  • SportsGrid Staff


The 2017 NFL Draft is taking place in Philadelphia, PA, and we’re giving you fantasy analysis on everything from expected roles to bust potential.

Corey Parson (@TheFantasyExec), Emory Hunt (@FBallGameplan), and Mike Blewitt (@mikeblewitt) give their instant fantasy take on Davis’ NFL potential here, courtesy of the FNTSY Sports Network:

<h2>Corey Davis 2017 Fantasy Outlook</h2>

Jake Ciely, who has finished in the top four for fantasy football accuracy the last three years, wrote the following about Davis with the Tennessee Titans:

LOVE this pick. When I say he looks like Terrell Owens, that’s not hyperbole. Davis has the NFL body, athleticism, route running skills and moves to succeed Day 1. Davis will challenge Rishard Matthews as the team’s No. 1 option as a rookie. Matthews finished as the 13th best receiver despite seeing limited work to start the year. Davis is my 1.01 pick in dynasty and a WR3 in redraft. WR2 production is not out of the question.

<h2>Corey Davis 2017 Mock Draft Evaluation</h2>

And Jayson Braddock, in his mock draft for SportsGrid, evaluated Davis thusly prior to the draft:

13) Arizona Cardinals – WR / Corey Davis / Western Michigan – Haason Reddick just seems like an Arizona Cardinal picks. I don’t know why I’m struggling so much to put him here, but I am. I’m not buying the talk of the Cardinals selecting a quarterback here or moving up into the top 10 for one. The Cardinals are looking to win a championship with Carson Palmer. So, with that in mind, get him some weapons. Corey Davis can come in and be the #1 wide receiver in Arizona day one and he’ll be able to soak up some of Larry Fitzgerald’s wisdom before he retires. The Cards have enough speed threats in John Brown and JJ Nelson, so I wouldn’t expect them to go John Ross here, however, Mike Williams could be there preference.
