Jesse James agrees to deal with Lions

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports the Lions have agreed to a contract with tight end Jesse James.

Fantasy Impact

Detroit remains the most active team at the onset of free agency. James posted a career-high in receiving yards last season but still wasn't much of a fantasy factor. His departure from Pittsburgh could open up a big role for Vance McDonald.

Jesse James likely to re-sign with Steelers?

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert indicated the team is likely to re-sign Jesse James.

Fantasy Impact

James posted a career high in yards last year but wasn't really a fantasy factor. He has more "real life" value due to his great blocking skills.

Jesse James goes for 28 yards

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James caught two passes for 28 yards in his team's 24-21 loss to the Raiders in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

James continues to play behind Vance McDonald, which has capped what little upside he had. He won't be a fantasy option in Week 15 against New England.

Jesse James catches four passes

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James caught four passes for 35 yards in his team's 24-17 loss to the Broncos in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

James made good on all four of his targets on an afternoon where the Steelers threw the ball 56 times. The tight end remains behind Vance McDonald in the pecking order and is not a fantasy option in Week 13 against the Chargers.

Jesse James finds the end zone in Week 10

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James caught an eight-yard touchdown in his team's 52-21 win over the Panthers in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact

It was the veteran tight end's only catch of the evening but he certainly made it count. James has taken a backseat to Vance McDonald this season but he has still produced some decent stat lines. He will take on the Jaguars in Week 11.
