Curtis Davies may not be Steve Bruce's favorite player right now but he's been racking up strong phantom points since being restored to the starting line-up.
Fantasy managers and real life managers aren't always on the same page about the value of a player and Curtis Davies is a prime example of that early in 2015. Rumors have Steve Bruce ready to move on from one of last season's surprises but fantasy managers have been loving performances like the one he gave in Hull City's 1-0 loss in Week 21. Davies intercepted eight passes and blocked a shot in a double digit (Yahoo) performance. As Michael Dawson and James Chester return to health, it will be interesting to see what becomes of Davies and his starters minutes. Jan 14 - 1:11 PM

Curtis Davies seems to be on the outs at Hull City but the injury to Michael Dawson has him back in the line-up and producing over the festive period.

Curtis Davies has strung together some solid phantom point efforts over the course of the festive period that has seen him return to the starting line-up. Seemingly in Steve Bruce's doghouse, Davies did produce a rotten back pass that led to a Sunderland goal on Boxing Day. Hull City won that one but they weren't as lucky on Sunday against Leicester City but Davies was in double digits after adding a shot on target to four tackles won, two corners won, and two passes intercepted. Maybe Davies crawls out of the doghouse but if not, he could be headed elsewhere in January and his destination could also dramatically impact his fantasy value.

Curtis Davies is a doubt for Hull City's Boxing Day trip to the Stadium of Light with a calf issue.

Hull City have all sorts of issues with Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore both suspended and Momo Diame and Michael Dawson both out injured. Dawson's arrival has seen Davies position at the club slip somewhat but with the former Spurs man out until mid-January at the earliest, Steve Bruce will need Davies to find a way to play as often as possible. The results have been terrible for months and missing both Dawson and Davies isn't likely to help turn things around.

Curtis Davies has been rested (or rotated or benched) for two consecutive matches but seems likely to return with Chelsea the upcoming opponent requiring a stalwart defensive effort.

After being something of a revelation last season after making the jump up from the Championship, Curtis Davies hasn't been quite as impressive so far this season. Whether it is down to the player himself, fatigue, or the play of the team around him Steve Bruce has had Davies on the bench for the last two matches. With Davies rested and Chelsea the opponent, it seems likely that Steve Bruce will require all hands on deck which likely means Davies will return to the starting line-up.

Curtis Davies faces a fitness check on his sore back before Hull City's Week 12 home match against Spurs.

Hull City welcome back three key players in the form of Allan McGregor, Michael Dawson and Nikica Jelavic but that good could be undone if defensive rock Curtis Davies isn't available. The center back's, urm, back is hurting and Steve Bruce faces uncertainty over his ability to play as his club look to rebound from their horrible loss to Burnley in Week 11. You're going to have to wait until line-ups are out to decide what to do on this one.

Hull City were under a steady bombardment by the Liverpool attack but refused to concede, earning a cheeky road point at Anfield in a 0-0 final.

Liverpool dominated the stat sheet but if there were a stat for "moxie", Hull certainly were the better side. Despite being on the back foot for most of the match, they never appeared disorganized and tore down every buildup by the Reds systematically, with Davies as the leader in the back. On the negative side, their own attack was virtually non-existent and may be a worry going forward. They will try to correct when they host a tough opponent in Southampton next weekend.

Curtis Davies showed well in Hull City's 2-0 Week 7 win over Crystal Palace evoking memories of his exceptional year last year.

Curtis Davies has been good so far this season both in real life and for his fantasy managers but he hasn't been quite as good as he was last season until this past week. Part of the issue has been Hull City's overall tendency to give up goals late and part of it has been a lower volume of tackles and interceptions from the player himself. Week 7 saw Davies return to his commanding best as HCFC finally rewarded supporters with a clean sheet victory.

Curtis Davies hasn't lived up to his performances from last season yet but Week 6 saw him at least start to approach those levels despite the 4-2 loss to Manchester City.

Curtis Davies was an absolute stud last season. Despite his team not notching an exceptional number of clean sheets he won enough tackles, blocked enough shots and intercepted enough passes to make himself one of the better fantasy defenders available in leagues that give credit for those sorts of things. He started the season significantly off of that pace but picked it up against Manchester City with two blocked shots, five passes intercepted and three tackles won. In leagues that take points away from defenders for goals scored against, he probably didn't have a great week but it was good to see him producing defending stats like he did last season.

With nothing to play for in the league and a huge Cup match against Arsenal next Sunday Curtis Davies is likely to be rested to ensure he is at his best for the FA Cup.

It isn't 100% clear exactly who Steve Bruce will want to rest and who he will want to play to make sure they are sharp and comfortable together but it seems highly likely that the stalwart Davies will be in the former group. With Paul McShane returning from injury the situation seems ripe for McShane to get some minutes to help with match fitness if he is needed as a sub while Davies could use a rest after his breakout campaign in the top flight.

Hull City were rather disorganized and paid for it in a 1-4 loss against Newcastle United, though Curtis Davies was able to deliver his third goal of the season.

Hull were in this one, and could easily have been ahead, but nothing went right and they made more and more mistakes as the game went on. In the beginning, a fine double save by Tim Krul led to a counter attack which the Tigers failed to contain, giving them the early deficit. Then a terrible attempted pass by Maynor Figueroa back toward the keeper was not weighted properly and allowed Loic Remy to score. Another Newcastle attack was blundered when Allan McGregor spilled a Yohan Gouffran shot which resulted in yet another goal. However, if you paid the premium price for Curtis Davies, you were rewarded with his 3rd goal of the season, as he headed home a free kick delivered by Tom Huddlestone.

Curtis Davies missed Hull's loss to Arsenal in mid-week but returns for the match with Swansea after serving his suspension for accumulation.

'Tis the season for accumulation suspensions and Curtis Davies was one of those so penalized in mid-week. At the heart of a surprising Hull City defense in the early going, his absence certainly made things easier on Arsenal at both ends of the pitch. Swansea certainly looked great against Newcastle but both Hull and the Swans have been up and down this season and Davies' return along with the absences of Michu and Bony could be enough to tip things in Hull City's favor over the weekend.

Hull City's linch-pin defender, Curtis Davies, will miss today's match at Arsenal as he picked up his fifth yellow card against Liverpool.

With Curtis Davies suspended, and Paul McShane injured, Hull could bring Abdoulaye Faye in to partner Alex Bruce.

Hull City made difficult work of a match that saw Sunderland do everything they could to give away the three points.

It isn't clear what else Sunderland could have done for Hull City other than abandoning the pitch entirely. First there was an own goal from Carlos Cuellar. Keiran Westwood went off injured toward the end of the first half. As if that wasn't enough, Sunderland managed to lose TWO players - Lee Catermole and Andrea Dossena - to red cards in first half stoppage time. You might have expected Hull to score freely in the second half but all they could do was manage to keep the clean sheet for Steve Harper and the defense.

Curtis Davies provided the lone goal for Hull City Tigers in the 40th minute as they end up with a 1-1 draw at home against Cardiff City.

Davies was the recipient of a marvelous long range cross by Tom Huddlestone. Huddlestone sent the ball from the midfield touchline right to the front of goal where Davies was able to outrun the pack, the ball fell perfectly to his foot, and he was able to finish. The Tigers couldn't hold the lead however as Cardiff would later equalize.
