Knile Davis RB KC 2 Days
Coach Andy Reid said the coaching staff is gaining more trust in Knile Davis.
"I just think it's a matter of reps under his belt and production," Reid said. "It's getting used to the NFL, protections in particular. I think everybody's got quite a bit of trust in him to go out there and do a good job." Davis was a fumbler at Arkansas, but hasn't lost a single one on 40 NFL touches so far. He's a must-own handcuff for Jamaal Charles owners heading into the final two weeks of the fantasy season.

Chiefs running backs coach Eric Bieniemy said he's pleased with Knile Davis' progress.
Davis is averaging just 1.5 touches per game over the last six weeks, but it's not that he's doing anything wrong. "I've got to do a better of getting Knile in the mix," Bieniemy said. "(But) it's hard to pull Jamaal off the field doing the things he's doing." Davis remains a solid lottery ticket stash because he'd see heavy volume if Charles were to miss time.
