    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James failed to haul in his only target in the team's Week 16 game Monday, Dec. 25, against the Houston Texans, finishing with zero yards.

    Huddle Up: It was his second game this season with zero catches. James undoubtedly let some people down in deeper formats, considering he had been gaining some steam as of late, having accumulated a whopping 17 targets over his last two games. He only saw a single look in this one, however, and produced zilch.

  • Posted: 12/11/2017 5:56am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James had 10 catches for 95 yards Sunday, Dec. 10, against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: James has had some booms and some busts this season, and this was one of the boomer games. A tough matchup against the New England Patriots could bring him back to reality as fringe TE1.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 2:09pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James managed three receptions for just 24 yards on five targets in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: James turned the heads of fantasy owners with two touchdowns and season highs of six catches and 41 yards in Week 1 in Cleveland, but he has totaled 12 grabs for just 110 yards in four games since. He remains nothing more than a TE2 or bye-week replacement option heading into Week 6 in Kansas City.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 1:11pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: James has been a solid option in the Steelers passing game but has not found the end zone since Week 1. He may post decent numbers against the Jacksonville Jaguars but probably can stay on the bench this week.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 4:33pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Thursday Oct. 5, one day after he practiced on a limited basis.

    Huddle Up: It looks like James will be out there on Sunday for the Steelers, but should he be out there for fantasy owners? The former Penn State product has tailed off after an eye-opening Week 1 when he scored a pair of touchdowns, as he's totaled just nine catches for 86 yards in three games since. It's possible the Pittsburgh offense has a coming-out of sorts in this one, but it's still too risky to deploy James right now in most formats.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 2:31pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: James has received some targets in the passing game but has not done much since his two-touchdown performance in Week 1. He should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most leagues and can stay on the bench this week.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 6:53pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James hauled in three receptions for 40 yards on his three targets in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: The Ravens were torched by Jacksonville's Marcedes Lewis for three scores last week, so fantasy owners were hoping it was James' turn this weekend. It never materialized. He remains nothing more than a TE2 heading into Week 5 against the Jaguars.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 12:33pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: James has been targeted at least four times in every game this season but has not done much since his two-touchdown performance in Week 1. He will be targeted in the red zone during games, but owners should be able to find more reliable options at the position.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 2:09pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: James has been able to play this season despite his injuries and likely will be in uniform again this week. He will be a red-zone target for the Steelers, but owners in most leagues should be able to find better options.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 1:15pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: James' Week 1 breakout is proving to be an anomaly. He has only managed 46 yards combined in the two games since then. He's not a reliable starting fantasy tight end but can be used as a desperation start for those who have Tyler Eifert and/or Greg Olsen.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 5:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) finished with two receptions for 19 yards on four targets in the Week 3 game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: James left the game due to a shoulder injury, but he was able to return and finish up. Unfortunately for fantasy owners he didn't do much. He'll try to rebound in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens, a team which was rolled for three touchdowns by Jacksonville Jaguars TE Marcede Lewis in London in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 11:11am ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (shoulder) suffered a shoulder injury in Week 3 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Vance McDonald would take over the starting tight end job if James is sidelined for an extended period of time but should not be a fantasy option at this point.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 12:25pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and is not in the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: James likely will receive a few targets against the Chicago Bears this week and will be a weapon if the team is close to the end zone. Owners probably can find more consistent options to use in their lineups and can keep James on the bench.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 2:08pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: James was able to return to the Week 2 game after suffering the injury, so he should have a good chance to play this week. He has been targeted 13 times in two games and is a red-zone target for the Steelers, but owners may be able to find better options for their lineups.

  • Posted: 9/20/2017 1:56pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: James opened with two touchdowns in Cleveland, and he has racked up 10 receptions through two games. Ben Roethlisberger loves to employ his tight end, and as such James is a decent option in most PPR formats when healthy. He has lesser value in standard formats due to his lack of yardage.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 4:29pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James (ankle) said he expects to play in Week 3 even though he suffered an ankle injury during the team's Week 2 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners can monitor James' progress during the week and will know more about his status after three days of practice. James scored twice in Week 1 but should only be considered a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 1:29pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James caught six passes for 41 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: James is still the starting tight end even though the team acquired Vance McDonald and could keep the job moving forward. He could be a No. 2 tight end in some leagues but probably is not a starting option against most opponents.

  • Posted: 5/18/2017 7:00pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James will be the 'main guy' at the tight end position this year, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

    Huddle Up: Pittsburgh released Ladarius Green and didn't draft a tight end, so the Steelers appear comfortable with James as the top option at the position. He could sneak into TE1 territory.
