Expert 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
6/14: Vibes around Godwin seem pessimistic while Brady & co call for "big role" from an elite slot weapon. Real explosion upside esp. on Full-PPR sites, even if he is a risk to fizzle later (though I doubt it-- once you're in Brady's circle, you're in) + NOW GRONKOWSKI GONE -- Tons of upside for season-long value now even when Godwin returns6/14: While I don't love that he couldn't get it done w/ Rodgers, early reports suggest much different "intermediate" usage. Just as likely fools good as anyone in the league, but the ceiling still can't be ignored if he does emerge with Alpha Role to Mahomes.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
I really think he'll be a top-36WR, I'm hedging with him here. 
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Russell Gage walks in the comfortable WR3 role in one of the league's fastest-paced and pass happiest offenses. If Chris Godwin gets off to a slow start or begins the season on the PUP, Gage could get bumped up to Brady's second option. Gage has the talent to handle that after what he showed in 2021. He was 17th in yards per route run (minimum 50 targets, per PFF) and 12th in route win rate (per Playerprofiler.com). Brady has proven that he can support a bevy of pass-catchers in fantasy, and Gage could be the latest beneficiary to the Brady bump. 
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Gage is coming off a stellar year after posting career-highs in yards per route run (1.96) and PFF receiving grade (76.0) while playing more on the outside. Often thought of as a "slot-only" wideout, Gage split snaps 50/50 from the slot versus outside in 2021. He also led the Falcons with a 29% target share since Week 11 - playing 53% of his snaps for the outside - showcasing his ability to earn passing volume alongside the talented Kyle Pitts Any receiver in a Tom Brady-led offense should be a sought-after commodity - so consider me in on Gage in 2022. There are plenty of scenarios where Gage continues his success from the tail-end of last season.Just less than a day after trading Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins, the Chiefs have signed his replacement Marquez Valdes-Scantling. It's a three-year deal worth up to $36 million. Essentially the same money that Russell Gage got from the Buccaneers and what Zay Jones got from Jacksonville. The ex-Packers field stretcher has ranked inside the top-5 in yards per reception over the last two seasons, so he will feel right at home catching bombs from Patrick Mahomes. He is sure to experience spiked weeks of production attached to the Chiefs' big-armed quarterback, but valuing him more than a weekly boom-or-bust fantasy WR3/4 would be malpractice. MVS does get a bump up in the WR rankings with a slight upgrade at QB and the opportunity to see a larger target share, but I wouldn't view him too dissimilarly to how he was perceived in Green Bay for the past four seasons. He has never commanded 75 targets in a season. His 2022 wide receiver ranking is comfortably behind JuJu Smith-Schuster and Skyy Moore.
