Broncos | Jacob Tamme has solid workout

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 12:29:25 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Jacob Tamme caught several touchdown passes during organized team activities Monday, June 16. Tamme is still an important part of the offense's plans as a flexed tight end.

Fantasy Tip: Tamme isn't worth a draft pick, but a Julius Thomas injury would make him a worthy waiver wire target.

Broncos | Could have TE rotation

Sun, 24 Nov 2013 06:12:30 -0800

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas (knee) is 50-50 to play in Week 12. If he can't go, they will rotate TEs Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen to pick up the slack. If the team is forced to run more in inclement weather, TE Virgil Green could see significant time to block.

Broncos | Joel Dreessen not expected to play

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 11:13:57 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Joel Dreessen (knee) is not expected to play in the team's Week 1 game Thursday, Sept. 5, so TEs Julius Thomas, Jacob Tamme and Virgil Green will play. Thomas is expected to start and see the majority of snaps in single tight end sets, two-back sets or three-wide sets.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is a sneaky waiver-wire addition to fortify the depth of your tight end core before Week 1. Thomas' value will likely be tied to the health of Dreessen all season, but he has more upside in an offense that will be explosive. He should be seen as a TE2 with the talent to perform as a low-end TE1 many weeks.

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 08:54:25 -0700

Broncos | Julius Thomas, Virgil Green have opportunities

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 15:08:24 -0700

Updating a previous item, Denver Broncos TEs Julius Thomas and Virgil Green are getting increased repetitions with the first-team offense in training camp this week with TEs Joel Dreessen (knee) and Jacob Tamme (quadriceps) injured. Thomas was drafted in the fourth round in 2011, compared to the seventh round for Green. Thomas has been playing as a receiving tight end while Green has been playing more at the line of scrimmage. Thomas' blocking has improved since he was drafted, and he started with the No. 1 offense last weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas or Green could start the season seeing significant time alongside Tamme if Dreessen isn't ready for Week 1. However, because of Tamme's receiving experience, neither will likely see enough targets to become fantasy relevant until beyond 2013.

Broncos | Jacob Tamme's stats expected to dip

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 10:19:52 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Jacob Tamme doesn't figure to have as many passes thrown his way as last year, chiefly because of WR Wes Welker's arrival.

Fantasy Tip: Joel Dreessen's presence had already limited Tamme's ceiling to that of a "sometimes" No. 2 tight end, and barring an injury to another key member of this passing cache, not much will change from 2012

Broncos | Joel Dreessen had offseason surgery

Thu, 30 May 2013 14:48:57 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Joel Dreessen (knee) underwent offseason arthroscopic surgery on his knee and will miss the rest of the team's offseason workouts, including the mandatory minicamp in June. TE Julius Thomas will see increased repetitions in the absence of Dreessen.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Dreessen should be ready for training camp in July. Jacob Tamme will likely continue to be Peyton Manning's main tight end weapon in the passing game again this year. Dreessen and Thomas will likely only gain value in fantasy leagues if Tamme is injured.

Broncos | Jacob Tamme happy with Wes Welker addition

Sun, 05 May 2013 11:49:53 -0700

Denver Broncos TE Jacob Tamme said he is happy that the team added WR Wes Welker this offseason and is not worried about how his production could be affected. "People ask me, 'Is it going to affect you?' All that sort of stuff," Tamme said. "I never really worried much about all that. Wes is awesome. It's great to have him here. It's been great to get to know him the past few days. He's going to be a great addition to our team. We have a lot of guys that can do a lot of different things. I'm going to do whatever they ask me to do."

Broncos | Jacob Tamme key to offense

Wed, 26 Dec 2012 04:44:08 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning credits TE Jacob Tamme for much of the offense's success this season. Tamme's ability to play both tight end and slot receiver makes him a matchup problem for opposing defenses. "So much for us, in what we do, is how do they play Tamme," Manning said. "Some teams treat him like a receiver and some teams treat him like a tight end, so you kind of find that out, see how they handle him in the formation. He kind of makes them, the way he plays and how he plays, have that discussion and we see where that takes us."

Broncos | Jacob Tamme is a key on offense

Tue, 25 Dec 2012 06:15:43 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said that TE Jacob Tamme is a key to the Broncos offense, because how defenses play the tight end speaks to what defenses are trying to do. "So much for us, in what we do, is how do they play Tamme," Manning said. "Some teams treat him like a receiver and some teams treat him like a tight end, so you kind of find that out, see how they handle him in the formation. He kind of makes them, the way he plays and how he plays, have that discussion and we see where that takes us."

Broncos | Tight ends playing big role

Sat, 24 Nov 2012 07:25:53 -0800

Denver Broncos tight ends have caught 64 passes this season, already more than in any season since 2008. TE Jacob Tamme has 34 receptions for 312 yards and a touchdown, while TE Joel Dreessen has 27 catches for 250 and four touchdowns. Tamme and Dreessen both run well, allowing either to also set up as a slot receiver, or even occasionally as a wideout. "Dreessen and Tamme can play (multiple positions), and that's a big part of our offense," QB Peyton Manning said. "In certain progressions, those guys are the first read. Coach (Mike) McCoy's done a good job of utilizing those guys, trying to get those guys in (favorable) matchups. Mike tries to move those guys around."
