Redskins | Vernon Davis to draw another start

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 10:03:28 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis is expected to start the second straight game in Week 7 versus the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Davis logged 97.3 percent of the snaps last week against a Philadelphia Eagles' defense that defends the tight end very well and produced two catches for 50 yards and a touchdown. This week, he'll face a defense that has surrendered a league-high seven scores to tight ends - a fact that makes Davis an excellent spot-start and solid low-cost pivot from Rob Gronkowski in DFS.

Redskins | Vernon Davis could miss final roster

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 11:22:42 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis may not make the final roster if he does not improve as a pass-catcher and blocker, according to The Washington Post's Mike Jones. Jones currently has Davis penciled in as the No. 4 tight end in Washington.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has little fantasy relevance at this point in his career. He'll only be worth a spot start if Jordan Reed, Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen are injured at the same time.

Redskins | Vernon Davis hurt groin

Mon, 30 May 2016 12:15:38 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis (groin) tweaked his groin during organized team activities Tuesday, May 24. Davis said he will be back and ready to go again this week.

Fantasy Tip: Davis will back up Jordan Reed as long as Reed is healthy, which isn't necessarily a guarantee. His glory days have faded, though, and he won't have much fantasy value as long as he's a backup.

Redskins | Vernon Davis financials

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 08:25:25 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis' one-year deal is worth up to $2.4 million if all incentives are met. He has a base salary of $1.35 million with $1.1 million guaranteed. He can earn a $450,000 roster bonus and $100,000 in workout bonuses.

Fantasy Tip: Davis was a ghost for much of last season with a 38-395-0 line with two different teams. Jordan Reed is budding into a star and is in a contract year. It's hard to imagine Davis being much of a factor in fantasy unless Reed goes down.

Redskins | Vernon Davis signs with Redskins

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 08:50:05 -0700

Free-agent TE Vernon Davis (Broncos) agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins Thursday, March 31.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is a shell of himself and was a ghost in Denver, corralling 20 catches for 201 yards and no touchdowns in nine games. He's unlikely to be a factor in fantasy this year.

Redskins | Vernon Davis still of interest to Redskins

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 12:53:34 -0700

Free-agent TE Vernon Davis (Broncos) is still a target of the Washington Redskins, according to general manager Scot McCloughan. Davis met with Washington nearly three weeks ago.

Fantasy Tip: The Redskins are already pretty loaded at tight end with Jordan Reed and Niles Paul. Reed is coming off a career year and will start when healthy. Davis has taken his fantasy value over the hill with him, though. He should no longer be regarded as a TE1, no matter where he plays.

Redskins | Vernon Davis visiting Redskins

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 08:34:05 -0800

Free-agent TE Vernon Davis (Broncos) is visiting with the Washington Redskins Thursday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Davis' fantasy torch has flamed out, but he's worth monitoring to see if he can rediscover some of what made him a fantasy asset.

Broncos | Vernon Davis can play a few more years

Sun, 06 Mar 2016 10:16:32 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Vernon Davis said he would like to play another four or five years if possible.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has not had much success over the last two seasons and finished this season with 395 yards and zero touchdowns. Davis should be able to find a job this offseason but likely will not have much fantasy value.

Broncos | Vernon Davis likely done in Denver

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 13:35:36 -0800

Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Vernon Davis did not catch a single pass after Week 14 and does not appear to be in the team's 2016 plans. "I think that the coaches kind of go in different directions at different times and how things mix and we could never really get up to speed with him. … Tight end's a position we have to look at, still very fluid that we feel like we have to get better there," general manager John Elway said.

Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old Davis will likely have a cold market for his services in free agency and faces long odds in terms of being usable in fantasy again. Owen Daniels may retire, leaving Virgil Green and 2015 third-round pick Jeff Heuerman as an under-the-radar options to keep an eye on moving forward in an offense that isn't shy about using the tight end.

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.
