Itís all about opportunity and Tamme got his in 2010 when Colts starting tight end Dallas Clark suffered a season-ending wrist injury. Over the final ten games of the season, Tamme caught 67 passes for 631 yards and four touchdowns, averaging 8.7 fantasy points per game over that stretch, which placed him third in that category amongst tight ends who played ten+ games behind only Antonio Gates and Jason Witten. He gets another solid opportunity in 2012 having signed with the Broncos as a free agent and joining former teammate Peyton Manning in Denver. He is getting pegged as a breakout candidate this season but youíre not getting a buy in on that here. He isnít anywhere near as talented as the upper echelon players at his position and Joel Dreessen isnít chump change as backups go. Tamme can be a solid contributor to your fantasy squad but he isnít worth reaching for and it looks like that is what will be going down on draft day. He shapes up as a lower tier starter or upper tier backup at this point.
Comment:Manning's offense has always favored the tight end and the philosophy shouldn't change in Denver. Tamme and Dreesen are in for a lot of targets this season with Tamme being the most attractive fantasy option.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker has been suspended four games for use of amphetamines, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

FF Today's Take:Welker will have plenty of time to get through the leagues' concussion protocol. The Broncos have a bye in Week 4 so the earliest Welker could return to the field would be Week 6. Emmanuel Sanders becomes legit WR2 option and keep in mind, the Broncos used tight end Jacob Tamme in the slot during Welker's absence last season.
