Nov. 21 8:35 PM PT9:35 PM MT10:35 PM CT11:35 PM ET4:35 GMT12:35 9:35 PM MST11:35 PM EST8:35 UAE05:3523:35 ET10:35 PM CT2:35 - Davis failed to live up to his lofty fantasy standards Friday.
Analysis: Davis led the Pelicans with 18 points and nine rebounds. It was the first time in eight games Davis has failed to eclipse 20 points. Look for a better effort Saturday in Utah.

Oct. 28 6:57 PM PT7:57 PM MT8:57 PM CT9:57 PM ET1:57 GMT9:57 6:57 PM MST8:57 PM EST5:57 UAE (+1)02:5721:57 ET7:57 PM CT23:57 - Davis filled the stat sheet in Tuesday night's opener against Orlando, finishing one block shy of a triple-double.
Analysis: In addition to the nine blocks, Davis had 26 points, 17 rebounds and three steals. It wouldn't be at all surprising to see him finish as the No. 1 player in fantasy if he can stay healthy.
