NFL Draft: Day 3 Fantasy Fallout
April 25, 2020
Carson Wentz was robbed of his downfield weapons in 2019, but he's looking much better for 2020 after the Eagles added a trio of speedy wideouts during Day 3 of the NFL Draft.
2020 Fantasy Outlook
McDonald was a seventh-round pick in the 2020 draft after foregoing his final season of eligibility at Hawaii. He recorded strong numbers in both his red shirt freshman and sophomore seasons, tallying over 8,000 passing yards and 70 touchdowns combined. However, he'll face a steep transition to the NFL after facing a relatively low level of competition in college -- a challenge only enhanced by this year's altered offseason. McDonald will also have to overcome a hitch in his throwing motion, something he's already worked to correct during his college career. Overall, McDonald is likely in for an uphill battle to be the primary backup to Ryan Tannehill in 2020, though his athleticism should help his case to stick as a viable backup in future seasons.
