San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis looks like he's going to play in Thursday night's game against the St. Louis Rams. Davis answered with a simple "oh yeah" when asked by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport if he will be active
Davis suffered a hamstring injury in Week 2's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He was held out on Sunday and got a week of limited practices in. The 49ers offense struggled without Davis, losing to the Indianapolis Colts, 27-7, and falling to 1-2 on the year. Davis has nine catches for 118 yards and two touchdowns this season.
Fantasy impact: Davis will be less than 100 percent and might be on a snap count, but Colin Kaepernick will be happy to have his top pass-catching target back. Davis is back on the fantasy radar and will be a solid TE1 play against a Rams defense that was carved up by the Dallas Cowboys. The 49ers offense has failed to get any production out of their wide receivers, making Davis a heavy favorite to lead the team in targets.
