|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.
| Jordan Reed out with shoulder injury -- Sat Dec 24 8:15 am --|
Vernon Davis expected to start
|Washington TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) is out today vs Chicago, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Kirk Cousins will be without his best weapon on Saturday against the Bears. Reed has played the last couple weeks but has been limited an ineffective. with Reed out, Vernon Davis will get the start and is a viable punt TE play.
| No more clarity regarding Jordan Reed's status -- Thu Dec 22 6:55 pm --|
No practice Thursday
|HC Jay Gruden didn’t commit one way or the other when asked about Jordan Reed.
“He didn’t do much today, obviously. Did not participate today,” Gruden said. “So, I really don’t have anything to compare it to. Obviously, (the shoulder) still bothering him a little bit, and we’ll have to gauge it tomorrow before we leave.” (The Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Owners should plan on being without Reed again, as he clearly wasn't right in Week 15 before getting ejected on Monday night and will only have four full days of rest before facing the Chicago Bears on Saturday. Vernon Davis is probably the best replacement option owners have in most leagues, but it should be noted Chicago has been among the stingiest defenses against tight ends this season.
| Jordan Reed eyeing Week 14 return -- Thu Dec 8 8:25 pm --|
Injured shoulder feeling better
|Jordan Reed believes he'll play Sunday. Feels he's gotten all of his range of motion back. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Don't go dropping Vernon Davis or any of your other tight end options quite yet. A Grade 3 AC joint separation is a "complete separation of the joint" and "both sets of ligaments in the shoulder are torn as well as the capsule that surrounds the joint", so it is highly unlikely Reed has his range of motion back. Consider him a high-risk option with a poor matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14.
| Jordan Reed ruled out -- Fri Dec 2 1:15 pm --|
|Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. Arizona because of a shoulder injury. Defensive end Anthony Lanier also is out coach Jay Gruden said. (http://www.espn.com/nfl/team/_/n)|
FF Today's Take: Reed is dealing with a serious shoulder injury that could keep him out multiple weeks so it's no surprise he'll miss Week 13. Vernon Davis will get the start and be a viable TE option however, the Cardinals have given up the fewest fantasy points to the tight end position making Davis more of a TE2.
