Luck to Ebron sure sounds good, but we have to factor in Jack Doyle and a whole host of variables that this Colts team probably doesn't have its head wrapped around just yet. The good news is that they will likely play with two tight ends and both have fantasy value if Andrew Luck is healthy.McDonald showed well when he was healthy as a Pittburgh Steeler. If he can stay healthy, he's one of my favorite players this season.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
It may be tempting, but don't be so quick to give up on Ebron. Since 2000, only Gronk, Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten and Jeremy Shockey have as many receiving yards as Ebron before their 25th birthdays. Obviously, Ebron will have to overtake Doyle before having much relevance, but there is a shot it happens and thus, a shot Ebron morphs into a top-five fantasy tight end with Andrew Luck throwing him the ball.

Yes, I'm higher on Ebron than anyone. I'm assuming Luck is coming back. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's very possible that Ebron ends up higher in my final rankings, provided Andrew Luck is looking like the old Andrew Luck in the preseason. He targets the tight end position an awful lot, so despite Ebron's lack of development, he can be a player on a team that has serious wide receiver problems. Let's say you miss out on your top tight end targets and start to panic. McDonald can be someone you pair with Austin Seferian-Jenkins (or someone in that range) to produce competent numbers at the tight end position. Getting traded to the Steelers on short notice last year, McDonald had just one full week to try and catch up on the offense, something he apparently struggled with. He did close out the year with two 52-yard performances in the last four games, and the Steelers have said he's going to be much more involved this season. He's an extremely athletic tight end who averaged 16.3 yards per reception when he was given a bigger role with the 49ers in 2016. If Ben Roethlisberger can make Heath Miller and Jesse James fantasy relevant a few weeks a year, he can do the same for McDonald.
