Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. caught four passes for 23 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 16. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Gage was one of the starting receivers with Julio Jones out but struggled against the Chiefs. He will see some targets next week but can be benched if fantasy players have better options available.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. was good for five receptions and 68 yards with one touchdown on 10 targets in Week 15 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Gage was the second option in the pass game behind Calvin Ridley, stepping up with Julio Jones out of commission. Gage might be worth a look as a WR5 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 16 at Kansas City.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. caught five passes for 82 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, Dec. 13.
Huddle Up: At full strength Gage is a solid third receiver for Atlanta, but when Jones is out he moves up the food chain and becomes a playable option as a fringe WR3 of flex option for fantasy owners. Keep an eye on Jones' health if you're considering slotting Gage into your lineup in Week 15.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. posted seven receptions for 58 yards on 12 targets in Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: It's hard to 'gauge' the fantasy value of Gage. One week he has a high volume of grabs, then the next week he disappears. This was his highest catch total since Week 1 when he had his only 100-yard game.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. posted just two grabs for 11 yards on six targets in Week 9 against the Denver Broncos.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (knee, shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 5.
