After sitting out the 49ers' defeat to the Colts on Sunday due to a hamstring injury, Davis returned to team practice at a limited basis. Despite getting the extra week of rest, having a short week to prepare for the Rams does not aid Davis' chances to return to the playing field.
Fantasy Spin: With Colin Kaepernick struggling in the past two games, the 49ers camp would love to be able to get Davis back into action and give their franchise quarterback a trustworthy option. Davis has been targeted 14 times over his first two games, and if he is healthy enough to go on Thursday, he should be able to capitalize on a Rams defense that's allowed an average of seven targets and 67 yards to tight ends in the young season.
It remains a murky situation that needs to be monitored up until game time, but with the tight end position so unpredictable, Davis presents enough upside to be considered start-worthy this week if he is a full-go.
