News: Davis had 107 yards on 16 carries and 12 yards on one reception in Monday's 41-14 win over the Patriots. Impact: Owners shouldn't be fooled by the stat line, as the Chiefs were able to hand the ball off 34 times and didn't want to over-exert Jamaal Charles (ankle). Davis will still likely have just a few touches in games that don't allow for the run-heavy approach that Kansas City seemingly prefers. That said, he did well with his 16 carries, which included a 48-yarder in the first half. Unfortunately, Davis dropped a potential touchdown on a swing pass in the red zone. Meanwhile, Jamaal Charles (ankle) looked quite healthy while piling up 108 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis is working on his receiving and pass blocking skills to become an every-down back, the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: Davis replaced Jamaal Charles in the rushing game last week, carrying the ball 32 times for 132 yards and a touchdown. However, he had two touchdowns taken by Joe McKnight because of McKnight's ability to pass block and contribute in the passing game. He is working on that part of his game, and if he can develop it, Davis would give the Chiefs another all-around back if Charles were to suffer another injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis' teammate, Jamaal Charles, is listed as probable for Monday night's game against the Patriots, the Chiefs' official site reports. Impact: Charles is thus likely play against the Patriots on Monday and in that scenario, Davis would presumably return to a reserve/complementary role in Week 4. After racking up 54 carries for 211 yards and three touchdowns while filling in for Charles over the Chiefs' last two games, Davis maintains value as Charles insurance, but an area that he still needs to focus on is taking care of the football. Davis has fumbled three times this season, one of which the Chiefs lost.(RotoWire, )

News: With Jamaal Charles inactive, Davis is in line to handle the bulk of the Chiefs' Week 3 rushing duties.   Impact: With Charles out, Davis should be busy Sunday and thus a candidate to put up solid numbers in Week 3, on the heels of an effort in which he had 22 carries for 79 yards with two touchdowns and added six catches on nine targets for 26 yards in relief of Charles in Week 2.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis carried the ball 32 times for 132 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's 34-15 win at Miami. He did not catch a pass and lost a fumble. Impact: Davis did a great job filling in for an injured Jamaal Charles (ankle), setting a career high in rushing yards, but could have had an even bigger game, if not for Joe McKnight stealing a couple of touchdowns in the red zone, although both of the scores came through the air. Davis should shoulder the load once again, if Charles is unable to go in Week 4 against New England, but the tricky part is that the game is Monday Night.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis' teammate, Jamaal Charles, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, ESPN.com reports. Impact: Despite dealing with what has been characterized as a high ankle sprain, Charles was able to practice Thursday and Friday in a limited fashion, though at this stage, his status for Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff has yet to be confirmed. In the event that Charles is scratched, or limited at all Sunday, Davis -- who had 22 carries for 79 yards with two touchdowns in Week 2 in relief of Charles -- would be in line for an expanded workload.(RotoWire, )

News: Davis replaced the injured Jamaal Charles and ran 22 times for 79 yards and two touchdowns. Impact: He also had six catches for 26 yards. He's clearly the main guy if Charles misses time, so keep an eye on Charles' Week 3 status against Miami.(STATS, 5:08pm)
