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 2019It was supposed to be a breakout season for Burton in 2018 under Matt Nagy, but instead, it was a mediocre season. While he did finish as the No. 7 tight end, anyone who owned him can tell you it was frustrating. He played all 16 games, but he was hampered by some injuries at the end of the year. While year two could bring more consistency, we should have both Anthony Miller and Allen Robinson nearing full health, as they dealt with injuries as well in 2018. Burton isn't going to turn into Travis Kelce despite playing in the same offense, but he's still likely going to finish as a top-10 tight end at year's end

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.Trey Burton finished as the TE 7 last season, but is being drafted as the TE 12. He fell off a lot in the back half of the season, scoring just one TD in the second half of the season. I expect his numbers to improve in his second year in the offense. Trubisky is a good QB, and Burton has some decent upside if they can find that same connection they had in the first half of last season.

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.You may not be excited about drafting Burton after his "disappointing" 2018, and you would be right that he doesn't have top 3 upside at the position, but he did finish as the #6 fantasy tight end last season. Granted, his 93 standard-scoring fantasy points were less than half of what Travis Kelce put up, but like Lamar Miller at running back, there is a place for the boring Burton in your fantasy lineup.
Derek Lofland

 Burton lived up to expectations in his first year as a starter with 54 receptions for 569 yards and 6 touchdowns. He should be in that mid-tier TE1 discussion again in 2019.
