The Panthers claimed RB Mike Davis off waivers. He's obviously no threat to Christian McCaffrey, but Davis might be the favorite for touches over Reggie Bonnafon if McCaffrey goes down.

The Bears have released RB Mike Davis. He's totaled just 3 carries and 1 target over the past 5 games, so there's no fantasy impact here in Chicago. Davis, though, could gain fantasy value if he lands somewhere like Detroit or Miami.

Bears RB Mike Davis is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Vikings. That's a boost to RB David Montgomery's stock.

The Bears have added free-agent RB Mike Davis. The former Seahawk was sneaky-good last year, averaging 4.6 yards per carry on 112 attempts and posting a 34-214-1 receiving line. Pro Football Focus graded him 25th among 62 RBs -- notably 12 spots ahead of new teammate Jordan Howard. Howard has been the subject of trade whispers, although we're not sure Davis' addition is a precursor. We'll see.

Update: Davis' deal is for 2 years and $6 million with a max value of $7 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that Mike Davis has earned a spot in the team's RB "rotation." That'd be alongside Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. Unless Carson misses more time with his hip injury, this will be a backfield to avoid in Week 5.

The Seahawks on Thursday reached a deal with RB Mike Davis. It's somewhat surprising after they elected not to tender him as a restricted free agent, but Davis re-joins an open backfield situation. He flashed a bit among 3 games of 15+ carries last year but should face plenty of competition for touches this season. That should include a healthier C.J. Prosise -- if we finally get that -- plus at least 1 guy not currently on the roster (draft or free agency).
