Russell Gage quiet in Week 4 loss

Russell Gage caught two of his four targets for 24 yards in a loss to the Chiefs in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact

Gage’s target share dropped from seeing 13 in Week 3 to just four in Week 4. The 26-year-old veteran has 152 yards and one touchdown on 21 receptions this season. Gage and the Bucs will look to get back on track against Atlanta in Week 5.

Russell Gage (hamstring) active for Week 4 vs. Chiefs

Russell Gage is officially active for Tampa Bay’s Week 4 matchup with the Chiefs on Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact

Gage is active and coming off a game in Week 3 that saw him go for 12/87/1 as the last man standing in Tampa Bay’s receiver room. Chris Godwin and Julio Jones are active this week and fantasy managers should expect another 12 catches or 13 targets in Week 4 but he might find the end zone. If you have waited until Sunday night to see if Gage is active, you probably don’t have many better options so start him.

Russell Gage (hamstring) expected to play in Week 4

Russell Gage, who is battling a hamstring injury, is expected to play in Week 4 against the Chiefs, according to Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport reports that Chris Godwin and Julio Jones are also expected to play, so long as pre-game testing goes well, which would put a damper on Gage's outlook. Given that it's a Sunday night game, fantasy managers should do their best to not rely on Gage, less so because of his injury status but rather because his fantasy outlook depends on the health of the Bucs' other receivers. At best, consider him an iffy flex, though boost his status if Godwin and/or Jones don't suit up.

Russell Gage (hamstring) limited in practice

Russell Gage (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice for the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

Gage is dealing with some hamstring soreness this week, and he remains day-to-day for the time being. It doesn't seem like he's at risk of being inactive now, but hamstring injuries are very susceptible to reaggravation. Fantasy managers should continue to pay attention to his status in the coming days.

Russell Gage stellar in Week 3 loss

Russell Gage caught 12 passes for 87 yards and one touchdown during the Buccaneers' 14-12 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Gage was the key beneficiary of the thin WR group Sunday, and he was clearly the go-to guy for Tom Brady. He caught an astounding 12 passes, and he was also able to grab a touchdown to cap it off. He will likely not see this kind of work when Mike Evans and Chris Godwin return, but he may be earning himself a bigger role in this offense than many project.
