I'll be the first to say that I expected Gage to be replaced this offseason, but he is apparently the Falcons replacement for Mohamed Sanu in 2020. He filled in quite a bit last year, totaling 68 targets over the final nine games. Injuries to Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper certainly didn't hurt his cause, but he's going to have a role no matter what. Think of him as a Hunter Renfrow-type.While watching Hamler's film in college, he shouldn't have been labeled as a slot-only receiver, though most did due to his smaller stature. Knowing that he'll play alongside Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy, he's most likely going to be fairly slot-heavy and only come onto the field in 3WR sets. That's going to limit his fantasy appeal for a team that wants to run the ball fairly often. Still, he's electric with the ball in his hands and is going to have a few weeks that'll make you wish you had him in your starting lineup.

When you get outside the top-15 rounds, it's difficult to locate players that are even starters on their own rosters. In some instances, you're taking shots on the fourth or even fifth wide receivers on some teams that are only going to be relevant if an injury happens to the players above them on the depth chart. Meanwhile, Gage is hanging out at WR102 in ADP Consensus right now and is going to see plenty of targets in this high-powered offense. Gage isn't going to be a league-winner, by any means, but he can be a player that you roll into your lineups on bye weeks that will see his guaranteed 4 to 6 targets per game.I loved KJ Hamler's tape, but this landing spot has him falling down my draft board a bit. Hamler's going to have more of a NFL impact than a fantasy football one, unfortunately. He'll come onto the field in 3WR sets to play the slot and will force a defense to pay attention to him due to his top-end speed. This will open things up for Jerry Jeudy and Noah Fant underneath, but you're unlikely to see Hamler receive more than four targets per game this season, barring an injury. The talent level is there, but in this offense, there's simply too many mouths to feed for him to be a fantasy football star.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Russell Gage took over from Mo Sanu mid-season and did a solid job in the Falcons slot. He particularly shone when at least one of the Falcons big three (Jones, Ridley and Hooper) was injured but with Hooper gone, there is some opportunity in an offence that will likely be very pass-heavy again. That make Gage a late-round safety pick but little more.K.J. Hamler projects as a strong slot receiver, unfortunately he was drafted behind the class's best slot guy, Jerry Jeudy. There's a good chance Hamler takes the second outside spot in three wide sets and though that will have limited value in a run first offence led by the inexperienced Drew Lock, Hamler still has a chance to make a first year impact, though the chances are low.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
From the time he first played 50% of the snaps in Week 8, Russell Gage averaged 7.3 targets over the final 9 games, a 116-target pace. Role's still there in a high-volume offense. @YardsPerGretch

Could carve out a nice role with Austin Hooper gone. Up.
