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 tight end ends offseason holdout
Tight end Vernon Davis ended his offseason holdout and reported to 49ers training camp on time Wednesday. Davis skipped June's mandatory minicamp and earlier offseason workouts in hopes of a better contract. His deal expires after the 2015 season.(San Jose Mercury News)
FF Today's Take:Davis' "holdout" was flimsy from the beginning given that fact that he would incur $30K in daily fines for every day missed and he had no leverage. Davis is currently under contract through 2015. He remains a mid-range TE1.
