Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. caught six passes for 62 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: Gage has caught at least five passes in three of the last four games and picked his first touchdown in four games. He will continue to be a main option in the passing game for the Falcons and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. caught five passes for 49 yards in Week 11 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: While a 5-49-0 line is middling production at best, it was still enough to lead the Falcons in both categories. Gage has been an inconsistent presence as the nominal No. 1 receiver with Calvin Ridley away from the team, and he can't be viewed as more than a risky flex play in that role.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. was targeted three times during the Week 10 game but finished the game with zero receptions.
Huddle Up: None of the Falcons players had much success this week, and Gage may have had the worst game among the team's skill players. He should see a decent amount of targets next week against the New England Patriots but probably only a possible flex option in deeper leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. registered seven receptions for 64 yards on eight targets in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: Gage has four or more grabs in each of his past three games. He is seeing a larger role with Calvin Ridley away from the team. He could be a sneaky WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 10 at Dallas.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 5, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Gage is coming off a disappointing Week 8 game but should see some targets this week against the New Orleans Saints. He could be a possible flex option in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (groin) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: Gage is on track for the Week 9 game and hopefully will be more involved in the passing game than he was last week. He should see a handful of targets against the New Orleans Saints but may only be a possible flex option in leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 3.
Huddle Up: Gage should receive a bigger role with Calvin Ridley away from the team but was not targeted in the last game. He should see a few targets this week but can be avoided in most leagues.

Atlanta Falcons WR Russell Gage Jr. caught four passes for 67 yards and one touchdown against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7. He was targeted six times in the game.
Huddle Up: Gage returned to the lineup after missing time during an injury and ranked third in targets during the game. He will see a handful of targets next week and can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

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.
