Jesse James Tops Lions Depth

Detroit Lions tight end Jesse James was listed as the top tight end on the Lions first official depth chart. The veteran, and newly signed Lion, should be in store for a relatively busy season. He will be competing for snaps with rookie standout T.J. Hockenson but the Lions have already mentioned they will be running numerous two tight end sets. There is not much fantasy value for James but he isn't the worst option later in the season as injuries and bye weeks begin. For now, James will likely go undrafted in most leagues.

Jesse James Agrees To Terms With the Lions

Free-agent tight end Jesse James (Steelers) has agreed to terms with the Detroit Lions, a source said Monday. Financial terms and length of the contract have not yet been disclosed. He posted 30 receptions for a career-high 423 yards and 14.1 yards per reception in 2018, and he has scored a total of nine touchdowns over his 56-game, four-year career, all with Pittsburgh. James gives the Lions a much-needed shot in the arm at tight end, as they struggled to replace Eric Ebron last season. It wouldn't be surprising to see James post career highs across the board, but he is still more of a TE2 for fantasy purposes until further notice.

Jesse James Could Play More If Vance McDonald Sits

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James could be in line for an increased workload if Vance McDonald (hip) is unable to suit up against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 13. McDonald was forced to leave Week 12's game early after he suffered a hip injury. Head coach Mike Tomlin told reporters that he expects McDonald to be limited in practice early in the week, which gives some hope that he will be able to gut it out on Sunday after taking it easy early in the week. If McDonald plays, he can be treated as a high-end TE2. If he sits, James will on the radar as a streaming candidate and a dirt-cheap DFS option in tournaments.
