarterback will likely be off the fantasy radar barring any unforeseen injuries but is a capable back-up during times of crises within an organization, as he has proven throughout his 11-year career.

Chase Daniel report: Lions shopping veteran QB, per Schefter

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Detroit Lions are shopping veteran QB Chase Daniel.

Fantasy Impact

The Lions are rumored to be in contact with several teams about the possibility of trading their backup QB. Reports say that Daniel is viewed as the perfect mentor for a team with a young QB as Daniel himself was mentored by legendary QB Drew Brees. If the veteran QB is to be traded, it would save the Lions $2.3 million in cap space.

Chase Daniel comes up small in Week 16 blowout loss

Chase Daniel completed 13 of 18 pass attempts for 86 yards in the Lions' 47-7 loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Daniel played nearly the whole game but couldn't get anything going. Detroit's lone score came on a Jamal Agnew punt return. Daniel is likely to start Week 17 against Minnesota, but he won't be a recommended option for that one.

Chase Daniel closes out game for injured Stafford

Chase Daniel completed three of six pass attempts for 29 yards in the Lions’ 31-24 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Daniel came in late to fill in for Matt Stafford after the latter was forced to exit the game early. There's no word yet as to the severity of Stafford's injury, but if Daniel was forced into a starting role for Week 15 against Tennessee, all of Detroit's pass-catchers would take a hit in value.

Chase Daniel plays uninspired as fill-in

Chase Daniel completed eight of 13 pass attempts for 94 yards, one TD, and an INT in the Lions’ 34-20 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Matthew Stafford left the game early due to a concussion, and Daniel filled in with a lukewarm effort. If Stafford is forced to miss time moving forward, Daniel offers bland streaming appeal even in favorable matchups.
