Davis, who hauled in two of his three targets for 20 yards in Week 17's loss to the Giants, ended the season with 43 receptions for 648 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games. When he joined the Redskins two years ago, Davis was an afterthought for many. However, the veteran tight end has found resurgence in Washington, posting 87 receptions for 1,231 yards and five touchdowns over the past two seasons. Davis turns 34 later this month, so retirement questions come with the territory, but there's a good chance he returns for another go around in 2018 given the three-year extension he inked with the team back in March. Davis was able to maintain fantasy relevance throughout the season with Jordan Reed sidelined for 10 games -- a trend that could continue next year given Reed's injury history.
Davis caught two of three targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-11 win over the Broncos. Davis has seen his production tail off since registering at least 55 receiving yards seven times in an eight-game stretch earlier this season, but Jordan Reed's (hamstring) presence on injured reserve leaves him as the clear top option at tight end in Washington. At a position with few standout performers, Davis has done enough to maintain a roster spot in most settings and has aided owners with touchdowns in two of the last three weeks. Davis could be an appealing target in both season-long matchups and DFS settings in Week 17 against a Giants team that has been burned by tight ends throughout the campaign and will be missing a key cog in the secondary in Landon Collins (forearm).
Davis recorded two receptions for 18 yards but fumbled once in Sunday's 20-15 win over the Cardinals. Even without Jordan Reed (hamstring) on the field, Davis has struggled to make ends meet the last few weeks, recording six receptions for 59 yards over the past four games. To put that into perspective, Davis managed over 59 receiving yards in all but one contest from Week 4 through Week 11. Given the current slump, the veteran doesn't seem like an ideal fantasy option next Sunday against the Broncos, one of the league's best passing defenses.
Davis brought in two of seven targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Chargers. The veteran tight end's lackluster stretch continues, as he's now posted just four receptions for 41 yards and Sunday's touchdown over the last three games. The score did help salvage his day somewhat from a fantasy perspective, but Davis has generally struggled to maintain strong production after posting 16 receptions for 215 yards in Weeks 9 through 11. With Jordan Reed (hamstring) yet to even resume practicing, Davis will likely have a chance to improve his production in a Week 15 battle against the Cardinals.
Davis hauled in both of his targets for 15 yards in Thursday's loss to the Cowboys. Davis hasn't found the end zone since Week 3 and hasn't had over three receptions in a contest in three weeks. Should Jordan Reed (hamstring) return this week, Davis would likely see a drop in offensive reps, making him a less than ideal fantasy option for Week 14.
