Depth Chart
Gage is another Falcons receiver who posted career numbers in 2020. He caught 72 balls on 109 targets for 786 yards and four scores, all career highs. But with just one 100-yard game and no multiple-TD games, he averaged just 6.5 fantasy points, even when opportunities presented themselves with Julio Jones out. HC Arthur Smith plans to move him around in the new offense, which should help create favorable matchups from the slot, where he's done most of his work to this point, and out on the boundary. He'll be on the field opposite Calvin Ridley, but it remains to be seen who gets more targets, him or rookie Kyle Pitts. Gage is a borderline WR2/WR3 depending on how that scenario plays out.

Falcons prepping Russell Gage for increased role
“I understand my role may have increased, but I’m ready for it.”
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jun 11, 10:05 am

Atlanta Falcons
With wide receiver Julio Jones off to Tennessee, the Falcons will count on Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage. “Russ has worked a lot in the slot, but like with all of our skill players, it’s our job to as coaches to push down with these guys and see what they can handle,” Smith said. “Russell has done a nice job in the slot, but we’ve moved Russell all over the place. Then we’ve got to make decisions as we get closer to the season. ... We envision Russ playing multiple spots.” (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

FFToday's Take: With Julio now catching passes from Ryan Tannehill, someone is going to have to step up in the Falcons offense. TE Kyle Pitts is expected to fill some of the vacated Julio targets but Gage should be first wideout in line to see a boost in production. He's an ideal late-round selection in drafts and should fly under the radar throughout the summer.
