Davis tallied 96 tackles, two sacks, three PBUs, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 14 games in 2017.
Davis, plucked out of Florida in the first round of the 2017 draft, was slow to acclimate to the speed of the professional game. His main struggles came in pass coverage where he had trouble defending NFL-caliber tight ends. In fact, he was being taken off the field entirely in obvious pass situations by year's end. With that said, Davis finished as Pro Football Focus' 20th-highest graded linebacker against the run and earned positive marks for his pass-rush efforts as well. Furthermore, he showed obvious potential as the vocal leader of the defense and should benefit greatly from his first NFL offseason training program. IDP owners need to have Davis on their radar come draft season, as triple-digit tackles and multiple sacks seem to be firmly within his reach.
Davis logged nine tackles, one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 24-21 victory over the Buccaneers.
Davis has been losing playing time to Tahir Whitehead in recent weeks, as defensive coordinator Teryl Austin believes the rookie is struggling in pass coverage, per Kyle Meinke of MLive.com. With that said, Davis is still seeing 50-plus snaps on a regular basis and particularly made the most of his decreased role on Sunday by logging the second sack of his young career. Combined with him matching the season-high nine tackles he set in Week 1 -- while recording his first forced fumble as a pro -- this clearly represents Davis' best performance of the season, statistically speaking. The Florida product will look to continue his development in a Week 15 matchup with the Bears.
Davis recorded eight tackles (three solo) against the Ravens on Sunday.
Davis is averaging 6.4 tackles per game, but the rookie first-round pick rarely adds other stats. Still, he consistently plays a high snap count and should be considered a decent IDP asset in certain matchups.
Davis logged eight tackles during Monday's 30-17 victory over the Packers.
Davis bounced back from an unproductive showing last week against Pittsburgh and has now recorded eight tackles in three of his past four games. He hasn't been very active in the passing game, however, as his last and only sack came in Week 2 and he's only recorded one pass deflection all year. Not to mention, he also hasn't forced a fumble to date. Davis will either need to showcase increased upside in the tackle department or activity in those complimentary areas in order to join the elite tier of IDP linebackers.
Davis accrued eight tackles, including two for loss, and a defended pass in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Panthers.
Davis was on the field for 100 percent of the defensive snaps in his return from a two-game absence Sunday and looked exactly like the game-changing player he appeared to be prior to sustaining the concussion. The Florida product is now averaging over seven tackles per game while showing the aptitude to both penetrate opposing offensive lines and drop into coverage. If he can stay healthy going forward, his IDP stock should only continue to rise.
