Fantasy Impact: Davis once again showed why he's a top 6 TE. It was great to see him get as many targets as he got in only 23 pass attempts. Lots had been made about his decrease in production with Crabtree in the lineup, but he proved how explosive he was on Sunday and should continue to produce well all year.

This comes straight from the horse's mouth. Coach Harbaugh himself said, "Vernon Davis is quietly having a great camp." This is great news considering that just a few weeks ago Vernon was holding out of voluntary workouts, in search of a new contract. (Source: 49ers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Vernon is a top 5 TE, and is someone to target in the mid rounds. He doesn't get the targets like some of the top tier tight ends, but will still put up TE1 numbers, especially in standard leagues.

Despite missing all of mini-camp, and threats of an extended hold out, Niners TE Vernon Davis reported to practice with the rest of his teammates as scheduled. Said Davis, "It was a very easy decision. All you have to do is think about the team” The star Tight End has 2 years remaining on his current contract. (Source: Yahoo!)

Fantasy Impact: Vernon Davis and Niners QB Colin Kaepernick had excellent chemistry last year, with Davis snagging 57 catches for 850 yards and 12 touchdowns, making him the second best fantasy TE of 2013. With the return of a healthy Michael Crabtree, the additions of Stevie Johnson, Brandon Lloyd, and Anquan Boldin, as well as rookie 4th Round pick Bruce Ellington, Colin Kaepernick should be expected to spread the ball around much more this year. While we expect Davis’ numbers to decrease quite a bit compared to 2013, you should still expect the big red zone target to perform as a top 5 TE in 2014.

Fantasy Impact: This is great news, Davis needs all the practice time he can get with Kaepernick and the new pieces of the offense acquired in the off season. Davis and Kaepernick still have less than 2 full years together so their rapport can still greatly improve. Hopefully by Davis being at camp we'll also have a much better idea of his role in this year's offense before fantasy drafts.

While he may not get many catches, Davis does make the catches he gets count. He snagged four passes on six targets for 44 yards with a two scores. I believe that he is the best red zone threat that the 49ers have and will hit paydirt again this week.

Davis showed why he has TE1 upside last week, scoring a couple touchdowns. He stays on the TE1 chart playing the Bears this week; the Bears played a team last week that does not utilize the tight end position.

Whether or not 49ers tight end Vernon Davis would report to training camp on time was anyone's guess considering some inconsistencies between his comments and actions earlier this offseason. After skipping all OTAs and the team's mandatory minicamp last month, Davis has reported to training camp on time (via teammate C.J. Spillman's Instagram account). Last season, Davis had 52 catches for 850 ...
