Tyrion Davis-Price, Dynasty Fantasy Football Rookie Running Back
Our thoughts on 2022 NFL rookie running back, Tyrion Davis-Price.
6'0" 211 lbs.
4.48 forty-yard dash
30” Vertical Jump @ combine; 35.5" Vert @ Pro Day
"Davis-Price can be part of an NFL rotation for several years at the NFL-level."
Big frame & well-proportioned build
Drops pads effectively between the tackles and absorbs hits
Run balance and power help him to pick up yards post-contact
Above average open-field speed for his size
One of the most consistent pass blockers in this class
Most productive runs came in the second half of games
At his best late in the season; averaged 123.3 YPG last 7 in ‘21
Looks game fast w/ a 90th-percentile speed score
Nice stiff leg cut, gets north-south fast
Proven durability and plenty of tread on the tires
Quick but not explosive, especially when trying to bounce outside
Needs work on pacing and knowing where his blockers are
Too much contact inside, sometimes with his own blockers
Scored a TD in only 3 of 12 games in ‘21
3 fumbles on 221 touches in ‘21
Averaged less than 5 YPC all 3 college seasons
Not a proven pass-catcher
No special teams experience
Not sure he can be a short yardage/goal line. Gets held up at times.
All of his 2021 TDs were in 3 weeks.
His 4.8 YPC average is deceptive. Would be 3.7 if not for a few big games.
Looks like a good fit for the 49ers. Overall, Davis-Price isn't going to do anything flashy, but he's a physical, downhill runner who breaks tackles late in games and does an above-average job in pass protection. He has the ability to be part of a rotation for several years at the NFL-level.
