2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Saints' first-round pick last April, Davenport began his career in a rotational role along the defensive line. Though he only averaged 32 snaps in his 13 games, Davenport didn't need to play on a full-time basis for his pass-rushing skills to be evident. Per Pro Football Focus, Davenport was credited with 30 quarterback pressures on just 296 pass-rush attempts (10.1 percent). That sort of success rate bodes well for Davenport's chances of surpassing the 4.5 sacks he notched in 2018, especially with a major surge in playing time likely on the horizon. The Saints let veteran Alex Okafor walk in free agency this offseason, paving the way for Davenport to step into a starting role at defensive end opposite four-time Pro Bowler Cameron Jordan.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
In the most stunning move of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Saints traded away a king's ransom to move up from pick No. 27 to No. 14 in order to draft Davenport out of tiny University of Texas-San Antonio. The 6-6, 265-pound defensive end has freakish speed for his size - he ran a blazing 4.58-second 40-yard dash at the scouting combine - but even according to coach Sean Payton, Davenport may be a raw developmental project given the low level of his Conference USA competition. Moreover, the Saints re-signed Alex Okafor this offseason to complement All-Pro Cameron Jordan. Prior to tearing his Achilles last November, Okafor had been very good in his first season in New Orleans. Davenport has the prototypical size and athleticism to eventually be a major contributor, but given his lack of high-level experience and possible backup role, it's fair to wonder whether Davenport will be able to make an immediate impact as a rookie.
