No Welker and matchup begs for tons of scoring, so he's a lock for numbers.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Matchup is absolutely killer but Davis doesn't see a ton of targets in conservative Niners offense.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

The Colts were the 4th ranked fantasy tight end defense last year, but I think that flies out the window with the suspension of DE Robert Mathis. I really question if the Colts will be able to generate a pass rush and if they cannot, Manning can find any target.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

Dallas was the fourth worst fantasy tight end defense, so expect Vernon Davis to have a big game in the opener.

- Derek Lofland, Fantasy Football Maniax

 
Davis wasn't a high overall TE for us, but this week vs DAL you want him in your lineup.

With no Wes Welker, Thomas will have more chances to assert himself in the offense and build on the numbers he put up against the Colts last season (41 yards and a score).

- Tom Schriner, FFLockerRoom

Any offensive player against the very weak Dallas defense is a good play unless the defense proves otherwise.
