Tamme had a rather consistent 2015 season, but consistency and success aren't the same thing. He finished with between 16 and 36 receiving yards in seven of his 15 games, and only once did he top 100 yards. Anyone who started Tamme during his lone 100-plus-yard performance also benefited from his lone touchdown, but outside of that game against Tampa Bay, he struggled to make his mark in a decent offense. A second year in the offense and the fact that he'll be in a contract year in 2016 leads us to believe Tamme should improve on his 657-yard, one-touchdown season.
Jacob Tamme caught four balls for 29 yards in Sunday's win over the previously undefeated Panthers.
Tamme caught all four targets thrown his way, and two of his four receptions moved the chains. Tamme finishes the season against the Saints in Week 17. He recorded three catches for 32 yards when the two teams met earlier this season.
Jacob Tamme (back) is listed as active Sunday in Jacksonville.
The Atlanta Falcons ' offense has been nothing short of dreadful for the past month, and Tamme hasn't escaped the morass, accruing 13 catches (on 18 targets) for 137 yards over the past four outings. Although he's recorded just one touchdown in an otherwise resurgent season, he has a great chance to hit pay dirt against a Jaguars defense that has yielded six touchdowns to tight ends in the last five games.
Jacob Tamme (back) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in Jacksonville.
Tamme logged full practices Thursday and Friday, setting him up for his usual role in Sunday's favorable matchup. He has typically been the third option behind Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman in the Atlanta passing game, but the entire Atlanta Falcons offense has been abysmal in recent weeks.
Bumping his activity level from limited to full provides confidence that Tamme will be available Sunday at Jacksonville. He hasn't hit the end zone since Week 8, but an appealing matchup awaits against a Jaguars defense that has allowed 10 touchdowns to tight ends over the last eight games.
