Jarrad Davis Remains In Detroit's Plans

Despite the Detroit Lions declining the fifth-year option on linebacker Jarrad Davis, head coach Matt Patricia said that Davis remains a foundational piece in the middle of the defense and remains in the team's plans for the foreseeable future. I think JD is a cornerstone of what were trying to do, and hes in those big-picture plans of where were trying to go, Patricia said. He was the 21st overall pick in the 2017 draft and while he's been great in the locker room and at film study as a leader, Davis has been inconsistent on the field. He ranked 83rd out of 89 qualifying players at his position in pass coverage in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus. Davis had career lows across the board last year, too, so he'll need to pick it up quite a bit for Detroit to have any ideas of extending him beyond 2020.

Lions Not Expected To Pick Up Jarrad Davis' Option

The Detroit Lions are not expected to pick up the fifth-year option on linebacker Jarrad Davis, according to a source. Davis will now become a free agent after the 2020 season. He was the 21st overall pick in the first round by the Lions in the 2017 draft, but Davis just hasn't had the production typically associated with a first-round pick. The 24-year-old had 196 combined tackles in his first two seasons but dipped down to 63 tackles and just two sacks in only 11 games for Detroit in 2019. He's recorded only 10 sacks and 19 QB hits in total in his three seasons in the league.

Jarrad Davis, Frank Ragnow Avoid Season-Ending Injuries

Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia said that linebacker Jarrad Davis (ankle) and center Frank Ragnow (knee) avoided season-ending injuries after getting hurt in the preseason game on Friday night against the Bills. It's great news, but both players could still be questionable to suit up in the regular season opener against the Cardinals in two weeks. Davis emerged as a solid inside presence for Detroit's defense last year, while Ragnow is an essential cog in the team's offensive line. You can avoid Detroit's defense/special teams unit in fantasy, though.
