Davis rushed nine times for 23 yards in the regular season finale Sunday against the Chargers.

Davis saw a jump from the two carries he saw in Week 16, but hasn't rushed for more than 50 yards since Week 4 against the Patriots. He finishes the 2014 season with 134 carries for 463 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 3.5 yards per carry. With Jamaal Charles still under contract next season, Davis will likely again serve as the primary backup, but won't have much value if Charles is healthy. However, should Charles go down with an injury as he did early in the season, Davis has proven the ability to take on a workhorse load, rushing 70 times over a three week span for 318 yards and three touchdowns from Week 2 to Week 4.

Davis rushed two times for two yards Sunday against the Steelers, adding one reception for nine yards.

Davis remains far behind Jamaal Charles at running back, but remains an injury away from becoming a formidable fantasy option. However, Week 17 is upcoming and Jamaal Charles will play barring something unexpected, likely meaning the end of Davis' fantasy relevance for the season.

Davis scored a pair of touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) in the third quarter of Sunday's 31-13 win over the Raiders. He finished with nine carries for 11 yards and his lone catch went for a 70-yard touchdown.

Davis was literally doing nothing until midway through the third quarter, when Jamaal Charles took a tough hit. Although Charles passed a concussion test, the Chiefs elected to go with Davis, who promptly scored on a three-yard rushing touchdown. He later used his speed, taking a short Alex Smith pass all the way to the end zone. Keep an eye on Charles' practice routine next week, in case he starts having concussion symptoms, as Davis would have tremendous value at Pittsburgh.

Davis had one carry for four yards and three receptions for three yards Sunday against the Cardinals.

Most of Davis' work came in the absence of Jamaal Charles, who left briefly with a knee and ankle injury. It was revealed after the game that Charles is dealing with a swollen knee, and could give Davis fantasy relevance if it causes him to miss time.

Davis saw just two offensive snaps Sunday against the Broncos.

Davis failed to record a stat, and Jamaal Charles has once again taken the workhorse role, playing 96 percent of the snaps. He appears to have fallen far out of favor in the backfield, though Davis isn't great in the passing game and the Chiefs were playing from behind the whole game. He will likely continue in a limited offensive role.

Davis had two carries for two yards in Thursday's 24-20 loss to the Raiders.

Jamaal Charles rarely left the field in a close game, leaving Davis with little opportunity to make an impact. One of Davis' carries went for a three-yard gain on first down, while the other went for a one-yard loss on third-and-one. Davis could see extra work in blowouts, but with the Chiefs in the midst of a tight playoff race, Charles is going to dominate the workload when healthy.

Davis rushed five times for 10 yards and a touchdown against the Seahawks.

Davis also caught one pass for eight yards in the contest. He remains a distant second to Jamaal Charles in the Chiefs' rushing attack. He does have five touchdowns on the season, but three of those came while Jamaal Charles was sidelined with an ankle injury.

Davis rushed four times for one yards Sunday against the Bills.

Davis also lost a fumble in the game, and is now firmly out of the game plan for the Chiefs. He doesn't serve much fantasy value with Jamaal Charles healthy.

Davis rushed just three times for nine yards Sunday against the Jets.

Davis saw a big drop in his playing time Sunday, taking the field for just 17 percent of the snaps. His fantasy relevance is touchdown dependent with Jamaal Charles now getting most of the reps.

Davis had 16 carries for 49 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-7 win over the Rams. He also returned the opening kickoff of the second half 99 yards for another score.

The Chiefs frequently turned to Davis in the second half after they had built up a big lead, giving Jamaal Charles some rest and allowing Davis to rack up some garbage-time numbers for fantasy owners. Don't expect this level of involvement every week, especially with three tough run defenses up next on the schedule.
