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 11 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Vance McDonald caught four passes for 44 yards and his second touchdown of the season last week and now gets to see a team he torched for 10 receptions for 112 yards on 16 targets in the playoffs last season. He might not get quite that many targets, but the Jaguars have had issues covering tight ends in the red zone, allowing six TDs to the position this season. Five of those have come in their past two games, so opponents might be on to something. McDonald is a sneaky start once again in DFS.
