Summary

Davis was a second round pick of the Steelers in 2016 and has become a cornerstone of the defense over his first three seasons. He is fast, smart, has the cover skills of a corner and the physical nature of a linebacker. The versatility of Davis give coaches a lot of options. He can line up in either safety spot, slide up in the box as an inside linebacker or slip out to the slot in coverage. The best production of Davis's young career came in 2017 when his 71 tackles, 22 assists, 5 takeaways, 8 pass breakups and a sack landed him among the top ten defensive backs in balanced scoring formats. That season he lined up at strong safety and spent a lot of time up in the box where the thick of the action is. Last season Davis shifted to the free safety role playing center field, helping with over the top coverage and generally working as a safety net. The impact on his statistical production was huge as Davis slipped considerably in all categories, landing outside the top 50. With Morgan Burnett gone the Steelers could use their safeties a bit differently in 2019 but it is unlikely Davis will move back to strong safety or fantasy relevance anytime soon. (May 17)
