Washington faces the Miami Dolphins in a Week 6 matchup of No. 1 pick contenders, and Washington could be getting back a useful pass catching option. Tight end Vernon Davis sat out Week 5 with a concussion, but was back at practice on Wednesday. He is listed as limited after sitting out all three practices last week.
Through the first four weeks, Davis had ten receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown. In his absence last week, Washington started Jeremy Sprinkle and Jerome Cunningham. Jordan Reed remains a DNP at practice.
Fantasy football analysis, Washington TE Vernon Davis
Davis has seen his numbers tumbling after a solid Week 1 in which he had 59 receiving yards and a touchdown. In the ensuing three weeks, his numbers are three receptions for 29 yards, two receptions for 30 yards, and one reception for five yards. He’s been targeted four times in each game.
Week 6 brings a bye for Darren Waller, Dawson Knox, Trey Burton, Jack Doyle, and Eric Ebron. If you have Waller and need a body, Davis is an adequate option. Washington faces the abysmal Miami Dolphins, who are giving up the sixth most fantasy points to tight ends.
