High-Variance Players: TE Vance McDonald - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff discusses the high side and low side of Vance McDonald

When August rolls around, the fantasy football community usually reaches a consensus on most players. Vance McDonald isn't one of those players. While he's averaging somewhere around TE24, he has been ranked between 15 and unranked at his position. What are your thoughts on him? Is he underrated or overrated? Or neither?

Clayton Gray: McDonald is a value play because of his performance in Pittsburgh's sole playoff game last year. With 10 catches for 112 yards, McDonald gave a glimpse of what he can do in the Steelers offense.

Of course, that game is an outlier, but it showed McDonald can be exactly what a fantasy player should look for in a late-round tight end. That late in your draft, you should be searching hard for upside.

McDonald, of course, has some warts - most notably his injury history (and his injury present) - but also has fantastic upside.
