After scoring a pair of touchdowns in Week 1, Jesse James crashed back to earth with four catches for 27 yards and no scores against Minnesota on Sunday. Does this mean his Week 1 performance was a flash in the plan and he’s without fantasy value moving forward? I don’t think so. Despite the drop-off, James was on the field for all but two of the team’s 69 offensive snaps. He ran 30 of 37 possible pass routes and has been on the field for all but four of the Steelers’ pass plays this season. James has handled 19 percent of the team’s targets on the year and sits 12th in the league with a 1.5 OTD. He’s a fringe TE1 with big scoring upside.
With John Brown out, And, boy, did he deliver. He caught five of seven targets for 120 yards and a touchdown (he had another toe-tapping touchdown overturned). Nelson has legitimate track-star speed, but the volume was the best part of what we saw in Week 2. For as long as Brown is out, Nelson represents an upside play in your flex in leagues with 12 or more teams.

Limited Andre Hal Jersey My outlook remains about the same as last week for Lee: He’s a usable flex play in 12-team PPR leagues or larger, but there’s not a ton of upside given that Jacksonville wants to be a ground-control offense that limits Blake Bortles’ attempts. But his 12 targets were a team high in Week 2, resulting in seven catches as Jacksonville picked up production in garbage time versus Tennessee.
It’s hard to separate Lee and Hurns much, as either could lead this team in receiving yards in a game. Hurns plucked a fourth-quarter touchdown versus Tennessee. Like Lee, I’m not overly excited about his outlook. If you are in a deeper league and need a flex, Hurns is an option to consider.
