Rams TE Jared Cook (back) did not practice Wednesday. Lance Kendricks would be a Sneaky Start if Cook can’t play.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) took limited practice reps Thursday. Davis may be able to play, but the Monday night kickoff makes for a dicey situation for fantasy owners. Jared Cook would be a quality Plan B. Even Lance Kendricks would work as a (uninspiring) fallback option.

At receiver, the Rams listed starters are Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin. Brian Quick is listed behind Britt but it's safe to expect that duo to be on the field together regularly with Austin in the slot. The Rams also list two starters at tight end with Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks on the top line.

Fantasy Impact:

Britt, Quick and Austin have all been available in the later rounds due to the uncertainty of how targets and snaps will be distributed. This is not going to be a great pass offense, but Shaun Hill is capable and at least one of these receivers will be fantasy relevant in 2014.

Sam Bradford sharp in comeback

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

Returning from an offseason of rehabbing a torn left ACL, Rams quarterback Sam Bradford made his preseason debut Saturday afternoon at Edward Jones Dome against the Packers.

Notably taking his first in-game snap in exactly 300 days, Bradford piloted two drives, one in which was capped by a 11-yard strike in traffic to tight end Lance Kendricks for a score.

Bradford’s second series began when he stood tall in the pocket and rifled a pass for a 41-yard, catch-and-run completion to wide receiver Brian Quick.

Later in the drive, rookie offensive tackle Greg Robinson was outmuscled by a Julius Peppers’ bull rush move. Peppers drilled Bradford’s backside, but the fifth-year quarterback popped right up.

Sporting a clunky left knee brace, Bradford showed comfort operating in the pocket. He finished completing 9 of 12 passes for 101 yards.

Fantasy Impact:

The article called Bradford 'sharp' and said it was an encouraging sign for him heading into next week's game. Looks like it's all systems go for Bradford to start Week 1 for the Rams. He's ranked 25th and likely won't get drafted but could prove to be a nice committee QB if he continues to look good in his return.

Rams TE Lance Kendricks could miss a couple of preseason games, meaning it may be three weeks or so before he’s on the field.

Fantasy Impact:

This gives Jared Cook an opportunity to get as many reps as he can handle.

Vernon Davis won't morph into a full-time wideout

Monday, July 1, 2013, 10:25am

National Football Post - [Full Article]

There’s no doubt that San Francisco coaches are concerned about the absence of wide receiver Michael Crabtree (Achilles) from the passing game. But the suggestion that the 49ers are considering moving Vernon Davis full-time to wide receiver, based on his extensive “reps” at the position in recent sessions, are overblown, the 49ers tell NFP. There are some new wrinkles planned for Davis, who can stretch the field like few tight ends and who possesses unique abilities, but he won’t morph into a full-time wideout. The coaches note that, while it took Colin Kaepernick a while to develop the same chemistry that Alex Smith had with the tight end – Davis had 29 receptions (and 41 targets) in the nine games Smith started and just a dozen receptions (and 20 targets) in Kaepernick’s seven regular-season starts – the two hooked up 11 times in San Francisco’s final two playoff games. Although the Kaepernick-Davis tandem connected only six times in the last six regular-season outings, Davis was targeted 14 times in the NFC championship game and the Super Bowl. And he had over 100 yards in both those contests.

Fantasy Impact:

Still, it's nice to hear that the team has installed new "wrinkles" for Davis. The article is right about his strong finish. His 3.8 targets per game during the regular season ranked 29th in the league below guys like Anthony Fasano, Rob Housler and Lance Kendricks. Davis was 9th in that category in 2010 and 10th in 2011, so the 49ers should get Davis more involved in 2013. He followed up a 6-106-1 line against the Falcons in the NFC Championship Game with 8-104 in the Super Bowl. When he saw 6+ targets in 2012, he averaged 5.3-88-.83. Those are Gronk-type numbers.
