WR - FA - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
Free agent wide receiver Taylor Gabriel announced his retirement from the NFL.
Gabriel was an undrafted free agent out of Abilene Christian University when he was signed by Cleveland. Gabriel caught 35 passes for 579 yards and six touchdowns with Atlanta in 2016. He went on to sign a four-year deal worth $26 million in 2018 with Chicago where he caught 67 passes for 688 yards and two touchdowns that season. Gabriel was released by the Bears in February of 2020 before he eventually opted out of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel has been ruled out for Sunday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs due to a concussion.
This had been the expectation after Gabriel failed to return to the practice field this week. He is still in the concussion protocol, and will likely be ruled out for the season if he does not see early week improvement. Anthony Miller should continue to soak up the number two receiver targets in his absence, but has a tough matchup against an underrated Chiefs secondary.
Chicago Bears wide receiver Taylor Gabriel has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys.
Gabriel is still dealing with concussion symptoms, and has yet to be cleared from the league's protocol. Gabriel did not return to the practice field this week, and could be facing a multi week absence. Anthony Miller has become fantasy viable in his absence, and should have locked up the number two receiver role for the rest of the season with his strong play.

Taylor Gabriel is dealing with concussion symptoms and has yet to be cleared from the league's mandated concussion protocol. Anthony Miller has secured number two receiver duties in his absence, which means Gabriel may struggle for fantasy relevance even when he does return to the team. He should be considered a drop candidate for those who have more interesting options on their league's waiver wire.

Gabriel suffered a concussion in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Giants. He did not practice this week and has been ruled out for Thursday's contest against the Lions. Anthony Miller should see additional targets with Gabriel sidelined.
