An impressive 4-catch, 88-yard and 1 -TD performance led proposed breakout candidate Gabriel Davis to a WR14 fantasy performance in Week 1. Unfortunately, his late addition to Buffalo's weekly injury report is creating a delicate situation for Davis fantasy managers ahead of Monday Night Football.

Gabriel Davis Injury Update

Davis unexpectedly popped up on the Bills practice report Saturday, logging just limited participation due to an undisclosed injury. Buffalo listed the young wideout as questionable for Monday's clash with the Tennessee Titans.

Between the lack of concrete information and a Monday Night kickoff, this is a complex situation for fantasy managers to navigate. Davis was listed as WR18 in The Duel's Week 2 PPR rankings prior to this injury report and otherwise would have been a sound option for starting lineups.

Gabriel Davis Fantasy Outlook Week 2

There's nothing much for fantasy managers to do besides wait for more clear information closer to kickoff. Utilize the pregame updates to determine exactly what type of injury Davis is dealing with.

For a hypothetical example, even if he suits up with some sort of lower-body injury, it may be best to consider other options. We just don't know how much that type of injury could limit his participation in Week 2.

As fantasy insider Kyle Yates points out, there is a glimmer of hope because of Monday's double dose of MNF action. Managers do have the ability to pivot to another WR or FLEX player in the Vikings vs Eagles matchup, which kicks off more than an hour after the Bills.

The second MNF game features limited options in terms of possibly available players, however. Vikings players Alexander Mattison and Irv Smith Jr. are both rostered in less than 40% of ESPN fantasy leagues. The same also applies to Eagles RB Kenneth Gainwell.

While none of them are poised for top-12 performances at their respective positions, putting up a handful of points is better than zero should Davis not suit up at all.
