Andre Davis to me seems to be the benefactor when someone is injured, otherwise I see him doing kick returns and getting into the occasional 4 wide sets for some yardage but not worth a roster spot IMO.
For this exact reason I think Andre Davis has good value in leagues that award some, but not necessarily equal points for return yards. If Johnson goes down, or one of the other two go down, count on Davis having some big games between return yards and receiving yards. He has the chance to catch a bomb TD with his speed, and I think he had great production when johnson went down last year
When johnson was out between weeks 3-8, Davis has 2 TDs and 4 70+ yard games. Once he took over as full time KR in week 7 he never dips below 67 return yards, and has 6 100+ return yard games including 3 TDs. Granted, 1 of those games was a huge one in week 17, but it still bodes well for this year. In leagues that give a point per 20/25/30 yards, I think Davis could be a solid WR3. He will get you consistently 5-7 points, plus he has a shot for some nice 18-19 point games, probably 2 of those. If he rips a return TD and catches one also, I think he can post 25+ once this year. 4/97/1 plus 7/180/1 return yards seems possible which is 27.7 in a 30 yards per return point non PPR league.
This type of league is not uncommon and I think he is draftable as a late round wideout who actually is somewhat of a steal/safe pick because of his return ability which will make him consistent.
