Corey Davis fantasy football updates for Week 13

Despite a lackluster passing game, Titans WR Corey Davis has some fantasy potential. We’re tracking his fantasy performances and news updates throughout the season.

While the Titans scored 42 points on the Jaguars on Sunday, Corey Davis didn’t contribute much of anything. He had just two catches on three targets for 29 yards as he watched his rookie teammate, A.J. Brown, go for 135 yards and a touchdown. Davis is $4,000 heading into a crucial divisional matchup in Indianapolis.

Corey Davis will likely return to the field after missing his team’s last game against the Chiefs, thanks to the extra rest of a bye week. He’s priced at $4,300 at home against the Jaguars. In their last meeting this season, Davis caught three for 44 yards, but things could be different this time with Ryan Tannehill throwing the ball instead of Marcus Mariota.

The Titans pulled off a surprising upset against the Chiefs in Week 10 in a high-scoring battle. Corey Davis could have posted a pretty solid stat line had he been healthy enough to play. Dealing with a hip injury, though, Tennessee held Davis out. Now, the Titans get a bye so he’ll have an extra week to get back to 100% ahead of an important stretch of divisional matchups against the Jaguars and the Colts.

Despite scoring 20 points in the second half, the Titans still lost by 10 to the Panthers. It was a game that favored players who wear the number 22. Christian McCaffrey and Derrick Henry accounted for five of the game’s seven touchdowns. And while Ryan Tannehill threw for over 300 yards, Corey Davis couldn’t make himself very relevant, once again. He was tied for the second-most targets (five) on the team, catching four for 48 yards, but it equated to his seventh game this season with less than nine DKFP.

Next up, the Titans host the Chiefs. Kansas City’s defense has been pretty solid against wide receivers this season, allowing the seventh-least DKFP per game. After nearly playing in Week 9, Patrick Mahomes is expected to make his return in Week 10. His presence is actually a good sign for the Titans’ pass game, as the likelihood of a shootout always increases when he’s on the field. At $4,400, Corey Davis could be in for one of his surprise weeks, but only if he can find the endzone.

The potential for Corey Davis points was there, but the results were not. Instead, Ryan Tannehill found Jonnu Smith, Tajae Sharpe and A.J. Brown in the endzone to lift the Titans over the Bucs and keep the playoff hopes alive. Davis’ lack of production wasn’t due to a lack of targets, as he was tied for the second-most on the team with six. Sadly, he was only able to reel in two for nine yards to record his lowest DKFP output since Week 1.

The road gets rougher for Corey Davis, as Tennessee travels to North Carolina. The Panthers have allowed the fifth-fewest passing yards per game and will be viewing this as a bounce back game after getting toppled by the 49ers. The plus side is that the Titans should be playing from behind. Still, it’s not enough to justify picking Davis at an elevated (but still low) price of $4,600. We can only hope that the targets stay consistent with Tannehill throwing the ball, but it’s still too early to tell.

The Titans ended up rolling with a new quarterback in Week 7 and it certainly paid off. Ryan Tannehill threw for 312 yards (beating Mariota’s season-high) and two touchdowns, one of which to our favorite wild card wide receiver, Corey Davis. The Titans just won’t go away, keeping within one win of the Colts and Texans in the AFC South. In Week 8, they’ll host the post-bye week Buccaneers who have given up the most passing yards per game this season.

With that said, don’t get too excited about Corey Davis. One game with Tannehill isn’t enough to feel confident in his DFS output. We saw Daniel Jones over-perform in his first start, then come right back down to earth in the games to follow. All season long, the Titans’ receiver has either scored 20 DKFP or less than eight. His inconsistency kept his price from spiking, and at $4,400, Davis isn’t a bad shout for a salary-saver in a tournament with this tantalizing matchup. He’ll be competing with rookie A.J. Brown for targets.

Things took a turn for the worst in Week 6 for the Titans. After throwing for 63 yards and two interceptions, head coach Mike Vrabel replaced Marcus Mariota with Ryan Tannehill in the third quarter. Tannehill was a bit better, registering 144 yards and only one INT, but the Titans were inevitably shut out by the Broncos. And, of course, Corey Davis suffered again. This was his fifth week scoring 7.40 DKFP or fewer, and we’re only six weeks into the season.

Davis’ Week 7 outlook doesn’t get any more favorable. The Titans host the Chargers, whose defense has given up the fifth-fewest passing yards per game, just trailing the Broncos and the Bills (each of the Titans’ two previous opponents.) A quarterback decision hasn’t been made, but it would be logical to roll with Tannehill. Maybe he’ll provide more upside for Corey Davis, who’s priced at $4,000 again, but I don’t think anyone would suggest rostering a Titans offensive player until they begin to figure it out, which they realistically might not do this season.

The roller coaster that is the Tennessee Titans’ season continues, and Week 5 was a low point in the ride. For the second time this season, they were held to seven points. Granted, this was against the Bills’ defense who contained the Patriots’ explosive offense the week prior, but I don’t think we should cut the Titans any slack. This inconsistency will be an issue for Tennessee all season long.

After recording his best week of the season, Corey Davis went back to being Corey Davis, securing just two of four targets for 28 yards. It was his worst performance since putting up a goose egg in Week 1, and things don’t look any easier in Week 6. The Titans head to Denver to face a Broncos team who is coming off of a 20-13 road win against the Chargers. While it was their first win of the season, their defense has been up there with the best of them, ranking fourth in passing yards allowed per game. Davis’ price is at a season-low of $4,000, but it’s still not worth paying down for him in a tough matchup like this.

Corey Davis and the Titans got right back on track with a win in Atlanta. Marcus Mariota threw for three touchdowns, connecting with Davis in the endzone for the first time this season. A receiver like Corey Davis is bound to have some solid games like this one, where he put up 5 catches for 91 yards, totaling 20.1 DKFP. It’s encouraging to see Tennessee utilizing their pass game, but I wouldn’t expect that to stay consistent.

The Titans head home to host the Bills in Week 5, in what won’t be an offensive-friendly matchup for them. Buffalo is allowing the second-fewest opposing yards, even after facing New England in Week 4. Corey Davis’ price jumped slightly to $4,400, but don’t be tricked by his performance against the Falcons. I think there will be spots throughout the season that we can try him out in tournaments, but this is certainly not one of those.

The Tennessee Titans came up short to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3, losing 20-7 on Thursday night. The team’s lone touchdown came from Derrick Henry in the fourth quarter, making it Mariota’s first game of the season without a TD pass, and it may not be the last. Meanwhile, Corey Davis caught three for 44 yards, tallying a season-high 7.4 DKFP. He’s hovering at four targets per week and that’s just not going to cut it for fantasy owners.

After a long week of rest, the Titans must travel to Atlanta. The Falcons are coming back home after a loss to the Colts, so they’ll have the Titans to take their anger out on. This will be a defensive clash, with both teams ranking in the top-8 for least yards per game allowed. Corey Davis is priced at $4,200, continuing a downward trend that we’ve seen since Week 1. He could potentially rack up some points if the Titans are trailing, but I wouldn’t bank on that. Stay away from Corey Davis for the time being.

Blowing out the Browns in Week 1, then losing to the Colts in Week 2. That sounds very “Titans” to me. Marcus Mariota’s inconsistency is going to be an issue all season for Tennessee, making it difficult to predict performances by his receivers. Corey Davis is one of those. Mariota had 248 passing yards and three TDs in Week 1, while Davis had zero receptions. Then, when his QB throws for 154 yards and one TD, Davis leads the team’s wide receivers in catches and yards (3-38.) His targets grew from three to five in a week, but that’s not enough to warrant a fantasy play.

The Titans have a short week, as they visit Jacksonville for a Thursday night game and their second divisional matchup in a row. The Jaguars are coming off of a 13-12 loss to the Texans, in which they held DeAndre Hopkins to 40 yards on five catches. This is a Showdown matchup, and Corey Davis’ price is set at $9,000 — making him the highest-priced Tennessee receiver. Even in a one-game contest, I would consider other Titans’ receivers before picking Davis.

In a game that the Titans put up 43 points, Corey Davis did not contribute at all. Davis had the fifth-most targets on the team with three, but didn’t reel in any of them. A goose egg in Week 1 and minimal target share does not bode well for the third-year receiver. The Titans will host the Colts in a divisional matchup next week, and Corey Davis could look to get more involved. In two games against the Colts last season, he caught seven passes with little else to complement the receptions. Plus, with a Derrick Henry leading the offense on the ground, and rookie receiver A.J. Brown and veteran tight end Delanie Walker leading the air targets, it’s hard to see a path to success for Corey Davis. His price dropped $400, but until we see any sign of production from the Titans’ WR, Davis isn’t worthy of fantasy roster.

With Andrew Luck’s retirement, the Colts have hit a significant decline. The Tennessee Titans have a legitimate shot at making the playoffs, even though the Texans are expected to be the best team in the AFC South. After missing the playoffs in a Week 17 showdown against Indianapolis, head coach Mike Vrabel and his Titans will be hungry for more.

As for the passing game, things don’t look all too promising. Tennessee ranked second-to-last in pass attempts last season, only ahead of Seattle. Of the underwhelming 437 pass attempts, 112 were targeted at Corey Davis. Seeing just over 25% of throws is a good sign for a wide receiver, even if your team doesn’t like to air it all that often.

On the flip side, the Titans have added to its receiving repertoire with Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown, not to mention Delanie Walker still being on the field. So that target share may suffer a bit, but Davis is still expected to see the most targets of all Tennessee pass catchers.

Davis starts the regular season with a $4,900 price tag on DraftKings in an away game against the Browns. The hype around Cleveland is warranted, after boosting its offensive power and strengthening its defense. With Myles Garrett leading the pass rushers, the Titans offensive line will have its hands full. Though, if the Browns live up to their hype, Corey Davis could benefit from the Titans trailing and needing to pass. He’s a potential money-saver, but there are better Week 1 options.
