Knile Davis dropping passes in camp, may not see field for fantasy owners

Jamie Squire

Knile Davis has been dropping more than his fair share of passes in practice. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Knile Davis has impressed with his ball-carrying skills, but has struggled with dropped passes in practice, according to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. Davis was a "notorious fumbler" in college at Arkansas, but hasn't dropped a single one during training camp.

But the issue is with his receiving. He's dropped "numerous" passes, which have erased big gains and highlight-reel plays. As noted, if Davis can't overcome his issues in the passing game, he'll struggle to find playing time behind Jamaal Charles, given that Andy Reid, the new head coach, likes a running back that can catch the ball.

Fantasy Impact: Davis is big and fast, and has gained a decent amount of attention as someone who could see significant carries as the potential starter of the future. But if he doesn't show he can catch, he'll sit on the sidelines, as Reid prefers to have that threat and that option for quarterback Alex Smith. Davis isn't high on any fantasy owners' draft board and this news should erase him from boards entirely.
