2020 NFL Draft: Bills grab potential long-term downfield option Gabriel Davis in the fourth round

We’ve been writing up nearly every Fantasy-relevant wide receiver taken through the first two days, but some of them just won’t have a strong path to playing time right away. We’ll break down the Fantasy landing spots of all of them right here as a tracker of which teams added depth to the position. We’ll be updating this throughout the weekend. 

Pick No. 94: Devin Duvernay to the Ravens

The Ravens added some speed late in the third round, bringing in former Texas slot receiver Devin Duvernay and his 4.39 40-yard dash time. Duvernay wasn’t very productive until his senior season at Texas, but he broke out to account for 37% of the Longhorns’ receiving yardage last year. A YAC specialist with underdeveloped receiving skills, Duvernay caught a lot of passes near the line of scrimmage and does a lot with the ball in his hands after the catch. He profiles as an athlete more than a Fantasy producer, and fits into a run-first offense behind Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews, and potentially more names, not that a third pass-catcher was viable for Fantasy last year. 

If Duvernay contributes — and I’d still take Miles Boykin and probably Willie Snead as better bets for 2020 — it’s likely to be with some sporadic splash plays, but nothing worth banking on in Fantasy. 

Pick No. 128: Gabriel Davis to the Bills

An intriguing prospect out of UCF, Davis combines a solid age-adjusted production profile with a nice landing spot for a late-round receiver. The Bills nabbed Davis in the fourth round, and while he’ll have trouble cracking the field at first, he profiles as a potential long-term replacement for John Brown. The biggest question mark in Davis’s game was his ability to run a full route tree, but a vertical receiver makes a lot of sense with the big arm and mobility of Josh Allen. 

Davis isn’t a burner by any means — he ran a 4.54 40-yard dash, which certainly isn’t a bad time for a 6-2, 216-pound receiver. But he won down the field in college, as evidenced by his 81st percentile 17.2 yards per reception in college. The biggest plus for Davis is his college production — he looked like one of the best late-round sleeper options at the position based on the advanced production metrics that have done a good job of predicting receivers who can outperform their draft position.
