Corey Davis Retires
10 months ago

New York Jets’ Wide Receiver Corey Davis has retired for personal reasons after six years in the NFL.

28-year-old veteran wideout Corey Davis suddenly announced his retirement from the NFL via social media earlier today. The post came after Davis had recently missed the NY Jets’ 2nd preseason game. The former top-5 pick  averaged 76.8 Targets,  45.5 Receptions, and 646.5 Receiving Yards for the Titans and Jets over a productive career.

The addition of future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers to New York made Corey Davis a popular last-round best-ball pick. That said, it’s pretty obvious those player shares will not be profitable in 2023. In the twelve games he played last year for the Jets, Davis earned 63 targets on 71% route participation. That was good for a 16.4% target per route rate and a 12.9% team target share.  Allen Lazard will get pushed up at least a full round from his current 125 Underdog ADP. Fantasy managers should assume Lazard will now dominate snap shares in two WR sets for NYJ, making his 100 targets from last year more repeatable with Davis out of the picture.
