San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald (hip) was limited during the team's walkthrough Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald appears to have a good chance to play in Week 4, but owners will need to check the inactive list. McDonald has posted decent stats this season and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

49ers | Vance McDonald may miss time

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 11:31:26 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald's (hip) status for Week 4 is uncertain because of a hip injury he suffered in Week 3. Head coach Chip Kelly said McDonald is not dealing with a long-term injury, but his status will not be known until later in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if McDonald will have to miss time because of the injury. McDonald has been off to a solid start this season, but owners should have other options ready in case he is ruled out.

49ers | Vance McDonald scores touchdown

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 22:36:11 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald posted a pair of receptions with 14 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald was nearly invisible until a second half scoring play. The tight ends weren't very involved in the San Francisco offense in Week 1. If McDonald doesn't do a little better next week you should be able to find better options off the waiver wire.

49ers | Vance McDonald emerging as weapon

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 21:01:22 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald has caught five passes for 92 yards from QB Blaine Gabbert through two preseason games.

Fantasy Tip: He continues to show chemistry with Gabbert, and McDonald could end up being San Francisco's best weapon in the passing game this year. He is a sneaky TE1 candidate.

49ers | Vance McDonald impressive in opener

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 17:46:20 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald finished with two receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the team's preseason opener against the Houston Texans on Sunday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Garrett Celek started, but it was McDonald who resumed the connection he started to show with Blaine Gabbert late last season. Head coach Chip Kelly's offense is often able to create huge gaps down the middle of the field with his east-west run-action and McDonald has enough athleticism to take advantage of it in the way Zach Ertz did. The 26-year-old Rice product is a sleeper candidate for TE1 value on an offense lacking proven playmakers.

49ers | Vance McDonald not projected to start

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 20:21:42 -0700

San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald is not projected to start by beat writer Grant Cohn, citing the fact TE Garrett Celek is better at catching passes in traffic. FB/TE Bruce Miller is also in the mix, and expected to be ahead of McDonald as the 'move' tight end.

Fantasy Tip: McDonald is still expected to have a sizable role in the San Francisco offense, and a beat writer's projections shouldn't be considered gospel. Still, beat writers usually have a good handle on the pulse of a team and McDonald is apparently not standing out early in training camp as the top guy at the position which is bad for his fantasy outlook.

49ers | Bruce Miller could help out at TE

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:23:14 -0700

San Francisco 49ers FB Bruce Miller is learning the nuances of the tight end position, but he has good hands and can also help out on special teams. He might be used the No. 3 tight end behind TEs Garrett Celek and Vance McDonald.
