Saints' Demario Davis: Two sacks in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had 11 tackles (nine solo) and two sacks in Sunday's win against the Giants.

Davis' career high is five sacks, achieved last season with the Jets, so Sunday's performance was a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners. While owners probably should not expect Davis to rack up sacks, the Saints' starting middle linebacker has proven to be an excellent source of tackles, as he has 37 total tackles through four games. The Saints are on bye in Week 5 before hosting the Redskins in Week 6.

Saints' Demario Davis: Playing time reduced
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis made nine tackles and forced a fumble in Sunday's win against the Browns.

In 2017, Davis did not miss a single snap, racking up 135 tackles and five sacks in 16 games with the Jets. After signing in New Orleans this offseason, Davis picked up right where he left off, playing every snap in the season opener and registering eight tackles. In Week 2, however, Davis played only 42 of the Saints' 62 defensive snaps, though he still managed another nine tackles and a forced fumble. The reduction in playing time is strange but there have been no reports of injury, so it's probably best to ignore it as an outlier given Davis' outstanding pedigree. The Saints' starting middle linebacker should remain an IDP force.

Saints' Demario Davis: Eight tackles in Saints debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis totaled eight tackles in the Saints 48-40 loss to the Buccaneers in Week 1.

Davis was a big signing for the Saints this season, joining the team on a three-year deal. The defense struggled against the Ryan Fitzpatrick led Buccaneers offense, but Davis' performance was a rare positive. Davis and the rest of the unit will look to bounce back in Week 2 against the Browns.

Saints' Demario Davis: Listed as starting weakside linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is listed as the starting weakside linebacker on the Saints' first unofficial depth chart, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Davis took over as the Jets' starting middle linebacker in 2017 and easily turned in the best statistical season of his career, logging 135 tackles, five sacks and one pass breakup across 16 games while not missing a single defensive snap. It therefore comes as a bit of a surprise that the Saints would move him outside, with Manti Te'o starting at middle linebacker. While it's unwise to put too much stock into unofficial depth charts -- particularly this early in training camp -- Davis' production could take a slight hit if he does indeed remain outside.

Saints' Demario Davis: Heading to NOLA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is slated to sign a three-year, $24 million contract with the Saints, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Davis took over at middle linebacker for the Jets last season and easily turned in his best statistical season as a pro, logging 135 tackles, five sacks and one pass breakup over 16 games -- while not missing a single snap. In fact, the Arkansas State product hasn't missed a game since joining the league as a third-round draft pick in 2012 and is regarded as one of the most durable players in the NFL. It isn't clear where he'll slot in within the Saints' linebacking corps, but he could be quite the IDP asset if he can secure a starting role.
