Falcons backups get on the board Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Falcons backups made an impact Thursday against the Buccaneers.

With the team up by a ton, Atlanta started using their subs in the third quarter. Jacquizz Rodgers received five carries for 6 yards. Rodgers also caught a pass for 3 yards.

Eric Weems seemed to be the biggest beneficiary, hauling in four passes for 69 yards. Fullback Patrick DiMarco gained 35 yards on three catches. Levine Toilolo also contributed, catching two passes for 25 yards. Courtney Roby picked up 11 yards on one reception. 

They'll take on the Vikings Week 4. 


Bad drop Levine Toilolo's biggest contribution


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/14/2014) Falcons tight end Levine Toilolo, who scored a touchdown in his first game replacing the retired Tony Gonzalez in Week 1, didn't offer much Week 2 at Cincinnati, catching two passes for 13 yards.

He was targeted once more in the contest, but for the Falcons, it would have been better if he wasn't. An on-target pass from quarterback Matt Ryan early in the third quarter deflected off his hands and into the arms of a diving Leon Hall for an interception.

Toilolo will look to redeem himself Thursday night against the Buccaneers.


Some good, some bad for Levine Toilolo


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Falcons tight end Levine Toilolo, who will attempt to replace the now retired Tony Gonzalez in only his second NFL season, looked the part on a 12-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter and a 1-yard touchdown grab in the third. But the Falcons were missing Gonzalez's sure-handedness when Toilolo failed to make what would have been a first-down grab on second-and-6 midway through the fourth quarter.

The Falcons would go on to score a touchdown on that drive, but Toilolo wasn't much of a factor the rest of the way. In all, he was targeted six times, catching three passes for 19 yards and, of course, the touchdown.

Meanwhile, four Falcons wide receivers caught five passes or more for 65 yards or more, so Toilolo has plenty of competition for looks. He'll look to stay relevant Week 2 at Cincinnati.


Levine Toilolo bulks up


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Falcons tight end Levine Toilolo "added a lot of muscle in the offseason, especially to his upper body," reports the team's website. The 6-8 Toilolo played at 265 pounds last year. The website did not say how much Toilolo weighs now.

Toilolo figures to start now that Tony Gonzalez has retired. He won't get nearly as many passes thrown his way, but could become a red-zone factor. Toilolo caught 11 balls for 55 yards and two touchdowns last season while appearing in every game.


Falcons' tight ends not looking like Fantasy producers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2014) With the retirement of Tony Gonzalez, the Falcons are undergoing a change in philosophy about their tight end position, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. General manager Thomas Dimitroff said there weren't a lot of athletic pass-catching tight ends available in the draft, and the team will be more traditional in its 2014 approach.

Look for Atlanta's tight ends to line up on the line of scrimmage and block more. The team wants to be more physical up front.

"There’ll be a change in the type of tight end we’ll have on our roster," coach Mike Smith told the paper. "We’ll have a ‘Y’ tight end, where he’ll be an inline player (lined up tight to the formation). They won’t be moving around nearly as much as what we call an ‘F.’ Tony Gonzalez was more of an ‘F’ tight end than a ‘Y’ tight end."

Levine Toilolo, who had 11 catches as a rookie last year, and blocking tight end Bear Pascoe sit atop the depth chart.


Smith doesn't see Levine Toilolo as "scorer"


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/27/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith will no doubt miss Tony Gonzalez, who he referred to as a "scorer." His possible replacement, Levine Toilolo, won't be one, Smith intimated. 

"We talk all the time about having to have scorers and having assist men," Smith said. "The tight end position in the last five or six years has been filled by a guy that's a scorer. I think the person that will take that role moving forward will be an assist man and there will be a different skill set.

"Tony is a guy that's had 80-plus catches on average for us, so there's going to be a redistribution of who the ball is going to go to and we've got a couple of guys that we feel really good about at the wide receiver position. ... I think the role that the tight end (will have) is going from the scoring guy to the assist man or the set-up man."

Toilolo had just 11 catches last year behind Gonzalez but two were for touchdowns and the guy is a behemoth at 6-foot-8! But for now it looks like he will be a contributor, not a stat maven along the lines of Gonzalez. 


Tony Gonzalez high on potential replacement Levine Toilolo


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2014) Retired tight end Tony Gonzalez believes the sky's the limit for the Falcons' Levine Toilolo, a 6-8, 265-pounder who could step in for Gonzalez. "It’s going to be lights out with that guy because he’s that good of a player and he’s still going to get better," Gonzalez told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Two of Toilolo's 11 catches last season went for touchdowns.


How do Falcons replace Tony Gonzalez?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff is facing a gaping roster hole due to Tony Gonzalez's retirement.

"I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: Nobody replaces Tony Gonzalez,’’ Dimitroff said, per ESPN.com. "We’ve been very fortunate to have him on our team the last five years.

"As we continue to build this football team, we’re going to have to make sure that we have the right mix and the right amount of tight ends with blocking ability and tight ends with pass-catching ability. Every year, you’re going to find a unique mix of that talent, both on the free-agent side and the college side. And it’s no different this year.’’

The Falcons' remaining tight ends are  Levine Toilolo and Chase Coffman. Jermichael Finley, Dustin Keller and Dennis Pitta are among the tight ends scheduled to be unrestricted free agents.


Falcons get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) The Falcons got several minor offensive contributions in their 34-24 loss at San Francisco. Among them, running back Jason Snelling carried once for minus-2 yards, caught three passes for 15 yards and recovered an onside kick.

Fullback Patrick DiMarco caught a 2-yard pass, while tight end Levine Toilolo was targeted once without a catch.


Falcons trying to get more reps for Levine Toilolo


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2013) With the playoffs out of the picture for the Falcons, the last few weeks of the season will provide the coaching staff with a chance to evaluate some of the younger players. One of the players offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter wants to get involved more on offense is rookie tight end Levine Toilolo.

"At the end of the year here, we know Levine’s a player that we’re trying to (get more involved)," Koetter said, per ESPN. "Tony [Gonzalez] is not going to be here next year. We know we’re going to try and get Levine some work."


Falcons backup pass-catchers do little Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Falcons backup pass-catchers Darius Johnson, Levine Toilolo, Patrick DiMarco and Jason Snelling failed to do much Week 13 against the Bills.

Johnson played the largest role, catching two passes for 16 yards. He received four targets. Toilolo caught one pass for 12 yards. DiMarco also had one catch, but picked up just 5 yards. Snelling had one catch for 3 yards. They’ll take on the Packers Week 14.


Levine Toilolo, Josh Vaughan contribute


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Falcons tight end Levine Toilolo and running back Josh Vaughan both made small contributions Week 11 at Tampa Bay. Toilolo caught one pass for 6 yards. It was his first catch since Week 8 at Arizona. Vaughan had one carry for 1 yard and two catches for 7. They were his first contributions on offense all season.

Falcons backup pass catchers fail to do much against Arizona


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) Falcons fullback Patrick DiMarco and tight end Levine Toilolo failed to do much against the Cardinals Week 8.

DiMarco caught both of his targets for 13 yards. Toilolo had three catches for just 6 yards. Both players will look for more next week against the Panthers.


Levine Toilolo still plays minimal role


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2013) Though they discussed using more two-tight end sets with star wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White sidelined by injuries, the Falcons didn't give rookie tight end Levine Toilolo much action Week 7 against the Buccaneers. Toilolo, who plays mostly in goal-line sets and has two touchdown catches this season, didn't get a single target in the contest.

The Falcons visit the Cardinals in Week 8.


Levine Toilolo has chance to impress


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/15/2013) With the Falcons expected to run more two-tight end formations with wide receivers Julio Jones (foot) and Roddy White (ankle, hamstring) dealing with injuries, rookie tight end Levine Toilolo has a chance to make a legitimate impact Week 7 against Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers rank a modest 16th against the pass, allowing 247.8 yards per game, and have surrendered the ninth-most Fantasy points per game to tight ends. With fellow tight end Tonoy Gonzalez sure to draw double coverage as the Falcons' obvious top target, Toilolo could find himself open in the middle of the field from time to time. At 6-feet-8, he's already capitalized on his looks in the red zone, catching two touchdown passes this season.

Until we know what kind of effect Toilolo's increased role will have on his numbers, you should probably avoid him in Fantasy. But he has obvious sleeper appeal going forward. Dave Richard is willing to rank him 21st among tight ends for this week.


Falcons could use more double-TE formations


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2013) Falcons coach Mike Smith said the team might use more double-tight-end formations with Tony Gonzalez and Levine Toilolo, when the Falcons come off their bye in Week 7 vs. Tampa Bay.

"Levine had a great bounce-back game last week, from the week before," Smith said Thursday, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "I think he’s coming along like we anticipated. He’s going to be a very good threat, especially in the red zone. But yes, that would be an option for us as well."


Rookie Levine Toilolo scores second touchdown in three games


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2013) Falcons rookie tight end Levine Toilolo found the end zone for the second time in three weeks, catching a 3-yard touchdown from Matt Ryan in the fourth quarter against the Jets. Two of Toilolo's five catches this season have gone for scores.

A 6-8, 260-pounder out of Stanford, Toilolo would have a three-game scoring streak if he had not dropped a touchdown pass in Week 4. Toilolo finished Week 5 with two catches for 15 yards.

He'll play the Buccaneers in Week 7 after Atlanta returns from the bye.


Levine Toilolo has huge drop


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2013) Backup tight end Levine Toilolo dropped a perfect throw in the end zone in the fourth quarter of the Week 4 loss to New England. It would have been a 7-yard touchdown, but instead Atlanta settled for a field goal.

Toilolo caught his other target for 4 yards. He'll face the Jets in Week 5.


Levine Toilolo makes second career catch count for six


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:25 pm ET) Falcons rookie tight end Levine Toilolo made his second career catch count for six points during Sunday’s contest at Miami in Week 3.

Toilolo connected with Matt Ryan for a short, 2-yard touchdown catch early in the third quarter. It was his only catch and target of the afternoon. He has two catches for six yards this season.

Atlanta will host New England in Week 3.

Levine Toilolo makes first career catch


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2013) Playing his second ever game, Falcons tight end Levine Toilolo recorded his first ever catch Week 2 against the Rams. It was a 4-yarder.

Toilolo remains behind Tony Gonzalez on the depth chart heading into Week 3 at Miami.


Falcons GM impressed with Levine Toilolo


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said Wednesday it's been fun watching the development of rookie tight end Levine Toilolo. Dimitroff said Toilolo is a "really good" blocker.

Tall Toilolo 'hard to miss'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/6/2013) Falcons coach Mike Smith seemed to come away impressed with rookie tight end Levine Toilolo following minicamp in early May. Toilolo is officially the NFL's tallest tight end at 6-foot-8 and could be a red-zone asset for the Falcons as soon as this season. “He’s hard to miss out there," Smith said according to the official team website. "He did a nice job in improving his understanding and his route running. I thought he caught the ball well. ... Obviously, his efficiency in the red zone is well documented. To throw the ball to a guy in the red zone, you want to make sure he’s going to catch the ball. I think that kind of says what kind of hands he has."

Toilolo added by Falcons


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/2/2013) The Falcons selected Stanford tight end Levine Toilolo in the fourth round of the NFL draft. The 6-foot-8, 260-pound Toilolo will have a chance to be mentored by veteran tight end Tony Gonzalez, who put off his retirement plans to return for the 2013 season. Toilolo had 24 catches for 393 yards and four touchdowns in 2012 and had 10 career touchdown catches for the Cardinal.
