2018 Fantasy Outlook
Cut loose by the 49ers last preseason, Davis wound up on the Seahawks' practice squad and eventually their game-day roster. He played six games without doing anything too noteworthy, as his mediocre mark of 3.5 YPC was still a career high. The 2015 fourth-round pick has the frame Seattle looks for in a running back at 5-9, 217, and he showed some three-down upside in college at South Carolina, but those skills have been in little evidence since turning pro. The team made a big commitment to Rashaad Penny in the draft and brings back last year's Week 1 starter in Chris Carson, so Davis seems pegged purely for a depth role if he retains a spot. He caught a career-high 15 passes last season, and he could carve out an occasional third-down role if he proves to be the back most capable of protecting Russell Wilson from blitzes.

Produces dud in blowout win

December 2, 2018
Davis rushed four times for 10 yards in Sunday's win over the 49ers.
ANALYSIS
Davis logged four carries for the third straight week, but his 2.5 yards per rush was his worst mark since Week 2 when he gained three yards on three attempts. Rookie Rashaad Penny bolstered his hold on the backfield's No. 2 position by generating 65 yards and a score on seven carries. Coach Pete Carroll rolls with the hot hand, but Penny has been getting the first shot lately and making the most of it, and even if Seattle holds Chris Carson (finger) back for any reason in Week 14, Davis probably won't see much of an uptick in work.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
Davis, a former fourth-round selection, joined the Seahawks in the offseason after spending last season with division-rival San Francisco. Over the past two seasons with the 49ers, Davis recorded 108 yards and one touchdown on 54 attempts to go along with 10 receptions for 53 yards in 14 games. He'll now battle with a collection of young talent to secure a reserve spot on in Seattle's backfield. Davis lacks experience which could hurt his chances, but his pass-catching ability out of the backfield could help him secure a bottom of the depth chart role in 2017.
A depth back in his rookie campaign, Davis turned in disappointing results with a 1.7 YPC on 35 rushing attempts. To add insult to injury, he suffered a hand injury and missed a good portion of the season. He entered training camp looking quicker and the results showed in his first two preseason games where gained 98 yards on just 10 carries. The strong start has made Davis a likely candidate to make the team as a third or fourth running back.
The 49ers selected Davis out of South Carolina in the fourth round this offseason. At 5-foot-9, Davis may not seem like a north-south runner, but his 220-pound frame and low center of gravity give him the ability to power his way between the tackles. He is currently behind Carlos Hyde, Reggie Bush, and Kendall Hunter on the depth chart, but a strong training camp and preseason could have him jump either Bush or Hunter. Davis is also best suited to be the every-down back should Hyde go down with an injury this season.
