Vance McDonald

Tight End • Steelers

2018 Projections

36 448 3


After a rather disappointing first regular season in Pittsburgh, McDonald busted out for 10 catches and 112 yards in a playoff loss to Jacksonville. After acquiring McDonald in a trade with the Niners prior to the 2017 season, they are seemingly committed to making him a key part of their offense.


McDonald caught 14 balls in 10 games in 2017. He was behind Jesse James on the depth chart for most of the season.

Bottom Line

It will be interesting to see if McDonald can pick up in 2018 where he left off in the playoffs, especially keeping in mind he arrived in Pittsburgh late last offseason following the trade. But even if he does, Pittsburgh has not produced an elite fantasy tight end in recent memory.
