Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Gage looked to be a solid play last week due to the matchup. He was injured in the first quarter, but he came back in and put up a respectable fantasy outing. However, Gage is still nothing more than a low-end FLEX play.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are 28th against fantasy wide receivers, Anderson should be a solid WR1 at home this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He ranks fourth in the league while averaging 2.76 yards per route run, which is typically a great indicator of future success. He's been the opposite of the receiver he was in New York, as he's been as consistent as they come, racking up at least 55 yards in every game, including 74-plus yards in 6-of-7 games. He's a legitimate borderline WR1 with his production this year, which is not something anyone expected to say. Now he heads into a matchup with the Falcons who have allowed 10.55 yards per target to receivers, which is the highest mark in the league, and it's amounted to 223.0 yards per game for them. Anderson will primarily see A.J. Terrell in coverage, a rookie cornerback who's allowed a ridiculous 21-of-24 passing for 287 yards and two touchdowns in his coverage. Anderson hit them up for 8/112/0 in the first game, so there's no hesitation starting him as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 here.We talked about Gage the last two weeks, saying he is a fine bye week replacement now that Julio Jones is back in the lineup, as he just makes the entire offense run that much smoother. Gage has caught 10 balls for 119 yards over the last two games, which is perfect for someone who's available on most waiver wires. The matchup this week is tougher than we expected. The Panthers have Corn Elder covering the slot, and he's done a good job, allowing just 10 catches for 52 yards and no touchdowns on 16 targets. The only slot-heavy receiver who produced against them was Keenan Allen, who did most of his damage outside of Elder's coverage. Knowing the Panthers have allowed the second-fewest yards per reception and the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to wide receivers, it may not be the best time to play him as anything more than a WR5 with minimal upside.
