Danny Shelton released by Kansas City Tuesday

The Kansas City Chiefs released Danny Shelton Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Shelton signed a one-year contract with Kansas City on August 15th. The move will clear $1.12M of cap space for the Chiefs. Shelton is an eight-year veteran who will likely get another opportunity elsewhere.

Danny Shelton signs 1-year deal with Chiefs

Defensive tackle Danny Shelton has signed a 1-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Shelton brings a run-stuffing presence to a Chiefs' defense that finished the 2021 season ranked 21st in rushing yards allowed. The veteran DT likely won't start but could find himself on the back end of the team's interior defensive line rotation. Shelton is a former first-round pick of the Browns and has also spent time with the Patriots, Lions, and most recently the Giants.

Danny Shelton signs one-year deal with the New York Giants

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Giants have signed DT Danny Shelton to a one-year contract.

Fantasy Impact

The details of the one-year contract have not come out yet, but this move fills a need for the Giants especially after the loss of DT Dalvin Tomlinson in free agency. Shelton, 27-years old, spent 2020 with the Lions where he started 12 games and totaled 37 tackles and a sack. Head coach Joe Judge spent time with Shelton during his his time in New England and will now be reunited with the former 2015, first round pick.

Danny Shelton is signing with the Lions

Defesnive tackle Danny Shelton and the Lions have come to terms for a 2-year/$8M contract.

Fantasy Impact

Shelton was selected as the 12th overall pick out of Washington in 2015 by the Cleveland Browns. He spent three years there, the last two in New England, and will start 2020 in Detroit. At only 26 years old, Shelton has already won a Super Bowl and become a prominent nose tackle in the league. He only has 4.5 sacks throughout his five years in the league, but that's because he primarily plays on running downs. He holds little fantasy value but will be a great addition to the Lions' run defense.

Danny Shelton gets his third sack of the year

Danny Shelton posted six solo tackles, one assisted tackle, one sack, one QB hit, and a forced fumble, as the Patriots edged the Eagles, 17-10.

Fantasy Impact

Shelton's strip-sack in the second quarter was a crucial play that led to points in a game where scoring came at a premium. Shelton is just the latest Pats defender to have a fantastic game, though he doesn't carry a lot of value in fantasy. He and New England will be tasked with limiting an efficient Dallas offense next week.
