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 out for Week 16
Hamstring injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 25, 1:27 pm

Atlanta Falcons
#Falcons WR Julio Jones (hamstring-out) will miss his 3rd straight game and 4th in last 5. (Adam Caplan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jones was a bit closer to playing this week but he'll once again ride the bench for the Falcons leaving Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage and TE Hayden Hurst to pick up the slack in the receiving game. The matchup for Ridley and Gage isn't the best but Ridley is on a hot streak, posting three-straight 100-yard games along with 2 TDs.


Injury Julio Jones out against the Chargers

Atlanta Falcons
Raheem Morris says Julio Jones will be OUT this week against the Chargers for the Falcons (William McFadden on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Julio has been bothered by a nagging hamstring injury much of the season and will now sit out Week 14. Atlanta's offense tends to suffer when Julio is out of the lineup. Calvin Ridley should lead the team in targets and receiving yards against the Chargers with Russell Gage seeing a slight boost in opportunities.


Injury Julio Jones iffy for Week 12?
Hamstring injury

Atlanta Falcons
Raheem Morris says they don't know right now if Julio Jones will be in or out for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Morris said the Falcons could make it a "game-time decision" with Julio if need be. (Falcons.com - Will McFadden)

FFToday's Take: Jones logged just over 20 snaps in Week 11. Olamide Zaccheaus has stepped up in a couple of spots this season and would seem to be the best target for fantasy owners looking for a direct replacement for Jones if he can't go. Russell Gage flashed a bit as well in Week 11, but his upside has proven to be limited. As per usual, Calvin Ridley would assume the WR1 mantle in this offense if Jones sits.


Injury Gametime decision for Calvin Ridley
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Nov 7, 11:30 pm

Atlanta Falcons
Though the Falcons are listing WR Calvin Ridley as questionable for Sunday with a foot injury, he did not practice this week and the team thinks it is going to be tough for him to play against the Broncos, per source. Team expects to test him pregame first. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Ridley is going to be on the inactive list but it's likely we won't know for sure until the Inactives come out. Russell Gage, Christian Blake and Olamide Zaccheaus should see increased opportunities with Julio being the obvious No.1 target in the passing game against the Broncos.
