Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James was a hot waiver add last week after he turned in a career game in Week 2, catching five passes for 138 yards and a score. He was unable to replicate his success in Week 3, however, catching just one pass for seven yards. With Vance McDonald fully healthy now, it appears unlikely that James will see much work in the passing game. James is not a fantasy option against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4 and should be back on waivers with McDonald taking over as the team's starter.

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James is coming off a career day in Week 2. James finished with five catches for 138 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs. The big performance by James instantly propels him into the TE2 range in fantasy leagues going forward. He appears to have moved ahead of the oft-injured Vance McDonald in the target pecking order in Pittsburgh, which boosts his fantasy value. In Week 3, James will travel to Tampa Bay where he will take on the Buccaneers on Monday night. He can be treated as a mid-range TE2 for that matchup.

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James turned in one of the more surprising Week 2 performances, catching five passes for 138 yards and a touchdown in his team's 42-37 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. James was expected to take a backseat with Vance McDonald returning from injury. Instead, he went ahead and set a new career high in receiving yards. The veteran tight end is not known as a big play threat and this is likely to go down as his best game of the season. He will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night in Week 3.
