Drew Davis - #10 - WR
Arm: 33 1/8
Hand: 9 1/8
Hometown: Denver, CO
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.

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.

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....

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.

Expected to start opposite Douglas. Anyone picking this guy up in?
FWIW i picked him up in a 16 team league where Kevin Cone was rostered. Any smaller leagues, dont bother really.

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.

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
Picked him up for this week

Can anyone shed some light on this?
