Tamme caught one ball for a 17-yard touchdown in Sunday's overtime loss to the Chargers. Tamme only caught one ball on the day, but he made the most of it. He hasn't tallied more than 30 receiving yards in any of his last five games, but he does have three touchdowns on the year, giving him some value in certain leagues.
Tamme caught two balls for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. This was Tamme's fourth straight game under 30 yards receiving. He does have two touchdowns in six games, but the yards just haven't been there this season. He's in a great offense, but Matt Ryan spreads the ball around too much for Tamme to get consistent looks.
Tamme caught one ball for one yard in Sunday's win over the Broncos. Quarterback Matt Ryan leads the league in passing yards through five weeks, but he only looked Tamme's way once on Sunday. He's scored two touchdowns in five weeks, but this was his second game under five yards receiving, so he's certainly not a reliable option.
Tamme (hip) is active for Sunday's game at Denver, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. The Broncos' defense isn't to be trifled with in most circumstances, but tight ends have hauled in 20 of 31 passes for 233 yards against them this season. Nevertheless, Tamme's catch count has dipped in each successive game, settling on two in Week 4 against the Panthers.
Tamme (hip) practiced in full Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Tamme may have been contained to a limited practice Wednesday in order to allow his 31-year-old body to recover from a busy first quarter of the season. Earning 71.5 percent of the offensive snaps to date, he ranks second on the Falcons in receptions (16), targets (22), and touchdowns (two) behind the beast that is Julio Jones. However, with an average reception of 9.8 yards, he must keep the trust of Matt Ryan and/or reach the end zone in order to maintain his current status.
