Corey Davis Poised for Target Hog Duties With Delanie Walker Done for Season

Corey Davis is the perfect buy-low candidate with high-upside.

There wasn’t much to be excited about regarding the Titans dud of a season debut against the Dolphins. Corey Davis was certainly a silver lining to the clouds that loomed in Miami all day.  Davis was targeted 13 times against the Dolphins and managed to corral six of them for 62 yards.  Davis appears to be the lead pass-catcher in Matt LeFleur’s potentially explosive offense, especially now that all-pro tight end Delanie Walker is done for the season with a dislocated ankle. 

Davis may have only caught six of his 13 targets, but that’s not entirely on him. Marcus Mariota injured his elbow and sat out most of the second half — not to mention the weather certainly played a factor.  Mariota and Davis had a clear connection early on, as Davis had a quick four receptions. Davis was tackled inside the five and Mariota barely missed him on his other red zone target. His red zone targets should only increase with Mariota’s No. 1 red zone option now done for the season.

Davis is the clear target hog in this offense and provides a real nice floor with an explosive ceiling.  With the bump in red zone targets that Davis is likely to command, he oozes with upside. With the combination of poor weather and long delays, the Titans’ offense struggled to gather a rhythm throughout the afternoon — making Davis a perfect buy-low candidate.
