  • Falcons' Russell Gage: Productive in Week 12 win

    Gage caught six of seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-14 win over Jacksonville.

    Gage put Atlanta ahead 21-3 with a 12-yard touchdown in the third quarter, doubling his season touchdown total. He also led the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. If Calvin Ridley (personal) remains on the reserve/non-football injury list, Gage will continue to work as the Falcons' de facto No. 1 wide receiver in Week 13 against the Buccaneers.

  • Falcons' Russell Gage: Paces pass catchers in loss

    Gage brought in five of eight targets for 49 yards in the Falcons' 25-0 loss to the Patriots on Thursday night.

    Gage led the Falcons in receptions, receiving yards and targets, although considering the team netted all of 125 passing yards, those numbers didn't add up to much from a fantasy perspective. The veteran possession receiver was at least able to bounce back from his second catchless effort over the previous three games in Week 10, sending him into a favorable Week 12 road matchup against the Jaguars a week from Sunday with some momentum.

  • Falcons' Russell Gage: No receptions in blowout loss

    Gage did not record a reception on three targets in Sunday's 43-3 loss to the Cowboys.

    Gage appeared to be on pace for a solid game when he made an impressive leaping catch on a deep ball in the first quarter, but Dallas challenged the ruling and the potential big play was overturned as the ball slightly grazed the turf. The 25-year-old only saw two more targets before the Falcons mailed it in for what turned out to be a blowout loss. Olamide Zaccheaus had two receptions for 22 yards on seven targets, so Gage's inconsistent play this year may have moved him down the target pecking order in Atlanta. He will try to get back on track against a tough Patriots defense this upcoming Thursday.
