Jacob Tamme |Denver Broncos | TE
2013 Experience: 6th Season
|Twitter News||Team Schedule|
Fantasy Football Outlook: While Tamme proved to be a worthy bye week to matchup play fill in option last year, we shouldn’t look to him for the same help this season. With Wes Welker on the team, Manning will have a new favorite in he middle of the field on short to intermediate routes.
At the same time, Tamme is better as a move tight end and not so much as an inline player, which means he will have a hard time staying on the field, as the Broncos will be in 11 personnel (three receivers, one running back, one tight end) most of the time.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
Now in Denver, Jacob Tamme is reunited with his old quarterback Peyton Manning. Tamme filled in well a few years back when Dallas Clark was injured, and he will serve as the joker tight end in this offense.
While the Broncos have two talented outside receivers in Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas, I question their overall receiving depth, and this could mean Tamme is on the field more often.
His current ADP trends as the 8th tight end (8.03, 12 team) may be a little high in standard leagues, but it could be fair in PPR leagues . Tamme will be active in the offense, but he’s not a game breaking tight end, nor is he an inline tight end, that will play a majority of snaps.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
The Colts were seemingly in trouble when they lost Dallas Clark for the season with a wrist injury but Jacob Tamme stepped in and had a strong second half of the season, catching 67 passes. Clearly Tamme has earned a bigger role, but he won’t be close to a fantasy option with Clark back this season.
If anything should happen to Clark that would make him miss time, Tamme would be an instant addition off the waiver wire and you would be able to start him right away. Consider Tamme a great, hand cuff tight end (feels weird saying that for a tight end) to Clark at the end of your draft this summer.
