Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis was held in check in a Week 9 win over the Saints. Davis had no room to run against a tough Saints' front, as he totaled just 13 rushing yards on nine attempts while hauling in one pass for five receiving yards. The 28-year-old halfback has been held to 20 rushing yards or fewer in three contests and can't be trusted by managers for fantasy purposes right now. Even a Week 10 matchup against a Cowboys defense that just allowed 190 rushing yards to Denver isn't enough to consider Davis in lineups.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis could struggle in Week 9 against a tough Saints run defense. Davis saw a season-low four touches two weeks ago but rebounded with a 14-touch effort last week, so the volume bounced back to near his season average even if the results remained disappointing. The veteran runner may need to score a touchdown to be fantasy-relevant this week- as the Saints defense has allowed the second-fewest rushing yards per game this year. Davis should be left on benches this week.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis recorded nine carries for 44 yards and caught five passes for 22 yards on six targets in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. Davis has been overshadowed by the emergence of Cordarrelle Patterson and hasn't been that productive this season. Davis hasn't posted more than 53 rushing yards or 25 receiving yards in any game this season. Given the fact that he's competing with Patterson for touches and seems to be on the losing end of that deal, the 28-year-old should be considered nothing more than a low-upside RB3/flex, at best, in deeper leagues.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis had a disappointing day in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. Davis saw season-lows in both rushing attempts, four, and yards, 10- while taking a complete backseat to fellow runner Cordarrelle Patterson, who handled 16 touches. The 28-year-old at least had steady volume to fall back on in the past several weeks, though he seems to be trending towards touchdown-or-bust territory. Davis will be on shaky fantasy ground for a Week 8 divisional matchup with Carolina.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis has seen his workload even out with fellow halfback Cordarrelle Patterson over the last few weeks. Davis is still one of 10 active backs playing at least 65 percent of the snaps while averaging no less than 16 touches per contest heading into a matchup against a Dolphins team that has struggled to contain the running game. Atlanta still seems to view Davis as their lead back in terms of how much playing time they give him- and the matchup against Miami might be his best of the year so far. Look for Davis to finish among the top-24 running backs in fantasy this week.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis tallied 15 touches for 61 scrimmage yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Jets. Davis struggled to find running room for much of the contest- and lost a fumble, though he salvaged a rough day with a three-yard rushing score in the fourth quarter. The veteran runner watched as Cordarrelle Patterson led the backfield with a whopping 21 touches, a trend that doesn't appear likely to change. Still, Davis is averaging 16 touches per game, volume that should lead to low-end RB2 production in the future. He'll get a bye to rest up before drawing a favorable matchup against a struggling Dolphins run defense in Week 7.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis could be poised for a bounce-back performance in a Week 5 tilt against the Jets in London. Davis is coming off of his worst game of the season, a 13-carry, 14-yard game against Washington, a poor performance that was salvaged only by his receiving touchdown. While he hasn't performed as well as his backfield mate Cordarrelle Patterson, Davis still holds the edge in playing time. Only nine running backs have averaged a higher snap count percentage than Davis through four weeks, suggesting that the team still views him as their lead back. He'll look to get back on track against a Jets defense that has allowed the most fantasy points per game to running backs and the sixth-most rushing yards. Fire him up as a low-end RB2 in Week 5.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis finished with 13 carries for 14 yards and two receptions for 12 yards and a score on two targets in Sunday's loss to Washington. While the receiving touchdown was great, Davis has generally not been effective as the RB1 for Atlanta. The back hasn't rushed for more than 50 yards in any of the four contests despite getting double-digit carries in three of four games. Cordarrelle Patterson has been more effective in the rushing and passing game and is emerging as the better option. Davis shouldn't be in starting lineups going forward.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis is an RB3 option in Week 4 against Washington. The back hasn't been as impressive this season as the RB1, posting no more than 50 rushing yards or 25 receiving yards in any contest. However, he has seen at least 12 carries in two of three games which indicates the weekly volume will be there. As a result, Davis is worth a look in deeper leagues as an RB option as his volume gives him a chance to produce.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis carried the ball 12 times for 50 rushing yards and caught all four targets for 20 receiving yards in Sunday's win over the Giants. Davis ended up playing about 60 percent of the snaps compared to Cordarrelle Patterson's 40 percent, with Davis totaling 16 touches to Patterson's 13. Davis has now averaged 4.2 yards per carry in back-to-back weeks, though his inability to find the end zone through three weeks is disappointing for fantasy managers. The veteran runner is seeing enough volume to be successful but will need to score more touchdowns- something that could be difficult in a subpar Falcons offense. A tough Week 4 test against the Washington Football Team defense awaits in Week 4.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis was expected to see the lion's share of the carries in his first year with the team, but Cordarrelle Patterson has made a bigger impact through the first two weeks and deserves steady touches. AtlantaFalcons.com's Scott Bair thinks that Davis' workload will likely be higher than Patterson's over the course of the year, but it might be closer to a 60-40 split. Davis is averaging 3.6 yards per carry, while Patterson is at 4.6, but the running game in general must be more efficient. Atlanta's running game should be more productive in Week 3 against the New York Giants, but Davis' production so far should make him a fairly unattractive RB3/flex option with Patterson breathing down his neck.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis saw a decrease in touches last week, giving fantasy managers some pause heading into a Week 3 matchup against the Giants. While Davis ceded more touches to backup Cordarrelle Patterson, the former looked more impressive on the ground, averaging 4.2 yards per carry. While Davis' snap count percentage dropped from 75 percent to 64, he was still the clear lead back, which should give him at least flex consideration. The Giants defense has surrendered the fifth-most rushing yards through two weeks- and Atlanta will want to get the run game going early to fire up head coach Arthur Smith's play-action passes. Davis is in line for a bounce-back against New York as a fringe RB2/3 in Week 3.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis finished with nine carries for 38 yards and seven receptions for 25 yards on seven targets in Sunday's loss to the Bucs. Despite being the RB1 on Atlanta, Davis has put up less than impressive numbers in two games. He finished with 49 and 38 rushing yards and 23 and 25 receiving yards. The back's volume isn't the worst but it's his production that's not all that great. As a result, Davis should only be occupying fantasy team benches going forward until he puts up bigger numbers.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis is not a strong starting option in Week 2 against Tampa. The new RB1 of the Falcons posted 15 carries for 49 yards in the season opener against Philly last week. While Davis should get the majority of touches each week, that's not saying much considering the Falcons' only other RB options are unproven. Last week, the Buccaneers held the Cowboys' rushing attack to an overall 60 yards on the night. As a result, Davis will face a tough matchup and should remain on benches this week.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis carried the ball 15 times for 49 rushing yards and caught three passes for 26 receiving yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. Davis saw the workload of a true lead back, as he handled 15 carries and was targeted six times in the passing game, though the results were less than stellar, as he averaged just 3.3 yards per tote. Still, that's the kind of workload that will make Davis a trustworthy RB2 this year in fantasy, so long as he can compile better production through both the ground and the air. Davis will get a tough matchup next week against the Buccaneers, who held him under 50 scrimmage yards last season.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis will take on the Eagles in his first start with his new club in Week 1. Davis made a name for himself in fantasy circles last season for the Panthers, totaling 1,015 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns on 224 touches as the starter sans Christian McCaffrey, good for an RB12 finish. The South Carolina product will be competing for touches with recent addition Wayne Gallman, though the former projects to lead the backfield against an Eagles defense that ranked 23rd in rushing yards allowed per game last season. Philadelphia's defensive line possesses some able run-stoppers, but Davis should see enough volume to post low-end RB2 numbers. He could see an added boost in PPR formats for his pass-catching work, particularly if the Falcons are forced to play from behind.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis will be a part of a rotation at the position, though NFL.com's Scott Bair believes the veteran will end up as the team's workhorse. Davis was thrust into a starting role last season for the Panthers and excelled, totaling 903 scrimmage yards and eight touchdowns on 17.4 touches per game in 12 starts in 2020. While Davis isn't exactly the most proven option, the Falcons have several question marks on the depth chart behind the 29-year-old, meaning the path to a workhorse-type role is there for him. Davis might not have the ceiling of other running backs in his ADP range, but he should have a solid weekly floor thanks to his pass-catching ability, making him a good investment at his low-end RB2 price tag.
Atlanta Falcons running back Mike Davis is set for a feature-back role in 2021 after signing a two-year, $5.5 million deal with the club this offseason. Davis entered the 2020 campaign as a backup for the Carolina Panthers, but he ended up compiling a career-high 224 touches due to injuries to Christian McCaffrey. The 28-year-old was one of nine running backs to rack up at least 600 rushing yards and 300 receiving yards in 2020, and all nine finished as RB2s or better, with Davis netting an RB18 finish. While new head coach Arthur Smith could opt for a committee approach to the backfield, Davis should still be expected to see the majority of touches given the limited options behind him, meaning fantasy managers should look at him as an RB2 heading into the 2021 campaign, particularly in PPR formats.
Former Carolina Panthers running back Mike Davis signed a two-year deal worth $5.5 million on Tuesday with the Atlanta Falcons, according to a source. The deal includes $3 million fully guaranteed in Year 1 of the contract. Davis managed to set career-highs in carries (165), catches (59), scrimmage yards (1,015) and touchdowns (eight) in 15 games last season because All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey was injured for most of the year. With both Todd Gurley and Brian Hill being free agents, Davis has the chance to lead Atlanta's backfield in 2021. The 28-year-old could wind up being a high-upside RB2 if he winds up being the Falcons primary ball-carrier next season. There's still a good chance that the Falcons will add to the position in free agency or the upcoming draft, but Davis proved last season that he can help fantasy managers out in a big way with his work last season.
The Carolina Panthers will not have running backs Christian McCaffrey (quadriceps, shoulder) or Mike Davis for the Week 17 regular season finale against the Saints. With nothing left to play for in 2020, the Panthers are taking the smart approach and resting their All-Pro running back in McCaffrey, who has played in just three games this year due to injuries. Carolina will be down to their fifth left tackle and third-string running back in Trenton Cannon. Rookies Myles Hartsfield and Rodney Smith are also likely to be mixed in. Needless to say, the Saints Defense will be a popular play streaming unit in fantasy leagues in Week 17. Cannon, 26, has just 10 carries on the season for 33 yards in 13 games for the Panthers. He'll be a hard-to-trust RB3/flex on Sunday against a stiff New Orleans defense.
Carolina Panthers running back Mike Davis carried the ball 14 times for 28 rushing yards and a touchdown in a win over the Washington Football team. Davis was overshadowed by teammate Curtis Samuel on the ground, as the wideout paced the team in rushing yards. The veteran back punched in a score from the 1-yard line, but other than that, he disappointed his fantasy managers. If Davis is again the lead back in Week 17, he'll take on a Saints Defense that held him to 1.7 yards per carry in their first meeting.
Carolina Panthers running back Mike Davis faces a tough test in Week 16 against the Washington Football Team. Davis has handled 17.8 touches per game in his second stint as the starter- and with Christian McCaffrey (thigh) expected to sit again, the veteran back will be in the lead role once again. Washington has been stingy against the position, as they've allowed the third-fewest fantasy points per game to halfbacks this season. Davis' workload warrants a start as an RB2, though he's a low-end starting option in Week 16.
Carolina Panthers running back Mike Davis had 14 carries for 59 yards and two receptions for two yards on two targets in the Week 15 loss to Green Bay. Davis has at least 50 rushing yards in the past four games and has been serviceable in place of Christian McCaffrey. The RB would be in the starting conversation next week if McCaffrey cannot play (thigh), but should be benched if the elite RB returns.
Carolina Panthers running back Mike Davis fills in as a high-end RB2 this week against the Packers with Christian McCaffrey's (quadriceps, shoulder) status in doubt. In the last three games he has played, Davis has seen double-digit carries and at least 50 rushing yards, including two rushing touchdowns against the Broncos last week. He has also seen six targets in the passing game the past couple of weeks. The Packers have a notoriously weak run defense and allow the fourth-most fantasy points to RBs. As a result, Davis is a solid starting option if McCaffrey misses yet another game, which is expected.
Carolina Panthers running back Mike Davis carried the ball 11 times for 5 rushing yards with two scores and caught five passes for 42 receiving yards in a loss to Denver. Davis had his best game as the lead back since Week 5, as he took advantage of a Broncos Defense that has struggled against backs lately. It's Davis' first multi-score game of the season and his fourth with at least 90 scrimmage yards. While he'll likely cede lead-back duties to Christian McCaffrey (shoulder, quad) next week, he's still worth rostering just in case.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?
Yes! As you can see from this Julio Jones write up from his player page, we updated his news section as soon as the news broke.
“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
