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.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

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 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."


Andy Reid: Knile Davis is fine


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Monday that second-year running back Knile Davis did not need surgery following the broken fibula he suffered in the playoff loss to the Colts, reports the Kansas City Star.

Reid said Davis is "healed" and "doing everything" at offseason workouts. Davis had 70 carries for 242 yards and four touchdowns and 11 catches for 75 yards as the primary backup to Jamaal Charles last year.


Knile Davis healing quickly from broken leg


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Chiefs hope Knile Davis will be ready for offseason work


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/10/2014) The Chiefs hope second-year running back Knile Davis will be ready for offseason workouts after suffering a broken leg in the playoff loss to the Colts, reports ESPN.

The report says if Davis can't participate in any of the offseason work, that will set him back greatly because his is a game that needs development in many areas.


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.


Knile Davis' fumble leads to seven points for the wrong team


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Chiefs running back Knile Davis fumbled on his first and only carry Sunday against the Colts, a play that led to a score for the other team. 

We'll see if Davis can get his backup role back in Week 17 at the Chargers. 


Knile Davis scores in back-to-back games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Chiefs running back Knile Davis found the end zone in back-to-back games during Sunday's blowout win over the Raiders in Week 15.

With the game well in hand, Davis saw some extended playing time in the fourth quarter. He broke for a 17-yard run with 8:24 minutes remaining in the game. He finished the game with nine carries for 34 yards (3.8 yards per carry) and a touchdown in a 65-31 victory.

Davis has 64 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries over his last two games. He'll look to extend his scoring streak to three games in Week 16 against the Colts.

Knile Davis contributes in garbage time


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Chiefs running back Knile Davis, who had gotten no more than three carries in a game since Week 3, had by far his most productive game of the season Week 14 at Washington. Playing the entire fourth quarter with his team up big, Davis ran 11 times for 30 yards and caught one pass for 17. He even scored the first rushing touchdown of his career on a 17-yard scamper.

Of course, of his 11 carries, none came in the first half. By the time Davis scored his touchdown, starter Jamaal Charles was resigned to playing a spectator role, content with his 151 yards on 19 carries in a blowout win.

Davis will continue to serve as Charles' backup Week 15 at Oakland.


Knile Davis makes presence felt on special teams


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Chiefs backup running back Knile Davis didn't do much on the ground, but made a huge play on special teams Week 13.

Davis carried the ball one time for 20 yards. He also caught two passes for 18 yards. Davis was limited on offense, but had a big play on special teams. Davis returned a kick 108 yards for a score in the second quarter. He'll take on Washinton Week 14. 


Knile Davis gets one carry Week 12


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Chiefs running back Knile Davis received one carry Week 12 against the Chargers.

Davis ran for 3 yards on his only carry of the game. He was not a threat in the passing game, and did not receive a target. The team wasn't able to focus on the ground game much, with Jamaal Charles receiving just 14 carries. He didn't need any breathers, which prevented Davis from entering the game much. Davis will take on the Broncos Week 13.


Chiefs get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2013) Several Chiefs made offensive contributions in the Week 10 loss at Denver. No. 2 tight end Sean McGrath caught two passes for 40 yards and wideout Donnie Avery had a 20-yard reception on three targets.

No. 2 running back Knile Davis ran three times for 13 yards and caught an 11-yard pass. Fullback Anthony Sherman had a 1-yard carry and caught two passes for 18 yards, but lost a fumble.

They'll face the Chargers in Week 12.


Knile Davis a nice speculative play


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/31/2013) If you're a Jamaal Charles owner, Knile Davis is essentially a must-add handcuff, especially with Charles nursing a sore knee. 

But even if Charles is floating off on someone else's roster, it might be worth it to speculate on Davis, just on the chance that the Chiefs are downplaying Charles' injury and he doesn't play. The Chiefs' offense is tailored to the run (and to short passes to the running back), and Davis will slide into the Charles role if anything happens. 

Additionally, a team hurting at running back with byes and random injuries might even be able to flex Davis, under the logic that Charles could be limited in Week 9. 

If you're carrying a backup tight end to Jimmy Graham, or have a quarterback you'll never start, it might be worth it to bail on them and speculate on Davis. 


Knile Davis has 25 total yards in Week 8


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/27/2013) Chiefs running back Knile Davis carried the ball three times for 13 yards in the team's Week 8 victory over the Browns. He also caught a pass for 12 yards. Davis last hit double-digits in rushing yards in Week 3, against the Eagles. 

Davis and the Chiefs travel to Buffalo to face the Bills in Week 9. 


Chiefs get small contributions from several players


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Several Chiefs skill position players made small contributions to the win Sunday against Houston. Among them were Knile Davis, who had two carries for 5 yards, and Cyrus Gray, who added three yards on one attempt.

Anthony Sherman caught two passes for 10 yards. Tight end Sean McGrath, who lost his starting job upon the return of Anthony Fasano from injury, had one reception for 1 yard.


Knile Davis a minor contributor


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Chiefs running back Knile Davis did almost nothing during the Week 6 home game against the Raiders. Davis did manage to fumble during the game, however.

Davis caught one pass for minus-1 yards and fumbled on the play. It was recovered. Davis has rushed twice in his last three games for the Chiefs and is not a major member of the offense as it stands heading into Week 7 against Houston.

Keep Knile Davis grounded Week 6


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2013) Chiefs rookie running back Knile Davis is not much of a Fantasy option heading into the Week 6 game at home against Oakland. With Jamaal Charles expected to do the heavy lifting, Davis can be avoided in most leagues. 

He has seen just one rush attempt in each of his last two games for a total of 4 yards. He's not a target in the passing game and has 12 carries all year. He may have a future, but it isn't now for the Chiefs. 


Knile Davis a non-factor in Week 5


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2013) Chiefs backup running back Knile Davis barely saw the field in a game starter Jamaal Charles set season highs with 22 carries for 108 yards Week 5 at Tennessee, carrying the ball just once for 2 yards. He had the exact same line against the Giants last week.

Davis will look to get more work in a game that could offer some garbage time Week 6 against the Raiders.


Knile Davis just looking to factor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/2013) After carrying six times for 25 yards (both career highs) in a tight game at Philadelphia in Week 3, Chiefs running back Knile Davis barely saw the field in a blowout win against the Giants in Week 4, picking up just one carry.

The rookie appears to be firmly behind Jamaal Charles on the depth chart, not even getting the chance to spell him in garbage time. He's still the obvious handcuff for Charles in Fantasy, but you wouldn't want to start him Week 5 at the Titans, who rank 11th against the run, allowing 99.0 yards per game.
