Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

The Falcons showed a glimpse of the re-defined role of the tight end position in the exhibition opener against Miami.

All five of the tight ends played from scrimmage in the 16-10 win over Miami. Four tight ends also played on special teams.

The great Tony Gonzalez, who retired after last season, was a main target in the passing attack and never was a regular on special teams.

Levine Toilolo, who’s listed as the No. 1 tight end on the depth chart, played 43 snaps on offense and two on special teams against the Dolphins. He was targeted three times and made two catches for 19 yards, including a long of 15. Bear Pascoe played 19 snaps on offense and four on special teams. He caught one pass for 6 yards. Mickey Shuler played 18 snaps on offense and 13 on special teams. He caught two passes for 19 yards. Brian Wozniak played six snaps on offense and two on special teams. Jacob Pederson played four snaps on offense and was the only tight end on the roster who didn’t play on special teams.

“There are some interesting battles going on in the tight end group,” tight ends coach Chris Scelfo said. “Levine, Mickey, all five of those guys are battling.”

Fantasy Impact:
The position will not be featured in the offense’s passing attack. Where the Falcons used to call plays for Gonzalez, the tight end this season will mostly be blockers, special teams players and check-down options. Toilolo is ranked just 27th on our TE list and is projected for just 40 receptions.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
If starter Levine Toilolo were to suffer an injury then Pascoe is currently slated to be the Falcons' starting tight end. But that's where his upside ends.

Fantasy Downside
Now that Tony Gonzalez has retired, OC Dirk Koetter figures to use more three-receiver formations that utilize the speed of Harry Douglas rather than the size of his tight ends. Pascoe has never caught more than 12 passes in a season and has totaled 100 yards receiving only once (2011 with the Giants). Even if Toilolo were to be injured, Pascoe doesn't have the tools to be a reliable receiver and third-stringer Mickey Shuler has shown more pass-catching ability anyways. Thus, Pascoe is more of a blocker than a receiver and won't carve out a role in this offense.

Bottom Line
Avoid Pascoe in your drafts. The tight end position simply won't be featured in Koetter's offense and he has a young Toilolo blocking him on the depth chart.
