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.
