The Tennessee Titans promoted wide receiver Cody Hollister from the practice squad on Saturday, as fellow wideout Corey Davis is doubtful for Sunday.
Things aren’t looking good for Tennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis‘ availability in Week 10 against the Kansas City Chiefs, so the Titans made a roster move on Saturday.
Hollister had some solid games during the preseason for Tennessee, but failed to make the 53-man roster because of the solid depth the Titans had at the position. This is the first time this season that Hollister has been promoted.
The need for the move comes from the fact that the Titans might need another receiver with Davis being listed as doubtful after not practicing this week thanks to a hip injury. It’s pretty rare for a player to suit up with that injury designation, so chances are Davis won’t play.
As ESPN’s Turron Davenport notes, it’ll still be important to keep an eye on Davis’ pregame workout because he could come out of it OK and play.
Davis played 56 of the team’s 75 offensive snaps in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers. That was the most for any offensive player outside of the team’s offensive linemen and quarterback.
It’s still unclear when he came down with the injury, though.
Davis hasn’t been much of a contributor to fantasy squads this season, so his not suiting up in Week 10 shouldn’t be too much of a blow to fantasy owners. Granted, Davis might have been a bye week fill-in, but he’s probably as risky a start as anyone else on the waiver wire.
If possible, fantasy owners would be much better off starting rookie wideout A.J. Brown even if Davis plays. Brown is the team’s leading receiver through nine games, is a favorite target of quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and has a matchup this week that could see the Titans chasing points.
