RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
In his third season last year, Davis finished with a career-high 116 tackles and 3.5 sacks, while he also recovered two fumbles. Those totals followed figures of 107 tackles and one sack in 2013, highlighting Davisí steady development into a high-quality linebacker. Heading into the upcoming campaign, Davis should continue to benefit from playing behind the Jetsí disruptive defensive line, and the presence of new defensive-minded coach Todd Bowles is another reason to consider Davisí upside in fantasy leagues.
Considering the Jets allowed just 3.4 yards per carry last year, Davis' first year as a starter appears to have been quite a success. He finished with 106 tackles, one sack and one interception, and there's reason to believe he'll be even better in 2014. With a full year of experience on his side, Davis should be more able to capitalize on his rare athleticism. With 4.5 speed and excellent lower-body explosiveness, Davis has clear upside as a potential sack source on the inside of Rex Ryan's defense, especially with the best three-man defensive line in football occupying blockers.
Davis is expected to start at inside linebacker for the Jets in 2013.
