How Titans Corey Davis Could Be a Fantasy Football Steal This Season & What Round Should You Take Him (Video)

Down in Nashville, there’s a 6’2 205 lb. WR who’s preparing to take the league by storm.

The name? None other than Corey Davis. The ex-Western Michigan product is coming into year 3 looking dandy, but not without a boatload of expectations.

Expectations that were placed on him beginning with his first year in the league.

With a bad hamstring combined with clear questionable use of him in the offense, Davis’ rookie year wasn’t close to how he imagined it going. The bad hamstring kept him out of training camp for some time, but still, Davis suited up for week 1 against the soon to be Las Vegas Raiders.

Even coming down with a grab that had many thinking this exact thought. “Could he be the one that ends the purgatory like streak of WRs not working out for the Titans?

That same thought was expressed even more, when he hauled in 2 touchdown grabs against the New England Patriots in the 2017 playoffs.

Including a one handed grab against Malcom Butler, who of course is donning the two tone blue now.

The Titans ended up losing that game 35-14, but nobody knew it would signal the blossoming of Corey Davis. From a rookie plagued by injury, to a clear cut #1 WR.

Year 2 came for Davis, and while he didn’t have a dominant 2nd year, he was by far the best WR on the field weeks 1-16. Davis made play after play, catching eyes as the season went on.

He officially came onto the scene with a dominant performance against the then-defending champion Philadelphia Eagles in week 4.

Davis then capped that off with strong performances against the Jets, Cowboys, and Patriots. Tightening his grip on the title as one of the best young talents in the league.

So after seemingly turning in a good year 2, what’s next for Davis and the Titans? Well, being more consistent would be a great start.

While Davis did have a good year 2, there was a little too much inconsistency throughout the year.


After torching the Patriots for 7 catches and 125 yards against arguably the best corner around in Stephon Gilmore, Davis laid an egg that following week against Indianapolis. Catching only 2 passes for 30 yards in a humiliating blowout loss.

Of course since he’s still a young player in the league, inconsistency is bound to fall upon him. Especially since he’s at a position that demands so much production for modern aerial attacks to work.

Adding in a little more consistency to his game will make his game take off even more.

Especially with the added weapons on the outside in Adam Humphries and AJ Brown. Those 2 will only take pressure off of Davis, allowing him to be matched up 1v1 more.

I’m sure you know what that would equal more of.

Davis is a young player playing in a small market. Even though his play last year was a massive step forward, he didn’t get the recognition he rightfully deserves.

Even in training camp this season, Davis is making plays that are opening more eyes. Even local media have begun to get pretty used to his ridiculous playmaking in practice and throughout the season.

If you haven’t heard of Corey Davis by now, then you best pay attention to this season for the Titans. You can do so because of Marcus Mariota’s final year, but I highly suggest keeping a close eye on #84.

He just might put on a show that you don’t want to miss and he will be a good late round fantasy pick that might end up being WR1-2 value.

If you miss it, well, shame on you.
