Week 8: Davis vs. Chiefs
Austin Davis completed 17-of-20 passes for 155 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Rams’ Week 7 win over the Seahawks. After taking too many unnecessary deep shots into double coverage versus the 49ers on Monday night last week, Davis was more conservative against Seattle on Sunday, settling for a lot of passes underneath. He did hit Chris Givens for a 30-yard pass play on a crucial third down in the fourth quarter but otherwise played things safe. While he continues to exceed expectations in St. Louis, Davis is limited to being a QB2 in fantasy leagues. He has a tough matchup on Sunday versus Kansas City and should be avoided in all formats.
