|The loss of Tony Gonzalez from the offense clearly had an impact in 2014. Atlanta chose to ignore the position in the passing game altogether rather than find an adequate replacement. For the 2015 season, the team added former Chief Tony Moeaki and former Bronco Jacob Tamme. Both tight ends offer more offensive upside than incumbent Levine Toilolo but both have plenty to prove before fantasy owners can trust either as a weekly option. Moeaki is the better option if he can overcome injury woes that have hampered him since his rookie season. As a result, Jacob Tamme may end up being the most stable option for the Falcons. The risk of a tight end committee makes this situation undesirable for fantasy purposes.
|Moeaki, Tamme competition expected at camp|
Falcons looking for answers at tight end
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jun 26, 9:00 am
|The Falcons sought to upgrade the tight end position this offseason by signing Jacob Tamme and Tony Moeaki in free agency. Tamme received a two-year, $4 million contract with $400,000 guaranteed, while Moeaki, who’s been often injured, received a modest one-year, $744,000 deal. The two are expected to compete for the role of top pass-catching tight end when training camp opens on July 31. (Atlanta Journal Constitution)|
FFToday's Take: Levine Toilolo finished 37th among fantasy tight ends last season with a 31-238-2 stat line. The Falcons will role the dice with a consistently injured Moeaki and the veteran Tamme who last had fantasy relevance back in 2012 with Denver. Moeaki is the better athlete with the biggest fantasy upside of the three but his injury history and the WR-focused gameplan in Atlanta makes him undraftable even if he does win the starting job in camp.
