Anquan Boldin excited for 49ers offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin said he's excited for the offense this year with Michael Crabtree coming back at 100 percent. Crabtree missed the first 11 games last year with an Achilles injury.

Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com that Colin Kaepernick now has all of his weapons back with Crabtree, Boldin and Vernon Davis. Quinton Patton is expected to take on a bigger role, and the 49ers have an excellent backfield with Frank Gore and the potential of second-year running back Marcus Lattimore, who is coming back from a devastating knee injury at South Carolina in 2012.

"It's going to be big," Boldin said of Crabtree being back. "It's going to be major for us. Toward the end of the season you were able to see a glimpse of what it's like to have me and him on the field at the same time, and then you have Vernon working out of the tight end position. And we have the young guy in Quinton Patton coming along. We were expecting him to play well. With all four of us on the field and Frank coming out of the backfield and getting Lattimore healthy, it's going to be tough. It's going to be a potent offense, and we're looking to make a run this year."


Vernon Davis confronts commissioner about health care


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, working with Monday Morning Quarterback, asked NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in a press conference why players are not offered lifetime health benefits considering the effects of head injuries, per the Boston Globe.

Goodell responded that the current benefits are the "best in the world."


Vernon Davis held in check by Seattle's secondary


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was not much of a factor in Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks in Seattle.

Davis was not able to overcome Seattle's physical play, and was held without a grab through the first three quarters. He caught a 5-yard pass in his team's first offensive series in the fourth quarter, and then came down with an 11-yard pass with under a minute remaining in the game. On the next play, Colin Kaepernick was picked off by Michael Smith with 22 seconds remaining.

Davis was limited to only two catches for 16 yards in a 23-17 defeat.

Will Seahawks' secondary get away with overly physical play?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Over the last four years, fewer penalties have been called during the playoffs than during the regular season, according to nflpenalties.com. This year's playoff games are averaging about two fewer penalties per game.

According to the Sacramento Bee, that raises the question: Will the Seahawks' secondary get away with crossing the line against 49ers receivers Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis?

Seattle led the league in pass interference penalties during the regular season. Cornerback Richard Sherman drew nine flags overall. 

"They're one of those teams that is willing to get a couple of (defensive holding, illegal contact or interference) penalties to be able to play the way they do," Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks told the New York Post. "Out of 60 snaps, they're willing to trade three or four (penalties). They just take their chances."

Seattle coach Pete Carroll was asked if his team might benefit from an official swallowing his whistle in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. "I don't know if it's going to be an advantage or not," he said. "It will be equal, I'm sure."


Vernon Davis makes most of one catch


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis made the most of his only catch against Carolina.

Davis' only reception of the game went for just 1 yard, but it was in the end zone. Davis made a great diving catch in the corner of the end zone, and just managed to drag his feet. The play was initially ruled a non-catch, but was overturned after the refs took a closer look. Davis was targeted four times. He'll look for more against Seattle next week.


Vernon Davis could exploit Panthers' weakness


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2014) The Panthers rank second in total defense (301.2) and points allowed (15.1), and their defense yielded only 21 touchdowns all year. But nine of those came on pass plays to tight ends. Carolina tied for the sixth-most receiving touchdowns allowed to the position.

49ers tight end Vernon Davis left the Week 10 loss to Carolina in the second quarter with a concussion. In the eight games since, he's scored seven touchdowns, including a 28-yarder down the seam in last week's playoff win in Green Bay.

Davis visits the Panthers in Sunday's divisional playoffs. 


Vernon Davis scores again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis caught a 28-yard touchdown in the playoff win at Green Bay, his seventh score in the last eight weeks. Davis finished with two catches for 37 yards despite being targeted seven times.

Davis had a couple chances for other big gainers, only to see Colin Kaepernick misfire.

Davis visits Carolina in next Sunday's divisional playoffs. He suffered a concussion in the Week 10 loss to the Panthers, finishing with a 2-yard catch.


Vernon Davis matches career high with touchdown No. 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis ended the regular season on a high note as he scored his 13th touchdown of the season in Week 17 at Arizona.

Davis hauled in a 3-yard touchdown pass from Colin Kaepernick with under a minute remaining in the opening quarter. He finished the game with three catches on five targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in a 23-20 victory.

Davis has a touchdown in six of his last seven games. He ended the regular season with 52 catches for 850 yards while matching a career high with 13 touchdowns. The 49ers will travel to Green Bay for a showdown against the Packers in the opening round of the playoffs.

Eye issue hampers Vernon Davis on Monday Night Football


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis left the game vs. Atlanta in the first half with an eye problem, and when he returned he never got untracked. Davis did not record a catch and was targeted only three times.

Early in the third quarter, Davis dropped a pass that would have gone for about 25 yards. Later, he failed to adjust to a pass mid-air, costing him a chance at a touchdown.

Davis should bounce back Week 17 at Arizona.


Vernon Davis in Week 16: A perfect storm


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) A perfect storm is brewing when it comes to 49ers tight end Vernon Davis. Not only is he red hot with touchdowns in five straight games, not only is he the clear No. 2 Fantasy tight end -- Jimmy Graham is in a different stratosphere -- but Davis gets to face a Falcons defense that can't stop tight ends.

Over the last four weeks, tight ends are averaging 6.5 catches for 81.3 yards with four touchdowns vs. Atlanta. The Falcons give up the fourth-most Fantasy points (9.1 per game) to tight ends.

Davis just became the first tight end in NFL history to post a second season with 12 touchdown catches. He's one shy of the career high, set in 2009, and he's poised to surpass that, perhaps Monday night.

This is the kind of matchup Fantasy owners dream about, and it comes in Fantasy's Super Bowl. CBSSports.com senior Fantasy experts Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rate Davis the No. 1 tight end play this week.


Vernon Davis records 52nd career TD on 52-yard TD catch


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis recorded his 52nd career receiving touchdown on a 52-yard touchdown catch during a 33-14 win Week 15 at Tampa Bay. Davis led the 49ers with 79 receiving yards on five catches.

Davis came close to getting his 12th touchdown of the season midway through the second quarter, but quarterback Colin Kaepernick just missed connecting with Davis for a 46-yard touchdown as he led the veteran tight end a little too much with a pass.

No worries, however, as the duo would connect for a 52-yard touchdown on the next drive with 1:47 left in the second quarter. Kaepernick heaved a pass down the field after being flushed from the pocket and was able to get the pass to Davis in the end zone for the long score.

Davis, who was targeted seven times, needs just one more touchdown in the final two games to tie his career high, which he set in 2009. The 49ers are back in action Week 16 vs. Atlanta.


Will Vernon Davis extend touchdown streak Week 15?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis carries his four-game touchdown streak into Week 15 at Tampa Bay. If you take a look at Davis' stats this season, he's actually failed to score a touchdown in just three of 12 games, so the odds of him extending his scoring streak Sunday are favorable.

Tight ends haven't fared overly well against Tampa Bay. They have totaled just five touchdowns in 13 games and are averaging 7.5 Fantasy points per week. Tight ends are also averaging just 55.3 receiving yards, with Jimmy Graham being the only tight end to have surpassed 100 receiving yards against Tampa Bay. In fact, no tight end has reached double digits in Fantasy points in the last 11 games against the Bucs.

The numbers suggest Davis might not be in for the easiest matchup Week 15, but all you are really looking for is a touchdown and Davis has been very good at putting points on the board this season. You should continue to keep Davis active in all Fantasy formats.


Vernon Davis extends scoring streak to four games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis found the end zone for the fourth consecutive game during Sunday’s contest against the Seahawks in Week 14.

Davis hauled in an 8-yard touchdown pass from Colin Kaepernick with 10 second remaining in the opening half. He didn't make much noise outside of his touchdown grab, as he was limited to only two catches for 21 yards and a touchdown in a 19-17 victory. He was targeted three times.

Davis has combined for 14 receptions for 206 yards with four touchdowns over his last four games. He'll look to keep his streak alive in Week 15 against Tampa Bay.

Vernon Davis hoping to extend scoring streak


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis will look to extend his scoring streak to four games heading into Sunday's pivotal matchup at home against the Seahawks in Week 14.

In a Week 2 29-3 loss in Seattle, Davis suffered a hamstring injury and was limited to only three receptions for 20 yards. He has only four receptions over his last three meetings against Seattle.

Davis has four touchdowns over his last five games played and 16 catches for 239 yards over that span. Opposing tight ends have scored 7.00 Fantasy points per game this season. However, they have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends over the previous four games. All of our Fantasy experts have Davis ranked in the top 10 this week. Consider him a solid starting option in all formats.


Vernon Davis leaps over defender for TD in Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis continued his recent success as he extended his scoring streak to three games during Sunday’s win over the Rams in Week 13.
 
Davis caught a short pass from Colin Kaepernick and turned it up the field for a 17-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. He leaped over a defender before crossing the goal line. He caught four of the five passes thrown his way for 82 yards and a touchdown in a 23-13 victory.

Davis has four touchdowns over his last five games played. He will look to keep his streak alive at home against the Seahawks in Week 14. He caught three passes for 20 yards and suffered a hamstring injury his last time out against Seattle in Week 2.


Vernon Davis still a must-start option vs. stingy Rams


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis could take a step back at home against the Rams in Week 13.

Davis caught four of the seven passes thrown his way for 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Redskins. He has found the end zone in three of his last four games, racking up 157 yards over that span.

Davis will face a St. Louis defense that has allowed only two touchdowns to tight ends this season, including just once over the last seven weeks. Opposing tight ends have scored 5.64 Fantasy points per game against tight ends.

At this point, Davis has been way too productive for you to keep him on the bench. He's averaged 20.4 yards per catch at home, compared to his road average of 12.8 yards per catch. He also has five of his nine touchdowns at home. Our Fantasy experts all have him as a Top 5 tight end this week, so consider him a must-start option against the Rams.

Vernon Davis comes up big against hometown team


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, a D.C. native, came up big in his hometown as he found the end zone during Monday’s win over the Redskins in Week 12.

Davis came down with a 40-yard connection from Colin Kaepernick on the first play of the second quarter, which led to a field goal. Davis caught a short pass, and while struggling to fight for extra yards, coughed it up to the Redskins in the third quarter. He bounced back with a wide open 1-yard touchdown reception late in the third quarter. He caught four of the seven passes thrown his way for 70 yards and a touchdown in a 27-6 victory.

Davis has found the end zone in three of his last four games. He'll look to keep scoring at home in Week 13 against St. Louis.

Vernon Davis ready to rock Redskins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) San Francisco's Vernon Davis ranks third among tight ends with eight touchdown catches, despite injuries that caused him to miss one game and parts of two others.

He's the top threat in a struggling passing game. "Vernon changes defenses," quarterback Colin Kaepernick told the San Francisco Chronicle. "He makes them do things that they don't normally do." The 49ers have had 18 full drives without Davis, according to the paper. They've punted 11 times, turned it over six times and scored one touchdown.

Fortunately, Davis made it through Week 11 at New Orleans with no effects from his Week 10 concussion. He'll face a Redskins defense giving up the seventh-most Fantasy points to tight ends, 9.2 per game. Washington has allowed seven touchdowns to tight ends, tied for fourth most.

Start Davis as a top-5 option Monday night.
