Jacob Tamme secured 5-of-6 targets for 69 yards in the Falcons' Week 12 loss to the Vikings.
Tamme has been the Falcons' primary checkdown pass catcher whenever Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) has been inactive this season. That continued on Sunday as Tamme led Atlanta in receiving while Xavier Rhodes put clamps on Julio Jones (5-56). If Hankerson misses Week 13 against the Buccaneers, Tamme will remain one of the top TE1 streamer plays on the board. Nov 29 - 4:18 PM

Jacob Tamme caught 1-of-3 targets for 16 yards in the Falcons' Week 11 loss to the Colts.

Tamme has been a non-factor when Leonard Hankerson has played this season, and that remained the case in Sunday's loss to Indianapolis. Tamme will be a poor streamer option when the Falcons host the Vikings in Week 12.
Nov 22 - 5:31 PM

Jacob Tamme secured 6-of-10 passes for 61 yards in the Falcons' Week 9 loss to San Francisco.

Although he didn't go berserk like last week, Tamme paid dividends as a TE1 streamer for the second straight game. Whenever Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) misses time, Tamme steps into Atlanta's No. 2 pass-option role. Hankerson is tentatively expected to return after the Falcons' Week 10 bye.
Nov 8 - 7:38 PM

Jacob Tamme soaked up 10 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in the Falcons' Week 8 loss to the Buccaneers.

The 103 yards he posted were his most since 2010 when he tallied 108 yards in a Week 9 loss to Philadelphia. He served as Matt Ryan’s primary check-down man, gobbling up catches left and right. Nobody benefited more from Leonard Hankerson’s absence than Tamme. Calling him a TE1 is probably a stretch, but with Ryan throwing to him, Tamme is going to have some productive games. The Falcons head to San Francisco for Week 9.
Nov 1 - 5:15 PM

Jacob Tamme caught 3-of-6 targets for 36 yards in Week 7 against the Titans.

Tamme played a bigger role with Leonard Hankerson sidelined, but didn't do much with his targets. He's nothing more than a low-end TE2. Tamme has a matchup with the Bucs in Week 8.
Oct 25 - 5:26 PM

Jacob Tamme caught 3-of-5 targets for 32 yards in Atlanta's Week 6 loss to the Saints.

Tamme came up huge in last Sunday's win over the Redskins, but 3/32 should be a typical line going forward. He's a low-end TE2 best utilized as a punt play in DFS leagues.
Oct 16 - 12:22 AM

Jacob Tamme secured 8-of-10 targets for 94 yards in the Falcons' Week 5 win over the Redskins.

Tamme went to the half as Atlanta's leading receiver with seven catches for 79 yards in the first two quarters. He managed one reception after halftime, but made repeated clutch catches to keep the chains moving while Julio Jones, Roddy White, and Leonard Hankerson made little to no first-half impact. Tamme will be a low-end streamer option when Atlanta faces New Orleans on Thursday night.
Oct 11 - 4:26 PM

Falcons TE Jacob Tamme (concussion) is practicing in full for Week 5.

Tamme won't be a viable TE2 against the Redskins.
Oct 8 - 4:38 PM

Jacob Tamme (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

He's on the right track to return Week 5, but Tamme isn't on the fantasy radar.
Oct 7 - 1:51 PM

Jacob Tamme (concussion) is out for Week 4 against the Texans.

He's still in the league's concussion protocol. Levine Toilolo will fill in at tight end Sunday against Houston. He's not a fantasy asset.
Oct 2 - 1:57 PM

Jacob Tamme (concussion) did not practice on Thursday.

He's in the league's concussion protocol. Tamme will need to pass a baseline cognitive exam before being cleared for Sunday's game against the Texans. If he's not, we'd expect Levine Toilolo to start in his place. Neither are appealing fantasy options.
Oct 1 - 2:15 PM

Jacob Tamme (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

Tamme is in the concussion protocol. Levine Toilolo will start if Tamme doesn't get cleared.
Sep 30 - 7:21 PM

Jacob Tamme exited Sunday's Week 3 game against the Cowboys with a concussion.

He's out for the rest of the game. Tamme went down after making an eight-yard catch in the second quarter. Levine Toilolo will pick up Tamme's snaps.
Sep 27 - 2:10 PM

Jacob Tamme caught 4-of-6 passes for 77 yards in the Falcons' Week 2 win over the Giants.

The defense forgot about Tamme on his 41-yard reception in the second half. It was the longest catch of his career. Tamme is going to catch more passes than Levine Toilolo did last season, but is not a viable TE2.
Sep 20 - 7:11 PM

Jacob Tamme caught all three of his targets for 19 yards in the Falcons' Week 1 win over the Eagles.

Tamme had a quiet training camp and preseason and wasn't much of a factor Monday night. He can be left on waiver wires across the board in redraft leagues.
