Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: All clear Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (abdomen) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Packers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Davis came into the game after logging NP/LP/LP throughout the week, so this is a positive sign for the team. Davis will be an important figure for the Buccaneers' offense as a starting corner, tasked with slowing down Davante Adams and Aaron Rodgers in the passing game.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Questionable for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (abdomen) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio reports.

Davis was absent from practice Wednesday before getting in a pair of limited sessions. He'll hope to suit up and build on his outstanding start to the season, which includes 21 tackles and three interceptions through five games.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Trending in right direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (abdomen) was a limited participant during Thursday's practice.

This is certainly positive news, as Davis was unable to suit up in any capacity Wednesday. The team could be looking to manage Davis' reps in practice, so it's still to early to rule the Auburn product out for Week 6. If he does miss Sunday's game against Green Bay, however, Jamel Dean or Ryan Smith would be the primary candidates to replace Davis in the starting lineup at cornerback.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (abdomen) was a non-participant for Wednesday's practice.

Davis swarmed the field during last Thursday's win over Chicago, suiting up in 100 percent of defensive snaps, and he racked up seven solo tackles, two pass break ups and an interception. It's unclear how the Auburn product suffered the injury, but, it's a negative sign that he didn't see any practice time after the extra rest time from Week 5. If Davis is to miss time with the injury, Jamel Dean or Ryan Smith would be in line for the start at corner back opposite Sean Murphy-Bunting.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Co-team-high tackle tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis recorded seven tackles (all solo), an interception and another pass breakup in the Buccaneers' 20-19 loss to the Bears on Thursday night.

It was a busy night for the third-year cornerback, who's been one of the Buccaneers' most consistent defensive players through the first five games. The tackle total qualified as a season-high figure for Davis, while his interception displayed both his athleticism and alertness, as it came off a tipped ball that initially hit the receiver's hands. The Auburn product has a career-high three picks already, and given the frequency with which he's been getting his hand on the ball (six pass breakups overall), he appears destined for a few more during the balance of the campaign.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Nabs key interception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis recorded two tackles (one solo), one interception and one additional defensed pass in the Buccaneers' 38-31 win over the Chargers on Sunday.

Over his first two seasons, Davis managed to officially break up 23 passes and yet come away with just one interception for his troubles, but the odds were bound to shift in his favor if he continued to disrupt at the same level. That may now be coming to pass, as Davis has a pair of picks in the last three games following his crucial interception of Justin Herbert at the Buccaneers' 48-yard line with 2:35 remaining Sunday. Tampa Bay was clinging to a 38-31 lead at the time, and the change of possession eventually forced Los Angeles to exhaust its remaining timeouts and the Bucs to go into kneel-down mode. Through four contests, Davis boasts a fantasy-friendly cornerback line of 13 tackles (10 solo), two interceptions and four total pass breakups while surrendering just 4.0 yards per attempt and a 46.7 percent completion rate in primary coverage.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Nabs second career pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis recorded five tackles (two solo), including one tackle for loss, an interception and another defensed pass in the Buccaneers' 31-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Davis has excelled in frequently getting his hands on the ball over his short career, but interceptions have still been at a premium for the Auburn product. Perhaps 2020 will be the season the odds turn in his favor, with Sunday's key third-quarter pick of Teddy Bridgewater that came with the Bucs nursing a seven-point lead potentially jumpstarting matters. The turnover led to a Ryan Succop field goal that gave Tampa Bay some key breathing room and afforded Davis' fantasy managers a bonus on what was a relatively solid day for the third-year corner. With 19 defensed passes a year ago, Davis will look to continue exploiting his knack for getting his hands on the ball in a Week 3 road matchup against the Broncos.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Sheds shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (shoulder) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Davis sustained a shoulder injury during a late training camp scrimmage, but he's ready to begin the season at full strength. The 23-year-old will reprise his usual role against the Saints on Sunday, when he'll face the difficult task of containing a lethal Drew Brees-led aerial attack.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Not practicing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (shoulder) didn't participate in Sunday's practice, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Davis suffered an injury during Friday's scrimmage, but head coach Bruce Arians didn't think it was too serious at the time. It's worth keeping an eye on, though, as Davis is instrumental to the Buccaneers' defense. Last season, he posted 60 tackles, 19 pass breakups and one interception over 14 games, and Arians has recently said he's a top-10 cornerback in the league.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Receives high praise from coach
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians labeled Davis as an elite cornerback in Tuesday's camp-opening Zoom call with reporters, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. "I think Carlton made that move last November," he said. "What he did to DeAndre Hopkins (23 yards on five catches from nine targets) was outstanding. He basically shut him out of the game, and that's not an easy job. He did a really good job on Julio (Jones). The penalties have gone. He's one of the top 10 guys in my opinion right now."

The impressive manner in which Davis wrapped up his second season clearly made an impression on Arians, and while the Buccaneers head man may also be trying to boost his young cornerback's confidence, the remarks may prove prescient once the season begins. Davis finished 2019 with 19 pass breakups and allowed a 43.6 percent completion rate on pass plays when he was in primary coverage. The Auburn product also proved to be sure tackler while compiling 60 stops, and he helped limit Jones to a solid-but-not-spectacular 12-146-0 line across two games. The press coverage defensive coordinator Todd Bowles asked his defensive backs to play was a good fit for Davis' skills since he'd thrived with it during his college days, and with a year of experience in the scheme now under his belt, there's certainly a chance he begins to convert more of the passes he gets his hands on into interceptions.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Solid second season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis, who logged six tackles (five solo) and a pass defensed in the Week 17 overtime loss to the Falcons, finished the 2019 season with 60 tackles (54 solo), one interception, 19 defensed passes, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 14 games.

For all the criticism the Buccaneers' secondary received at times in 2019, it's worth noting Davis held up relatively well while often being tasked with guarding a team's top receiver, particularly after 2016 first-round pick Vernon Hargreaves was jettisoned following a Week 10 loss to the Cardinals. Davis posted impressive tackle totals for a corner, and, considering he allowed just a 43.6 percent completion rate on the 110 throws he faced as a primary defender, the high number of stops weren't just due to receivers making catches in front of him. Then, Davis also got his hands on the ball with considerably greater frequency than he had during his rookie season in just one fewer game, as he boosted his number of defensed passes by 15 while playing the press coverage for which coordinator Todd Bowles' scheme called. However, despite the improvement he displayed this past season, Davis' IDP value heading into 2020 drafts remains middling due to the fact he's yet to demonstrate an ability to create enough turnovers to make him truly relevant as a fantasy asset.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (ankle) has been cleared for Saturday's matchup with the Texans, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Davis suffered an ankle injury at Thursday's practice and subsequently drew a questionable designation. However, it now appears he will take on his usual role at cornerback assuming he can avoid any setbacks.

December 19, 2019 04:20 PM
Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis is listed as questionable for Saturday's tilt against the Texans, Jenna Laine of reports.

Davis suffered an ankle injury during Thursday's practice and was limited as a result. The second-year pro will draw his usual start at cornerback if cleared to suit up Week 16, but the final word on his availability could come down to a game-time decision.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Around the ball in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis totaled five tackles (all solo) and three passes defensed in the Buccaneers' 38-35 win over the Colts on Sunday.

The Buccaneers' secondary continues to face an inordinate number of pass attempts due to both its aggressive offense and how good the front seven has been at stopping the run, but Davis is more than holding his own when in primary coverage. The second-year corner is allowing just a 41.4 percent completion rate and 5.7 yards per attempt on passes thrown his way, and his trio of pass break-ups against Indianapolis pushed his season total in that category to 17. Davis is also doing a solid job for a corner on the tackling front, now having posted five or more stops in five games and 46 tackles overall (42 solo) on the campaign.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Records first career INT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (hip) totaled five tackles (all solo) and was credited with five passes defensed, including one interception, in the Buccaneers' 35-22 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Davis flashed plenty of ball-hawking skills Sunday, nearly matching the seven defensed passes he came into the game with and coming up with the first interception of his career on a deep ball intended for Calvin Ridley early in the third quarter. Davis has solid (for a cornerback) 38 tackles through nine games, and he lowered his completion percentage and quarterback rating allowed to 41.9 and 64.6, respectively, with Sunday's suffocating effort.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Active in Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (hip) is active for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Saints, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Davis will return to action after a two-game absence, with his presence especially valued against a Saints passing attack likely to be looking for redemption after an embarrassing Week 10 loss to the Falcons. The second-year cornerback's availability also prevents the Buccaneers from having to take the field without their two Week 1 starters at the position, considering Vernon Hargreaves was waived earlier in the week.

November 15, 2019 04:24 PM
Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Draws questionable tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (hip) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Davis logged DNP/LP/FP designations during the week's trio of practices, managing to upgrade his level of participation each day. Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that he expects Davis to play Week 11, per Greg Auman of The Athletic, which certainly bodes well for the 22-year-old's chances of taking the field. If Davis is indeed able to go, he'll draw his usual start at cornerback and work to contain New Orleans' aerial attack.

Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Limited in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (hip) turned in a limited practice Thursday.

After Davis was unable to go Wednesday, this suggests he may still have a shot to play in Week 11. However, he was limited in practice prior to sitting out Week 10 as well. The 22-year-old's status after Friday's session will be telling.

November 13, 2019 05:20 PM
Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Watches practice from sidelines
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (hip) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Davis has missed the last two games, and he's trending toward a third straight absence Sunday against the Jets. The Buccaneers have limited options if Davis can't shake his injury since they cut Vernon Hargreaves on Tuesday and M.J. Stewart likely won't be available.

November 8, 2019 12:28 PM
Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Missing another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis (hip) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Jenna Laine of reports.

Davis will miss a second straight contest due to his lingering hip injury. As long as the starting cornerback is unable to go, Jamel Dean stands to play an expanded role in Tampa Bay's secondary.
