Double digit TD's last year keep Davis a safe option for 2014.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Davis had a monster rebound season with 52 receptions for 850 yards and 13 receiving touchdowns. He has a great chemistry with QB Colin Kaepernick and with Davis being only 30 years old, he should have a few more monster seasons in him.
 
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Despite his vast ability, 49ers' offense has a way of making him vanish at times.
Productive for years, but he looks slower now and is Ravens' No. 2 TE.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
No change in talent, and the 49ers are suggesting they'll pass more, but, with a presumed upgrade in receiving corps (healthy Crabtree, for one) you'd have to assume his overall target load comes down on a team that didn't throw much at all in 2013
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Vernon Davis is always a top five threat and is his teams top vertical option due to the fact that he is faster than Crabtree, Boldin and Johnson, his teams top three wideouts.
Pitta will play the Daniels role in Kubiak's offense
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
It seems like Vernon Davis became lost in the 49ers offense throughout multiple games in the 2013 season. He only grabbed 52 passes on the season, but when he did get the ball, he made some major damage. With 850 yards and 13 scores with such a low reception total, there is major room for an explosion in his numbers as the 49ers focus more on the passing game in 2014.
The former Houston Texans tight end has resurfaced in Baltimore and will look to leave behind his injury woes. While Daniels has great talent and playmaking ability, he has been limited by his injuries year after year. He now finds himself as the second tight end for the Ravens. Ravens coach John Harbaugh sees Daniels as a difference-maker and has big plans for him in the offense. He is a low TE2 that could shoot up the board depending on his use.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Davis won't hit 13 TDs again now that Crabtree is back and Stevie is in town.
Aging and in decline, plus a ton of good TEs in Baltimore right now.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
With Michael Crabtree back Davis will have a lot of trouble living up to last season's stats. The 49ers want to run the ball and play good defense and that often leaved Davis the odd man out.
 
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
2 TDs in W1 gives him 15 in past 16 reg-season games
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Standout 2013 re-establishes himself as a top 5 TE option in fantasy.
 
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Are you YEARNIN’ for VERNON? VD-Boy molli-wopped his way thru 2013, grabbing 13 TDs and 850 Receiving Yards. Davis only went 4 Games last season without scoring a TD. The San Francisco Chronicle recently reported that since 2011, the 49ers have not ranked any higher than 31st in the NFL in Passing Attempts. Additionally, Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman expressed that they could stray away a bit from their ground-pounding roots. Davis caught 52 Receptions last year, which accounted for 21% of Colin Kaepernick‘s 243 Completions. The idea that Davis will repeat at 13 TDs is a pipe-dream. Add a healthy Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd into the mix and we see an obvious reduction in production. Follow the alliteration when thinking Davis in 2014. Yearnin’ for Vernon = Reduction in Production!
