San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald's (knee) MRI and X-ray results on his right knee came back negative Tuesday, Sept. 16, and he said the injury is just a day-to-day thing.
Fantasy Tip: McDonald doesn't normally have much fantasy value, but with Vernon Davis' status in doubt as he nurses a sore ankle, McDonald could be in line for an increased role if he is able to play in Week 3 and Davis sits. McDonald's $3,700 salary (7.4% of cap) is the minimum for the tight end position at FantasyScore so taking a flier on him would open up plenty of cap room to use elsewhere.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald is expected to see more opportunities in the passing game this year after a great showing in the blocking game in his rookie season, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. Roman likes the fact that McDonald has plenty of experience now as a versatile tight end.
Fantasy Tip: As long as Vernon Davis is in the picture in SF, McDonald will likely be reduced to an inferior role in the passing game. You can find better options as your backup TE.
