2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Julius Thomas "very" limited Friday     -- Fri Nov 21 1:25 pm --

Ankle injury
Tight end Julius Thomas also returned to practice. Thomas was described as "very limited" and "shaky" by separate media folk, so right now we're more optimistic about Sanders playing than Thomas on Sunday vs. the Dolphins. (Mile High Report)

FF Today's Take: Head coach John Fox stated that while the listed Thomas as limited on Friday, he easily could've been classified as DNP. The Broncos tight end will be a gametime decision but all signs point to him being on the Inactive list Sunday. Jacob Tamme would fill Thomas' shoes and be low-end TE1 consideration.
Injury Sanders, Thomas sit Thursday at Broncos practice     -- Thu Nov 20 1:30 pm --

Broncos without two key receivers
Emmanuel Sanders and Julius Thomas were on the sideline at practice Thursday, just as they were on Wednesday, due to injuries suffered against the Rams last weekend. (ProFootball Talk)

FF Today's Take: Both players remain very questionable to play. While there's still a chance both could practice Friday and play on Sunday, owners should have backup plans in place. Jacob Tamme, Wes Welker and Andre Caldwell would see increased value if both sit.
Injury Julius Thomas' ankle injury not serious     -- Mon Nov 17 6:15 pm --

Day-to-day; appears to have avoided high ankle sprain
The early diagnosis is the ankle injury to Broncos TE Julius Thomas is not as bad as initially feared. Thomas injured his ankle in the first quarter of the Broncos' 22-7 loss at St. Louis on Sunday and did not return. He underwent a MRI Monday morning. It might be difficult for Thomas to play Sunday against the Miami Dolphins in the Broncos' first home game in a month, but his injury status is considered day-to-day. (Denver Post)

FF Today's Take: He appears to have avoided the dreaded "high ankle sprain", which is what was initially feared. Even with that bit of good news, the rash of injuries - including the concussion suffered by Emmanuel Sanders - comes at a bad time for Denver with Miami playing so well on defense lately. Thomas' owners in a pinch could opt for Peyton Manning favorite Jacob Tamme, although he is a replacement-level player at best at this stage of his career.
Wes Welker suspended four games     -- Tue Sep 2 7:07 pm --

Use of amphetamines
Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker has been suspended four games for use of amphetamines, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Welker was excused from practice Aug. 20-21 to attend his appeal hearing, sources told ESPN Senior NFL Analyst Chris Mortensen. (ESPN)

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.
