Broncos | Vernon Davis buried on depth chart

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 14:03:49 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis has been passed on the tight end depth chart by TEs Owen Daniels and Virgil Green, mainly after struggling with drops in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The return of QB Peyton Manning as the starting quarterback hasn't helped, either. Davis' opportunities will continue to be limited.

Fantasy Tip: Davis doesn't have any catches or targets since the Week 15 loss to the Steelers, and he's highly unlikely to make an impact in the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots.

Broncos | Vernon Davis a non-factor

Mon, 18 Jan 2016 08:42:23 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis played one snap Sunday, Jan. 17, in the divisional round game.

Fantasy Tip: Davis isn't worth consideration on FantasyScore in the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots.

Broncos | Vernon Davis' role diminishing

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 13:09:50 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis has put himself in a difficult spot because of crucial drops in recent weeks, and his playing time hasn't been helped by the fact that the Broncos have been running more of an up-tempo offense of late. TEs Owen Daniels and Virgil Green are more comfortable working at a quicker pace.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has no catches in the last two weeks and just one catch for five yards in the last three games. Daniels has clearly overtaken Davis as the go-to tight end, so you should be ignoring Davis from here on out on FantasyScore.

Broncos | Vernon Davis, Owen Daniels show well

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 22:17:29 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis posted seven receptions for 74 yards in the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders, his best performance since joining the team. TE Owen Daniels also checked in with three grabs for 43 yards, while TE Virgil Green was blanked on just one target.

Fantasy Tip: Davis could be a solid FantasyScore value down the stretch if he performs like this on a regular basis, but his growth could be stunted if the team goes back to Peyton Manning in Week 15 once he is healthy. Stay tuned.

Broncos | Vernon Davis will play

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 11:58:57 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis (concussion) is officially active for the Week 14 game against the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has caught 12 passes in five games since being acquired by the Broncos. Davis should receive some targets against the Raiders but is not a great fantasy option.

Broncos | Vernon Davis, Andrew Caldwell questionable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 15:25:50 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis (concussion) and WR Andre Caldwell (quadriceps) are both questionable for Week 14 against the Oakland Raiders after being limited in practice Friday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders are a fantastic fantasy matchup for tight ends, but Davis ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) remains a deep sleeper as long as Owen Daniels ($2,400) is stealing targets away from him. Caldwell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has some chemistry with Brock Osweiler, but not enough to make him playable in daily games.

Broncos | Three Broncos limited Thursday

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 16:41:24 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Andre Caldwell (quadriceps) and TEs Owen Daniels (knee) and Vernon Davis (concussion) were all limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 10. Caldwell and Daniels have been limited the past two days, while Davis returns after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Caldwell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has two touchdowns on the season despite hauling in just 10 catches. He's more intriguing with Brock Osweiler under center but remains a very deep FantasyScore sleeper. Daniels ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) and Davis ($2,400) often cannabalize each other and are hard to predict on a weekly basis. It's best to avoid them.

Broncos | Vernon Davis ready to play

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 15:10:42 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis (concussion) will be ready to play against the Oakland Raiders in Week 14 after being cleared from the concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: While the Raiders are one of the best matchups for opposing tight ends, it's too hard to predict which tight end will have the better game for Denver, Davis ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) or Owen Daniels ($2,400). Daniels is probably the safer option, but both remain dart throws as deep sleepers.

Broncos | Vernon Davis cleared

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 12:21:32 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis (concussion) was cleared to practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) had just two catches for 25 yards last week and continues to split time with Owen Daniels ($2,400), making it hard to rely on either in daily formats. The Oakland Raiders are an excellent matchup for tight ends, but Davis and Daniels remain nothing more than deep sleepers.

Broncos | Vernon Davis in concussion protocol

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 15:45:25 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Vernon Davis (concussion) and LB Danny Trevathan (concussion) remain in the concussion protocol, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) remains very iffy for this weekend against the Oakland Raiders. He's already a low-end tight end play each week, so avoid him. That makes Owen Daniels ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) more attractive as a deep sleeper, though, especially if Davis sits out. The Raiders are really bad at defending tight ends.
