Kaepernick treated Vernon Davis like a 2nd String TE when he first became the starter. Vernon never had an outstanding fantasy day as a duo, he close to waiveable. But then the playoffs happened, and Colin finally figuered out Vern is a BEAST. With Delanie Walker gone, Michael Crabtree out for the season, <nobr><a href="#" class="FAtxtL" id="FALINK_1_0_0">Frank Gore</a></nobr> a step slower. Look for Vern to continue his postseason momentum into 2013.
Owen is perfect for the play-action game the Texans are known for. With Casey in Philly this season, that is one less TE that can steal numbers from Daniels. Garrett Graham is a minor threat, but this season we should see Owen return to his ELITE form.

Big boost with Crabtree on the mend
Always solid, but how does arrival of Hopkins affect his targets?

Legion Report
With the loss of Michael Crabtree in San Fran, for Kaepernick to continue his run of success, he will need to utilize every weapon he has. That means that Davis’ numbers of 548 yards, 41 receptions and 5 TDs in 2012 will see a spike. SF has lined up Davis all over the place and besides Anquan Boldin, Davis will be one of the main sources of firepower for this offense. Upside … Yep.
Daniels finished 2012 with 716 yards and 6 TDs, which is what it is. Daniels should again hit somewhere between 600-700 yards and 4-6 TDs.

Pack isn't great against TE so Davis could go off as top-2 receiver for 49ers.
Daniels would benefit from Hopkins' absence (head), but probably is still barely a top-15 guy, either way.

He was as volatile as any player in the league last year, but with Crabtree hurt and Boldin being their only proven target in the passing game, I can't see how he disappears from their game plan this year.
The Chargers were 8th against fantasy tight ends last year, so I am not expecting a huge opener out of Daniels.
