ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure believes third-year TE Levine Toilolo has had an "impressive" camp.
TEs coach Wade Harman echoes the sentiment. "I think he's got a little more confidence going," Harman said. "I know he spent a lot of time in the offseason just working on his hands and just being confident that he can do it." Completely invisible through his first two NFL seasons — aside from some brutal drops — Toilolo caught three passes for 36 yards in Atlanta's preseason opener. Toilolo has never eclipsed 36 yards in a regular season game. Despite the supposed improvement, Toilolo isn't on the TE2 radar. Aug 18 - 5:48 PM

ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure sees Levine Toilolo playing more of a complementary role in 2015.

Toilolo ran more pass routes than Rob Gronkowski in 2014 but only caught 31 balls for 238 yards. That's trainwreck status. Toilolo also struggled as a blocker. The Falcons' best course of action would be to add a tight end in free agency and slide Toilolo into a limited-snap role. Julius Thomas, Jordan Cameron, and Charles Clay are the top tight ends on the market.

Levine Toilolo caught two passes for 14 yards in the Falcons' Week 17 loss to the Panthers.

Mainly a blocker, Toilolo wraps up his sophomore season with 31 catches for 238 yards and two touchdowns. Some pegged Toilolo as a potential sleeper who was filling Tony Gonzalez's shoes, but Toilolo predictably was kept in an inline-blocking role. He'll come back to fill the same role in 2015. Expect the Falcons to try and find a pass-catching tight end for Matt Ryan this offseason.

Levine Toilolo caught four passes for 15 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Cardinals.

Toilolo hit his ceiling as he caught a 1-yard touchdown from Matt Ryan on the game-opening drive. The mountainous yet stiff tight end now has two touchdowns and 23 catches on the year.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 07:34:00 PM

Levine Toilolo caught 3-of-6 passes for 34 yards in Atlanta's Week 6 loss to the Bears.

The yards were Toilolo's most of the season, but all three of his missed connections were drops, two of them brutal. Toilolo hasn't scored since Week 1. He's miles from fantasy relevance in any format.

Levine Toilolo finished Week 5 without a catch.

The blocker was targeted twice and has no fantasy value.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 05:18:00 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.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 08:41:00 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.

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.
Sun, Sep 14, 2014 06:21:00 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.
Sun, Sep 7, 2014 06:01:00 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.

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.

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.
Wed, Jul 23, 2014 10:01:00 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.
Tue, May 27, 2014 10:53:00 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.
