Davis won't play Week 10 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Chiefs RB Knile Davis will be a healthy scratch for today's game against the Broncos, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  Jamaal Charles' backup for the past 2 years, Davis has now fallen behind Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware on the depth chart.  He's signed cheaply for 1 more season in Kansas City.  We'll see if the Chiefs hang on to him.  West is locked in as the feature back for the rest of 2015.

The Steelers have signed RB Knile Davis. It's notable if only because RB DeAngelo Williams remains a free agent. Another Le'Veon Bell injury could find Davis as the lead back in a high-scoring offense. We emphasize "could," though, because he's certainly no lock to win the backup gig. Davis has failed to top 3.5 yards per carry in any of his 4 NFL seasons.

The Chiefs on Saturday re-signed RB Knile Davis. He spent 2 games doing little with the Packers after they traded for him and then briefly joined the Jets before they dropped him again for C.J. Spiller. This is obviously the best spot he's been in all season, with the offense he'd spent his whole career playing in. Davis will likely be the #2 RB behind Charcandrick West in Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Of course, just how many touches that might actually mean would be anyone's guess. We'll see if Davis retains his job once Spencer Ware returns from his concussion.

The Packers have released RB Knile Davis, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. That was quick. Acquired on October 18, Davis carried only 5 times for 5 yards across 2 games. Green Bay is left with Don Jackson and James Starks at RB (plus hybrid player Ty Montgomery). Starks hasn’t played since Week 5 due to a knee injury.

Packers RB Knile Davis is active for tonight's game against the Bears. He was acquired just a couple of days ago and is expected to have "a package of 10 plays or so," according to insider Tom Silverstein. Don Jackson, promoted from the practice squad this afternoon, is listed as Green Bay's starter. If you're dabbling in the Packers backfield tonight -- and we wouldn't recommend it -- Jackson is the better fantasy play.

The Chiefs have traded RB Knile Davis to the Packers. He's been bandied about as a trade candidate for the past couple of seasons after falling out of favor in Kansas City. The 5'10, 227-pounder looks the part but has never averaged better than 3.5 yards per carry in a season. Davis heads to a Packers backfield that has a banged-up starter and a backup expected to miss a month. He should quickly assume a role and could even be a spot starter if Eddie Lacy misses time with his ankle issue. Davis is worth adding at least in deeper fantasy leagues.
