Totals 536 yards in 2022

Davis caught one of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 11-6 loss to the Dolphins. He finishes the season with 32 catches on 64 targets for 536 yards and two touchdowns.

Analysis: Davis needed just nine games to rack up 34 catches for 492 yards and four touchdowns in 2021. He played four more games in 2022 but had two fewer catches and two fewer touchdowns while totaling only 44 more yards. Rookie first-round pick Garrett Wilson emerged as the go-to option in the Jets' passing game, and the team's poor quarterback play didn't leave room for another receiver to produce consistently. Davis -- who turns 28 on Jan. 11 -- has one more year left on his contract but no guaranteed money.

Three catches in loss

Davis caught three of six targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 23-6 loss to the Seahawks.

Analysis: The Jets' entire offense struggled, and despite his weak numbers Davis wound up leading the entire WR group in yards, although tight end Tyler Conklin was the team's leading receiver overall. Davis has topped 50 yards just once in his last five games, and the team's unsettled quarterback situation will limit his upside in Week 18 against the Dolphins.

Hindered by poor QB play

Davis caught two of seven targets for 14 yards in Thursday's 19-3 loss to the Jaguars.

Analysis: Davis finished second on the team in targets behind Garrett Wilson (nine), but Zach Wilson and Chris Streveler combined to throw for only 182 yards, so none of New York's pass catchers found much success. The veteran wide receiver has shown chemistry with the latter Wilson at times, but with the second-year quarterback regressing, New York's passing game is in shambles. Davis will have limited fantasy appeal against a stingy Seattle secondary in Week 17 unless the Jets get quarterback Mike White (ribs) back.

No injury designation

Davis (concussion) doesn't have an injury designation for Thursday's game against the Jaguars, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Davis apparently has cleared concussion protocol after the Jets listed him as a full participant for walkthrough practices Tuesday and Wednesday. He didn't have a chance to actually practice with the Jets on a short week, but he should see plenty of snaps nonetheless with backup wideouts Denzel Mims (concussion) and Jeff Smith (knee) both ruled out.

Full participant Tuesday

Davis (concussion) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Meanwhile, the two guys that replaced Davis on the perimeter the past couple weeks both missed practice -- Denzel Mims with a concussion and Jeff Smith with a knee injury. While he'll still need to clear concussion protocol officially, Davis is trending toward a return to the starting lineup Thursday night against Jacksonville. The Jets have already announced Zach Wilson as their starting QB for at least one more game while Mike White recovers from a rib injury.

Limited on practice estimate

Davis (concussion) was listed as limited on Monday's practice estimate, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site previous relayed that coach Robert Saleh indicated that he is "very confident" Davis will be cleared ahead of Thursday night's game against the Jaguars. Davis was unable to practice last week before being ruled out ahead of Sunday's loss to the Lions, but at this stage the wideout is trending in the right direction ahead of Week 16 action.

Looking good for Week 16

Coach Robert Saleh said Monday that he's "very confident" Davis (concussion) will be available Thursday versus the Jaguars, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Davis missed Sunday's loss to the Lions while continuing to work his way through the concussion protocol, but the Jets appear optimistic that he will be limited to a one-game absence. Saleh refused to confirm whether Mike White (ribs) will start Thursday if healthy, or if the team will continue to roll with Zach Wilson, per Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record. Fantasy managers will need to monitor who it is that will throw Davis, Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore the ball on Thursday Night Football.

Unavailable Week 15

Davis (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Detroit, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: Davis was unable to practice this week after he suffered a concussion against the Bills, and he'll be sidelined for at least one game. The Jets have a quick turnaround next week with a Thursday game versus the Jaguars, so he's in danger of missing two contests in quick succession. Elijah Moore and Denzel Mims should be more involved Sunday with Davis sidelined, though the Jets' passing attack could take a step back with Zach Wilson starting at quarterback after Mike White (ribs) was ruled out.

Logs another DNP

Davis (concussion) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Back-to-back missed practices cloud Davis' status for Sunday's game against the Lions. If he's unable to gain clearance for the contest, Garrett Wilson, Elijah Moore and Denzel Mims would be in line to lead the Jets' Week 15 wideout corps.

Dec 15, 2022 1:42 PM EST

No practice Wednesday

Davis (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Cimini reiterated Wednesday what coach Robert Saleh indicated Monday, which is that the Jets are hopeful Davis will clear the concussion protocol in time to play against Detroit on Sunday. With one day of practice down Davis will likely need to make some sort of appearance in practice by Friday to have much chance of gaining clearance by Sunday.

Dec 14, 2022 2:41 PM EST

In concussion protocol

Coach Robert Saleh revealed Monday that Davis (head) is in concussion protocol, but the Jets are hopeful he'll be available Sunday against the Lions, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Davis was injured early in Sunday's 20-12 loss to the Bills when a defender kneed him in the head as Davis completed a 15-yard catch. He will need to pass the NFL's five-step concussion protocol to play against the Detroit.

Dec 12, 2022 10:37 AM EST

Exits Sunday's game

Davis (head) won't return to Sunday's game against the Bills.

Analysis: Prior to his exit from the contest, Davis caught his only target for 15 yards. The wideout will now target a potential return to action next weekend against the Lions, though at this stage it's unclear if the head injury that forced Davis out of Sunday's contest will land him in the NFL's concussion protocol.

Dec 11, 2022 10:43 AM EST

Good to go this week

Davis has been cleared to play Sunday against the Bills after returning to a full practice Friday.

Analysis: Davis missed practice Wednesday, was limited Thursday and then was full-go Friday which sets the stage for the wideout to suit up this weekend. In this past Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Vikings, Davis logged an 81 percent snap share en route to catching five of his 10 targets for 85 yards. Against Buffalo, Davis figures to continue to serve as a key cog in the Jets' passing offense alongside top wideout Garrett Wilson, a context that gives Davis -- who has recorded a 25/445/2 stat line on 47 targets in nine games to date -- a degree of Week 14 fantasy utility while working with QB Mike White.

Dec 9, 2022 12:11 PM EST

Limited in return to practice

Davis (illness) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Davis isn't in the clear yet for Sunday's game against the Bills, though the fact that he was back in the field in some capacity Thursday after sitting out the Jets' first Week 14 practice session Wednesday is a positive step. If Davis can upgrade to full participation Friday, he'll likely enter the weekend without an injury designation.

Dec 8, 2022 1:17 PM EST

Back at practice

Davis (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Davis sat out Wednesday's practice, but the wide receiver's return to the field Thursday puts him on track to suit up Sunday against the Bills. The Jets' upcoming practice/injury report will clarify Davis' official participation level.

Dec 8, 2022 9:49 AM EST

Set to miss practice

Davis (illness) won't practice Wednesday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Analysis: Per Al Iannazzone of Newsday, Davis is one of several Jets dealing with the flu at this stage of the week. The wideout has two more chances to practice in advance of Sunday's game against the Bills, but now that he's started the week with a missed session, Davis' Week 14 status in worth tracking. In the Jets' 27-22 loss to the Vikings this past weekend, caught five of his 10 targets for 85 yards.

Dec 7, 2022 9:36 AM EST

Clear WR2 after Wilson in Week 13

Davis caught five of 10 targets for 85 yards in Sunday's 27-22 loss to the Vikings.

Analysis: Davis was the intended receiver on Mike White's first-quarter interception, which came after the ball was tipped up in the air. The veteran wide receiver also failed to come up with the ball on a 4th-and-2 target late in the first half, but he made amends in the fourth quarter, coming down with a contested catch and turning up the field for a 31-yard gain on 4th and 10. Garrett Wilson led the team in both targets (15) and receiving yards (162), but Davis finished second in both categories, and White has shown that he's capable of feeding multiple receivers effectively heading into a Week 14 trip to Buffalo.

Dec 4, 2022 1:51 PM EST

Quiet in return

Davis (knee) caught one of three targets for nine yards in Sunday's 31-10 win over the Bears.

Analysis: Davis was quiet in his first game action since Week 7. He'll likely ramp up his involvement in Week 13 against the Vikings and beyond, as Davis was an integral part of New York's passing game prior to getting hurt. Davis will look to build up his rapport with new quarterback Mike White, who threw two touchdown passes to Garrett Wilson and another to Elijah Moore against Chicago, showing that he's capable of elevating New York's wide receivers, which the benched Zach Wilson rarely did.

Nov 27, 2022 7:44 PM EST

Will return in Week 12

Davis (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bears, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: Davis has practiced fully all week, putting him in position to return for his first action since Week 7. Prior to getting hurt, Davis caught 19 of 34 targets for 351 yards and two touchdowns. He'll be catching passes from Mike White, who will be making his season debut under center in place of the benched Zach Wilson.

Nov 25, 2022 12:49 PM EST

Logs full practice

Davis (knee) practiced fully Wednesday, Rich Cimini of reports.

Analysis: This marks Davis' first practice since Week 7 and barring any setbacks in the coming days, the wideout looks poised to return to action Sunday against the Bears. In that scenario, Davis will be catching passes this weekend from QB Mike White, who's been announced as the Jets' Week 12 starter, replacing Zach Wilson.
