Draft note
by John Paulsen
McDonald is fully capable of expanding his role in the Pittsburgh passing offense to help offset the loss of Antonio Brown, who saw 168 targets last year. In his first season with the Steelers, he caught a solid 50 balls (on 73 targets) for 610 yards and four touchdowns, and he even missed a game (Week 1). He finished as the No. 10 tight end in PPR formats and should see an uptick in targets even if his snaps don’t spike. If he were more durable, he’d be my primary target at the position.

PIT TE Vance McDonald - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at New York Jets
Vance McDonald is on track to return this week after sitting out with a concussion last week. But he's not gotten enough work in the passing game to be much of a fantasy factor unless he scores. He shouldn't be in your lineup for a tough matchup against the Jets, who have been good against opposing tight ends.
