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 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at San Francisco 49ers
One player who didn't get hurt by Ben Roethlisberger getting hurt was Vance McDonald, who caught both of his touchdown passes last week from Mason Rudolph. McDonald finished with seven receptions -- on seven targets -- for 38 yards and the two scores. Look for more passes to the tight end to help Rudolph stay settled in. He remains a nice low-end TE1 play.
