Jesse James's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Jesse James is not projected to be worth a roster spot based on total fantasy points the rest of the season. His 26 projected fantasy points puts him at #42 behind Tyler Eifert and ahead of Cole Kmet. He has averaged 1.43 fantasy points in his past 29 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 2.9 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#45) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #41 ranked tight end. Jesse James is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #58 fantasy position rank.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

JESSE JAMES PROJECTED TO FINISH AHEAD OF TYLER EIFERT IN WEEK 9

Jesse James is projected for 3.1 fantasy points in week 9 which only ranks him as the #31 projected tight end and not a fantasy relevant player for the week. This is projected to be a slightly better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Tyler Eifert but behind Mo Alie-Cox. Week 10 will not be as good based on projected rank (#36). He is projected for 2.9 fantasy points.

JESSE JAMES IS A BETTER VALUE ON DRAFTKINGS AT $2.5K THAN ON FANDUEL AT $4.3

For each platform we calculate a position specific points per dollar and our projection says he is a better value on DraftKings than on FanDuel. He is projected for 4 FD points and is worth -$1600 less than $4.3K on FD. On DK he is projected for 5 points and is worth -$506 less than $2.5K. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
