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.
Toilolo caught one pass for 13 yards during Sunday's 20-19 victory over Carolina.
Even with Marvin Jones (knee) and Michael Roberts (shoulder) out of action --and with the Lions still looking for pass catchers to step up in the wake of Golden Tate's trade to Philly -- Toilolo remained an afterthought in the gameplan. Don't expect that to change in Week 12 against the Bears.
Toilolo was not targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Vikings.
After averaging over 25 offensive snaps per game over the first six games of the season, Toilolo hasn't topped 16 in either of the past two weeks. If the tight end is intentionally being given a diminished workload, the blocking-oriented Toilolo will become even less relevant for fantasy purposes.
Toilolo was targeted once during Sunday's 28-14 loss to Seattle, converting it into a 12-yard gain.
The catch was Toilolo's first since Week 4. There might have been some thought that the statuesque Toilolo could provide a red-zone threat for a Detroit offense without much established talent at tight end, but second-year player Michael Roberts has emerged as the red-zone target. Maybe the departure of receiver Golden Tate, who was traded to Philadelphia on Tuesday, opens things up for the tight ends, but it seems most likely that Roberts and starter Luke Willson would benefit were that to be the case. A matchup against an improving Vikings pass defense looms Sunday.
