San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is about to find out if the Arizona Cardinals will be the next team to shift plenty of defensive attention his way. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman says (via The Sacramento Bee) three opponents this year have taken "drastic measures" to take Davis out of the offense.
Roman said the Jets, Giants and Seahawks were determined to minimize Davis, who caught a combined five passes for 65 yards in those games. Davis was held without a catch by Seattle in Week 7. The 49ers face Arizona on Monday night.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners likely aren't thrilled with how things have gone for Davis in recent weeks but he's too talented to take out of the lineup. He hasn't caught a a touchdown pass since Week 3 but it's hard to imagine him going without a catch again this week.
Davis remains a must-start fantasy tight end in most formats.
