Player Outlook
Outside of leagues that reward points for return yards, Davis is unlikely to have an impact in redraft leagues in 2023 unless Keenan Allen and Josh Palmer both get hurt. In rookie-only drafts, Davis should not be drafted before Round 4. Even in that format, his most likely path to a long career is as a returner, not a full-time wide receiver. Still, a connection to Justin Herbert and Allen's age could be enough to keep Davis on Dynasty rosters until at least next September.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Hardly used as receiver

    Davis caught his only target for 18 yards in Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Chiefs. He also tallied three carries for 17 yards and recorded 69 kick-return yards. Despite all the injuries to Chargers wideouts, the 2023 fourth-round pick was merely a gadget option, as Davis had nearly as many receptions (15) as carries (14) in his pro debut. The speedy target might have been unceremoniously passed over on the depth chart by castoff receivers such as Alex Erickson, Keelan Doss and Jalen Guyton, but Davis did prove to be an effective return man, combining for 760 return yards to go along with one touchdown. Los Angeles' receiving corps could undergo a massive overhaul due to cap woes, which would leave Davis and fellow TCU target Quentin Johnston as one of the last few pass catchers standing entering the 2024 campaign.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Plays exclusively special teams

    Davis played all 12 of his snaps on special teams in Sunday's 24-7 loss to the Broncos and returned two kickoffs for 44 yards. For the first time in his 13 appearances this season, Davis failed to take a snap on offense, with the Chargers prioritizing all of Keenan Allen, Quentin Johnston, Alex Erickson and Jalen Guyton ahead of him at receiver. The Chargers will return Joshua Palmer (knee) from injured reserve for Thursday's game in Las Vegas, so Davis is set to drop down another spot on the depth chart. Davis should continue to remain active on game days through his role as the Chargers' top option on kickoff and punt returns.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Limited involvement against Packers

    Davis caught his lone target for minus-3 yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Packers. Davis operated as the Chargers' No. 4 wide receiver, playing just seven of the 65 offensive snaps Sunday. The rookie's utilization leaves much to be desired, yet he has proven to have the ability to make plays with his impressive speed. Nonetheless, Davis shouldn't be trusted for fantasy purposes when the Chargers host the Ravens in Week 12.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: First career punt return TD

    Davis did not record a yard on his lone reception in Monday's 27-6 win over the Jets, but he did return a 87-yard punt return to open the scoring in the first quarter. Davis only played offensive snaps as the Jets' offense barely put up a fight. The rookie did kick off the scoring for the Chargers on the second punt of the game, returning it 87 yards for a massive special teams touchdown. It's clear the electric speedster can be a gamechanger when he has the ball, but to this point he's hardly been utilized by the offense.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Draws two targets in win

    Davis caught his two lone targets for four yards Sunday in the Chargers' 30-13 win over the Bears. One week after having multiple running plays schemed for him, Davis wasn't unlocked in a contest that became uncompetitive quickly. With just nine offensive snaps Sunday and only 11 the week prior, it's hard to suggest the 23-year-old has much fantasy value save for deeper leagues.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Gets multiple carries in loss

    Davis carried the ball three times for 14 yards and also caught one of his two targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Chiefs. The Chargers ran a number of plays specifically for Davis, somewhat ironic given the team has failed to get 2023 first-round pick, Quentin Johnston, more involved in the gameplan. Davis, a fourth-round pick from this past draft class, has plenty of speed, but it's hard to imagine his current role expanding tremendously unless injuries strike multiple players ahead of him.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Barely plays Monday

    Davis went without a target while playing two of the Chargers' 73 snaps on offense in Monday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys. In the Chargers' previous game Week 4 versus the Raiders, Davis logged 12 snaps and recorded two catches for 16 yards, but he saw his already limited playing time take a hit coming out of the team's bye week. He finished fifth among Chargers receivers in snaps Monday, with practice-squad call-up Keelan Doss finishing ahead of him. Even with Mike Williams (knee) out for the season, Davis doesn't look as though he'll be much more than a depth option at receiver, though the fourth-round rookie out of TCU should maintain his role as the Chargers' top return man.
