Season Projections
Mega-talented do-it-all T.J. Hockenson is clearly the Lions' future at the position, but James will operate as a safety net in case the rookie eighth overall pick isn't ready for full-time starting duties in Week 1. During the last three years, James was a key part of the Steelers' tight end by committee. He's a very powerful run blocker, and James, considered a competent receiver, averaged 54 targets, 37 catches, 378 receiving yards and 2.7 scoring grabs per season during that time frame. The presence of Hockenson has squashed James' upside, but he'll still see part-time action in two-tight end sets and goal-line packages as a candidate to catch short flip passes for touchdowns. An injury to Hockenson would leave James with boom-or-bust streaming potential as Detroit's most seasoned guy at the position.

Receiving: 20 Receptions, 182 Yards, 1 TD.
