2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Davis had a sleepy 2011 campaign before turning into an absolute beast in the playoffs and nearly helping the 49ers reach the Super Bowl. After a modest regular season with 67 receptions for 792 yards and six touchdowns that saw him finish as the 8th ranked fantasy tight end, Davis turned in a pair of dominant performances against the Saints and Giants in the playoffs, catching 10 passes for 292 yards and four touchdowns. Which Davis will fantasy owners get in 2012? While Davis is easily the most talented 49ers receiving option and capable of topping 1,000 yards and hitting double digit touchdowns, the team’s conservative offensive approach under head coach Jim Harbaugh make that unlikely to happen. Of course, Davis could turn in a solid year given that this is his second year in Harbaugh’s offensive system. It is also possible that Davis will be overvalued on draft day based on his wonderful playoff performance. He rates as a mid-tier fantasy tight end in 2012, one with a huge upside and little risk.

News From The Past 90 Days
Bounce-back season in store for Vernon Davis?     -- Mon Jun 15 5:30 pm --

Coming off career-worst season
Vernon Davis had the worst season of his career last year, one in which he missed two games due to injury and caught only two touchdown passes - both in Week 1. The downfield catches that had been the staple of his career all but vanished as well. After averaging more than 16 yards a catch in 2013, he averaged a career-low 9.4 yards per reception last year. "Whenever I'd run, like, my deep over routes there was a safety sitting over there already," Davis said. "It was just game planning and nothing really ever opened up. But I wasn't really ever a factor in the offense last year. ... The first game, yeah. But the second game, the tight ends (weren't) really involved as a whole." (Sacramento Bee)

FF Today's Take: Tony Sparano will be tasked with the job of getting more out of Davis & Co. this year. He fits the Niners' hopes for a stern, old-line position coach like Carolina assistant Pete Hoener, who coached the tight ends in San Francisco from 2005-10 and is the man Davis has long credited for shaping him into a well-rounded player, but their request to interview him was blocked. San Francisco's desire to go downfield more often this year should mean a bounce-back season for Davis, who could easily return to fantasy TE1 status.
