49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) is active for tonight's game against the Rams.  He was limited in practice all week, and it's unclear if he'll play a full slate of snaps tonight.  But if your TE slot is still open, Davis is your best bet.  He scored in both games against St. Louis last year.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Rams.  He put in 3 limited practices this week but still isn't sure if he'll be able to play in prime time.  “I don't feel like I'm where I need to be at the moment, but I'm getting there," Davis said Saturday.  He added that he wants to make a decision on his status on Sunday, but we might not find out what that decision is until inactives are announced Monday night.  Davis should be on fantasy benches for now.  We'll see if we find anything out tomorrow morning.

49ers beat writer Matt Maiocco says TE Vernon Davis (back) is "on target" to return for Monday night's game against the Rams.  Davis put in his 2nd straight limited practice on Friday.  Assuming that back isn't an issue, he'll be a boom-or-bust fantasy option for Week 6.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) is inactive for today's game against the Chiefs.  No surprise after he was unable to practice this week.  There's no timetable for Davis' return.  TE Vance McDonald (knee) is active today and figures to share pass-catching duties with TE Derek Carrier.  Neither guy is a fantasy option.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, despite not practicing all week.  Note that Davis didn't practice at all ahead of Week 3, was listed as questionable and then didn't play.  Consider him a long shot to be active this weekend.  TE Vance McDonald (knee) is also questionable for Sunday's game.  Derek Carrier would serve as the lead TE if Davis and McDonald are out, but it's a situation to avoid in fantasy.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (back) did not practice on Wednesday.  We still haven't learned much about his injury.  But considering that it's a back and that he didn't return to last week's game, consider him less than 50-50 to play against the Chiefs this Sunday.

49ers TEs Vernon Davis (ankle) and Vance McDonald (knee) are inactive for today’s game against Arizona.  Derek Carrier, a 2012 undrafted free agent, will start for San Francisco.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that it's "doubtful" 49ers TE Vernon Davis (ankle) plays against the Cardinals today.  Davis is listed as questionable but didn't practice all week and was on crutches until Thursday.  With TE Vance McDonald (knee) also unlikely to play, Derek Carrier will serve as San Francisco's primary pass-catching TE.  He's just a desperation fantasy play.  Davis' absence figures to mean a few extra targets for WRs Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin.
