James caught his lone target for an eight-yard touchdown during Thursday's 52-21 win over Carolina.
Considering Ben Roethlisberger completed 22 of 25 passes for 328 yard and five touchdowns, this was a disappointing night for James. Vance McDonald continues to out produce him and that is likely to be the case when Pittsburgh faces Jacksonville in Week 11.
James caught two of three targets for 53 yards during Sunday's 23-16 win over Baltimore.
Despite having just two receptions, James produced his highest yardage total since Week 2. He seems to rank behind Vance McDonald on the depth chart but has an attractive Week 10 slate on Thursday against a Carolina defense that allows the most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends.
James caught two of his three targets for 9 yards during Sunday's 33-18 win over Cleveland.
After totaling 198 receiving yards and a score in the first two games this season James has managed a meager 85 yards over the next five with no touchdowns. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere to fill their tight end lineup spot, especially in Week 9 against a Baltimore pass defense that has allowed just two touchdowns to an opposing tight end this season, although they have come in the past two games.
James had five receptions for 26 yards during Sunday's 28-21 win over Cincinnati.
His seven targets were the most in a game this season and is averaging 16.1 yards per catch after averaging no better than 8.7 YPC in any of his previous seasons. Following a Week 7 bye, James will face a tough Cleveland defense that has held opposing tight ends to an average of three catches for 29 yards and no touchdowns in five out of six games this season. Keep in mind, however, that the Browns have faced several teams who don't actively seek out the position on offense.
James caught both his targets for 20 yards during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Falcons.
James has only been targeted four times over the past three weeks after seeing 10 targets in his first two games of the season. Week 6 may result in more of the same against a Bengals defense that limited him to one catch for 13 yards the last time they met.
