Corey Davis: 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 BroadwaySportsMedia.com 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.

Corey Davis: 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.

Corey Davis: 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.

Corey Davis: 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.

Corey Davis: 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.

Corey Davis: 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.

Corey Davis: 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.

Corey Davis: 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.

Corey Davis: 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.

November 12, 2020 9:16 PM EST

Corey Davis: 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.

Corey Davis: 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.

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.

October 19, 2020 1:23 PM EST

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.

October 10, 2020 5:53 PM EST

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.

October 7, 2020 1:12 PM EST

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.

September 27, 2020 8:10 PM EST

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.

September 20, 2020 5:36 PM EST

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.
