Ed Davis played 17 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with two points and five rebounds.
With Al-Farouq Aminu now back in action, Davis could see his playing time take a hit. Although, Aminu isn't having the strongest season. Whatever the case, most of Aminu's minutes should come from Davis, so his owners in deeper leagues should expect a hit there. Dec 7 - 10:59 PM

Ed Davis played 32 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday with two points, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

That's a lot of playing time and it shows that coach Terry Stotts has become somewhat committed to using Davis as his starting big man. Over his last five, Davis averaged 7.2 points, 6.2 boards, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 steals on 64.0 percent from the field and 80.0 percent from the line. He's been a solid short-term hold, but his value will drop once Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) returns.
Dec 1 - 1:23 AM

Ed Davis will start against the Pacers on Wednesday night.

Against a quicker Thaddeus Young, this is somewhat surprising. Davis will likely have to guard Myles Turner in this game and should focus on the defensive end. He's not a fantasy option in most leagues.
Nov 30 - 9:59 PM

Ed Davis started at PF again on Sunday, finishing with seven points on 3-of-3 FGs and 1-of-2 FTs, three rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes.

Terry Stotts was mixing and matching his lineup in the absence of Al-Farouq Aminu, but he seems to have settled on Davis as his every-night PF. In his first five starts, Davis averaged 6.4 points, 7.2 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.0 blocks in 24.0 minutes per game. That's a good indication of his low-end value until Aminu returns -- just don't expect him to continue making 85.7 percent of his free throws as a starter.
Nov 28 - 12:16 AM

Ed Davis started on Friday vs. the Pelicans and scored nine points with six rebounds, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.

This was his fifth start in a row, but it would be a little surprising if he keeps his job when Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) returns. Davis is averaging 6.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.0 blocks on 54.2 percent shooting as a starter, so he's more of a deep-league asset unless he heats up.
Nov 26 - 1:29 AM

Ed Davis will start against the Pelicans on Friday.

Starting Davis didn't work on Wednesday against Kevin Love, but they'll need a big body against Anthony Davis. Expect Ed to play minutes in the low 20s.
Nov 25 - 9:44 PM

Ed Davis started the first half and came off the bench in the second half in Wednesday's loss to the Cavs, finishing with four points, three rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes.

It looked like Boss Davis had a chance to lock down a starting gig until Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) returned to action, but the Blazers getting involved in a Love fest may have hurt his chances. Davis was doing a decent job on the stat sheet in his previous three starts, averaging 6.3 points, 9.0 boards, 1.7 assists and 1.3 blocks in 24.7 minutes per game. He's more of a deep-league guy right now and would lose value once Aminu comes back.
Nov 23 - 10:49 PM

Ed Davis is expected to start again on Wednesday to face the Cavs.

This matchup isn't quite as favorable for Davis, so it suggests he'll be getting the starts until Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) can return. Coach Terry Stotts could mix it up and it would hardly be a surprise to see someone else start the third quarter over Davis. This news is slightly discouraging to the values of Allen Crabbe, Meyers Leonard and Evan Turner.
Nov 23 - 7:00 PM

Ed Davis made his third straight start against the Knicks on Tuesday, scoring 14 points with 10 rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes.

It was his first double-double of the season and the points and minutes were both season highs. Davis shot 7-of-9 from the field and you have to love that workload, but keep in mind that he was quiet in his previous two starts with averages of 2.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.0 block. Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) is also said to be nearing a return, so Davis is not a great pickup unless he does this again.
Nov 22 - 10:53 PM

Ed Davis got another start on Sunday, but didn't do much during his 19 minutes of floor time, tallying three points, six boards, three assists, two blocks and two turnovers.

Head coach Terry Stotts will continue to alternate his starting power forward based on the matchup, but whether Davis is starting or coming off the bench is pretty much irrelevant. He's averaging just 2.7 points and 4.7 boards on the year and he's never eclipsed the 21-minute mark. Leave him on the wire.
Nov 20 - 6:46 PM

Ed Davis will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nets.

Since Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) went down the starting power forward spot in Portland has been in flux with Davis and Meyers Leonard getting the call depending on the matchup. It'll be Davis tonight, but he'll likely be splitting minutes with Leonard, which severely limits his value. Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum, Moe Harkless and Mason Plumlee will join him in the starting five.

Ed Davis started on Friday vs. the Pelicans, scoring two points with 11 rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes.

The Blazers started him to guard Anthony Davis, but he picked up four fouls and never really got it going. Davis will likely return to the bench on Sunday vs. the Nets and he was averaging 14.2 minutes per game prior to Friday, so he belongs on the wire in most leagues.
Nov 18 - 11:40 PM

Ed Davis will start on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

This will be his first start for the Blazers and it makes sense to put him in the first unit tonight to match up with Anthony Davis. He's only been getting 14.2 minutes per game this season, and he's not a great add in most cases unless the Blazers decide to stick with him in the starting lineup.
Nov 18 - 7:57 PM

Ed Davis came off the bench for nine points, nine rebounds and nothing else (other than five fouls) in 19 minutes on Tuesday.

He hit 4-of-5 shots, but the nine points were the most he's scored this season. He's not really getting enough minutes to be a reliable fantasy player, so don't be fooled by one decent line in a blowout loss.
Nov 16 - 12:38 AM

Ed Davis came off the bench for two points, six rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes vs. the Jazz on Wednesday.

Davis pulled himself out of Tuesday's practice, but his presence in a meaningless game the next day proves that he's fine. The bad news is that his marginal fantasy appeal will be erased once Meyers Leonard (back) and Festus Ezeli (knee) get back in the mix.
