TE - NYG
Week 12 Outlook
Tight end Levine Toilolo has reportedly agreed to sign with the New York Giants, according to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.
Toilolo is a massive human being and will likely be used primarily as a blocking tight end. He had just two receptions for the 49ers last season and has just 97 receptions over his seven years in the NFL. He is unlikely to have any fantasy value next season.
Levine Toilolo caught an eight-yard touchdown pass from kicker Matt Prater on a fake field goal in the second quarter of the 31-0 win over the Packers. Toilolo finished with four receptions for 43 yards.
Toilolo emerged as the Lions top TE over the second half the season. He finished the year with 21 receptions for 263 yards.
Levine Toilolo had a 16-yard reception on his only target of Week 16.
Toilolo has been involved more in the passing game in recent weeks but only saw one target in Week 16 against the Vikings. He can be safely left off fantasy rosters.
Levine Toilolo had four receptions for 28 yards on four targets in the 14-13 loss to the Bills in Week 15.
Toilolo continues to be involved in the passing game with depleted receiving options in Detroit but still doesn't get enough volume to carry any fantasy value.
Levine Toilolo reeled in both of his targets for 26 yards during the Week 14 win over the Cardinals.
Toilolo has six receptions over the last two weeks and might be forced into a bigger role next week for the depleted Lions receiving corp. He's still not worth fantasy consideration in the playoffs.
