49ers | Vance McDonald turning heads

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 19:12:42 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald is a player garnering plenty of attention during minicamp, as QB Blaine Gabbert and tight ends coach Jeff Nixon each heaped praise on the tight end. "He's such a great athlete. He's smart. He does a great job in the run and pass game. He's a guy that we have to utilize. He's a mismatch nightmare on linebackers," Gabbert said. Nixon said the team is looking for McDonald to pick up where he left off last season and be a big-play tight end in the pass game.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald might not be worth drafting in most standard fantasy formats, but he could emerge as a bye-week replacement or hot waiver wire pick-up as the season progresses. McDonald still has to leapfrog Garrett Celek for the top tight end job.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald has topped 60 yards in three of his last five games, and he has three touchdowns during the stretch. With Vernon Davis out of the picture, McDonald has become a viable tight end option at FantasyScore.

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 16:52:38 -0800

Fantasy Tip: McDonald ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and the Niners face a tough defense in the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15, and McDonald should be seen as nothing more than a deep sleeper at the position.

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and has been ruled out for the Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Blake Bell ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) should see more playing time with McDonald out of the lineup. He has not received much playing time this season and should not be a starting option in any league.

49ers | Vance McDonald day-to-day

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 13:24:48 -0800

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald (concussion) is day-to-day as he works his way through the concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) missed both days of practice earlier this week and might be a long shot to play in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns. Either way, he's not a great option for FantasyScore gamers this week.

49ers | Three Niners out of practice

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 07:07:10 -0800

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot), TE Vance McDonald (concussion) and WR Torrey Smith (back, toe) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look good for any of these players against the Cleveland Browns Sunday. Hyde ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has missed considerable time and might be shut down for the rest of the year at this point. Shaun Draughn ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) continues to see a big chunk of the backfield workload and is a great value selection on FantasyScore against the Browns. McDonald ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) and Smith ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) should be off your radar.
