2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
San Francisco tight end Vance McDonald set career highs in both receiving yards (391) and touchdowns (three) in 2016, but there's simply not a lot to love at the tight end position for the 49ers this season. McDonald is not a great route runner or pass catcher and tight ends in Shanahan offenses have not been volume options in the past. Even players like Jordan Cameron only scored two touchdowns in Shanahan's 2014 Browns offense.

There just isn't much upside here at all for McDonald. Not only was he was the subject of trade rumors earlier this off-season, which would seem to indicate that the 49ers are not particularly interested in keeping him, but there are even rumors that he might still not make the team's final roster. Other options include Logan Paulsen, Garrett Celek and rookie Greg Kittle who is far from a polished pass catcher. None of these players offer much fantasy value even if McDonald does not end up making the team.

Vance McDonald traded to Steelers
Veteran TE will push Jesse James for targets
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 29, 1:25 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) on Twitter: "49ers trading TE Vance McDonald and a fifth-round pick to the Steelers for a fourth-round pick, per sources. Steelers upgrade TE." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The 49ers had tried to trade McDonald this offseason, but they didn't get any takers until now. The Steelers haven't had an impact TE since Heath Miller was in his prime, but McDonald is a good athletic receiver and should push Jesse James for targets right away. He's a TE2 with upside as a low-end TE1.
