With Jones no longer an Atlanta Falcon, someone else on this roster will need to step up and contribute if the Falcons are to find success in 2021. While there's a lot of hype surrounding Pitts, Gage is the next most proven receiver out of this bunch. In order for Gage to find success this season though, he'll need to be able to play on the outside in 2WR sets and that's something we just haven't seen from him before. Gage is worth taking the shot on in the later rounds of your draft in case he has a larger role in this offense than we're projecting, but it's a big leap of faith to project him for anything more than a depth piece on your roster.Green's coming over from Cincinnati in an attempt to provide Murray with another big target on the outside opposite of Hopkins, but at this point of his career, we shouldn't be holding out hope that Green's going to jump back into top-24 relevancy. He'll have some games where he'll explode for a big performance, but trying to predict where the targets go after Hopkins week after week in this offense is truly going to be a headache. It's probably best to let someone else deal with the headache of having Green on their fantasy roster this season.

 Apparently I'm a glutton for punishment. Every winter I swear I'll never pick A.J. Green again, no matter how cheap he is on draft day and every summer I drink the green flavored Kool Aid. The Bengals' schedule in 2020 was horrific. They played some very tough defenses and their o-line was non-existent which, in turn, proceeded to get Joe Burrow killed. Even the poised Burrow admitted he needed to work on his deep throw accuracy this offseason, most likely a product of being under duress. Green heads out West where he's no longer the focal point of attention for defenses with DeAndre Hopkins on the other side. He also has a very mobile young star QB in Kyler Murray whose speed is a threat defenses need to be aware of. If Green can stay healthy (he did last year), he could do surprisingly well in Kliff Kingbury's Air Raid offense. However, that's a still a big if. The good news is A.J. is dirt cheap. His current ADP is the 21st round. even if he doesn't pan out, you've lost nothing. This is a Mark Ringo Long Shot Special! This time for sure Green will hit. I just know it. I mean sooner or later the law of averages has to kick in on Green right? Haha!

In case you may have missed it, Dirk Koetter is no longer calling plays for the Falcons. The Falcons ran 3WR sets 61 percent of the time last year, which allowed Gage to get on the field more often. Arthur Smith's offense in Tennessee last year ran 3WR sets just 38 percent of the time, the second-lowest mark in football. That obviously presents a problem for Gage, as does the arrival of Kyle Pitts, who'll be utilized as a receiver at times. Some may wonder if the loss of Julio Jones opens things up for him. Yes, it will likely net him more targets, but targets on the perimeter haven't been the same for Gage, as he works best from the slot. The Falcons could very well start Tajae Sharpe over him in 2WR sets.There are some things in life we just need to set free and Green is one of them. I was on board with a bounce-back season in 2020, but despite seeing 104 targets and finishing towards the league leaders in air yards, Green couldn't even muster up a top-65 season. No other wide receiver with 100-plus targets finished worse than WR44. Now competing for targets with DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, and Rondale Moore? Green was so good and arguably undervalued for so long, but those times seem to have passed, as injuries have caught up with the big fella.

If/when Julio is gone, Gage becomes the WR2 - a role he's thrived in

WR40 in half-ppr last year, but a change in offense and a hopefully healthy Julio could diminish his production in '21.
