Vernon Davis reported to 49ers camp

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

Tight end Vernon Davis, who did not take part in the 49ers' offseason program due to dissatisfaction over his contract status, reported to training camp Wednesday morning.

Fantasy Impact: 

This doesn't mean that Davis is happy with his contract, but he realizes that the team isn't inclined to negotiate with a player who isn't practicing. We're avoiding Davis at his ADP due to his probable workload with Michael Crabtree back in the fold. Davis averaged 3.8-62-.90 on 6.1 targets without Crabtree in the lineup. After his return (and including three playoff games), those numbers fell to 2.4-35-.75 on 4.6 T/G. Those are still top 10 numbers at the position (thanks to the touchdowns), but Davis simply isn’t a no-brainer top 5 pick with Crabtree in the lineup. He has a history of being underutilized in the 49ers’ run-heavy offense, and that’s a possibility again in 2014.
