Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 17 vs NYG (3 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis had two catches against the Giants and one of them went for nineteen yards. It was an impressive catch but he struggled to be a factor in this game. Vernon has been great with chunk plays on the year but his consistency as a steady target has been questionable. The offense was extremely conservative in this game and that also attributed to his minimized role on the day. Vernon's ability to attack the seams with his speed is valuable but Kirk isn't always able to find him playing behind a battered offensive line.
2017 Week 16 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 42 / 1 rec)
Vernon Davis only had two receptions but had one of the three touchdowns on the day. Vernon out ran the linebacker up the seam to score a touchdown on a blitz. He should have had two touchdowns on the day but Kirk overthrew him in the end zone. Vernon has been a big play guy all year and his touchdown shows that Kirk looks for him in big play moments. Kirk does a better job finding guys on intermediate routes over the middle which is where Vernon does most of his damage.
2017 Week 15 vs ARI (4 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis wasn't able to get going in this game as he only had two catches for less than twenty yards. The Cardinals paid close attention to Vernon as he has been a steady contributor all year. The offense couldn't get in a rhythm and that ultimately minimized Vernon's opportunities to contribute.
2017 Week 14 vs LAC (7 / 2 / 26 / 1 rec)
Vernon Davis was the most productive pass catcher in this game as he scored the lone touchdown. Kirk barely overthrew him for a second touchdown as he split two defenders down the seam. Vernon only had two catches but he could have had a bigger day if the offense could establish some continuity.
2017 Week 13 vs DAL (2 / 2 / 15 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis tallied two catches for fifteen yards in this game. He was basically non-existent as the Dallas linebacker core held him in check. The offense was stuck in neutral all night and made it difficult to get in a rhythm with the passing game. Vernon hasn't been getting the splash plays for big gains the last couple weeks and has left him with very pedestrian numbers.
2017 Week 12 vs NYG (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis was completely shut out of this game. He had no receptions, but was targeted twice. This was high unusual considering how involved he has been over the last month. The Giants are also vulnerable to tight end production so the was seemingly a good matchup for Vernon. It appears the Giants gave him extra attention in certain situations but he wasn't always double teamed or taken out of the play. Jamison's big day influenced Vernon's production as well. He should bounce back next week to being a down the seam weapon in the Washington pass attack.
2017 Week 11 vs NO (6 / 3 / 67 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis wasn't as big a factor in today's game. He had three catches, but he made the most of them as his longest reception went for thirty-six yards. Kirk targeted Vernon three times in the second half but couldn't connect. He had sixty-seven yards on just three receptions showing that he can still be a game breaker when given opportunities.
2017 Week 10 vs MIN (11 / 7 / 76 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis led the team in receptions and was very active against the Vikings. Considering how productive he has been over the past month, today was even more impressive. He was often an outlet for Kirk while facing immense pressure at times. This game had a pass heavy script so Vernon's reception total is a season high for him. He didn't have one of his typical long receptions in this game, as the Vikings kept him in check. Vernon has been a terrific fill in for Jordan throughout his injury riddled year. However, the 'spread it around' nature of the Washington offense makes his productions somewhat unpredictable on a weekly basis.
2017 Week 9 vs SEA (9 / 6 / 72 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis was very involved in this game with Jordan Reed out due to injury. Vernon got off to a quick start finding openings over the middle and taking advantage of matchups. He beat linebackers on three separate occasions to get open before they started to bracket him in coverage. Vernon lead Washington in receptions and yardage today. He totaled six receptions with four coming before halftime. As the pressure ramped up it was tough for Kirk to find Vernon, therefore he went quiet in the second half. Vernon has been the most productive receiving option for Washington over the last three weeks.
2017 Week 8 vs DAL (4 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis was forced into a full-time role but it didn't pay off much. He has been excelling as the secondary tight end but it will be interesting to see if he can flourish as the number one guy. He only tallied twenty yards on two catches but he was targeted four times.
2017 Week 7 vs PHI (4 / 4 / 67 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis has steadily been productive for Washington as the backup tight end. He caught a seam route pass for thirty yards to start the game much like his first reception last week. His speed up the seam has been something Washington has clearly tried to take advantage of in the past few weeks. He also had four catches which shows that they want to keep him involved. Vernon is making the most of his opportunities and his speed allows him to maximize on every opportunity.
2017 Week 6 vs SF (4 / 3 / 65 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis continues to make his routine splash play each game. This time Kirk was able to find him on a fifty-one yard pass where Vernon did most of the damage after the catch. He still has the speed to take advantage of linebackers and safeties and he did that against the 49ers. Vernon did have a crucial fumble in the third quarter that continued the momentum shift in this game. However, with under seven minutes to go in the fourth quarter Vernon took off right up the seam on a skinny post to come up with the longest pass play of the game. He only had three catches but his explosive ability down field helps him maximize his opportunities.
2017 Week 4 vs KC (3 / 2 / 89 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis only had two catches but he had a spectacular sixty-nine yard run. He nearly scored after catching a pass up the seam and eluding several defenders to gain additional yardage. Vernon can make explosive plays because of his speed and potential mismatch opportunities. However, there are simply too many mouths to feed in order for him to produce weekly.
2017 Week 3 vs OAK (5 / 5 / 58 / 1 rec)
Vernon Davis filled in admirably for Jordan Reed as he hauled in five catches and a touchdown. He clearly still has gas in the tank as he looked like a mismatch for the Raiders safety. His speed downfield was problematic for the Raiders defense as he beat two defenders on a seam route to score his touchdown. Vernon's burst off the line was notable as well with his ability to get open in the short passing game. He was needed in this game and Kirk was able to rely on him with Jordan out.
2017 Week 2 vs LAR (1 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Vernon Davis was nonexistent today as he only recorded one catch for thirteen yards. Washington had a conservative game plan so in those cases he will be one of the guys that suffer. However, if Jordan is out next week he could become more involved.
