Davis has only missed one game in the last six seasons, but Davis always seems to be on the injury report. He turned 30 years old in the offseason and the tight end will likely miss at least one game in 2014.

San Francisco has an array of veteran wideouts and the number of pass catchers will keep Davis from posting any 80-catch seasons anytime soon. However, he should still finish with over 60 grabs this season.

Davis has caught double-digit touchdowns in two of the past five seasons. However, the team has once again brought in more talent to compete with Davis, and the crowded depth chart should keep him from reaching double-digit touchdowns this fantasy season.
