Unfortunately there isn't much to see here. James is a solid player who can run, block, and catch, but doesn't really do anything special. His size gives the offense a big target on 3rd downs and in the red zone, but I suspect he'll be little more than a blocker this season. His touchdown potential never materialized last year, and without a shot at 6-plus touchdowns, he just isn't worth a look. I expect an uptick in playing time for the intriguing second-year player Xavier Grimble, but this version of the Steeler offense just doesn't feature the tight end enough to make the position fantasy relevant.

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.
