|Draft: 2006 Round 1 (6)
Ht: 6’3” Wt: 250 DOB: 1984-01-31 Age: 31
|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.
|Vernon Davis will suit up for Broncos Sunday -- Fri Nov 6 10:00 pm --|
TE is still learning new playbook
|The newest Bronco will play Sunday, and likely go up against his brother.
Tight end Vernon Davis, who was acquired via trade, is still learning the Broncos' playbook but knows enough, Kubiak said, to warrant being active and getting time against the Colts. "I feel very good about the things that we've asked him to do this week," Kubiak said. "Hopefully he'll be a big part and help us out." Davis is the brother of Colts cornerback Vontae Davis.

FF Today's Take: Davis owners likely want to slot the former standout tight end into their lineups right away, but it might take the recently acquired veteran a couple games before he finally finds his footing with his new team.
|Vernon Davis traded to Broncos in draft pick deal -- Tue Nov 3 8:55 am --|
49ers acquire sixth-rounders in 2016 & 2017
|The Broncos acquired San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis on Monday, sending sixth-round picks (2016 & 2017) to the 49ers in return. Denver will also receive San Francisco's seventh-rounder in 2016. (Denver Post)|
FF Today's Take: It's unclear what Davis' role will be on a team that's so focused on running the ball and playing stifling defense, but it's obvious that Davis wasn't happy in San Fran. This essentially represents a salary dump for the struggling Niners, clearing the remaining $2.33 million on Davis' deal. The trading deadline is Tuesday at 2 p.m., and the Broncos have been linked to the Cleveland Browns, who are shopping left tackle Joe Thomas and center Alex Mack. If they bolster up that line and teams start becoming complacent against Peyton Manning, Davis might just become a viable TE in fantasy.

Late-round draft pick compensation
|Here we go: 49ers trading TE Vernon Davis to Denver for 6th- and 7th-round picks this year, and a 6th-round pick in 2017, sources tell ESPN. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Davis is probably happy to be out of the sorry offensive situation in San Francisco. This move represents a boost for his fantasy value and puts him in the low-end TE1 conversation on a weekly basis. Current Broncos TE Owen Daniels can be safely dropped from fantasy rosters.
| Vernon Davis ruled out Sunday -- Fri Oct 9 7:30 pm --|
49ers' TE to miss second straight game
|San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, despite practicing in a limited fashion all week long with a knee injury, has been ruled out of Sunday night's game at the New York Giants. Davis, in his 10th NFL season, sat out last week's game against the Green Bay Packers after suffering the injury the previous week at the Arizona Cardinals. He missed two games last season and one in 2013 but before then he had not missed a game since 2007. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Davis, like virtually every player on the 49ers' anemic offense, hasn't been a fantasy factor this year. With QB Colin Kaepernick struggling mightily of late, Davis is not even worth a bench spot at this point.
| Vernon Davis sustained knee injury in Week 3 -- Mon Sep 28 4:40 pm --|
Does not appear to be long-term issue
|Vernon Davis suffered a knee injury in the second half and left the game. He said it was not a long-term issue. Davis was targeted twice but finished without a catch. (Sacramento Bee)|
FF Today's Take: Davis was the target on the first of Colin Kaepernick's two pick-sixes as well as another interception that was overturned later in the game. Both throws were symbolic of the terrible throws Kaepernick made all game long. Davis is a high-end TE2 that could make for a serviceable bye-week replacement for owners of Rob Gronkowski or Delanie Walker next week versus Green Bay if he is able to suit up.
