Why Corey Davis is the Most Overrated Fantasy Football Player in 2019

Corey Davis is the most overrated fantasy football player in 2019, and it’s not real close. Ranked 62 overall by the “experts,” Davis is a whopping 27 spots lower on my Big Board, especially after the 2019 NFL Draft. Even without any real competition for targets, Davis still struggled to find any consistency. He topped 10 Half-PPR FPs only four times, as compared to five week-ruiners under 5 FPs. Now, Davis will contend for looks with early second-round pick AJ Brown, along with newly-signed Adam Humphries and a returning Delanie Walker. Puke.

For inexplicable reasons, fantasy “experts” remain enamored with Davis’ “potential.” Sure, he’s flashed Alpha WR1 traits, but Davis has been far quicker to disappear than to dominate.

Still, analysts love finding excuses for the former fifth overall pick, blaming QB injury or poor scheme fits. Yet, when have Davis or Marcus Mariota consistently proven they can stay healthy or maintain high-levels of play? And why would former TE-coach Arthur Smith, who’s already promised an “ugly,” run-heavy attack, suddenly spark a passing masterpiece?

In four years with Mariota, the Titans have ranked 21st, 28th, 28th, and 31st in pass-attempts. Mariota’s only topped 20 TDs once, has topped 300+ yards in just 7 contests, and has never hit even 3500 passing yards in a season. This “Aerial Pie” has been consistently unsatisfying, and now will be distributed to even more mouths. Why Davis is considered even a Top-30 WR, above guys like Tyler Boyd, Robby Anderson, and Mike Williams, is mind-boggling. Rookie WRs N’Keal Harry and DK Metcalf come with far great ceilings 2-3 rounds later, and I’d prefer even Dede Westbrook and Donte Moncrief, who can be had 50+ picks later.

Get off the Davis train ahead of the “experts.” You’ll thank us when he’s an afterthought this time next year.
