Davis recorded three receptions on four targets for 65 yards in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

Davis had a controversial fumble late in the third quarter which set up a Carlos Hyde touchdown but the veteran made up for his mistake later in the game - recording a 51-yard reception that put Washington in the red zone. With Jordan Reed continuing to see more reps as he returns to full health, Davis figures to see a drop in production, but the veteran still manages to make a big play almost every week.

Davis caught two of three targets for 89 yards in Monday night's 29-20 loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Davis ran free for a game-long gain of 69 yards during the third quarter, inflating his production on the evening. Considering Davis went for 5/58/1 in Week 3, however, the veteran has been plenty helpful the past couple games.

Davis secured all five of his targets for 58 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-10 victory over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

It's hard to believe just how fast and nimble Davis is in his age-33 season, but he reminded a few Raiders defenders Sunday night that he's still a force to be reckoned with in this league -- namely CB Sean Smith, who was benched by Oakland after getting torched by Davis on an 18-yard scoring strike. Of course, Davis only started because Jordan Reed (chest) wasn't able to play, but Reed is averaging over four missed games per season he's been in the league, making Davis very relevant in most formats for occasional streaming purposes.

With Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) listed as questionable, Davis could take on an expanded role Sunday against Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Reed seems to be gearing up to play through the pain, but he'll likely come down to a game-time decision, which leaves fantasy owners in a precarious spot due to the Redskins' 8:30 PM ET kickoff. Jared Cook is a solid fallback option if Reed can't go, but the Oakland tight end is already owned in many leagues. Davis is freely available in the vast majority of formats, and he was uber-efficient with his 59 targets last season, hauling in 44 for 583 yards (5.9 YPT) and two scores. Davis only has one catch this season, but he averaged 3.5 receptions for 47 yards in the four games Reed missed last year.

Davis recorded one reception for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Davis has been nonexistent through the first two games of the season but with Jordan Reed (chest) currently day-to-day, the veteran tight end could be in for an uptick in production this week. Look for more updates to come once the Redskins release their practice reports later on in the week.

Davis failed to haul in his only target in Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

With Jordan Reed (toe) back in the fold this season it's expected that Davis's targets will drop. Still, the veteran tight end received 27 offensive reps (43 percent) on the day. Given Reed's lingering toe injury, Davis could be bumped up to first-string tight end at a moment's notice, although Reed didn't appear to be visibly slowed down on Sunday.

Davis caught two passes for 21 yards in Sunday's preseason win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Davis took a backseat Sunday as Jordan Reed (toe) returned to the starting role. However, the veteran still managed to snag two balls from Kirk Cousins during his 21 offensive reps. Davis will likely see a decrease in action with the first-team offense, but there's still a good chance he'll be an integral part of the unit -

especially over the next few weeks as Reed shakes off the rust from not having played all preseason.

Davis caught two of four targets for 49 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Davis, who received the start with Jordan Reed (toe) out of action, highlighted his night with a 43-yard catch and run that set up a touchdown just before halftime. The veteran still seems to be a dangerous receiving threat entering his 12th season in the league and could possibly attain fantasy relevance in 2017 if Reed were to miss time.

Davis "tweaked" his hamstring at Thursday's practice, Nora Princiotti of The Washington Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The development marks the second hit to the Redskins' tight-end corps in as many days after Jordan Reed (sprained toe) was placed on the PUP list Wednesday. Expect the team's medical and training staff to proceed cautiously with the duo, which will allow Niles Paul, Jeremy Sprinkle and Derek Carrier to receive more run with the first team. In order to bolster the position, the front office signed third-year TE E.J. Bibbs, who has one catch in seven career games.

Davis led all NFL tight ends last season with 13 missed tackles forced, according to Pro Football Focus.

EDGE Analysis

That statistic, which helps explain his lofty mark of 9.9 yards per target, is made all the more impressive by the fact Davis ranked 26th at the position in targets (59) and 23rd in receptions (44). His excellent work last season helps explain the Redskins' lack of interest in re-signing Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, as the team can always rely on more two-TE formations if Josh Doctson or Terrelle Pryor disappoints. The 33-year-old Davis will enter training camp on the wrong side of fantasy relevance in most formats, but that would change in a hurry if Jordan Reed were to suffer yet another significant injury.
