Jets Sign Corey Davis: 2021 Betting & Fantasy Football Outlook

Jets Sign Corey Davis: The New York Jets signed free agent wide receiver Corey Davis to a three-year, $37.5 million deal with $27 million in guaranteed money.

The Jets added another big wide receiver in Davis to pair with talented sophomore Denzel Mims, providing either Sam Darnold or their first-round rookie quarterback — or Deshaun Watson?! — with an improved wide receiver core.

Davis is a former Top-5 pick who showed significant growth last season, posting 65 receptions, 984 yards, and five touchdowns on 92 targets in 14 games, setting career-highs across the board. At 6-3, 209-lbs, Davis is a big-bodied possession receiver who can make the tough catches over the middle.


Jets 2021 NFL Betting Outlook

The Jets are currently listed at +1600 to win the AFC East and +10000 to win the Super Bowl on BetMGM, but I wouldn’t recommend either of these bets. Instead, I would suggest keeping an eye out for the team’s season win total. Adding Davis definitely makes the Jets a better offense.

I would expect the Jets’ win total to end up anywhere between 5.5 to 6.5 games.

The Jets have a chance to make a splash with the number-two overall pick and select a new franchise quarterback, or they can continue riding with Darnold and bolster their offensive line. Either way, I expect this to be an improved team, especially with the addition by subtraction of firing Adam Gase. Keep an eye out for this bet.

Corey Davis 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Davis finished as WR32 in PPR points per game this past season. His volume was limited as the second option behind A.J. Brown in a run-heavy offense, but this won’t be the case with the Jets. Davis should lead this team in targets because he’s a much more reliable option than Mims at this stage. New offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur is the brother of Matt LaFleur, who coached Davis in Tennessee, so he should fit nicely into this scheme.

The Jets will likely be forced into catch-up mode on several occasions this upcoming season, so opportunities for garbage time production will be there for Davis. This projects as an offense with a narrowly distributed target share, as there aren’t a lot of options besides Davis and Mims, so the targets will likely be funneled toward these two big receivers.

Davis looks like an upside WR3 who has a great chance to surpass last season’s career highs. He’s not as flashy as other wide receivers due to his skill set as a possession receiver, so you might be able to acquire him for a decent price in Dynasty leagues. I’d suggest offering an intriguing young player like Jalen Reagor. Davis is now in the boring veteran category, making him a value in fantasy drafts.
