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.

Russell Gage to play multiple spots this season

Atlanta's HC Arthur Smith envisions WR Russell Gage playing multiple spots this season.

Fantasy Impact

Gage enjoyed a nice season in 2020. He received 109 targets while catching 72 passes for 786 yards and four touchdowns. From Weeks 11-17, Gage scored 10 or more fantasy points, four times. He showed very good consistency and was a solid FLEX option in a high-octane passing offense. Now, with Julio gone, Gage is set to improve his numbers and will be moving around in different spots. He's a fine WR4 with upside in fantasy drafts.
