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.
FF Today's Take:Devin Hester is expected to be active at WR but Hankerson's absence has typically meant more work for tight end Jacob Tamme. Tamme will be a low-end TE1 against the Bucs. Shayne Graham will handle the kicking duties.
