TE - FA
Week 13 Outlook
TE Levine Toilolo tore his Achilles during Wednesday’s practice.
Toilolo will now miss the 2021 season, just months after restructuring his contract to remain with the team. Last season, the 30-year old caught just five receptions for 46 yards in what could have been his last season in the NFL. Achilles remain one of the hardest injuries to come back from, at 30 it won’t be any easier. While we wish him the best, it’s safe to leave him on waivers in even the deepest of leagues.
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the New York Giants are bringing back veteran TE Levine Toilolo on a restructured contract.
With the veteran TE set to make $2.95 million in 2021, the Giants and Toilolo have agreed on principles to restructure his deal. Last season, the 29-year old caught just five receptions for 46 yards.
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.
