Vernon Davis TE SF Feb 04 '13
Vernon Davis caught six passes for 104 yards in the 49ers' Super Bowl 47 loss to the Ravens.
On the first play from scrimmage, Davis had a 20-yard deep ball called back due to his own illegal formation penalty. He proceeded to shred Bernard Pollard and Ray Lewis in coverage for first-half gains of 24, 29, and 11, although San Francisco could not capitalize due to turnovers and drive stalls. The one that really got away was a go route down the right sideline in the fourth quarter. Davis had two steps on Ravens LCB Corey Graham, but Colin Kaepernick's well-placed pass glanced off the tight end's fingertips. After a 2012-2013 season filled with wild ups and downs -- and mostly downs -- Davis will be a difficult player to rank for 2013 fantasy drafts. We will likely take an optimistic approach.
