WR Trevor Davis - Miami Dolphins
|6-1, 188||Born: 7-4-1993||College: California||Drafted: Round 5, pick 2016|
Week 15: at New York Giants
FBG says: Great matchup. Ryan Fitzpatrick has led a high-volume passing attack that, in spite of some recent strong performances, has posted bottom-feeding numbers across the board. The Dolphins' passing game has posted 15 touchdowns to 17 interceptions on the season, the 26th and 31st-best numbers in the league, respectively, to this point. At just 5.3 net yards per attempt, the efficiency of the unit is abysmal, ranking 30th in the league, and it is primarily a product of a lack of talent in the receiving corps. DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson, the team's top two wide receivers following the injury to Preston Williams, are both in concussion protocol, and their status for this weekend's game is uncertain. Expect Isaiah Ford and Allen Hurns to step up in their absence, with Mike Gesicki contributing at the tight end position. Ford led the way with 9 targets, 6 receptions, and 92 receiving yards last weekend without Parker and Wilson. This weekend, a soft matchup and high passing volume could foster another unexpectedly strong day for Miami through the day. The New York Giants' pass defense is one of the weakest in the NFL, as they have allowed 6 300-yard passers and 7 multi-touchdown performances through the air. Last weekend, a depleted Philadelphia Eagles' aerial attack posted 325 yards and 2 touchdowns, including over 132 yards and 12 catches from their two tight ends. The Giants struggle to put pressure on opposing quarterbacks, with the sixth-lowest hurry rate of any team in the league, even their number-one pass rusher, Markus Golden's, pass-rushing numbers are misleading. Golden leads the way with 8.5 sacks on the season, but he is converting his pressures into sacks at a wildly unsustainable rate, and when he is not taking down opposing quarterbacks, he rarely applies pressure otherwise. In the secondary, the Giants are especially weak, with Janoris Jenkins and DeAndre Baker grading as two of the weakest cover-corners in the NFL. The Giants have allowed 10 separate 100-yard or multi-touchdown performances to opposing pass-catchers this season. This weekend, look for tight end Mike Gesicki and DeVante Parker or Albert Wilson, if healthy, to capitalize on this soft matchup against one of the league's weakest pass defenses.

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.
