Saints' Demario Davis: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had eight total tackles (five solo) in Sunday's divisional-round playoff win over the Eagles.

Davis, who finished the regular season with a team-high 110 total tackles in all 16 games, was a key contributor to a Saints defense that held the Eagles offense scoreless over the final three quarters. Tying a career high with five sacks this season, Davis has proven to be worth every penny of the three-year, $24 million contract he signed with the Saints last offseason.

Saints' Demario Davis: Recovers game-clinching fumble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis tallied three tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery during Sunday's victory over the Steelers.

Davis made a couple of key plays Sunday, but none were as important as the game-sealing fumble recovery he opportunistically stumbled upon during the contest's closing minutes. While his tackle total was nothing to write home about, Davis entered the game averaging 7.4 tackles per contest in 2018, so he should rebound in that column during the Saints' regular-season finale against a Panthers team that will likely be reliant on the run game without starting quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) under center.

Saints' Demario Davis: Adds to sack total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had eight tackles (four solo) and a sack in Monday's 12-9 win over the Panthers.

Davis also added two pass breakups as the Saints were able to stifle the Panthers offense throughout the evening. The 29-year-old leads the team with 103 tackles (70 solo), and also has four sacks and two forced fumbles through 14 games.

Saints' Demario Davis: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis notched eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's win against the Buccaneers.

Davis again led the Saints in tackles, and with 95 total tackles this season, he remains an excellent option in most IDP leagues.

Saints' Demario Davis: Reaches double-digit tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had 11 tackles (five solo) in Thursday's 13-10 loss to the Cowboys.

It's the second time this season Davis has reached double-digit tackles, and he tied his season high Thursday. The 29-year-old has 87 tackles (59 solo) and two forced fumbles through 12 games, and he's recorded less than five tackles in only one game thus far.

Saints' Demario Davis: Strong performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis recorded six tackles (five solo), one sack and one fumble recovery during Thursday's 31-17 win over the Falcons.

Davis played a key role in holding Atlanta's offense to only 17 points Thanksgiving Day, and he made his presence known during all phases of the game. The veteran should remain a reliable IDP option against the Cowboys in Week 13.

Saints' Demario Davis: Quiet in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis made three tackles (all solo), including two tackles for losses, in Sunday's win against the Eagles.

It was a quiet week for Davis, as the Eagles ran only 51 offensive plays and the Saints let some of their reserves get in on the action in a blowout victory. Davis, the team's leading tackler, should remain a quality IDP option in the upcoming Thanksgiving Day tilt against the Falcons.

Saints' Demario Davis: Ties for team lead in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis made five tackles (three solo) in Sunday's win against the Bengals.

Another week, another solid stat line for the Saints' starting middle linebacker. While Davis has not produced eye-popping numbers in his first year in New Orleans, he continues to be a dependable source of tackles for IDP owners.

Saints' Demario Davis: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis made seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's win against the Rams.

Davis again led the Saints in tackles, and as the starting middle linebacker in New Orleans, he should continue to be an excellent source of stops in most IDP leagues.

Saints' Demario Davis: Six tackles in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis made six tackles (five solo) in Sunday night's win against the Vikings.

Davis played 67 of the Saints' 73 defensive snaps, as he continues to start at middle linebacker in the team's base 4-3 defense. While he probably won't top last season's 135 total tackles, Davis remains a quality option in most IDP leagues, and his 55 total tackles through seven games comfortably leads the team.

Saints' Demario Davis: Six tackles in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis made six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's win against the Ravens.

Davis played 47 of the Saints' 68 offensive snaps in Baltimore, and his 49 total tackles this season easily lead the Saints. While he's not playing every snap like he did last year with the Jets, Davis remains a high-end producer and should continue to be a quality starting option in most IDP leagues.

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 Davis isn't likely to rack up many quarterback takedowns, the Saints' starting middle linebacker has proven to be an excellent source of tackles, as he has 37 total stops through four games. The Saints are on bye in Week 5 before hosting the Redskins in Week 6.

Saints' Demario Davis: Returns to full-time role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis made eight tackles (five solo) in Sunday's win against the Falcons.

A week after strangely having his playing time reduced, Davis, the Saints' starting middle linebacker, played every snap in Atlanta. An iron man who did not miss a single snap in 2017, Davis leads the Saints with 25 total tackles through three games. He remains a high-end option in most IDP leagues.

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 (five solo), including one for loss, 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.

Jets' Demario Davis: Posts career-high tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had a career-high 135 tackles and five sacks during the 2017 season.

Coming off back-to-back seasons with fewer than 100 tackles, Davis beat his previous season best by 19 while also adding 1.5 more sacks than his best effort before this past year. He is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and he will surely be one of the Jets' top priorities.

Jets' Demario Davis: Leads Jets in tackles in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had 13 tackles (10 solo) and a half-sack in Sunday's blowout loss to the Broncos.

The 10 solo tackles represent the second time this season Davis has reached double-digit tackles by himself. The 28-year-old now has 110 tackles (81 solo) and five sacks in 13 games this season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had 10 tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Panthers.

Davis once again played every defensive snap and reached double-digit tackles for the third time this season. The 28-year-old has been near the top of the league in tackles all season, compiling 92 stops (67 solo) through 11 games.
