Tamme reeled in five of six targets for 69 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. The veteran led the Falcons in receiving yards Sunday as they struggled to move the ball against the stout Vikings defense. It was the third time in four games that Tamme has topped 60 receiving yards, illustrating his growing chemistry with Matt Ryan. Tamme remains a risky weekly option, however, with so many other mouths to feed on the Atlanta offense, and this will remain the case when they travel to take on the Buccaneers in Week 13.
Tamme caught one pass off of three targets for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts. Sunday snapped Tamme's five-game streak of at least five targets. The reduction in Tamme's role corresponded with Leonard Hankerson's most targets since Week 4 and and Roddy White's most targets of the season. In the week or so before the Falcons' bye, Tamme was emerging as a legitimate starting-caliber tight end. The Falcons' emphasis on its second and third receivers following the bye, however, should suspend those notions at least temporarily so that it can be determined whether the change was game-specific or Atlanta's offense's new look.
Tamme caught six passes off of 10 targets for 61 yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. Tamme has now been targeted 22 times over the past two weeks, totaling 16 catches. After averaging three catches for 35 yards in the season's first three games, Tamme has averaged six catches for 65 yards in Atlanta's past five contests. Tamme now ranks second or third on the team in every major receiving category. He's a consistent fantasy performer, especially in PPR leagues, but his lack of scores prevents him from being a top-tier option.
Falcons tight end Jacob Tamme caught three balls for 36 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans. Tamme was targeted six times on the day, good for second most on his team behind Julio Jones, who saw a whopping 17 targets. Although the targets are nice, Tamme has yet to find the endzone this season, and that hinders his fantasy value.
Tight end Jacob Tamme (concussion) led the Falcons with eight catches for 94 yards on 10 targets Sunday against the Redskins. The veteran tight end was heavily involved in the game plan alongside Julio Jones while secondary receivers Leonard Hankerson and Roddy White were marginalized. It's tough to see this level of volume as the beginning of a trend rather than a one-week quirk considering Tamme's unimpressive numbers coming into this contest.
