Draft note
by John Paulsen
McDonald is capable of expanding his role in the Pittsburgh passing offense. He caught a solid 50 balls (on 73 targets) for 610 yards and four touchdowns, and he even missed Week 1. He finished as the No. 10 tight end in PPR formats and should see a significant increase in playing time now that Jesse James is out of the way. McDonald played on 55% of the snaps last season while James played 50%, so unless the Steelers decide to directly replace James with another player, McDonald’s playing time should surpass 70%. If he stays healthy and plays starter’s snaps, he’ll finish in the top 10 and has upside from there.

PIT TE Vance McDonald - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Vance McDonald had just one reception last week, but it went for a 49-yard gain. He also was targeted in the end zone with another pass, so it could have been a pretty productive week. Now, he faces a Cincinnati defense that has given up 10 TD catches to the tight end position this season. And he had seven receptions for 68 yards in their earlier meeting. McDonald should be a borderline TE1 play this week.
