With Antonio Brown and Jesse James out of town, there's over 200 targets up for grabs in the Steelers offense, though they're not likely to throw the ball as much in 2019. Still, McDonald was given a vote of confidence when the Steelers didn't draft a tight end in the first four rounds of what was considered a deep tight end class. Not much slides past me, but did you know McDonald saw 73 targets in 2018? That ranked 12th among tight ends and he finished as the No. 10 fantasy tight end. If McDonald stays on the field, he's absolutely locked-in for 90-plus targets and a top-eight finish in 2019You don't need us to tell you that Ebron's going to come back down to earth in 2019, right? Let's say you're optimistic and aren't worried about the additions of Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell, or the return of Jack Doyle. He scored 14 touchdowns in 2018, which ranks as the third-most all-time by a tight end. His targets (110), however, ranked 13th all-time, and his yardage (750) ranked 132nd all-time. Regression is coming

I love me some Vance this season. Team Rocket is finally gone, and there are a massive amount of targets available after the departure of AB. Vance had his best season as a pro in 2018, posting a 50/610/4 stat line, as the third leading target for the Steelers. We've seen him flash his ceiling at times, but he's never been able to put it all together. This season, with over 200 vacated targets up for grabs, we could finally see the breakout. He's a great TE to target after the mid range TE's are all off the board.I genuinely don't know what to do with Ebron. He's going to have some really nice weeks, and he's going to have some really not so nice weeks. The way I see it is this, Ebron's final stat line is probably going to be decent, but he's going to be frustrating to own. The Colts have Hilton/Campbell/Funchess/Mack/Hines/Doyle also in line for targets, so expecting Ebron to be consistent is a little ridiculous. He'll be a great DFS play becasue we know the weekly TD upside is massive, but for season long, he's going to be so difficult to trust. I'm not avoiding him, but I'll probably let other people deal with the headache.

We know McDonald has untapped potential as he is oozing with upside, and it further helps that Antonio Brown is leaving 168 targets on the table. Did you know, though, that even prior to those truths, McDonald was a top 12 fantasy tight end last season? If you wait on tight end, he is a great fallback plan.Ebron had an excellent fantasy season in 2018 but it was almost exclusively touchdown driven. You can say that is good, but why would we think it was the norm after the exact opposite was the knock on him all along. The scariest thing about Ebron is that when Doyle came back from injury, Ebron played just 22%, 38% and 40% of the team snaps even despite his prior performance. Ebron isn't even a lock to be the starter so be careful on draft day.
Derek Lofland

 Ebron had 750 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns in 2019. There are concerns that Jack Doyle being healthy in 2019 could hurt his value, but his touchdowns should keep him in the TE1 discussion.
