Shark Bites

Scott Bair of the Falcons official site believes Mike Davis will see “200 plus carries.” “They'll use several [RBs] in the rushing attack,” Blair says, “though I think Davis ends up the workhorse.” Our current RB projections have Davis down for 205 rush attempts, so it's a reasonable take. We’ll keep an eye on Atlanta adding another RB as teams make cuts to get rosters down to 53 by 4pm Monday. For now, Qadree Ollison looks like the team’s #2 rusher.

The Ravens are waiving RB Mike Davis. ESPN’s Adam Schefter says the move is “paving the way” for the team to activate RB J.K. Dobbins off IR today. We wouldn’t put Dobbins in Week 14 fantasy football lineups, and we’re betting on Baltimore operating a backfield committee the rest of the way. But a full-strength Dobbins is the group’s biggest talent. So his role and play will be worth watching

Ravens RB Mike Davis is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Browns. RBs Kenyan Drake, Justice Hill and Gus Edwards are up for Baltimore. Expect a 3-man committee backfield, with Drake our best guess as the leader.

Ravens OC Greg Roman said he'll go with the "hot hand" at RB in Sunday's opener vs. the Jets. Assuming RB J.K. Dobbins (knee) doesn't play, it'll be Mike Davis, Kenyan Drake and Justice Hill in the backfield. It's a plus matchup against last year's worst RB defense, but the murky backfield split makes it a tough situation to bank on in fantasy lineups.

The Ravens PR staff released the 1st "unofficial" depth chart of the year Friday, with RB Mike Davis the top active player at the position. That still slots him behind J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards, who remain on the PUP. Justice Hill, Corey Clement, Nate McCrary and rookie Tyler Badie follow, in that order. These depth charts are notoriously unreliable, especially ahead of preseason debuts for nearly all teams. We'll be watching to see if Badie -- in particular -- works in earlier once the exhibition contests get rolling. In the meantime, Davis is worth considering as a low-owned, end-of-draft option for best-ball tournament rosters.

The Ravens signed RB Mike Davis. The 29-year-old was released by the Falcons last week after averaging just 3.6 yards per carry in his lone season in Atlanta. That offensive line did him no favors, of course, and Davis actually ranked 15th among 50 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating. He arrives in Baltimore alongside RBs J.K. Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill, who are all coming off season-ending injuries. Davis looks like an insurance policy on Dobbins and Edwards, but we'll keep a close eye on this backfield this summer.
