Corey Davis: 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

For a player who was targeted 112 times in a porous Tennessee offense last year, people seem to be sleeping on Corey Davis, with a Rotoheat ADP of 59 overall and 27 at his position. With guys who aren’t the number one receiving option on their team going ahead of him, you’d be wise to not let him slide!

In 2018, with Mariota and Gabbert throwing the ball it’s not hard to imagine a lower catch percentage but I was surprised with how many targets CD was given. From his rookie year to last year he nearly doubled his targets and brought his catch rate up to 58%, now Mariota is still there but they have a far more competent backup in case of injury in Ryan Tannehill.

The Tennessee offense tends to be at the bottom of the league in pass attempts (with only Seattle throwing less in 2018) but Davis is fairly insulated as he is the top option in the passing game, even with rooke A.J. Brown coming in this year. They like to use him in a variety of ways, and you’ll even seem him get rushing attempts and be moved around to create mismatches.
