|Davis had a sleepy 2011 campaign before turning into an absolute beast in the playoffs and nearly helping the 49ers reach the Super Bowl. After a modest regular season with 67 receptions for 792 yards and six touchdowns that saw him finish as the 8th ranked fantasy tight end, Davis turned in a pair of dominant performances against the Saints and Giants in the playoffs, catching 10 passes for 292 yards and four touchdowns. Which Davis will fantasy owners get in 2012? While Davis is easily the most talented 49ers receiving option and capable of topping 1,000 yards and hitting double digit touchdowns, the team’s conservative offensive approach under head coach Jim Harbaugh make that unlikely to happen. Of course, Davis could turn in a solid year given that this is his second year in Harbaugh’s offensive system. It is also possible that Davis will be overvalued on draft day based on his wonderful playoff performance. He rates as a mid-tier fantasy tight end in 2012, one with a huge upside and little risk.

Concussion will keep target monster from playing against Lions
|Master Tesfatsian (@MasterTes) on Twitter: "TE Jordan Reed will be out vs. the Lions with a concussion #Redskins" (Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Master is a trusted source for the Washington Post and it looks like Reed is a scratch for this week. TE Vernon Davis and WR Pierre Garcon will likely pick up more targets.

Status for Week 6 and beyond up in the air

FF Today's Take: It's a major blow to the Washington offense and obviously a concern for Reed's long-term health, as he has sustained at least six documented concussions since his college days. For fantasy purposes, he should be considered a long shot for this week and highly questionable for the next 2-3 weeks. Vernon Davis appears to be the most likely replacement for him, but Reed's absence should to more targets for DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder.

Missed practice Wednesday
|Jordan Reed's promising season has taken an ominous turn.
The Redskins tight end is being evaluated for a concussion after experiencing symptoms during Tuesday's workout, per the team's official Twitter account. Reed missed Wednesday's practice and looms as a question mark for Sunday's showdown with the Eagles. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Reed has a long history with concussions, suffering five from 2011 to 2015. If Reed is unable to play, Vernon Davis would take his starting spot in the lineup.
