Toilolo was held to one catch for five yards in Sunday's overtime loss to San Diego.
Toilolo only received one target on the day, as Matt Ryan looked to Julio Jones for the bulk of his throws. It's worth noting that fellow tight end Jacob Tamme earned three targets and caught a touchdown pass. If we throw out his game log against the Seahawks where he caught three balls for 69 yards and a touchdown, Toilolo has been held to three receptions for 26 yards in his other six games combined.
Toilolo caught three balls for 69 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.
Toilolo had been held without a catch in four of his five games entering Sunday, but he was able to find a few holes in Seattle's secondary, including on a 46-yard touchdown reception. He's still the third tight end option in Atlanta, so it's unlikely he'll continue to produce lines like this in the future.
Toilolo entered 2016 with an opportunity to win the starting job, but after a mediocre preseason, that ship has long sailed. With both Jacob Tamme and Austin Hooper currently ahead of him in the pecking order, Toilolo's value has taken a serious hit.
Toilolo (hand) caught one pass for 13 yards on two targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.
Jacob Tamme got the start, but Toilolo and Austin Hooper also got some snaps with the first-team offense. Each player managed just one catch, and while Tamme appears to have an early advantage, there's still time for Toilolo or Hooper to make a move before Week 1. Regardless, the Atlanta tight ends probably won't be a big part of the team's passing game this season.
The 6-foot-8 tight end has been battling a hand injury for roughly a week now but appears to be close to 100 percent. Toilolo remains in the mix for starting job, but in an offense pillared by the likes of Julio Jones and Devonta Freeman, it's unsure exactly how strong of an impact Toilolo will have this season.
