Personally I'm not touching Drew or Harry but I wouldn't be surprised if he is a better pick up than Harry Douglas. Could be a sleeper.

His measurables......


Drew Davis - #10 - WR
Height: 6-11/2
Weight: 211
Speed: 4.56
Arm: 33 1/8
Hand: 9 1/8   
Birthdate: 01/04/1989
Hometown: Denver, CO
Grade: 4.80

A little background....


Drew Davis is a neat story, no matter who you are. He's an undrafted free agent out of Oregon who clawed his way up from UDFA to practice squad player to bonafide NFL wide receiver. Davis even scored a pretty thrilling touchdown for the Falcons in 2012.
That's why it's heartening to hear that Davis has the inside track to the fourth receiver gig. Talent matters on this roster, and Davis is sure-handed enough and fast enough to make an impact on those limited snaps where he'll be called upon to do so. If he can continue to develop special teams value—and he probably is, since the Falcons seem to be leaning toward installing him as the fourth receiver—then he has a chance to be quite valuable.
The Falcons don't necessarily need massive upside attached to inconsistency at fourth receiver, which is unfortunately what Kevin Cone has offered up to this point. If Davis can reel in ten passes, keep defenses honest and help out on kicks and punts, this will be great.

Davis is in line for an increased role in the Falcons' offense moving forward, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Spin: Davis was considered the Falcons' fourth receiver through the first few weeks of the season, but with Julio Jones (foot) out for the year Davis is now effectively third in line behind Roddy White and Harry Douglas. White is dealing with a sore hamstring that could prevent him from playing this week, and if he does not suit up, it's likely that Davis would start opposite Douglas. Davis averaged just over 15 snaps per game in the four games leading up the Falcons' Week 6 bye, but that number, which likely would have risen this week anyway, could jump dramatically if White is unable to go.

Is this guy going to blow up with Roddy White out this week ? I like to be ahead of the curve, not behind, like 95% of all fantasy players.
For example, I picked up Keenan Allen, once Malcom Floyd went down and he wasn't on anyones radar. 2- 3 weeks latter, he is a 100 % a must own, high upside wr3.. let's talk about this dude Drew Davis, same situation(almost). # 2 receiver goes down(Roddy White), but not for the year,  in steps in Davis, in a great offense with a very good QB, with no hype whatsoever. Is this the next Keenan Allen. Let's get as much info as possible about this dude before the game starts on Sunday. If he goes 6/90 and 1 TD, he is the # 1 waiver add. It is all about getting ahead of the curve.. that is how you win leagues....

Probably worth a flier, because it wouldn't surprise me if he somehow outproduces HD. Douglas hasn't proven anything whatsoever even when he has had the opportunity to start.

In a relatively deep dynasty I am considering Davis or Cone to stash and wait. Who is the better option?

Apparently Cone is the WR3 as listed by rotoworld and also the Falcons' depth chart. He has more size and speed and caught a (iirc) 3rd down 12 yard catch in week 5.

Have the Falcons indicated who is starting opposite Harry Douglas? I think now that Roddy lost his consecutive games played streak, he is going to take as much time as possible to get healthy. It wouldn't surprise me to see him miss 3- 4 weeks..Cone or Davis good have value until Bye weeks are over. Any Atlanta homers now anything about who is getting the starting nod ?

FWIW i picked him up in a 16 team league where Kevin Cone was rostered. Any smaller leagues, dont bother really.

I got a feeling he is going to have a solid game. Wish I had the space to take a flier

Picked him up in my 14 team league and starting him over Tavon and Dobson at my WR2 spot.

It's a shot in the dark, but they don't have any proven players healthy, and even if Douglas gets moved around as their move WR, he's 6'0", nothing extraordinarily special physically, and has not performed at an Elite level yet in the NFL.

This Davis guy scored a TD last regular season from Matt Ryan, so it's not like the QB doesn't know who he is.

Added him this week after I traded SJax and dropped Snelling for him in a 16-team league. He saw a high snap count last week and with Roddy still 50/50, I feel like he'll get more looks with everyone paying attention to Douglas.

Well the guy had his break-out campaign week 8, 5/77/1, any Falcons-homers know anything about this guy? woth an add if I can't get my kenny stills back?? Obviously Ryan likes to air the ball out, so there is much more to go around than Roddy white and Douglas, and by the sounds of it, Douglas hasn't impressed much.

Why would he be more valuable once Douglas comes back?

Davis is playing the Julio role, so I guess you could make the case when Roddy comes back that would effect Douglas more than Davis.  I think if Roddy comes back healthy he will suck up enough targets to make both of them unappealing.

Owned in about 4% of CBS leagues. We are definitely in the minority but the opportunity is there. I'm surprised more owners haven't at least added

Curious if he would be considered the WR1 on the Falcons, given that Douglas lines up mostly in the slot (I think?). Just looking up team defenses against opposing WR positions for this week and there is a noticeable difference in CAR's ability to defend against WR1s (12th in league) and WR2s (2nd in league). Again, neither is particularly promising, but if WR1 implies split end and WR2 implies slot receiver, perhaps there is some reason for optimism about Davis' performance this week.

Can anyone shed some light on this?
