Davis tallied seven tackles, one sack and one pass breakup during Sunday's victory over Green Bay.
Davis played a good game, but all the linebacker will likely remember is dropping an embarrassingly inaccurate throw from Packers backup quarterback DeShone Kizer that hit Davis right in the belly. Despite ending the season with a bad taste in his mouth, Davis still has plenty of things to feel good about given the significant improvement he's shown from his rookie year. Not only has the Florida product become a regular in pass-rush packages, but Davis logged 100 percent of the defensive snaps in 13 of 16 games and came ever closer to reaching the century mark with 99 combined tackles after recording 96 in 2017. Still on his rookie contract for a couple more seasons, Davis will return in 2019 as an up-and-coming IDP prospect who could be on the verge of a big statistical season as the centerpiece of the Lions defense.
Davis tallied eight tackles, one sack. and one pass breakup during Sunday's victory over the Cardinals.
Davis played a great game Sunday, most memorably making a number of hard hits but also reacting fast to a number of plays in run defense. While he's been an inconsistent IDP option this season, Davis has the upside to make him worthy of fantasy consideration in any given week. The 2017 first-rounder could particularly be a nice play this Sunday against a Bills team that has attempted the sixth-most running plays and sixth-least passing plays, and could be without stud tailback LeSean McCoy (hamstring).
Davis had three tackles (one solo) and a fumble recovery in Thursday's loss to the Bears.
Davis played all 58 defensive snaps but still had a quiet performance Thursday, as he didn't record a tackle in the first half. The Lions have a rough matchup against the Rams next week, while Davis is averaging just four tackles over the last four games.
Davis recorded six tackles and a sack during Sunday's 20-19 victory over Carolina.
Davis made a number of big plays that aided the Lions in toppling the explosive Panthers offense, and none was bigger than the third-down sack he had on Cam Newton that forced an ultimately unsuccessful field-goal try. On pace for over 100 tackles and six sacks with six games left to go, Davis will look to continue his productive ways when the Lions host a surging Bears team on Thanksgiving Day.
Davis followed an absence at practice Wednesday with back-to-back limited showings to wrap up the week, which was enough for the Lions to give him the all-clear to play. Expect him to build upon his team-leading 42 tackles, with the potential for a sack as well (he has three in six games).
