Falcons sign oft-injured TE Tony Moeaki

Thursday, March 19, 2015, 4:06pm

PFT - [Full Article]

The Falcons started the day by signing former Colt and Bronco Jacob Tamme, but they weren’t done adding players to compete with Levine Toilolo for playing time. The team announced that they have also signed former Chief, Bill and Seahawk Tony Moeaki on Thursday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact:

Moeki has talent but hasn't been able to stay out of the training room. The Falcons are looking to shore up the TE position and today's signings of Tamme and Moeaki give them a couple of veterans to lean on.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Tony Moeaki entered training camp healthy this year after dealing with a variety of injuries over the last few season. Still only 28, he gives the Falcons the best combination of blocking and pass-catching ability of any tight end on the roster. New offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan loves to create opportunities for tight ends, so Moeaki could create some fantasy value if he beats out Jacob Tamme and Levine Toilolo and stays healthy.

Fantasy Downside
The odds are against Moeaki making an impact in 2015. In fact, he's no guarantee to even make the Falcons final roster. The veteran has dealt with hamstring, elbow, calf, hand, concussion, ACL and shoulder issues throughout his career and is a poor bet to stay healthy. He caught just eight passes in six games last year while finishing the season with the Seahawks and battling calf and shoulder problems.

Bottom Line
Tamme is slated to be the Falcons starting tight end this year and Toilolo has even drawn praise for his work in training camp after putting together an ineffective 2014 campaign. It would take injuries or poor play from Tamme and Toiolo for Moeaki to see the field and even then, he'd have to stay healthy to make an impact. He currently ranks as our TE50 and is going undrafted in both 10 and 12-team leagues.
