Taylor Gabriel (foot) misses Sunday's practice

Taylor Gabriel sat out Sunday's practice with a foot injury.

Fantasy Impact

Gabriel is expected to be on the field in all three-receiver sets for the Bears this season. Gabriel had 33 catches for 378 yards and one score with the Falcons last season in a similar role. He could get a few more looks in the Bears offense and will likely have a game or two where he is worth starting in standard fantasy leagues. The difficult part will be determining when those games will come. Gabriel is the most valuable in a Best Ball league.

Taylor Gabriel to have big role in Bears' offense

Chicago Tribune Bears writer Brad Biggs thinks that Taylor Gabriel is not only the favorite to land the starting slot receiver job in Chicago, but that the newly-signed free agent will have a "big role" in Matt Nagy's new scheme.

Fantasy Impact

Gabriel mostly played outside receiver in Atlanta, but Biggs thinks that the Bears new staff will give him every opportunity to earn his new four-year $26 million contract. With Allen Robinson a lock to start outside, Gabriel could spend some time opposite of Robinson or move into the slot if Kevin White or Anthony Miller are able to earn bigger roles. Regardless of where he lines up, Gabriel could be a nice late-round sleeper if he does indeed secure a larger role in what is expected to be an innovative Bears passing attack.

Taylor Gabriel will sign with Chicago Bears on 4-year deal

Taylor Gabriel will join the Chicago Bears on a 4-year deal. The Bears have also agreed to bring aboard Allen Robinson as they look to strengthen their receiving corps.

Fantasy Impact

The Bears seem intent on giving Mitch Trubisky as many weapons as possible for his second season and Gabriel should offer help in that department. The speedster should be a nice compliment to Allen Robinson as the duo will offer size and speed opposite one another.

Taylor Gabriel with just one catch against Minnesota

Taylor Gabriel caught one of his two targets for six yards, and added one carry for five yards in the Falcons' loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Gabriel has been largely uninvolved in recent weeks, and remains merely a boom or bust play that is more often a bust. Ignore him for fantasy purposes in all but the deepest of leagues.

Taylor Gabriel with three catches for 58 yards against Cowboys

Taylor Gabriel caught all three of his targets for 58 yards on Sunday against the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Gabriel now has three catches for at least 56 yards receiving in each of his past two games. While those totals don't sound like much, they represent a level of consistency we usually don't see from the speedy receiver. Gabriel and the Falcons will take on the Seahawks next week on Monday Night Football.
