  • Bears' Jesse James: Not targeted in loss

    James posted no stats in the Bears' 31-17 Week 18 loss to the Vikings, and he ended the season with seven catches for 62 yards and a touchdown.

    As the Bears' third-string tight end, James saw more than 25 snaps on just two occasions. Although he technically has three more years on his contract, all are void years, and the team can move on with no cap penalty. However, if the Bears let Jimmy Graham go, James could move up the depth chart and potentially have fantasy value as a red-zone target, though Cole Kmet will likely see the overwhelming majority of tight end targets.

  • Bears' Jesse James: First catch since Week 8

    James caught his only target for four yards in the Bears' 29-3 win over the Giants on Sunday.

    This is just the third time this season that James has posted a reception in a game, and he won't be a recommended fantasy option in Week 18 against the Vikings.

  • Bears' Jesse James: Removed from COVID-19 list

    James was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    James was one of five Chicago players to be removed from COVID-19 protocols Monday. He will likely assume his usual role behind Cole Kmet and Jimmy Graham during the Bears' Week 17 matchup with the Giants.

  • Bears' Jesse James: Not activated Monday

    James will remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list and won't be available for Monday's game against the Vikings, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    The reserve tight end is one of 14 members of the Bears roster or practice squad who won't suit up Monday after being placed on the list in recent days. James had drawn just one target over the Bears' last five games, so his absence will likely go unnoticed for fantasy purposes.

  • Bears' Jesse James: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    James was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    The tight end will now likely be unavailable for the team's Monday night matchup with the Vikings as he goes through COVID-19 protocols. With Cole Kmet (illness), Jesper Horsted (illness) and Jimmy Graham (knee) questionable for Week 15, J.P. Holtz is the only healthy option remaining at the position going into Friday.

  • Bears' Jesse James: Finds end zone

    James caught three passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 33-22 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

    With Jimmy Graham (COVID-19) missing this game, James caught all three of his targets, including the only touchdown pass Justin Fields threw. For the second straight game, James caught three passes, though once Graham returns, there's a strong chance James returns to the reserve spot he held, which resulted in zero catches through Week 6.

  • Bears' Jesse James: Targeted three times

    James caught three passes for 20 yards in the Bears' 38-3 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    James took over the second tight-end role with Jimmy Graham (COVID-19) sitting this one out, but he had most of his production when the game was well out of hand. Stuck in an anemic Chicago passing attack while not being the lead tight end, James has limited fantasy upside.
