Gage came back into the lineup this past week and was utilized much different than what he has been in the past. Gage lined up predominantly in the slot last season for Atlanta, but this past week against Miami he lined up out wide 52% of the snaps and he was utilized deep downfield as well - as evidenced by his 49-yard receiving touchdown. Gage is an intriguing name to keep our eye on moving forward if he's going to be moved around the formation more than what he has been in years past. If he's not exclusively playing in the slot anymore, the opportunity for him to return fantasy football value is much greater. He's worth picking up if he's available on your waiver wire, but we shouldn't be ready to plug him into our lineups as anything more than a low-end FLEX play in week eight.
