Davis took a pretty good step forward in year two, emerging as the top target in the Titans passing game. He had 65 receptions for 891 yards and four touchdowns, finishing 31st overall in fantasy receiver scoring. A healthy Marcus Mariota all season would have helped the production of Davis, who was better earlier in the season before Mariota got banged up. Davis had five straight games with fewer than 50 yards to end his season. He had two 100-yard games on the year, though, and at least three receptions 12 of 16 games. Davis will continue to be the top target in this offense. Davis has good size for the position and does a great job of getting in and out of his breaks. He also is a top athlete that can stretch the field and be a tough cover at receiver because of his size and strength. He will drop some passes, though, and has endured a few consistency issues to start his career.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Davis is an emerging fantasy receiver. He can build on last year, especially if Mariota can stay healthy. It would not surprise to see him get his first 1,000-yard season and finish as a No. 2 fantasy receiver. He has a high ceiling.
2019 is the year for Corey Davis to have his breakout. No, I am not saying it will happen. But if it doesnt it will be time to pull the plug on your love for him. It is true he has not had the best quarterback in Marcus Mariota to help his fantasy status but there are a number of talented receivers in the same situations who have overcome this to produce in the NFL. Larry Fitzgerald in Arizona immediately comes to mind. The Titans were in a perfect position for him to excel last season after the loss of Delanie Walker in Week 1 and while he had flashes, he still ultimately disappointed.With 65 receptions for 891 yards and four touchdowns, Davis did take a big step forward in 2018. The four touchdowns were in fact the first four of his NFL career, but this is not good enough for a WR1 on a team unless there are a lot of other players needing to be fed. This is clearly not the case with the Titans so this simply will not do. With Walker coming back and rookie draft pick A.J. Brown coming in from Ole Miss there should be more passing this season than in any other season he has been there. The question is how many targets will there be for Davis, in an offense with plenty of mouths to feed now. Derek Henry finally getting the run work he needs to be effective should help wear down defenses while also keeping them honest, thus by opening up the downfield for Davis to do his work.The real key to Corey Davis in 2019? His value. Whereas he was drafted in the fourth or fifth round in 2018, the shine is off of him now and he has fallen into the ninth round as WR41 in fantasy drafts. Whether he grows as a receiver this season or stays stagnant with the mediocre numbers he had last season, he should still be far better than the WR41. In fact, with these numbers last season he finished as the WR27 making this great value for Davis at his current ADP. At a point in drafts where most will be looking at a third or fourth running back, you could be getting a potential top-30 receiver as perhaps your WR4/5. If you decide to load up on high caliber running backs early? He could be a great WR3 for you so late in drafts. Mariota should be healthier this season, but if not, the Titans will turn to Ryan Tannehill. Mariota started to build a connection with Davis last season so this would be just fine. But if it does become the Tannehill show. There is one thing we know. He loves to lock on to one player and that player will likely be Davis. At this price, he is worth the risk. So, take it.

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis caught six of his seven targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in a 23-20 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8.
Fantasy Spin: It is only one game, but maybe the move to Ryan Tannehill at quarterback will bring out the best in Davis. If he was cut loose in your league after a sluggish start, he's worth scooping up.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis came to life in the team's 23-20 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 7. Davis caught six of seven targets for 80 yards and a touchdown. This was his second best performance of the season, and new starter Ryan Tannehill looked much more confident throwing the ball down the field. The new-look offense under Tannehill should lead to more opportunities for all of the receiving options in this offense going forward, moving Davis back towards WR3 territory for the time being. Davis is also an intriguing buy low option in dynasty formats.
To say Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis has been underwhelming this year might be an understatement, but there is a slight glimmer of hope for his rest of season outlook with new quarterback Ryan Tannehill under center. Davis caught three passes for 36 yards in just over a quarter last week upon Tannehill's insertion into the game, after having caught zero passes up to that point. If Tannehill is able to give the Titans offense some life going forward, Davis may begin to creep back into fantasy relevance. However, in a week where the Titans face a Chargers Defense allowing the sixth-least fantasy points to opposing receivers, Davis is nothing more than a bench stash.
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis pulled in three receptions for 36 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos.
Fantasy Spin: Davis had another marginal game, posting 44 or fewer yards for the fifth time in six outings. He has found the end zone just once, too. Treat him as a low-end WR5 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Titans host the Chargers in Week 7.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis was quiet once again in the 16-0 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 6. Davis caught three of his five targets for 36 yards on Sunday. Davis has put together one good game all season and is making it difficult on fantasy owners to even trust him. The Titans have struggled to get their receivers the ball and that will likely continue. Fantasy owners should consider Davis a low-end flex option for Week 7 versus the Chargers.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis has not seen the third-year jump that many expected up to this point in the season, catching just 13 of 22 targets for 201 yards and a touchdown. Davis has been overshadowed by rookie receiver A.J. Brown, who is leading the team in both receiving yards and touchdowns. Davis is starting to look like nothing more than a secondary option in a low volume passing offense, rendering him rather useless in fantasy formats for the time being.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis was quiet in Week 5, finishing with just two catches for 28 yards in the loss to the Bills. This has been the norm for the 24-year-old throughout the season as he has only 13 receptions (22 targets) for 201 yards and a score after having a decent 2018 campaign. Davis shouldn't be owned in a majority of fantasy leagues this season, but if you are desperate or an injury occurs, he may produce at some point. Don't hold your breath for production anytime soon, however.
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis caught two passes for 28 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5. He was targeted four times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Davis was coming off an outstanding Week 4 performance but was held to under 50 yards for the four times in five games. He has shown that he can play well at times but does not post consistent weekly numbers. He has a chance to be a flex option next week.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis finally made an impact in the box score in the team's Week 4 win against the Atlanta Falcons, catching five of a team-leading six targets for 91 yards and his first touchdown of the season. It looked like the passing game was finally able to click for quarterback Marcus Mariota and his receivers for the first time since Week 1. While this is good news for Davis, temper expectations in Week 5 as the Buffalo Bills visit Nashville. Davis will likely remain a headache for fantasy owners due to the inconsistency of the offense as a whole.
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis caught five passes for 91 yards and one touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. He was targeted six times during the game.
Fantasy Spin: Davis had a disappointing start to the season but had a breakout game this week. He could see more targets after his strong game and could be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next week.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis has gotten off to a disappointing start to the 2019 season. The ultra talented Davis has just not been able to put it all together yet, catching six of his 12 targets this season for 82 yards. Despite seeing solid volume a season ago, Davis is now just tied for third on the team in targets. It appears the offseason additions of Adam Humphries and A.J. Brown coupled with Delanie Walker's return have put a major dent in the target share for Davis. If he is unable to produce this week, it may be time to drop Davis for more productive options at the position.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis caught three passes (four targets) for 44 yards during the loss to Jacksonville in Week 3. Davis, along with the rest of the team, couldn't get anything going on Thursday as the Jaguars Defense smothered quarterback Marcus Mariota by compiling nine sacks on the night. At the moment, the 24-year-old has relatively no value in all fantasy formats until he starts producing, which is something that likely won't happen anytime soon.
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis had three receptions (on four targets) for 44 yards in the team's Week 3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Spin: Coming off an encouraging Year 2, the former fifth overall pick was a popular breakout candidate entering the 2019 campaign. Through three games this season Davis is on pace for 32 catches and 437 yards. Those are dismal numbers, not worthy of a roster spot in most leagues. If you can't bring yourself to cut bait on Davis just yet, at least keep him glued to your bench until he actually posts decent numbers.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis struggled to get going once again in the team's 19-17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Davis was able to haul in three of his five targets, but only turned them into 38 yards. It appears that new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith is very content with riding the running game and spreading the ball around in the passing game, which is bad news for Davis owners. Davis, who remained relevant a season ago solely due to his elite volume, appears to be an afterthought this season for fantasy. In deep leagues, he may be worth a hold for one more week, but don't hesitate to drop him for a more promising player in shallow leagues.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis is not a recommended fantasy option in Week 2 coming off of a game where he caught zero of three targets. Although Davis did have a tough cornerback matchup a week ago, the Titans willingness to look elsewhere in the passing game does not bode well for the young wide receiver's prospects at being a consistent fantasy contributor this season. The low-volume passing attack of the Titans coupled with the possible emergence of rookie wide receiver A.J. Brown will likely continue to hinder any chance at a third-year breakout for Davis, who will be a droppable asset if he puts up another dud in Week 2.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis was held without a catch on three targets in the team's 43-13 blowout win over the Cleveland Browns. Despite a productive day for the offense, Davis was a complete no show. This is the worst possible start to the 2019 season for Davis owners, as tight end Delanie Walker and rookie receiver A.J. Brown appeared to be the preferred targets of quarterback Marcus Mariota. There is nothing to do but hold Davis and hope that he gets back on track next week at home against the Indianapolis Colts.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis is shaping up as a low-end flex option in the Week 1 matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Davis, who opens 2019 as the locked-in WR1 for the Titans, is coming off of a very solid camp going into his third season. The offense desperately needs Davis to take that next step to get to where they want to be this season. He should have ample opportunity this week against the Browns, who project to be one of the league's most explosive offenses. The Titans will likely be forced to throw the ball more than usual in this matchup, which bodes very well for Davis owners in Week 1.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis caught one pass for 25 yards in the team's Week 3 preseason matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Davis was able to create separation on many of his routes, but his production was limited by both bad blocking and ineffective quarterback play. The 2019 fantasy value of Davis rests directly on the ability of quarterback Marcus Mariota to both stay healthy and perform consistently. With his talent, the ceiling is a fantasy WR1 season, but the floor is much lower than many owners are willing to risk.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis has been named the training camp MVP by ESPN's Turron Davenport following an excellent offseason. Davenport praised Davis for his improved route running and footwork, both of which have helped him gain extra separation throughout camp. Although many fantasy owners have already written Davis off, some context is needed when analyzing his second year. Davis posted a team-leading 65 receptions for 891 yards and four touchdowns all while playing with a quarterback who had nerve damage in his throwing hand. On top of this, Davis lined up against top-25 corners on 43 percent of his routes, the highest percentage of any receiver in the league. Davis should benefit greatly in 2019 from both better quarterback play and an upgraded surrounding cast, making him a prime post-hype sleeper buy going into his third season.
Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis (undisclosed) did not participate in team drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 11.
Fantasy Spin: Davis does not need much playing time during the preseason, so he has several weeks to recover from his injury. He will be the main option in the passing game for Tennessee and can be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
