Davis secured all four targets for 85 yards in Saturday's wild-card win over the Colts.
The rookie's snap count dropped to 54 percent, the lowest it's been since Week 10, but that was expected with John Brown (reserve/COVID-19 list) back in action starting in Week 17 and resuming his starting spot. Davis was the team's second-leading receiver in the win behind superstar Stefon Diggs' 128 yards, while the rookie has now seen at least four targets in each of the last seven games.
Davis caught two of five targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.
The rookie continues to be worked into the offensive game plan, seeing at least five targets for the fourth straight game. Davis finishes his first regular season with a 35/599/7 line on 62 targets, not bad at all considering his fourth-round status and some of the weapons in front of him. Davis may be counted on with regularity in the postseason, especially if Cole Beasley has trouble regaining full health from a knee injury.
Davis secured three of five targets for 33 yards in Buffalo's win over the Patriots on Monday.
The Bills attempted to involve Davis more than his stat line would indicate, as quarterback Josh Allen was often looking his way even on plays that didn't up with a throw to Davis or were negated by penalties. He's been mostly a touchdown-dependent deep-league play since John Brown went out with an ankle injury, and Davis' managers will be dealing with some extra variables for Week 17, as Brown could return from the reserve/COVID-19 list, plus the team only has seeding at stake with a playoff spot well in hand.
Davis' teammate John Brown was activated from injured reserve Monday but was then moved to the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Bills' official site reports.
That keeps Davis as the No. 3 guy in the wide receiver pecking order behind Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley for at least one more game, Monday at New England. Davis didn't do much of anything on five targets last week with just two catches for 18 yards, but he scored a TD in the three games prior, all of them with Brown out due to an ankle injury. Davis has played at least 83 percent of the offensive snaps in the four most recent games Brown has missed.
Davis secured two of five targets for 18 yards during Saturday's 48-19 win at Denver.
Davis' five targets ranked third on the team, but he finished just fifth in receiving output while seeing his three-game touchdown streak snapped. The fourth-round rookie has produced 65-plus receiving yards on three different occasions since Week 9; however, he's been held under 20 yards over his other three appearances during that span. TDs have boosted Davis' value throughout the 2020 campaign, and especially of late, as he has accumulated four scores over his past six appearances heading into a Week 16 road trip to New England.
Davis is position to serve as one of the Bills' starting receivers Saturday against the Broncos with teammate John Brown (ankle) still on injured reserve.
Davis should be set for at least one more week of increased playing time, as he's served as the Bills' clear-cut No. 3 receiver since Brown was put on the shelf. While Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley are the top two targets in the Buffalo passing game, Davis has a touchdown catch in three straight games and has seen at least four targets while playing no fewer than 83 percent of the offensive snaps in each contest.
Davis caught three of eight targets for 19 yards and a score in the Sunday night win over the Steelers.
While Davis wasn't very efficient, this does give him a touchdown in three straight games as he continues to thrive with starter John Brown on IR. Brown is expected to return at some point, but with the Buffalo offense clicking on all cylinders these days, Davis makes for a good play as long as his teammate remains on the shelf. Davis surprisingly leads the team in receiving touchdowns this season with six.
Davis brought in three of four targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' 34-24 win over the 49ers on Monday night.
Davis didn't come close to enjoying the volume of position mates Stefon Diggs or Cole Beasley, but he still made his mark with a 28-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter in which he got behind multiple 49ers defenders down the right sideline. The rookie now has a touchdown grab in three of the past four contests, and he figures to continue enjoying a low-volume, high-upside role as long as John Brown (ankle) remains on injured reserve.
Davis caught three of four targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Chargers.
Davis caught a 20-yard touchdown pass from Cole Beasley on a trick play in the second quarter and also hauled in a 44-yard pass from quarterback Josh Allen. The rookie third-round pick easily led all Bills receivers in yardage with Stefon Diggs limited to a season-low 39 yards. Davis now has four touchdowns and should continue to start on the outside opposite Diggs against the 49ers in Week 13 with John Brown (ankle) on IR.
Davis' teammate John Brown was placed on injured reserve Saturday due to a knee injury.
Davis was already lined up for a main role in Sunday's game against the Chargers, but he'll now get at least two more games in a top-three role due to his veteran teammate being moved to IR. Perhaps that extra bit of responsibility is enough to break a tie for those managers choosing between deeper WR options.
Davis' teammate John Brown (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Brown previously missed Weeks 5 and 7, allowing Davis to play 100 and 95 percent of snaps on offense. The rookie caught five of nine targets for 58 yards in the first of those games, but the Jets limited him to one catch on three targets a couple weeks later. While production is far from guaranteed, Davis figures to play a lot of snaps and run a lot of routes this week.
Davis did not haul in any of his three targets during Sunday's 32-30 loss to Arizona.
This marks the second time in three weeks that the fourth-round rookie has been held without a reception, though he did deliver four catches for 70 yards and a touchdown last Sunday against the Seahawks. Dating back to when the Bills took on Kansas City in Week 6, Davis has been held to fewer than 12 receiving yards in four of his five most recent outings. That's a stark drop-off from the 2.6 catches and 37.4 receiving yards per game he produced Weeks 1 through 5. Heading into Buffalo's Week 11 bye, Gabriel remains the clear No. 4 wide receiver behind Stefon Diggs, John Brown (ankle) and Cole Beasley, though it's worth noting that Brown is working through yet another injury.
Davis caught four of five targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.
This is about the most production we'll see out of the promising rookie when all of Buffalo's skill players are healthy, which finally came to roost in Week 9. We like the Central Florida product's long-term promise, but before you go rushing to nab him off the waiver wire, remember there are several options in front of him and that Davis caught just two balls for 18 yards and no scores combined over the previous three games, and that was with John Brown unhealthy and tight end Dawson Knox out of the lineup. Still, a 19-275-3 option as mostly a fourth receiver shows Davis' time may be coming quicker more than most fourth-round rookies.
Davis did not haul in either of his targets during Sunday's 24-21 win against the Patriots.
Davis was a considerable producer within the Bills' offensive attack Weeks 3 through 5, registering a combined 10 catches for 165 yards and one touchdown during that span. As Josh Allen's passing has regressed in recent outings, however, Davis' production has correspondingly dipped. The rookie fourth-round draft choice has managed just two total catches for 18 yards the past three weeks and had what could have been a very costly dropped TD pass in Sunday's close win over the Patriots, though a Week 9 matchup against Seattle's 32nd-ranked pass defense provides opportunity for a bounceback.
Davis caught just one of three targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 18-10 win at the Jets.
Davis certainly had an opportunity for a big game, as he saw 95 percent of the offensive snaps on a day where John Brown was out with a knee injury and Josh Allen threw for 307 yards. But the passing game ended up going through Cole Beasley, as the Jets were content to give up the underneath stuff, allowing Davis' teammate to end up with 11 catches for 112 yards. Davis is a nice long-term play, but like anyone not named Stefon Diggs, he remains a hit-or-miss option in this offense.
Davis is expected to claim a regular spot in three-wide sets in Sunday's game against the Jets with the Bills ruling out John Brown (knee) for the contest.
When Brown sat out the Bills' Week 5 loss to the Titans, it was Davis who stepped up in his stead. The rookie played all 72 of the Bills' offensive snaps in that contest, parlaying nine targets into five receptions for 58 yards. Davis should see elevated usage again Sunday sans Brown, though with the Bills being one of the heaviest favorites on the Week 7 slate, the run game may become more of a priority if Buffalo establishes an early lead.
Davis caught his only target for a seven-yard gain during Monday's 26-17 loss to the Chiefs.
John Brown (knee) was seemingly hobbled at points of Monday's defeat, but Davis was unable to emerge as he had the outing prior with five catches and 58 receiving yards. Buffalo's passing attack was hardly able to get anything going against Kansas City's No. 3 pass defense, as Josh Allen managed only 122 yards through the air on a rainy October evening. Buffalo's passing offense was prolific with 331.5 yards per game Weeks 1 through 4, as Davis produced two touchdowns and 16.1 yards per reception during that span. The Bills look to get it back in gear Week 7, taking on the winless Jets.
Davis caught five of nine targets for 58 yards in Tuesday's 42-16 loss to the Titans.
Davis finished second to Stefon Diggs in targets and receiving yards, as the rookie fourth-rounder took on a larger role with John Brown (knee) inactive. With over 50 yards in two of his last three games and a touchdown in the other, Davis is starting to establish himself as a consistent contributor in the Bills' surprisingly high-octane passing attack. He should remain involved Monday against the Chiefs, especially if Brown sits again.
Davis hauled in his lone target for a 26-yard touchdown in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Raiders.
Cole Beasley battled through a foot injury during Sunday's game, and Davis ended up out-snapping the veteran and finishing with 57 percent of the team's offensive snaps. Josh Allen didn't look his way much, but he made the most of his only target, finding the end zone for the second time in three weeks. With an 8-129-2 line through four games, Davis is an interesting player to keep an eye on, especially if Beasley or John Brown (calf) ends up missing time.
Davis' teammate John Brown, who left the team's Week 3 game against the Rams, practiced fully Friday and does not have an injury designation heading into Sunday's game in Las Vegas.
Davis was a nice little pickup earlier in the week when Brown's status was more in doubt after the former went for 81 yards on four catches in a breakthrough outing last week. The rookie from Central Florida will still see the field since he's the clear-cut No. 3 receiver in an offense that uses plenty of three-wide looks, but with Brown and tight end Dawson Knox (concussion) back to full health, Davis will remain pushed down in the pecking order. Still, a 7-103-1 line through three games to go with a somewhat significant role all spell for a nice start to Davis' pro career.
