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.

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
Hamstring injury

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.
