Davis Mills News

  • Davis Mills gets one year · Jul 3, 2022

    In a recent roster ranking article, the Texans were ranked last.

    It's no surprise though there are multiple teams vying for the less-than-ideal 'honor.' Sophomore quarterback Davis Mills showed that he may have NFL upside after looking like a starter late in 2021. That said, with a strong 2023 draft class, most notably at quarterback, the team will be hard pressed to keep Mills under-center unless he has a standout 2022 campaign. Similar to 10th-overall selection Josh Rosen in 2018 by the Cardinals before their selection of Kyler Murray, another coaching change or a high draft selection would likely end Mills' time as a starter as the team looks for a marquee name as its new face of the franchise. Mills controls his own destiny and should consider 2022 a resume-building season. He's found as DLF's QB30 showing that he's acknowledged as a very tenuous starter.

  • Davis Mills is the guy · May 25, 2022

    Texans head coach Lovie Smith said "He's our quarterback" when speaking of sophomore quarterback Davis Mills.

    Mills struggled out of the gate in 2021, losing his job, but returning late in the season, ultimately looking like an NFL starting quarterback to finish the year. There's arguably no quarterback more on the hot-seat in 2022 than Mills who will have one year to show he's capable of being a long-term starter for a team likely to have another high pick in 2023 in what projects to be a much more compelling quarterback class. Now entering his second season, the game will have slowed for the sophomore and receiver Brandin Cooks was retained as an important weapon for Mills. As evidenced by his QB30 ranking on DLF's quarterback rankings, Mills has a lot to prove in 2022 but if he can retain his starting role into 2023, will have made for a low-cost starting option with upside in dynasty.

  • Davis Mills gets new receiver · Apr 30, 2022

    The Texans selected Alabama receiver John Metchie III with the 44th overall selection of the 2022 NFL Draft

    Metchie had been flying under the radar due to a late-season ACL injury but has been rising as the draft drew closer. A dynamic playmaker with the ball in his hands, not unlike former teammate Jaylen Waddle, Metchie will immediately upgrade the passing game for sophomore rising quarterback Davis Mills. Mills struggled mightily early as a rookie, was replaced mid-season, but was reinstated in December and began looking the part over the last five games of the season, securing the starting job for 2022. With veteran Brandin Cooks as the WR1 and 2021 rookie Nico Collins a prototypical "X" receiver, Metchie figures to occupy the slot role and should see material snaps in his rookie season. As for Davis Mills, DLF's QB29, he'll be a risk-on late round sleeper at quarterback but with an upgraded offense.

  • Davis Mills gets vote of confidence · Apr 13, 2022

    New Texans head coach Lovie Smith said he's a "believer" in sophomore quarterback Davis Mills.

    Mills was shaky in early action of 2021 but ended the season looked far more poised and comfortable under-center, certainly enough so to be the starter when 2022 kicks off. In the final four games of 2021, the rookie threw for over 900 yards with an 8:2 touchdown to interception ratio. The team also recently extended top receiver Brandin Cooks and will be looking to surround Mills with other young playmakers during the upcoming NFL Draft. As DLF's QB29 ranking shows, Davis Mills has a long way to go to prove his worth in the dynasty format though is a low-cost developmental option at the position with some attached superflex intrigue.
