Vance McDonald expected to remain with Steelers

The Steelers are expected to retain tight end Vance McDonald.

Fantasy Impact

McDonald was a disappointment for the Steelers and fantasy owners who invested in him as their TE1 entering the 2019 season. Touted by many as a high-upside pick, he continued to deal with injury and ineffectiveness when he was on the field. The Steelers acquired Nick Vannett to fill in at the position, but he's an unrestricted free agent this offseason. McDonald could warrant fantasy consideration if he's the clear starter, but it remains to be seen how the team will address the position this offseason.

Vance McDonald catches two balls

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught both of his targets for 19 yards in a 28-10 loss to the Ravens in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

McDonald was the second-leading receiver on the team. He wraps up a quiet season with just 38 catches for 273 yards and three scores in 14 games. He will benefit from the return of Ben Roethlisberger in 2020.

Vance McDonald catches three passes

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught 3-of-6 targets for nine yards in a 16-10 loss to the Jets in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

McDonald missed the previous game with a concussion. It has been a disappointing season for the preseason sleeper candidate. He will close out the regular season against the Ravens next week.

Vance McDonald clears concussion protocol

Vance McDonald (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

McDonald cleared concussion protocol and will return to action Week 16. He ended up missing one game due to a concussion. McDonald hasn't surpassed 40 yards in any game this season and is a boom or bust TE2 for Week 16.

Vance McDonald still in concussion protocol

Vance McDonald remains in concussion protocol, according to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

McDonald missed Week 15's game against the Bills due to the injury suffered the prior week in a matchup with the Cardinals. Even if McDonald is cleared ahead of the team's Week 16 game with the Jets, he's not likely to be in the TE1 consideration given other options available and McDonald's own lack of consistency this season.
