2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the most disappointing players in all of fantasy football over the past two seasons, Vernon Davis has all but fallen completely off of the radar for fantasy owners as we head into the 2015 season. Davis’ fall from grace was astronomical, as he caught half as many passes in 2014 as he did in 2013 and failed to even reach 250 yards on the season. Worst yet, though, was he tied a career low with just two touchdown receptions on the year. All this came just one year after a monster 2013 season which saw Davis make 52 catches for 850 yards and a whopping 13 touchdowns.

Even after this horrendous season, though, Davis remains a potential sleeper who could put up huge numbers and be a major difference-maker for fantasy owners. We’ve seen this before from Davis, who has had wild swings in production from year to year. This would be his greatest feat yet, but it’s definitely possible. The talent is still there. The entire San Francisco offense was horrendous this past season, so it wouldn’t be entirely crazy to throw 2014 out the window for Davis and instead consider the body of the work throughout his career. He’s had five 50-catch seasons and he’s been over 750 yards four different times. The big selling point with Davis, though, is he remains one of the absolute best red zone threats at the tight end position. Ten touchdowns is not out of the question, but five to eight scores seems to be most likely. He’s not Rob Gronkowski or Jimmy Graham, but few late-round flier tight ends will give you a higher ceiling than Davis.

News From The Past 90 Days
Bounce-back season in store for Vernon Davis?
Coming off career-worst season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jun 15, 5:30 pm

San Francisco
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)

FFToday'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.
