Jesse James a favorite of Big Ben, coaching staff

In a Q&A article, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer Gerry Dulac revealed that Steelers tight end Jesse James is a favorite of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the coaching staff.

Fantasy Impact

Given how unreliable Ladarius Green was last year, James was often asked to step up as the starter at tight end. He didn't post eye-popping numbers, but was reliable and came through in the clutch during the playoffs. Despite the positive vibes from Big Ben and the coaching staff, James isn't likely to be more than a middling TE2 in fantasy leagues.
