49ers' Vernon Davis Working With the Wide Receivers
Will this be the year that Vernon goes nuts? For the past 4 seasons Vernon has seen his receptions, yards and TDs all steadily drop. His performance in the playoffs however gives us a glimpse of the potential a Kaepernick-Davis connection may have. Davis had back-to-back 100 yard games against Atlanta and Baltimore with 1 TD, and we all know everything is bigger in the playoffs.
But with Crabtree out for most of the season, the pressure is going to be on Davis. It's crucial that he can continue the connection he had with Colin from last year's playoffs. Will he be able to break free from the likely constant double teams heading his way? Will the Niners put him in the slot so he can't get chipped as often by the opposing team's DL/OLB?
I don't think anyone doubts the sheer power and speed Davis possesses. I'm high on Davis this year and am going to try to draft him early in every fantasy football league I'm in. Colin's arm can make all the throws and I say Davis has the breakout year that we've been expecting for the last few seasons. What do you think?
