2. Corey Davis, WR, NY Jets
Corey Davis was the marquee signing in free agency for the Jets' offense this year and he comes to the team looking to build on his success from 2020.
Having set career highs in receiving yards (984 yards) and touchdowns (five) with the Tennessee Titans last year, as well as ranking as the No. 91 overall player in the NFL’s annual Top-100 list, Davis is expected to be WR1 for the Jets and should be targeted a lot by Wilson during the season.
In fact, during preseason so far, the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft has been targeted on more than 70 percent of pass attempts from Wilson, leaving no doubt that Davis is currently the favored receiver.
Davis’ previous inconsistency with the Titans could be an issue for some fantasy managers, but he is more than capable of hitting big numbers, such as the 182-yard, 24.2 fantasy point game against the Cleveland Browns last year.
With greater involvement expected with the Jets, these types of performances could start to become more regular.
Davis is undoubtedly a good player and while he's never going to be taken early in fantasy this year, the former first-rounder should still be on the board in the mid-rounds (he’s WR20 according to PFF), offer valuable production levels.
With the right matchups, Davis could hit some big numbers during the 2021 season. He is a very decent receiver to have your roster.
