Dan Harris

Davis found the end zone last weekend against the Chargers, but caught just two passes, and now has just seven receptions over his previous four games. With injuries to the offensive line, he's been needed to block more, and just has not been able to become a consistent option in the passing game. Arizona is mediocre against opposing tight ends, so Davis is still an option in deep leagues, but it would be hard to trust him at this point in the season. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It was good to see Davis get back into the end zone last week, as he'd been a major letdown the previous two weeks. Not that he's totally in the clear, because he's still failed to record more than three catches since Week 10. The Cardinals have been a defense you can play tight ends against if you know they're going to get targets. On the year, there have been just five tight ends who've seen more than five targets against them, and they averaged 6.2 receptions, 57.0 yards, and 0.8 touchdowns. Davis is on the TE1 radar, as there aren't many safe plays at the position anymore, so at least we know what he's capable when he gets the targets.
