  • Gage corralled nine of his 11 targets for 91 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Buccaneers. Calvin Ridley outpaced Gage by one in the targets department, but the former LSU Tiger prevailed over his Crimson Tide teammate in establishing team-highs in both catches and receiving yards. Gage proved himself to be a productive option with Julio Jones (hamstring) unavailable for the final quarter of the regular season, totaling 23 catches for 264 yards and two receiving TDs while adding a 39-yard passing score to Ridley during a Week 14 loss to the Chargers. Gage's season-long totals of 72 receptions, 786 yards and five total TDs all represent career bests as he enters his fourth year under contract with the Falcons in 2021.

  • Gage secured four of five targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 17-14 loss to Kansas City. He equaled Hayden Hurst for second in targets behind Calvin Ridley's team high of nine, but Gage was held under 50 receiving yards for the first time over his past four outings. The 24-year-old had established himself as a high-floor fantasy option of late with four or more catches in four straight games, adding two receiving scores and a 39-yard passing touchdown between Weeks 13 and 15. Sunday's outing, however, represented his second-lowest receiving yards total since Week 5. The Falcons will now face off against the Buccaneers to close out 2020, an opponent against whom Gage accumulated five catches for 68 yards and a TD when the NFC South rivals last played Dec. 20.

  • Gage caught five of 10 targets for 68 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 31-27 loss to the Buccaneers. Gage delivered an impactful opening drive, pulling in a 27-yard catch on a deep post before notching his fourth score of the season by virtue of a five-yard catch the very next play. The third-year wideout now finds himself in the midst of a three-game scoring streak after throwing a 39-yard TD to Calvin Ridley during last Sunday's loss to the Chargers. With seven or more targets in each of his past three appearances, Gage's anticipated volume for Week 16 may largely hinge on whether Julio Jones (hamstring) can return to the lineup.

  • Gage secured five of seven targets for 82 yards, adding a 39-yard touchdown pass during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Chargers. Gage logged four-plus receptions and 50 or more receiving yards for a second consecutive game, but his long TD pass to Calvin Ridley was undoubtedly a crucial addition to his output. Gadget-play TDs such as these may come few and far between for Gage, but regardless of the route taken, the 24-year-old delivered for those who relied on him in fantasy playoff matchups. A Week 15 showdown against Tampa Bay provides for an encouraging forecast, as the Buccaneers have surrendered the ninth-most receiving yards to opposing WRs.

  • Gage corralled three of his five targets for 34 receiving yards during Sunday's 43-6 win against the Raiders. Gage earned his fourth start of the 2020 campaign while Julio Jones (hamstring) missed Atlanta's Week 12 matchup because of injury. The third-year wideout from LSU finished tied for third on the team in targets behind Calvin Ridley (nine) and Hayden Hurst (eight), but he was held under 35 receiving yards for the third time in his past four outings. If Jones is able to make it back for a Week 13 matchup against the Saints, Gage would slide down to the No. 3 position in the receiving corps. He reeled in seven of a season-high 12 targets for 58 receiving yards when the Falcons and Saints last met Nov. 22.
