DET TE Jesse James - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Over the past three seasons with the Steelers, Jesse James has averaged 37 receptions for 378 yards and scored eight times. He is coming off a career-high 423 yards last year, averaging more than 14 yards per grab. James has not missed a game in three years, is just 25 years old and is a huge target at 6’7”.

Fantasy Downside
The Lions drafted T.J. Hockenson in the first round and plan for him to be their TE of the future. Even though James registered a career-high in yards last season, nearly 200 of them came in the first two weeks. In ’18, he scored just twice and had more than three receptions in a game on only three occasions.

Bottom Line
James and Hockenson are both learning a new offense, so the veteran may see some additional playing time early on as the rookie gets acquainted with the NFL. Right now, neither player makes for a good fantasy option, but Hockenson definitely has the long-term upside.
