Davis may see some work in Sunday's game against the Bills, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports. While it appears Davis may have finally worked his way back into the rotation, it's more out of necessity than by playing his way back. Charcandrick West (concussion) remains questionable for Sunday's contest, and him missing the contest would leave just Spencer Ware and Davis as the two options out of the backfield. Even if West misses the contest, Ware would likely work ahead of Davis, limiting any potential value. If West were to play, it wouldn't be surprising if Davis was inactive again Sunday.
Davis will be inactive for Sunday's game against Denver with Spencer Ware used as Charcandrick West's backup, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. It sounds like Davis will be a healthy scratch, but we'll have to wait for inactives to be announced before game time to be sure. Davis has just 12 carries combined over the last four games, so this may not be a huge surprise.
Davis rushed four times for nine yards during Sunday's 45-10 win over the Lions in London. Charcandrick West continues to dominate the touches for the Chiefs, as he rushed 20 times for 97 yards and a touchdown while adding 25 receiving yards on four receptions. Davis' fantasy value is very limited as long as West is healthy.
Davis had two rushing yards on one carry Sunday against the Steelers. Charcandrick West dominated the backfield touches, rushing 22 times for 110 yards and a touchdown while also catching two passes on five targets for 19 receiving yards. The Chiefs appear firmly committed to letting West lead the backfield, which leaves Davis with minimal fantasy value.
Davis carried the ball for 13 yards on five carries and snagged a 12-yard pass in Sunday's loss to Minnesota. Davis took a backseat to second-year back Charcandrick West in Jamaal Charles' first game out following a season-ending knee injury. Davis was Charles' primary backup in 2013 and 2014 and has managed to score 12 total touchdowns in a little over two seasons. His career yards-per-rush averaged of 3.39 may be contributing to West's first dibs at opportunities. The backfield situation in Kansas City will be one to monitor given their ball-control tendencies and it will be intersting to see whether Davis'experience and West's late-game fumble put Davis in the driver's seat come Week 7 against Pittsburgh.
