  • Cardinals' Christian Blake: Inks deal in Arizona

    Blake signed a contract with the Cardinals on Monday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Blake will get a look with the Cardinals after spending the previous three seasons in Atlanta. The Northern Illinois product played in 16 games in each of the last two seasons but only amassed 17 receptions on 28 targets for 166 yards.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Sees one target in loss

    Blake failed to haul in his only target during Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Saints.

    Blake finished the 2021 campaign with four receptions for 25 yards across 16 appearances. The 25-year-old wideout is set to become a free agent this offseason, but it's unclear what type of market he will draw.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Held without catch in Week 17

    Blake was unable to haul in his only target during Sunday's 29-15 loss to the Bills.

    With Calvin Ridley (personal) still away from the team and Tajae Sharpe (illness) sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols, Blake played 26 of Atlanta's 53 offensive snaps. However, the 25-year-old wideout was held catchless, as Kyle Pitts and Russell Gage once again led the Falcons in targets and receiving yards. Blake's role likely will be diminished if Sharpe returns Week 18, but even if Sharpe misses a third straight game, Blake profiles as little more than a dart-throw lineup option in deeper leagues.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Could get run as No. 3 wideout

    Blake could serve as the Falcons' No. 3 receiver behind Russell Gage and Olamide Zaccheaus in Sunday's game against the Bills with Tajae Sharpe (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    While Sharpe was sidelined with a foot injury during the Week 16 win over the Lions, Blake ranked third among Atlanta wideouts in snaps (11, 24 percent), catching his lone target for a five-yard gain. Rather than regularly rolling out three-receiver sets, Falcons head coach Arthur Smith leaned more heavily on two tight-end arrangements featuring Kyle Pitts and Hayden Hurst, the latter of whom played 48 percent of the offensive snaps. With Hurst joining Sharpe among the growing list of Atlanta players on the COVID-19 list, Smith could be less inclined to use two tight-end sets Week 17, which could open up more reps for Blake. Even so, the 25-year-old profiles as little more than a dart-throw lineup option in deeper leagues.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Catches first pass since Week 5

    Blake caught his only target for five yards during Sunday's 20-16 win over the Lions.

    With Calvin Ridley (personal) still away from the team and Tajae Sharpe (foot) sidelined, Blake played double-digit offensive snaps for just the fourth time this season. The 25-year-old caught his first pass since Week 5 and just his fourth of the season. Barring additional injuries to Atlanta's pass catchers, Blake isn't expected to crack fantasy relevancy against the Bills in Week 17.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Catches season-high two passes

    Blake caught two of his four targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 27-20 win over the Jets.

    With Calvin Ridley (personal) and Russell Gage (ankle) sidelined, Blake played a season-high 15 offensive snaps, and it resulted in his best offensive performance of the season. All wideouts' fantasy production remains limited in Atlanta's offense this year, as Matt Ryan continues to rely on his tight ends and running backs in the passing game.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Could be No. 3 receiver Sunday

    Blake could see reps as the No. 3 receiver Sunday against the Jets in London behind projected starting wideouts Olamide Zaccheaus and Tajae Sharpe, Scott Bair of Atlanta's official site reports.

    Blake has played more snaps on special teams (31) than on offense (18) through the Falcons' first four games, but he'll likely be thrust into a larger role at receiver out of necessity with the top two options at the position -- Calvin Ridley (personal) and Russell Gage (ankle) -- both inactive. Zaccheaus and Sharpe are expected to serve as their primary replacements, but Blake looks like he may have the edge over sixth-round rookie Frank Darby and practice-squad call-up Juwan Green for the third spot at receiver. Even if that's the case, the Falcons may not rely heavily on three-wide sets, as the team has two quality tight ends on hand in Kyle Pitts and Hayden Hurst.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Plays five offensive snaps Week 1

    Blake played five offensive snaps and didn't record a target during Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

    Blake appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons last season and recorded 13 catches for 141 yards. Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage were the only Atlanta wideouts to see targets during Week 1 as the majority of Matt Ryan's throws were check downs to the running backs and tight ends.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Ends 2020 season with 13 catches

    Blake wasn't targeted across his 11 offensive snaps in Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Buccaneers.

    Blake suited up for the Falcons' entire 16-game slate in 2020, but he handled only a bit role in the passing attack, finishing with 13 receptions (on 18 targets) for 141 yards and no touchdowns. The 24-year-old will be an exclusive rights free agent this upcoming offseason, but look for the Falcons to retain him and give him a chance to fight for a depth role at receiver during training camp.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Logs 17-yard reception

    Blake caught his lone target for a 17-yard gain during Sunday's 43-6 win against the Raiders.

    With Olamide Zaccheaus going down in the first quarter of Sunday's contest due to a toe injury, Blake was elevated to the No. 3 position in Atlanta's receiving corps. That promotion, of course, was also prompted because of Julio Jones (hamstring) sitting out the game entirely. Matt Ryan looked in Blake's direction on just one occasion Sunday, but the 24-year-old now has an active streak of four consecutive outings with a catch. He fielded a season-high 50 offensive snaps against the Raiders, but he will only approach that level of involvement again Week 13 versus New Orleans if Jones and/or Zaccheaus are unavailable.

  • Falcons' Christian Blake: Hauls in two passes

    Blake secured two of his four targets for 28 receiving yards during Sunday's 24-9 loss to New Orleans.

    With Julio Jones off the field for much of the second and third quarters Sunday while tending to a hamstring issue, Blake posted his second consecutive outing of greater than 25 receiving yards. In eight appearances between Weeks 1 and 8, on 113 combined offensive snaps, Blake mustered just 8.3 receiving yards per contest. Next, Atlanta will host a Las Vegas defense that allowed three different Chiefs receivers to post six-plus catches on Sunday Night Football.
