    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Finishes with quiet Sunday, season

    Davis was limited to six special teams snaps in Sunday's regular season finale against the Raiders. A once rising backup, Davis dropped like a rock on the Chiefs depth chart this season, losing out on snaps to the likes of Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware following the season-ending injury to star running back Jamaal Charles in Week 5. While he's still under contract with the Chiefs through the 2016 campaign, Davis finished 2015 with just 28 caries for 72 yards and two grabs for 24 yards, and doesn't appear to be a large part of the team's plan for next season.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Doesn't play Sunday

    Davis dressed for Sunday's game gainst the Browns, but didn't take the field. Davis remains third on the totem pole for snaps behind Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware, but the situation heading into Week 17 remains a bit unclear. With the Chiefs locked into the playoffs, there's a chance they will elect to rest starters at some point, potentially allowing Davis to see the field. However, the team will still be in contention to win the division, so it's also possible they roll with the starters, which would likely again result in little-to-no snaps for Davis. Either way, it seems as though Davis would see carries in relief if he plays at all, limiting his potential value in the final week of the regular season.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Sees minor uptick in playing time

    Davis toted the ball five times for 14 yards in Sunday's game against the Ravens. Dvais saw nine snaps in Sunday's contest, his largest total in a while. However, the added looks came with Spencer Ware sidelined due to a rib injury, and he was still vastly out-touched by starter Charcandrick West. It appears the only way the former backup to Jamaal Charles will see consistent looks now would be if both West and Ware were to get injured now. The once-promising handcuff has certainly plummeted in value, and shouldn't be considered in fantasy leagues with Ware likely returning in Week 16.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Get one carry

    Davis carried the ball one time for six yards against the Chargers on Sunday. Davis continues to see very limited work, sitting behind both Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware on the Chiefs depth chart. He saw just two snaps in Sunday's game even though Ware left for part of the game due to a rib contusion. It appears Kansas City has nearly given up on him altogether, as he hasn't really seen any opportunities even in the absence of star running back Jamaal Charles. If Ware were to miss next Sunday's game against the Ravens, it would provide a sliver of hope that Davis could receive some added touches, but it likely won't be enough to make him a viable fantasy option.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: One touch in Sunday's win

    Davis rushed once for one yard Sunday against the Bills. Davis was active for the game because Charcandrick West was unable to play due to his hamstring injury, but Spencer Ware dominated the backfield touches, rushing 19 times for 114 yards and a touchdown and catching three passes. As long as Ware and/or West are healthy, it doesn't look like Davis will get nearly enough touches to make him a viable fantasy option.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Back in uniform Sunday

    Davis is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills. After being a healthy scratch the Chiefs' last two games, Davis is slated to re-join the team's backfield mix, but he's a speculative play in Week 12, given that Spencer Ware is in line to start in place of the injured Charcandrick West.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Could see some work Sunday

    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.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Not expected to play

    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.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: Four carries in 35-point win

    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.

    Chiefs' Knile Davis: One touch against Steelers

    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.
