There was reason to believe that Davis would take a step forward in 2019.
He stayed healthy during a 16-game 2018 that brought 65 catches, 891 yards and 4 scores. A 5th overall pick, Davis was just 24 years old entering a critical third season.
But instead of improving last fall, he regressed. Even with only 1 game lost to injury, Davis mustered 43 catches for 601 yards and 2 scores. He was really only a fantasy asset in 2 games: Week 4 at the Falcons (5-91-1) and Week 7 vs. the Chargers (6-80-1). He didn’t top 7 targets until the AFC Championship game.
Davis watched as rookie A.J. Brown erupted for 52-1,051-8 on just 84 targets. There was no built in rapport among QB-WR, as new Titan Ryan Tannehill took over the starting role in Week 7 and didn’t look back.
Ultimately, having a rookie Round 2 pick step in and deliver was an awful look for Davis.
Unless there’s a DeVante Parker-level turnaround, Davis will play elsewhere in 2021.
That can only mean good news for his dynasty value; Tennessee is a run-heavy offense that’ll struggle to support more than 1 consistent pass catcher.Only 3 teams finished with a higher run rate than the Titans in 2019.
The front office at least passed on adding to the WR corps. Returning with Brown and Davis is Adam Humphries, a strict slot target who missed 4 games due to an ankle injury. Jonnu Smith is a candidate to step forward as a full-time TE whose former position coach is calling the plays.
Even if Davis sticks as the #2 target, that’s not an appealing spot. Current projections have him fo…
