Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald scored his second touchdown of the season in Week 10 and will look to build upon that performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11. Of all of Pittsburgh's pass-catchers, McDonald draws the easiest matchup against a talented Jacksonville defense. While the Jaguars have clamped down on enemy wide receivers, they are allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. As a result, McDonald could see some extra work in the passing game this weekend. Treat him as a low-end TE1 for his Week 11 matchup against Jacksonville.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught four passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in his team's 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10. McDonald got off to a slow start in the game but came to life in the second half, catching a 12-yard touchdown to kick off the scoring in the third quarter. McDonald has been a solid fantasy tight end this season, despite scoring just two touchdowns on the year. He will look to keep it going in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald has been performing below expectations over the past two weeks, racking up just six catches for 72 yards over that span. That being said, there's reason to strongly consider him for fantasy lineups in Week 10. McDonald will take on a Carolina Panthers defense that has been one of the best fantasy matchups in the league for tight ends. Carolina is allowing the most fantasy points per game to the position and ranks just 27th in pass defense DVOA against tight ends. McDonald can be treated as a low-end TE1 with plenty of upside for this week's game.
