Dan Harris
FantasyPros
McDonald has always felt like he could be a breakout candidate one year, but those feelings are gone by this point. Although he'll return with the Steelers, Eric Ebron should see the primary snaps from the tight end position, making McDonald an afterthought in fantasy. Either way, the oft-injured McDonald has cleared 391 receiving yards and 38 catches just once in his career, and is no longer a fantasy option, even in deeper leagues.Brate has plenty of talent, but has now become known more as second fiddle to O.J. Howard. Now, with Rob Gronkowski added, Brate is unlikely to be relevant even in tight end-premium leagues, particularly in Bruce Arians' system. Absent a trade, forget about Brate on draft day.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
McDonald was one of my favorite breakout candidates last season but as soon as Ben Roethlisberger went down, that dream went down the toilet. Now the Steelers have added Eric Ebron who looks to be the starter as of now. McDonald will be a decent streaming option, but unless anything happens to Ebron, he should remain on your waiver wire.Perennial TD vulture, Cameron Brate will now be 3rd on the Bucs TE depth chart after the signing of Rob Gronkowski rendering him essentially useless in terms of fantasy football. That being said, if anything happens to Gronk or O.J. Howard, Brate would be an interesting waiver wire add.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
After his 2018 breakout, Vance McDonald tumbled back to earth last season. Despite a very generous schedule, he failed to pass forty yards in a single game and looks entirely washed as a 30-year-old tight end who now sits behind Eric Ebron on the depth chart.After signing a ridiculous six year/$40 million contract in 2018, big things were expected of former UDFA Cameron Brate. He's now the clear TE3 on the Buccs depth chart and could find this is his final season in Tampa. Playing on only 37% of snaps last year and providing little receiving value, I'd suggest taking zero interest in one of the league's most overpaid tight ends.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Unfortunately, Brate is now third on the depth chart in Tampa Bay. While he could have some relevancy during the season if Rob Gronkowski and OJ Howard miss time, he's someone who currently shouldn't be rostered in any format.
