Davis did not see a pass come his way during Sunday's win over the Chargers. Make it back-to-back crucial games to end the season during which Davis was not targeted. Davis fell out of favor after making some critical drops in Weeks 14 and 15. Davis probably has a better chance to rebound with Brock Osweiler at quarterback than Peyton Manning, as Manning and Davis had less than two weeks of practice together before Manning went down with an injury, limiting his time to build chemistry with the veteran tight end.
Davis did not see a pass come his way in Monday's win over the Bengals. Davis saw the field for just five offensive plays during Monday's game, according to Pro Football Focus, 21 fewer than his next lowest total during Brock Osweiler's tenure at quarterback. The Broncos struggled to maintain possession early on and then switched to a hurry-up attack that, as head coach Gary Kubiak explained, favored Owen Daniels and Virgil Green - tight ends more familiar with Denver's scheme. Having two tight ends who are better versed in the offense is another obstacle Davis will have to face when it comes to seeing targets down the stretch as two critical drops over the past two weeks has no doubt already diminished some of Osweiler's confidence in him.
Davis (concussion) caught seven of nine targets for a season-high 74 yards in Sunday's 15-12 loss to the Raiders. Davis was forced out of last Sunday's win over the Chargers, but cleared protocol this week, and came up with one of his best games of the year. He did have a disastrous drop late in the game on fourth down that would have gone for a monster gain, putting the Broncos in field goal range for the game-tying field goal. Next week, Davis and the Broncos will travel to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers.
Davis (concussion) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Raiders. As is fellow TE Owen Daniels, with Davis looking like a hit-or-miss fantasy play in Week 14, thanks to the time-share arrangement in play here.
Davis (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Davis was limited in practice both Thursday and Friday, as he continues to overcome a concussion. Given that careful situation, Davis' status is up in the air for Sunday, requiring attention to his progress prior to the Broncos' 4:05 ET kickoff.
