Jacob Tamme reeled in five of six targets for 69 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.
The veteran led the Atlanta 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.
Jacob 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 Atlanta 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.
Jacob 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.
Jacob Tamme reeled in 10 passes off of 12 targets for 103 yards and a score in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Tamme ran an intermediate out, caught the ball and traffic and landed in the end zone for his first score as a Falcon in the third quarter. Known best as Peyton Manning's securing blanket for most of his career, Tamme topped 100 yards on Sunday for the first time since Week 9 of the 2010 season. The performance didn't necessarily come out of nowhere as Tamme posted a eight-catch game in Week 5 during which he accumulated 94 yards and had a four-catch game in Week 2 where he totaled 77 yards. Tamme is a name worth monitoring in the free agency pool, especially if he finds the end zone a few more times.
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.
