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. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 The combination of Uzomah and Tyler Eifert totaled 103 targets last year, which isn't bad on the surface, but the tight ends amounted for just a 17.4 percent target share despite A.J. Green missing the entire season. It did seem like Uzomah took over as the starter as the year went on, catching 16-of-20 targets for 125 yards and two touchdowns over the final five games of the season. It surely helped that Sample was inactive from Week 11 forward. Knowing that Sample was a second-round pick under this coaching staff, they're likely going to look for reasons to get him on the field. Sample did grade out as a better blocker than Uzomah in both run and pass blocking, too. They're both going to get playing time, but they'll cancel each other out when it comes to upside. Unless one misses time, it'll be a situation to avoid.
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. 
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.C.J. Uzomah was very much second fiddle to Tyler Eifert in 2019 and profiles as the new lead tight end in Cinci. That doesn't mean very much with a Bengals team that has a pile of great receiving options well ahead of him so Uzomah will fight with second year man Drew Sample for the red zone looks and limited targets that come with the role.
