|Entering 2011, expectations were low for the talented Davis – the Redskins 2008 2nd round pick. Despite playing well for an injured Chris Cooley at the conclusion of the 2009 season, Davis was a forgotten man in the Redskins offense in 2010 and with Cooley still in the picture, not much was expected to change in 2011. However, with Cooley suffering through knee and hand injuries, Davis started all 12 of the games he played before a four-game suspension for drug-related issues ended his season. He emerged as the team’s top receiving threat, reaching career-highs in receptions (59) and yards (796) while also catching three touchdown passes. His 8.1 FPts per game average ranked 5th at tight end and he should finish near that ranking in 2012 provided he plays 16 games. Of course, his next suspension will result in a 16-game absence so he brings enormous risk.

FF Today's Take: It's been a bad week for Davis who is set to become a free agent next month. Davis was suspended 4 games in 2011 after failing a drug test. He'll need to get his life straightened out before even thinking about making an impact on the field.

FF Today's Take: Davis was suspended four games in 2011 meaning this is his third strike in the substance abuse program. He's a free agent heading into 2014 but he'll be lucky to get a contract given the off-field concerns. He's off the fantasy radar until further notice.
