It is no guarantee that the Steelers will give McDonald the starting job, but should he take it over from Jesse James, we would be looking at a breakout candidate with top 10 tight end upside. McDonald is a capable athlete who could excel in the red zone of Big Ben's offense.

Vance McDonald listed as Pittsburgh's starting TE

The Pittsburgh Steelers released their first depth chart of the 2018 season on Saturday. Second-year Steeler Vance McDonald was listed as the team's starting tight end over Jesse James.

Fantasy Impact

McDonald was a late addition to the team during training camp in 2017 and never fully integrated himself into the offense. McDonald is extremely athletic and could be in line for a big breakout in 2018 if he can stay on the field. It appears the Steelers are prepared to give McDonald a bigger role than he had in 2017.
