There aren't a lot of times when talented Pro Bowlers like Vernon Davis change teams -- but that's exactly what happened Monday, when the former No. 6 overall pick was traded to the Denver Broncos.
The two-time Pro Bowl selection hasn't made much of an impact yet this season but that has more to do with injuries and Colin Kaepernick than anything else.
And now that Davis is going to be catching passes from Peyton Manning for the rest of the season, he is, in my opinion, a viable starting Fantasy right end for the rest of the season.
In four full games this season, Davis has averaged nine fantasy points per game. Not great numbers by any means, but he did get more than 60 yards twice and 47 yards another time.
Those are numbers fantasy football owners can work with and with the talent that will surround Davis in Denver, there should be a lot of single coverage coming his way and that's a good thing for his fantasy production, especially with the way Manning likes to target tight ends.
There are very few elite tight ends out there and if you are hurting at the position, take a shot on Davis who is finally healthy and caught four passes Sunday in a loss to the Rams.
The former Terp is owned in just 15% of leagues on ESPN and few if any of the other tight ends available can offer top-10 upside, which Davis, if healthy, can. So pick him up and take a shot. Who knows the Vernon of old might suddnely appear, and if that happens, it would be a coup for the fantasy owners bold enough act quickly.
