Austin Davis eliminates mistakes in Week 7 win
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rams quarterback Austin Davis, who had committed five turnovers in his three previous games, took care of the ball and was highly efficient in the Week 7 win over the Seahawks. Davis completed 18 of 21 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns with no turnovers.

Davis completed a career-high 85.7 percent of his throws, finding running back Benny Cunningham for a 5-yard touchdown in the first quarter and tight end Lance Kendricks for a 4-yard score in the fourth.

Austin Davis throws another pick-six in MNF loss
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Monday Night Football was a tale of two halves for Rams quarterback Austin Davis. He hit 11 of 14 throws for 137 yards and a touchdown in the first half, then looked lost after halftime.

Davis finished 21 of 42 for 236 yards with one score and one interception. With the Rams going for a tying touchdown in the final minute, Davis threw late and cornerback Dontae Johnson returned the pass 20 yards for a touchdown. It was Davis' second pick-six in the last three games.

Davis took a big step back after recording two straight games with 300-plus passing yards and three touchdowns. He was sacked five times and appeared skittish in the pocket.

Now not the time to start Austin Davis
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

It's not exactly a Kurt Warner sequel, but the Rams may have found a keeper in Austin Davis, who only came about the job because of a season-ending injury to Sam Bradford. He's thrown for more than 300 yards and three touchdowns in back-to-back games and looked good doing it.

But those were against Dallas, one of last year's worst teams against the pass, and Philadelphia, one of this year's. This week, the Rams host the 49ers, who are on the other end of the spectrum. Not only are they fourth against the pass, allowing 205.6 yards per game, but they've allowed the third-fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks (tying with the Patriots and Packers).

Some of the quarterbacks they've stifled include Tony Romo and Nick Foles. As good as Davis has been, he's not quite as good as them.

Which doesn't mean you can't add him off waivers. If you need a backup quarterback, he should be a good one. But this week isn't the time to get cute with him.

Austin Davis, Carson Palmer the best of a bad waiver-wire crop
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Jamey Eisenberg isn't thrilled about the crop of quarterbacks available for pickup ahead of Week 6, as he notes in his Waiver-Wire column Tuesday.

Eisenberg considers Rams quarterback Austin Davis the best of the bunch for Week 6's matchup against the 49ers, coming off consecutive three-touchdown, 300-yard games. It is not a great matchup for Davis, considering the 49ers have allowed just 20 Fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks over the last two games, but Davis is playing well enough that he may be able to overcome that.

If you don't need a quarterback too badly for this week, Carson Palmer remains a fine long-term option, and is still available in 35 percent of leagues. Palmer might still be forced to sit out Week 6 as he continues to deal with a shoulder nerve issue, but the team appears optimistic about his chances for returning before long.

Austin Davis does it again
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Rams quarterback Austin Davis showed his performance in Week 3 was no fluke, as he tossed three more touchdowns in Week 5 against the Eagles.

Davis lit into a subpar Eagles pass defense, finishing with 32 Fantasy points on 375 passing yards and three touchdowns. This coming after he earned the starting job with another three-touchdown performance against the Cowboys. And, lest you write it off as Davis just taking advantage of poor defenses, only one quarterback has bested his Fantasy point total against the Eagles, while his game against the Cowboys remains the best so far.

Davis might be a flash in the pan, but it is hard to write off these kinds of performances coming on consecutive games. We'll get a real idea of how well Davis can play in Week 6, with the 49ers on the schedule; if he can produce against San Francisco, there might be something here.
