Falcons | Atlanta won't force the ball to Julio Jones

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 10:04:13 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones only has 13 targets through two games this season after recording 204 last year, and offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan doesn't appear interested in changing that approach anytime soon. Six Falcons have four or more receptions through the first two games, while TE Jacob Tamme has two more catches and three more targets than Jones. "You really hope (Jones) is one-on-one, but it's nice when he's not and he's got some bad looks, there's a lot of other opportunities out there (for the other players). … You don't have to force it into tough looks. You can go where the coverage tells you. … You might not have the same numbers for (Jones) and stuff, but I think the result ends up improving the offense," Shanahan said.

Fantasy Tip: Shanahan has a long history of feeding his top receiver, so this is quite the departure from the norm for him. As nice as he makes it sound, however, defenses are going to be content with the Falcons trying to beat them with Mohamed Sanu and Tamme as opposed to Jones, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Even with a slightly reduced target share this season, Jones is still a weekly WR1.

Falcons | Levine Toilolo might not make roster

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 16:14:43 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Levine Toilolo is listed as the third tight end on the team's roster, behind TEs Jacob Tamme and rookie Austin Hooper. Toilolo is competing with TEs D.J. Tialavea, Joshua Perkins and Arthur Lynch to seal up a spot on the Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Even if he does crack the roster, he'll offer minimal value at best. Toilolo has exhibited flashes before, albeit small ones, but amongst the current group of tight ends, it would be hard to see him vault up to the starting spot again. Tamme performed well after coming over to Atlanta a year ago, so he'll be the tight end to watch in that offense.

Falcons | Jacob Tamme expected to play

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 11:07:37 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme (back) practiced in full for the second straight day Friday, Dec. 18, and is probable to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: The Jaguars are an excellent fantasy matchup for tight ends (16.1 PPR fantasy points per game allowed), so Tamme ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) qualifies as a sleeper for daily lineups in Week 15.

Falcons | Jacob Tamme has full practice

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 14:37:59 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme (back) put in a full practice Thursday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Tamme ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was limited yesterday, so it looks like he'll be able to play after the upgraded status today. That being said, Tamme has done next to nothing in recent weeks, but he does have a tremendously favorable matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He's not the worst option at tight end this week.

Falcons | Jacob Tamme limited in practice

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 14:29:48 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme (back) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Tamme ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has exactly 26 yards receiving in each of the last two weeks, leaving much to be desired. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a top-five doormat for tight ends in fantasy this year, though, so look to him as an under-the-radar play if you're looking to go cheap at the position.

Falcons | Julio Jones, Jacob Tamme probable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 10:56:34 -0800

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (knee) and TE Jacob Tamme (shoulder) both practiced in full Friday, Dec. 11, and are probable to face the Carolina Panthers in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) is a bust candidate in daily games while going up against shutdown corner Josh Norman. Tamme ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is a midrange tight end pick on FantasyScore against a top defensive unit.

Falcons | Jacob Tamme, Matt Bryant limited

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 13:29:42 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme (shoulder) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec.10.

Fantasy Tip: Tamme (4,600, 9.2% of cap) should still play but he doesn't have the most favorable matchup against the Carolina Panthers. Bryant has not been available the last two games, so you may want to consider another kicker in seasonal leagues.

Falcons | Jacob Tamme, Matt Bryant limited

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 16:39:38 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme (shoulder) and PK Matt Bryant (quadriceps) were both limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Fantasy Tip: Tamme ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be available to play against the Carolina Panthers this weekend, but the matchup suggests you should look elsewhere for your tight end. Bryant has missed the last two games and should be left to the waiver wire in traditional leagues.

Falcons | Big game for Jacob Tamme

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 16:25:44 -0800

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme had 10 catches for 103 yards and a touchdown in a 23-20 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Tamme ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) topped 100 yards and scored a touchdown for the first time this year, and he has been more involved in the offense recently, logging at least five targets in four straight games. He is worth keeping an eye on to see if he can build on his big Week 8 performance.

Falcons | Jacob Tamme has game-high yardage

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 20:08:21 -0700

Atlanta Falcons TE Jacob Tamme had eight receptions for a game-high 94 yards in the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins. He was targeted 10 times.

Fantasy Tip: The Falcons saw something they liked about Washington's coverage on tight ends, as they worked all game to exploit that. It won't be often Tamme ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) outgains Julio Jones. Still, if he and Matt Ryan continue to click he could be a solid low-end FantasyScore option going forward.
