Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis led his team in receiving on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis led the team in receiving in Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Davis finished the day with 7 catches for 90 yards, but did not score.

Fantasy Analysis: With Pierre Garcon out, Robert Griffin III has been spreading the football around quite a bit more. Like with Garcon, he's locked onto a receiver and just worked teams. If Davis is going to be the go-to-guy in Garcon's absence, despite being a tight end, his fantasy value could be on a serious ascension. Davis is owned in most leagues, but is not always a starter. For fantasy owners playing the match-ups, be sure to keep your eye on Davis.
