Player Outlook
Reunited with coach Arthur Smith last year following three seasons with the Titans and a brief stopover in Minnesota, Sharpe was unable to break through on a Falcons depth chart desperate to find answers at receiver in 2021, topping 22 receiving yards only twice all year. Now he heads to Chicago, where he'll encounter a downgrade at quarterback and no guarantee of beating out a potentially better collection of talent behind Darnell Mooney to what he encountered in Atlanta last year. Sharpe is not worth rostering until he starts to see meaningful playing time.

  • Bears' Tajae Sharpe: Leads team in receiving

    Sharpe caught both of his targets for 44 yards in the Bears' 19-14 victory over the Chiefs on Saturday. Sharpe played snaps with Justin Fields and the first-team offense, and he made an acrobatic one-handed catch near the sideline while keeping his feet inbounds. He's in the mix for a roster spot, and he took advantage of his first preseason opportunity.

  • Bears' Tajae Sharpe: No longer on NFI list

    Sharpe (undisclosed) was removed from the active/non-football injury list Tuesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Heading into his seventh season, Sharpe has been cleared to begin practicing with the Bears, as he'll have an opportunity to rejuvenate his NFL career. The seventh-year wideout spent his 2021 campaign with the Falcons, where he accounted for 25 receptions and 230 yards in 15 games. Along with Sharpe, the team also brought in a plethora of veteran receivers, including N'Keal Harry, Equanimeous St. Brown, Dante Pettis and David Moore to compete behind top options Darnell Mooney and Byron Pringle. Expect Sharpe to jump back into the mix this week and compete for a roster spot.

  • Bears' Tajae Sharpe: On NFI list to open camp

    Sharpe (undisclosed) was placed on the active/non-football injury list Wednesday. Sharpe signed with the Bears in May, but he will now open training camp on the NFI list with an unspecified injury. The 27-year-old appeared in 15 games with the Falcons last season and caught 25 passes for 230 yards over those contests. He'll compete for a depth role at wide receiver once healthy.

  • Bears' Tajae Sharpe: Heading to Chicago

    Sharpe agreed to a one-year contract with the Bears on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Sharpe appeared in 15 games for Atlanta during the 2021 campaign and caught 25 of 37 targets for 230 yards and zero touchdowns. The 27-year-old is expected to compete for a depth role at receiver with Chicago in training camp.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Two targets, zero catches

    Sharpe drew two targets but failed to record a reception during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints. Sharpe returned from a two-game absence but remained relatively uninvolved in Atlanta's offense. In his first season with the Falcons, the fifth-year wideout hauled in 25 catches for 230 yards but didn't record a touchdown across 15 appearances. He's set to become a free agent this offseason, but it's unclear what type of market he will draw or if Atlanta will be interested in a reunion. Barring Calvin Ridley (personal) returning to the team in 2022, Atlanta likely will be in search of weapons to pair with 2021 first-round pick Kyle Pitts, so a potential return to the Falcons isn't out of the question for Sharpe.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Comes off COVID-19 list

    Sharpe (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports. The Falcons will get two of their key pass catchers back in Sharpe and tight end Hayden Hurst ahead of Sunday's season finale against the Saints, after both sat out a Week 17 loss to the Bills upon testing positive for the virus. Before landing on the list, Sharpe had helped fill the hole in the lineup left by Calvin Ridley (personal), who left the team after Week 7 to focus on his mental well-being. In his eight appearances with Ridley out of the lineup, Sharpe cobbled together a 15-130-0 receiving line on 23 targets, production that has largely kept him off the fantasy radar despite playing significant snaps in all of those games.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Won't suit up Week 17

    Sharpe (illness) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Bills after the Falcons didn't activate him from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to Saturday's deadline for Week 17 roster moves, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. He's one of two key Atlanta pass catchers that will remain on the list for the Week 17 contest, joining tight end Hayden Hurst (illness). Sharpe's absence will likely allow Olamide Zaccheaus and Christian Blake to join Russell Gage in three-receiver sets, while the blocking-oriented Lee Smith will serve as the top backup to starting tight end Kyle Pitts.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Appears unlikely to play

    Sharpe (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions. Sharpe wasn't able to practice in any capacity this week while nursing the foot injury, but the Falcons haven't completely closed the door on him playing Sunday. That said, unless he shows more improvement than expected when he's evaluated early Sunday, he likely will wind up on the inactive list for the first time all season. Sharpe has taken on an increased role on offense since Calvin Ridley went on personal leave Week 7, but the expected absences of both players this week should clear the way for Olamide Zaccheaus to serve as quarterback Matt Ryan's top option at outside receiver, while Russell Gage works out of the slot. Kyle Pitts also could pick up more snaps while lining up out wide, which would allow him and fellow tight end Hayden Hurst to share the field more often.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Doesn't practice again

    Sharpe (foot) didn't participate in Thursday's practice session. Sharpe sustained a foot injury in Sunday's loss to the 49ers and was considered day-to-day to begin the week. He'll presumably need to practice in some capacity Friday if he hopes to play Sunday against Detroit.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Considered day-to-day

    Sharpe (foot) is considered day-to-day and won't practice Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Sharpe suffered the foot injury during Sunday's loss to the 49ers, exiting early before he caught a pass. He's been working as the No. 2 receiver in recent weeks, but the role hasn't translated to many targets. An absence in the Falcons' Week 16 game against the Lions could open up more work for Olamide Zaccheaus and Christian Blake.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Won't return Sunday

    Sharpe (foot) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the 49ers, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports. Sharpe will be unavailable late in Sunday's matchup after he sustained a foot injury in the third quarter. He failed to haul in his lone target prior to his departure. The severity of Sharpe's injury isn't yet clear, but his next chance to return will be Dec. 26 against Detroit.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Questionable to return

    Sharpe is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the 49ers due to a foot injury, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Sharpe sustained his foot injury late in the third quarter Sunday, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return to the contest. If he remains out, Olamide Zaccheaus and Christian Blake could see increased looks late in the game.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Catches one pass Sunday

    Sharpe caught one of his two targets for seven yards during Sunday's 29-21 win over the Panthers. Sharpe once again took a backseat to slot man Russell Gage (four catches for 64 yards) and tight end Kyle Pitts (five catches for 61 yards). Matt Ryan also continues to rely heavily on his running backs in the passing game, as Mike Davis and Cordarrelle Patterson combined for 11 targets, seven catches and 43 yards. As long as Calvin Ridley (personal) remains away from the team, Sharpe is expected to garner plenty of snaps, but his meager production makes it difficult for fantasy managers to trust him on a weekly basis.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Sees five targets in loss

    Sharpe caught three of his five targets for 10 yards during Sunday's 30-17 loss to the Buccaneers. Sharpe finished tied with Olamide Zaccheaus and Cordarrelle Patterson for third on the team in targets, but Sharpe's 10 receiving yards were only better than Qadree Ollison and Keith Smith. The 6-foot-2 wideout continues to operate as the No. 1 outside receiver while Calvin Ridley (personal) remains out, but the designation has not yielded the expected results. Matt Ryan continues to rely on slot man Russell Gage (11 receptions for 130 yards), tight end Kyle Pitts (four receptions for 48 yards) and his trio of running backs (eight receptions for 99 yards) in the pass game. As long as Ridley is away from the team, Sharpe is expected to garner plenty of snaps, but his sporadic production makes it difficult for fantasy managers to trust him on a weekly basis.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Two more catches Sunday

    Sharpe caught two of his three targets for 22 yards during Sunday's 21-14 win over the Jaguars. Sharpe continues to operate as the No. 1 wideout while Calvin Ridley (personal) remains out, but the designation has not yielded the expected results. He has caught two passes in back-to-back games, but he continues to be out-paced by slot man Russell Gage (six receptions on seven targets) and rookie tight end Kyle Pitts (two receptions on six targets).

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Catches two passes Thursday

    Sharpe caught two of four targets for 21 yards during Thursday's 25-0 loss to the Patriots. Sharpe continues to operate as the No. 1 wideout while Calvin Ridley (personal) remains out, but the designation has not yielded results. The 6-foot-2 wide receiver registered his most targets, receptions and yards since Week 8, but he was still out-paced by Russell Gage, Kyle Pitts and Olamide Zaccheaus. As long as Ridley is away from the team, Sharpe is expected to garner plenty of snaps, but his sporadic production makes it difficult for fantasy managers to trust him on a weekly basis.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Non-factor once again

    Sharpe caught his only target for zero yards during Sunday's 43-3 loss to the Cowboys. Sharpe continues to operate as the Falcons' No. 1 wideout while Calvin Ridley (personal) remains out, but that designation has not resulted in increased production. Shape was out-targeted by Russell Gage, Olamide Zaccheaus and Frank Darby on Sunday and has been a non-factor in Atlanta's passing game the last two weeks. As long as Ridley is away from the team, Sharpe will likely earn plenty of snaps, but his sporadic production makes it difficult for fantasy managers to trust him on a week-to-week basis.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Non-factor in Week 9

    Sharpe caught his only target for 12 yards during Sunday's 27-25 win over the Saints. Sharpe continues to operate as the Falcons' No. 1 wideout while Calvin Ridley (personal) remains out, but that designation has not resulted in more production, as Matt Ryan relies on his running backs and tight ends in the passing game. Slot man Russell Gage led all Atlanta wide receivers in targets and yards Sunday, while Cordarrelle Patterson (six catches for 126 yards) led all pass catchers in receiving yards. As long as Ridley is away from the team, Sharpe likely will earn plenty of snaps, but his sporadic production makes it difficult for fantasy managers to trust him.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Starting for Ridley

    Sharpe will start Sunday's game against the Panthers. Calvin Ridley was a late scratch for Sunday's contest due to a personal matter, and Sharpe will receive the start in his absence. Sharpe also started Week 5 for the Falcons and caught four of five targets for 53 yards while playing 80 percent of the offensive snaps. Russell Gage and tight end Kyle Pitts should also have increased target shares with Ridley unavailable.

  • Falcons' Tajae Sharpe: Catches both targets in Week 7

    Sharpe caught both of his targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 30-28 win over the Dolphins. Sharpe played the third most snaps (14) of any Falcons wideout, but he finished fifth on the team in receiving yards, as Atlanta continues to rely heavily on their tight ends and running backs in the passing game. Atlanta's offense has put up 30, 27 and 30 points in their last three contests, and if they can continue to score at a high clip and move the ball, then more passes might get disbursed to the receivers.
