WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis is signing with the Falcons on a two-year deal.

Davis follows up a career year with the Panthers to get a starting job (at least right now) in Atlanta, which was arguably the best landing spot available for free agent running backs. Arthur Smith should lean more on the pass than he did with Tennessee considering the personnel the Falcons have, but Davis possesses a three-down skillset to potentially be drafted as a strong RB2. We’ll see how the rest of the offseason plays out.

The Panthers have claimed Mike Davis off waivers.

Davis was released by the Bears last week, and it's not a surprise that another team claimed him. In Carolina, there won't be much work for the veteran behind Christian McCaffrey, but he should now be viewed as the top handcuff and could potentially see some short-yardage work.

The Bears are releasing Mike Davis.

Davis announced the news on Twitter by thanking Chicago, and he will now hit waivers. The Bears made the decision to release the veteran back because a) it nets them a compensatory pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and b) rookie David Montgomery has stepped up as the clear leader in the backfield. Davis going someplace like Detroit could lead to immediate fantasy value.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis is inactive for Week 4.

Davis is a healthy scratch, as the Bears will roll with a backfield of mostly rookie David Montgomery and Tarik Cohen against the Vikings. Davis was apparently set for a big role in Chicago's offense this season, but it's decreased each week. It won't be surprised if the team lets Davis go so he can sign elsewhere soon.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis intends to sign with the Bears, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The deal cannot become official until the start of the new league year on Wednesday, but Rapoport calls it a "big payday," though that likely could be because Davis worked his way from a former fifth-round pick that spent time on the practice squad to earning a nice deal in free agency. Davis' arrival probably doesn't mean Jordan Howard it on his way out of Chicago despite trade rumors popping up again this year. Davis averaged 4.6 yards per carry while mixing in for 112 carries in Seattle's committee backfield last season. He might have a similar role with the Bears.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis handles six touches in playoff loss.

Davis rushed four times for ten yards and caught two passes for 22 yards. He also ran in a two-point conversion as Seattle played without kicker Sebastian Janikowski (hamstring) in the second half. Davis, who turns 26 next month, will now enter unrestricted free agency coming off the best season of his career.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis scores against the Cardinals.

Davis carried seven times for 44 yards and a touchdown along with two receptions for 12 yards in the Seahawks' Week 17 victory. Davis' regular season ends with 112 carries for 514 yards and four touchdowns along with 34 receptions for 214 yards and one touchdown as a very good change-of-pace option behind starter Chris Carson. During the postseason, Davis is likely to get at least a few touches per game for Seattle.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis rushed seven times for 31 yards in Sunday night's win over Kansas City.

Davis was targeted just once in the passing game, so while the high-scoring game script worked in his favor, Seattle was able to simply move the ball on the ground with Chris Carson turning 27 carries into 116 yards and two scores. The Seahawks almost certainly won't have to throw next week against the Cardinals, so Davis will be just a decent FLEX in standard leagues.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis handles 13 touches in Week 15 loss.

Davis rushed five times for 21 yards and added eight receptions for 63 yards. The veteran saw more work as Rashaad Penny (knee) sat, and he paid off for those who relied on him as a FLEX in PPR leagues. Next week could turn into a shootout against the Chiefs, so Davis will remain on the FLEX radar, especially if Penny misses another game.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis handles four touches in win over the Vikings.

Davis rushed three times for 22 yards, also adding a five-yard reception. The Seahawks pounded it with Chris Carson (22 attempts) for the most part, and Davis has settled in as the clear No. 3 back that probably needs a shootout to provide fantasy value. Seattle takes on San Francisco in Week 15.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis handles four touches in win over the 49ers.

Davis rushed four times for ten yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game. The backfield looks to have cleared up with Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny operated as the clear 1A and 1B options, so Davis probably needs an injury to become a significant fantasy contributor down the stretch. Seattle takes on Minnesota next Monday night.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gets four carries in Week 12.

Davis gained 14 yards on his four attempts against the Panthers. Chris Carson is the Seattle running back to play in fantasy lineups, and Davis doesn't need to be owned on fantasy rosters right now.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gets six touches in Seahawks' win.

Davis carried four times for 26 yards and added two receptions for 24 yards in the Thursday night victory against the Packers. While he seemed to play in most passing situations, Davis appeared to be third in the backfield rotation behind Chris Carson (17 carries, 83 yards, touchdown) and Rashaad Penny (eight carries, 46 yards), though it is worth noting that Davis was in at the end of the game with the Seahawks trying to run out the clock. All the running backs in the backfield are doing a good job, but Davis is difficult to trust in fantasy lineups right now. Tonight gave some clarity on the situation, and Carson appears locked in as the back to own and insert into lineups.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis scores against the Rams.

Davis drew the start with Chris Carson (hip) out and carried 11 times for 58 yards along with four receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a play-action pass where he got wide-open in the flat after the fake. Rookie Rashaad Penny (12 carries, 108 yards, touchdown) also ran the ball well, but Davis should continue getting a solid amount of work in the backfield. However, if Carson returns this Thursday night against the Packers, it could potentially complicate Davis' workload.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gets 22 touches against the Chargers.

Chris Carson left the game with a hip injury, which gave Davis an opportunity to be the top guy in Seattle's backfield. Davis carried 15 times for 62 yards and added seven receptions for 45 yards in the Week 9 loss. Overall, he played well, and he'd be a starting fantasy option if Carson misses more time with the injury. But there would be some risk with first-round rookie Rashaad Penny potentially taking the lead in the backfield if Seattle wants to give him a crack at it.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gets 11 touches in Seahawks' win.

Davis carried ten times for 33 yards and added one reception for two yards against the Lions. Chris Carson handled 27 touches and is the clear leader in Seattle's backfield, but Davis was clearly ahead of first-round rookie Rashaad Penny (zero touches). Davis is a deep-league FLEX option for Week 9 against the Chargers.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gets seven touches in Seahawks' win.

Davis carried six times for 21 yards and caught one pass for five yards, as he continued to mix in the backfield with Chris Carson in the win against the Raiders. However, first-round rookie Rashaad Penny (11 touches, 70 yards) received a good amount of work, too. Davis will be difficult to trust as potentially the third members of the backfield rotation when Seattle returns from its bye week.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Pete Carroll says Mike Davis will continue to have a role even when Chris Carson returns.

Davis had a big game with 101 rushing yards on 21 carries in yesterday's win against the Cardinals while Carson sat with a hip injury. With first-rounder Rashaad Penny also in the mix, this looks like it'll be a full-blown committee moving forward. It could be a weekly headache for fantasy owners, but Davis might be worth an add if you're looking for a running back.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis handles 25 touches, scores twice in Week 4 win.

Taking full advantage of his opportunity with Chris Carson (hip) inactive, Davis rushed 21 times for 101 yards and two touchdowns, also adding four receptions for 23 yards. It was obviously a great showing for Seattle and those who went with Davis in a spot start, but the backfield will probably now be thrown into complete disarray for the foreseeable future. If Carson is out again next week, Davis will be on the RB2/FLEX radar, but he will be difficult to trust if everyone is healthy against the Rams.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gets one touch in Week 3.

Davis caught one pass for seven yards. Chris Carson seemingly has full control of Seattle's backfield, so Davis isn't a fantasy option at the moment.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gets four touches against Chicago.

Davis was active as a fourth running back for Seattle, and he got some time later in the game, carrying three times for three rushing yards and adding one reception for -1 receiving yards. Davis is more of a real-life contributor and should not be trusted in fantasy lineups at the moment.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis is a healthy scratch for the Seahawks.

Seattle is going with Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, and C.J. Prosise as their three running backs against the Broncos. Davis is likely to be active at some point this year, but he's not worth keeping on standard-sized fantasy rosters at the moment.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis is re-signing with the Seahawks on a one-year deal, according to Ian Rapoport.

After playing well in stretches last season when given an opportunity with Seattle, Davis will be back in the mix for them in 2018. The Seahawks are likely to add more in the backfield to go along with Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise, but the 25-year-old Davis might have an opportunity to carve out a solid role for a team that pushes competition for starting spots.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gest 12 touches in Week 17.

Davis had ten carries for 48 yards and two receptions for 16 yards against Arizona. Davis' seasons ends with 68 carries for 240 rushing yards and 15 receptions for 131 receiving yards. The running back situation for Seattle is very much up in the air for 2018, but it'll likely be Chris Carson or someone else that leads it over Davis.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis contained in Week 16 win.

Davis rushed 15 times for 25 yards in the 21-12 victory. We could see yet another backfield shakeup for Seattle in Week 17 after Thomas Rawls looked like the best runner with five attempts for 20 yards, so Davis will be a risky FLEX play against the Cardinals. We would look elsewhere.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gets eight touches in Week 15.

Davis carried six times for 19 yards and added two receptions (on two targets) for 20 yards versus the Rams. The Seahawks basically abandoned the run when they got in a huge hole early in the game to Los Angeles, so Davis didn't have many opportunities. For a team that isn't running the ball well, Davis doesn't have a ton of upside against the Cowboys next week.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis leads backfield in Week 14 loss.

Davis rushed 15 times for 66 yards and caught a pass for negative-one yard. He and J.D. McKissic were the only backs to record a touch, so Davis looks locked in as the early-down runner for Seattle down the stretch. With the Rams coming to town in Week 15, Davis should be on the FLEX radar.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis gets 20 touches against Philadelphia.

After missing last week with a groin issue, Davis jumped right back in as the clear lead back for the Seahawks, carrying 16 times for 64 yards and adding four receptions (on four targets) for 37 yards. As long as Seattle is feeding Davis this many touches per game, he's at least a FLEX option in fantasy lineups.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis (groin) was a full participant in today's practice.

Davis is now fully on track to play on Sunday night against the Eagles. There's a chance he's thrown right in there and gets most of the work in Seattle's backfield like he did before he injured his groin a couple weeks ago, but Davis has a very low floor against the top-notch run defense of the Eagles. He's more of a bench stash right now.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis (groin) is inactive against the 49ers.

Davis didn't practice all week and was listed as doubtful coming into today, so this was expected. Thomas Rawls is now active after being a healthy scratch last week, so we'll see how the workloads in the backfield work out today after Davis received the majority of the work last week.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis (groin) is doubtful for Sunday.

Davis didn't practice all week, so even if he is active against the 49ers, he'd be difficult to trust in fantasy lineups. Expect him to be inactive, with a better chance to play in Week 13.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis (groin) did not practice today.

There is not much optimism about Davis' Week 12 status, though perhaps he'll make a great recovery before Sunday. Consider him extremely doubtful for now, though, with Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls, and J.D. McKissic all likely to handle the backfield work.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis leaves Monday night game with a groin injury.

Davis won't return to the game. This is really some bad luck for Davis, as he was getting a prime opportunity with the Seahawks to become the starter for the rest of the season until this third-quarter groin injury. Before leaving Davis had six carries for 18 yards and caught two passes for 41 yards, as he ran with a lot of juice when he got the ball and was clearly ahead of Eddie Lacy for carries in the backfield. By the looks of things, Davis might not be ready for Week 12 against the 49ers.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

The Seahawks cut running back Mike Davis.

Davis is a talented player, but he and Alex Collins both fell victim to the numbers game in Seattle—especially with seventh-round rookie Chris Carson being extremely impressive. There will be interest in Davis from other teams, and he might be able to sign in the next few days.

Mike Davis | Ravens RB

Mike Davis scores in preseason game against the Vikings.

David had a 38-yard carry (six carries for 37 yards total) and a 22-yard touchdown reception. The touchdown came from Russell Wilson late in the first half. Still, Davis might have a tough time making Seattle's final roster with the team having such a deep backfield.
