Steelers | Vance McDonald racks up 37 yards

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 20:48:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald posted two receptions for 37 yards on three targets in Week 7 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald appears to be getting a lot more comfortable in the system after coming over from San Francisco right before the regular season opener, and Ben Roethlisberger is trusting him more and more. The tight end is usually a big part of Pittsburgh's offensive game plan, so McDonald could be a fantasy standout if he continues to progress.

Steelers | Pittsburgh tight ends weren't cutting it

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 16:22:32 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald was acquired because fellow TEs Jesse James and Xavier Grimble were "not consistently varsity enough," in the words of head coach Mike Tomlin. Tomlin did make it clear that McDonald will not be crowned the started right away and will need to compete for that job.

Fantasy Tip: Ben Roethlisberger likes his tight ends, but the Steelers now have a crowded group at tight end. McDonald is more promising, but this could turn into a committee of sorts.

49ers | Vance McDonald traded to Pittsburgh

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 09:24:19 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick Tuesday, Aug. 29, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: This move clears the way for rookie George Kittle to start. McDonald was rumored to be on the block about as soon as the team laid eyes on Kittle during offseason workout, but that talk seem to disappear during the preseason. Either way, Kittle is now clearly on the dynasty radar and could enjoy some back-end TE2 value down the road.

Steelers | Pittsburgh lands Vance McDonald

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 09:21:09 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald was traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick Tuesday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: This is the rare NFL trade made around cut-down day that could actually have some impact in fantasy. McDonald gives Steelers a hint of what they were hoping to get with Ladarius Green as an athletic specimen who can stretch the seam. Once he gets familiar with the Steelers' offense, he could push Jesse James to start and be a serviceable TE2 in fantasy.

49ers | San Francisco happy with Vance McDonald

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 19:43:50 -0700

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch said the team is very happy with how TE Vance McDonald has performed during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald was made available in a trade at the draft but is still with the team and could be a starter when the season begins. He could be a late-round flier in fantasy leagues as a possible No. 2 tight end.
