It was certainly a wild game on Sunday night between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots, but Jacob Tamme was still able to have a very respectable performance.

Even though the Broncos lost 34-31 in overtime, Tamme had his best game of the season.  He caught five passes for 47 yards and a touchdown, giving him 10 fantasy points in ESPN's standard scoring leagues.

However, before this game, Tamme wasn't very involved in the offense.  He had just three receptions for 27 yards and zero touchdowns, only putting up one total fantasy point, which came in Week 8 against the Washington Redskins.

The only reason Tamme played so much this week was due to Julius Thomas' injury.  Thomas was a game-time decision to play on Sunday Night Football, but he was unable to give it a go.  

If you are thinking about adding Tamme to your fantasy team, you shouldn't do it, even if Thomas isn't able to go next week.  He's involved so little in the offense that it will be very difficult for him to have another solid game, and there are so many other more talented tight ends out there that you could pick up instead.  This was one game, and the fact that he had just one fantasy point before this game should steer you away from him.
