Falcons Beat: Roddy White should 'bounce back in a big way' in Week 3

Friday, September 25, 2015, 11:39am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Falcons beat writer Vaughn McClure:

Something tells me Roddy White will be targeted more than once this week. Sure, Matt Ryan found himself a couple of nice new targets in Leonard Hankerson and Jacob Tamme, but the veteran White won’t be squeezed out of the equation. White might not be productive every week, but I expect him to bounce back in a big way after seeing his streak of consecutive games with a catch end at 128. White has 16 catches for 272 yards and a touchdown in three career matchups with the Cowboys, including two 100-yard receiving games.

Fantasy Impact:

We expect White to have a good game, especially since he was largely ignored in the offense against the Giants. The presence of Leonard Hankerson means that White may not produce every week, but he posted solid WR2 numbers when healthy last season and had a good Week 1.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) took limited practice reps again Friday. Ertz says he’ll be a game-time decision for Monday night. We would try to avoid using him this week, but some owners may not have that option. The Eagles play on Monday, so owners could look at Vernon Davis, Brent Celek or Jacob Tamme as potential wait-and-see options.

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (groin) took limited practice reps Thursday. Ertz remains “real limited” in practice, per HC Chip Kelly. We avoid starting him this week, but some owners may not have that option. The Eagles play on Monday night, so owners could look at Vernon Davis or Jacob Tamme as potential wait-and-see options.

Falcons Beat: TE Jacob Tamme can 'become a real threat'

Friday, July 24, 2015, 5:06pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Falcons TE Jacob Tamme, who spent his first seven NFL seasons primarily catching passes from Peyton Manning in Indianapolis and Denver, made an immediate impression with his pass-catching ability this offseason. He looks poised to come in and become a real threat in Kyle Shanahan's offense. It's hard to compare him to a guy such as future Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez, but Tamme can be the type of reliable pass-catcher the Falcons haven't had at the position since Gonzalez's retirement. The 6-foot-3-inch, 230-pound Tamme isn't going to overwhelm you with his size, but he finds a way to get open and is fluid with his routes.

Fantasy Impact:

Tamme is 30 years old and isn’t likely to be a fantasy factor in single-TE leagues, but he’s on the radar in two-TE or TE-premium (1.5 PPR) formats.

Broncos plan to use a committee at tight end

Wednesday, July 8, 2015, 2:49pm

Denver Broncos - [Full Article]

Owen Daniels and Virgil Green appear locked in on the top two spots, and depending on the frequency at which the Broncos use certain personnel groups, could both end up with play counts that reflect being starters. It was appropriate that their contracts were finalized within 24 hours of each other in free agency, because the two are best viewed as a collective as the Broncos work to build a deep tight end complement after Julius Thomas left for the Jaguars and Jacob Tamme joined the Falcons in free agency.

Fantasy Impact:

If both Daniels and Green play starter's snaps, then it's not going to leave much playing time for Cody Latimer as the team's WR3. Marlon Brown (40%) and Kamar Aiken (26%) didn't play enough to be fantasy relevant under Kubiak last year. However, things could change if Latimer makes a leap in training camp.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

Falcons TE Jacob Tamme lined up with the first team at Tuesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact:

Tamme could be stream-worthy in the Falcons' potent offense but he hasn't been very trustworthy throughout his career.

Falcons sign oft-injured TE Tony Moeaki

Thursday, March 19, 2015, 4:06pm

PFT - [Full Article]

The Falcons started the day by signing former Colt and Bronco Jacob Tamme, but they weren’t done adding players to compete with Levine Toilolo for playing time. The team announced that they have also signed former Chief, Bill and Seahawk Tony Moeaki on Thursday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact:

Moeki has talent but hasn't been able to stay out of the training room. The Falcons are looking to shore up the TE position and today's signings of Tamme and Moeaki give them a couple of veterans to lean on.

Falcons sign TE Jacob Tamme

Thursday, March 19, 2015, 3:43pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The effort to replace Tony Gonzalez continues in Atlanta as the Falcons announced Thursday they have signed tight end Jacob Tamme.

Fantasy Impact:

Tamme could be a stopgap option if the Falcons draft a tight end and wait for him to develop.
