Injures shoulder at OTAs

Davis injured his shoulder during Thursday's practice, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The Jets believe it's only a minor shoulder strain, though they did send scans to Dr. James Andrews for further evaluation. Davis signed a three-year, $37.5 million contract in March, after putting up career highs for receiving yards (984) and touchdowns (five) in his fourth and final season with the Titans. The Jets believe their new wideout will recover with rest, hopefully making it back for the start of training camp to start building chemistry with rookie QB Zach Wilson.

Joins forces with Jets

The Jets and Davis agreed to terms on a three-year, $37.5 million contract Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: As the first day of the legal tampering period has gone on, the wide receiver market is starting to be plucked, with Davis the newest player to find a new home. He's coming off a career season almost across the board after putting up 65 catches (on 92 targets) for 984 yards and five touchdowns. With 39 catches of 20-plus yards over the last three campaigns, Davis is set to take over the role of depth threat in the Jets offense from Breshad Perriman, who currently is an unrestricted free agent.

Hitting open market

Davis and TE Jonnu Smith are aware the Titans don't plan to re-sign them, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Analysis: This appears to be a more definitive version of a sentiment that's been building throughout the offseason. The Titans will build their offense around Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown, while Davis and Smith will search for new teams in free agency.

Silent in playoff loss

Davis did not record a catch on two targets in the Titans' wild card loss to the Ravens.

Analysis: Davis had a bounceback season, but will end the campaign on a disappointing note. John Glennon of reported that Davis was unavailable towards the end of the contest, after he was seen on the sideline without his helmet. No further details have been released in the immediate aftermath of the game. Once the offseason formally begins, Davis will become a free agent for the first time coming off the best statistical campaign of his career.

Struggles with drops in win

Davis caught five of 11 targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 41-38 win over the Texans.

Analysis: He tied A.J. Brown for the team lead in targets, but Davis appeared to be fighting the ball all day and dropped at least three very catchable balls. As a result, the 25-year-old came up short of his first career 1,000-yard campaign after coming into the game needing only 55 more yards. Davis will try to regain his focus before next Sunday's wild-card round clash with the Ravens.

Goes without catch Week 16

Davis failed to corral either of his two targets Sunday in the Titans' 40-14 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Though Davis played 45 of 55 offensive snaps (82 percent) while the Titans trailed for most of the night, he didn't benefit from what normally would have been a pass-happy game script. Due to the snowy conditions and slick field in Green Bay, the Titans opted for a nearly even pass-run split (28-27), leaving few targets to go around for any member of the pass-catching corps. As a result, Davis was held without a catch for the second time this season, the only blemishes on what has otherwise been a breakout campaign for the fourth-year wideout. With 945 receiving yards on the season, Davis will still have a fair shot at cracking 1,000 when he takes on a vulnerable Houston secondary in the Titans' regular-season finale Jan. 3.

Scores long touchdown

Davis recorded four receptions on six targets for 110 yards and a touchdown in Week 15 against the Lions.

Analysis: Davis jump-started the Titans' offense with a 75-yard touchdown down the left sideline late in the first quarter. That accounted for the majority of his production, though he was also able to tack on a pair of additional 14-yard receptions. Overall, Davis turned in a nice bounceback effort after flopping for a 34-yard performance in Week 14. He'll look put together another 100-yard effort in Week 16 against Green Bay.

Can't follow up on dominant effort

Davis recorded three receptions on three targets for 34 yards in Week 14 against the Jaguars.

Analysis: The Titans attempted only 24 passes, yet pounded the Jaguars for 40 rushing attempts. That led to a low-target total for Davis, who finished tied for second on the team with three targets. While it's always a risk that Derrick Henry will take over a game, Davis should be in line for a bump in targets in Week 15 against the Lions.

Erupts against Browns

Davis recorded 11 receptions on 12 targets for 182 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Browns.

Analysis: Davis was one of the few bright spots for the Titans as their offense failed to get going besides his individual effort. He delivered several splash plays, including six receptions of 15 yards or greater. Among the highlights were a 43-yard reception on the Titans' first offensive possession of the second half in which he beat the Browns zone coverage crossing the middle of the field. He also found the end zone for the first time since Week 8, recording a 17-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter. With A.J. Brown and Derrick Henry requiring the majority of opposing defenses' attention, Davis has managed to emerge as a big-play threat for the Titans. He's also managed to produce relatively consistently, surpassing 65 yards in each of his last four contests.

Makes most of three targets

Davis recorded three receptions on three targets for 70 yards in Week 12 against the Colts.

Analysis: Davis matched his lowest target total of the season as the Titans threw only seven passes in the second half. Even so, he ripped off long receptions of 37 and 21 yards prior to halftime to make the most of his opportunities. Prior to this contest, Davis had seen at least six targets in four of five games, so he could see more volume once again in Week 13 against the Browns.

Tops 100 yards

Davis recorded five receptions on seven targets for 113 yards in Week 11 against the Ravens.

Analysis: Davis tied for the team lead with seven targets, but was by far the most efficient receiver for Tennessee. Despite being held without a catch in the first half, Davis topped 100 receiving yards for the third time in the campaign. The majority of his production came on his first catch of the contest -- a 50-yard reception halfway through the third quarter when he beat the Ravens' secondary over the top. From there, Davis continued to play a key role in the Titans' comeback effort, tacking on additional receptions of 22 and 14 yards. Davis has surprisingly forced a near even split of targets with A.J. Brown, which should give him a solid chance of producing in Week 12 against the Colts.

Bounces back from catch-less game

Davis brought in five of six targets for 67 yards in the Titans' 34-17 loss to the Colts on Thursday night.

Analysis: Davis paced the Titans in receptions and receiving yards while tying Jonnu Smith for the team lead in targets, bouncing back from being blanked on the stat sheet by the Bears just four days earlier. The 2017 first-round pick was coming off an eight-catch, 128-yard, one-touchdown game against the Bengals the week before the contest against Chicago, so Thursday night's solid numbers were much more the norm for Davis, who now has at least five catches in five contests this season. He'll look to make similar or better contributions in a Week 11 battle versus the Ravens on Sunday, Nov. 22.

Nov 12, 2020 9:16 PM EST

Shut out in Week 9

Davis recorded zero receptions on three targets in Week 9 against the Bears.

Analysis: Davis saw a season-low three targets and failed to produce anything with the limited opportunity. The lack of production was in part due to game script -- Ryan Tannehill threw only 21 passes -- but both Jonnu Smith and A.J. Brown found ways to come through with decent stat lines. While the performance was certainly a setback for Davis, he has either a touchdown or 100 receiving yards in four of his seven contests this season. He'll look to get back on track in 10 against the Colts.

Thrives in loss to Bengals

Davis caught eight of 10 targets for 128 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-20 loss to the Bengals.

Analysis: Davis led the team in targets, catches and receiving yards while finding the end zone in the fourth quarter. He broke off a long gain of 27 yards and consistently got open downfield as he averaged 16.0 yards per catch. Davis has now caught 14 of 20 targets for 163 yards and two touchdowns over the last two games and is thriving with teammate A.J. Brown working across from him. He will look to continue his strong play in a difficult matchup against the Bears next Sunday.

Nov 1, 2020 2:38 PM EST

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.

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.

Oct 19, 2020 1:23 PM EST

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.

Oct 19, 2020 10:52 AM EST

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.

Oct 10, 2020 5:53 PM EST

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.

Oct 7, 2020 1:12 PM EST

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.
