Steelers Beat: healthy TE Vance McDonald could make difference

Monday, July 9, 2018, 7:14pm

Tribune-Review - [Full Article]

"Can TE Vance McDonald untap his vast potential?" That was the question posed by Steelers beat writer Joe Rutter.

"The Steelers thought enough of McDonald to trade for him in the final week of the preseason last summer. Team officials believe a full season learning the Steelers system will benefit McDonald, who has never surpassed 30 catches or 391 receiving yards in five NFL seasons. Of course, he needs to stay healthy, which was a difficulty for McDonald in his first year with the Steelers. He also has been plagued by drops in his career," Rutter went on to answer.

Fantasy Impact:

James is entering the final season of his rookie contract, but don't forget, McDonald had the best game of his career in the divisional playoffs with a line of 10-112-0. The story said the Steelers think McDonald can be among the top tight ends if healthy. McDonald is our No. 20 ranked TE and is another late option in drafts.
