 Greg Olsen suffered a concussion in last week's loss, and is out this week. In his absence, Ian Thomas is expected to benefit the most.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We've reached a truly tough crossroads with the tight end position and just how bad the Cardinals defense is against them. Is McDonald worse than they are? Maybe. He's totaled 46 targets this year but you (yes, you reading this) have as many games with more than 40 yards than he does. Hodges has started two games, and in those games, McDonald has totaled just four targets combined. Ugh. The Cardinals have allowed a 76.0 percent completion-rate (highest in NFL), 9.40 yards per target (2nd-highest), and a touchdown every 8.0 targets (most often). It all amounts to 2.45 PPR points per target. It's kind of ridiculous at this point. This matchup is literally the only time you should contemplate McDonald. We can't guarantee more than a few targets with how little Hodges throws, so he's a borderline TE1/TE2 this week who you don't have to use if you really don't want to. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Given how bad Arizona has been against fantasy tight ends, McDonald is a great roll of the dice TE1 against the worst tight end defense in the NFL.
