2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
The tight end position has simply not been a major part of the Seattle offense under Russell Wilson and that seems unlikely to change here in 2019 considering the team hasn't made any meaningful improvements to the position. Nick Vannett is back and would seem to have the inside edge to be the primary pass catching tight end in the offense again this season, but what does that really mean? He caught just 29 passes for 269 yards and three touchdowns despite playing in 15 games in 2018 and his only real competition was Ed Dickson. Dickson is also back this season, so the situation really hasn't changed.

Vannett is a low-percentile athlete almost across the board, but he does stand 6'6", 260 lbs, so he does have the size to bully smaller defensive backs out of his way in the end zone should the team opt to hit him on a play action pass near the goal line. Other than that, Vannett lacks the upside to be considered a serious fantasy option in anything other than deep formats where you're starting more than one tight end per week. Even then, he'd be considered a lower-end TE2 most weeks.

Injury Vance McDonald listed as Doubtful

FFToday's Take: McDonald has missed practice all week and with Xavier Grimble on IR the Steelers are down to rookie Zach Gentry and newly acquired Nick Vannett. Neither are fantasy plays in Week 4.

FFToday's Take: Mike Tomlin was optimistic that Vance McDonald would play on Monday night but did indicate that he might be limited. If you have other options, you might want to give them a look given Tomlin's comment. The Steelers have traded for Nick Vannett this week.
