Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

McDonald logged limited practices Thursday and Friday, so he seems to have a decent enough chance to suit up. In an offense where even Vernon Davis isn't getting many targets, though, a backup like McDonald is safely off the fantasy radar in nearly all cases, particularly given his ball security concerns.
McDonald only recorded one catch for 21 yards against the Rams on Monday, but he also coughed up the ball on the same play.

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

McDonald is currently listed as the backup to Vernon Davis on the 49ers' 2014 depth charts. While he only had eight catches in 2013, his 14.9 YPC shows that he has big-play ability. His stock would skyrocket should Davis go down with an injury.

2013

McDonald has received positive reports so far at rookie camp as a pass catcher and could see some targets in two-tight end sets if he wins the backup TE job.
