Some good and bad news from Denver this morning in regards to the availability of injured players Emmanuel Sanders and Julius Thomas.
The good news is it looks like Emmanuel Sanders will pass the concussion protocol and be allowed on the field Sunday.
The bad news is that it looks like Julius Thomas is a game-time decision. I’m guessing that means the Broncos are likely going to hold Thomas out and that my friends, especially those that play in tight-end leagues, a real opportunity to do some damage this week by picking up Jacob Tamme.
2014 stats: 10 catches, 88 yards and 2 td’s
Yeah, I wouldn’t add him either but this might be the perfect one-week add to slap your opponent around with some creative thinking at the TE position.
Why should you add him?
1. Peyton Manning throws TD’s to his TE’s – 40-426, 12 td’s
2. Peyton Manning is familiar with Tamme and given the one-start situation, will likely go his way more than a few times.
3. Denver is a little banged up in the passing game with Emmanuel Sanders coming off that concussion. If I’m Miami I’m trying to shut down D. Thomas and that means free roaming of the middle for Tamme.
4. Denver has to be a little pissed after losing last week and I’m guessing that despite the injuries they come out and lay the wood to the Dolphins.
Love this pick up, and love it to pieces.
Yes, it’s only one week but won’t you look like the Super Genius when Tamme produces.
Sports Instigator predictions: 5-75, 2 td’s – Just saying!
