News: 2 days agoDavis played one offensive snap Sunday against the Patriots and did not record any other statistics.
Spin: Though Davis remained active despite the return of J.K. Dobbins, he was not involved in the game plan, as Justice Hill assumed the No. 2 role in the backfield. Davis played 18 snaps Week 2 after seeing six snaps in the opener. With Hill rushing for 60 yards on six carries and Dobbins projecting to see more work moving forward, those who speculated on Davis carving out a role in this offense may want to look elsewhere.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Davis signed with Baltimore after spending 2021 in Atlanta. He entered last season as the Falcons' lead back, but progressively lost his grip on the role and ended up outside the top 30 backs in touches and fantasy points despite appearing in 17 games. Davis is well below average in yards per carry (3.7), yards after contact (1.7) and yards per target (5.0) during his seven-year career and the 29-year-old is best utilized as a depth back in the pros. He may play a lot early on, but will be a long shot for fantasy value barring an injury to JK Dobbins.
