Steelers Plan To Pick Up Vance McDonald's Option

The Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to pick up tight end Vance McDonald's $5.5 million option for the 2020 season, according to sources. McDonald would come at a salary cap hit of $7.127 million. Pittsburgh thinks he can have a bounce-back season after struggling with two quarterbacks once Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) went down for the season in the second game. McDonald had a career-high 50 receptions for 610 yards and four touchdowns in 2018 in a full year with Big Ben to just 38 catches for 273 yards and three touchdowns in 2019. He also posted a career-low 7.2 yards per catch. The 29-year-old could easily play better next season if Roethlisberger is healthy, but McDonald also has never played a full season in his seven years in the league and will strictly be a potential upside TE2 in fantasy in deeper leagues.

Vance McDonald Not An Option Against Ravens

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald can safely be left off your fantasy lineups in Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens. McDonald has had a down year, catching just 36 passes for 254 yards and three touchdowns, and has just 34 yards on eight catches over the last four games. On a fantasy point per game basis, Baltimore houses the top defense against tight ends, and even though they'll likely be resting most of their starters, McDonald doesn't carry any fantasy value outside of a DFS dart throw.

Vance McDonald Registers Just Nine Yards Against Jets

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald hauled in three of his six targets for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the New York Jets. The 29-year-old clearly wasn't able to make anything happen with the looks he did receive. After sitting out Week 15 against the Bills, McDonald was hoping to return to greener pastures, but Devlin Hodges and Mason Rudolph don't move the needle. The tight end has been a disappointment almost all season and it won't get easier in Week 17 against the Ravens where McDonald can be neglected for DFS games.
