This news does not come as much of a surprise in context with Davis' participation in practice this week, as the fleet-footed tight end got in limited sessions all three days. It's an encouraging response after Davis left last week's game due to a concussion and logged just one catch for two yards before his exit.
Fantasy Spin: Although the New Orleans Saints have boasted one of the leagues most improved pass defenses this season, Davis has a plus matchup in a game that could become a shootout. He is a clear mismatch versus Roman Harper and a secondary that will be without impact rookie Kenny Vaccaro.
Davis' concussion looks to be in the past, and fantasy owners should feel good about plugging the Pro-Bowl tight end in their lineups during a game where the 49ers' offense will certainly need all hands on deck. Due to the tight end position being one that is devoid of any consistency, Davis makes for a top-five play.
