Draft note
by John Paulsen
The Falcons led the league in vacated touches per game (21.6) and all they did to address the running back position is sign Davis and a 183-pound undrafted free agent, Javian Hawkins. Davis’s career YPC (3.7) is pretty ugly, but digging deeper into his 2020 season, there are reasons to like his upside. He was tied for 12th in yards after contact per attempt and led the league in broken tackles per rush attempt. He was also fourth among running backs in catches (59) and was fifth among backs in broken tackles per reception. Advanced stats courtesy of Pro Football Reference.

Scouting report

ATL RB Mike Davis - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Mike Davis filled in as best he could for an injured Christian McCaffrey in 2020. He signed with the Falcons as a free agent in 2021 and has almost no competition for touches in Atlanta's backfield. Todd Gurley and Brian Hill are gone and the Falcons didn't even address the position in the draft. Qadree Ollison and Javian Hawkins will be worked in as well, but this backfield belongs to Davis.

Fantasy Downside

Davis doesn't have the explosiveness of other running backs and does have just a 3.7 career YPC heading into his age-28 season. Part of that is it took him some time to really get going, as last season was the best of his career and he has just two seasons with more than 300 rushing yards and 200 receiving yards. But he has a chance to blow those numbers out of the water in 2021.

2021 Bottom Line

Davis could end up being one of the better bargains in 2021, with a fifth-round ADP and RB1 upside. Even at age 28, he has little mileage on his legs, with just 412 career carries. Davis could quietly be one of the better backs in 2021.
