The Lions released Davis on Tuesday.
Analysis: Davis was a longshot to make the roster since all three starting wide receivers returned for 2020 in addition to rookie fifth-round pick Quintez Cephus. The 28-year-old played seven games for the Chargers last year and had a minimal impact. He'll look to find a depth role elsewhere before the season commences.

Davis (hamstring) is signing a one-year contract with the Lions, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Selected by the Giants in the sixth round of the 2015 draft, Davis spent the past four seasons bouncing on and off the Chargers' roster, catching three passes in 26 games. A hamstring injury sent him to IR in late November, and he'll now need to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster in Detroit.

Davis (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
Analysis: Davis was expected to fill the void following Travis Benjamin's (quad) season-ending injury in Week 6, but the fifth-year wide receiver would get just one game as the de facto No. 3 option behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams before suffering a hamstring injury. As a result, Andre Patton slides into the vacated role, although it's hardly a lucrative fantasy position considering the Chargers operate a narrow target tree that largely focuses on Allen, Williams, Hunter Henry, Austin Ekeler and Melvin Gordon.

Davis (hamsting) is questionable for Sunday's game at Denver.
Analysis: Davis wasn't listed on the injury report to begin the week, but he was a limited participant at Friday's practice. The 27-year-old hasn't seen game action since Week 8, and his status for Sunday remains up in the air.
Nov 29, 2019 2:23 PM EST
Davis (hamstring) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.
Analysis: Davis appears to have fully recovered from his hamstring injury during Los Angeles' bye. He stands to reprise his usual role as the team's No. 3 wideout against the Broncos on Sunday.
Nov 27, 2019 8:10 PM EST
Davis (hamstring) won't play in Monday night's game against the Chiefs, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: He came into the game doubtful, so it's no surprise that Davis will miss his third-straight contest with the hamstring issue. Andre Patton was inserted into the lineup for Davis in Week 10, saw four targets in the game, is expected to re-gain his role as the third-string receiver for Monday's contest.
Nov 18, 2019 4:08 PM EST
Davis (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Chiefs.
Analysis: The depth wide receiver has been unable to play for two straight contests, and it seems entirely possible Davis could end up missing a third. Andre Patton, who filled in for Davis in Week 10 and saw four targets, is expected to act as the third-string receiver in the event Davis is ultimately ruled inactive.
Nov 16, 2019 12:31 PM EST
Davis (hamstring) is not participating in Thursday's practice, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Davis has missed Los Angeles' last two contests, and he wasn't able to practice in any capacity last week. The depth wideout will have two more opportunities to practice in some capacity ahead of Monday's contest against the Chiefs.
Nov 14, 2019 11:30 AM EST
Davis (hamstring) caught both of his targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 30-10 throttling of the Dolphins.
Analysis: With both Mike Williams (back) and Travis Benjamin (hip) ruled out Sunday, Davis was forced into a larger role on offense, playing the third-most snaps (27) among Chargers wide receivers. Considering de facto No. 2 Dontrelle Inman also went down with a quad injury during the second half of Sunday's contest, Davis might wind up posting a second consecutive week with at least 20 offensive snaps, but it's hard to project a significant increase in fantasy production considering a difficult Week 5 matchup against the Broncos.
Sep 30, 2019 9:29 AM EST
Davis (hamstring) will play in Sunday's game against the Lions.
Analysis: Davis was dealing with a hamstring injury that forced him to miss the opener, as well has restricting his practice availability to limited throughout the week. Now that he's healthy for game action, he's still considered fourth on the depth chart, and lacks real fantasy upside, considering he hasn't hauled in a catch in the last three seasons.
Sep 15, 2019 8:51 AM EST
Davis (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Lions.
Analysis: Davis missed the season opener, but he was able to work in a limited capacity during practice this week. If he can shake off this injury before Sunday's contest, Davis could have a serviceable role since Mike Williams (knee), who missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, is also questionable. Davis doesn't have a history of fantasy upside with zero receptions over the last three years, but his 6-foot-3, 211-pound frame resembles Williams (6-4, 220) well and could draw targets.
Sep 13, 2019 11:41 AM EST
Davis (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: Davis was held out of the Chargers' season-opening win over the Colts. Dontrelle Inman will serve as the No. 4 receiver for Los Angeles once again if Davis is unable to get healthy in time for Sunday's game in Detroit.
Sep 11, 2019 3:57 PM EST
Davis (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Colts.
Analysis: This news is not surprising considering Davis was listed as doubtful after Friday's practice. Expect Dontrelle Inman to work as the team's No. 4 wideout for this contest.
Sep 8, 2019 11:46 AM EST
Davis (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Colts.
Analysis: Davis is managing a hamstring injury he appears to have suffered in practice this week. The depth wideout is trending towards sitting out Week 1.
Sep 6, 2019 12:49 PM EST
Davis was a non-participant at Thursday's practice with a hamstring injury.
Analysis: Davis was not noted on Wednesday's injury report, indicating that this could be a mid-week injury he is dealing with. That would not be good news for his Week 1 availability, but more will be known about his status as Sunday nears.
Sep 5, 2019 5:23 PM EST
Coach Anthony Lynn mentioned Davis as a possible replacement for Tyrell Williams (Raiders), Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Lynn also mentioned Dylan Cantrell and Travis Benjamin, the latter of whom may ultimately be a cap casualty. Davis has a decent chance to stick on the 53-man roster for another season, but he's a long shot for the No. 3 wideout job after logging 74 snaps on offense and 173 on special teams in 2018. The Chargers would be wise to bring in more competition via the upcoming draft.
Apr 9, 2019 7:55 AM EST
Davis re-signed with the Chargers on Tuesday, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official site reports.
Analysis: Davis played only 74 offensive snaps in 2018 and was targeted once in the passing game, but played a heavy role on special teams. The 27-year-old seems likely to serve in a similar role heading into the 2019 season.
Mar 19, 2019 9:33 PM EST
Davis was not listed among the Chargers roster cuts, thus locking in his spot on the 53-man roster.
Analysis: Davis had made the Chargers roster the previous two seasons so it doesn't come as much of a surprise to see the 26-year-old on the team once again. Davis will act as depth at the wide receiver position, but with a plethora of players above him on the depth chart, he's unlikely to draw much fantasy consideration.
Sep 3, 2018 8:17 AM EST
Davis caught four of his six targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-17 Week 1 preseason loss to the Cardinals.
Analysis: Davis was the star of Saturday's contest, coming down with an acrobatic catch in the third quarter to score the team's first touchdown. It's unlikely the 26-year-old receiver will vault any higher than his fifth place standing on the depth chart, which the team posted on Tuesday, even with a fantastic preseason, but another outing like that could guarantee he'll find his way onto the roster for a third consecutive season.
