2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Its 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 youre not getting a buy in on that here. He isnt anywhere near as talented as the upper echelon players at his position and Joel Dreessen isnt chump change as backups go. Tamme can be a solid contributor to your fantasy squad but he isnt 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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Hankerson, Tamme among early standouts     -- Mon Aug 3 9:20 pm --

WR, TE turning heads in Atlanta
Two acquisitions that look especially good right now are WR Leonard Hankerson and TE Jacob Tamme. Hankerson has been the best wide receiver at Flowery Branch thus far. I think its the length, hes got such a big catching radius, new HC Dan Quinn said. Hes got such a knack for keeping it in bounds and going to stretch for the ball. Quinn likes what hes seen from Tamme, as well. The veteran TE impressed with numerous catches in high-traffic areas. "We're just trying to find ways to feature (Tamme). He's got a unique style of how to get open, where to go find it. I think there's a good rhythm with him with that," Quinn said. (atlantafalcons.com)

FF Today's Take: Roddy White has been limited with a knee ailment, but Atlanta has been consistent in hyping Hankerson this offseason. It should also be noted that Hankerson played for the Redskins when offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan held the same job in Washington. Tamme is shaping up as a potential high-upside TE2. Not only has Shanahan been able to get tight ends to produce in his offense, but the Falcons would like for one to emerge to diversify the offense like Tony Gonzalez did before his retirement.
Moeaki, Tamme competition expected at camp     -- Fri Jun 26 9:00 am --

Falcons looking for answers at tight end
The Falcons sought to upgrade the tight end position this offseason by signing Jacob Tamme and Tony Moeaki in free agency. Tamme received a two-year, $4 million contract with $400,000 guaranteed, while Moeaki, whos been often injured, received a modest one-year, $744,000 deal. The two are expected to compete for the role of top pass-catching tight end when training camp opens on July 31. (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

FF Today's Take: Levine Toilolo finished 37th among fantasy tight ends last season with a 31-238-2 stat line. The Falcons will role the dice with a consistently injured Moeaki and the veteran Tamme who last had fantasy relevance back in 2012 with Denver. Moeaki is the better athlete with the biggest fantasy upside of the three but his injury history and the WR-focused gameplan in Atlanta makes him undraftable even if he does win the starting job in camp.
