Joel Dreessen holds more fantasy value than Jacob Tamme in Week 14

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Joel Dreessen was the more prominent of the Broncos tight ends on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacob Tamme was the one stepping up over the last two weeks, but Joel Dreessen became the main man on Thursday night against the Raiders. Dreessen caught five passs for 30 yards and a touchdown while Tamme hauled in just two catches total.

Dreessen hadn't scored since Week 9. Week 14's touchdown marked his fifth of the season.

Fantasy Impact: There likely weren't many owners starting Dreessen after he didn't do much over the past two weeks. Tamme never quite had the breakout season we all expected, but he has come on strong in recent weeks.

If you did play Tamme, you playoff chances just took a hit. It's hard to pick which Broncos tight end will be the better from week to week.
