Week 9 – Davis caught a TD in week 8, but that was his only reception of the game as he went for just 12 yards receiving. There is no reason to consider Davis a fantasy TE on this point in the season.
Week 6 - Davis continues to have 0 fantasy value, as he caught just 2 passes for 26 yards in week 5. Continue to ignore Kellen in all formats.
Week 1 – We are expecting the Bears to have a more pass heavy approach in 2012, and Davis should see more targets. With that said, Kellen is sitting on waivers in the majority of formats, and until Cutler proves that he likes to target his TE on a more consistent basis, Davis should be sat in the majority of formats.
Apparently either Jay Cutler, Caleb Hanie, or Lovie Smith has something against Kellen Davis as he was only targeted 18 times in 2011, even though he appeared in all 16 games for the Bears. In 2012 that could all change, as rumors out of Bears camp are that Davis will be featured much more in the offense this season. Kellen stands 6 ft 7 in, so he certainly has the size to make an impact, and he also gave an interview where he stated he wanted to catch between 40 and 60 passes. We are projecting just over 40 receptions for Davis this season, but he should be one of Cutler’s favorite targets in the red zone thanks to his stature, and could be a sneaky good pickup as a TE2 in deep formats.
