WR Trevor Davis - Miami Dolphins
|6-1, 188||Born: 7-4-1993||College: California||Drafted: Round 5, pick 2016|
Week 14: at New York Jets
FBG says: Good matchup. For better or worse, Ryan Fitzpatrick has cemented himself as the 3-9 Dolphins' starter to close the season. That's a strong indictment of youngster Josh Rosen, who may have already worn his welcome out in Miami after just six appearances. Fitzpatrick has moved the ball much better than Rosen did, and his output has at least been strong in alternating weeks. Dating back to Week 6, he's posted 4 days of 280+ yards and 4 multi-touchdown games. Last Sunday represented one of his best starts in several years, going 27 of 39 for 365 yards and 3 touchdowns (with an interception) in an upset win over the Eagles. Fitzpatrick doesn't throw to much firepower, though he clearly has something going with DeVante Parker. Over 4 games since Preston Williams' injury, Parker has turned 41 targets into an average of 6 receptions and 114 yards. Last week he hauled in two impressive touchdowns, from 43 and 17 yards out, and also drew a big pass interference call in the end zone. He's now a weekly fantasy consideration, though it's always hard to pinpoint who else will produce in this attack. Tight end Mike Gesicki has drawn 6+ targets in 5 straight games, though he's only cleared 30 yards twice over that span. He's volatile, but he's the closest thing this unit has to a second fantasy option. The Jets pass defense remains a work in progress. They've shown progress of late, holding their last 3 opponents to just 5.7 yards per attempt and 201 a game. But those numbers were built on matchups with Dwayne Haskins, Derek Carr, and Andy Dalton. Prior to that, they'd been worked over by the likes of Daniel Jones (308 and 4 touchdowns), Ryan Fitzpatrick (288 and 3), and Gardner Minshew (279 and 3). Over that span, they gave up huge receiving lines to the likes of Darius Slayton (10 for 121 and 2), Chris Conley (4 for 103 and 1), and Mike Gesicki (6 for 95). The going will be even tougher if Jamal Adams, arguably the NFL's premier safety, is sidelined by an ankle sprain. Adams is counted on heavily to help a young, shaky cornerback group down the field, and his absence would make the deep ball much more attractive for Ryan Fitzpatrick. This is a favorable fantasy matchup even at full strength, though, making Fitzpatrick's sneaky Week 14 appeal even brighter.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 8 vs HOU (2 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
Davis wasn't able to come up with a slightly overthrown deep ball down the right sideline. He made a 15-yard catch on 3rd-and-20. The Texans conceded the short pass and were easily able to make the tackle short of the sticks. After playing over 75% of the snaps while Tyrell Williams was out, Davis played less than 50% of the snaps with Williams back in the lineup.
2019 Week 7 vs GB (2 / 2 / 26 / 0 rec)
Davis far and away led the Raiders receivers in snaps (76%) but still was only targeted twice. With Carr completing passes to 10 different pass catchers, none of the Raiders wide receivers saw much volume. Davis had a 20-yard reception on a comeback route but drew a flag for offensive pass interference for a small push off at the end of the route. There wasn't much there and Gruden challenged the call but it wasn't overturned. He showed nice acceleration after the catch on a slant for 16 yards.
2019 Week 5 vs CHI (4 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
Davis led the Raiders wide receivers in snaps and receiving yards. He showed nice hands to make a 21-yard grab in traffic. Davis almost cost the Raiders the game with a fumble at the goal line. On 1st-and-goal from the three, the Raiders threw a quick screen to Davis. He looked like he was going to score but had the ball punched out just shy of the goal line by a defender. He did have two hands on the ball but needed to be stronger with it.
2019 Week 4 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 2 / 74 / 1 rush)
J.J. Nelson warmed up but couldn't go, which opened the door for Davis in a big way. He played a whopping 88% of the snaps, an especially eye-opening number considering he just arrived in Oakland less than two weeks ago after spending the first few years of his career in Green Bay. Davis took advantage of his opportunity and made a great first impression for the Raiders with a pair of impressive runs. He took an end around down the left sideline for a 60-yard score, showing off his sub-4.4 speed along the way. He later had a 14-yard run that was even more impressive. The play was again designed for Davis to take the ball down the left sideline on an end around. However, the Colts read the play well and had multiple guys in position to drop Davis for a loss. He reversed field and went back in the other direction, weaving his way for a 14-yard gain.
