Former Titans’ WR Corey Davis reached agreement on a three-year, $37.5 million deal that includes $27 million guaranteed with the New York Jets, per sources.
Davis had a career year in his fourth season with the Titans, racking up 65 catches for 984 yards and five touchdowns on 92 targets, perhaps benefiting from the defensive attention being paid to A.J. Brown. Breshad Perriman is likely to move on, so Davis will join the steady Jamison Crowder and the up-and-coming Denzel Mims in an improving Jets receiving corps. Fantasy-wise this is a downgrade for Davis, who is going fom Tennessee's low-volume, exceptionally-efficient passing attack (with Ryan Tannehill at the helm) to an unknown quarterback situation playing for an unproven offensive coordinator (Mike LaFleur, brother of Matt LaFleur). LaFleur did spend three seasons as the passing game coordinator for the highly-efficient 49ers, so there is hope for this offense. My big takeaway from this signing is not really about Davis; whoever is quarterbacking the Jets will have some weapons to work with.
TEN WR Corey Davis - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Houston Texans
In the loss to the Packers last Sunday, Corey Davis was held without a catch only two targets from Ryan Tannehill. Between facing a solid secondary and the snowy weather, consider the outing an anomaly. Davis missed the first meeting versus the Texans in October, but Tannehill threw for over 350 yards that day, so consider him a WR2 in the regular-season finale.
