A perfect storm is brewing when it comes to
Over the last four weeks, tight ends are averaging 6.5 catches for 81.3 yards with four touchdowns vs. Atlanta. The Falcons give up the fourth-most Fantasy points (9.1 per game) to tight ends.
Davis just became the first tight end in NFL history to post a second season with 12 touchdown catches. He's one shy of the career high, set in 2009, and he's poised to surpass that, perhaps Monday night.
This is the kind of matchup Fantasy owners dream about, and it comes in Fantasy's Super Bowl. CBSSports.com senior Fantasy experts Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rate Davis the No. 1 tight end play this week.
Davis came close to getting his 12th touchdown of the season midway through the second quarter, but quarterback Colin Kaepernick just missed connecting with Davis for a 46-yard touchdown as he led the veteran tight end a little too much with a pass.
No worries, however, as the duo would connect for a 52-yard touchdown on the next drive with 1:47 left in the second quarter. Kaepernick heaved a pass down the field after being flushed from the pocket and was able to get the pass to Davis in the end zone for the long score.
Davis, who was targeted seven times, needs just one more touchdown in the final two games to tie his career high, which he set in 2009. The 49ers are back in action Week 16 vs. Atlanta.
Tight ends haven't fared overly well against Tampa Bay. They have totaled just five touchdowns in 13 games and are averaging 7.5 Fantasy points per week. Tight ends are also averaging just 55.3 receiving yards, with Jimmy Graham being the only tight end to have surpassed 100 receiving yards against Tampa Bay. In fact, no tight end has reached double digits in Fantasy points in the last 11 games against the Bucs.
The numbers suggest Davis might not be in for the easiest matchup Week 15, but all you are really looking for is a touchdown and Davis has been very good at putting points on the board this season. You should continue to keep Davis active in all Fantasy formats.
Davis hauled in an 8-yard touchdown pass from Colin Kaepernick with 10 second remaining in the opening half. He didn't make much noise outside of his touchdown grab, as he was limited to only two catches for 21 yards and a touchdown in a 19-17 victory. He was targeted three times.
Davis has combined for 14 receptions for 206 yards with four touchdowns over his last four games. He'll look to keep his streak alive in Week 15 against Tampa Bay.
In a Week 2 29-3 loss in Seattle, Davis suffered a hamstring injury and was limited to only three receptions for 20 yards. He has only four receptions over his last three meetings against Seattle.
Davis has four touchdowns over his last five games played and 16 catches for 239 yards over that span. Opposing tight ends have scored 7.00 Fantasy points per game this season. However, they have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends over the previous four games. All of our Fantasy experts have Davis ranked in the top 10 this week. Consider him a solid starting option in all formats.
