    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.

  • Posted: 1/15/2017 10:32pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James had five catches for 83 yards Sunday, Jan. 15, in an 18-16 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: With Pittsburgh's lack of receiving depth (Antonio Brown and Eli Rogers), James has emerged as a quality pass-catching candidate. Assuming he still is in the Steelers' plans for 2017, James can be thought of as a low-end TE1 option in 2017 drafts.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 8:50pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James posted four receptions for 59 yards on four targets in the Week 10 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: James has been a low-end TE1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, as Ben Roethlisberger loves to incorporate his tight ends into the offense. However, watch the next few games with Ladarius Green getting healthier. He could potentially push James for targets at the position now than Green is healthy.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 2:24pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James caught six passes for 43 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: James was targeted a season-high eight times this week and scored his third touchdown of the season. He will have fantasy value because of his touchdown potential, but he likely will not be a weekly starting option for owners.

  • Posted: 9/18/2016 10:28pm ET

    Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James posted three receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was targeted five times.

    Huddle Up: The 6-foot-7 tight end is quickly developing a nice rapport with Ben Roethlisberger, a quarterback who has traditionally relied heavily on his tight ends. He is still not quite a must-start fantasy option, but if your primary option is struggling, James is worth keeping an eye on.
