Fantasy Impact:

Davis was one of the top free agent running backs available and ends up signing a two-year deal with Atlanta. He set career-highs in carries (165), receptions (59), yards from scrimmage (1,015) and touchdowns (eight) across 15 games for the Panthers in 2020. Former Atlanta RBs Todd Gurley and Brian Hill are unrestricted free agents, Davis has the chance to lead the Falcons backfield. “New Falcons HC has a history of production in the run game, and perhaps Mike Davis will benefit from this,” per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Barring any more additions to the Falcons backfield, Davis is a high-upside RB2 in fantasy for 2021.
