Summary

Vernon Davis has generally been a top-tier fantasy tight end over the past five years. The exception came two years ago when was kept in to block a fair amount of the time. The 49ers drafted Vance McDonald last season to fill the blocking-TE duties, and Davis returned to fantasy stardom, catching 13 touchdowns for the second time in his career. Davis has a rare combination of size and speed -- indeed, he is faster in a straight line than most wide receivers. If Jimmy Graham is in his own tier, and Rob Gronkowski and Julius Thomas form the next tier, Vernon Davis is in the following group -- a solid fantasy TE1 with sky-high upside potential. (May 25)

Latest News

49ers | Vernon Davis reports (Wed Jul 23, 12:03 PM) - San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis has reported to camp Wednesday, July 23, according to an Instagram post from 49ers S C.J. Spillman.

Our View: So much for him holding out. Davis is already the 4th-highest paid tight end in the NFL in terms of annual average salary ($7.35 million). The 49ers were unlikely to get him a new deal, so holding out was fruitless.
