Shark Bites

Jets WR Corey Davis has left the team for personal reasons, HC Robert Saleh said Wednesday. Saleh wouldn’t say whether Davis will be back for Week 1, adding that he can take “however long he needs." We'll keep an eye on this and let you know when Davis returns. He's been no more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Jets WR Corey Davis took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that he's retiring from the NFL. HC Robert Saleh had shared earlier in the afternoon that Davis had stepped away from the team for personal reasons. Though various hamstring and groin injuries plagued Davis throughout his career, he was a reasonably productive player when healthy. The 5th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft played six seasons between the Titans and Jets, accumulating 273 catches, 3,879 receiving yards, and 17 TDs. With Davis gone, we project a small uptick in favor of WR Allen Lazard. Fellow wideout Mecole Hardman and the TEs should also see marginal improvements in their opportunity shares, but this news doesn't move the needle much for fantasy purposes. See how our WR rankings shake out in the aftermath of Davis' retirement.

Jets WR Corey Davis shared his thoughts following an offseason of trade/cut rumors. “All of that was out of my control,” Davis said. “It was kind of a long offseason. There was a point where there was uncertainty. Obviously, with all the moves going on, it’s hard not to think that. It’s still a business, but I’m happy to be here. Happy they kept me.” New York added WRs Allen Lazard and Mecole Hardman. But HC Robert Saleh said all offseason that the team intended to keep Davis. The 28-year-old is under contract for one more season, and he’s essentially free in current fantasy drafts.

Are you expecting Jets WR Corey Davis to play for a different team in 2023? His HC disagrees. "He's gonna be on the team, yeah," Robert Saleh said Friday about Davis, according to NFL.com. Davis has been rumored as a trade or cut candidate all offseason. That's primarily because he sports a 2023 cap hit of more than $11 million, vs. less than $700,000 in dead cap if released. The Jets aren't in big cap trouble, though, to the point that they need to dump him. We'll see how this plays out. And the crowded WR corps will make it tough for Davis to be fantasy-relevant if he does stick around. But treat him (and other Jets) as though he's staying, at least for now. Check out where all the Jets WRs sit in our 2023 fantasy football rankings.

Jets WR Corey Davis (concussion) practiced fully again on Wednesday and does not carry an injury designation ahead of Week 16 vs. the Jaguars. Teammates Denzel Mims (concussion) and Jeff Smith (knee) did not practice and have ultimately been ruled out. While the Jaguars rank as the 3rd-easiest matchup in fantasy points allowed to WRs, the inconsistencies of QB Zach Wilson make Davis a risky play. Fantasy managers should sit Davis outside of the deepest of leagues.

Thursday Night Football is just around the corner, and the Jets WR corps has a mixed bag of injuries to sort through. Corey Davis (concussion) upgraded to a full participant in practice on Tuesday after being limited on Monday. However, Denzel Mims (concussion) and Jeff Smith (knee) did not practice two days in a row to open the week. Today's injury report will shed light on who QB Zach Wilson will have to throw to in tomorrow's game vs. the Jaguars. Stay tuned.
