WR Trevor Davis - Green Bay Packers
|6-1, 188||Born: 7-4-1993||College: California||Drafted: Round 5|
Week 15: at Carolina Panthers
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Packers passing offense will be a hot topic of discussion this week as there is a chance that Aaron Rodgers returns from his collarbone injury--keep a very close eye on this situation. While Brett Hundley has shown some flashes of upside with a couple three-touchdown games in his last two weeks, he has been extremely inconsistent and, for the most part, has left a lot to be desired for the Packers passing offense. Davante Adams has loved having Hundley around as he has led the team in targets in six of Hundley's seven starts with four touchdowns over that span of games. Jordy Nelson, on the other hand, will be heavily anticipating a return by Rogers as has failed to exceed 35 receiving yards with no touchdowns since Hundley took over as the starter. Compare that to averaging 58 yards per game with six touchdowns in the first six games of the season with Rodgers, and Nelson suddenly becomes a viable fantasy option again with Rodgers under center. This Panthers defense is fighting for a division title and coming off a very impressive outing against the Vikings in which they picked off Case Keenum twice while sacking him six times. Considering the fact that the Vikings had allowed just 14 sacks all season going into last week, grabbing six sacks in a single game against them is an absolutely outstanding showing by this Panthers pass-rushing group. The Packers have a bottom tier offensive line according to Matt Bitonti, so whoever plays at quarterback here should be under constant pressure. The Panthers secondary, however, has still given up plenty of yards and points to wide receivers in recent weeks as they are allowing the most receiving yards (203) and fantasy points per game to the position since Week 9. Opposing quarterbacks have also had success recently against the Panthers as they are passing for 276 yards per game with multiple passing touchdowns in four of the last six games. The Panthers are certainly more opportunistic with six interceptions over that last six-game span compared to only one in their first seven games, but the yards and touchdowns have still been there for opposing offenses. All three cornerbacks can be exploited here, so as long as Rodgers or Hundley have time in the pocket, the Packers receivers should have a great shot at getting open.

Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 14 vs CLE (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Davis was mostly on special teams returning punts and kicks, though he was targeted once on an incomplete pass in the fourth quarter.
2017 Week 12 vs PIT (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 4 / 0 rush)
A wide receiver by trade, Davis was on the field for just three snaps, one resulting in a sweep which gained him four yards.
2017 Week 9 vs DET (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Davis saw a little action on Monday night, with some work both as a receiver and a carry. Overall, he isn't going to see much opportunity barring an injury, and what he will get isn't likely to amount to much considering the challenges the Packers passing offense faces under center.
2017 Week 2 vs ATL (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Davis was mostly in the game to shag punts, which he did OK with. He was targeted just once, on a short pass which he tan out of bounds to stop the clock, and was flagged for an illegal shift two plays before that.
