Date:

Levine Toilolo finished Week 5 without a catch.

The blocker was targeted twice and has no fantasy value.
Oct 5 - 5:18 PM

Levine Toilolo caught one pass for 12 yards in the Falcons' Week 4 loss to Minnesota.

Toilolo was targeted just two times. After the Falcons lost three starting offensive linemen to injury in this one, Toilolo was actually forced to play right tackle for much of the fourth quarter. He's on pace for a weak 32-276-4 line through four games. Toilolo is obviously not on the fantasy radar.
Sep 28 - 8:41 PM

Levine Toilolo caught 2-of-2 targets for 25 yards in Atlanta's Week 3 win over the Bucs, also losing a fumble.

Toilolo nearly killed the Falcons' second drive by letting the ball get punched out from behind, but the Falcons got it back after Devin Hester forced a fumble of his own on Mark Barron's return. Toilolo wasn't targeted in the red zone this evening even though Atlanta scored 56 points. Toilolo is Joseph Fauria 2.0 for fantasy purposes.
Sep 19 - 12:28 AM

Levine Toilolo caught 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards in Atlanta's Week 2 loss to the Bengals.

Toilolo's third target was a tipped ball that resulted in a Matt Ryan interception. Toilolo is a touchdown-dependent fantasy hail mary.
Sep 14 - 6:21 PM

Levine Toilolo caught three passes for 19 yards and a touchdown against the Saints Week 1.

The Falcons exclusively used Toilolo underneath, with all of his targets coming within ten yards of the line of scrimmage. That usage will prevent Toilolo from turning into a reliable starting option, but his ability in the red zone makes him a good flier TE2 against Bengals Week 2.
Sep 7 - 6:01 PM

Levine Toilolo was not targeted in Saturday's preseason game against the Titans.

Toilolo was split wide a few times in addition to his usual in-line role, but Matt Ryan never even looked his way. Toilolo has two catches for 19 yards in the preseason and is only on the TE2 radar in the deepest of leagues. He's too stiff at 6'8/265.
Aug 23 - 10:00 PM

Falcons TE Levine Toilolo caught two passes for 19 yards in Atlanta's preseason opener Friday night.

He secured 2-of-3 targets. We're not big on Toilolo's fantasy prospects as a slow-moving plodder tight end, but it was good to see him involved in the passing game with the first-team offense. Toilolo could be worth rostering as a TE2 in particularly TD-heavy leagues. He stands 6-foot-8 and 265 pounds.
Aug 8 - 9:14 PM

The Falcons plan to fill Tony Gonzalez's production by committee.

New starter Levine Toilolo is an in-line player not capable of doing Gonzoesque things. The Falcons will use three-wide sets as a base in an effort to highlight their strong wideout trio of Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas. They'll also throw to passing backs Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers more. Toilolo profiles as a red-zone specialist and low-volume player in terms of targets.
Jul 23 - 10:01 AM

Only 2.7 percent of Matt Ryan's 2013 throws targeted an in-line tight end, the lowest percentage in the league last year.

The stat is skewed because Tony Gonzalez so frequently aligned in the slot, but throwing to in-line or "Y" tight ends hasn't been a big part of OC Dirk Koetter's passing attack. The Falcons will play base-three-receiver offense with Gonzo retired, leaving Levine Toilolo to fill the in-line role. Expect Toilolo to see very limited volume, though he could contribute often in the red zone.
May 27 - 10:53 AM

Levine Toilolo is expected to be the Falcons' starting tight end this season after the team failed to draft one this weekend.

GM Thomas Dimitroff says whoever plays tight end in Atlanta is going to be "an inline player." That means Toilolo is going to be blocking most of the time, while the Falcons trot out more three-wide sets this season. Harry Douglas is going to be the main beneficiary here. Toilolo won't be a strong fantasy option.
May 11 - 10:31 AM

ESPN's Vaughn McClure does not believe the Falcons are looking for a starting tight end in the draft.

McClure fully expects Levine Toilolo to get the opportunity to run with Tony Gonzalez's old job. However, he concedes the passing offense will likely look different as the Falcons shift toward more three- and four-wide sets featuring Julio Jones, Roddy White and Harry Douglas. The slow-footed Toilolo (6'8/265) profiles as more of a blocker and red-zone option than pass-catching tight end.

Apr 21 - 9:34 AM

GM Thomas Dimitroff said Levine Toilolo's role going forward will be scheme dependent.

With Tony Gonzalez set to retire, Toilolo enters the offseason as the Falcons' No. 1 tight end. He's an intriguing red-zone threat at 6'8/260, but showed shaky hands and liabilities as a blocker in his rookie season en route to an 11/55/2 line. "Levine is going to be a good football player in this league," Dimitroff said. "Where he ends up in terms of the depth chart will have a lot to do with how we scheme and play our tight ends in the future." Without T-Gonz, the Falcons will likely be looking at more three- and four-wide formations featuring their wideouts.
Jan 13 - 8:25 AM

Falcons OC Dirk Koetter said he wants to get TE Levine Toilolo more playing time down the stretch in order to improve his blocking skills.

"At the end of the year here, we know Levine’s a player that we’re trying to ... Tony [Gonzalez] is not going to be here next year," said Koetter. "We know we’re going to try and get Levine some work." The Falcons are 3-9, so it's time to start looking at the young guys to see what they have for 2014. Gonzalez owners need to keep this in mind, though his snaps may not take a major hit.

Levine Toilolo is Tony Gonzalez's primary backup.

Toilolo is a fourth-round rookie out of Stanford that goes a monstrous 6'8/260. He can't run very well, but he's a red-zone target and is soaking up first-team practice reps as Gonzalez nurses a toe injury. Extreme deep leaguers can monitor the situation as Toilolo would make for a desperation plug-n-play if he starts. The only other threat is former Bengals bust Chase Coffman.
