  • Steelers' Vance McDonald: Seven catches in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    McDonald caught seven of eight targets for 68 yards in Sunday's 28-21 win over the Bengals. McDonald was a force in this one, using his big frame to gain extra yards on almost every catch. He's emerging as the go-to tight end in Pittsburgh despite Jesse James' hot start to the season. Pittsburgh will be on bye in Week 7.

  • McDonald caught one of his two targets for six yards during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Falcons. Thirteen of Ben Roethlisberger's 29 passes went to Antonio Brown, and the remaining 16 were spread out among seven different players, limiting everyone's fantasy production. McDonald may not fare much better in Week 6 against Cincinnati, who has limited him to three catches for 47 yards in two career matchups.

  • McDonald caught four of five passes for 112 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 30-27 win over the Buccaneers. McDonald scored Pittsburgh's first touchdown of the game, taking a Ben Roethlisberger pass 75 yards while bowling over Bucs safety Chris Conte in the process. The 112 yards were a career-best, matching McDonald's effort in last season's playoff loss to Jacksonville. The tight end is becoming an integral part of the passing game, with Jesse James catching five passes for 138 yards and a touchdown Week 2, so it will be interesting to see if one emerges over the other. Regardless, they face a tough Baltimore defense Week 4 that has not allowed an opposing tight end to score this season.

  • Steelers' Vance McDonald: Trio of catches Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    McDonald recorded three receptions for 26 yards across 37 offensive reps in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. McDonald split time with Jesse James throughout the contest, bringing in three of his five targets. However, it was McDonald's first game back from foot injury, so there is a possibility he could see a heavier workload Monday against the Buccaneers.

  • McDonald (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com. After sitting out the Week 1 tie with the Browns, McDonald proved his health by practicing fully Wednesday through Friday. Though he'll suit up Sunday, it's uncertain how prominently McDonald will be featured in the Steelers' passing attack in his first game back from the injury. It's expected that some sort of timeshare at tight end between McDonald and Jesse James will be in place for at least this week.
