Name: Corey Davis

Age: 23 years old

Team: Tennessee Titans

2015 Stats: N/A

2016 Stats: N/A

2017 Stats: 11 games, 34 receptions for 375 yards, 0 TD

2018 Projections: 64 receptions, 759 yards, 4.5 TD

Projected 2019 Fantasy Value: WR28

Injury: Davis injured his hamstring (unclear which side), in August during the preseason. He played weeks 1 and 2, then re-injured the same side week 2. This caused him to miss the next 5 games (plus a bye week), and he returned week 9. Depending on severity, hamstring strains can take 2-10 weeks for return to play, so he fell right in the middle of that. He was pretty unproductive during the rest of the season, but was able to finish without injury. He posted his best game of the season in the playoffs, and appeared fully healthy.

Davis has a history of hamstring strains during college (again, unclear which side).

 

2018 Health Outlook: Hamstring strains are very common in sports, and tend to recur. If they become chronic, they can greatly diminish performance. It doesn’t seem like Davis is at that point, as he improved over the season, but it’s something to watch out for. Assuming he’s taken his training seriously during the offseason and strengthened the hamstring, he should come into 2018 healthy and successful. Remember, OBJ missed the first 4 games of his career with a hamstring injury and hasn’t had problems since.

 

Risk of Re-Injury: Moderate

 

Recommendations: Don’t worry about the injury when deciding to draft him. I’d be more concerned about the Titans offensive struggles than his injury history. Pay attention to how the team is running during training camp and preseason. The hiring of Matt LaFleur as the new OC should help the team improve over their dreadful 2017 showing, but there’s still a lot of concerns surrounding them.
