Toilolo caught all four of his targets for 43 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's victory in Green Bay. Toilolo snuck free on a fake field-goal attempt to collect a perfect pass from kicker Matt Prater for what marked the tight end's first touchdown as a member of the Lions. The veteran otherwise served as nothing more than a secondary, short-range target for quarterback Matthew Stafford, just like Toilolo has been most of the season. Set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, the reliable Toilolo seems like an obvious candidate to be retained by Detroit in the offseason, though the blocking-oriented veteran doesn't carry the athletic upside to approach the 2019 campaign as an exciting fantasy option in any format -- regardless of whether he's the starter or not.
Toilolo secured his only target for 16 yards during Sunday's 27-9 victory over Detroit. Toilolo saw a significantly lighter workload than he has in recent weeks on a day quarterback Matthew Stafford peppered star wideout Kenny Golladay with a gaudy 15 targets. He'll look to rebound in Week 17 against a Packers team that just surrendered six receptions for 82 yards and one touchdown to Jets rookie tight end Chris Herndon this Sunday a week after allowing Bears tight ends to log six receptions for 75 yards and a score in Week 15.
Toilolo secured all four of his targets for 28 yards during Sunday's 14-13 loss to Buffalo. Toilolo had only seen more than one target on one occasion through the first 11 games of the season, but the tight end has averaged over three targets and 48 receiving yards per game over the last three weeks. With Michael Roberts (shoulder) on injured reserve, it's not a stretch to think Toilolo could continue to see consistent looks in the passing game during the final two games of the season.
Toilolo secured both of his targets for 26 yards during Sunday's 17-3 victory over Arizona. Toilolo predictably fell back down to earth in his first showing after catching four of six targets for a career-high 90 yards last week against Los Angeles. Still without a touchdown and just one target in the red zone over 14 games, Toilolo will remain an unattractive fantasy option in Week 15 against the Bills.
Toilolo secured four of six targets for 90 yards during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Rams. Toilolo set a new career high in single-game receiving yardage against a Rams defense that came into Sunday allowing the fourth-most yards to tight ends per game in 2018 (68.5). Considering Toilolo only recorded 100 yards on his nine other catches this season, this performance from the typical blocking specialist truly came out of nowhere. If Michael Roberts (shoulder) remains unable to play in Week 14, Toilolo could again see a number of targets down the seam against a Cardinals defense that's allowed only three touchdowns to tight ends this year.
