Good news for Dominick Davis owners

Postby dalej » Thu Oct 16, 2003 1:31 pm

From Fanball.com

Rookie running back Domanick Davis took most of the snaps with the Texans’ first-team offense Wednesday and appears to be in line for his first NFL start this Sunday against the New York Jets. “Domanick has earned playing time,” said Houston coach Dom Capers. “So you will be seeing more of Dominick.” Turf toes on both feet have slowed Stacey Mack, who has started all five of the previous games and leads the Texans with 211 rushing yards. But Davis, to this point used as a third-down back and as the single back in three-receiver packages, has been more effective. Davis has 34 touches and 220 yards from scrimmage over the past two games, while Mack has amassed just 58 yards in 21 touches.


OUR VIEW

The Texans run a good portion of their offense out of the three-receiver set, so Davis has been on the field plenty already this season. And Capers has not officially announced Davis as the starter for this week’s game, though it certainly seems to be merely a formality at this point. The Jets are giving up almost 150 yards per game on the ground, so Davis has a good chance at some very nice numbers in his first start. He’s a great bye-week plug-in play for this week, and it’s entirely possible he keeps the job the rest of the season. ;-D
Baseball players are smarter than football players. How often do you see a baseball team penalized for too many men on the field?

I know, I didn't have a chance to pick him up before another guy did. Being second place stinks.

I don't think it is that bad. I think he will still share some of the carries this week. But in a couple weeks he should be getting next to all of them.

I'm "that guy" that picked him up a week and a half ago on a gut feeling... I hope this makes up for me dropping Michael Bennett last year after week 4...

im with the dude on this one. i grabbed him before last week figuring beating out a gimpy mack couldnt be that hard since he already had one solid game under his belt. so i guess my hunch was right ;-D

I think Domanick Davis and Deshaun Foster have the same value right now.

Domanick, if he takes over is still on a poor team. On the other hand if Foster even if he gets 10 carries would gain a lot of yards.
