It was just amazing to see Davis come up empty week after week in 2014 after a handful of very successful seasons. He finished with only 26 catches on 59 targets for 245 yards and two TDs. Vernon averaged only 9.4 yards per catch, which was 3.5 yards below his career average. After Week 1, Vernon didn't score and gained fewer than 40 yards in each of his next 13 games. Davis suffered an ankle injury in mid-September and a back issue in early October. In his career, Vernon has 55 TDs in 131 games and has wrapped up two seasons with 13 touchdowns. He'll never see a ton of targets (averaging 5.2 per game in his career). His upside is created by his big-play ability; he averaged 16.3 yards per catch in 2010 and 2013). He has five 50-catch seasons on his resume and four years with more than 750 yards. Last season was a throwaway year due to injuries and poor play from San Fran's offense. Davis should be line for at least 55 catches, 700 yards and 5-7 scores. He is a complete steal in the early draft season; his ADP of 181 makes him the the 24th TE off the board. I expect Davis to finish 2015 as a top-12 tight end.

Latest Update

Oct-02-15 49ers TE Vernon Davis is doubtful for Week 4

San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis has been dealing with a knee injury since Week 3. He has not been able to practice all week and is now considered doubtful to play this weekend. Davis is starting off this year how he finished last year. He has only caught eight passes through three games. Garrett Celek is expected to start in his place if he's ruled out.

Fantasy Analysis:

Davis hasn't been good this season after being a disaster last season. It's amazing to think he caught 13 TDs just two seasons ago and was considered an elite TE1. He is now declining and Colin Kaepernick is regressing. Hopefully you weren't depending on Davis. If you were, there probably isn't much on your waiver wire. If you pick up Celek, there is no reason to believe he'll be any worse than Davis.

8.03 Draft Sharks - I'm relatively down on Davis this year and didn't think I'd end up with him on any of my teams. But as the 9th TE off the board? Sure, I'll take him.
