Davis had the best season of his career, finishing with 728 total yards in 15 games. He got a few starts because of injury but served as the No. 2 or 3 back most weeks for the Seahawks. He also emerged as the top change-of-pace back, getting 34 receptions. He had seven games with multiple receptions. He also had a 100-yard rushing game and averaged a solid 4.6 yards per carry. Davis signed with the Bears this offseason and will try to serve as their top backup. Davis is a small back but is a power back that can churn out the yards and knock down would-be tacklers. He lacks a bit of a second gear, though, and isn't a huge big-play threat. Davis has emerged as a reliable pass catcher in recent seasons, having 49 receptions his last two years.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Davis might have reached his ceiling last year. He could have a hard time repeating. He might be worth a late-round grab because of his upside if getting consistent work. He could get around 500 or 600 total yards with 25 receptions and a few scores.
After a solid 2018,Mike Davis was feeling good. He parlayed his season into a two-year contract with the Chicago Bears. He was in line to have plenty of work after the trade of Jordan Howard to the Eagles. Then the draft happened and the teamused their third-round pick on running back David Montgomery. Not only was it their first pick of the draft but they traded up to get him in the fold. With the pick went the fantasy prospects of Mike Davis.Tarik Cohen has the pass-catching role in the offense. Despite having less than 100 carries in 2018 he was still fantasy relevant due to his 71 receptions for 725 yards and five receiving touchdowns. David Montgomery is also a solid pass catcher from the backfield and along with his rush ability, he will take over the Howard role of 250 carries. This makes David Montgomery and Tarik Cohen the backs to own in Chicago. This of course changes should an injury occur in the preseason but if nothing changes for the top two, nothing changes for Davis either. He will be hard-pressed to find close to the same success with the Bears which he had with Seattle. 112 rushes, 514 yards and four touchdowns might be a pipe dream this season.If drafting early in the preseason, Davis should not be in consideration for a roster slot. If the preseason comes and either Montgomery or Cohen get hurt, he can be picked up off waivers if better options are not available. Consider him a deep-league handcuff or desperation fill-in if disaster strikes.

Former Chicago Bears RB Mike Davis was claimed off waivers by the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 11, according to a source.
The Chicago Bears waived RB Mike Davis Saturday, Nov. 9, according to a source.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis failed to register a carry in the Bears loss to the Raiders 24-21 in Week 5. The Bears will head into their bye week looking for answers to their sub-par running game and Davis has been a non-factor thus far. It certainly is disappointing after the Bears paid millions in the offseason for Davis to become a weapon in their offensive scheme. But his snap-count has been on the decline for weeks now and has zero fantasy value at this time.
Chicago Bears linebacker Roquan Smith, defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (knee) and Mike Davis (personal) are all inactive for Week 4 against the Vikings. It's unclear why Smith is unavailable for this game, as he wasn't listed on the team's final injury report. Either way, with both he and Hicks out on Sunday, it's bad news for the Bears Defense and great news for Vikings running back Dalvin Cook on the road in a hostile environment. Chicago's defense/special teams remains a strong start against Minnesota's ground-and-pound style, however. Davis' absence means that rookie David Montgomery and Tarik Cohen should have the backfield all to themselves, although Davis' role has shrunk since the season opener.
The Chicago Bears have declared DL Akiem Hicks, RB Mike Davis, WR Taylor Gabriel, DL Bilal Nichols, CB Kevin Toliver, LB Roquan Smith and OG Kyle Long inactive for Week 4.
Chicago Bears WR Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and DT Bilal Nichols (hand) did not practice Friday, Sept. 27, and have been ruled out for the Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings. PK Eddy Pineiro (knee) and TE Trey Burton (groin) were limited Friday and are listed as questionable as are DT Akiem Hicks (knee) and OL Kyle Long (hip) who didn't practice Friday. DB Eddie Jackson (shoulder), DE Roy Robertson-Harris (glute), OL Bobby Massie (illness) WR Cordarrelle Patterson (triceps) and RB Mike Davis (personal non-injury) practiced in full Friday and did not receive a Week 4 designation.
Chicago Bears RB Mike Davis (personal) missed a second straight practice Thursday, Sept. 26.
Fantasy Spin: Davis hasn't had much of a chance to prove his worth in Chicago following his signing as a free agent this offseason. He's the third most-intriguing option behind Tarik Cohen and David Montgomery and won't warrant consideration unless either of the other two were to miss time.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis is off to a terrible start heading into the team's matchup against the Vikings in Week 4. The team drafted David Montgomery to eventually become the starter but Davis was signed in the offseason to carry the load early on. The honeymoon is already over, going from 11 touches in Week 1 to only four touches combined in the past two games. Davis has not been able to generate anything when the ball is in his hands and has completely disappeared from the Bears offense. Davis is not a fantasy option against a tough Vikings Defense in Week 4.
Chicago Bears RB Mike Davis (personal) didn't practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Fantasy Spin: Davis has just nine carries for 22 yards on the season and is no longer a fantasy consideration out of the Bears' muddy backfield situation.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis has totaled only 37 yards from scrimmage through the first two games of the season. The free agent signee was expected to see more than nine carries through the first two weeks of the season but it appears rookie David Montgomery has already eclipsed him on the depth chart. The veteran backup will face a Redskins Defense in Week 3 has been fairly solid against the run. Davis can be dropped in most formats.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis carried the ball three times for only one yard in the Bears comeback victory over the Broncos in Denver. It has been a frustrating start for Davis, who signed in the offseason after an increased role in Seattle. But he has done nothing with his limited opportunities through two games and rookie David Montgomery seems to have overtaken him as starter. Davis still may have a role in this Bears offense at some point this season but, for now, he can be dropped in most fantasy formats.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis will be looking to get more involved in the offense when the teams takes on the Broncos in Week 2. Davis totaled only 36 yards from scrimmage in the team's Week 1 loss as the offense completely ditched the running game. Davis was on the field for the opening drive making him, for now, the starter in the backfield. But few doubt the talent of rookie David Montgomery and there will come a time when Davis takes on more of a complementary role in the offense. But Davis is still very much in the mix and should see an increase in touches in Week 2 as the Bears will try and run the ball more than the 15 attempts they put up in Week 1.
Chicago Bears RB Mike Davis carried the ball five times for 19 yards and caught six passes for 17 yards in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Spin: The good news: Davis' 11 touches led the team. The bad news: Davis gained all of 36 yards (a measly 3.3 yards per touch). While it certainly appears Chicago's plan is to utilize all three backs, at least early on, Davis' long-term prospects rank well behind backfield mates Tarik Cohen and David Montgomery.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis carried the ball five times for 19 yards and added six receptions for only 17 yards in the team's 10-3 loss to the Packers in Week 1. Davis began the game as the lead back but split time sporadically with teammates Tarik Cohen and David Montgomery. Davis created some moderate games but an anemic offense stifled the running game to find any rhythm. The good news for fantasy owners is that, for now, Davis is a huge part of their offensive game plan. The Bears offense will have a tough test next week against the Broncos in Denver.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis will go up against a Packers Defense that allowed the 14th most fantasy points to opposing running backs last season. Green Bay went out of their way to improve that side of the football but it could take some time to come together. Davis racked up 50 yards from scrimmage on only six touches against the Packers last year in a Seahawks uniform and is looking at a bigger role this season. Much of the training camp buzz has centered around running back David Montgomery but don't expect the rookie to lead the team in touches right off the bat. Enter Davis, who could play a huge role in the early portions of the season. Davis may not put up elite numbers but has a high probability of punching in a touchdown Week 1 this Thursday night.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis has quietly been going about his business and is ready to make an impact in Week 1 against the Packers. Typically, free agent acquisitions come with more fanfare but Davis has flown under the radar. While rookie David Montgomery is getting the fantasy headlines, Davis figures to play a significant role in the offense right out of the gate. The veteran runner could especially be effective in the red zone last season, where he racked up 93 yards on 21 opportunities with four touchdowns last season. The Bears could turn to Davis in short-yardage situations and don't be surprised if he punches in a touchdown in Week 1.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis is enjoying a quiet, workman-like approach to his first training camp with the Bears. Davis did not play a snap in the Bears preseason loss to the Giants but none of the starters came within one yard of the field. Rookie David Montgomery has impressed coaches early on but will have to continue to improve to earn the trust to become a starter. This opens the door for Davis who, in a shared backfield in Seattle last season, ranked 32 among NFL running backs with 21 touches in the red zone. Davis racked up 93 red zone yards last season, more than the Packers Aaron Jones, the Jaguars Leonard Fournette or the Dolphins Kenyan Drake. Davis' current ADP represents great value for a player that should make an impact early on in the regular season.
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis could see a few more carries than the three he racked up last week when the team takes on the Giants Friday. It still is only the second preseason game and Davis was signed in the offseason to make an impact immediately. Davis will be battling for touches in a backfield that features rookie David Montgomery and Tarik Cohen this season. Expect the veteran Davis to get the first crack at the starters job to begin the season and could help fantasy teams right out of the gate. But as the season progresses, buyer beware as Montgomery could ascend,
Chicago Bears running back Mike Davis made his debut with his new team, carrying the ball three times for nine yards in the Bears preseason loss to the Panthers. Davis is expected to play a huge role in the running game right out of the gate so the fact he played so few snaps is to be expected. Davis will carry plenty of early-season fantasy appeal as the Bears figure to lean on his veteran experience while rookie David Montgomery learns the ropes. Fantasy owners should expect Davis to play sparingly the rest of the preseason.
