Broncos TE Vernon Davis (concussion) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Raiders. He was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday. We’ll see if he can receive full clearance before kickoff, but Davis isn’t a TE1. His absence would make TE Owen Daniels a spot-start option.

Broncos TE Vernon Davis (concussion) returned to practice on Thursday.  That gives him a shot to receive full clearance ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders.  If he does, it'll be tough to trust him or TE Owen Daniels in fantasy lineups, despite the plus matchup.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears "it could be difficult" for Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) to play against the Chiefs today.  Sanders was at Saturday's walkthrough but is evidently well below 100%.  We won't find out his official status until 3 pm ET this afternoon.  Sanders will be a risky WR2 if active.  If not, WRs Bennie Fowler, Jordan Norwood and Cody Latimer could play bigger roles.  So could TEs Owen Daniels and Vernon Davis.

Broncos HC Gary Kubiak says TE Vernon Davis will see more playing time going forward, according to ESPN's Jeff Legwold. “Yeah, he’s definitely going to play more,” Kubiak said of Davis. “We got down and got into some hurry-up verbiage at the line of scrimmage. Those are the things that he wasn’t up with us on, so that’s why he kind of got the lost [snaps] there at times. He’s much more available this week from the standpoint of what he knows.” More playing time will, of course, increase Davis' chances to deliver fantasy value. But the Broncos aren't going to phase TE Owen Daniels out of their offense. This will remain a timeshare that will make fantasy numbers inconsistent -- at best -- for both players. Add on QB Peyton Manning's inconsistent passing, and you get an unattractive situation for fantasy football owners.

Broncos TE Vernon Davis will play against the Colts on Sunday, despite having just 3 practices to get comfy with the new offense and his new QB.  Insider Jeff Legwold confirms that Denver wants to get Davis involved right away and will use more 2-TE sets.  Look for him to play in obvious passing situations and in the red zone.  Davis is worth monitoring closely and should be owned in most fantasy leagues.  But we'd avoid using him in Week 9 fantasy lineups.

The Broncos have acquired TE Vernon Davis from the 49ers, according to multiple sources.  Draft picks are heading back to San Francisco in return.  The 31-year-old Davis is past his prime and has dealt with ankle, knee and back issues over the past couple of years.  But he's certainly an upgrade over TE Owen Daniels, who's averaged an abysmal 7.6 yards per catch this season.  Davis is getting his own upgrade from QB Colin Kaepernick to QB Peyton Manning.  He should eventually settle in as the #3 option in the passing game and could emerge as a spot-start option down the stretch.  Davis is worth grabbing if you don't have an every-week starter at TE.

49ers HC Jim Tomsula told reporters Monday that he's optimistic about TE Vernon Davis returning this week from his knee injury. “I think so,” the coach said, according to the team website. “I mean, we felt pretty good about him going through last week. We went out there on Friday, and it wasn’t where it needed to be. So he stayed back and had two days of treatment and the workouts with the strength and conditioning.” Davis missed the past 2 games. If he returns Sunday, he'll find a Ravens D that has allowed 3 of 5 opposing QBs so far to throw for 350+ yards.
