Davis caught five of seven targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts. Davis led the Titans in targets, receptions and receiving yards, but the passing offense was so anemic that it still resulted in a sub-par line. The 23-year-old has displayed WR1 skills at times, but his value will always be capped by a run-heavy offensive gameplan and inconsistent quarterback play, regardless of whether it is Marcus Mariota or Blaine Gabbert under center.
Davis (hamstring) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game against the Colts. Davis has tended to hamstring injuries for stretches in both of his two pro seasons, but despite being limited Thursday and Friday this week, he's set to play in the regular-season finale. In two prior matchups with the Colts, he combined for six catches (on eight targets) for 69 yards and no touchdowns.
Davis (hamstring) was limited at practice Thursday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. Davis was not listed on the Titans' injury report Wednesday, so his addition to it Thursday makes the wideout's status worth monitoring leading up to Sunday night's game against the Colts, a matchup that will determine Tennessee's postseason fate.
Davis caught three passes (five targets) for 45 yards and also rushed once for one yard in Saturday's 25-16 win over the Redskins. It was another quiet fantasy day from Davis, who hasn't surpassed 50 receiving yards or caught a touchdown since Week 13. A big part of his downturn in production has been the team's focus on getting Derrick Henry going on the ground. That strategy has resulted in four consecutive wins, saving Tennessee's season, so don't expect the run-heavy gameplan to change against the Colts in Week 17. Davis is best left as a deep-league option for the final week of the regular season.
Davis hauled in three of his six targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 17-0 win over the Giants. Davis led the team in targets, but he was victim of the team skewing heavily towards the run game while playing in poor weather conditions. However, his inability to hit big plays has extended beyond subpar weather conditions, as he has just one catch for more than 30 yards across the last 10 games. That leaves Davis as a touchdown-dependent flex option heading into a Week 16 matchup versus the Redskins.
