Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
The Ravens passing attack last year was solely lacking a possession style receiver that could give Jackson a reliable target in tough situations. Baltimore addressed this in a big way this off-season by adding the dynamic route-runner out of Minnesota in the first round. While Bateman's going to make an immediate impact for the Ravens, it might not lead to much fantasy production in this offense. Unless we see the Ravens completely alter their offensive strategy and lean more on the passing game, the overall opportunity simply isn't there for Bateman to enter into the weekly FLEX conversation. He'll be on the redraft radar this year, but more so as a waiver wire pickup that has some upside here or there versus a reliable weekly starter.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.

I was leading the charge for Bateman during the draft process, saying he reminded me of Keenan Allen. After landing with the Ravens, I'm not so excited about him anymore. The Ravens have targeted their wide receivers just 393 times over the last two seasons, a number that four teams hit in 2020 alone. The passing will likely increase in 2021 after the acquisitions of a few pass catchers, but they're not going to be changing their entire philosophy. We need targets in order for Bateman to break out, and it's tough to project him getting even 100 of them, making him a bench hopeful in fantasy.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.

I like Baltimore as a landing spot for real NFL, but maybe not great for fantasy. We'll see..Back up with Julio gone.

 If/when Julio is gone, Gage becomes the WR2 - a role he's thrived in
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
 WR40 in half-ppr last year, but a change in offense and a hopefully healthy Julio could diminish his production in '21.
