Corey Davis: Early waiver wire option in Week 12

Corey Davis stood out in Sunday’s contest as a potential early waiver wire option in Week 12.

A.J. Brown is still the Tennessee Titans’ top pass catcher but Corey Davis is gaining ground on the WR1 fast. Davis’s performance in his team’s Week 11 win over the Baltimore Ravens could make fantasy managers reevaluate his worth ahead of Week 12. We think he is a viable waiver wire pickup in season-long fantasy.

Davis tallied five catches for 113 yards against the Ravens’ elite secondary in Week 11. He now has three 100-yard games on the year and his stats are eerily similar to Brown’s. Davis leads Tennessee with 34 receptions and only has four fewer targets than Brown. Both wideouts have played in seven games but Brown has 42 more receiving yards and three more touchdowns than Davis. Jonnu Smith suffered an ankle injury on Sunday that could make Davis even more of a focal point moving forward. Davis is available in 51% of ESPN fantasy football leagues and 47.3% Yahoo! leagues.
