Steelers TE Vance McDonald (foot, questionable) took full practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 2. McDonald should play, but it would be better to see him with good usage in a game before deploying him as a fantasy starter.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Vance McDonald returned to action last week and caught three passes for 26 yards. He also ran 28 pass routes compared to 29 for Jesse James. James has posted some big numbers thus far but those could funnel more to the athletic McDonald. Tampa Bay has given up 20 TE catches in two games on 24 targets. McDonald should be picked up in deep leagues.
