49ers | Vernon Davis a non-factor in red zone

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:13:55 -0800

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis has not been targeted in the red zone since Week 1 of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has seen his production plummet across the board this year, and his lack of involvement in the red zone means that fantasy owners can't even hope for a touchdown to salvage a decent point total. At this point, Davis shouldn't be used at FantasyScore regardless of the opponent.

49ers | Vernon Davis wants to be involved

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 13:05:16 -0800

San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis has been frustrated with his role in the team's offense this year. "For me, it's all about coming here, showing up and doing what I have to do to contribute," Davis said. "As far as not getting the ball, (I) leave it up to the offensive coordinator. It's his call." Davis is only averaging 4.1 targets per game after averaging 5.5 targets per game last season. He's also dropped 6 of 31 catchable passes this year, and his 19.4 percent drop rate is the second highest among tight ends in the league, according to Pro Football Focus. Davis' blocking skills have also declined.

Fantasy Tip: The bottom line is that Davis ($5,000) shouldn't be in FantasyScore lineups because of his limited role in the offense and the fact that SF's offense has been struggling as a whole for much of the year. Look elsewhere for your tight end.

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.

49ers | Vernon Davis practices in full

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.

49ers | Vernon Davis will play

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 14:18:32 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: Davis will be able to play but could be limited by the injury during the game. Davis costs $6,300 on FantasyScore and is a solid option for any owners that have not started a tight end yet.
