The landing spot seemed much better for Gabriel before the Bears landed Anthony Miller in the draft, someone who will come in and demand targets from the get-go. Still, Gabriel is a speedy wide receiver that Matt Nagy will likely use in a variety of ways. Some have said he's the closest comp to Tyreek Hill on the Bears, but I'd disagree on that. He's a field-stretcher who will see a lot of one-on-one coverage with Allen Robinson playing on the opposite side of the field. He's not going to be a weekly contributor, but think about someone like Travis Benjamin in 2017.

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.
