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 offense that will likely be very pass-heavy again. That make Gage a late-round safety pick but little more.MVS was a colossal disappointment in 2019 and although many are holding out hope, his diving snap counts as the season went on make it very obvious he's not the guy in Green Bay. The Devin Funchess holdout could mean he's back in the hunt but he lacks much upside at this stage.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Once Mohamed Sanu was traded, Gage saw a ridiculous 66 targets in nine games, though it did help that both Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper both missed time during that stretch. I expected the Falcons to fill that role with someone in the draft or free agency, but it never happened, so it's possible we see Gage as a bye-week filler on fantasy rosters, especially if any of the other pass-catchers were to miss time. There isn't much upside here, though. Best case scenario is that we're looking at someone like Cole Beasley from 2019. Again, could play a role in fantasy, but don't see a consistent fantasy producer.It seems that Valdes-Scantling got on the bad side of Aaron Rodgers early in his career, and then a move from the slot to the perimeter essentially decimated his fantasy potential. But did something happen this offseason that could get him back on track to the top-40 receiver he was being drafted as in 2019 fantasy drafts? Geronimo Allison was allowed to let walk in free agency, vacating the slot role once again. Valdes-Scantling seems like the natural replacement, as Davante Adams and Allen Lazard aren't primary slot receivers. That's great news considering Valdes-Scantling has averaged 1.02 more fantasy points per target in the slot than he has on the perimeter. That's the second-highest gap in football over the last two years, so you can say he's slot-dependent. If he can get back on Aaron Rodgers' good side, he'll have some streamer-worthy weeks.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 With injuries abound last season, Valdes-Scantling had his opportunities, but couldn't take advantage. Despite playing in all 16 games, he caught just 26 passes and scored two touchdowns. He fell behind Allen Lazard on the depth chart, and with the addition of Devin Funchess, it appeared that Valdes-Scantling wasn't likely to see the field all that much absent an injury. But now, with Funchess opting out, there's at least a plausible, albeit unlikely, path to fantasy-relevance. He's a late-round dart throw, but that's all.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
 2019 was supposed to be Scantling's breakout season, that never happened. Now he is at best 4ht on the Packers depth chart. He does not need to be drafted in redraft leagues.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.MVS has had opportunities previously, but hasn't been able to take advantage of them. He's still someone to monitor though due to the uncertainties of this Packers receiving corps. If he has a good training camp, we could see him emerge as a starter in this offense and be given another opportunity to contribute for fantasy football.
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
