Redskins | Vernon Davis returning to Redskins

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 05:11:32 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent TE Vernon Davis signed a three-year, $15 million deal with the Redskins Tuesday, March 7, according to his Snapchat.

Fantasy Tip: The 33-year-old had a 44-583-2 season, which was his best tally in three years. Jordan Reed remains the guy, but he is injury prone. Davis could be a matchup play in DFS, but his season-long value is minimal as a TE2.

Redskins | Vernon Davis wants to return

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 20:46:48 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent TE Vernon Davis said he would love to re-sign with the Redskins but is letting his agent handle negotiations.

Fantasy Tip: Davis was productive as Jordan Reed's backup, and he was a borderline TE1 when Reed missed time. Reed has a long history of injuries, so Davis could be worth a spot start here and there if he ends up back in Washington.

Redskins | Washington to talk to own FAs at combine

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:28:12 -0800

The Washington Redskins have yet to engage in talks with any of their players with expiring contracts - a list that includes impending free agents WR Pierre Garcon, WR DeSean Jackson, TE Vernon Davis, DE Chris Baker. However, multiple sources report the Redskins expect to meet with the representatives of their impending free agents at the NFL Scouting Combine next week.

Fantasy Tip: It's a common practice for front office personnel and player reps to discuss contracts at the combine, although Washington is making an already very long week even longer by handling its business in this manner. Garcon and Jackson are each expected to command at least $9 million in their next contracts, so both players could be on different teams next season. It's a virtual certainty at least one will not come back.

Redskins | Washington would like Vernon Davis back

Sat, 21 Jan 2017 09:42:40 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent TE Vernon Davis is a player the Redskins would like to re-sign this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Davis received some starts during the season with Jordan Reed injured and finished the season with 44 catches for 583 yards and two touchdowns. He would not be a starter if he remains with the Redskins but probably would have a solid role in the passing game. Davis should be considered a No. 2 tight end in drafts next season.

Redskins | Vernon Davis talking new deal with WAS

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 17:19:26 -0800

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis is already discussing a new deal with the team.

Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old Davis had a bit of a renaissance season in 2016, recording his most catches (44) and receiving yards (583) in three years. He proved to be a valuable piece for the Redskins when the injury-prone Jordan Reed went down, so it makes sense the team would want to bring him back. However, when it comes to fantasy leagues, he'll only have notable value if and when Reed misses extended time again.

Redskins | Vernon Davis rejuvenated

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 06:40:28 -0800

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis is in the top 10 in fantasy points per game over the last five weeks in PPR leagues. Davis has 18 catches for 288 yards and two touchdowns in the last four games.

Fantasy Tip: Davis plays the Green Bay Packers in Week 11, and they've been in the lower half of the league in defending the position the last five weeks. Davis is a sneaky TE1 option.

Redskins | Vernon Davis finishes for 93 yards

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 12:39:37 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis caught five passes for 93 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has been a reliable receiver for the Redskins over the last three weeks and should have a role in the passing game even with Jordan Reed back in the lineup. Owners probably should consider him a No. 2 tight end at this point.

Redskins | Questionable tag for Vernon Davis

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 17:15:48 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Vernon Davis (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has posted decent numbers over the last few weeks while Jordan Reed has been sidelined, but he likely will lose value with Reed expected to play. Owners should avoid Davis and look for other options.
