Denver Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme scored a touchdown in Week 1 vs. Pittsburgh. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

On Sunday versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme put on a solid performance in the Week 1 victory. Tamme had five grabs for 43 yards and a touchdown against Pittsburgh. The Broncos new tight end looked like a reliable target for Peyton Manning, helping secure the win.

Fantasy Analysis: Tamme carries over his relationship with Manning from Indianapolis, and it showed in Week 1. The Denver tight end is used primarily as a receiving target, and could be in for a breakout year with the Broncos. Primarily because of Manning, Tamme has growing fantasy value. He was a mid-to-late rounder in most drafts, but could prove to be a steal. Look for Tamme to have consistent, as a sure-fire starter week-to-week in most fantasy leagues.
