TE - FA
Week 12 Outlook
Atlanta Falcons TE Tony Moeaki suffered a thigh injury during the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.
Moeaki is now third on the depth chart at TE and is in danger of being cut. Levine Toilolo, last year's incumbent starter, seems to have impressed the coaches and moved ahead of Moeaki. He is just too injury-prone to make any sort of fantasy impact.
Moeaki is battling with veteran Jacob Tamme to secure a coveted spot atop the depth chart in this high-powered Falcons offense. Historically, OC Kyle Shanahan has kept TEs heavily involved in his system.
Despite some impressive numbers, Moeaki has also flown under the radar mostly due to injuries. As a rookie in 2010, he tallied 556 receiving yards and three touchdowns, which propelled him to the fifth-best Pro Football Focus grade among qualifying tight ends. However, he played in only eight games during the last two seasons and missed all of 2011. Wait until preseason to make the call on Moeaki.
When asked about his lengthy injury history, new Falcons TE Tony Moeaki stated â€œI donâ€™t worry about that stuff,â€ Moeaki said. â€œI just come out and try to get better and make as many plays as possible.â€
Moeaki was brought in to battle with veteran Jacob Tamme and Levine Toilolo. Moeaki possibly has the most talent of the three, and could be a deep sleeper in 2015.
Head Coach Pete Carroll stated that Tony Moeaki, who missed the Divisional Playoff with a calf injury, "should be able to play" against Green Bay.
Moeaki is an interesting flyer to take in daily formats this week, but mainly this just stretches the targets even thinner in Seattle. While the Conference Championship is most likely going to be a moderately high scoring affair, Moeaki is a shot in the dark.
According to the Seahawks' Twitter, Tony Moeaki (calf) will be a game time decision.
Daily players may have thought about using the tight end Saturday. However, unless we hear definitive news, Moeaki will only be a consideration on late swap sites.
