|Corey Davis entered the NFL as the 5th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, and many in the fantasy community had high hopes for him. He has the prototypical build for a No.1 NFL wide receiver, and is very athletic. But so far, he has not been able to establish himself as a dominant player at this level.
Granted, he did play with Marcus Mariota during his first two seasons. During his second season (2018) he produced 65 receptions for 891 yards and 4 touchdowns as the clear leader in the wide receiver room. Many expected a big step in 2019, particularly since A.J. Brown would keep defenses honest on the other side of the field. But the narrative didn't pan out, as Brown came in and simply outplayed Davis.
Despite the poor play of Mariota early in 2019 and then playing second fiddle to Brown the second half of the season, Davis did finish with 43 receptions for 601 yards and 2 touchdowns. But it was a big step back from 2018, and seemed to indicate that he's more of a secondary option at the NFL level. He is not being drafted until very late in fantasy leagues, or is going undrafted. In a low-volume passing offense and behind Brown, it seems like the market is correct in this assessment.

Knee injury for Brown

FFToday's Take: Brown has a bone bruise on his knee that Adam Schefter speculated could keep him out beyond Week 2. Brown missed practice Thursday and Friday and will leave a void in the Titans passing game. Corey Davis (hamstring) becomes an intriguing fantasy asset against the Jags along with TE Jonnu Smith.

Bone bruise on his knee

|Titans' WR A.J. Brown missed practice (Thursday) with a bone bruise in his knee that is jeopardizing his availability for Sunday's game against the Jaguars and possibly beyond, per source. Brown is likely to be week to week with his knee injury. (ESPN - Adam Schefter)|
FFToday's Take: It's unclear when the injury happened, but things are trending in the wrong direction quickly for him. He was a limited participant in practice Wednesday but did not try to go on Thursday. Brown's absence opens the door for Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith to take on more targets - enough to make both low-end weekly starters in most leagues.
