Jesse James's Fantasy Scouting Report

2018 FANTASY RECAP WITH DOWNWARD TREND PROJECTED FOR 2019

Jesse James had a decent season as a solid fantasy starter. He was the #440 ranked fantasy player this season and the #21 TE. Even though he missed a few games he played enough so that his overall fantasy rank was better than what it was based on average fantasy points (#28 TE). His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 4 games he averaged 7.7 FPs and that declined to 1.6 in his final 5 games. Using standard deviation as an indicator of consistency, James is relatively inconsistent capable of very high highs and equally low lows. He averaged 4.1 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 20 fantasy points. Jesse James (2019 Season Projection: 23 Rec, 245 Yards, 1.2 TDs) is projected to take a significant step downward in the upcoming fantasy season. His rank based on total projected fantasy points has him as the #48 player at his position.
