WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Russell Gage | Buccaneers WR

Russell Gage is signing with the Buccaneers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Gage is heading from Atlanta to the rival Bucs, and he will step in as the No. 3 wideout behind Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. Anyone playing in an offense with Tom Brady at quarterback is worth investing in, but Gage can get an added boost early in the season depending on the status of Godwin in his return from a torn ACL. The former sixth-round pick has caught 66+ passes in each of the past two years with the Falcons, and we expect he'll be undervalued as a quality FLEX in redraft leagues this season.

Russell Gage (ankle) ruled out for Week 5.

Gage won't be making the trip to London, and Calvin Ridley (personal) won't either, so the Falcons will be very undermanned at wide receiver for one of the thinnest depth charts in the league to begin with. Look for Olamide Zaccheaus and Christian Blake to have expanded roles, and perhaps Kyle Pitts will breakout across the pond.

Russell Gage | Buccaneers WR

Russell Gage (ankle) is considered week-to-week.

Gage appeared to get banged up a couple of different times in the Falcons' Week 2 loss to the Bucs, and he's now considered week-to-week and unlikely to play this Sunday against the Giants. The Falcons offense will probably look to rely on Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson even more often with Gage out of the lineup.

Russell Gage (knee) has returned for the Falcons.

Gage is back in there to start the second half for Atlanta, so it's good to see his knee injury isn't too serious.

Russell Gage | Buccaneers WR

Russell Gage (knee) is questionable to truth for the Falcons.

It's probably a pretty good sign that Gage hasn't been immediately ruled out with his knee issue. Hopefully he can return to today's game soon.

Russell Gage | Buccaneers WR

Russell Gage (concussion) is out for the rest of today's game.

The Falcons are now down two of their top three receivers against the Bears, as Julio Jones (hamstring) was inactive for the game. Before leaving, Gage caught two passes for 26 yards. Hopefully he's feeling better soon.

Russell Gage leaves preseason game with apparent hip injury.

Gage attempted to pull in a back-shoulder pass deep down the field and unfortunately came down wrong and appears to have been injured pretty badly. After staying on the ground for a few minutes, Gage needed a lot of help to get over to the sideline and then on a cart and into the locker room. This doesn't look good, but hopefully it's not as bad as it looks and Gage doesn't miss much time with this injury.

Russell Gage catches two passes in Week 17.

Gage gained 14 yards on his two receptions versus Tampa Bay. The sixth-round rookie from LSU had six receptions for 63 yards this season, as he was more of a special-teams contributor for Atlanta. Barring Mohamed Sanu leaving the team or an injury occurring, Gage won't be a recommended selection in 2019 fantasy drafts.

Russell Gage | Buccaneers WR

Russell Gage caught two passes for 33 yards in Sunday's win over Arizona.

Gage saw four targets as Atlanta rotated wideouts in a 40-14 victory, and it was good to see Julio Jones giving him some advice on the sidelines. Fantasy owners can look elsewhere for Week 16.

Russell Gage | Buccaneers WR

Russell Gage catches one pass in Week 13.

Gage gained seven yards on his lone reception versus the Ravens. Gage isn't a fantasy option at the moment.

Russell Gage | Buccaneers WR

Russell Gage catches first career pass in Week 6.

The rookie special teams ace from LSU received time on offense after Calvin Ridley (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (hip) left against the Bucs, and he caught his lone target for nine yards in the Falcons' victory. Justin Hardy will be the preferred fantasy option if Ridley and/or Sanu miss more time, but it's good to see the rookie step up on offense when called upon. Congrats to Gage on his first career reception.

Russell Gage | Buccaneers WR

The Falcons have selected LSU wide receiver Russell Gage with the 194th pick (sixth round) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Atlanta gets another SEC wideout to pair with Julio Jones and this year's first-round pick Calvin Ridley, but Russell Gage could make his biggest impact on special teams as a rookie. Gage didn't make much of an impact as a wideout for the Tigers, but the Falcons are getting a potential four-down player if he develops into a receiving option. He can be ignored for fantasy purposes for now.
