Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James catches one pass in playoff loss.

James caught a pass in the flat that he took up the sideline for 12 yards. Vance McDonald was the clear top tight end in the loss to the Jaguars, and he'll probably enter 2018 as the top option. James will be entering the final year of his contract next season.

Jesse James held in check as Steelers hold off the Browns.

James caught two passes for nine yards in the win. After beginning the season with a two-touchdown performance, the third-year tight end slowed down and finished with a line similar to last year's 39/338/3 with 43 receptions for 372 yards and three scores in 16 games. James will split time with Vance McDonald in a potential playoff run.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James doesn't catch a pass in Week 16.

James was targeted once, but he didn't catch any passes versus the Texans. The big tight end is difficult to trust in fantasy lineups even in a good matchup with the Browns next week.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James the center of attention in thrilling loss to New England.

James caught two passes for seven yards, but the biggest play of the game was the catch he didn't make, as what was originally ruled as a probable game-winning touchdown actually turned out to be an incompletion after a long review. People have complained time and time again about the catch rule, but the correct call was made, and the rule is in place to make what is and isn't a catch completely objective. Of course, the Steelers still had a tremendous chance to at worst send the game into overtime, but Ben Roethlisberger got greedy and tossed an interception into tight coverage on a fake spike to end the game. James will be a TE2 on Christmas against Houston.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James catches ten passes in Week 14.

James was targeted 12 times against the Ravens, gaining 97 yards on his ten receptions. The Steelers did throw the ball 66 times in the game, and that’s not going to happen often (if again). James isn’t a highly-reccommended option next week against the Patriots.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James catches one pass in Week 13.

James' lone reception went for 13 yards. You're really hoping for a touchdown if you insert James into fantasy lineups.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James caught three passes for 32 yards in Sunday's win over the Packers.

James dropped a pass over the middle on what would have been a chunk gain, but Ben Roethlisberger went right back to him and picked up a first down on the same drive. James won't be a recommended fantasy option against Cincinnati in Week 13.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James scores against the Titans.

James was targeted eight times in the Steelers' Thursday night win, catching five passes for 21 yards and a touchdown. As the stat line shows, James worked as an underneath target for Ben Roethlisberger throughout the night; and the touchdown came on a nice play-call inside the one-yard line—a play-action fake that helped get James wide-open in the middle of the end zone. The Packers in Week 12 are a difficult matchup against tight ends, so you're really hoping for a touchdown if you want to play James next week. There are probably better TE options out there.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James caught two passes for 42 yards in Pittsburgh's Week 8 win over the Lions.

Operating as the clear top tight end with Vance McDonald out, James long reception went for 32 yards. McDonald should be back after the team's Week 9 bye, so the two will probably split time and limit each other's fantasy value.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James caught three passes for 24 yards in Sunday's 30-9 loss to Jacksonville.

James will make some plays for Pittsburgh, but he's not a fantasy option against the Chiefs in Week 6, especially with the offense struggling.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James caught three passes for 40 yards in Sunday's win over the Ravens.

James has a reception of at least 12 yards in every game to start the season, and he's on pace for 60 catches for 508 yards and eight touchdowns. Still, he's only a fantasy option when the matchup is right, and Vance McDonald could cut into his playing time as we get deeper into the season.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James caught two passes for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

James has unsurprisingly trended downward since his two-touchdown performance in the season opener. Despite Jacksonville scoring three touchdowns from the tight end position against the Ravens on Sunday, James won't be a good fantasy option as they head to Baltimore for Week 4.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James is back in the game for the Steelers.

James had his shoulder evaluated, but he's back for the Steelers.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James (shoulder) is questionable to return against the Bears.

James went to the locker room to get evaluated, so we'll see if he's able to get back int the game.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James catches four of five targets in Week 2.

James had four receptions for 27 yards against the Vikings. He's been an outlet for Ben Roethlisberger over the first two weeks of the season, and he does offer some solid fantasy potential each week. There are probably better options for Week 3, though.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James scores twice in season opener.

James caught six passes for 41 yards against the Browns, including two touchdowns inside the five-yard line. People got excited about newly-acquired tight end Vance McDonald, but James already has chemistry with Ben Roethlisberger and is the preferred fantasy option for at least the early part of the season. He gets the Vikings next Sunday.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James catches one pass for 12 yards in Week 3 of the preseason.

James could be done for the preseason if the Steelers opt to hold out all of their starters in Week 4 of the preseason. The big tight end should be able to deliver at least TE2 value this season, though he's going undrafted in fantasy drafts.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James catches five passes for 48 yards in AFC Championship loss.

James will be back with Pittsburgh next season, but likely as a backup behind Ladarius Green or someone else.

Jesse James has big game to help Steelers get Divisional Round win over KC.

James had five receptions 83 yards. He got open in the middle of the field a few times against the Chiefs, helping the Steelers drive the field. If Ladarius Green (concussion) is out again next week, James will be a key in the AFC Championship.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James had four catches for 49 yards in the Steelers' win over Baltimore.

James played a bigger role with Ladarius Green (concussion) sidelined, but fellow tight end Xavier Grimble ended up with a touchdown on Christmas. Pittsburgh should give Green another week to get over his concussion with a meaningless game against Cleveland on Sunday, so James could be a great option against Cleveland's 32nd ranked defense against tight ends.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James caught one pass for five yards on Sunday.

With Ladarius Green's emergence since returning from injury, James isn't a fantasy option.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

Jesse James caught one pass for five yards in Sunday’s win.

James was better than Ladarius Green, but that isn’t saying much. The Steelers passing attack didn’t do much in a windy game. James will be a TE2 in Week 12 against the Colts.

Jesse James | Steelers TE

The Outlaw Jesse James remains involved in Steelers offense.

Despite the return of Ladarius Green, James caught four passes for 59 yards for the Steelers—his best game since Week 5. James isn't a good fantasy option, but there is always a chance he can catch a TD from Ben Roethlisberger.
