James Mitchell catches pass in Week 18

James Mitchell caught his only target for 24 yards in the Lions' 30-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 18.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell continues his minimal impact as part of a high-octane Detroit passing attack, catching a pass for the first time this season. The tight end finishes a forgettable 2023-24 season with just one catch and four receiving yards playing behind star rookie tight end Sam LaPorta and backup Brock Wright most weeks.

James Mitchell catches three passes Friday night against Giants

James Mitchell caught all three of his targets for 53 receiving yards in the Lions' 21-16 win over the Giants Friday night.

Fantasy Impact

Mitchell flashed an ability to stretch the field Friday night, averaging 17.7 yards per reception while finishing second the team in receptions on the night. The tight end has spent much of camp behind first-round draft pick Sam LaPorta, but could still carve out a modest role as the No. 2 option as part of an offense looking for more explosive plays this upcoming season.
