Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald caught three passes for 33 yards on Thursday, Nov. 14, against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: McDonald entered 2019 as a top-10 tight end, but he hasn't topped 40 yards receiving in a game this season. Any optimism that was generated by him catching two TDs in Mason Rudolph's first game petered out long ago, and McDonald isn't worth owning outside of deep leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.
Huddle Up: McDonald was targeted a season-high seven times last week but still only posted 30 receiving yards. Fantasy players probably can find better options and can keep McDonald on the bench.

Huddle Up: McDonald still has been held to 30 yards or less in four of the last five games but was able to find the end zone last week. He could be a possible bye week replacement in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

Huddle Up: McDonald did well enough, especially for fantasy owners in PPR leagues, but he remains more of a TE2 across the board heading into Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams.
