Atlanta Falcons RBs Mike Davis, Javian Hawkins, Caleb Huntley and Qadree Ollison are all expected to compete for touches in the backfield in 2021, according to comments made by running backs coach Desmond Kitchings. According to Tori McElhaney of The Athletic, Kitchens noted how competitive the running back group will be and that 'the door is wide open' for anyone to take over.
Huddle Up: Davis should be considered the frontrunner, but the truth of the matter is none of the backs have proven much of anything in the NFL. Hawkins and Huntley are undrafted rookie free agents, while Ollison has totaled 24 touches across two seasons. Davis is coming off a career year in which he compiled 224 touches with the Carolina Panthers, but it was obvious he wore down as the season came to a close. Atlanta remains a likely candidate to sign a veteran free-agent runner to pair with Davis. Short of that, expect Davis to push for 200-plus touches and Hawkins to be the primary change-of-pace back.

Free-agent RB Mike Davis (Panthers) agreed to a two-year, $5.5 million contract with the Atlanta Falcons Tuesday, March 23. He'll receive $3 million fully guaranteed in 2021.
Huddle Up: Davis came out of nowhere to rush for 642 yards (3.9 yards per rush) and six touchdowns, but he also had 59 receptions for 373 yards and two touchdowns. He'll be an intriguing RB3 candidate in Atlanta.

Carolina Panthers RB Mike Davis rushed 14 times for just 28 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Washington Football Team, helping him reach 1,000 total scrimmage yards for the season.
Huddle Up: Davis has had a career year handling the No. 1 duties for a majority of the season with Christian McCaffrey sidelined due to a myriad of injuries. He has shown he can be a productive back in the NFL, and if he isn't in Carolina in 2021, he'll get a chance somewhere.
