1. Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans
While you were watching Derek Henry and A.J. Brown, Davis caught all three of his targets for 70 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 12. He has more than 65 yards in three straight games, in tough matchups. Going back to his last six games, since coming off the COVID-19 list, he has scored or topped 65 yards five times in that span. The one left over was a zero-catch effort in Week 9 against the Chicago Bears, and Davis is still a solid WR20 in full PPR since Week 7 (WR17 in standard scoring).
In Week 13-Week 15, the Titans will face the Cleveland Browns, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Detroit Lions. All three are bottom-10 fantasy defenses against wide receivers (Yahoo!, 0.5-point PPR), with across the board generosity in catches, yards and touchdowns. Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers is a tougher matchup, but Ryan Tannehill may be pushed into ample passing volume in that game.
If not for that stint on the COVID list, we would have an easier time seeing Davis’ solid breakthrough this year. He had at least 69 yards or scored in each of his first three games this season, before he was part of the Titans’ virus situation.
Davis stretches just past the being 50 percent available threshold to be a waiver wire add. But he is absolutely under-owned. Fuller owners, or even non-Fuller owners, should be looking at him hard on the waiver wire this week.
