Skins TE Fred Davis will be suspended

Washington Post - [Full Article]

The NFL is expected to notify Redskins left tackle Trent Williams and tight end Fred Davis that each will miss the remainder of the season after they failed multiple drug tests, under a settlement reached between the league and the NFL Players Association Saturday.

The players will be formally notified of their four-game suspensions in the next couple of days, according to two people familiar with the situation.

Because the season-ending suspensions are part of a deal, neither player would be able to appeal and neither is expected to see any more action this season.

Each player has failed at least three drug tests since entering the league, according to a league source, including two since the lockout ended in July. Davis and Williams tested positive for recreational drugs, believed to be marijuana, according to a league source familiar with the case.

Fantasy Impact: 

Logan Paulsen seems next in line to get receptions. He has just seven for 95 yards this season. The loss of Davis will be huge for fantasy owners who already saw him get 793 receiving yards with three TDs and 59 catches. According to the story, he won't be able to appeal and should be dropped on your team.
