Tamme is scheduled to get a second opinion Wednesday on the right shoulder he injured Oct. 30 against Green Bay. It's highly likely Tamme will then have surgery Thursday. Hooper likely takes over as the pass catching TE. He put up some decent fantasy numbers ... until last week against the Eagles where he had just one catch for eight yards and a couple of drops. In the two weeks before he caught a total of eight passes for 87 yards and a TD.

Following a tough road loss on Sunday, the Falcons get a chance to reset and get healthy this week.

The bye week comes at a perfect time as a few key players for Atlanta are dealing with significant injuries.

Tevin Coleman, Desmond Trufant and Jacob Tamme all missed the Falcons’ Week 10 contest and head coach Dan Quinn provided an update on their statuses on Monday.

“We expect [Tevin Coleman] to be fully participating in the Arizona week after the bye,” Quinn said. “Jacob Tamme will be out, he’s going to get a second opinion and consultation on a possible surgery for his shoulder. We are hopeful [Trufant] will be back practicing the Arizona week, as well. He’s improving with his shoulder.”

Falcons Beat: TE Jacob Tamme had 'a strong offseason'

Friday, June 17, 2016, 1:29pm

Atlanta-Journal Constitution - [Full Article]

Tight end Jacob Tamme had a strong offseason catching the ball and working on his blocking. His 59 catches last season were the second-highest total of his career.

“I really feel like my best years are still in front of me,” Tamme said. “Which is a good feeling to have at this point in my career. That’s an exciting thing for me.”

He believes the offense made some major strides.

“I feel like I’m well ahead of where I was at this point last year,” Tamme said. “That’s something that I’m pretty jacked up about.”

Fantasy Impact:

Tamme finished #14 in PPR formats last year. The Falcons drafted his eventual replacement, Austin Hooper, but rookie tight ends rarely make much of an impact. Tamme may be streamable again in 2016.
