Vernon Davis catches two-of-four targets on Saturday

Vernon Davis was targeted four times in the first half against Green Bay on Saturday. He caught two passes for 49 yards, including a 43-yard gain on a scoring drive before the half.

Fantasy Impact

Davis has been the top option at the tight end position while fellow TE Jordan Reed has been recovering from an ailing foot. Davis would garner some fantasy consideration if Reed were to miss any regular season games, which his track record suggests is a distinct possibility.

Vernon Davis re-signs with Redskins

The Washington Redskins and tight end Vernon Davis agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth $15 million Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact

Davis, who rejuvenated his career last season with the Redskins, is back with the team on a three-year deal. Playing in all 16 games, he produced 44 receptions for 583 yards and two touchdowns, his best statistical season since 2013. Due to Jordan Reed's durability issues, Davis could once again become a key contributor to Washington's passing attack, especially if Kirk Cousins if under center in 2017.

Vernon Davis wants to re-sign with Redskins

Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis told the media he intends to re-sign with the Redskins this offseason, citing head coach Jay Gruden as a "big reason why" he wants to remain with the club.

Fantasy Impact

If Davis indeed re-signs with Washingon, it would be a positive for the club. Starting tight end Jordan Reed has major durability concerns, and Davis is a capable veteran backup who could step in fill the hole that Reed's absence would make. In 16 games last season, Davis compiled a 44-583-2 stat line, his best statistical year since 2014.

Vernon Davis hauls in two passes in season finale

Vernon Davis caught two passes for 49 yards on Sunday, including an impressive acrobatic toe-tapping catch along the sidelines.

Fantasy Impact

Davis showed that he can still make plays this season, as he caught 44 passes for 583 yards and two TDS for the year in a backup role. While his days of being a reliable fantasy option are likely over, it was an impressive rebound for Davis this year.

Vernon Davis disappoints in Week 16

Vernon Davis caught one pass for 13 yards on just two targets in a victory over Chicago on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

It was a surprisingly poor result given that fellow TE Jordan Reed was inactive for this gane. The Redskins TEs have seen a drop in production over the past couple weeks, a trend that has hurt any fantasy owner who has gambled with Davis in their lineups.
