Vikings' Todd Davis: Gets start but little prodution
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had one total tackle and played 11 of the defense's 54 snaps in Sunday's loss at Seattle.

Davis started at strong-side linebacker, but the Vikings rarely had three linebackers on the field. Eric Kendricks and Eric Wilson stay on the field in nickel and dime packages, leaving Davis with little playing time. However, Davis looks to have emerged as the No. 3 linebacker after the season-ending injury to Anthony Barr.

Vikings' Todd Davis: Inks deal with Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis signed a one-year deal with the Vikings on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Davis was a starter for the past four seasons in Denver, most recently racking up a career-best 134 combined tackles in the 2019 campaign -- his second consecutive 100-tackle season. His release was largely a cap-related move, so signing the 28-year-old could pay huge dividends for a Minnesota team looking to add linebacker depth following the loss of Anthony Barr (pectoral). It's unclear if Davis will be active for Week 3 against Tennessee given the extremely short turnaround, but he's still a player that could end up on the IDP radar in the near future.

Todd Davis: Cut loose by Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos released Davis (calf) on Friday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

On the heels of back-to-back, 100-tackle campaigns, Davis finds himself on the chopping block as the Broncos whittle down to the regular-season roster. This seems to be a cost-cutting move more than anything, as the team frees up $4.5 million in cap space, per Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post. On a positive note, Davis shouldn't have a problem passing a physical with another team after tending to a minor calf injury during training camp.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Out at least a week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis will miss some time due to a calf injury, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. "I think Todd will miss at least a week, and after that we'll see how it goes," coach Vic Fangio said Friday.

On the plus side, Fangio noted that the linebacker's current calf issue isn't as serious as the one he had last year, which caused Davis to miss more than two months of action. The Broncos open up their 2020 slate on Sept. 14, which offers Davis a decent amount of time to recover before Week 1.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Undergoing tests on calf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis left Thursday's practice early and will undergo an MRI on his left calf, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.

Davis injured his calf July 2019 and proceeded to miss the first two games of the campaign. Despite this setback to the start of the season, he led the Broncos in tackles with 134, which included compiling double digits in seven of the final eight contests. Another calf issue could delay the start of this year, but until he's run through a battery of tests, any potential absence won't be known.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Injures left calf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis suffered a calf injury during Thursday's practice, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Davis was helped to the team's locker room Thursday, unable to put weight on his left leg, per Klis. At first glance, this sounds like an issue that could cause the linebacker to miss some time, but we'll await further updates on Davis' status from the team.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Staying in Mile High City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos will pick up Davis' 2020 option, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

The 2019 season was essentially a contract year for Davis, as the team would have saved $4.5 million against the salary cap by declining the option. Davis proved his value, though, racking up a career-high 134 tackles in 2019, and he will be rewarded with another year in Denver. The 27-year-old is in line to start again in 2020.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Lays the boom in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis finished the 2019 campaign with 134 total tackles and a pass defensed.

There was some question as to what Davis' role would be in 2019 given a nagging offseason calf injury and head coach Vic Fangio's historic preference for rangier inside linebackers. He quickly cast aside doubts, finishing the season with a career-high 134 tackles -- eighth best in the league -- despite missing the first two games of the season. He racked up eight games with double-digit tackles, including a six-game streak that spanned from Week 9 through Week 15. Don't be surprised if the Broncos look at middle linebackers in the draft as Davis enters a contract year and still isn't at his best in space, but it'd be hard to imagine the Broncos finding an upgrade over the middle in 2020.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Quick return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (lower leg) is back on the field for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Davis suffered the injury in the second quarter but after extra medical attention, was quickly back on the field without missing much time. He'll assume his normal starting role at inside linebacker.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Exits contest Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (lower leg) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

The specifics surrounding the injury remain unclear and Davis was forced to leave the game in the second quarter. As long as Davis is sidelined, look for Josey Jewell and Joseph Jones to be the primary beneficiaries to see an uptick in snaps.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Snaps streak of 10-plus tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis recorded six tackles during Sunday's 27-17 victory over Detroit.

After a six-game stretch of averaging 12 tackles, Davis only managed a fraction of that in a seemingly soft matchup against a struggling Lions offense quarterbacked by David Blough. Considering the veteran has reached double-digit stops in more than half of his appearances in 2019, there seems to be decent odds of a bounce-back performance in Sunday's season finale against the Raiders.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Tallies 11 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis accumulated 11 tackles (seven solo) in Denver's 23-3 loss to Kansas City.

Davis once again led the team in tackles and is now up to 114 (67 solo) through 12 games this season. The 27-year-old linebacker was also only sidelined for four of a possible 68 snaps, meaning he was on the field for 94 percent of them. He will look to stay active on defense when the Broncos welcome the Lions into town for their Week 16 contest.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Racks up 15 tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis recorded 15 tackles during Denver's 38-24 win in Houston.

Davis doesn't get quite the same fanfare as fellow inside backer Alexander Johnson, who is sent more often to blitz and is a little more dangerous in pass coverage, but Davis is absolutely laying the boom over the middle as of late. The veteran backer has recorded double-digit tackles in five consecutive games, including Sunday's season-high tally. He'll look to continue that streak Sunday versus a Chiefs team against which he recorded eight tackles in Week 7.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Double-digit tackles again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis recorded 10 tackles (four solo) and one defended pass during Sunday's 23-20 win over the Chargers.

Davis has now made 45 tackles in his last four games, during all of which he's had double-digit tackle totals. Though he doesn't boast much upside as a pass rusher, Davis' strong streak as a run stopper lends him reliable IDP value. He'll look to keep up his outstanding pace against the Texans on Sunday.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Has season-best output
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis finished Sunday's 20-3 loss in Buffalo with 13 tackles.

Davis has now finished with double-digit tackle totals in three consecutive games and four times overall this season. He's on pace to flirt with the career-high 114 stops he notched just last season. Davis has been a key cog and signal-caller on a top-10 defense, but he probably doesn't have quite the value of teammate Alexander Johnson, who is used more as a blitzer. Next up is a Sunday matchup against the Chargers, against which Davis racked up seven tackles in Week 5.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Piles up tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis tallied 13 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Vikings.

This was Davis' highest tackle count since the 2016 season, and it's his third double-digit performance of the year. Despite missing the first two games of the season, the 27-year-old linebacker comfortably paces the Broncos with 66 tackles through eight contests, an average of 8.3 per game.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Totals 10 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had 10 tackles (four solo) in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Davis missed the first two games of the season and got off to a slow start in Week 3 with three tackles, but he's since been a solid IDP contributor. The 27-year-old has 50 tackles (36 solo) in the last six games as Denver enters its bye week.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Logs full practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Browns.

Initial fears that Davis may have suffered a serious injury Week 8 against the Colts proved inconsequential as the 27-year-old returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday and fully on Friday. He has logged at least six tackles in five straight games.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Spotted with limp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (knee) limped into the locker room with a sleeve on his left knee and didn't return to Sunday's loss against the Colts, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Davis was hurt on the first couple defensive series in the game and was originally ruled probable to return. The fact that he was spotted with a sleeve on his knee suggests he could be dealing with a substantial injury. Josey Jewell came in to finish the game for him and would be the favorite to do so for Week 9 if Davis is forced to miss time.

Broncos' Todd Davis: Probable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis suffered a knee injury and is probable to return to Sunday's game against the Colts, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Davis was forced to exit the game late in the first quarter, and it's unclear how he picked up the injury. As long as the Sacramento State product is sidelined, Corey Nelson is in line to see an increase in snaps in the game.
