Vernon Davis injury update: fantasy value in risky territory with hamstring issue

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Vernon Davis is questionable for Sunday's game. We break down the fantasy implications.

49ers tight end Vernon Davis (hamstring) is listed as questionable to face the Colts on Sunday. He did not practice this week and will be a game-time decision.

He pulled his hammy in the second half of Sunday night's game in Seattle. It was a blowout and there was no need for him to return. Now his injury is a concern for fantasy owners.

The elite tight end exploded against the Packers in Week 1 with two scores, but was shut down by the tough Seahawks D last week.

Fantasy impact: Davis owners are in a tight spot. They 49ers play the late game, so it would be wise to get a backup plan. There has been nothing conclusive, so without Davis, there could me a lot of balls to go around. Anquan Boldin will be double-teamed throughout the game, so Kyle Williams and Vance McDonald could get some more looks.
