Corey Davis Fantasy Football News 2017

Titans HC Mike Mularkey on Monday ruled out WR Corey Davis (hamstring) for this weekend's game against the Browns. It'll be the rookie's 5th straight missed game. And we haven't seen or heard any signs of progress. Tennessee has a Week 8 bye, so perhaps Davis is targeting a Week 9 return. Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor will again serve as the top 3 WRs for Sunday's plus matchup vs. Cleveland.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is out for Monday night's game against the Colts. The rookie has been sidelined since Week 3 and has no timetable for return. He's worth stashing if possible but might need to be dropped in shorter-bench leagues as the bye weeks start to hit.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey on Monday ruled out WR Corey Davis (hamstring) for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. It'll be the rookie's 3rd straight missed game -- and there's no timetable for his return. Davis might be tough to hang on to in shallow-bench leagues with the bye weeks starting to hit.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans. The decision coming so early suggests he might miss additional time beyond Week 4. Rishard Matthews and Eric Decker will continue to serve as Tennessee's top 2 WRs in the meantime.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Getting scratched so early means he could be looking at a multi-week absence. We'd still try to stash the talented rookie on fantasy benches. With Davis sidelined, Tennessee's top 3 WRs will be Rishard Matthews, Eric Decker and Taywan Taylor. None is a strong fantasy play vs. Seattle.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey labeled WR Corey Davis (hamstring) "day-to-day." The rookie actually returned to Sunday's win over the Jaguars, so we're expecting him to play in Week 3. But he'll be a risky, low-ceiling fantasy option vs. the Seahawks.

Titans WR Corey Davis injured his hamstring in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Jaguars. We haven't yet heard whether it's the same hammy that bothered him throughout August. He's officially questionable to return.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey said Monday that WR Corey Davis won't be on a snap count in the opener but will be used in "specific situations." It sounds like this is a case of the rookie not being fully comfortable in the playbook yet after missing most of spring workouts and training camp. The good news is that the hamstring no longer appears to be an issue. Davis should quickly earn a bigger role and could be an upside fantasy starter by the end of September.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey said Thursday that WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is on track to play in the season opener against the Raiders. The rookie missed a big chunk of August but had a good week of practice, per Mularkey. Davis will be tough to trust in Week 1 fantasy lineups but could quickly emerge as a weekly starter.

The Titans' WR corps is getting healthy. Corey Davis (hamstring) and Eric Decker (ankle) returned to practice on Tuesday. It's unclear if either guy will play in Thursday's preseason finale, but both are on track to be ready for Week 1. That's good news for QB Marcus Mariota.

Titans WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is expected to be ready for Week 1, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The rookie figures to be at least somewhat limited early on after missing most of the spring and summer. But he has the talent to quickly emerge as maybe the focal point of Tennessee's passing game. Davis is a great stash at his late-9th-round ADP.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey said Sunday that WR Corey Davis (hamstring) is "on track" to play in the preseason. Whether that's the 3rd or 4th preseason game (or both) remains unclear. The important takeaway, though, is that Davis should be ready to roll come Week 1. He's missed valuable time since going down on August 3. But the rookie was running with the 1st-team offense before the injury and figures to return to a prominent role. He's fairly priced at his late-7th-round ADP.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey labeled WR Corey Davis "week to week" with his hamstring injury. "We're just going to play it by ear and see how it is," Mularkey added. "He'll be out at least a week, maybe longer." Davis is obviously dealing with something more than a minor injury. Barring a setback, he should be ready for the start of the regular season. But the missed time is no good for a rookie.

Titans WR Corey Davis is dealing with a hamstring injury, HC Mike Mularkey announced on Thursday. He's heading for an MRI, which will show the extent of the damage. Davis was off to a strong start at camp, running with the 1st-team offense. We'll see how long this injury keeps him shelved. The rookie is coming off the board as WR42 in recent MFL10 drafts.

Titans insider Jim Wyatt called WR Taywan Taylor a "star of the offseason" and even predicted that he'll out-target WR Corey Davis this season. Davis, of course, was the 5th overall pick of this year's draft. Taylor was a 3rd-rounder. But he checks boxes for college production (3,197 yards and 34 TDs over the last 2 seasons) and athleticism (96th percentile SPARQ score). There's a crowd in Tennessee with Taylor and Davis joining veterans Rishard Matthews and Eric Decker at WR. TE Delanie Walker is still there. And the Titans figure to remain a run-leaning offense. We'd be surprised if they produced more than 2 viable fantasy starting WRs, so the battle for snaps and targets this summer will be worth monitoring closely.

The Titans have agreed to a 1-year deal with WR Eric Decker. The former Jet gives QB Marcus Mariota a talented, steady veteran presence. Decker shouldn't keep Corey Davis from reaching the top of the WR depth chart if the rookie proves ready to do so, but he'll cut into the available targets and certainly make it tough for Rishard Matthews to deliver another fantasy-starter line. Decker could also block 3rd-round WR Taywan Taylor from turning into a fantasy surprise this season. We'll see this summer just how healthy Decker is coming off groin and shoulder surgeries at the end of last year. But he reportedly looked good in Jets OTAs before his release. Another receiving weapon makes Mariota even more attractive around the fringe of QB1 territory in fantasy football drafts.

The Titans selected WR Taywan Taylor in the 3rd round. Taylor stayed 4 years at Western Kentucky, posting massive numbers over his last two (184-3197-34). A slippery pass catcher, the 22-year-old impressed at the Scouting Combine by running the 3-cone drill in 6.57 seconds and posting a 132" broad jump. In Tennessee, Taylor projects as the #3 WR for 2017 behind Corey Davis and Rishard Matthews. But the 5'11, 203-pounder carries long-term #2 upside in a passing game led by emerging star Marcus Mariota.

The Titans used the #5 overall pick on WR Corey Davis. He was a stat-compiling machine at Western Michigan, leaving as the NCAA’s record holder for career receiving yards (5,278). After posting a 67-941-6 line as a true freshman, he topped 1,400 yards and 12 TDs in each of his final 3 seasons. He certainly squared off against some weaker competition in the MAC but also averaged 5.8 catches, 77.9 yards and .6 TDs in 9 games against “Power 5” conferences (ACC, SEC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 12). An ankle injury prevented Davis from working out in the pre-draft process, but he looks plenty athletic on film. He’s also 1 of the most advanced route runners in the class. Davis has a shot to quickly become Tennessee’s #1 WR, bumping Rishard Matthews to the #2 spot. QB Marcus Mariota’s stock is on the rise.
