WR Corey Davis - Tennessee Titans
|6-3, 209||Born: 1-11-1995||College: Western Michigan||Drafted: Round 1, pick 2017|
2019 Week 1 vs CLE (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was invisible on the stat sheet as he finished with no receptions from three targets. He struggled to get open throughout the game, and even when he was open, Mariota was not accurate enough to get him the ball.
2019 Week 2 vs IND (5 / 3 / 38 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis had another underwhelming performance as he saw just five targets--one fewer than Delanie Walker and the same amount as rookie A.J. Brown. After coming up short with no receptions in Week 1, Davis had his first reception of the season come on the third drive of this game as he grabbed a simple short pass for six yards. He would haul in another short pass for seven yards to finish a very quiet first half. His highlight of the game came to start the second half as Davis found separation to get open for a 25-yard reception. The cornerback in coverage came up injured on that play, which helped Davis to be left wide open downfield. This would be his final reception of the game.
2019 Week 3 vs JAX (4 / 3 / 44 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis had another disappointing outing as he finished with just three receptions for a season-high 44 yards while contending with shadow coverage from Jalen Ramsey. His first target wasn't until the drive before halftime as Davis negated his own catch by lining up incorrectly to draw an illegal formation penalty. He would finish the first half with just one target but no catches. Davis would haul in all three targets that went his way in the fourth quarter, including an impressive one-handed grab on the left sideline. He fumbled right after the catch, but it was recovered by the Titans. Davis closed out the game with a 19-yard reception on the final drive as he took advantage of soft coverage from the Jaguars defense.
2019 Week 4 vs ATL (6 / 5 / 91 / 1 rec)
Davis hauled in the first catch of the game on a simple five-yard out route where he stiff-armed a defender to create a gain of 14 yards. His second catch came wide open underneath zone coverage. His third catch was a nice come-backer where Davis hauled it in despite tight coverage from Desmond Trufant. He then broke away from Trufant's tackle attempt to pick up another five yards after the catch. Davis found the end zone on his next reception a few plays later on that drive as he made a nice cut after the catch on an out route, speeding around the Falcons defender before sprinting up the sideline for a 23-yard touchdown. His last reception came in the third quarter as Davis again found space in zone coverage to haul in a 16-yard gain over the middle.
2019 Week 5 vs BUF (4 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
The top play of the game for Davis came just before halftime as he ran a great comeback route to make the catch about 11-yards downfield before shedding an arm-tackle and turning it upfield to gain another 12 yards on his way to the 23-yard reception. Davis was targeted just three more times and managed to haul in just one short pass as he finished with a disappointing 28 total yards.
2019 Week 6 vs DEN (5 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)
Davis was targeted five times and hauled in just three receptions for 36 yards with all three coming from Ryan Tannehill in the second half. Davis was the target of Tannehill's first pass under center, resulting in a short 5-yard gain. On the following drive, Davis ran a good out route 13-yards downfield as Davis found him on the sideline. Davis would see a deep target later in that drive as well and made a spectacular sideline catch, but just barely missed getting two feet in as it was called incomplete. His last reception came on another well-ran out route on the right side of the field as Davis snagged the ball and spun for a few extra yards to complete his longest gain of the day--18 yards.
2019 Week 7 vs LAC (7 / 6 / 80 / 1 rec)
Corey Davis led the team in receiving and tied for the lead in receptions as he had a solid day on Sunday. Davis made a spectacular contested catch on the second drive of the game as he was under tight coverage but plucked the ball away from the defender for an 11-yard gain. Two plays later, Davis hauled in another well-thrown ball that hit him in stride just in front of the defender for a 16-yard gain. His next look in the end zone as Davis settled between two defenders from eight yards out and caught a rocket thrown right between the numbers from Tannehill. Davis took a shot to the head just after making the catch, but he still held on to the ball for his second touchdown of the season. His longest catch of the game would come midway through the fourth quarter as Tannehill hit Davis with a dart about 14-yards downfield that split two defenders. Davis made the catch and quickly turned upfield to complete a 38-yard reception.
2019 Week 8 vs TB (6 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was nowhere to be found in this week's win over the Buccaneers, finishing with just two receptions for nine yards. He was targeted six times, one of which was a well-thrown deep ball just barely batted out of his hands near the end of the first quarter. Davis also saw a deep target in the end zone but couldn't successfully compete for the ball to haul it in.
2019 Week 9 vs CAR (5 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was involved in the passing game with more than one deep ball opportunity, but he could not connect on any of them as his opportunities were either underthrown or defended well. Leading into halftime, Davis actually had accounted for a net negative yardage total for the team as he only had one 11-yard reception but was called for a 15-yard facemask penalty earlier in the half. It wasn't until the fourth quarter when the Titans were driving in garbage time that Davis was more involved and hauled in three of his four receptions.
2018 Week 1 vs MIA (13 / 6 / 62 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was a very big part of this Titans offense early and often, finishing with a career-high 13 targets. The issue here is that Davis really didn't do much with those targets as he only managed to haul in six of them for 62 yards. His first catch of the game was a great wheel route across the middle for a 17-yard pickup. Davis then led off the next drive with a 10 yard gain from a short pass. Davis seemed to struggle under solid coverage from rookie cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick and Xavien Howard throughout the day, as they were instrumental to some of his missed targets. Davis had a chance to score near the goal line during the first half, but he simply could not overcome the coverage from Fitzpatrick to haul in the catch.
2018 Week 2 vs HOU (7 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis led the team in targets (7) for the second straight week in a game that did not set up well for wide receivers with the run-heavy game script. With Blaine Gabbert under center, very few risks were taken in the passing game as nearly every reception by Davis came from within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. Davis did not receive a target until late in the first quarter when showed his physicality with a big stiff arm at the tail end of a third-down reception to help pick up a few extra yards for the first down. The final drive of the game would be his most productive as Davis sprinted across the field to get open on a crossing route near the start of the drive, hauling in a 13-yard reception to move the chains. Later in the drive, Davis caught a screen pass and weaved his way upfield showing great acceleration and power as he broke two tackles on his way to an 18-yard gain before brought down. Davis did cough up the ball at the end of the run, but it was batted out of bounds.
2018 Week 3 vs JAX (4 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was only targeted four times as the Titans offense was extremely limited with an injured Marcus Mariota at the helm for three-quarters of play. Davis did lead the team in receiving yards though, fueled by a 22-yard reception near the start of the second half. On 1st-and-20, this was a simple comeback route where Davis stopped on a dime to haul in the short pass before breaking through an arm tackle to accelerate across the first down line. Davis would have another big situational catch on 3rd-and-5 to move the chains as he hauled in shallow slant route right at the first down marker before getting a few extra yards on sheer effort for a 12-yard gain.
2018 Week 4 vs PHI (15 / 9 / 161 / 1 rec)
Corey Davis had a heck of a game this week as he led the team in all receiving categories while hauling in the first regular season touchdown of his career. Davis could have started off the day with a huge splash had Mariota been able to connect with him on a deep ball that surely would have been a touchdown. Davis instead settled for a 28-yard reception as his only catch of the first drive. Davis led off the next drive with another deep reception for 25 yards. He was peppered with targets throughout the game with more impactful gains up until his longest play of the game, which came in a big spot midway through the fourth quarter. On the first play of the drive, Davis streaked down the field at full speed as Mariota hit him perfectly in stride for a 51-yard reception that put the Titans in great shape to eventually find the end zone to take the lead. His next big moment came at the end of overtime as Davis hauled in the game-winning touchdown reception-- a 10-yard grab on which he elevated to bring in the contested catch to close this one out.
2018 Week 5 vs BUF (6 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was the Titans' top target again this week, but he only managed 49 yards against tough coverage from Tre'Davious White. Davis started with a quiet first quarter outside of a short screen pass for four yards. Late in the first half, Davis made the catch and showed some extra effort to pick up the last couple yards on 3rd-and-11 deep in Titans territory to pick up the first down and keep their drive alive. His biggest play of the game would come midway through the third quarter as Mariota connected with Davis stealing across the middle of the field on a crossing route for 23 yards.
2018 Week 6 vs BAL (4 / 1 / 24 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis had a tough day, as did the rest of the Titans offense. Marcus Mariota only completed 10 passes as he was too busy running for his life. Davis struggled to get open quickly though, making it hard for Mariota to find him. Davis' one reception came on a play where Davis made a nice move away from the cornerback to attack the football and make the reception. This 24-yard catch was the longest play on offense for the Titans.
2018 Week 7 vs LAC (7 / 3 / 10 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis had another forgettable outing despite improved play from the offense as a whole. He was second in targets on the team, but only managed 10 yards from three receptions. Davis dropped what would have been a third-down conversion of at least 10 yards in the fourth quarter as the well-thrown pass bounced right off his hands. Davis also had a good look at a ball in the end zone, but he could not haul in what would have been a tough catch in traffic.
2018 Week 9 vs DAL (10 / 6 / 56 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
Corey Davis was peppered with 34.5 percent of Mariota's targets in this game as he was used as a true WR1. Many of the targets for Davis were of the dink and dunk variety though, as he finished with only two receptions of more than 10 yards--both coming in the first quarter. Davis nearly hauled in a touchdown early in the fourth quarter as he was wide open in the end zone, but Mariota just slightly overthrew him, allowing Davis to get just one hand on the ball. As time wound down late in the fourth quarter, Davis converted on a critical third down with a curl route for eight yards to help set up the Titans' game-clinching touchdown.
2018 Week 10 vs NE (10 / 7 / 125 / 1 rec)
Corey Davis was the absolute focal point of the Titans passing offense in this game, receiving 10 targets while accounting for over half the team's total receiving yards while the next closest player saw just three targets with 45 receiving yards. Davis got it going on the first drive with a fingertip catch streaking across the middle of the field for 24 yards. He drew a pass interference penalty on the next drive before hauling in a 16-yard reception to pick up a long first down. Davis would cap that drive off by hauling in a spectacularly placed ball over his shoulder after beating Stephon Gilmore in coverage for the touchdown. Davis saw his next big play come just before halftime as he got plenty of separation in coverage before catching a well-thrown ball from Mariota for a 20-yard gain. Davis had a quieter second half, but he did make an acrobatic catch for short yardage near the end of the third quarter as Mariota threw the ball high and behind Davis, but Davis fully extended to pluck the ball out of the air.
2018 Week 11 vs IND (4 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Corey Davis had a tough outing with only four targets as this Titans passing offense struggled all day. Davis would help convert a third down on the first drive of the game with his first reception going for seven yards over the middle. He found some separation to make a big catch downfield for 23 yards to kick off the second quarter. This was really the highlight play of the day for Davis, as he ran a great route and showed his strength after the catch to basically carry a defender for another seven or so yards until being brought down. Outside of this play and a few other dink and dunk receptions, it was a huge disappointment as his stock dropped significantly once Blaine Gabbert came into the game--seeing just two incomplete targets in the second half.
2018 Week 12 vs HOU (4 / 4 / 96 / 1 rec, 1 / 39 / 0 rush)
Corey Davis got started with a nice route to the sideline for a 19-yard catch on the first drive of the game. He then drew a defensive pass interference call 33-yards downfield on the very next play. Davis would contribute on the ground in a big way here with a 39-yard rush coming from an end around fed his way by way of Derrick Henry, who took the direct snap. It was an innovative play call that took the Texans secondary by surprise as Davis easily accelerated past the chasing defensive linemen before finally running into a couple defenders. With this play, Davis actually finished as the leading rusher for the Titans. It was not his longest play of the evening though, as Davis ran a spec spectacular double move, cutting out and up before hauling in a big 48-yard touchdown reception at the end of the third quarter. The ball was very slightly underthrown, but Davis slowed down to make the catch before cutting back inside to split the defenders on his way to the end zone.
2018 Week 13 vs NYJ (7 / 3 / 42 / 1 rec, 1 / 12 / 0 rush)
Corey Davis had an up and down outing as Mariota spread the ball out to nine different receivers with no one receiving option seeing more than three receptions. Davis led the team in targets, but he only managed to haul in three of those seven. His second touch of the day was an end around that Davis took for 12 yards to the left side--matching the longest run of any Titans rusher outside of Mariota. Only a couple plays later, Davis was flagged for an illegal block that negated what would have been a 20-yard pass play to Cameron Batson. Davis also didn't help himself by dropping a routine screen pass thrown right to him on their drive midway through the second quarter. His first big catch and longest gain of the day was for 22 yards, coming from a dig route late in the first half as Davis found plenty of room in soft coverage. Outside of a couple deep balls near the start of the second half, Davis was virtually invisible until what would be the final meaningful play for the Titans offense as Davis hauled in the game-winning touchdown from 11 yards out. He caught it just a few yards from the goal line and managed to power his way over the line for the score--his third touchdown in the last four weeks.
2018 Week 14 vs JAX (3 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
With a dominant ground game, Corey Davis and the passing offense did not have a chance to make many plays this week. Davis only managed to bring in two receptions, one of which was a wide open look on 3rd-and-5 for 13 yards. Davis drew a long pass interference penalty just before halftime that could have otherwise been a long touchdown as Davis was on track to be wide open. He also had an end zone look in the fourth quarter when the Titans went for it on fourth and goal, but the ball sailed right through his hands. It was a pass that should have been caught.
2018 Week 15 vs NYG (6 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was held in check with the poor weather and low volume passing attack in this game. He led the team in targets with six, but only managed to haul in three of them for 33 yards. Two of his three receptions came on the second drive of the game, with one going for 17 yards as the longest pass play of the game as Davis did a great job hauling in the reception while falling to the ground to convert on a long third down.
2018 Week 16 vs WAS (5 / 3 / 45 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
His best play of the day came on the first drive as Davis took advantage of soft coverage with an easy 16-yard reception over the middle. He would catch one more pass from Marcus Mariota before halftime, then managed to haul in just one reception in tight coverage to start off the second half. This outing marks the third game in a row, and fourth in five weeks, that Davis has failed to exceed 45 receiving yards.
2018 Week 17 vs IND (7 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis finished as the leading receiver for the Titans, but most of his targets and receptions came on short passes with six of his seven targets all in the first half. Davis did see a deep ball from Gabbert on the second drive of the game, but it was thrown into double coverage with Davis not having much of a chance at making the catch. He took advantage of soft, prevent coverage with seconds remaining in the first half to make a 16-yard reception. He would follow that up with another short six-yard reception to get the Titans well within field goal range. Davis had just one target in the second half, which would end up being his longest play of the game as the Titans fooled the Colts defense on a play fake from their own three-yard line. Gabbert would find Davis in the middle of the field as Davis did a great job coming back to the ball to complete the 18-yard reception.
2017 Week 1 vs OAK (10 / 6 / 69 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis had a very solid outing in his regular season debut, hauling in six receptions for 69 yards. Davis certainly did not look like he had been dealing with a hamstring injury, as he appeared very quick off the line and was routinely finding space against the Raiders cornerbacks. Davis shined on his first catch of the game, hauling in a well-thrown ball over the head of a defender while falling backwardsˇgood for 23 yards, his longest reception of the day. Davis led the team in targets with 10 total, however, four of those came on the Titans last drive with Marcus Mariota targeting him on four consecutive plays. While Davis was not on the field as much as the likes of Rishard Matthews or Delanie Walker, expect for him to quickly turn into a significant contributor in this offense.
2017 Week 2 vs JAX (3 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis hauled in only one catch for four yards as he battled with the Jaguars talented secondary for most of this game. Davis was targeted on a deep ball on the Titans last drive to close out the first half, but the throw was just slightly off. Davis was forced to exit in the third quarter after aggravating his hamstring, but he later returned to help out with run blocking in the fourth quarter. Keep an eye on his status throughout practice this week, as Davis struggled with his hamstring throughout preseason this year.
2017 Week 9 vs BAL (5 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis saw his first action since Week 2 this season, and he was held to a relatively quiet fantasy day with only one notable play to speak of despite playing 40 of 52 snaps for the Titans. The big highlight from Davis cane near the end of the first quarter as he hauled in a beautiful back shoulder throw on the sideline for 23 yards.
2017 Week 10 vs CIN (10 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis led the Titans in targets with 10, but he only managed to grab four of them for 40 receiving yards. Davis hauled in his first two targets in this game for nine and 15 yards. On this 15-yard reception, Davis pivoted back to the ball just in time, actually looking surprised as the ball was out of Mariota's hands while Davis's back was still turned. Davis bobbled it, but did bring in the reception, showing great control and focus. In the third quarter Davis hauled in a nice catch underneath into the red zone, and he had a good run at the goal line but the ball came loose while he extended for the pylon. While the play was originally called a touchdown, it was overturned and ruled as a touchback instead. Davis would not have another reception after that play.
2017 Week 11 vs PIT (7 / 3 / 27 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis was targeted seven times but only managed to haul in three of them for 27 yards on the day. Both of his decent receptions came in the first half as he amassed 25 yards between those two catches. Outside of those plays, Davis really did not look sharp, with two passes thrown his way actually getting intercepted-including one where Davis simply did not run through his route and allowed the defender to cut him off for the pick. Davis is playing plenty of snaps and getting targets, so even though he hasn't surpassed 50 yards in a game this season, he will have a big game sooner or later.
2017 Week 12 vs IND (4 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Despite his meager stat line, Corey Davis was a big part of what was a limited Titans passing attack this week. He made some very athletic plays to haul in all four of his targets as Marcus Mariota did not have his most accurate of days. His most spectacular play came on the Titans' game-winning drive midway through the fourth quarter as Davis made a leaping catch across the middle of the field to get the Titans into Colts territory.
2017 Week 13 vs HOU (4 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis caught one pass for 13 yards on the first play of the game, but he was relatively invisible aside from that. He was targeted four times and did haul in one other catch, but Davis couldn't get anything going as he was fairly well-covered for most of the day.
2017 Week 14 vs ARI (6 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis saw a few nice deep ball targets in this game, but he couldn't come up with any of them as he finished with a very meager stat line. One of those deep balls came early in the second quarter and would have been a big play for the struggling Titans offense, but Mariota's throw was just slightly behind Davis making it tough for him to make a play on the ball. Davis's best play of the game came on the two-minute drill going into halftime as Davis ran a great corner route to haul in a 22-yard reception to set up a long field goal that the Titans would miss.
2017 Week 15 vs SF (5 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis had another underwhelming day as he saw just five targets, hauling in three of them for 28 yards. Davis ran a solid out route to lead off the Titans' final drive of the game as he picked up 13 yards for his longest play of the game. Mariota tried to find Davis on a couple deep shots but simply could not connect. Davis now has three straight games with three or fewer receptions and fewer than 30 receiving yards, still having failed to match his Week 1 stat line since returning from injury.
2017 Week 16 vs LAR (9 / 6 / 91 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis had a career day as he finally exceeded his Week 1 yardage total, leading the team last week with 91 receiving yards. He made a spectacular grab midway through the first quarter as he plucked the ball over the head of a defender while sprinting across a route downfield for the 18-yard gain. Early in the second half, Davis has his longest play of the day on a comeback route in the middle of the field that Davis then proceeded to turn upfield for another 15 yards for a total gain of 37 yards.
2017 Week 17 vs JAX (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis finished without a single reception on two targets as he was shut down by the Jaguars cornerbacks in this last game of the regular season.
2017 Week 18 vs KC (7 / 4 / 35 / 0 rec)
Corey Davis finished second in targets last week with seven total, hauling in four of them for just 35 yards. His longest play of the game went for 12 yards on a short route designed for Davis on which the slot receiver screened the cornerback on Davis, leaving Davis open to haul in the pass and fight downfield for some extra yards after the catch. Davis should have had a 22-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter as he was wide open running down the sideline, but Marcus Mariota grossly overthrew him before hitting Eric Decker with the touchdown strike on the very next play.
2017 Week 19 vs NE (8 / 5 / 63 / 2 rec)
Corey Davis had the game of his career during this divisional playoff matchup as he tied for a team-leading eight targets with both of the Titans touchdowns. Davis started the game with an 11-yard out route on the Titans first possession. His next reception would be one of the biggest of his career as this was Davis's first career touchdown reception. It was a highlight reel play on which Davis executed a nice stop-and-go route that Mariota led him perfectly on to the back corner of the end zone. Davis, in full stride, hauled in the ball with one arm and pinned it to his body to maintain control for the touchdown. Davis would later come up big on a fourth-and-11 play on the Titans' final drive of the game as he tapped his toes before going out of bounds to haul in a 17-yard reception that kept the Titans drive alive. Just a few plays later, Davis found the end zone for a second time as he caught yet another fourth-down pass with an 11-yard toe-tapper falling out of bounds in the end zone.
