Redskins TE Fred Davis on track for training camp following torn Achilles

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis, who had his Achilles' tendon repaired in late October, told reporters during the team's OTA session on Thursday that he's "right on schedule" for a training camp return. "I feel good," Davis aid. "I'm running routes, making cuts, doing drills, running at my normal speed. I'm just working on more explosion. I feel like I'm at about 90-percent." Barring any setbacks, Davis said the goal is to participate during mandatory minicamp, which begins June 11. Regardless, he says he'll "definitely" be available when training camp starts July 25.

Fantasy Analysis:

Following an impressive 2011 season, Davis entered 2012 with significant promise for both the Redskins and fantasy owners. That sort of campaign never quite materialized. In seven games, he averaged a healthy 13.5 yards on 24 receptions, but did not find the end zone. Though Logan Paulsen is a decent fill-in and rookie Jordan Reed is an interesting pass catching option, the starting job is Davis', but let's see if he has the down field speed shown before the injury. Considering the relative weakness of the fantasy TE class, Davis returning to pre-injury form would be a significant development.
