Jacob Tamme TE ATL 2 months ago

Tamme has an early lead in the Falcons' tight end competition, Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Tamme signed with Atlanta after spending the previous three years with the Broncos and appears to be the favorite to start at tight end in the early going. While he was stuck playing behind Julius Thomas in his last two seasons with Denver, Tamme still has had two seasons in his career with 50-plus receptions and would bring some veteran experience to the Falcons' offensive attack. Fellow offseason acquisition Tony Moeaki has also impressed head coach Dan Quinn early on, while last season's starter Levine Toilolo appears to be destined for a blocking role in 2015.

The Falcons have signed Tamme, the team's official site reports.

Tamme, who recorded 14 catches for 109 yards with two touchdowns with Denver this past season, gives the Falcons, who started Levine Toilolo at tight end in 2014, added depth at the position, along with fellow newcomer Tony Moeaki, who also signed with the team on Thursday.

Tamme (ribs) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Bengals.

With fellow TE Julius Thomas back in the Broncos' mix, Tamme is off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of formats. He's recorded just one catch in each of the last three games he has played in.

Tamme (ribs) is probable for Monday's game against Cincinnati.

Tamme practiced all week, so his rib issue is a very minor one. Other than a fluky 10-target game against St. Louis about five weeks ago, Tamme hasn't had a reliable role in the Denver offense, however.

Tamme (ribs) was limited at practice Thursday, ESPN.com reports.

Tamme (ribs) did not practice Thursday, ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports.

With Julius Thomas poised to be a contributor in the Broncos' Week 15 offense, Tamme's status for Sunday's game against the Chargers is of more import to the Broncos' depth at tight end than it is to fantasy owners.

Tamme (ribs) had one catch on one target for 10 yards during Sunday's win over the Bills.

Starting tight end Julius Thomas was active for the game, but he was unable get off the sideline due to his ankle injury. Unfortunately, Tamme failed to take advantage, catching only one pass for the third consecutive game. At this point, he's just too unreliable in nearly any fantasy league, even with a hobbled Thomas.

As is Julius Thomas, which limits Tamme's fantasy upside Sunday, in any case.
