Corey Davis Dragged Down by Marcus Mariota and the Pathetic Titans Offense

Make no mistake about it… Corey Davis is talented. But, it’s tough to make plays when his quarterback can’t even get a pass off or be accurate with his throws. We were pretty high on Mike Vrabel’s offensive coordinator hire of Matt LaFleur, who was the first true branch of Sean McVay’s coaching tree. However, the offense has been an unmitigated disaster. Although Marcus Mariota might still be dealing with an elbow injury, he’s just not very good right now. Sure, one could point to him getting sacked 11 times in Week 7, but if you look at his passing chart, he’s basically cut the field in half — which is making his No. 1 wide receiver borderline useless. Outside of his 9-161-1 game in Week 4, Davis’ results come directly from his inept surrounding talent.

Even though the Titans have had one of the worst offenses in the league. Davis could be the definition of a buy-low candidate. He’s been targeted an impressive 49 times and has garnered a lofty 41.33 percent of his team’s air yards. The offensive line isn’t nearly as bad as it looked against Baltimore, and although Mariota has yet to live up to his high expectations, he shouldn’t be as bad as he’s performed. If you have faith in Mariota improving under LaFleur, the targets will continue to come his way. If you need a very cheap receiver with high-upside, throw out a bench player offer to a disgruntled Davis owner.
