Steelers' Vance McDonald: Modest production in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald brought in all four of his targets for 37 yards in the Steelers' 24-21 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

McDonald checked in behind JuJu Smith-Schuster and Jaylen Samuels in receptions on the afternoon, while his receiving yardage total was also a distant third behind the duo. The veteran tight end has snagged at least three receptions in every game going back to Week 6, but the 68 yards he garnered versus the Bengals in the first contest during that stretch serves as his high-water mark over that span. McDonald will look to up his numbers against the Patriots in a critical Week 15 home showdown.

Steelers' Vance McDonald: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald caught four of seven targets for 28 yards during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Chargers.

Although he appeared to be fully recovered from the hip injury he sustained in Week 13 against Denver, McDonald had his third consecutive game with under 30 yards receiving. He'll look to bounce back against Oakland -- which allows the most fantasy points to tight ends per game (12) -- in Week 14.

Steelers' Vance McDonald: Practices fully
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald (hip) returned to a full practice Thursday.

McDonald is thus on track to suit up Sunday against the Chargers, and while the tight end hasn't been a volume play of late with 16 catches over his last five games, he has scored in two of his last three outings. He therefore profiles as a tight end option in deeper fantasy formats in Week 13.

Steelers' Vance McDonald: Dealing with hip issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald (hip) didn't practice Wednesday.

McDonald's status for Sunday's game against the Chargers is thus worth monitoring in the coming days. If he's out, or limited at all this weekend, added targets could be available for fellow tight end Jesse James.

Steelers' Vance McDonald: Bothered by hip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McDonald is dealing with a hip injury and may be limited at practice this week, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

The injury didn't prevent him from handling his usual workload in Sunday's 24-17 loss to Denver, with McDonald catching three of five targets for 27 yards while logging 33 snaps on offense. One of the incomplete targets was a drop in the end zone, bringing an end to his two-game touchdown streak. Jesse James might be thrust into an every-down role if McDonald were to miss Sunday's game against the Chargers.
