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 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.

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.
