Summary

McDonald is an injury-prone, error-prone player, and the 49ers admitted to shopping him during the draft. He doesn't look long for the new regime, but at the moment he's the team's only real receiving threat at tight end. That should guarantee a baseline of 30-40 catches and 3-4 touchdowns, but his uneven play and tendency to miss time points to less-than-desirable fantasy draft value. Besides, he resides on one of the league's worst offenses, one that won't place him in scoring position very often and solidly caps his upside. If you're still looking into tight ends this late in the draft, you're generally better served by rolling the dice on a (more) talented youngster elsewhere. (May 21)

49ers | Vance McDonald could be cut (Tue May 23, 01:03 AM) - San Francisco 49ers TE Vance McDonald is a candidate to be cut, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. He said it 'wouldn't be a surprise' if McDonald didn't make the 53-man roster.

Our View: Keep this in mind if you have dynasty stock in Blake Bell or if you selected George Kittle in your 2017 rookie drafts. The former regime signed McDonald to a five-year, $35-million extension last December. There is a potential out on his contract, but not until after the 2017 season. McDonald still has $7.7 million remaining in dead money on his contract.
