WR - ATL
Week 3 Outlook
Expert NoteView More Notes
He's not going away anytime soon. Since taking over for Mohamed Sanu in that role, Gage has totaled 87 targets over a span of 11 games, which amounts to 7.9 per game. Over the course of a season, that would amount to 127 targets. Here's a list of big-name players who saw fewer targets than that in 2019: DeVante Parker, Davante Adams, Courtland Sutton, Chris Godwin, Amari Cooper... do you catch my drift? His targets aren't worth as much as those guys, but he's a reliable player in fantasy because of his target floor. The Bears have Buster Skrine covering the slot, and while he played well in 2019, slot receivers have fared well this year. First, it was Danny Amendola racking up 5/81/0 on seven targets, and then it was Golden Tate catching all five of his targets for 47 yards. Again, not sexy, but worth a spot-start in such an injury-plagued week. With the Bears defending the run so well, we saw Matthew Stafford rack up 42 pass attempts while Daniel Jones hit the 40 mark. If the Falcons go down a similar path, which seems likely, Gage should be able to fill a WR4-type role on your fantasy team. He's reminding me of 2018 Adam Humphries who finished as a top-30 wide receiver, but you always knew his ceiling was limited.
