Knile Davis signs with Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have signed free agent running back Knile Davis to a one-year deal on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Davis, who spent portions of the 2016 season with Kansas City and Green Bay, signed with the Steelers Monday. The situational rusher and return specialist is coming off of his most underwhelming season of his four-year career last season totaling only 53 yards on 23 touches. He is not on the fantasy radar entering 2017.

Knile Davis INACTIVE against Steelers

Knile Davis is officially inactive for the Kansas City Chiefs for their Divisional Round matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Davis is a healthy scratch.

Fantasy Impact

Davis being inactive is a bit of a surprise, as he is the team's primary kick returner. With Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West will see most of the activity in the backfield, with some Tyreek Hill likely sprinkled in, and some combination of Hill and DeAnthony Thomas will return kicks.

Knile Davis returns to Chiefs, plays in Week 9

Knile Davis returned to the Chiefs last week after being traded to and cut by the Packers and signed and released by the Jets, and he immediately suited up for the Chiefs in Week 9. He played sparingly, though, and only totaled four touches for 17 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Knile Davis likely did not enjoy bouncing around the NFL for a few weeks, but he is back in Kansas City with his original team. Davis is slightly more valuable now that Jamaal Charles is on injured reserve, but he will only see any real work if Spencer Ware goes down for an extended period of time. Davis is not worth owning as of right now.

Knile Davis returns to Kansas City

Tha Kansas City Chiefs signed RB Knile Davis on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Davis is back in Kansas City where he started after a long week of traveling. He will likely be active on Sunday against Jacksonville with Jamaal Charles and Spencer Ware unavailable. Davis has little fantasy value upon his return to the Chiefs barring a long-term injury to West or Ware.

Knile Davis released by Jets

The New York Jets released RB Knile Davis on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The Jets claimed Davis in case they could not sign C.J. Spiller, who they offered a contract to earlier in the day. Spiller signed and Davis was let go. He could make his way back to Kansas City now that Jamaal Charles was placed on IR.
