I don't think he's worth very much, it's either going to be an RBBC between he and Foster or he'll get hurt again. Either way, Carolina's offensive line isn't very good so I wouldn't be starting him unless I was really really desperate.

I'm still debating on what to do with him. I don't want to sell him too low and get no return on my 2nd pick (seems ludicrous now that I spent a #2 on him). I considered trading him to the guy w/ Foster who will have either possible starter for Kevin Jones, until he got injured and wasn't shown to be producing. Part of me wants to see how my recently acquired Pittman will do and whether or not Davis will retain his starting job. All indications are that he will.

For now, I'm standing pat and waiting to see what happens. Acting too soon could result in an undervalued trade for me and likely not a fair one due to the perception he may not start.

In your case, offer a solid #2 WR for him or maybe offer him to the guy who has Pittman (if it isn't you) where there may be risk on both ends. See if there is a need you could get filled and test the waters. Until his return time is clearer, it may be the best you can do.

I won't touch Davis. He's a 30+ injured back with Foster (who is talented) all over his gig. Davis on a downturn might look attractive like Merck, but unlike the stock market, old hurt RBs seldom go back up... buyers beware

I doubt Davis can hold Foster back for the whole season, especially if he continues to tear it up. Rudi Johnson, anyone?

stephen davis injury & value

Postby Eric Gagne » Sat Oct 02, 2004 9:02 pm

I had stephen and depending on your situation i believe you need to see where you stand for the future. I had duece and he got injured, I have rudi johnson and he is not producing, my wide outs consist or gardner and jimmy smith, so i was in trouble. in need of running back depth, i traded stephen davis for tyrone wheatley and mike pittman. i love pittman because we get points for receptions and he had 74 of them last year, only 2 rb's were better...tomlinson and holmes.

i received mixed reviews from my 12 team league, some said i gave up on him too early, others who think davis is garbage and foster is the future, think i made a good not great deal. running backs are important, people are starting bettis, leonard henry, and emmitt stecker and george in my league, so running backs are important, so to get two players who can contribute was important...i hope this helps.

You hit the nail on the head. Davis isn't that young, and going back to his days in WASH, he's taken a beating (he's a between the tackles runner). I know he's anxious to get back, but that doesn't mean he's ready or going to be effective.

I wouldn't make the investment in in Davis.

I had a bad feeling about Davis all offseason, and stayed away from him all drafts. In my main money league, took DeShaun Foster in round 7, and it's paid dividends so far. Someone dropped Davis in that league, so I picked him up (all I lost was David Terrell, so I think it's a worthy investment).
