49ers TE Vernon Davis reported for the start of training camp.  He's looking for a new contract, and there were on-and-off rumors all offseason that he'd hold out of camp.  That's a non-issue now.  Davis remains an elite pass-catching TE, but we're not expecting him to match last year's big 52-850-13 line.

49ers TE Vernon Davis is skipping OTAs in search of a new contract.  He has 2 years remaining on his current deal.  Davis is coming off a monster 52-850-13 season.  But he turns 31 in January and is on the downside of his career.  There's little reason for the 'Niners to ink him to an extension.  We'll see if this holdout extends into training camp.  For now, we're not downgrading Davis' 2014 fantasy outlook.

49ers insider Matt Maiocco believes TE Vernon Davis (concussion) is "on pace" to play against the Saints on Sunday.  Davis went through his final concussion test on Friday afternoon.  We don't know the results, but HC Jim Harbaugh said, "it seems so" when asked if Davis was on track to play.  “It all depends on how I feel the next two days,” Davis said. “Up to this point, I’ve been fine. No complaints or worries.”  It's a tricky situation in fantasy because 49ers-Saints doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET.  But Davis' upside is worth waiting on unless you have another top 5 option.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (concussion) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Saints.  He practiced all week but was in a no-contact jersey.  He still has 1 more test to pass in order to play on Sunday.  We might not know his official status until inactives are announced around 3 pm ET on Sunday.  Fantasy owners hoping to use Davis need to have another late-game option lined up.  Charles Clay, Zach Miller and John Carlson are a few options.

49ers HC John Harbaugh announced that TE Vernon Davis has been cleared for "non-contact participation."  Harbaugh also noted that VD is not experiencing concussion symptoms.  It’s obviously excellent news, and it puts him on track to face the Saints this week.  We’ll monitor his practice progress throughout the week, but he’s tentatively expected to hit the field on Thursday.

49ers TE Vernon Davis told reporters on Tuesday that he's "feeling great" after suffering a concussion in last weekend's loss to the Panthers.  That's a good sign, but Davis' Week 11 status will ultimately come down to whether he can pass through the league's concussion protocol.  We'll update his status throughout the week.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (hamstring) is officially active for tonight's game against the Rams.  He practiced this week and passed his final test in pregame warmups.  Davis carries more risk than usual tonight but also carries plenty of upside against a Rams defense that gave up 91 yards and a score to Cowboys TEs Jason Witten and Gavin Escobar last week.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (hamstring) is a game-time decision for tonight's tilt with the Rams, according to insider Matt Maiocco.  He was in the same boat last week and ended up inactive.  Unlike last week, though, Davis was able to practice on a limited basis this week.  He'll be worth getting into fantasy lineups if he's active.  We'll have his official status around 7 pm ET tonight.

49ers TE Vernon Davis is officially questionable for Thursday night's trip to St. Louis because of his hamstring.  Davis did put in limited practices on Monday and Tuesday.  The team has yet to announce his participation level for Wednesday.  LB Patrick Willis is also listed as questionable with a groin injury that kept him out of practice Monday and Tuesday.  Willis appears unlikely to play, but the status shows he at least has a chance.  Plan as though you won't have Willis for your IDP squad this week.

49ers TE Vernon Davis (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.  He sounds confident that he'll be ready for this weekend's game against the Colts, though.  "No need to worry y'all," Davis tweeted. "My leg is feeling great just need a little rest til kickoff according to the docs."  Don't expect Davis to practice much, if at all, this week.  He'll likely end up questionable on the injury report and could be a game-time decision.  49ers-Colts doesn't kick off until 4:25 pm ET.  Owners hoping to start Davis can add backup TE Vance McDonald as insurance.  Other late-game options include Coby Fleener, Kellen Winslow and Zach Miller.
