Daniels posted two catches (on two targets) for 37 yards during Sunday’s 30-10 road victory versus the Jets.
Starting his fourth consecutive game, Daniels led Cardinals tight ends in offensive snap share, playing 67 percent to Dan Arnold’s 36 percent and Evan Baylis’ five percent. Sunday marked the second time Daniels made an impact in the box score, though, as tight ends aren’t heavily featured in an offense paced of DeAndre Hopkins and Kenyan Drake. As a result, Daniels doesn’t hold much sway in the fantasy realm.
Australia captain Meg Lanning vaulted to No. 1 in the ICC rankings for women’s ODI batters for a fifth time on the back of her 163-run tally in her side’s 3-0 whitewash of New Zealand that culminated in a record-equalling 21st ODI win in a row. Left-hand batter Rachael Haynes, the Player of the Series, advanced to a career-best 13th position while left-arm spinner Jess Jonassen retained the top spot in the bowlers’ list.
Lanning amassed 163 runs in the first two ODIs, including a series-clinching Player-of-the-Match unbeaten 101 in the second game, before a hamstring strain ruled her out of the third and final fixture on Wednesday. Her move up to No. 1 in the ODI batters’ rankings, displacing West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor, marks her return to the top spot for the first time since October 2018.

In an international career nearing its tenth year, Lanning, 28, has been the No. 1-ranked ODI batter for a total of 902 days since the first time she achieved the feat in November 2014. Last week she rose one spot to No. 5 on the T20I batters’ rankings after finishing as the second-highest run-scorer in Australia’s 2-1 series win against New Zealand.
Haynes, who led Australia in the final ODI and opened for the hosts, gained seven places after finishing as the leading run-scorer in the series with 222 runs, compiled through knocks of 44, 82 and 96.

Jonassen, who topped the ODI bowlers’ rankings for the first time in July 2017, took eight wickets in the series, including 4 for 36 in the second ODI. She has been No. 1 for 599 days
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had plenty of good seasons, but the numbers he’s putting up this year exceed anything he’s done before.
Rodgers has completed 98 of 139 passes for 1,214 yards, with 13 touchdowns and no interceptions.

That’s a completion percentage of 70.5 percent, which would be a career high. (His previous high was 68.3 percent in 2011.) He’s on pace for 4,856 yards, which would be a career high. (His previous high was 4,442 yards in 2018.) He’s on pace for 56 touchdowns, which would be a career high. (His previous high was 45 in 2011.) His zero interceptions would, of course, be an all-time best. (His previous fewest was two interceptions in 2018, which is the fewest in NFL history for a quarterback who started all 16 games in a season.)
With the Packers at 4-0 and Rodgers saying that even his down years would be a career year for most quarterbacks, he has every reason to crow about the way he’s playing this year.

Shenault caught five of six targets for 86 yards and rushed once for five yards in Sunday’s 33-25 loss to Cincinnati.
A large chunk of Shenault’s production came in the two-minute drill at the end of the first half, as he recorded three catches for 59 yards to set up a 20-yard field goal. He finished nine receiving yards shy of DJ Chark’s team-leading total, but Chark found the end zone twice while Shenault has now gone three weeks without a touchdown after scoring in his NFL debut. Shenault more than doubled his previous career high of 37 receiving yards, and he’ll look to build off this performance in Week 5 against the win-less Texans.
England spin-bowling allrounder Sarah Glenn, Player of the Series in England’s 5-0 whitewash of West Indies, has broken into the top ten of the ICC women’s T20I rankings for bowlers, while Australia captain Meg Lanning rose one spot to No. 5 on the batters’ rankings after finishing as the second-highest run-scorer in Australia’s 2-1 series win against New Zealand.
Twenty-one-year-old wristspinner Glenn, who made her international debut last year, picked up a chart-topping seven wickets against West Indies, gaining 12 slots to attain a career-best ninth position.
Australia opener Beth Mooney, England left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone, and New Zealand captain Sophie Devine, who were all in action in the two series, retained the top spots in the T20I rankings for the batters, bowlers and allrounders respectively. Meanwhile, even though she sat out the entire T20I series, No. 3-ranked Ellyse Perry’s position remained unchanged on the allrounders’ list.

Australia batting allrounder Ashleigh Gardner advanced seven places to a career best-equalling 18th position among batters thanks to a series-topping 90 runs, 19 more than Lanning, that also saw her claim the Player of the Series award. Legspinner Georgia Wareham, who took five wickets against New Zealand in three T20Is, moved five spots up to reach a career best-equalling 10th position while left-arm spinner Sophie Molineux (up two places to 13th) and seam bowler Delissa Kimmince (up eight places to 22nd) also made notable gains.
Amelia Kerr, the 19-year-old legspinning allrounder whose all-round contribution helped New Zealand snare a final-over win in the third and final T20I on Wednesday, retained the fourth position among bowlers, and is the only New Zealander in the top ten of the bowling charts. Meanwhile, Natalie Sciver remains the only England batter in the top
