Don't look now, but Gage may be walking into a dream role with his new team and is definitely one of the players at or near the top of my sleepers list. I'm a big Matt Ryan fan, but Gage goes from Ryan to The Goat at QB, and with fellow WR Chris Godwin out for the foreseeable future while rehabbing his knee, and TE Rob Gronkowski recently announcing his retirement, Gage is essentially the last man standing when it comes to No.2 targets.

Over the last two seasons, Gage has come into his own with 138 catches for over 1500 yards, and last year, when the Falcons were hit with the loss of Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley in the second half of the season, he responded with two 100-yard games and three double-digit target games. But he's not a true WR1 and had his best season in 2020 when playing as the WR3 with both of those guys mentioned above. That bodes well for later this season when Godwin eventually returns. Gage can easily slide into the slot, where he's very comfortable.

Look for Gage to go feast or famine early this season. Defenses will slide coverage to Evans and Gage will have to prove he can command help in coverage. Later, working out of the slot, he will have a chance to develop even better chemistry with Brady as a catch and run target in the middle of the field. I think he's a solid WR2 candidate to start the season on a team that throws the ball as much as anyone in the NFL.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Gametime decision for Leonard Fournette, hip injury
Limited in practice
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 25, 12:59 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bowles says Vita Vea and Leonard Fournette are both making progress, will be game-day decisions Sunday. Only WR Russell Gage and G Luke Goedeke ruled out for Browns game. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Fournette has been limited in practice this week with a hip injury and it sounds like the Bucs will take it up to gametime with him. If Giovani Bernard (ankle) gets activated off the IR this weekend, that may give us a clue as to Fournette's status on Sunday. If Fournette sits, then Rachaad White will be a priority play against a weak Bengals rush defense.
