COREY DAVIS HAS BREAKOUT YEAR
Versus the Eagles in 2018, Davis had nine receptions for 191 yards and the game-winning touchdown in overtime. That’s the first game to come to mind for me. He also had a pretty decent game versus the New England Patriots that same season, going for 125 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions.
Other than games like that, he’s produced wide-receiver-two numbers for the Tennessee Titans, which isn’t bad but definitely not what you would expect from a 5th overall pick. Davis has yet to have a 1,000-yard season, and the closest he’s gotten was in 2018 with 891 yards.
Easy to say that Davis has been less than stellar his entire career. However, in 2020 he has all the reasons to finally breakout.
Let’s start with the fact that the Titans finally have continuity on offense. Ten starters from the same offense that raced its way to the AFC Championship are returning, and add onto that some continuity at the offensive coordinator position as well.
In 2020, Davis will see the same faces and same system that his offense thrived in in the latter part of 2019. That sets him up very well for success.
Another fact is his friend on the other end, A.J. Brown, had one fantastic outing in his rookie season. Brown has garnered the attention of the NFL and will definitely see defense’s best cornerbacks next season and possibly some double-coverage or shadows.
Davis will be able to take advantage of that as he will be matched up with CB2s and single-coverage in most games. Not to mention the fact that he is on his contract season, so he’ll be extra motivated to make plays on a consistent basis.
