Fred Davis injury update: Tight end should be fine for matchup with Cowboys

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Fred Davis' ankle is basically a non-issue for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Redskins tight end Fred Davis is probable to face the Cowboys on Sunday. He didn't miss any practice and is good to go. Jordan Reed (thigh) is also probable and will play.

Davis has been a ghost for much of the season and has just three catches for 25 yards. Davis has been targeted just seven times all year, and hasn't found the end zone. The Skins haven't had much success in moving the ball through the air and Reed has been a much better asset. The Florida product has caught 13 balls on 15 targets with a score this year.

Obviously, Reed hasn't been very good either. Even though the Cowboys have given up a lot of yards to tight ends since Bruce Carter can't cover anyone, it's still going to be tough for either tight end to account for much production.

Fantasy impact: These are not the droids you're looking for. They're basically going to cancel each other out. If you're really in a pinch, Reed is a better play since he can stretch the field. Hopefully, Robert Griffin III can get his season turned around.
