RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

When appearing in featured roles, Tamme has proven capable of posting very serviceable fantasy numbers, catching 67 and 52 passes from Peyton Manning in 2010 and 2012, respectively, in Indianapolis and Denver. When relegated to backup duty, as was the case last year with the emergence of Julius Thomas, Tamme has put up less than inspiring production, snagging a mere 20 passes on 25 targets for 184 yards in 2013. Under contract for another season with the Broncos, the 29-year-old Tamme's contributions will be directly tied to the health of Thomas.

2013

Concern entering last season that Tamme would split targets with fellow tight end Joel Dreessen proved well-founded, as Peyton Manning used both often but in different ways. Unfortunately for Tamme, while he dominated the targets, 85 to 58, he missed out in the red zone, seeing only six targets to Dreessen's 14. That left Tamme with only two touchdowns last season. Tamme isn't the fastest runner but has always been known for his hands and was a good weapon for Manning, who could hit him in a small window as Tamme came out of his break. But Tamme will again share targets with Dreessen, and the addition of Wes Welker in the slot is likely to cut further into Tamme's opportunities.

2012

The Broncos signed Tamme in March, re-uniting him with Peyton Manning. Tamme made a splash in 2010 for the Colts after starter Dallas Clark went down with a season-ending injury. Mostly to Manning’s credit, Tamme became the fantasy pickup of the season among tight ends, totaling 631 receiving yards and four touchdowns. Not the fastest tight end, Tamme does have good hands, which led to a 72-percent catch rate that season. For an idea of Tamme’s potential, his 2010 numbers, prorated over 16 games, would equal 1,009 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. But don’t expect such lofty numbers even if Tamme wins the starting job. First, Joel Dreesen, who scored 10 touchdowns over the last two seasons with Houston, also signed with the Broncos, creating the prospect of a timeshare. And, of course, Manning has much to prove health-wise. Given his history with Manning, Tamme should have the upper hand at the position heading into camp, but that could change before Week 1.

2011

Tamme become one of the best fantasy pickups of last season after Dallas Clark sustained a season-ending wrist injury in Week 6. Tamme utilized his speed on quick routes to catch the ball on the run. As a result, he recorded 319 YAC, a lofty number considering he started only 11 games. Tamme finished with 631 receiving yards and four touchdowns, but he'll go back to reserve duty this season with the return of Clark, who had offseason wrist surgery. Tamme might have earned a bigger role in the offense for this season, but his ceiling is limited unless Clark goes down again.

2010

Had three catches last year and will back up at H-back, tight end and special teams.

2009

Tamme is the backup halfback for the Colts behind Gijon Robinson. It is unlikely that Tamme will get playing time in 2009, as the Colts are impressed with the progress that Robinson has made, starting almost every game for the Colts in 2008. Still, Tamme has perhaps the best receiving ability after Dallas Clark among the tight ends, so there's upside here if he finds playing time.

2008

Tamme is a skilled pass catcher who could see a few snaps in 2008, though not near enough to give him any fantasy value. His only potential would be tied to a Dallas Clark injury.
