2013 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Aug-25-2013 by Ben Standig

Update (8-25): Those looking for a high-end TE2 should focus their attention right here. Davis' return from an Achilles injury has been a pleasantly productive one and without any signs of setback. Against Buffalo on Saturday, his lone catch was a 31-year grab that set Washington up inside the red zone, leading to a Pierre Garcon touchdown. He's seen limited snaps to this point, but the entire first-team offense left game 3 rather early. Considering the Redskins' weakness at WR2 and his own playmaking ability, Davis could easily be the team's top target after Garcon.

Preview - Davis entered the 2012 season with significant momentum thanks to a breakout campaign the year before. He left it with a shredded Achilles in Week 7. That's the type of injury that historically takes a full year from which to recover, but Davis is expected for the start of Redskins training camp. What should fantasy owners expect out of the 6-foot-4, 247-pounder who went for 59-796-3 in 12 games during the 2011 season? That is a great question and for now one without a viable answer, though it is hard imagining Davis immediately returning to his downfield prowess. Though the Redskins drafted Jordan Reed to serve as a TE pass catcher, the starting role is Davis' (assuming he can answer the call). Considering the general weakness at the TE position, Davis is a sneaky fantasy play, but for now is simply a TE2, and a low-end one at that. Monitor his training camp progress. We certainly will, with great interest.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
10.10 FFToolbox - Jamie Blackburn - This pick makes me feel better about taking Finley earlier. TE-by-committee, so be it. I expect RG3 to lean on Davis a lot in the passing game, if he can stay healthy. I love "move TEs" who are used more like WRs in offenses and can get deep, and Fred Davis is good value here for that kind of player.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2

13.01 FFToolbox - Here's a guy coming back from serious injury who appears to be back to normal reading reports. If that's the case, what's not to like in the 13th round? He's done it before, he can do it again.
