2. Corey Davis
ADP: 7.11 (83 Overall) or WR30
My Ranking: WR25
Corey Davis has the makings of a true X receiver. He has 2018’s target share—25.6 percent—to prove it. For perspective, that’s a higher target rate than Antonio Brown.
Free-agent acquisition Adam Humphries is expected to eat up most of the targets from the slot, and in 2019, Davis should operate primarily on the perimeter where an X belongs.
Let’s not forget that he is money when the stakes are high.
Corey Davis has WR2 upside, and it’s clear as day. He’s a guy I’m willing to live and die by. Yes, I am a homer. I have seen him with my own two eyes at every home game for the last two years and he is a stud.
However, Davis’ draft stock is plummeting because of his per-game inconsistencies. This is opening the door to significant value. Make your opponents pay, and let him slide right to you.
Remember, WRs tend to break out in year 3—just saying.
2019 Projection: 73 REC, 1,003 YDS, 6 TDS, 55 RUSH YDS
