Corey Davis: Fifth-year option declined

Davis' fifth-year option was not picked up by the Titans, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The former No.5 pick overall has had a rocky start to his career and will now be eligible to hit free agency after the 2020 season. Davis was surpassed by rookie A.J. Brown as the lead dog in the Titans' passing game in 2019 and his targets plummeted from 112 in 2018 to just 69. The Titans declining Davis' fifth-year option doesn't preclude them from working out a new contract next offseason, but it is a statement that the former Western Michigan receiver needs to get things turned around in a hurry.

Corey Davis: Chance to maintain role in offense

Davis will likely remain the Titans' second receiver after the team failed to meaningfully add to the receiving corps in the draft.

Analysis: Davis is likely in his final season with the Titans, but he should retain a regular role in the offense in 2020. The team failed to add any receiving options in free agency or the draft, leaving Davis as a starting outside receiver in two-receiver sets. He'll be looking to bounceback from a disappointing 2019 campaign, though he'll still have to compete for targets with A.J. Brown and Adam Humphries.

Corey Davis: Not expected to receive option

Davis isn't likely to have the fifth-year option on his rookie contract picked up, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The option would cost approximately $15.8 million for a wide receiver, and while it's guaranteed for injury only, the Titans would be taking a big risk using it on a player with a career average of 44.5 receiving yards per game. Davis did finish 2019 with career highs for catch rate (62.3 percent) and yards per target (8.7), but he saw 43 fewer targets than he had in 2018, with the Titans offense running through Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown. Assuming the option isn't picked up, the 25-year-old wideout will be in the final season of his rookie contract in 2020.

Corey Davis: Leads team in receptions

Davis hauled in five of his eight targets for 65 yards in the team's AFC Championship game loss.

Analysis: Davis led the team in receptions and receiving yards, posting one of his better lines of the season. Three of his five catches went for 15 or more yards, including a pair in the fourth quarter. It was a fairly strong end to a disappointing campaign for Davis, as he was surpassed as the team's top receiver by rookie A.J. Brown. Davis will look to get back on track this offseason as he heads into the final guaranteed season of his rookie deal.

Corey Davis: Scores on trick play in upset

Davis secured one of two targets for a three-yard touchdown in the Titans' 28-12 divisional-round win over the Ravens on Saturday.

Analysis: Davis' one reception was a memorable one, as he was on the receiving end of a nifty Derrick Henry jump touchdown pass just past the midway point of the third quarter. That extended the Titans' lead back to two possessions after the Ravens had seemingly built momentum at the end of the first half. Davis' minuscule involvement is naturally far from ideal from a fantasy perspective, but on a night when Ryan Tannehill completed just seven passes, the one grab doesn't look as unsightly. Davis will look to make an even bigger impact in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus either the Texans or Chiefs.

Corey Davis: Records four reception

Davis hauled in four of his five targets for 44 yards in the team's Week 17 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Davis finished second on the team in receptions, targets and yards, though he was again outshined by A.J. Brown. He came closer to a bigger day, but had a touchdown called back to be placed at the one-yard line after review. Overall, Davis had a hard time getting on track this season, surpassing five targets in a game on only four occasions. He's been surpassed by Brown as Ryan Tannehill's top receiver, but will almost certainly be back in Tennessee in 2020 with one year still remaining on his rookie deal. For now, Davis' focus will be on the team's first round playoff matchup against New England.

Corey Davis: Cleared to play Sunday

Davis (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Analysis: Back-to-back full practices and full medical clearance set the stage for Davis to suit up Sunday in what amounts to a win-and-in playoff scenario for the Titans. Though Davis has been overshadowed by fellow wideout A.J. Brown this season, he's still maintained a degree of PPR utility to date, while compiling a 39/557/2 stat line through 14 contests.

December 27, 2019 1:56 PM EST

Corey Davis: Practices fully Thursday

Davis (concussion) was listed as a full practice participant Thursday.

Analysis: Davis was listed as limited on Wednesday's estimated practice report, so his upgrade to a full session Thursday bodes well for his availability for Sunday's game against the Texans. We'll circle back on Davis' status Friday to see if he gains full medical clearance in advance of the weekend or is listed as questionable on Tennessee's final Week 17 injury report.

December 26, 2019 2:52 PM EST

Corey Davis: Listed as limited Wednesday

Davis (concussion) was listed as limited on Wednesday's practice estimate, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Davis will look to clear the NFL's concussion protocol in advance of Sunday's game against the Texans, but if he doesn't get there, . A.J. Brown and Tajae Sharpe would profile as Tennessee's top healthy options at receiver this weekend.

December 25, 2019 3:00 PM EST

Corey Davis: Concussion confirmed

Coach Mike Vrabel confirmed Monday that Davis is being evaluated under the NFL's concussion protocol, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Davis exited Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Saints with the head injury, finishing the day with three catches for 40 yards on four targets. The third-year receiver will need to clear all five phases of the protocol this week in order to get the green light for the Dec. 29 regular-season finale in Houston. A.J. Brown and Tajae Sharpe would operate as Tennessee's clear top options at receiver if both Davis and Adam Humphries (ankle) aren't able to make it back in action by the weekend.

December 23, 2019 10:03 AM EST

Corey Davis: Exits Sunday's game

Davis was forced out of Sunday's game against the Saints with a possible concussion, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: Prior to his exit, Davis hauled in three of his four targets for 40 yards. In his absence, added opportunities are available for Kalif Raymond and Tajae Sharpe.

December 22, 2019 1:13 PM EST

Corey Davis: Good to go for Week 16

Davis (ankle) doesn't carry a designation into Sunday's game versus the Saints, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Listed as a limited participant on the Titans' first two Week 16 injury reports, Davis logged a full session Friday, clearing him to go against a New Orleans defense that has given up 175.9 yards per game and 16 touchdowns to wide receivers in 14 contests this season.

December 20, 2019 12:08 PM EST

Corey Davis: Maintains limited participation

Davis (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis' practice activity represents no change from Wednesday, but the fact that he was on the field for back-to-back days should give him a good chance at playing Sunday against the Saints. He'll look to advance to full participation Friday in the Titans' final session of the week, which would likely allow him to head into the matchup with New Orleans minus an injury designation.

December 19, 2019 1:37 PM EST

Corey Davis: Listed as limited Wednesday

Davis (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: We'll circle back on the status of Davis -- who caught three of his six targets for 57 yards in Week 15's loss to the Texans -- come Thursday, but so far there's nothing to suggest that the wideout is in danger of sitting out Sunday's game against the Saints.

December 18, 2019 12:45 PM EST

Corey Davis: Three catches during Week 15 loss

Davis corralled three of six targets for 57 receiving yards during Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Texans.

Analysis: The 24-year-old wideout has now been held out of the end zone in each of his past six outings, and he is averaging fewer than 35 receiving yards per game since Week 8. Rookie A.J. Brown more than doubled Davis' target share Week 15, and he has garnered more targets than Davis in each of their past five mutual appearances. Davis is a risky proposition in the late stages of the fantasy season, even with a favorable Week 16 matchup forthcoming against the Saints' bottom-half pass defense.

December 15, 2019 3:25 PM EST

Corey Davis: Two receptions

Davis hauled in two of his four targets for 34 yards in the team's Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Davis was limited to a minimal role in the Titans' offense once again, with his biggest contribution coming on a 24-yard reception halfway through the second quarter. However, he was overshadowed by rookie A.J. Brown once again, while also being out produced by the likes of Tajae Sharpe and Jonnu Smith. Davis is in the midst of another disappointing season and has shown little reason to expect a breakthrough, even in a positive matchup against the Texans in Week 15.

December 8, 2019 8:54 PM EST

Corey Davis: Fades further

Davis hauled in one of two targets for 23 yards in the team's Week 13 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Davis continued his mystifying fall in the Titans' offense, being out-targeted by the likes of Cody Hollister and Anthony Firkser. Though he has long possessed a tantalizing profile for production, it appears that Davis won't have the chance to break out as a Titan. For the season, he has just 31 receptions for 426 yards and has failed to record at least three receptions in three of his past four games.

December 1, 2019 10:11 PM EST

Corey Davis: Only two catches

Davis hauled in two of his three targets for 29 yards in the team's Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Davis continues to fade into the background of the Titans' passing attack, as A.J. Brown exploded for a big performance in the win. Davis' three targets matched his fewest of the season, though he's now failed to surpass 30 receiving yards in four of his 10 games. While he's shown brief flashes of promise, Davis doesn't see enough volume to turn in consistent performances. On the other hand, he will draw a plus matchup against the Dolphins in Week 13, so he could be in for a boom performance.

November 24, 2019 6:04 PM EST

Corey Davis: Good to go this week

Davis (hip) will play Sunday against the Jaguars after practicing fully this week, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis sat out the Titans' Week 10 win over the Chiefs, but the team's Week 11 bye afforded the wideout enough time to ready himself for a return to action Sunday. Nine games into his 2019 campaign, Davis - who has scored two TDs in that span -- is averaging 3.1 catches and 41.6 receiving yards. As long as he avoids any injury setbacks down the stretch, Davis has a fairly stable fantasy floor, but his ceiling is capped by the modest volume (45 targets to date) he sees in the Titans' Ryan Tannehill-helmed passing attack.

November 22, 2019 3:17 PM EST

Corey Davis: Practices without limitations

Davis (hip) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: Davis missed Week 10's tilt against the Chiefs due to a hip injury, but he now appears back to full health coming off Tennessee's bye. Barring any setbacks, expect Davis to play his usual role in the Titans' aerial attack during Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars.
