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)
