23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Buffalo Bills
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Davis spent the bulk of his first two seasons working as one of the league's better No. 4 receivers. Then, he got a chance for more over the final four weeks of the 2021 season, catching 16 of 32 targets for 207 yards and three TDs while Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley dealt with injuries. Promising, but nothing compared to what happened next... Davis caught eight passes for 201 yards and four TDs in the playoff loss to Kansas City. And so, debates began, with pessimists noting that Davis has usually been targeted on a low percentage of his routes, hinting he's not the best at getting open. Optimists, on the other hand, will note that his lack of volume has been dictated by circumstances, with the Bills deploying a crew of veteran wideouts led by target-hog Stefon Diggs. Draft capital might be another knock, though Davis arguably never should've lasted until Round 4 in the first place, having entered the draft as a 20-year-old after tallying 2,056 yards and 19 TDs his final two seasons at UCF. He backed that production with a decent 40 time (4.54) for a big wideout (216), and quickly became a red-zone threat as Buffalo's No. 4 WR. The team now appears ready to put more on Davis' plate, having moved on from Beasley and Sanders with only injury-prone slot man Jamison Crowder signed as a veteran replacement. Read Past Outlooks

Career game in playoff loss
WRBuffalo Bills
January 23, 2022
Davis caught eight of 10 targets for 201 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's 42-36 overtime loss to the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
Davis caught all four of Josh Allen's passing touchdowns, scoring from 18, 75, 27 and 19 yards out. The final two touchdowns each gave the Bills the lead within the final two minutes of regulation, only for the Chiefs to answer both times. Buffalo never got a chance to respond in overtime, as Kansas City won the coin toss and drove down the field for a game-winning touchdown. Davis emerged as a consistent contributor in Buffalo's offense down the stretch and took his game to another level in this one, leaving a strong final impression to close out his sophomore season. With the big-armed Allen slinging it his way, Davis' fantasy arrow is pointing up.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
A 2020 fourth-round pick, Davis had a strong rookie year with 17.1 YPC (4th among 60-target WR) and 9.7 YPT (10th). He also scored seven touchdowns on only 62 targets and had three catches of 40-plus yards. At 6-2, 210, Davis has good size, but below average speed (4.54 40), and his other athletic metrics were similarly average. But college and pro production trump the “underwear olympics,” and Davis has earned the trust of rising star quarterback Josh Allen. Keep in mind Buffalo will again have a crowded receiving corps — target magnet Stefon Diggs is the clear No. 1, Cole Beasley is still around for slot work and the team signed Emmanuel Sanders to replace the departed John Brown. Davis has upside if someone were to get hurt, but otherwise his target ceiling is limited.
The Bills have big plans for Davis, though 2020 should prove to be a year of transition and learning the ropes in the NFL. Nevertheless, the fourth-round pick out of UCF was mega productive for the Knights in 2019, with 72 catches for 1,241 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games. The production was worthy of All-AAC honors and put him on the NFL's radar screen. Can he break through and challenge Cole Beasley and John Brown for targets? Time will tell.
