|There is a ton to like about Davis as we head into the 2021 season. After all, it is an impressive feat to catch seven receiving touchdowns as a rookie, especially on an offense where he was the third or fourth option. If you just look at his stats, he would be someone many people were targeting as a young player poised to leap into top-24 status.
But we do not just draft by stats from the previous season, and Davis could be fools gold for anyone looking for a sleeper this season. First, Stefon Diggs posting just eight receiving touchdowns on 166 receptions is somewhat anomalous; leading us to believe that he should be closer to 11 based on that amount of volume.
Second, the team brought in veteran Emmanuel Sanders to fill the void left by John Brown. Sanders is not the player he once was, but he should eat into the overall target pie, and Davis is the likely one to have his pie share go down.
Lastly, Allen posted ridiculous increases in both efficiency and volume, with regression to the mean likely in his future. This does not mean that Allen will not be a top fantasy QB, but 37 passing touchdowns is hard to repeat.
For these reasons, we recommend not drinking the Kool-Aid on Davis and waiting to see if there are any changes to the WR corps before adding him off waivers after he is dropped.
| COVID forces unvaccinated Bills WRs out of practice|
Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis will miss a week for contract tracing

"Buffalo #Bills news: Per a source, Cole Beasley & Gabriel Davis passed this morning’s COVID test (came back negative) but have been removed from facility & must undergo 5-day reentry process as close contacts to a member of team’s training staff who tested positive for #COVID19" (Twitter/NYDN)|
FFToday's Take: Beasley and Davis are among the league's most outspoken COVID-19 vaccine opponents, and they'll pay the price this week because a member of the training staff tested positive. Cam Newton is facing a similar situation in New England and fantasy owners will have to weigh how much they want to depend on unvaccinated players because of the uncertainty they face headed into the regular season with the strict protocols. Beasley is a COVID skeptic who threatened to retire this offseason, and his stock in fantasy drafts is dipping, along with Davis -- a second year WR who's shown promise.
