Coach Anthony Lynn mentioned Davis as a possible replacement for Tyrell Williams (Raiders), Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Lynn also mentioned Dylan Cantrell and Travis Benjamin, the latter of whom may ultimately be a cap casualty. Davis has a decent chance to stick on the 53-man roster for another season, but he's a long shot for the No. 3 wideout job after logging 74 snaps on offense and 173 on special teams in 2018. The Chargers would be wise to bring in more competition via the upcoming draft.
Davis played only 74 offensive snaps in 2018 and was targeted once in the passing game, but played a heavy role on special teams. The 27-year-old seems likely to serve in a similar role heading into the 2019 season.
Davis had made the Chargers roster the previous two seasons so it doesn't come as much of a surprise to see the 26-year-old on the team once again. Davis will act as depth at the wide receiver position, but with a plethora of players above him on the depth chart, he's unlikely to draw much fantasy consideration.
Davis caught four of his six targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-17 Week 1 preseason loss to the Cardinals.
Davis was the star of Saturday's contest, coming down with an acrobatic catch in the third quarter to score the team's first touchdown. It's unlikely the 26-year-old receiver will vault any higher than his fifth place standing on the depth chart, which the team posted on Tuesday, even with a fantastic preseason, but another outing like that could guarantee he'll find his way onto the roster for a third consecutive season.
