2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Gage saw a nice jump in his second season, garnering lots of slot work. He received 74 targets and had 49 catches for 446 yards and a touchdown. I project him to continue in this slot role, and he may get a bit more work with Ryan's security blanket Austin Hooper leaving in free agency. Hooper specialized in the same general areas of the field as Gage works, so Gage could grab some of the targets Hooper leaves behind. Likely Hayden Hurst, the new starter at tight end, will soak up most of Hooper's vacated targets, but Gage does have an opportunity since he already has worked with Ryan.

Gage is never going to command a large target share and is certainly a role player, but in an offense that threw 684 passes last season, he can certainly be a viable fantasy player - particularly if he can get up to 85 targets. He is a player to keep in mind in deep PPR leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Julio Jones inactive for Week 5
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 11, 11:30 am

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons officially rule out Julio Jones (hamstring) for today's matchup vs. Panthers. (Vaughn McClure on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Julio's been gimping around the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. In his absence Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage and Olamide Zaccheaus will be the top three wideout options for Matt Ryan. Zaccheaus makes for a nice salary saver on DraftKings at only $3000.


Injury Julio, Ridley both listed as Questionable for Monday night
Russell Gage is expected to play

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons’ WR update for Monday Night’s game in Green Bay: Julio Jones (hamstring) and Calvin Ridley (ankle) both will be listed as questionable. Russell Gage (concussion) is expected to play. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Given what's happened at practice this week it seems like both Julio and Ridley will likely play this week although we won't know for sure until Monday. In the same game, Davante Adams seems like more of a risk. Fantasy owners of Adams should have plan B in place.


Injury Falcons WRs nursing injuries
Calvin Ridley absent from practice Thursday
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 1, 11:55 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Seven starters were held out of practice on Thursday, which was the first day of practice for the Falcons this week. On that list of starters who missed practice were wide receiver Calvin Ridley (ankle). Some key starters were also limited during Thursday's practice session, including wide receivers Julio Jones (hamstring) and Russell Gage (concussion). (Falcons.com)

FFToday's Take: Because the Falcons play on Monday night, fantasy owners won't know the status of any of these receivers until sometime Saturday afternoon. However, the early sense is that Jones and Gage will play. Ridley will probably join them, but a DNP to begin the week isn't what his fantasy owners wanted to see. Assuming he plays, he'll try to make it 4-for-4 with 100-yard receiving games against the Packers.


Injury Julio Jones out for Week 3
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 27, 11:30 am

Atlanta Falcons
Falcons rule out Julio Jones (hamstring) for today’s game against the Bears. Means more Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage at receiver as well as tight end Hayden Hurst. Jones missed a game last year with a shoulder injury. (Vaughn McClure on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Julio is inactive for the Falcons. That will leave Ridley, Gage and Hurst as the main weapons for Matt Ryan today against the Bears. Christian Blake will get a bigger opportunity today as well.


Injury Julio Jones will be a gametime decision
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 25, 11:21 am

Atlanta Falcons
Dan Quinn said Julio Jones (hamstring) will be taken up all the way to the game. So game-time decision. He will be on the side today. Has been involved in the game plan. (Vaughn McClure on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Julio seemed limited last week dealing with his hamstring injury. If he's active, he's going to be very difficult for fantasy owners to put on the bench. Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage should continue to be quality starts in light of Julio's nagging injury.


Injury Julio Jones absent from practice again
Consecutive missed practices w/ hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 24, 12:00 am

Atlanta Falcons
We will see what happens tomorrow with Julio Jones' status. He usually fights through things but strained the injured hamstring. (ESPN - Vaughn McClure)

FFToday's Take: Jones' participation in practice on Friday (or the lack thereof) figures to be critical in getting an early read for his Week 3 status. The likelihood he made it worse in Week 2 would suggest he'll be on the doubtful side of questionable. Fantasy owners should expect be without him as a result. Atlanta's offense figures to suffer against the Bears without Julio, but fantasy owners should still start Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage and Hayden Hurst based on projected volume alone.
