Week 8 Outlook
Thomas Davis Sr. will not play in Sunday's matchup against the Eagles.
Davis is dealing with a calf injury and the newly signed 37-year-old will hope to get the start at linebacker next week. On a team with no real standout linebackers, he could end up leading the team in tackles by year's end.
LB Thomas Davis Sr. officially signs a one-year, $3.5M deal with the Redskins. The deal includes a $1.75M signing bonus with a potential maximum for $3.75M.
Davis Sr. is reunited with his old coach Ron Rivera in Washington for what will be his 16th NFL season.
LB Thomas Davis Sr. won’t retire, and instead, is signing with the Washington Redskins, per his Instagram account.
Davis Sr. gets to reunite with his former coach, Ron Rivera. At 36 years old, Davis isn’t quite the same player he once was, but he’ll add a veteran presence to a young locker room that desperately needs a leader.
Thomas Davis racked up six solo tackles and six individual tackles, bringing his league-leading tackle total to 26.
Davis is putting up numbers in this defense, playing with the same passion that he brought to the Carolina Panthers for over a decade. If he hasn't grabbed your attention already, keep an eye on him if he can sustain this pace.
Thomas Davis posted 14 total tackles, with seven coming as an individual effort, against the Indianapolis Colts this past Sunday. He is tied for the league lead after one week.
Davis impressed in his new threads, as he spent the first 14 seasons of his career with the Carolina Panthers. The 36-year-old has some low ownership ratings across different fantasy platforms, so if he is available in your league, he is worth a flyer after his big week one performance.
