Redskins' Vernon Davis: Catches only target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis caught his only target for a nine-yard gain in Sunday's 24-6 win over the Cardinals

Davis actually led Washington tight ends with 47 snaps on offense (59 percent), but Jordan Reed parlayed 41 snaps into a 4-48-1 receiving line on five targets. Davis likely will focus on run blocking once again in a Week 2 matchup with Indianapolis.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Struggles early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis caught one of four targets for two yards in Friday's preseason game against Denver.

Davis accounted for half of Alex Smith's pass attempts, but it was far from a productive night. The 34-year-old tight end dropped a third-down pass on his first target and later came up one yard shy of the marker on a 4th-and-3. Davis is one of the better No. 2 tight ends in the league, but he's simply no match for Jordan Reed (toe) in terms of pass-catching skill. Reed was held out of Friday's game despite practicing for the past few weeks.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Sees improvement in Smith
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis said Alex Smith has improved since the two played together in San Francisco from 2006 to 2012, ESPN.com's John Keim reports.

It isn't exactly a bold assertion, considering Smith is coming off a 2017 campaign in which he established personal bests for passing yards (4,042), passing touchdowns (26) and yards per attempt (8.0), despite sitting out Week 17. While the 33-year-old quarterback likely will appreciate seeing a familiar face in his new locker room, the Redskins are hoping Davis merely will serve as their No. 2 tight end, with Jordan Reed expected to finish his rehab from toe surgery before the start of training camp. Of course, it's anyone's guess how long Reed will actually stay healthy, and Davis will have every chance to rebuild chemistry with Smith in the meantime. The 34-year-old tight end produced 9.9 yards per target in 2016 and 9.4 in 2017, but his volume typically remained modest even when Reed was unavailable.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Getting better with age
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis, who hauled in two of his three targets for 20 yards in Week 17's loss to the Giants, ended the season with 43 receptions for 648 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games.

When he joined the Redskins two years ago, Davis was an afterthought for many. However, the veteran tight end has found resurgence in Washington, posting 87 receptions for 1,231 yards and five touchdowns over the past two seasons. Davis turns 34 later this month, so retirement questions come with the territory, but there's a good chance he returns for another go around in 2018 given the three-year extension he inked with the team back in March. Davis was able to maintain fantasy relevance throughout the season with Jordan Reed sidelined for 10 games -- a trend that could continue next year given Reed's injury history.

Redskins' Vernon Davis: Collects third touchdown of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis caught two of three targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-11 win over the Broncos.

Davis has seen his production tail off since registering at least 55 receiving yards seven times in an eight-game stretch earlier this season, but Jordan Reed's (hamstring) presence on injured reserve leaves him as the clear top option at tight end in Washington. At a position with few standout performers, Davis has done enough to maintain a roster spot in most settings and has aided owners with touchdowns in two of the last three weeks. Davis could be an appealing target in both season-long matchups and DFS settings in Week 17 against a Giants team that has been burned by tight ends throughout the campaign and will be missing a key cog in the secondary in Landon Collins (forearm).
