49ers | Vernon Davis' status uncertain

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 07:59:32 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) could be a game-time decision for Week 3. Davis said he was encouraged with how he felt after some light running and catching drills Friday, Sept. 19.

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 not on the field

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 18:13:17 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has missed the last two practices and may need to sit out this week. With the team's top two tight ends injured, Derek Carrier probably would receive the start but should not be an option in any league.

49ers | No practice for Vernon Davis

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 16:38:14 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 17, and he is still on crutches.

Fantasy Tip: Davis' status for Week 3 is uncertain, but FantasyScore owners probably want to avoid him until he can officially return and prove his health in one full game without any setbacks. With Vance McDonald also hurting, Derek Carrier could potentially be in line for a start.

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.

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 12:25:56 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Davis' status for Week 3 seems to be very much in doubt. Still, keep an eye out for updates throughout the week. Vance McDonald would take his place if Davis is out.

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.

49ers | Vernon Davis not committing to minicamp

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 09:22:15 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis will not fully commit to attend the team's mandatory minicamp that will run from June 17-19. "If it's mandatory, I think I should be there," Davis said. "My foot could get stuck in the grass, and I may not be able to get out ... but if it's mandatory, I think I should be there." Davis is seeking a new contract.

Fantasy Tip: It just got a little trickier for the Niners to lock up Davis after they extended Colin Kaepernick for another six years, including $61 million in guarantees. Davis' situation won't affect his standing as a top-tier tight end.
