Ed Davis scored just six points on 3-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and one block in 22 minutes off the bench on Friday.
Davis has been all over the board this season and the injury to Kobe Bryant should help him a little bit, but it's anybody's guess how Byron Scott is going to deploy him. Keep a close eye on him and if you're feeling lucky and need a big man consider being an early adopter. Jan 24 - 3:33 AM

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis neared a double-double in Monday's loss to the Suns, scoring eight points on 2-of-7 shooting with 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in just 22 minutes.

Davis has not been productive for owners lately and Byron Scott isn't cooperating on the playing time side of things. There appears to be some upside wrapped up inside of Davis, but whether or not we'll see it or he can come through on his end are total question marks.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis double-doubled in the Lakers' 101-84 win over the Magic on Friday, scoring 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and three blocks in just 22 minutes.

Davis has been on and off waiver wires quite a bit and he theoretically has some upside if the Lakers toss the ball out there and let the young guys play.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis managed just four points, three rebounds and a block in Wednesday's ugly loss to the Clippers.

Davis has been brutal over his last two games, totaling just eight points and seven rebounds, but was playing well prior to those two games. He should bounce back as long as he continues to start for the Lakers, and it makes no sense that they would turn to Carlos Boozer given that they're tanking and sitting at just 11 wins on the season. Boozer played just 15 minutes in tonight's blowout, while Davis played 23 minutes.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis scored a season-high 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting with eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks over 28 minutes in Friday's loss to the Grizzlies.

Davis had his revenge game and it also looked like Kobe Bryant trusted him, which can only be a good thing. Davis hit 6-of-8 free throws and though one of those misses was a key one late, he's been doing better in that area lately and he's returning mid-round value over the past two weeks. Considering the state of the Lakers and Davis' upside in general, he should owned in all standard formats. As for Kobe, he nearly triple-doubled in the loss.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis (nose) will play on Friday night against the Grizzlies.

He is likely going to wear a mask after a doctor visit on Wednesday. Davis should see minutes in the 20s and he'll get everyone's favorite narrative against his former team: The Revenge Game. Still, the Grizzlies handle big men very well, so his owners shouldn't be too excited about him.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis suffered a broken nose in Tuesday's win over the Nuggets, and is scheduled to visit a doctor on Wednesday.

We should have an update on his status Wednesday afternoon, so owners should plan on checking back. While Davis may not be in danger of missing any time, he would likely have to wear a protective mask until his nose heals. Davis finished Tuesday's game with seven points, four boards, two assists and one block in 30 minutes.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis double-doubled with 10 points, 11 boards and one block in Friday's loss to the Mavs.

Davis hit just 1-of-6 shots from the field but 8-of-10 shots from the foul line to go with two assists. Kobe's eventual return could spoil his production, but he has played well enough lately and has enough upside to be owned in all standard formats.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis turned in a nice line in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday with 13 points, 14 boards and three blocks in 33 minutes.

Big men tend not to have great games against the Bulls, but Boss' seven offensive boards were a big part of his success. Davis doesn't have eye-popping numbers in his previous 10 games, averaging 8.3 points, 6.3 boards and 1.0 blocks in 24.9 minutes. Still, the blocks and low turnovers have given him seventh-round fantasy value in that span. He's a hold in standard leagues.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis scored a season-high 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting with nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 32 minutes in Friday's 104-103 loss to the Thunder.

Davis has been on the side of a milk carton lately and this is a much-needed game to bring him back onto watch lists. It's going to take more than one good game to get our support as an add in standard formats, but if you have dead weight and want to take a stab on a turnaround there is some upside to latch onto.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis missed all five of his shots in Monday's blowout loss to the Pacers, finishing with zero points, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 23 minutes.

The defensive stats are nice but there has been some sort of problem with his production just about every night for a while now. Davis looked like a solid pickup at the beginning of the year but whatever the issue may be now, owners that were stashing in standard formats should move on.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis' streak of quiet starts continued on Sunday with six points, four rebounds, three assists and one block in just 21 minutes of action vs. the Timberwolves.

It was a close game and Davis wasn't in any foul trouble, but coach Byron Scott opted to play him just 21 minutes for the second game in a row. Carlos Boozer notched 22 points and 13 rebounds off the bench and seems inspired to regain his starting job, but Davis has enough upside to take a wait-and-see approach in typical fantasy leagues.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis continued to sputter on Friday against the Spurs, scoring just two points on 1-of-3 shooting with six rebounds, four assists and one steal in 21 minutes.

Carlos Boozer went for 14 and 13 with two blocks and Davis is clearly the better player for the Lakers, but Byron Scott isn't ready to bench the veteran and unleash the younger player just yet. Davis has moved into the starting lineup and hasn't been too bad this week, but he's not a must-own player even if he's a guy to watch very closely.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis scored 11 points in Tuesday's win over the Kings, adding six boards and two assists in 26 minutes.

He shot a perfect 5-of-5 from the field but he failed to block a shot or record a steal, which was a little disappointing. However, he's now the starting PF for the Lakers and should be better than this on most nights. If you are in need of a big who can contribute steady blocks and rebounds, Davis may be your man.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Byron Scott said he intends to use his new starting lineup for the next 10 to 15 games.

If Scott stays true to his word, that means Ronnie Price will continue to start over Jeremy Lin, but more importantly to fantasy owners, it means Ed Davis will keep his spot over Carlos Boozer. Davis had 12 points, seven boards and two blocks in 30 minutes in his first start, and he is a prime waiver-wire pickup now that he's ascended to the starting lineup.
