Vernon Davis' fantasy status stable despite missed practice

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Vernon Davis missed his second straight day of practice Thursday, but he should be fine for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis was held out of practice on Thursday. It's the second day he's missed practice as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Davis strained his hamstring during last week's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He's not expected to miss any game time, but the 49ers are letting him rest the hamstring this week. Davis should be good to go for Week 3's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy impact: Doesn't sound like anything serious, but hamstring injuries are notorious for flaring up at any time, so keep an eye on Sunday's inactive reports just in case. Davis was held to just three catches for 20 yards by a stout Seahawks defense, but he's in line for a nice rebound. He will remain a TE1 this week against a Colts defense that was burned by Charles Clay last week. Fantasy owners can start him with confidence.
