Falcons' Luke Stocker: Makes 13-yard grab against ex-team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker secured his only target for 13 yards during Sunday's 44-27 loss to Tampa Bay.

Taking on his former team of seven years, Stocker made his fourth reception of the regular season's final three weeks. He tallied 43 yards with those passing-game opportunities against the Buccaneers, Chiefs and Buccaneers again, after totaling just three catches for 20 yards over his first 13 outings of the year. The veteran tight end is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, but Atlanta could elect to bring him back due to his abilities as a blocker.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (elbow) does not carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Will McFadden of AtlantaFalcons.com reports.

Despite remaining limited in practice all week, Stocker will be available for the Falcons' season finale Sunday, though he's yet to accrue more than three targets in a single contest this year.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (elbow) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, William McFadden reports.

Stocker should have a fair chance at suiting up against the Buccaneers on Sunday as long as he can continue to practice, but Friday's session will likely be the key factor in determining his Week 17 availability. The veteran tight end only has six catches through 15 games.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Lowest usage of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker didn't haul in his lone target in Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Saints.

Stocker played just 16 snaps on offense, establishing a new low for the season. This was a schematic decision, as Hayden Hurst's role remained the same while Jaeden Graham also saw a steep decrease in usage. Stocker should remain off fantasy radars.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Registers first catch of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker caught his lone target for a six-yard gain during Sunday's 30-26 loss to Chicago.

The 32-year-old tight end accumulated 54 offensive snaps between Weeks 1 and 2 with only one target thrown his way, while starting TE Hayden Hurst attracted 13 targets in comparison. Stocker registered his first catch since Week 17 of last season Sunday, but he shouldn't be expected to be a significant contributor moving forward as he's never exceeded 16 receptions in any of his 10 pro campaigns.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (hip) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Bears, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Stocker didn't practice fully all week, but he's been given the green light ahead of Week 3. The 32-year-old TE has logged at least a 30 percent snap share in each of the first two games, although he's received just one target as the second-string tight end behind Hayden Hurst.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Logs limited practice session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker was limited in practice Wednesday due to a hip injury, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The veteran tight end has played 25-plus snaps in both of Atlanta's first two games, but he's been targeted just once. Though he's apparently banged up coming out of the Falcons' 40-39 loss to the Cowboys in Week 2, Stocker's partial participation in practice should put him on track to play this weekend against the Bears.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Officially rejoining Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker re-signed with the Falcons on Friday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The veteran tight end has gone through COVID-19 testing, and he now prepares to rejoin the Falcons on-field for padded practice after being released by the team in March. Behind starter Hayden Hurst on the tight end depth chart, Stocker bolsters the position group with his run and pass-blocking skills.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Likely returning to Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker agreed in principle Wednesday on a contract with the Falcons, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The veteran tight end was released by Atlanta in March, but he'll be back in the fold for training camp to add depth at the position. Behind presumptive starter Hayden Hurst, Stocker will vie for backup reps along with XFL standout Khari Lee, rookie Jared Pinkney, and a pair of holdovers from last year in Jaeden Graham and Carson Meier. Stocker doesn't offer much of a receiving threat, but he'll provide the Falcons with solid blocking if he's able to crack the Week 1 roster.

Luke Stocker: Will be released
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Falcons will release Stocker, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Stocker, who caught eight of 14 targets for 53 yards in 15 games with Atlanta last season, will now look to catch on elsewhere as a depth tight end. The 31-year-old is off the fantasy radar, but his blocking ability should help land him a contract elsewhere.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Starts nine times during 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker corralled eight of 14 targets for 53 receiving yards during his 2019 debut season with the Falcons.

Though he fielded at least 30 percent of Atlanta's offensive snaps in 12 of 15 outings this season, Stocker still garnered fewer than one target per game. The 31-year-old has served almost exclusively as a blocking contributor during his nine NFL seasons, never once exceeding 30 targets or 16 receptions in any campaign. He's under contract with the Falcons for one more season at a cap hit of $3.3 million, and he currently sits alongside Jaeden Graham on the depth chart as a backup to free-agent-to-be Austin Hooper.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Set to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (hip) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Stocker worked as a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, but the hip injury won't impact his availability for Week 16. The 31-year-old should return to his role as Atlanta's No. 3 tight end.

December 20, 2019 03:24 PM
Falcons' Luke Stocker: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (hip) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Stocker is making progress in his recovery from a hip injury sustained during Week 15's win over the 49ers. If he's able to suit up against Jacksonville on Sunday, he'll play a depth role in Atlanta's tight end corps.

December 18, 2019 05:28 PM
Falcons' Luke Stocker: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (hip) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Stocker caught one pass for nine yards in Sunday's win over the 49ers and wound up getting a tad dinged up as well. A hip injury kept Stocker out of Wednesday's practice, so the 31-year-old tight end needs to return to practice by Friday in order to play Week 16 versus the Jaguars.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Another limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (back) logged a limited practice Thursday.

Stocker practiced in part for the second consecutive day after missing the team's Week 13 contest. Along with him, both Austin Hooper (knee) and Jaeden Graham (thigh) were also limited. Depending on which of that trio are available for the team's Week 14 matchup against the Panthers, Stocker could see an uptick in opportunity.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Limited to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a back injury, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Stocker joined fellow tight ends Austin Hooper (knee) and Jaeden Graham (thigh) as a limited participants in the session. Given that Stocker didn't practice in any capacity last week before sitting out the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Saints, he's at least seemingly taken a step forward in his recovery. If he's able to play Sunday against the Panthers, Stocker would fill his usual role as a blocking specialist and would have a limited role in the passing game regardless of the availability of Hooper and/or Graham.

Falcons' Luke Stocker: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (back) is inactive for Thursday's contest against the Saints, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Stocker didn't practice at all during the week, so his absence comes as little surprise. Jaeden Graham will serve as the Falcons' lead tight end.

November 27, 2019 02:40 PM
Falcons' Luke Stocker: Questionable for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (back) is considered questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Saints, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

Stocker was listed as a DNP for every practice during the short week, but the Falcons believe he still has a chance to suit up for the divisional clash. The veteran tight end played 37 percent of offensive snaps in last Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, though he has little fantasy value with just one target over two games during Austin Hooper's (knee) absence. Stocker's official status will be released 90 minutes before Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

November 26, 2019 04:36 PM
Falcons' Luke Stocker: Misses practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker (back) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Stocker has been unable to practice this week, and with a game on Thursday, it isn't looking likely. He'll probably need to get at least a limited practice in Wednesday in order to suit up against the Saints.

November 25, 2019 04:20 PM
Falcons' Luke Stocker: Estimated as non-participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stocker has a back injury and was listed as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Stocker played 37 percent of offensive snaps during the loss to the Buccaneers and failed to catch his lone target, and he apparently sustained the back injury in the contest. Jaeden Graham is currently Atlanta's only healthy tight end since Austin Hooper (knee) is still recovering from an MCL sprain. Stocker will only have a couple days to recover for Thursday's matchup with the Saints.
