  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Limited involvement against Packers

    Davis caught his lone target for minus-3 yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Packers.

    Davis operated as the Chargers' No. 4 wide receiver, playing just seven of the 65 offensive snaps Sunday. The rookie's utilization leaves much to be desired, yet he has proven to have the ability to make plays with his impressive speed. Nonetheless, Davis shouldn't be trusted for fantasy purposes when the Chargers host the Ravens in Week 12.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Plays 15 snaps in loss

    Davis caught both of his targets for seven yards in Sunday's 41-38 loss to the Lions.

    The rookie speedster played a career-high 15 offensive snaps in what became a shootout almost from the word go. One week after registering an 84-yard punt-return touchdown, Davis ripped off a nice 27-yard kickoff return and now has four games with at least a combined 30 return yards. The lack of playing time will make it difficult to roster the rookie even in deeper fantasy leagues, but he's clearly a playmaker for an offense that has been inconsistent at times this year.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: First career punt return TD

    Davis did not record a yard on his lone reception in Monday's 27-6 win over the Jets, but he did return a 87-yard punt return to open the scoring in the first quarter.

    Davis only played offensive snaps as the Jets' offense barely put up a fight. The rookie did kick off the scoring for the Chargers on the second punt of the game, returning it 87 yards for a massive special teams touchdown. It's clear the electric speedster can be a gamechanger when he has the ball, but to this point he's hardly been utilized by the offense.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Draws two targets in win

    Davis caught his two lone targets for four yards Sunday in the Chargers' 30-13 win over the Bears.

    One week after having multiple running plays schemed for him, Davis wasn't unlocked in a contest that became uncompetitive quickly. With just nine offensive snaps Sunday and only 11 the week prior, it's hard to suggest the 23-year-old has much fantasy value save for deeper leagues.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Gets multiple carries in loss

    Davis carried the ball three times for 14 yards and also caught one of his two targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Chiefs.

    The Chargers ran a number of plays specifically for Davis, somewhat ironic given the team has failed to get 2023 first-round pick, Quentin Johnston, more involved in the gameplan. Davis, a fourth-round pick from this past draft class, has plenty of speed, but it's hard to imagine his current role expanding tremendously unless injuries strike multiple players ahead of him.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Barely plays Monday

    Davis went without a target while playing two of the Chargers' 73 snaps on offense in Monday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.

    In the Chargers' previous game Week 4 versus the Raiders, Davis logged 12 snaps and recorded two catches for 16 yards, but he saw his already limited playing time take a hit coming out of the team's bye week. He finished fifth among Chargers receivers in snaps Monday, with practice-squad call-up Keelan Doss finishing ahead of him. Even with Mike Williams (knee) out for the season, Davis doesn't look as though he'll be much more than a depth option at receiver, though the fourth-round rookie out of TCU should maintain his role as the Chargers' top return man.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Not much increase in playing time

    Davis caught both of his targets for 16 yards in the 24-17 win over the Raiders on Sunday.

    Davis didn't see a significant snaps bump with Mike Williams (knee) out, as he played just 16 snaps compared to Quentin Johnston's 33. The speedy rookie will have a situational role as a field stretcher moving forward, but it's hard to imagine Davis operating as anything more unless another injury occurs atop the depth chart.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Plays only three offensive snaps

    Davis caught his lone reception for five yards in Sunday's 36-34 loss to the Dolphins.

    The speedy rookie played just three total offensive snaps, significantly fewer than projected No. 4 target Joshua Palmer (55 snaps). Davis will likely be an electric special-teams returner for the Chargers, but at least based off his performance Week 1, he won't have a significant impact offensively.

  • Chargers' Derius Davis: Thrills with return TD

    Davis brought in both targets for 21 yards, returned one kickoff for 17 yards and ran back two punts for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Chargers' 34-17 preseason win over the Rams on Saturday night.

    The blazing-fast rookie made his mark with an 81-yard punt return touchdown at just under the 10-minute mark of the second quarter to snap a 7-7 tie. Davis was also efficient on his pair of receptions, and the fact that both Joshua Palmer (undisclosed) and Jalen Guyton (PUP-knee) were sidelined in addition to Keenan Allen and Mike Williams being idle certainly helped up open opportunities for him on offense. Davis' next chance to make a case for a roster spot comes in a home preseason matchup against the Saints on Sunday night, Aug. 20.
