Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught three passes for 39 yards in a 16-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17. McDonald finishes the 2018 season with 50 catches for 610 yards and four touchdowns, setting or tying career highs across the board. While he didn't flash much upside outside of a four-catch, 112-yard Week 3 explosion against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, McDonald has emerged as a reliable, low-end TE1 in fantasy. He should be a solid late-round value at the position again in 2019.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught one of four targets for 49 yards in a 31-28 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 16. While McDonald wasn't heavily targeted, at least his lone catch went for a large chunk of yardage. McDonald has had some big weeks for the Steelers this season but he has been an inconsistent fantasy asset. He has a chance for a big game in Week 17 against a Cincinnati Bengals defense that has been generous to opposing passing games this season. Treat McDonald as a low-end TE1 for that contest.
Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught two passes for 13 yards and a touchdown in his team's 17-10 win over the New England Patriots in Week 15. McDonald got the Steelers off to a fast start, capping off their first drive with a seven-yard touchdown reception. McDonald has been a borderline TE1/TE2 throughout the season, which will be the case in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints.
