4 best Tennessee Titans players on offense through three weeks
By Will Lomas
3. Corey Davis, WR
I truly don’t know what Corey Davis must have done to make the coaching staff mad, but he is their best receiver and I don’t know why he isn’t a huge part of the offense.
Before you start commenting about how it is Mariota’s fault, remember this. In both the Indianapolis Colts game and the Cleveland Browns game, Arthur Smith’s starting offense was multiple tight ends with only one wide receiver on the field.
That wide receiver was A.J. Brown, not Corey Davis.
Despite doing all the little things well, busting his hump in training camp and making incredible catches when the ball comes his way, the Titans just aren’t using him as a WR1.
I don’t know how much stock you put in it, but there was a rumor last week that Corey Davis could have been floated as a trade candidate. If that did happen, I would imagine that it was teams asking about acquiring the receiver, not the Titans actively shopping him.
There is no doubt in my mind that when he is given volume, he is a top-20 WR in the NFL easily but the Titans just refuse to do that. Still, he is a talented player and deserves a spot on this list.
