|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.

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.

Does not appear to be long-term issue

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.
