With Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) listed as questionable, Davis could take on an expanded role Sunday against Oakland. Reed seems to be gearing up to play through the pain, but he'll likely come down to a game-time decision, which leaves fantasy owners in a precarious spot due to the Redskins' 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff. Jared Cook is a solid fallback option if Reed can't go, but the Oakland tight end is already owned in many leagues. Davis is freely available in the vast majority of formats, and he was uber-efficient with his 59 targets last season, hauling in 44 for 583 yards (5.9 YPT) and two scores. Davis only has one catch this season, but he averaged 3.5 receptions for 47 yards in the four games Reed missed last year.
Davis recorded one reception for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams. Davis has been nonexistent through the first two games of the season, but with Jordan Reed (chest) currently day-to-day, the veteran tight end could be in for an uptick in production this week. Look for more updates to come once the Redskins release their practice reports later on in the week.
Davis failed to haul in his only target in Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Eagles. With Jordan Reed (toe) back in the fold this season, it's expected Davis' targets will drop. Still, the veteran tight end received 27 offensive snaps (43 percent) on the day. Given Reed's lingering toe injury, Davis could be bumped up to first-string tight end at a moment's notice, although Reed didn't appear to be visibly slowed down Sunday.
Davis caught two passes for 21 yards in Sunday's preseason win over the Bengals. Davis took a back seat Sunday, as Jordan Reed (toe) returned to the starting role. However, the veteran still managed to snag two balls from Kirk Cousins during his 21 offensive reps. Davis will likely see a decrease in action with the first-team offense, but there's still a good chance he'll be an integral part of the unit -- especially over the next few weeks as Reed shakes off the rust from not having played all preseason.
Davis caught two of four targets for 49 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Packers. Davis, who received the start with Jordan Reed (toe) out of action, highlighted his night with a 43-yard catch-and-run that set up a touchdown just before halftime. The veteran still seems to be a dangerous receiving threat entering his 12th season in the league and could possibly attain fantasy relevance in 2017 if Reed were to miss time.
