49ers | Vernon Davis quiet again

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 10:38:45 -0800

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis had three catches for just 21 yards in the team's Week 12 win over the Washington Redskins, and that came after he had two catches or less in four straight games. Davis stopped his routes too soon on two of his catches and also dropped what would have been a 20-yard pass. Davis has played in six straight games after missing two games earlier this year with injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is simply too inconsistent to be relied on at FantasyScore, even though the Seattle Seahawks, the Niners' Week 13 matchup, have been vulnerable to tight ends throughout the season.

49ers | Vernon Davis probable for Week 7

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 15:18:16 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 17, and is probable for Week 7 against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Davis returned last week to post three catches (six targets) for 30 yards. Davis' fantasy value is heavily reliant on touchdowns, making him a boom or bust pick each week. The Broncos remain somewhat vulnerable to opposing tight ends, though, making Davis ($6,300) a decent FantasyScore pick this week.

49ers | Vernon Davis a full participant

Thu, 16 Oct 2014 17:41:54 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Since catching a pair of touchdowns in Week 1, Davis has been a non-factor in the passing game. Injuries have played a role, but Davis hasn't had more than three catches in his last three starts. With a $6,300 salary (12.6% of cap) at FantasyScore in Week 7, Davis could struggle to live up to his price tag.

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 17:12:54 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($6,300; or 12.6 percent of cap) is still a risky play in FantasyScore leagues heading into Week 7, as doesn't seem quite 100 percent just yet. It was a good sign he practiced in full Wednesday, however.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) will be able to play in Week 7 even though he is listed as questionable.

49ers | Vernon Davis limited at practice

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 17:38:29 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 9, and he is on pace to play in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Although Davis is on track to play Monday night, he has already missed a couple of games this year with injuries, and he has basically been a non-factor since the opener when he caught a pair of touchdowns. His $6,300 salary (12.6% of cap) at FantasyScore ranks sixth at the position, and there are cheaper options available that have been more reliable this season.

Sun, 05 Oct 2014 12:13:08 -0700

49ers | Vernon Davis not expected to play

Sat, 04 Oct 2014 09:51:16 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) is not expected to play in Week 5 unless he shows dramatic improvement over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: With Vance McDonald also listed as questionable, Derek Carrier could receive the start in Week 5. Carrier only caught one pass in Week 4 but could be a sleeper tight end option on FantasyScore at $3,000.

49ers | Vernon Davis listed as questionable

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 16:45:40 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) did not practice Friday, Oct. 3, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 5 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: At $6300 (or 12.6 percent of your salary cap), Davis is overpriced and way too risky in FantasyScore in Week 5. If Davis and Vance McDonald cannot play, Derek Carrier could be a bargain at just $3000 (or 6.0 percent of the salary cap).

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 16:32:20 -0700

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 18:20:18 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Earlier reports said Davis had back spasms, and he expected to play in Week 5. However, his status for the next game appears to be anything but a certainty at this point. Derek Carrier would take on added important if Davis is back on the shelf.

49ers | 49ers optimistic about Vernon Davis

Sat, 27 Sep 2014 20:37:19 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) is questionable for the team's Week 4 game, but head coach Jim Harbaugh said he is "optimistic" that Davis will play.

Fantasy Tip: While Davis still isn't a lock to suit up, Harbaugh's comments seem to indicate that he has a good chance to play in Week 4. Meanwhile, a matchup against a Philadelphia defense ranked 30th against the pass should provide Davis with the potential for a big game. He will cost 14.2% of the cap ($7,100) at FantasyScore, but make sure to check back tomorrow for any more updates before committing to him.

49ers | Vernon Davis uncertain for Week 4

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 20:09:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) said Friday, Sept. 26, that he still feels some pain in his ankle and expects to be a game-time decision for the Week 4 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Officially, he is listed as questionable.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners and those in weekly leagues will want to steer far clear of Davis. If Davis is inactive, Vance McDonald ($3700) and Derek Carrier ($3700) might each be deep sleepers at just 7.4 percent of the salary cap.

49ers | Vernon Davis non-committal on status

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 15:19:38 -0700

Updating previous reports, San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) said his ankle "feels a lot better," but he's not ready to say he'll be able to play in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Davis sat out in Week 3. TE Vance McDonald (knee) said he's "absolutely" confident that he'll play against the Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: The bad news for Davis owners is that their game is in the afternoon Sunday. It's not smart to roll the dice with Davis in your FantasyScore lineups. In standard leagues, if you take the chance, be prepared to have a backup tight end at your disposal that plays in those later games or on Monday night.

Fantasy Tip: Davis probably would be limited if he is active for the game. Davis costs $7,400 on FantasyScore this week, but owners should look to spend their money on a healthier tight end.

49ers | Vernon Davis listed as questionable

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 16:50:22 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) did not practice Friday, Sept. 19, and he is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: At $7400, or 14.8 percent of your FantasyScore salary, Davis is much too risky to start in Week 3. He very well could be sidelined. In fact, with Vance McDonald also hurting, Derek Carrier could make the start. At $3700, or just 7.4 percent of FantasyScore salary, he is a nice sleeper if he gets the nod.

49ers | Vernon Davis has ankle bruise

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 20:48:19 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) has a deep bone bruise but no structural damage to his ankle, and the team is optimistic he will be able to play in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: At $7,400, Davis has the fourth-highest salary among tight ends in FantasyScore, and shelling out that much money for a player facing a strong Arizona secondary at less than 100 percent is risky.

49ers | Vernon Davis scores two TDs

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 10:31:10 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis had four catches for 44 yards and two touchdowns in the team's win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 Sunday, Sept. 7. Davis now has 53 receiving touchdowns, which is most in the NFL since 2009, including the playoffs.

Fantasy Tip: It was a good start for Davis, but don't let it fool you. Davis' fantasy value is heavily touchdown-reliant, and it'll be hard for him to keep up those ratios of catches to TDs, especially against teams with good pass rushes, as he'll often be kept in to block.

49ers | Vernon Davis shouldn't be impacted by Jimmy Graham ruling

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 12:25:40 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis' holdout for a new contract should not be impacted by Jimmy Graham being ruled as a tight end, according to a source. Davis lined up as a tight end more than a wide receiver in 2013 and has freely admitted that he is a tight end. The 49ers don't appear inclined to give Davis a new deal. He is currently the third-highest paid tight end. San Francisco veterans report to training camp July 24.

49ers | Vernon Davis absent

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 09:37:20 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis is indeed absent for the first day of the team's mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 17, according to a league source. Davis is holding out for a new contract. Davis also skipped the team's voluntary organized team activities earlier this month.

Fantasy Tip: Davis' absence won't have an impact on his fantasy value in 2014, but it will allow Vance McDonald and Brent Celek to receive valuable repetitions with the first unit. Davis remains a top-tier tight end.
