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.

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.
