  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Non-factor in win

    Zaccheaus caught one of two targets for five yards during Sunday's 21-14 win over the Jaguars.

    Zaccheaus appeared to be trending in the right direction after racking up eight catches for 103 yards and two touchdowns over a three-game stretch, but he was a non-factor once again in Week 12. Slot man Russell Gage (six catches for 62 yards and a touchdown) continues to be Matt Ryan's favorite wideout while Calvin Ridley (personal) remains away from the team. However, Atlanta's offense also remains heavily reliant on its tight ends and running backs in the passing game, which significantly impacts Zaccheaus' fantasy upside.

  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Sees five targets in loss

    Zaccheaus caught three of his five targets for 23 yards during Thursday's 25-0 loss to the Patriots.

    Zaccheaus' five targets and three receptions tied him with Kyle Pitts for second on the team, but Russell Gage paced all Falcons' pass catchers with five catches on eight targets. With Calvin Ridley (personal) on the non-football injury list, the 5-foot-8 wideout has totaled 15 targets, eight receptions, 93 yards and two touchdowns over his last three games. Zaccheaus appears to be trending in the right direction, but he will likely remain a risky option despite the uptick in production.

  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Targeted seven times in loss

    Zaccheaus caught two of seven targets for 22 yards during Sunday's 43-3 loss to the Cowboys.

    Zaccheaus was targeted a season-high seven times Week 10, but he only was able to record two receptions. The seven targets tied him with Kyle Pitts for the team high, and his 22 receiving yards were good for the second most, behind Pitts' 60. With Calvin Ridley (personal) on the non-football injury list, Zaccheaus has totaled 10 targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns over his last two games. Despite the uptick in production, Zaccheaus will likely remain a risky flex option against the Patriots in Week 11.

  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Scores twice in Week 9 win

    Zaccheaus caught all three of his targets for 58 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 27-25 win over the Saints.

    Zaccheaus wasn't targeted often, but he made the most of his few opportunities. He secured touchdowns of three and six yards in the second and fourth quarters, respectively, and added a 49-yard reception in the third. Zaccheaus came into this game with just one touchdown all season and no more than 32 yards in any previous contest, so he'll be tough to trust in Week 10 against the Cowboys, even with top wide receiver Calvin Ridley (personal) still on the non-football injury list.

  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Non-factor in loss

    Zaccheaus caught his only target for 12 yards during the Falcons' 19-13 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

    Zaccheaus continues to be a non-factor for Atlanta's offense. With Calvin Ridley (personal) out for the second time in the past three games, he played 21 snaps -- third highest among wideouts -- but only recorded one target. Matt Ryan continues to utilize his tight ends and running backs more often when his star pass catcher is out, and with Ridley away from the team for an unspecified amount of time, that trend will likely continue, leaving Zaccheaus as an unreliable fantasy option even in deeper leagues.

  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Hauls in only target Sunday

    Zaccheaus caught his only target for 13 yards during Sunday's 30-28 win over the Dolphins.

    Zaccheaus reverted back to his reserve role with Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage active for Week 7. The 24-year-old wideout played 12 offensive snaps and finished sixth on the team in receiving. Atlanta's offense has started to pick up steam, scoring 30, 27 and 30 points in their last three contests, so if they are able to continue to put points on the board and move the ball, then more looks may start to come the receivers way. But until that happens, Zaccheaus likely won't be a viable fantasy option in standard leagues.

  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Sees four targets in Week 5

    Zaccheaus caught two of his four targets for 20 yards during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Jets.

    The Falcons were without Calvin Ridley (personal) and Russell Gage (ankle), so Zaccheaus entered the contest as the Falcons No. 1 receiver. However, that didn't warrant any more targets as Matt Ryan once again relied on his tight ends and running backs during the Week 5 win. It's hard to envision a better situation for Zaccheaus to succeed than the one he was in Sunday, so it's safe to assume his role will continue to be limited throughout the season.

  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Could be team's top receiver Week 5

    Zaccheaus is expected to head into Sunday's game against the Jets in London as the Atlanta's No. 1 receiver after both Calvin Ridley (personal) and Russell Gage (ankle) were ruled out for the contest, Scott Bair of the Falcons' official site reports.

    While Gage missed both of the past two contests, Zaccheaus had already enjoyed an elevated profile in the Atlanta offense, playing 96 of the Falcons' 130 offensive snaps (74 percent) during that stretch while collecting four receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown on nine targets. With Gage out for another week and Ridley's 10.5 targets per game now up for grabs, Zaccheaus looks like he'll have one of the best opportunities of his young career to produce a useful fantasy line. While Zaccheaus should absorb some of the vacated target volume, he shouldn't be expected to serve as a 1:1 replacement for Ridley. Instead, expect the likes of Zaccheaus and fellow pass catchers Kyle Pitts, Cordarrelle Patterson, Mike Davis, Hayden Hurst, Tajae Sharpe, Christian Blake and Frank Darby to all enjoy upticks in targets and snaps, to varying degrees.

  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Catches one pass Sunday

    Zaccheaus caught one of his three targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 34-30 loss to Washington.

    With Russell Gage (ankle) out again, Zaccheaus had another opportunity to seize a bigger role in the offense. However, Cordarrelle Patterson stole the show against Washington with three touchdowns. Even though Zaccheaus is operating as the No. 2 wideout behind Calvin Ridley, he is more like the fifth option in the passing game. Matt Ryan relies heavily on his tight ends -- Kyle Pitts and Hayden Hurst -- and has developed a connection with the multi-talented Patterson.

  • Falcons' Olamide Zaccheaus: Catches touchdown in win

    Zaccheaus caught three of his six targets for 32 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 17-14 win over the Giants.

    Zaccheaus got the start in Week 3 with Russell Gage (ankle) ruled out for Sunday's contest. The 24-year-old wideout didn't disappoint as he hauled in his sixth career touchdown reception. The undrafted free agent had a solid season -- notching 72 catches for 786 yards and four touchdowns -- for the Falcons last year. His role was expected to grow during the 2021 campaign with Julio Jones departing to Tennessee, but until Week 3, that hadn't been the case. If Gage remains sidelined for Week 4, Zacchaeus could build off his solid performance against the Giants and solidify himself as a consistent option in Atlanta's passing attack.
