Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) returned to practice Monday, Oct. 18.
Huddle Up: It marks Gage's first activity since going down in Week 2. The 25-year-old was expected to serve as a complementary option to Calvin Ridley and Kyle Pitts, but he very much struggled to get anything going in the two games in which he played. While his return could theoretically impact the number of Cordarrelle Patterson has seen, the most likely outcome is that Gage will simply do little more than provide the production Olamide Zaccheaus managed in his absence.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 8, and has been ruled out for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Cordarrelle Patterson has received a bigger role in the passing game while Gage has been sidelined. He likely will be the main target in the passing game for the Falcons in Week 5 and can be a low-end No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: It appears like Gage will miss another game, so fantasy players will need to look for other options for their lineup. Cordarrelle Patterson is in line for a significant role in the passing game with Gage and Calvin Ridley unlikely to play and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: Gage has been sidelined for several weeks because of the ankle injury and probably will miss another game if he is not able to practice. He can be avoided in all fantasy leagues this week.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 1, and has been ruled out for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Calvin Ridley is the only Falcons receiver that is a must-start option in fantasy leagues, but Cordarrelle Patterson is coming off a productive Week 3 performance. Patterson should see a few more targets with Gage out and could be a flex option in some leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: It appears like Gage will miss another game and should be avoided in all leagues. Cordarrelle Patterson has received a bigger role in the passing game and could be a possible flex option in very deep leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Gage probably will need to practice at some point this week if he wants a chance to play in the Week 4 game. He was not a big factor in the passing game when he was healthy and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle), CB A.J. Terrell (concussion) and WR Frank Darby (calf) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 3 against the New York Giants.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3 versus the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Gage has been virtually invisible for his fantasy managers through two games, compiling only five catches for 28 scoreless yards on nine targets. The Falcons could opt for more sets with two tight ends in his absence, which would mean slightly more work for Kyle Pitts and Hayden Hurst. Former receiver Cordarrelle Patterson could also see some snaps outside as well.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: It seems like Gage will miss at least one game because of the injury, so fantasy players should remove him from their lineups. Calvin Ridley and Kyle Pitts are the only Falcons pass catchers that will have reliable value in fantasy leagues this week.
