Corey Davis was one of the biggest surprises in Fantasy in 2020, and he has an opportunity to emerge as a reliable No. 3 Fantasy WR as the Jets' No. 1 option. Davis was pretty much left for dead as a Fantasy option heading into 2020 -- the Titans didn't even pick up his fifth-year option before the season. So it was a surprise when he emerged as a pretty strong Robin to A.J. Brown's Batman in the Titans offense. The question now is whether he can be a No. 1 for the Jets, and whether the Jets offense will be good enough for it to matter. Davis is a nice target as a bench WR with some upside.
Davis (shoulder) participated in team drills during June minicamp, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports. Davis didn't miss much time after suffering a shoulder strain at the end of May. He should be a full go for the start of training camp, where he'll likely be the top perimeter target for rookie QB Zach Wilson. The Jets do have a deep group of wide receivers, with Davis joined by Denzel Mims, Jamison Crowder, Keelan Cole and rookie Elijah Moore.
Davis (shoulder) is taking part in the early drills during Tuesday's practice, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. Davis injured his shoulder during OTAs in late May and hadn't been spotted at practice since. It appears he's doing better at this point and is working with the first-team offense. It remains to be seen if his participation level will be full, but the fact that he's on the field at all suggests he should be ready for the start of training camp next month.
Davis injured his shoulder during Thursday's practice, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. The Jets believe it's only a minor shoulder strain, though they did send scans to Dr. James Andrews for further evaluation. Davis signed a three-year, $37.5 million contract in March, coming off career highs for receiving yards (984) and touchdowns (five) in his fourth and final season with the Titans. The Jets believe their new wideout will recover with rest, hopefully making it back for the beginning of training camp to start building chemistry with rookie QB Zach Wilson.
The Jets and Davis agreed to terms on a three-year, $37.5 million contract Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. As the first day of the legal tampering period has gone on, the wide receiver market is starting to be plucked, with Davis the newest player to find a new home. He's coming off a career season almost across the board after putting up 65 catches (on 92 targets) for 984 yards and five touchdowns. With 39 catches of 20-plus yards over the last three campaigns, Davis is set to take over the role of depth threat in the Jets offense from Breshad Perriman, who currently is an unrestricted free agent.
Davis and TE Jonnu Smith are aware the Titans don't plan to re-sign them, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports. This appears to be a more definitive version of a sentiment that's been building throughout the offseason. The Titans will build their offense around Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown, while Davis and Smith will search for new teams in free agency.
