Tamme is a good TE, but certainly won't match Gates' ability. You do have a chance for double digit each week with Tamme, and he is winning the confidence of his QB and O coordinator.
Gates was best when the star receivers were healthy, and no matter what, he gets his targets, especially in the red zone. With V Jax set to return in a couple weeks, and Naanee and Floyd close to healthy, defenses are going to have their hands full and that will leave Gates open to continue rolling.
I think what hampers DMC is the number of scoring ops he gets moving forward. Oak has Bush and even Reece as options to run it in. I think DMC will continue to get stronger as the season goes though.
Injuries are a major concern, especially the plantar fascia, but I just wonder if you can't get anything more for Gates right now than DMC. At 8-1 you have the luxury of waiting out a couple rough weeks in case Gates is around 75% after the bye, which is what I would suspect. Personally, I would shop for a better deal at RB.
Please take a look for me; post if you think you can helpviewtopic.php?t=485078
