Corey Davis: Scores in return from illness

Davis recorded six receptions on 10 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Steelers.

Analysis: Davis was active for his first game since Week 3 against Minnesota after landing on the COVID-19 list. He continued to see a consistent number of targets and now has a total of 29 across four contests. Though he didn't work very efficiently -- he averaged only 3.5 yards per target -- Davis made up for it with a four-yard touchdown catch midway through the second quarter. In Week 8, Davis and the Titans will draw a matchup against the Bengals.

Corey Davis: Comes off COVID-19 list

The Titans activated Davis (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Davis appears set to return from his two-game absence and suit up versus Pittsburgh on Sunday. He had 15 catches for 206 yards and a touchdown in the first three games of the season, but will now have to compete with a healthy A.J. Brown for targets upon returning to the lineup. In a corresponding transaction, Tennessee placed Taylor Lewan (torn ACL) on injured reserve.

Corey Davis: Return imminent

Coach Mike Vrabel said Monday that he expects Davis (illness) to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list "today or [Tuesday]," John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Davis has missed two games during his stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but it looks like he's trending toward a return for Sunday's contest against the Steelers. Once he's officially cleared to return, Davis will resume handling his usual role as the No. 2 wideout behind A.J. Brown.

Corey Davis: Unlikely to play Tuesday

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill acknowledged Saturday that Davis likely won't be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list for Tuesday's game against the Bills, Kyle Tucker of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Davis could still be activated before the Week 5 showdown, but with the altered Tuesday schedule, fantasy managers may not know if Davis will be available until hours before the game. As a result, they should make other plans to fill their wide receiver position. Managers that are willing to wait it out should find a pivot like Kalif Raymond, who's expected to start at wideout for the Titans opposite A.J. Brown (knee), to plug into their lineup if Davis is indeed ruled out.

Corey Davis: Lands on COVID-19 list

Davis has been placed on the Titans' Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Analysis: Fellow wide receiver Adam Humphries is among the team's other players on the list and at this time it's uncertain whether the Titans' scheduled game against the Bills on Sunday will proceed as planned.

Corey Davis: Continues to lead way

Davis recorded five receptions on six targets for 69 yards in Week 3 against the Vikings.

Analysis: Despite finishing second on the team in targets, Davis led the team in receiving yards in the continued absence of A.J. Brown (knee). The majority of his production came on a 38-yard reception that ultimately set up a one-yard rushing score for Derrick Henry late in the third quarter. Davis may be heading towards a fourth year breakout -- he has 206 yards and a touchdown across three games -- if Brown remains sidelined for future contests.

Corey Davis: Reaches endzone against Jags

Davis caught three of his five targets for 36 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 33-30 win against the Jaguars.

Analysis: With A.J. Brown (knee) ruled out for Week 2, Davis tied Jonnu Smith for second on the team in targets in what was a balanced passing attack for Tennessee. The Titans characteristically ran the ball 34 times Sunday, while five different Titans posted at least two catches on Ryan Tannehill's 18 completions. Davis is off to an encouraging start to the campaign with 10 catches and 137 receiving yards through his first two outings, and Week 3 presents an enticing matchup as he goes up against a Vikings defense that has already allowed four different pass-catchers to go for 60-plus receiving yards this season.

Corey Davis: Gearing up for Week 2

Davis (hamstring) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have a designation for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: After progressing from Wednesday's DNP to Friday's uncapped session, Davis is ready to roll for Week 2, when the Titans will be without No. 1 wide receiver A.J. Brown (knee). Thus, Davis has a great shot to replicate his standout performance from the team's season-opening win at Denver, in which he hauled in seven of eight targets for 101 yards.

September 18, 2020 12:07 PM EST

Corey Davis: Turns in limited practice

Davis (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Analysis: Davis was withheld from Wednesday's session, the Titans' first practice since he led the team with seven receptions for 101 yards in Monday's 16-14 win over the Broncos. Though he picked up a hamstring injury along the way, Davis' ability to get back on the field in some capacity Thursday is encouraging, though Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean notes that the receiver was sporting a protective sleeve over his right leg during the practice. If Davis is able to advance to full work in Friday's practice, fantasy managers would likely feel good about his condition heading into the Titans' Week 2 game against Jacksonville.

Corey Davis: Dealing with hamstring issue

Davis (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis was initially listed as questionable for Monday's win against the Broncos due to his hamstring injury, and he still managed to rack up an outstanding seven catches for 101 yards. As long as Davis is able to resume practicing Thursday, there won't be any real reason to worry about his status for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. If he's indeed cleared to suit up against Jacksonville, Davis will get a prime opportunity to keep up his momentum versus an inexperienced secondary.

September 16, 2020 2:21 PM EST

Corey Davis: Not seen on practice field

Davis is not on the field for the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Analysis: Davis could just be taking a rest day coming off an encouraging 101-yard performance during Monday's win over Denver. Count on the Titans' first practice report of the week, which will be released later Wednesday, to disclose the official extent of Davis' participation. Position mate A.J. Brown was also not spotted during the early portion of practice.

Corey Davis: Huge Week 1 against Denver

Davis caught seven of eight targets for 101 receiving yards during Monday's 16-14 win against the Broncos.

Analysis: There is buzz surrounding promising young wide receivers each fantasy draft season, hypothesizing about which players may achieve the trademark "third-year breakout" so common to the position. Davis is attempting to achieve the unorthodox fourth-year breakout, and given that he had top-five overall talent coming out of Western Michigan in 2017, he may just defy the odds. Davis attracted a middling target share last year as A.J. Brown posted a historic rookie campaign, garnering fewer than five targets per game en route to a 601-yard, two-touchdown season. In collecting eight targets Week 1 Davis surpassed all of his single-game totals from 2019, while also eclipsing 100 receiving yards for the first time since Nov. 11, 2018. He now readies for a Week 2 matchup against division rival Jacksonville, an opponent against which he only generated four catches and 55 yards across two appearances last year.

Corey Davis: Playing Week 1

Davis (hamstring) is active for Monday's game in Denver, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Davis followed an LP/FP/FP practice regimen this week, but the Titans still placed a questionable tag on the fourth-year receiver. Now that he's deemed available, he'll serve in his customary No. 2 wide receiver role behind fellow starter A.J. Brown.

September 14, 2020 6:03 PM EST

Corey Davis: Set to play Monday

Davis (hamstring) is expected to suit up Monday at Denver, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Analysis: After starting Week 1 prep with a limited session, Davis wrapped it up with back-to-back full practices but still received a questionable designation. Per Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site, Davis went through a pregame workout, during which he must have fared well enough to get the all-clear for the season opener. The team will make the decision official about 90 minutes before Monday's 10:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

September 14, 2020 5:18 PM EST

Corey Davis: Still questionable, practices fully

Davis (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis practiced fully both Friday and Saturday so it seems like a merely formality the 2017 first-round pick will be active for the team's opener. Expect Davis to work in tandem with 2020 breakout wide receiver, A.J. Brown, in Monday's extra late-night matchup against the Broncos.

September 12, 2020 12:48 PM EST

Corey Davis: Good to go

Davis (hamstring) practiced fully Friday. Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis was limited on Thursday, but now that he's practicing fully, the wideout is slated to start opposite top option A.J. Brown in Monday night's season opener against the Broncos. Davis' performance last year (43/601/2 in 15 games) relative to where he was drafted -- No. 5 overall in 2017 -- was disappointing, but the 6-foot-3, 209-pounder has plenty of untapped potential if he can bring more consistency to his game in 2020.

September 11, 2020 2:59 PM EST

Corey Davis: Logs limited practice

Davis (hamstring) was limited at practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: We'll have to see if Davis upgrades to full participation in advance of Monday night's game against the Broncos, but John Glennon of The Athletic isn't surprised to see the wideout's name on the Titans' initial injury report. Per Glennon, Davis' hamstring "seems to nag at him at least a few weeks of every season." Assuming he's a go in Week 1, Davis is slated to start opposite top option A.J. Brown, who heads into the team's opener minus an injury designation.

September 10, 2020 1:13 PM EST

Corey Davis: Ready for contract season

Davis has put his offseason surgery behind him and is ready to earn his second contract, Cory Curtis of WKRN.com reports.

Analysis: Davis was in the spotlight this offseason when his fifth-year option was declined by the Titans. However, he's ready to move forward, as he's proven to be healthy since offseason toe surgery. Barring any setbacks, Davis should be ready for regular season action, but will likely work behind second-year receiver A.J. Brown for targets.

August 19, 2020 7:10 PM EST

Corey Davis: Continues to impress

Davis (toe) looked explosive and made a number of catches during 7-on-7 drills Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis participated in his first practice Monday and was on the field again Tuesday. It was noted that he continued to look good physically, while also flashing some explosive playmaking ability. His availability on back-to-back days and participation in 7-on-7 drills continues to be a positive sign for his availability to begin the regular season.

August 18, 2020 7:24 PM EST

Corey Davis: Looks healthy in first practice

Davis (toe) looked healthy in his first practice of the season, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis was activated off the PUP list prior to Monday's practice, the Titans first in full pads. He didn't receive many targets, but was credited with a nice diving catch on a pass delivered by Logan Woodside. Most importantly, it was reported that he looked fine running routes, a promising note for his availability to begin the regular season.
