The slotback has missed the last three games while dealing with an undisclosed ailment, but appears as though he will be able to suit up next weekend. There will be more updates on his status as Calgary's game nears.

November 2, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel (undisclosed) will not play Friday against Winnipeg.

McDaniel is off the depth chart for the third straight game while he continues to recover from an undisclosed injury he suffered in mid-October. The slotback has a few weeks to heal, as the Stampeders have already clinched a berth into the Western Finals on Nov 19.

October 27, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel (undisclosed) is officially inactive Saturday against the Eskimos.

Coach Dave Dickenson stated that it was unlikely McDaniel would play this weekend, and with his name absent from the team's depth chart, it was confirmed that the slotback will miss a second straight contest. In his place, Reggie Begelton is in line for some additional reps while Rory Kohlert could see a little more time on the field.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel (undisclosed) is unlikely to be active for the Saturday's game against the Eskimos, Danny Austin of the Calgary Sun reports.

McDaniel missed last weekend's game with an injury and seems to be too banged up to give it a go for the Week 19 battle with Edmonton. Coach Dave Dickenson said that McDaniel was out practicing Thursday, but "he's just not quite there yet."

October 18, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel was placed on the one-game injured list for Week 18 with an undisclosed injury.

McDaniel was banged up in last week's victory over the Tiger-Cats, and his injury will cost him at least this week's contest. His next opportunity to play will come in Week 19 against the Eskimos.

October 17, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel did not take part in Tuesday's practice, Danny Austin of the Calgary Sun reports.

It's not exactly clear what is ailing McDaniel, but Tuesday's absence leaves his status in question for Calgary's next game Friday against Saskatchewan. McDaniel's status for Week 18 figures to be ultimately determined later this week.

October 13, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel tallied six receptions for 87 yards in Friday's 28-25 win over the Tiger-Cats.

The veteran turned in a key 35-yard reception in the fourth quarter and posted his second strong receiving effort in the process. McDaniel at least five receptions in four of his last seven contests and his now just 140 yards shy of a third straight 1,000-yard campaign. He'll look to continue building toward that goal in Week 18 against the Roughriders.

September 30, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel posted four receptions for 104 yards in Friday's 59-11 win over the Alouettes.

McDaniel eclipsed the century mark for the first time since the opener while posting his best reception total since Week 12. The veteran has seen a downturn in production in terms of receptions in 2017, but his current YPC of 13.1 is his best since 2014. With four games remaining, McDaniel needs a manageable 227 yards to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the third consecutive campaign. He'll look to keep building towards that mark in a Week 17 tilt against the beatable Tiger-Cats secondary.

September 11, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel tallied five receptions for 56 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 25-22 win over the Eskimos.

The veteran brought in a five-yard scoring strike from Bo Levi Mitchell with 39 seconds remaining, sealing the hard-fought victory for the Stamps. McDaniel has at least five catches in four of the last five contests, although Saturday's touchdown reception was his first since Week 7. The 33-year-old's role in the Calgary passing attack is secure, making him a viable DFS option each week. He'll look to continue producing against the Lions in Week 13.

September 4, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught five passes for 54 yards in Monday's 39-18 win over Edmonton.

The nine-year CFL veteran hasn't topped 100 receiving yards since Week 1, but McDaniel has still been a steady presence for the Stamps, catching at least five passes in three of the last four games. He remains on pace for his third straight season with 80-plus catches and 1000-plus yards.

August 27, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught six passes for 84 yards in Saturday's 23-7 win over the Argos.

The veteran receiver continues to roll merrily along as Bo Levi Mitchell's top possession option, and McDaniel is now on pace for his third straight 80-catch, 1000-yard campaign.

August 19, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught three passes for 34 yards in Friday's 21-17 win over the Lions.

Calgary's normally potent passing attack has been sputtering a little in recent weeks, and as a result this was the second time in three games that McDaniel has been held below 40 receiving yards. The 33-year-old is currently on pace to fall just short of his third consecutive 1000-yard season, but it wouldn't take much improvement to get him back on track.

August 3, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught eight passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 41-24 win over the Argos.

The 33-year-old has topped 1,000 receiving yards in the three of the last four seasons as Calgary's No. 1 receiver, and McDaniel is well on his way to doing it again with 408 yards through seven games.

July 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel logged just two receptions but totaled 88 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-10 win over the Riders.

The veteran receiver hasn't seen the sheer volume of targets of a season ago with the emergence of teammate Kamar Jorden, but Saturday's effort did mark his second-highest yardage total of the season. McDaniel also recorded his first touchdown, a nifty 44-yard score in which he raced the final 13 yards to the end zone. The 33-year-old's numbers may be down thus far in 2017, but given his talent and role on a high-powered offense, he carries the upside to keep him fantasy relevant on a weekly basis.

July 14, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught seven passes for 68 yards in Friday's 30-23 loss to the Alouettes.

The 33-year-old's 10.6 yards per catch is a career low, suggesting he may have lost half a step, but McDaniel still has 23 catches for 243 yards through four games, keeping him on pace for his fourth 1,000-yard campaign in the last five seasons.

July 8, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught three passes for 46 yards in Friday's 29-10 win over the Blue Bombers.

The 33-year-old has been held in check the last two weeks following his 10-catch, 114-yard performance in Week 1, but the extra defensive attention McDaniel has received has merely opened things up for Kamar Jorden and other options in Calgary's dynamic offense. McDaniel has topped 80 catches and 1,000 yards in each of the last two seasons, and there's no reason to think he won't hit those marks again in 2017.

June 30, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel compiled 21 yards and a receiving two-point conversion on four receptions in Thursday's 43-39 win over the Redblacks.

After leading the Stamps' receiving corps in the Week 1 win against Ottawa, McDaniel took a step back Thursday and saw teammate Lemar Durant helm the attack. The veteran wideout may have been largely contained Thursday, but there's little doubt that he continues to serve as one of Bo Levi Mitchell's most potent and trusted weapons. He'll look to get back to his usual level of production when the Stamps travel to take on the Blue Bombers in Week 3.

June 23, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught 10 passes for 114 yards in Friday's 31-31 tie with the Redblacks.

There's no telling what might have happened in last year's Grey Cup had McDaniel not left the game early with a shoulder injury, but he's healthy to begin 2017 and took some early revenge on Ottawa with a big Week 1 performance. The 33-year-old has topped 1,000 yards in three of the last four seasons, and only another injury seems likely to stop him from making it four out of five.

June 9, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel (shoulder) has been able to practice during training camp without issue, according to the Calgary Herald.

McDaniel injured his shoulder early in the Stampeders' Grey Cup loss to the Redblacks, but the setback is no longer an issue for him. McDaniel is set to enter the season as Calgary's top receiver, but he will be playing in his age-33 season, so he will be challenged to repeat last year's totals of 83 receptions and 1,074 receiving yards.

February 13, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel (shoulder) re-signed with the Stampeders on a two-year contract Monday, the Calgary Herald reports.

McDaniel started 16 games for the Stampeders in 2016 and accounted for a team-leading 1,074 receiving yards across 83 receptions, the third 1,000-yard season of his career. His signing was one of the main priorities for Calgary this offseason and will likely put less pressure on the team to make a splash in free agency.

November 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel was injured in the first quarter, as the Stampeders trailed 10-7 with three quarters to go. He hauled in a 51-yard gain before coming up pointing to his shoulder. The team will likely update his status after the game.

November 21, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught four passes for 131 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-15 win over the Lions in the Western Final.

After setting a career high with 1074 yards during the regular season, good for 10th in the league, McDaniel has remained Bo Levi Mitchell's primary target during the playoffs. Expect him to be a significant part of Calgary's offense Sunday against Ottawa in the 104th Grey Cup.

November 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel (leg) will start at slotback in Sunday's Western Final matchup with the Lions.

October 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel suffered a leg injury in Week 17, according to Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun, and will not play in Friday's game against the Argonauts.

The extent of McDaniel's setback is not clear, but he was placed on the one-game injured list instead of the longer six-game option, so there is reason to believe he is not facing an extended absence. Kamar Jorden and Simon Charbonneau-Campeau will be the Stampeders' top two slotbacks in McDaniel's absence.

October 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel totaled 34 yards on three catches in Saturday's 36-17 win over the Ti-Cats.

The veteran slotback turned in his lowest reception and yardage totals since Week 12 against the Eskimos on an afternoon where DaVaris Daniels seized the spotlight. McDaniel is still on pace the surpass the career-best 1,047 yards receiving he managed in 2013.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel notched 102 yards and a touchdown on five receptions in Saturday's 48-23 victory over the Redblacks. He also contributed a two-point conversion reception and added eight yards on one rush.

The veteran slotback posted his first 100-yard performance since Week 8, and his first touchdown since Week 5. McDaniel's 64 receptions and 852 yards through 12 games keep him on pace to surpass his career bests in those respective categories (86, 1047) in what is his eighth CFL campaign. The 32-year-old has now tallied at least two catches in each game he's played in this season.

September 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught four passes for 67 yards in Monday's win over the Eskimos.

His numbers have taken a dip over the last few weeks as quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell works some other targets into the mix, but McDaniel's 56 catches for 706 yards still puts him among the league leaders on the season. Expect Mitchell to start looking his way more often once again soon enough.

August 20, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught a game-high 10 passes for 80 yards in Friday's win over the Lions.

Bo Levi Mitchell did a good job spreading the ball around Friday, but McDaniel remained his favorite target. He now has 50 catches for 606 yards through eight games, numbers which put him firmly among the CFL's leaders in those categories.

August 14, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught eight passes for 110 yards in Saturday's win over the Roughriders.

The Stamps played the 'Riders in consecutive weeks and amazingly McDaniel put up identical 8-110-0 lines in each game. He and quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell have shown good chemistry this season, making McDaniel a threat for a strong performance every time out.

August 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught eight passes for 110 yards in Thursday's win over the Roughriders.

After being held in check by the Lions last week, McDaniel bounced back with a season high in catches and his second 100-plus yard performance of the year. He's now well on pace to shatter his previous career high of 1047 receiving yards, set back in 2013.

July 22, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught seven passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's win over the Blue Bombers.

That's now three straight games in which McDaniel has gotten into the end zone and his 286 receiving yards leads the Stampeders on the season. As long as he can stay healthy, McDaniel should continue supplying plenty of fantasy value.

July 9, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught six passes for 70 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 26-26 tie with the Redblacks.

Through three games, McDaniel is tied for the team lead in receiving yards with Joe West (206) and leads Calgary with two receiving TDs. If he can stay healthy, McDaniel seems headed for another big season.

July 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

McDaniel caught seven passes for a game-high 116 yards and a touchdown in Friday's win over the Blue Bombers.

After a quiet Week 1, McDaniel erupted for big numbers as Bo Mitchell's primary target. The 32-year-old slotback has topped 1000 receiving yards in each of his last two full seasons for Calgary, and if he can stay healthy he seems easily poised for a third.
