Corey Davis has seen his yearly totals go up from 2017 to 2018, but we have still yet to see him fully embrace a No. 1 receiver role in the Titan offense.
I do see light at the end of the tunnel in this case. The Titan offense wasn’t very good last season and towards the end of the season, the team leaned on Derrick Henry to help move the ball and be the focal point of the offense, which led to a less productive end to last season.
Davis was in no means consistent throughout the season as he put up multiple single-digit scoring outings. But when Tennessee wanted to get him the ball, for the most part, he delivered. Davis ended the season with a 65/891/4 stat line on 112 targets, which isn’t a very good catch percentage. I’d hope to see that number increase this season if the team helps solidify the offensive line. They finished 29th in the league in Football Outsiders’ Adjusted Sack Rate last season. If Mariota can stay healthy and the offense can be a little more gelled, Davis could be in for a decent year.
Davis currently has an ADP of 7.05, or the fifth pick in the seventh round. I don’t mind that spot but be weary of offseason moves made by the Titans regarding the O-line. I would draft Davis ahead of Sammy Watkins, Tyler Lockett, and LeSean McCoy. If he can have a consistent offense around him, and the team can get him the ball, I see him as a solid WR2 this season.
2019 Stat Projection: 78/1,025/7
