2015 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs


Twice in the past five years, Tamme had delivered reasonable Fantasy success. He caught 67 passes for 631 yards and four scores in 2010. He then caught 52 passes for 555 yards and two touchdowns in 2012. Since then, Jacob spent the past two seasons as a backup for the Denver Broncos, catching a combined 34 passes for just 293 yards and three TDs. The Falcons barely used their TEs in 2014 (33 catches, 276 yards and two touchdowns in total). Ryan completed many more passes to his tight ends in 2012 and 2013, but Tony Gonzalez isn't walking back through that door. Tamme isn't elite, but he can be a solid pass catcher when asked. I could see him catching 40 balls this season. However, he's pretty much just a bye-week replacement and a TE2 in Fantasy.

Latest Update

Sep-03-15 Falcons TE Jacob Tamme injuries back in preseason finale

Atlanta Falcons tight end Jacob Tamme injured his back in Thursday's game. He took a brutal shot to his lower back and stayed down for a while. He finally ended up walking off on his own. He is penciled in as the TE1, but his status and role moving forward is undetermined.

Fantasy Analysis:

Tamme has been nothing short of disappointing at training camp. The fact that he was playing tonight isn't great news. Don't be shocked if he loses his starting job. Remember the name Tony Moeaki. He's always been talented by can't stay healthy. If he can stay on the field, he's a fantasy sleeper.
