Description: 49ers tight end Vernon Davis could be cut this offseason, according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.
Insight: After posting just 26 catches for 245 yards and two touchdowns, Davis does not warrant the $5 million he is owed next season. At 31-years-old, his best days are clearly behind him, but he still could help another team out.

Description: Remember when 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was one of the best fantasy tight ends in the league?
Insight: You should, it was just last season when he posted a 52-850-13 line. In 2014 he couldn't even catch the flu and finished with 26 receptions for 245 yards and just two touchdowns (both on opening day).

Description: 49ers tight end Vernon Davis didn't catch a pass Sunday against Seattle.
Insight: How can a player with his talent level be playing so poorly all season? Davis remains the biggest bust among tight ends in 2014 and shouldn't be started. Since a two-touchdown opening game, Davis hasn't cracked the five-point mark.

Description: 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was targeted five times Sunday, catching three of them.
Insight: Davis posted his first multi-catch game since Week 9. That's not saying much and he's still not fantasy worthy after a three-catch, 21-yard afternoon.

10/13/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is active for Monday night against the Rams.

Insight: Davis left Sunday's game against the Eagles with back spasms after he took a hit from inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans and didn't play in Week 5. He'll be a true game-time decision.

Insight: Davis was limited in practice again Friday, so he is officially listed as questionable. Coach Jim Harbaugh is hopeful Davis can play, but owners must have a backup plan, which will be difficult because the 49ers start at 4:25 PM EST.
 
9/21/2014 3:15:00 PM
Description: San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis (ankle) has officially been declared out today against Arizona.
