49ers | Vance McDonald to see more opportunities?

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 15:34:38 -0700

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.

Sun, 21 Jul 2013 17:21:33 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald is expected to fill the role previously held by TE Delanie Walker (Titans), and the big target could potentially start in Week 1 along with TE Vernon Davis if the team uses a two-tight end alignment to start the season.
