2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
I could sense last year that this offense was tailor made for McDonald's strength and athleticism. Not only did he emerge as a threat down the seam, his flair for dramatic, punishing runs after the catch fired up this offense. Now more than ever the Steelers offense needs a reliable receiver at tight end. With the departure of Antiono Brown, and with the additional exit of Jessie James, McDonald has a tremendous opportunity. In 2018, McDonald was able to play 15 games, and put up career highs in receptions (50) and yards (610), and I feel like those are his floor if he can stay healthy this season. He finished just outside the top-10 at the position last year and is frankly one of my favorite value picks at tight end in 2019. There are targets to be had in the Pittsburgh offense, and I think Vance is the biggest beneficiary, putting him in my TE1 crosshairs.

Injury James Conner (ankle) being evaluated
Steelers RB's injury could vault Jaylen Samuels in 10 RBs for Week 5
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 1, 12:53 pm

Pittburgh Steelers
Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) on Twitter: "Tomlin says James Conner (ankle) and Cam Heyward (quad) are being evaluated still. They'll be limited some this week. Practice will dictate game availability. Tomlin is hopeful on Vince Williams, Vance McDonald and Anthony Chickillo" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jaylen Samuels would be a Top 10 RB play if Conner was forced to miss Week 5. He's a priority add on the waiver wire this week.


Injury Vance McDonald listed as Doubtful

Steelers injury report: Vince Williams, Anthony Chickillo and Roosevelt Nix are all out. TE Vance McDonald is doubtful. (Brooke Pryor on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: McDonald has missed practice all week and with Xavier Grimble on IR the Steelers are down to rookie Zach Gentry and newly acquired Nick Vannett. Neither are fantasy plays in Week 4.


Injury Vance McDonald misses practice Thursday

The Steelers injury report for Thursday, their first back on the field before Monday night’s game against the Bengals. #Steelers #dkps (Dale Lolley on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Mike Tomlin was optimistic that Vance McDonald would play on Monday night but did indicate that he might be limited. If you have other options, you might want to give them a look given Tomlin's comment. The Steelers have traded for Nick Vannett this week.
