Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. went for two receptions, 26 yards and just three targets in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Gage posted over 100 yards in Week 1, and he had a touchdown last weekend, but he did neither of those things in this one despite operating as the No. 2 receiver with Julio Jones out. If Jones is sidelined in Week 4 at Green Bay, Gage is worth a look as a low-end WR4 or flex option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, with lesser value if Julio is active.

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (head) will not return to the Week 3 game after suffering a head injury.
Huddle Up: Gage probably suffered a concussion and will need to pass the concussion tests before he is cleared to play again. It is not known when Julio Jones will return, so Calvin Ridley and Hayden Hurst are the only two Falcons pass catchers to consider if Gage and Jones miss Week 4.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (head) left the Week 3 game early and is being evaluated for a head injury. He is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Gage may be able to return to the game if he is cleared by the doctors, so fantasy players should monitor the situation. He will have a bigger role in the passing game while Julio Jones is sidelined and can be at least a flex option if healthy.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. should be able to take his play to another level this upcoming season, according to offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. Koetter said Gage will need to work on his consistency.
Huddle Up: Gage received more playing time during the second half of the 2019 season and was able to produce with the bigger workload. He may be the Falcons' No. 3 receiver this upcoming season and has a chance to be a late round pick in deeper fantasy leagues.
