Chiefs' DeAnthony Thomas, Knile Davis get limited reps


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Chiefs running backs DeAnthony Thomas and Knile Davis received limited reps against the Raiders.

Thomas had just one carry, gaining 9 yards. He caught two passes, picking up 15 yards in the receiving game. Davis had two carries, but came up with just 2 yards. He did not receive a target in the passing game. 

Both players will look for more Week 13 against the Broncos. 


Chiefs backup rushers do little Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Chiefs backup rushers did little Week 11.

De'Anthony Thomas carried the ball three times, gaining 22 yards. He also caught one pass for 10 yards. Knile Davis received five carries, but only gained 10 yards. He did, however, manage to plunge in a 4 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Davis also caught one pass, gaining 8 yards. 

They'll take on the Raiders Week 12. 


Chiefs get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) The Chiefs got several contributions from role players in their Week 10 win at Buffalo. Among them, wideout A.J. Jenkins caught a 27-yard pass, tight end Anthony Fasano had a 7-yard reception and wideout Junior Hemingway had a 6-yard grab.

Running back Knile Davis ran four times for 1 yard and caught a 5-yard pass, but lost a fumble. They'll all play the Seahawks in Week 11.


Knile Davis shows he's still a great handcuff


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2014) Chiefs backup running back Knile Davis didn't play much of the first three quarters Week 8 against St. Louis, but after starter Jamaal Charles left early in the fourth quarter with his team up big, Davis reminded everyone he's a serviceable fill-in should the need for one arise. He ran 16 times for 49 yards and scored a touchdown on a 3-yard run midway through the fourth quarter.

Though he didn't have many yards per carry, 13 of his carries came with Charles out of the game in an obvious run-out-the-clock scenario. He showed his big-play ability with a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown earlier in the contest.

Again, Davis normally won't get so much playing time unless Charles goes down with another injury, but between this performance and what he did in Weeks 2-4, he deserves to be owned in all Fantasy leagues just for that possibility.


Chiefs' Knile Davis has rushing TD, kickoff return TD in Week 8 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Chiefs running back Knile Davis scored two touchdowns in the second half during Sunday's 34-7 win against the Rams.

Davis opened the second half with a 99-yard kickoff return, which put Kansas City ahead 17-7. He added a 3-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter, which was Kansas City's final score.

Davis totaled 49 rushing yards on 16 carries. He has four rushing touchdowns in seven games, which ties a career high.

The Chies are back in action Week 9 vs. N.Y. Jets.


Knile Davis receives 10 carries in Chiefs' Week 7 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Chiefs running back Knile Davis rushed 10 times for just 25 yards while adding an 11-yard reception in his team's 23-20 win over the Chargers in Week 7.

Davis benefited from the team's ball-control efforts, as the offense logged 39 rush attempts and only 28 pass attempts in the win. His workload figures to be tied to the health of Jamaal Charles moving forward. The Chiefs face the Rams in Week 8.


Knile Davis returns to reserve role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Whatever hope there was that Knile Davis might remain relevant with Jamaal Charles back from injury might have disappeared in Week 5, as he touched the ball just twice in a loss to the Patriots.

The Chiefs were able to lean on both running backs last week while nursing a big lead, but the situation changed Sunday. With the game closer, it was Charles who the Chiefs leaned on, though he ended up with just 15 touches in the game. That was much more than Davis had, as he had just two carries for 6 yards.

With Charles healthy, Davis is a luxury for the Chiefs on offense. He is nice to have around, but  if push comes to shove, he'll take a backseat to Charles. You obviously need to keep Davis on the roster as a handcuff, but there is little reason to think of him as starting material. 


Knile Davis an afterthought Week 5


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) After rushing for 239 yards and a touchdown the previous two weeks, Chiefs backup running back Knile Davis was not a factor in the Week 5 loss at San Francisco. Davis carried twice for 6 yards and was targeted once without a catch.

Davis is on a bye Week 6.


Jamaal Charles' return a last hurrah for Knile Davis?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/30/2014) The good news is Knile Davis delivered his second straight 100-yard game even with star running back Jamaal Charles back on the field Week 4 against New England. The bad news is Charles looked so good himself that Davis may not have a shot at another.

Only two weeks removed from a high ankle sprain that seemed certain to sideline him for weeks to come, Charles scored three touchdowns -- one on the ground and two through the air -- and was consistent with his 18 carries, the longest going for 17 yards. He acknowledged some soreness afterward but gave no reason to believe he won't be back out there Week 5 at San Francisco.

In fact, if not for a big lead in the second half, he might have been out there longer in Week 4. Of Davis' 16 carries, 11 came in the second half. He played 43 percent of the Chiefs' snaps to Charles' 54 percent.

If Week 5 ends up being a closer game -- and it most likely will be -- the Chiefs may not ask Davis to spell Charles as much. While you're no doubt pleased with your decision to stick with the backup despite Charles' return, you may have simply lucked out. Davis remains as good as a of a handcuff option as you'll find in Fantasy, but you should plan to bench him for the foreseeable future.


Andy Reid wants to keep Knile Davis involved


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Despite Jamaal Charles' return from an ankle injury, Chiefs coach Andy Reid indicated running back Knile Davis will continue to get substantial work. Davis has run for 239 yards the past two weeks.

"They're both explosive players," Reid told ESPN.com. "They're completely different players, but they're both explosive players. That makes my job easy. Just give them the ball."


Knile Davis goes over 100 yards for second straight week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Chiefs running back Knile Davis shared backfield duties with star Jamaal Charles on Monday night, but it didn't stop the second-year pro from going over 100 yards rushing for the second straight week. Davis ran 16 times for 107 yards (6.7 ypc) and caught one of two targets for 12 yards.

Davis got going early, ripping off a 48-yard run in the first quarter. He played 30 snaps to Charles' 34. Davis is up to 321 rushing yards through four games entering Sunday's visit to San Francisco.


Chiefs running back situation a dilemma again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/25/2014) If you benched Knile Davis last week because you weren't sure you'd be able to find a suitable replacement from one of the three 4 p.m. games if Jamaal Charles made a miraculous return, you were probably pretty upset when Davis not only started, but piled up 132 yards and a touchdown. I was right there with you. My substitute, Stevan Ridley, had only 61 and no touchdown. Good thing we got the weird schedule stuff out of the way so we don't have to go through that aga--

What's that? The Chiefs are playing the Monday night game? Is this some kind of sick joke? You won the waiver claim for Knile Davis, the most significant of the year so far, but because the Chiefs refuse to accept that Charles is going to need some time to recover from a high ankle sprain, you can't be completely sure he's going to sit until the Chiefs reveal their inactives. And they don't do that until 90 minutes before game time. So when their game time is later than everyone else's, it doesn't really help, does it?

Annoying, to say the least. I, for one, don't want to be hoodwinked again, but the thing about being hoodwinked is you don't know you're being hoodwinked until you've been hoodwinked. If you own both Charles and Davis, it's easy. You just wait for the inactives and then make the call between the two. But if you own just Davis ... oh, to heck with it. I'm starting him. Even if Charles is active, it's not like he's going to play every down with that bum ankle. And if a shared role yields only 50 yards for Davis, well, that's not any worse than what Ridley did for me last week, is it?


Knile Davis has a career day as a starter in Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chiefs running back Knile Davis got the start and enjoyed a career day, registering his first 100-yard rushing game in Week 3 against Miami.

Davis gashed Miami's defense for a 21-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. He took 32 handoffs for 132 yards and a touchdown on the ground, averaging 4.1 yards per carry -- all a career high for the 22-year-old. He finished without a reception despite being targeted once in a 34-15 victory.

Davis could shoulder the load again in Week 4 at home against New England, depending on the status of Jamaal Charles. Charles was a limited participant in practice and nearly played in Week 3.


Jamaal Charles ruled inactive for Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles warmed up and was shadowed by a trainer prior to Sunday's game against the Miami. Ultimately, the team decided to take a cautious approach, ruling him inactive for Week 3. Knile Davis will likely get the start in place of Charles.

Charles was limited Thursday and Friday in practice with an ankle injury that knocked him out of the Week 2 game. He' been limited to just 23 yards rushing in nine attempts this season.

Chiefs sideline reporter doesn't expect Jamaal Charles to play


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/20/2014) Chiefs sideline reporter Kendall Gammon told CBS Sports Radio's Eye on Fantasy Football on Saturday night that he does not expect Jamaal Charles to play at Miami on Sunday. Gammon said Charles practiced a little bit on Thursday and Friday and was moving around okay but still was showing the effects of a high-ankle sprain.

Knile Davis is likely to start and see a bunch of snaps in place of Charles at Miami.


Chiefs won't change game plan with Knile Davis starting


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said if running back Jamaal Charles (ankle) can't play Sunday at Miami, the game plan won't change significantly with Knile Davis as the starter. "I don't think it would change much from what you saw [Sunday]," Reid told the Kansas City Star.

"[Davis] was involved in a lot of different areas."

Davis ran for 79 yards and two touchdowns and caught six passes for 26 yards in the Week 2 loss at Denver.


Knile Davis scores in relief Week 2.


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Chiefs running back Knile Davis came up big Week 2 against the Broncos. 

Davis entered in relief of Jamaal Charles, who left with an ankle injury. Davis was the bellcow, carrying the ball 22 times for 79 yards. He also managed to punch in two short-yardage touchdowns from 2 yards and 4 yards out. Davis also led the club with six receptions. He gained 26 yards through the air. Davis also fumbled once, but the team managed to come up with the ball.

Davis will take on the Dolphins Week 3. 


Knile Davis 'doing a great job'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Chiefs running back Knile Davis is making a good impression on his coaches this offseason.

Running back coach Eric Bieniemy likes what he sees so far from Jamaal Charles' backup.

"First and foremost, Knile has taken a tremendous jump mentally," Bieniemy said. "The beauty of it is last year was his first time going through it. Now he's been through it. Now we're just rehearsing everything, and we're going over the things we made mistakes on. He has a better awareness of what's going on with the game. Obviously he comes out here every day and he works his tail off. The beauty of it is he's learning how to become a professional. He's gaining a better understanding of awareness, of what it takes to be a professional, what it takes to see a blitz coming, how to apply the proper technique when pressure is coming. So he's doing a great job so far."

Knile Davis exits following two scores


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2014) Chiefs running back Knile Davis was forced to leave Saturday's Wild Card playoff game against the Colts, the second Chiefs' back forced out due to injury.

Filling in for Jamaal Charles, who suffered a concussion on the first drive of the game, Davis led the team in rushing yards before suffering the injury in the fourth quarter. He was unable to return.

Davis had 18 carries for 67 yards in the game, scoring on a 4-yard run just before haltime. He added a second score minutes after halftime on a 10-yard reception, while finishing the game with seven receptions for 33 yards. 

The extent of the injury is not yet known, but Davis' season ended with the 45-44 loss to the Colts. 


Knile Davis shows up with a pair of touchdowns


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Chiefs running back Knile Davis, starting in place of Jamaal Charles, ran 27 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 17 loss at San Diego. He caught two of four targets for 5 yards.

Davis struck twice in the first half, zipping into the end zone from 17 yards out in the first quarter and punching in a 2-yard score in the second. Up to four rushing scores this season, Davis will back up Charles in Saturday's wild card game at Indianapolis.


Knile Davis to benefit from volume


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) Chiefs rookie running back Knile Davis spent 2013 on multitudes of Fantasy rosters as a mandatory handcuff to superstar Jamaal Charles. In Week 17, Davis is worth a start.

Coach Andy Reid isn't going to put Charles at risk, not with the Chiefs locked in as the No. 5 seed. Thus Davis could see 15-20 touches. Davis is averaging just 3.7 yards per carry on 43 totes. But he's scored three touchdowns, one on a kickoff return, and has caught nine passes for 70 yards.

Reid told the Kansas City Star this month that coaches are confident in Davis. "I just think it's a matter of reps under his belt and production," Reid said. "It's getting used to the NFL, protections in particular. I think everybody's got quite a bit of trust in him to go out there and do a good job."

Play Davis as a low-end RB2 or high-end flex Sunday. CBSSports.com senior Fantasy experts Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank Davis 24th and 28th respectively among running backs.
