Vance McDonald retires after eight seasons

Steelers TE Vance McDonald has retired from the NFL after eight seasons.

Fantasy Impact

McDonald was a second-round pick of the 49ers back in 2013. He has spent the past four seasons in Pittsburgh. His best season was 2018 where he caught 50 passes for 610 yards and four TDs. McDonald's retirement saves the Steelers $5.2 million in cap space.

Vance McDonald catches five balls

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught 5-of-6 targets for 33 yards in a 24-22 loss to Cleveland in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact

With Eric Ebon on the league's reserve/COVID-19 list, McDonald set a season-high with his five grabs. Ebron could be back next week for the Wild Card round, which would shift McDonald back to a blocking role in the offense.

Vance McDonald catches one pass

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught his lone target for a five-yard gain in a 28-24 win over the Colts in Week 16.

Fantasy Impact

The catch was McDonald's first since November 8. The veteran tight end has barely been used in the Pittsburgh passing game with Eric Ebron in town. He will face the Browns in Week 17.

Vance McDonald (COVID-19) placed on league's Reserve/COVID-19 list

Steelers' TE Vance McDonald (COVID-19) has been placed on the league's Reserve/COVID-19 list, per Field Yates.

Fantasy Impact

McDonald caught his lone target for two yards in the Steelers' 24-19 victory over the Cowboys on Sunday. His departure to the Reserve/COVID-19 list will funnel more targets to TE Eric Ebron, who has seen the majority of targets (43) between the two players, tallying 29 receptions for 285 yards and three touchdowns. Ebron remains a low-end TE1 moving forward.

Vance McDonald catches one ball

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald caught a two-yard pass in a 24-19 win over Dallas in Week 9.

Fantasy Impact

McDonald has been quiet this season with Eric Ebron in town. He is not useable in fantasy as long as Ebron is active for the Steelers. Pittsburgh faces the Bengals in Week 10.
