Daniel Fells TE NYG 11 Days

Fells saw eight offensive snaps Monday night.

It looks like Larry Donnell's job at this point, and Fells is more likely to see work as a blocker in any event.

Fells (knee) returned to practice Tuesday, the New York Daily News reports.

Fell sprained his knee during the Giants' opening preseason game, causing him to miss time until now. However, given the team's largely underwhelming crop of tight ends, Fells hasn't lost much ground to Larry Donnell to become the Giants' No. 1 option at the position this season.

Daniel Fells has been operating as the Giants' starting tight end through the first two days of training camp.

Fells is the most experience tight end in camp, as he's made 30 starts in 71 career appearances. However, he was out of the league last season and will turn 31 in September. The Giants may just be giving him the nod early on due to his experience, but it's something worth monitoring. Adrien Robinson has been tabbed the favorite to start at tight end all offseason. He ballooned up close to 290 pounds and reported to camp at 276. Whoever ends up manning tight end -- our money is still on Robinson -- won't be a recommended fantasy option.

Giants signed TE Daniel Fells, WR Preston Parker, LB Spencer Adkins, OL Troy Kropog, and K/P Brandon McManus to reserve/future contracts.

Fells spent the 2013 season on the street after he was part of the Patriots' final cuts. He's appeared in 71 career games, making 92 catches for 1,086 yards and eight scores. Parker caught 40 passes and three touchdowns for the 2011 Bucs.

Free agent TE Daniel Fells is visiting the Seahawks.

It's Fells' first known visit since he was cut loose by the Patriots. The Boston Globe reported earlier Monday that Fells suffered a concussion in the preseason. He'd just be a depth signing for the Seahawks.

Patriots released TE Daniel Fells.

Fells was going into the second season of a three-year, $5.25 million deal. The move clears $1.25 million in cap space. Reading the tea leaves rarely gets you far with the Patriots, but the move suggests they're optimistic about Rob Gronkowski's health, and that Jake Ballard has earned a roster spot. Four weeks shy of his 30th birthday, Fells has just 23 catches since the end of the 2010 season.

The Boston Globe suggests Patriots TEs Daniel Fells and Jake Ballard are vying for one roster spot.

Zach Sudfeld is locked in, and Rob Gronkowski obviously is too if he avoids PUP to open the season. Michael Hoomanawanui is playing H-back. Fells opened camp receiving lots of first-team reps, but Ballard has one-upped him as an in-line blocker. Fells is owed $1.25 million, while Ballard only costs $480,000.

With Rob Gronkowski (back) on active/PUP, the Boston Globe considers Daniel Fells the Patriots' No. 1 tight end "at this point" in camp.

Jake Ballard and rookie Zach Sudfeld are competing to for the second spot, while Michael Hoomanawanui is "working mostly at H-back." If Gronkowski misses regular season time -- an increasingly likely scenario -- the Pats may open the season without a single fantasy-viable tight end. Ballard's knees are balky. Fells is a journeyman. And Sudfeld is an undrafted rookie.

ESPN Boston gives Patriots TE Daniel Fells a 70 percent chance of keeping his roster spot.

Fells was considered a candidate for release earlier this offseason, but as you may have heard, things have changed for the Patriots at tight end. Fells' $1.25 million salary is working against him, however, while his fate could depend on how Jake Ballard and UDFA Zach Sudfeld look in camp. Either way, Fells won't make a fantasy impact this season.
