2015 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Dec-12-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 14 DFS Update (12/12): Tamme hasn't scored in his last four games and he only has one TD in his 11 games played. This season he only has one game of value (10/103/1), which was against Tampa. Over the last eight games he is averaging seven targets per game. Carolina is just below league average in TE Fantasy defense, with one team scoring over 20 Fantasy points (60/647/5). Solid pass catcher when he flies under the radar, but Panthers will be ready for him this week.
Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Tamme caught five of his six targets for 69 yards last week vs. the Vikings. Over the last seven games he has three games with double-digit targets and a TD, while averaging 7.4 targets per game. He has one impact game (10/103/1), which caught the Bucs off guard in Week 8. Tampa is 18th in the league in TE Fantasy defense, with two teams scoring over 25 Fantasy points and four TDs allowed to TEs. The Bucs will give him a lot more attention this week so I would tame your expectations.
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.
