2020 Fantasy Outlook
After seeing plenty of action as a rookie in 2018, Davis held down a starting cornerback role throughout the 2019 campaign. By all accounts, he made significant strides. Transitioning to a press-coverage philosophy under new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles - an approach he thrived in during his college days at Auburn - Davis recorded 19 defensed passes and his first career interception last season. The soon-to-be third-year cornerback also yielded a stingy 43.6 percent completion rate on throws in which he was the primary defender, lending credence to the notion he could be primed for a breakout IDP campaign. Not only will the year of experience in Bowles' system allow him to react a lot more than think once the ball is snapped, but Davis could also play even more aggressively if the team's safety situation sees an upgrade with rookie second-round pick Antoine Winfield and the returning Justin Evans (Achilles).

Receives high praise from coach
CBTampa Bay Buccaneers
July 29, 2020
Coach Bruce Arians labeled Davis as an elite cornerback in Tuesday's camp-opening Zoom call with reporters, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. "I think Carlton made that move last November," he said. "What he did to DeAndre Hopkins (23 yards on five catches from nine targets) was outstanding. He basically shut him out of the game, and that's not an easy job. He did a really good job on Julio (Jones). The penalties have gone. He's one of the top 10 guys in my opinion right now."
ANALYSIS
The impressive manner in which Davis wrapped up his second season clearly made an impression on Arians, and while the Buccaneers head man may also be trying to boost his young cornerback's confidence, the remarks may prove prescient once the season begins. Davis finished 2019 with 19 pass breakups and allowed a 43.6 percent completion rate on pass plays when he was in primary coverage. The Auburn product also proved to be sure tackler while compiling 60 stops, and he helped limit Jones to a solid-but-not-spectacular 12-146-0 line across two games. The press coverage defensive coordinator Todd Bowles asked his defensive backs to play was a good fit for Davis' skills since he'd thrived with it during his college days, and with a year of experience in the scheme now under his belt, there's certainly a chance he begins to convert more of the passes he gets his hands on into interceptions.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Davis has been standing out since getting on the field in rookie minicamp, and he's continued making an impact in training camp and the first preseason game. The former Auburn Tiger has proven adept at both the press coverage he played in college and more of an off-technique that the Buccaneers sometimes deploy, with his impressive play making a strong case for a robust role as a depth corner in the coming campaign.
