2012 Highlight/Lowlight: Fred Davis started the 2012 season in a productive fashion with plenty of catches over the first seven games. Davis had a fantastic catch against the New Orleans Saints week 1 and things were looking up for the Redskins Tight End. However, Davis injured his ACL week 7 against the New York Giants and missed the rest of the season.

What is coming in 2013: Davis is expected to be ready for the beginning of the 2013 season and should be a valuable member of the Redskins potent offense. Davis will be an asset whether Robert Griffin III or Kirk Cousins is the starter week 1 and I predict he will have a career year in 2013. A healthy Fred Davis could be the solution to the health issues with the wide receivers and he certainly has the talent to have a 1,000 receiving yard year. His productivity could be lessened by rookie Tight End Jordan Reed and by 4th year Tight End Logan Paulsen. Reed is an unknown commodity, but he may cut into Davis’ playing time. Paulsen was a great fill in for Davis last season and made some crucial short catches during the Redskins 7-game winning streak. While Davis certainly has the talent to have a break out year, the depth at the Tight End position and his health could have an adverse impact on his numbers.
